The menu beams with breakfast favorites such as the seafood omelet with scallops, crab, and shrimp ($10.95) and decadent coligny blintzes stuffed with sweetened ricotta and crowned with whipped topping and fruit ($7.99). Sate midday cravings with starters such as beer-battered grouper fingers ($8.95) and fried green tomatoes ($8.95), followed by an open-faced lump crab cake patty melt on toasted rye ($10.59) or tender beef briskets topped with sliced pickles and slaw ($9.99).
Skillets Café is open only for breakfast and lunch in January and February; it resumes serving its full menu starting March 1.
When Skillets Café opened in 1994, its moniker reflected its sole mission: to serve up seafood-heavy breakfasts, made from scratch, in porcelain skillets. The name has stuck, but it no longer does justice to the wide array of breakfast, lunch, and dinner fare that now resides on Skillets’ menu. Servers still dish out seafood omelets and crepes, skillets of potatoes and poached eggs, and stuffed french toast, but they do so at all hours, or at least until the rooster crows at midnight. And at lunch and dinner, morning dishes are joined by sandwiches and hearty entrees such as shrimp and grits, grilled meatloaf, and filet mignon. Out on the patio, humans can dig into comforting meals while seated beside their pooches, which are welcome to chow down on items from the doggy menu.
