Foursquare Tips

  • Short ribs on grilled polenta with goat cheese...epic.
  • Is it a utensil holder? Is it a water glass? Or is it just a mason jar? Who knows?
  • Love the biscuits and gravy
  • Southern food, burgers, chicken and waffles, fries, bacon jam, beer
  • Get the French toast. Wow. So yummy and huge
  • Must try item: southern chicken on waffles!
  • Try the pork belly with the waffle and some of their delicious ginger beer!
  • Omg. The ultimate, ultimate grilled cheese has jalapeo Mac n cheese and pulled pork within this crazy Sammie.
  • If you're looking for great diner ambience with wonderful, hearty, comfort food that's been raised up a couple of notches, come to the Skillet Diner in Ballard. Full bar, too! Check out these sprouts:
  • Swedish meatballs are good, and only available at the Ballard location!
  • Huge counter, a 10-top for group seating, handy spot before or after a movie at the Majestic Bay or a trip to the Ballard library!
  • How hungry are you? How hungover are you? If the answer to either or both is either "very" or some sort of animalistic noise, you should order the Chicken Fried Steak with eggs and breakfast potatoes.
  • Food was really good, particularly the scramble and the eggs your way, but they were busy dealing with a full window so the service was pretty slow.
  • Skillet has become a local favorite in Seattle. Think: creative twists on classic diner favorites like the Ultimate Grilled Cheese, served with bacon jam and a fried chicken thigh.
  • Everything is good and fresh. Service is top notch.
  • Caesar Salad dressing is good but a little overwhelming and salty. Ask for less or on the side. Rockfish is tasty on top.
  • Milkshake and brunch!
  • This was my second visit. I wasn't impressed the first time and I'm terribly disappointed this time. I had the BBQ Bahn Mi, it was a flavorless open face trainwreck. Avoid Skillet, there is better.
  • The Chub is my favorite! I recently tried the griddle cakes and they were delicious.
  • Had the 'Grown up Breakfast' and the 'Chub' was fantastic and the service was quick and friendly. Came with 3 of my friends and we sat at the bar
