    Ultimate Grilled Cheese w fried chicken thigh AND bacon jam... Delicious but a LOT for one person. Prob healthiest for longevity to share with someone. But so, so good.

    Came for the chicken and waffles, indulged in the serious toast. Holy crap was that meal amazing. Service was great. Sit at the bar, start a conversation, become a regular. This place is the greatest.

    Two words: bacon jam. That's the condiment served on the burger at food truck and now brick-and-mortar Diner. Allecia Vermillion of Seattle Met magazine says it has "become a local classic."

    Comfort food at its best and breakfast food served all day...aside from clogging your arteries there isn't a bad thing about skillet. The bacon fat fried waffle desert is unreal

    Love the fact that there's breakfast all day! The Daily Specials are awesome, so make sure to give them a good look over. They know how to do Spaghetti and Meatballs right. Simple, but so tasty.

    They got a large brunch menu that makes it difficult for you to decide on one thing only. Go with a group and try different things off the menu. They also have these sliding doors to open up the patio

    Be prepared for a line, but the food is worth the wait. I had the pork belly and waffle... Like a more sophisticated version of chicken and waffles! ;) mmm

    Open daily for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. The Skillet Burger and the Fried Chicken Sammy are classics, and the Ebelskivers are specific to this location.

    Love this little diner! The Poutine is he best I've had and will feed four as an app. Great fried chicken and corn meal waffles. Scrambles here are always delicious. Fabulous Bloody Mary's.

    Cornmeal crusted fish & cheesy grits with kale and chipotle mayo. The fish was outstanding and had a great crunch, but the grits needed some love

    You need to try the mac and cheese (definitely add the bacon jam), the grilled cheese (with the bacon jam), and the fried chicken sandwich.

    The grilled cheese with bacon jam is so unique and delicious! The special fries are a treat. Friendly atmosphere and cozy decor.

    Belgian Waffle with Pork Belly, OverEasy Egg and Fried Chicken, with just a touch of maple syrup, is an absolutely glorious meal. Best sweet and savory combo ever.

    I've never had a tastier salmon sandwich! Also, if you sometimes crave the amazing Fried Chicken Sandwich at Bake Sale Betty's in Oakland I dare say Skillet Diner's is actually better!

    Wow. The biscuit and gravy was incredible. Fluffy yet crispy, great taste, nothing overdone. Music was good too!
  • Leah C.
    Leah Candelaria-TylerFebruary 17, 2013
    Meh. Grits and poached eggs were too vinegary. And Biscuit Bitch has way better gravy...and biscuits...and grits. Coffee is fantastic. So is the service. Kale salad looks amazing!

    Get mike's scramble- it changes daily, but it's served w/balsamic dressed fresh salad, and the scramble is served on brioche toast. Thumbs up!

    The Chub is one of the best breakfast sandwiches I've had. Great Bloody Mary's too. The deconstructed hash is also a winner.

    Try the Munster Mac n cheese! It's delish! Fried chicken is good but batter is on the sweeter side. Pan seared salmon is recommended as well!

    Simply speaking, just make sure to eat everything on the menu before you die. Especially the chicken Sammy, lamby joes, and chicken & waffles.

    Chicken & Waffles. Biscuits & Gravy with a side of over easy eggs. Fruit crisp baked in a cast iron skillet & a la mode = worth every penny and calorie.

    If you're with a baby and he can't wait for the food to come, feed him spoonfuls of half-and-half. Have one yourself!

    Get the fried chicken dinner but sub the potatoes for another side. The Mac and Cheese is also pretty ridiculous.

    Bummer to report, dinner was a bust. Mac n' cheese, chicken n' waffle and fried chick sammy all left much to be desired. Even service was regrettably lackluster. Stick w/ breakfast.
