Based on my visit on Sept 5, 2012 I WOULD NEVER GO BACK TO THIS RESTAURANT AGAIN & HATE TO THINK THIS PLACE IS REPRESENTATIVE OF ATLANTA'S HOSPITALITY OR SOUTHERN COOKING to anyone visiting our city!!!!!\r
Over priced, terrible food & even

I visited this place a couple of times and one of the reasons why I keep coming back is the quality of their food.. Everything tasted really good.

Great hidden Atlanta breakfast spot. Right in the heart of midtown, it's as Southern as you can get. Their biscuits and gravy are unbelievable. Service is friendly, but does get really packed during the weekend. Must eat at if visiting Atlanta.

Pros: Real southern breakfast menu

Cons: Come early, because it's long waits on the weekends

I was in on Saturday, Jan 23, 2010 and sat at the counter. I thought I would have a lovely greasy spoon breakfast experience with my boyfriend at one of my fav breakfast places. I was in for a surprise.

It wasn't very busy in the restaurant and my waitress--well to say the least--she appeared to be high as a kite. I have never seen her there before. She looked hungover or doped up on drugs because the reactions she had towards me and my boyfriend as we ordered breakfast were unusual to say the least. She was jittery and hyperactive, as well as pretty loud. Her eyes said it all. She was all over the place and seemed very overwhelmed. The place was not as busy as it usually is on a Saturday morning when I've gone in the past, so I'm not sure why she was so dazed and confused. She was very unattentive and another waitress actually kept our coffee cups filled.

Other than the doped up waitress that served us, everything else was okay. The food was good. I got the super skillet omelet which is always delicious and my boyfriend got a waffle and link sausage.

Whoever this new chick is that appears to be strung out needs to go. Needless to say, when we come back for another breakfast, if we sit in her section (if she's actually still working there), we will be getting up and moving to another table.

I ordered the egg platter which came with bacon & grits & I added hotcakes.

The bacon was quite greasy. I tried my husband's sausage which we both agreed was not well seasoned and our eggs were dry.

The grits & coffee were good.

Our final assessment was that our waitress, which was an elderly woman, was a bit pushy and not as attentive to our table. We sat for quite a while waiting for her to ask if we needed out drinks refilled. When I asked to have my syrup heated, she quickly told me, WE DON'T DO THAT" and just walked off.

If a microwave was not accessible, I would have settled for a glass of hot water where I could have placed my syrup packet in the glass just to heat it up a bit. But she didn't try to help with a simple solution to a request.

When she sat our plates down, she came so close to my face, she almost hit me with the plate. She didn't apologize. Maybe she was just zoned out and had no clue. But I sure did.

We will not return but thanks for the experience. We are still searching for great breakfast restaurants in Atlanta. Our quest will continue on.

Pros: Distance was not too far

Cons: Food is greasy & not well seasoned

Great Southern food - breakfast and brunch, in a great 50s style decor restaurant. Egg breakfasts, grits, red eye gravy, biscuits and signature pork chops! Its a really fun place to meet up - and its really close to everything - Georgia Tech, Atlantic Station, Midtown.. - so its really really popular!!

The old diner has so much history. Whether you are waiting on a table or standing in line to pay, you can see and read all kinds of signed autographs from celebrities who have visited, quirky signs, and sayings. This is the epitome of a true southern breakfast. Prices are kind of high but worth it and the sweet ladies working there make your morning.

Being known as 'king of breakfast' among my friends, they expect me to point them in the right direction.

Let me start by saying The Silver Skillet is ground zero!
This has got to be the most real food I've had in some time. Nothing faddy, nothing put on--no salsa, bean sprouts or tofu here. This is where one goes to get back in touch with their inner self. The good old days when men were men and women were women--The food is outstanding, service fast and friendly and the 50s atmosphere is unique to this 50s diner.
You couldn't reproduce this anywhere else than at The Silver Skillet.
Yet again, I've found the perfect breakfast spot. Hail to the King!!

recently saw this place on my favorite tv show-"Diners, Drive-ins and Dives" on the food network--it showed off this place so much that I had to come see for myself. This is a one of kind find--a 50s diner that actually began in the 50s. Since 1956!! in Atlanta!! rare indeed in these days of chain restaurants. The owners were both working when I stopped in Saturday to a line out the door. This is a popular spot!! Now I can see why. The food is just like the show said--Fantastic--the service, atmosphere-just the best. I'm glad no one has made this a chain- it just wouldn't be the same. The owner, Teresa was ready with a smile and a Good Morning!! Not easy to find these days. I just can't say enough other than I WILL BE BACK!!!

I had heard about this place--you know-old 50s diner, great food, etc.. but had to see to believe---I'm a BELIEVER! This place is great--a true throwback to the 50s--I think even the waitresses were around then--great food--biscuits are the best ever. I will be back and am a fan for life.

saw it on Diners, drive-ins and dives last week--looked like someplace I needed to go.
What a trip! a true 50s diner with all the right stuff-good atmosphere, friendly service and of course, good food. After hearing that this place has been here since 1956 I can see why.

