A word from Skillet Diner - Capitol Hill
The award-winning Skillet Diner opened in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle in 2011. We’re a neighborhood joint doing our best to make the place feel relaxed, service attentive and easy; the food approachable yet focused. We use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients and continually redefine the meaning of comfort. The style of food is similar to what we’re known for on the airstream …the difference? we have so much more room! Items range from our maple braised pork belly and waffle with a fried egg on top, to our burger with bacon jam, arugula, bleu/brie on brioche with beautiful hand cut fries, to our southern fried chicken and legendary kale Caesar salad. Our full bar hosts happy hour daily and offers hand-crafted artisan cocktails along with beer and wine on tap.

Bring a date, your kids, your out of town guests…and an appetite…we look forward to putting some tasty treats in your belly.

Diner Reviews
  • "Went on a recommendation that Skillet had the best Mac N Cheese on all of the West Coast - two people in our party had it and also raved. Also made great recommendations based on my gluten allergy. Solid choice!"

  • "A very clean attractive diner style restaurant. Kid friendly. Counters & lots of light. Good corner location. It goes downhill from there. I had a restaurant week menu, fried chicken sandwich. It was not good, in fact it was really bad. The chicken was dark meat and there was very little of it. The sandwich was mostly fried clumps of batter which a somewhat odd taste, not good. The fries were greasy. The milk shake was good. The diners next to me had breakfast and I noticed that they left half of their plate uneaten. I was relieved that I did not take guests to Skillet Diner with me, it would have been embarrassing."

  • "Went for the grits and pork belly. So delicious. Glad I was in the area and gave this place a shot. Now to find an excuse to be in the area again and come back."

  • "The fried chicken was crisp, succulent and very tasty. The brown sugar rubbed rock fish served on a bed of salad with pomegranate dressing was slightly dry, but the flavor was delicate. We shared a bowl of Poutine, which is the ultimate comfort food. For desert, the chocolate pie in a bowl (a kind of pudding) was a yummy way to end a great meal. The beverages were resonably priced, as we had the benefit of Happy Hour, but all the glasses used were various sizes of canning jars, which a member of our party did not appreciate. A request for a standard glass could unfortunately not be accomodated, but in the end a clear plastic cup was provided. The use of canning jars is an "affectation" and diners should be provided with a choice."

  • "The food was innovative and not your typical breakfast fare. Enjoyed the many interesting menu choices. Portions were ample and well-presented. Our waitperson was quite personable. Very crowded at 10:45 a.m. on a weekday. Reservations absolutely necessary. We weren't rushed at all, but the very crowded conditions were not conducive to our business meeting. If I go there again, it will be to enjoy the food, not to conduct business. It's not the place for that. My guest had suggested the location, so I went along with the idea."

  • "We had a very enjoyable dinner at Skillet, with a nice assortment of meats, pastas, and fish, and a few good local beers and wines. Worth a return visit."

  • "I was impressed by the design and concept of the place. I was underwhelmed by the food - I ordered a fried chicken sandwich. Portions on the small side for what you pay. Didn't try the drinks but they looked like upscale twists on standards."

  • "Group of 3 each ordered different main dish, and all very tasty! Like the skillet a lot (for the main dish and for the treat)! Some creative design in the store too!"

  • "Very delicious breakfast was had. Was surprised by the spice of the grits. If you like tobasco, you'll love the grits."

  • "This is the second time my wife & I have brought friends to Skillet for dinner. We especially enjoy the unique menu. The dishes are all terrific in quality & quantity. We have culinary careers and love traditional comfort food which Skillet has turned into imaginative fun. Our service was outstanding (we had the same waiter each visit - fortunately), attentive & patient. Love the drink ideas too - we tried the Bailey's milkshake & the Peppermint Patty. It was worth a night off my diet. A little too loud for me & the booths are uncomfortable but those are the only semi-negative parts. We'll be back, even though we live in Everett."

  • "The food is amazing!!! Great drink list, and cool staff. If it weren't so popular, I'd be there every night (kinda hard to get in without a reservation).."
