It was my first visit to Skillet! Will be back very soon! The food was delicious. Marcos was my server and Simone was the hostess! Both were spectacular at making sure I truly enjoyed my meal.

Our server was really nice (I didn’t catch their name but they were wearing bright pink sneakers at 5pm on 05/10) and very patient with us. The food was really tasty! Would dine here again!

Our server was so patient and accommodating! We loved everything except the grilled cheese was a little too kid-friendly for an adult. Child have used some tastier bread and greens or spicy sauce.

Great! Only issue was dealing with pandemic regulations, but staff made it very comfortable and pleasant! Always a winner.

I made reservations for breakfast based on that recommendation on their website. We arrived at our reservation time and were immediately seated. Our server was very friendly & provided quick service. We ordered our drinks (coffee & milk) and then ordered our breakfast - Pancakes (which came with four thick pancakes with strawberries on top) + Chicken & Waffles with a side of potatoes.
I absolutely loved the chicken - it was delicious. The waffle was good too but I was so focused on eating my chicken. I didn't even get to the potatoes so I took those to-go with the rest of my waffle. My husband could not finish his pancakes as they were very big and good he said. Great portion sizes and I'd definitely recommend.

Hubby loved the chicken and waffles. Wished that oat or soy milk was available for coffee.
My Your Way breakfast was great. Gourmet bacon!
Coming back to try the Cobb Salad.

One of the best chicken and waffles we’ve ever had. Speed of service was very fast. Our server was very friendly. Manager on duty was present and checked in during guests’ meals. I didn’t love the bacon jam Bloody Mary but that was just my personal taste. It was still very good. Would definitely recommend and come back here again.

Brunch was out of this world good. Brunch drinks were amazing, plentiful, and they even have a brunch flight if you can’t decide. We’ve been thinking about it ever since, highly recommend skillet!

Same great food, with a slightly reduced menu.
Good options for dining safely in pandemic times, with outdoor tents with pretty good separation between tables.
I've missed eating at Skillet so much!

Ate there twice in two trips to Seattle. Food was excellent the first time. Price is relatively inexpensive for Seattle.

Second trip food was still good just not as hot as the first trip.

This was our first (since COVID) restaurant in-house dining experience! Everything was clean and customers were kept away from each other--as per COVID guidelines. Service was great and so was the food.

Folks at Skillet are doing a great job in these COVID days. We had the option of inside or outside seating, and the inside seating was well-separated. The food and drinks were just as good as I remembered from prior visits.

My boyfriend lost his mask while walking from the truck to the entrance. I was already seated at our table when he arrived. He asked the hostess who answered the door (doorbell required- great idea!) for a mask and she didn't have one but allowed him to use an extra shirt he had on as a covering to get him to the table I was at only 10 feet inside the door. After settling in and preparing to order, another worker came over and kicked us out for him not having a mask when he arrived. I do appreciate their safety policy, but the lack of continuity made for a poor experience and I would highly recommend they get on the same page, especially since they had the ability to deny his entry at the door.

Skillet is the best! The 3 outside tents are perfect and safe for parties of 2 or 4. They have a smaller menu than before due to covid, but still lots of great dishes. (No biscuits and gravy right now - waaaaah :'( cry.) Their breakfast/brunch/lunch cocktail menu is awesome! Lots of original and fun cocktails.

I love Skillet! Even though I am fully vaccinated and my dining companion was as well, we chose to dine outside. The tent was fine but a little closed in especially since the sun came out. But that’s not the fault of Skillet. They have made it safe and enjoyable. Food is delicious. Service is fabulous. I will continue to dine there, hopefully inside, soon!

Outdoor tables could use actual space heaters instead of “personal” heater fans. They did not work well!

We had the Little Rob and Fried chicken with waffles. Both dishes were great (especially the griddle cakes and waffles). Food came promptly and was served warm. We took the outdoor seating - it was separate tables in individual tents (not clear/transparent, so you cannot see anything outside). There was also a portable heater on the table. As such, not much vibes, but you at least stay warm and dry.