Fantastic place--I HIGHLY recommend you try it!

AFTER BEING TOLD THAT THIS PLACE HAD THE BEST BISCUITS IN TOWN--I HAD TO CHECK IT OUT.
THE INFORMATION WAS ABSOLUTELY TRUE! THESE ARE THE BEST BISCUITS I HAVE EVER TASTED. SERVICE WAS FROM THE OLD SCHOOL, FOOD WAS TOP NOTCH.
I READ ALL THE INFORMATION ABOUT THIS PLACE AND CAN UNDERSTAND WHY THEY ARE STILL IN BUSINESS AFTER 52 YEARS.
CAN'T WAIT TO SEE THE DINERS, DRIVE-INS AND DIVES SHOW IN THE FALL--THEY WILL BE FEATURED

Stopped in last week for a bite of breakfast. Had heard about this place for a while. Easy to get to and worth the trip--from whereever. Great southern breakfast--stick to your ribs food--not tofu or beansprouts. It's obvious why this has been here so long--good food and good service. I'll be back.

Out of state friends were in for the holidays-wanted a true southern breakfast-where else? The Skillet!
In a world of franchises and hybrid chain restaurants, this place stands alone. Been in the same spot serving their great food and ambience since 1956. The owners know how NOT to chage things when they work--and man do they work. You've got to try this Atlanta landmark!! Highly recommend.

friends in from out of town wanted a taste of the south for breakfast---what better place than the skillet. Read all the great reviews-a couple of bad experiences tossed in but that's expected-everyone has an off day--this place is GREAT! In business for 51 years! Biscuits are outstanding-Country Ham is as they say-melt in your mouth. Friends had corn beef hash-never had it grilled before-loved it-eggs are actually cooked in a skillet not on a flat top grill as most places(hence the name of the place I guess). Service is the old fashioned kind-older southern waitresses with service as their motto. I WILL BE BACK!!

First of all, I love breakfast. I go out of my way to find a good traditional, hopefully southern type breakfast.
I, like the reviewer before me have also heard good reviews of the Silver Skillet. I tried it. I absolutely LOVED IT!! The Country Ham melts in your mouth, not the shoe leather most places sell you-- the biscuits are by far the best I've had, and the atmosphere is one of a kind--a true 50s diner. The prior reviewer must live in a bubble-this place is great--I'll highly recommend and send all my friends here!!

My husband and I went to breakfast on Sunday at the Silver Skillet. First, let me say the place was filthy from front to back and top to bottom. I don't know why we didn't leave immediately. Having read some good reviews of the place, we were in denial. So soon comes a very well-meaning waitress and then the drinks: the coffee was weak as water and the fruit juice was almost as warm as the coffee. Let me just say "gross old plastic cups": we're not talking retro. My husband had the Skillet Country Ham breakfast, with scrambled eggs, gravy, and biscuits and red eye gravy. I had the grilled Corned Beef Hash breakfast, with eggs over easy, grits, and biscuits. The country ham was oddly charred, and I am not convinced that there was meat (at last not beef) in the "corned beef hash," which was WAY too salty and also burnt. The red eye gravy tasted like the coffee with soy sauce in it and the other "gravy" was extra floury. The biscuits and the eggs were o.k, even better than average, but, you know, what's it worth to you? I love a down-home country breakfast as much as anyone (salt and all), but any Waffle House will do over this place. Better yet, just stay at home and make your own breakfast. Going to the Silver Skillet might have been ok once, but that time was maybe about twenty years ago, the last time someone really cleaned the place.

I live in Woodstock--about a 45 minute ride to midtown. Have heard about this place-never been. Finally, on the way to a friend's place, I stopped in. It's true what I have heard. This really is the best breakfast in town. A true Southern experience. I would highly recommend this to one and all. Try their biscuits!!

My friends call me Mr. Neverwrong--always choosing the right movies,CDs,games and now restaurants.
It was my turn to choose where our 'group of guys' should eat--I chose the breakfast meal after a late night out. I had recently heard about this place on the news as having a decline in business due to a misunderstanding with another similarly named place closing. Well, don't worry, WE know you're still around-as the sign out front says-"For Over 50 Years" and rightly so--this place is it for breakfast--again, Mr. Neverwrong strikes again. We all had different meals, from Country Ham (melt in your mouth) to Corn Beef Hash (grilled to perfection) and all in between.--Biscuits--say no more--Righteous! Obvious as to why they're still here--they are doing it right--just like me choosing The SIlver Skillet-doing it right. We loved it and will tell all our friends that the Silver Skillet is still here and doing well.

