Quick service and great good. My friend and I wanted to try a new breakfast place and Silver Skillet was recommended. We went on a Sunday around 10:30 and it was just in time to beat the rush that came a few minutes after us.
We placed our order and it came out fairly quickly. I had the grilled chicken omelette w/hash browns and it was delicious.
Good southern cooking at cheap prices. The best thing on the menu is the chicken fried steak, but they have healthy options too. Don't come here to eat healthy. The Lemon Ice Boxed pie was listed as one of the best in the country, and that is true. It is AMAZING. The pancakes for breakfast are huge, so only order one to start.

We use to go when I was in Atlanta visiting airline friends, that was in the 60's, Saw it on Diners and Dives the other day..what great memories. Live out in Lake Tahoe now but get back there once in a while. Can't wait to get those pork chops and grits.

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.

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!!
