Think large portions of classic heavy breakfast food to fill you up on a cold day before a hike. No complaints.

The Island Skillet does a solid breakfast. Good strong coffee and a large menu selection for breakfast. We are there three times during our stay all for breakfast. They do lunch but you need to arrive by 1:30 because they close at 2:00.

Had a huge skillet breakfast - we took half home for a whole other meal. Locals with hearty appetites eat here. The service was outstanding! Highly recommend!

We had breakfast here and the chorizo skillet was delicious, the staff was very friendly and made sure we were taken care of. It is a very quaint place for a good price and delicious meal!

Island Skillet has the best breakfasts on the island. Fast and good service and great food. You can sit outside which is really nice.

We stopped in for a late lunch on Sunday. We got there at about 1:30 and they close at 2:00 so it wasn't very busy. I ended up having a breakfast scramble, which was tasty, though a little greasy. My wife loves Reuben sandwiches so that was her choice, which she came to regret. First, the top slice of bread... More

Plenty to love about this homey place. There's nothing fancy about the decor. It was Valentine's Weekend and the place was hopping with mainlanders like us, Breakfast was delicious, and the friendly food server provided helpful suggestions about the Island and places we'd want to see on our short visit.

We brought some friends out to Orcas Island to show them around. We all stopped into Island Skillet for breakfast. Never fails to please! I had the chorizo scramble, to die for! My wife had the mediterreanian skillet, simply fantastic. The coffee is roasted just for them and our friends took a bag of beans home with them. Cannot say... More

The omelet I had here may have been the best omelet I have ever tasted in my life. We sat outside and enjoyed watching people go about their Saturday business in the little town of Eastsound. Delicious food, served quickly.

Young, tall, dark haired male waiter was extremely rude not once but twice within first 3 minutes of walking in door. Walked out before he could say anything else to me and my mother. Completely unacceptable behavior. Asked to speak to a manager but did not have one on duty.
