Well planned menu. We had breakfast and all dishes were fresh and delicious. "Mike's"breakfast 3 eggs and fried chicken thigh on brioche toast with arugula a must order. Overall a wonderful find in a neighborhood setting. Covid cautious serving too.

Wow. This place was a gem to find! The food and service was top notch. The Chub sandwich with the added fried chicken was to die for ( I can’t image anyone orders it plain without the fried chicken) and the flavors go together seamlessly. Not typically a huge Kale fan but the Kale Caesar salad I ordered on the side was also amazing. Every order the server passed by us for another table also looked delicious and could have been featured on a cooking show contest with impeccable presentation. Will return again and 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.

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!

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.

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.
