The Silver Skillet was featured in a “Triple D” episode on the Food Network as well as a special on Atlanta restaurants on the travel channel. We visited just before lunch on our way to the High Museum of Art which is only an easy 20 minute walk away. The servers were friendly. Note that the lunch menu is only... More

When planning our trip to Atlanta we made it a point to come and have a meal at Silver Skillet. Definitely did not disappoint! We had breakfast here. I had the country ham with the red eye gravy. Very tasty very tender. The grits were the best I've had anywhere. Fabulous food , great service a winning combination for us!... More

The Silver Skillet is an Atlanta institution, well known for their breakfast and famous as a location for any number of film and video shoots. It oozes character with its homey atmosphere and waitresses. While I think of the Silver Skillet as a breakfast joint, they also serve a pretty mean lunch. I recently ordered the Thanksgiving dinner with turkey... More

Went on a Sunday morning. Had to wait in line but it was well worth it. Large portions, fast service and a historic venue. Has been there since the 1950's. We'd highly recommend this diner.

Being a southern girl thought I'd see how close to true southern food it really was. As I've learned not all places that say southern cooking really are. And that's a shame. I can say this is the real deal. They have the Best biscuits I've ever eaten. Wanted to try the country ham with red eye gravy. I've read... More

My family ate here during while visiting Atlanta for the SEC Football Championship. The food and service was amazing. The restaurant is an old style diner. Great choice, highly recommend!

We ate here after a week of crappy conference breakfast. This place is a must. Food was good and service was even better.

The Silver Skillet is a traditional diner. It still has the vibe of the 1950s. You can get anything for breakfast and they also have chicken salad and other diner favorites. Its not large inside so be prepared to wait on the weekend.

I really wanted to love this place, but the service ruined the experience. It was a fairly busy Saturday morning. Because it’s such a hole in the wall place, the only place to wait was through the aisles of booths. The servers kept barking at all of us waiting in line. I work in a restaurant, so I understand how... More

This diner was very close to our hotel and the food was pretty good especially the biscuits! The staff gave that southern hospitality that you would expect which was very welcoming. The only thing is the prices were a little high for a diner.
