Small Restaurant, Big Flavor! My wife and I had lunch at Skillet, and we were very impressed. This intimate restaurant serving locally produced food has a nice vibe. There were families with babies, people in their sixties and young couples. The tables were close enough that we were able to talk to the couple at the next table, and they turned out to be regulars at Skillet. In spite of being packed, it was not too loud, and the music was mostly unobtrusive. I take apple cider for granted, but the cider served at Skilliet is the best I've ever had. Not too sweet, with a wonderful flavor ($3 for a tall glass). My "pot roast" shredded turkey was moist and yummy, and the gravy tasted homemade, as did the mashed potatoes. My wife's pulled pork was also fine, and her macaroni was spiced an unexpected kick of hot pepper. Great flavor, and not salty. Our entrees each cost around $13. The path to the one bathroom is through the kitchen, and I noticed that the kitchen is spotlessly clean. We'll be back! Michael Armstrong Bexley, Ohio

Interesting for a change of pace. Tried them because I had a coupon, and had never been there. They serve ice cream, burgers, pizzas, subs, salads, and baked pastas... feels like... Brooklyn (maybe?) inside. You have the option to sit at a diner counter or at a table, all the staff is behind the counter, so you seat yourself, get your own drinks, etc. The sausage-beef-blend burger is very flavorful, and comes on a pretzel bun, which is quite good. The regular burger is a little bland, but passable. I didn't try any other dishes, but saw some come out of the kitchen, and they looked pretty good. I like them for the variety of choices and the interesting atmosphere. Certainly not a fancy restaurant, but my first impression was a good one. Oh, and I don't have any, but, kids eat free on weekdays (sunday-thursday), so either go there or avoid there, with that in mind. :o)
I have not had much on the menu, but the romano crusted chicken is more than enough reason to go back. It's one of those things where I'd like to try other stuff on the menu, but it's just so good that I find myself ordering it every time. I'm only giving this 4 stars because I've been in larger parties where several people were disappointed with their food (one of these occasions was an Easter brunch so I know that's kind of a crazy day where things are bound to go wrong) so I dunno. In any case, I'll keep going back and keep ordering the romano crusted chicken until it lets me down. So far, so good! Also, I think it's worth noting that the staff has always been helpful anytime there was an issue, and they have always been nice in my experience. A little niceness goes a long way!