In town over the weekend from Va. Asked where the best breakfast in Atlanta was, my concierge told me "The Silver Skillet" So, I went. Man, oh man, was he right. Unbelievable. The place has been here since 1956, waitresses were true old south, food was just what I would have expected from a one of a kind, true 50s diner. The eggs were cooked to perfection, the link sausage was big and fat, split and grilled--not the little links you would find at Ihop--hashbrowns and white pepper gravy over the absolutely best biscuits I ever put in my mouth. Why don't they franchise? As the owner said--it just wouldn't be the same place--definitely right--An Atlantan Icon.--All my friends will know to stop here when in Atlanta. I will be back!!

lived in atlanta all my life--have heard about the skillet forever. Watching the TV news one night, saw that they are still open for over 50 years. Finallly made it in. WOW!!!! I am a believer---it is the BEST BREAKFAST IN ATLANTA. The atmosphere is true 1950s, the waitresses are perfect for this place--Hey Hon! The food is incredible. You have got to try their country ham--melt in your mouth. They also have the best biscuits, period. I'll be telling all of my friends--this is a 'don't miss' place!

Been here once before--remembered that it was great-had some riders with me in the area and decided to stop by and see if they were as good as I remembered. Not only were they still great-- my buddies thought it was the Best Breakfast in Atlanta as the sign out front states.. We'll be back.

Please do not get the Silver Skillet confused with the recently closed Silver Grill on Monroe Dr. The Silver Grill was a legend, as is still the Silver Skillet. Located on 14th. St, near I-75, it is well known to local business people, blue collar, and nearby Tech students. It's just home-style at it's best--meat & two or three. Especially good is the meatloaf, mac n' cheese, and collard greens. But the wonderful corn muffins, bring it all together. The Country Breakfast, with Country Ham 'N Biscuits is mighty tasty also. Crusty long-time waitresses who call you "Hon"! You gotta love it!

I work close to 14th Street, so I had been meaning to try both Silver Skillet and Bobby & June's Country Kitchen which are a couple of blocks apart. I tried them both within one week, and Silver Skillet wins out in my opinion. I had the same thing at both restaurants - chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes with gravy, and fried okra. Both places did a decent job and were really fast in getting the food out. The steak at Silver Skillet was less chewy, the gravy was better, and so was the potatoes. The fried okra was equal at both places - not as good as my Moms at either. Both places had great sweet tea. In terms of service, the waitress was much friendlier at Silver Skillet (not that the service at Bobby & June's was bad, just not as friendly).

The price was comparable at both places and both have the southern charm and atmosphere that makes them so welcoming. Try both out. My favorite is Silver Skillet though.

After living in the South (Atlanta) for the last 8 years, I finally went to the Silver Skillet. Wow I wish I did not. There of us went for lunch on 3/9/05, I got the Chicken Fried Steak, Corn and Mashed Potatoes. There was no white gravy, it came with brown gravy. corn was canned and boing to the point that I barely had to chew it. I the Potatoes were homemade, but very lumpy, and bland. A friend had the roast beef, it looked good. Best part of lunch, was the sweet tea.

In short, the 'best breakfast in Atlanta' was not at all. I paid $10 for two pieces of french toast and a sausage. Thats insane. Also my friend wanted dinner on a Sunday but they didn't offer it.

Just tried this Atlanta landmark---wow! one of a kind! It's true what they say- Best breakfast in town! you've got to try their country ham and red eye gravy- so tender it cuts with a fork-biscuits and gravy are great! The service is done the old fashioned way-personable and fast.I will be back!

Pros: Service, Breakfast, Cool T-Shirts

After reading all the rave reviews, I was terribly disappointed in the Skillet. The portions were small and the grits were quick if not instant. There just doesn't seem to be a place to get a good breakfast in midtown since IHOP closed.

Pros: friendly service, old-fashioned diner

Cons: food

this is Atlanta- and what I will miss when/if I ever have to leave. Greasy food- yet clean restaurant and well prepared meals, and good service. Expect to wait at prime times- yet still worth the wait.

Pros: food, service, ambiance

Cons: too small, parking sometimes..

The food is fabulous. The service even better. It is home cooking at it's best. It is not like the chain type places. Everything is fresh. It isn't the cheapest but the best never is.

I had breakfast there and it was pretty good. The service was very very slow but we were in no hurry. The portion sizes were good. Overall a good experience just don't expect to find 'diet' food.

Pros: GoodValue, ample parking, tasty food

Cons: Crowded

Another great "diner" experience. The breakfast and the service can't be beat. You never have to ask for more coffee, water, etc. The waitresses seem to be able to know when you need more. To those who have never tried it, when you're in the mood for a big ol' southern breakfast, this is the place to go.

Go back in time and enjoy Southern hospitality and the best fried chicken in town. No wonder so many movies are filmed here!

I think that the Silver Skillet is one of the best breakfast resturants I've known. Its sparkling aroma fills the air with such delight, it makes your mouth water for a breakfast in sight. Many people enjoy the good service, the quality value, and the delicious grub served straight to you.You don't have to waist your time looking around for another "good-looking" resturant to eat at. You see, it's not the outside, but the inside that really counts.
