I was very impressed with Skillet's outdoor dining set up with covid safety in mind. We had privacy from other guests while still having good ventilation. The food of course was also delicious and the service was great!

These guys have done a fantastic job at keeping their delicious menu available to in-person diners during our indoor dining restrictions... bravo! And I know it’s just a side dish, but their breakfast potatoes today were perfection... expertly cooked and seasoned. It’s a hard thing to achieve. Outstanding!

It was great! It’s very hard to find ways to celebrate a birthday in these times. Skillet was a good option. Will bring a blanket next time though.

This is my second time eating in at Skillet since COVID. My first time was not as positive as the host and servers did not tell me that there is a time limit of 1 hour, they simply seated us and waited until we had been there about an hour to tell us we had to leave.

This time staff was much friendlier and no one rushed us out. We were seated quickly, our food lagged and we were served behind a table that came after us but other than that it was fine.

Skillet is a decent option but not anything groundbreaking. Just always make a reservation as they are typically very busy.

The troll of a host had a terrible attitude and treated us borderline discriminatory. They lacked the empathy and tone to actually ‘host’ anyone. Must feel powerful being the Queen of Hosts. This was enough to make me never want to return or ever recommend anyone going there. If you don’t like your work you should make a choice to find another. And if you want a seamless dining experience, don’t go to Skillet in Cap Hill.

Meals at Skillet always feel decadent at a reasonable price. Everything is very rich and flavorful with generous portions. Service was a bit slow but food was well worth the wait. Highly recommend the fried chicken and waffles.

We had the fried chicken sandwich with a salad and both were excellent. We planned to eat outside to be safer, but it was so cold! So we ate inside and felt very comfortable and safe.

The tables were far apart with plastic screens and the waitstaff stayed far away. I highly recommend the Skillet for inside dining this winter!

Had reservations and were the only couple sat outside with no heater around our table. Asked if we could move sine it was 52 degrees outside or wait for another table. We were told ‘no’ there would not be a table available for another 2 hours. We ordered take out instead and while we were waiting for our food 4 other groups were sat all under outdoor heaters. Ridiculous!!

Have been here twice in two weeks. Excellent on social distancing and keeping customers and staff safe during this pandemic. Didn’t realize we needed a reservation, but we got there at 11:28 am and they had an opening at 11:30. They are detail oriented about safety: the reservation, the doorbell when you get there, QR code on the table for the menu. Clearly marked instructions about everything. We were totally comfortable eating here and we have only been to restaurants to eat in 2-3 times since March. Also have outdoor seating. The staff is outstanding: friendly, attentive and professional. The menu is limited but good choices for breakfast and lunch. Everything was very good (the raspberry jam that comes with toast is outstanding). This is our new “go to” place for breakfast and lunch when in Seattle. 5-6 minute drive from all the major medical facilities (Harborview, Swedish, etc.) which is why we were in the area. Highly recommend!

Have always enjoyed dining here in the past, but this last food experience was lackluster. Very little chicken in the breakfast burrito and nothing was seasoned.

The chicken that came with my chicken and waffle plate was off the charts delicious. I’m already thinking about when I will get it next. Staff did an awesome job of communicating, following, and encouraging covid-19 safety measures. Bravo Skillet

The food is great here and it's in a cute part of cap hill.. however, NOTE that they are not allowing you to say longer than an hour right now. We were kicked out and only told 10 min before we had to leave. I completely understand the need to limit so they can turn tables but we should have been warned before we sat down and they should allow for at least 1.5 hours or 2 hours. 1 hour isn't long enough. Open table needs to make this a bigger alert and not in the fine print.:)
