I had a great burger with a very unusual slaw. My server was fantastic. I would recommend this place to anyone in the area.

This was my second visit to this popular Seattle destination, and I was just as pleased as my first first over 3 years ago.Located up the hill from bustling downtown Seattle, this restaurant combines very eclectic and tasty dishes severed with simple but vibrant flavors. If a comfort meal is what you seek, this the place to find it. The... More

Ended up here on the recommendation of a lovely lady whose company I enjoyed on the plane over here from Amsterdam. And as it happens is a short walk from my son's apartment. We went for an early supper and I have to say the food was just delicious- in particular the steak salad with blue cheese dressing. Great cocktails... More

skillet is located in one of the most eclectically colorful areas in Seattle and as the Capitol Hill neighborhood, so the restaurant. Fashioned to look like an old-style diner, it is anything but that. The menu is modern and earthy, with unusual combinations that work well together. Frazier would have eaten there for sure- they have tossed salad and scrambled... More

This restaurant has had a lot of good reviews but our experience was less than. The coffee was old, cold and bitter. We weren't asked if we wanted milk or cream for it which may have made it more palatable but since it was already cold, probably not. The steak was over cooked, my husband broke out in hives from...

The long wait was sure worth it! Their food was inventive, fresh and delicious! Would go again next visit. The Skillet is a upscale diner, with healthy creative options, all quickly prepared and served by a happy staff. The egg scramble was yummy and the kale salad was out of this world!

Basically the best mix of all things breakfast and then some. You hear some of the items on menu like fried chicken and kale scramble and you think "that's real?" It is and it's amazing. Although I always default to the poutine and the grilled cheese is excellent as well. Go early (8:30am) and you won't have to wait in... More

My wife and I ate at this restaurant on our last day during a long weekend in Seattle. I was somewhat tired being the Best man at my brothers wedding. I ate the biscuits in gravy and the food warmed my soul. The food was rich and had a lot of flavour. The portion was generous but overwhelming. The prices... More
