“Great food, pleasant atmosphere, good service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Having visited the island about 10 times, we just tried Skillets for the first time. Wow!! We had a great experience. We ordered the french toast, stuffed french toast and the belgian waffle with eggs and meat. All were excellent. We just had water to drink and the bill without tip was about $22. The two who ordered the french toast each brought back one of the three huge slices with them and they heated up beautifully the next morning. Our waitress was very pleasant as was the decor. Light and airy with a combo of boths and tables. We observed that they do have an outdoor seating area as well. Located within the Coligny Shopping area and very close to the beach! Will definintely visit again! I loved the music playing over the sound system!

“Eh, I would google other places...”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 28, 2013

Very friendly and quick service, but unfortunately that's the best there is at Skillets. The food, especially the potatoes, were soggy and the spicy bloody mary was weak. There are other breakfast places within Hilton Head that will offer better breakfasts.

“Good food and good service for any night of the week”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013

We visited "Skillets Cafe and Grill" twice this week. Wait staff is always pleasant and working toward making your experience a positive one. Good mix of ideas on the menu for a family restaurant or a pub. As a group, we tried at least 10 different entrees over 2 nights. All were satisfied with their food. French fries were cold and not completely cooked. Scallop, shrimp, ribs, prime rib, and seafood platters were all very good! Portion size was generous, but not oversized as many average restaurants do. Price was very reasonable. My suggestion would be to stick to the " Skillet old time specialties" they were very tasty, well priced and delivered quickly!

“Bland and overcooked”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 26, 2013

We tried this restaurant for lunch. It was a beautiful day and we sat outside. The restaurant is quite large and seems to cater to the breakfast/lunch crowd. I had a seafood stir fry which was quite disappointing. The vegetables were overcooked and the dish didn't have much flavour. The fish platter had a heavy fried coating which once again made it difficult to enjoy the taste of the seafood. The club sandwich seemed to be a better choice. It was tasty and came with home made chips.

If going to this restaurant, I would stick to the sandwiches or the breakfast plates.

“Family Traditiion”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 19, 2013

Every visit to HHI means at least one visit to Skillets for breakfast. They have a nice selection of breakfast items which is the main reason we keep coming back for more. Some of our favorites are the bananas foster, cream chipped beef, the kitchen sink and the healthy omelets. Honestly anything off the menu has always been really good. There are cheaper places to have breakfast on the island, but you really can't go wrong with Skillets. Nice atmosphere and a friendly accomidating staff.
