I really wanted to love this place, but the service ruined the experience. It was a fairly busy Saturday morning. Because it’s such a hole in the wall place, the only place to wait was through the aisles of booths. The servers kept barking at all of us waiting in line. I work in a restaurant, so I understand how... More

This diner was very close to our hotel and the food was pretty good especially the biscuits! The staff gave that southern hospitality that you would expect which was very welcoming. The only thing is the prices were a little high for a diner.

Breakfast or lunch, this colorful place should please. Staff been there 100 years...literally, and it's full of regulars who can't make it a week without fried porkchops and eggs. Great coffee, breakfast the way you want it, and friendly service. Gets busy, prepare to wait here as well. But it's a good stop for some home cooking that you can't... More

The iced tea was good and waitress efficient. That is the only positive. Food was mediocre at best. I would never recommend this to anyone seeking good southern food.

The food was great service courteous...and there wasn't a long wait for food. You did have to wait to get in...but it wasn't a horrible wait. It was worth it!

My first visit on a Saturday morning. Very busy, but only waited 15 minutes for a solo spot at the counter. Waitress was only interested in the regular customers. I have to ask several times to refill coffee. I ordered eggs medium and they came barely cooked. I did not eat them. I did eat the toast and sausage. Fair... More

We traveled to Atlanta for a few days and chose to eat here because of the reviews and family suggestions. I can say, we were not disappointed. Let me start by saying the place is very busy and smallllll inside. My husband is 6'5 so the seating for him was a little tight. I opted for the corn beef hash,... More

We visited the Silver Skillet for the first time this past weekend. We walked from our hotel (Marriott Suites - Midtown) over to the Silver Skillet. The restaurant was very busy, but we didn't have to wait long to be seated. Our server was very prompt and courteous. I order the grilled chicken omelette with grits and it was delicious!... More

Decided to hunt down the Silver Skillet while on holiday in Atlanta as we wanted a proper American diner experience. From the decor to the staff, the Silver Skillet has clearly done its best to maintain a 1950's diner feel - and we loved it! The prices did give away that you were paying for more than just the food... More
