$31 to $50
Contemporary American

The award-winning Skillet Diner opened in the Capitol Hill neighborhood of Seattle in 2011. We’re a neighborhood joint doing our best to make the place feel relaxed, service attentive and easy; the food approachable yet focused. We use fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. The style of food is similar to what we’re known for on the airstream …the difference? we have so much more room! Items range from our fennel-crusted fried chicken and waffle, to our burger with bacon jam, arugula, bleu cheese on a Macrina sodo bun with beautiful hand cut fries, to our legendary kale Caesar salad.

Seating policy: We require your whole party be present to be sat. We will hold your table for up to 10 minutes.

Didn’t mind as I was waiting for someone else in my party. Server was very friendly and attentive. Had to wait a while to get our food. But the Little Rob with a sub of fried chicken for the egg was great! Salad had right amount of dressing which was light and went well with the sandwich.

The corn waffles were too - but the star of the show was the fried chicken with fennel in the crust. It was crunchy and delicious, with the fennel being subtle - just right. The portion of chicken was generous - and the leftovers were still crunchy at dinner time - the fried chicken truly the best in its class. I added bacon and avocado and the bacon was excellent - and the avocado, again, a generous amount. The service was excellent too - although it was quite busy the waitperson came by many times to check on things. I should also mention that I am an elderly female dining solo, and even so I felt that I got as much attention as the larger (and much younger) groups. All in all this was a A+ experience.

We had a small problem with one of the dishes that was brought out. Thankfully it was nothing that couldn’t be fixed and the bill reflected the correction so thank you for that. I really enjoyed my Chaichata and had a couple of The Sour drinks. I’ll be going back for the drinks and amazing food!

Our server was prompt, helpful and very attentive to us having a good a good evening. We order the fish tacos, but they arrive over-cooked, a bit tough and dry. They are typically excellent. The rest of the meal was very good.

I've never had chicken and waffles before and have always wanted to try them. Now I'm spoiled. The chicken was so tender it fell apart, and just the right spice. Waffle was crisp and light and held up to the perfect over easy egg yolk and just the right sweet syrup. Our waitress and servers were great! So fun and helpful. Only downside was freezing cold floors and the coffee was tepid, not hot enough.

Food and service were amazing. Bring a jacket or blanket if you go for brunch. I’m sure it’s warmer in the afternoons/evenings.

Super tasty chicken for the chicken & waffles, so easy to eat, and keep eating. A little cool @ table by the windows (9-11AM, 40's outside), we kept our coats on, but that's a small price to pay for delicious food. Definitely recommend.

The temperature was the same inside as outside. The staff could not make any adjustments so we had to eat as fast as possible as the food was getting cold fast.

The food is amazing, the service is very friendly, and it being by reservation only makes the dates we go on there feel more special. As well as it creating an illusion it’s much less crowded for how popular they are. No overstuffed lobby to wait shoulder to shoulder with people in, just a welcoming hello and being brought to the table within 5 minutes, usually less. They truly seem to care about their guests as well as their employees, especially in such an unprecedented time period. 10/10, go here.

But when I got there I saw it was a terrible place. I prefer go to a Mcdonald's to eat than eat in a place like this. The person in the front desk doesn't wear a decent dress. They said in the app they prefer casual dress , but she dressed like a trash. They have some short tables only short people or kids can sit on. When she asked me for my vacation card I told her I don't bring it because in the website they said no fully vaccinated has to wear a mask, so I have my mask on. She said unfortunately they can serve me outside, their outside tables are wet and dirty. I am asking why someone leave your beautiful house very clean and has a lot of space in to eat, then go waste your money in a place like this? They are not organized and don't respected what they said. I prefer go to get a McDonald's happy meal than go to a place like this again. I visited some Brazilian and Italian restaurants in bellevue before, I was very satisfied, but this is not a restaurant to visit if you want to wear your beautiful dress or waste your time to do your makeup.

Ok the chicken and waffle plate is GREAT! However, just that one plate isn’t enough to carry the whole place. I’m disappointed the only healthy option is a side salad and it’s not something that I want at 9am. You get a choices, with most dishes, of fries, tots, or salad… some dishes like the burritos have fries in the burrito (WHY?!). The last thing I want is another potato side on top of that. I’d love a fruit option, especially for kids! I like the small menu, but if you are health, in the slightest bit, this menu is not for you. The service is friendly and fast. If you want your app (the donuts are really good) then order it first and do not order you breakfast at the same time. Twice we tried saying bring the app first, and they did, but only maybe 3min before all the other plates came out. There’s a great restaurant here… it’s just hidden behind bad, weird, and lacking menu options.

We were pleasantly surprised by this little diner. The food was soooooo good! The staff were friendly and attentive. They kept the temp a little too cold for the time of year though. Definitely bring a sweater or wear your coat. Overall we loved it!

Our waiter was the best. Our drink of choice wasn’t the best (the spicy Bloody Mary) but overall everything was really good. We were there for the game 49ers vs Seahawks and my husband’s birthday. Would definitely visit again if we were to go back to Seattle.
