“Our local, very dependable, favorite diner”
Reviewed April 14, 2012

We have eaten at The Skillet for many years, usually once a week depending on the year. It is almost always bustling, but the turnover is quick so it is never a long wait if it is filled up. They have the best Chicken Parm anywhere, and my favorite staple is the Roast Beef Club. They are super nice -- and very willing to make substiutions. Breakfasts are good too, although we usually come for dinner. The Skillet is not the place for a fancy meal. It is a hometown, neighborhood diner. The service is fast and friendly, the food is solidly reliable and you can't beat the prices. You haven't experienced Killingworth until you eat at the Skillet.

“Great Food, Generous Portions, Great Service - Outstanding Value”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

Its not exotic fare. nor does it claim to be. Just rock solid food with a menu full of choices and daily specials. Breakfast, lunch or diner - you can't miss. I live locally and have been a frequent patron for 15 years.

“Great food, service and homeowner feel”
Reviewed March 15, 2012 via mobile

You're not going to the RITZ ... You are going to THE SKILLET. And everyone in town knows and loves the place. Simpe foods made great. Fantastic service by the same people year in and out. Family owned. Best soda selection I have ever seen (love the diet root beer). Have eaten here 1-2 times a week for years. Can't miss.

“A town favorite...”
Reviewed January 14, 2012

See the same faces and maybe some new ones at this popular local restaurant. Big portions, reasonable prices and everything served hot. Like Burger King, "they'll make it your way." Do ignore the somewhat slippery tables and carpeting in need of vacuuming, especially after a busy time.
