Chow down with today's deal: for $7, you get $15 worth of American breakfast or lunch fare at Skillets Café on Hilton Head Island.
At Skillets Café, egg experts serve up traditional American breakfast dishes in charming porcelain skillets and craft crowd-pleasing lunches from an extensive menu of from-scratch café staples. Fire up the digestive apparatus for a full day with the Southern omelette—three whole eggs with bacon, country sausage, peppers, and onions, smothered with country gravy and escorted by helpings of grits or skillet potatoes and a tag-along biscuit ($8.25). Satisfy sweet teeth for hours with The Skillet Way, three slices of french toast dusted with powdered sugar and drizzled in honey butter ($6.95 full order/$5.50 half).
At lunchtime, an all-you-can-eat salad bar sings its chlorophyll-kissed siren song to veggie lovers ($6.95), a lump crab-cake patty melt arrives swimming in gooey swiss and rémoulade sauce ($10.50), and a build-your-own skillet burger serves as perch to myriad toppings, including blue cheese, mushrooms, sautéed onions, and jalapeños (starts at $7.95).
Celebrate Hilton Head reviewed Skillets Café. Though some reviewers have mixed opinions about the wait time and the food, they generally enjoy the atmosphere. Seventy-three percent of 60 Urbanspooners like Skillets Café, and 10 Yelpers give the restaurant an average of three stars.
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.
