Silver Skillet Restaurant Restaurant Review

: Surrounding sophisticated restaurants don't intimidate the Silver Skillet, icon of another day. The list of films that have been at least partially made at this restaurant is legendary. Breakfast, served all day, is traditional Southern, with grits, eggs, buttermilk biscuits and side meats (get the country ham and red-eye gravy or the grilled corned beef hash). We've had better sausage cream gravy, and the grits are just fair. Pancakes are first-rate. At lunch, the draws are Southern-style vegetables and meats for reasonable money. Grilled pork chops are tender, and yam soufflé, meatloaf, collard greens with cornbread, and chicken-fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy and green beans give you a taste of what brings 'em back. Check the daily specials. Homemade ice box lemon pie is utterly sinful, but there are other equally tempting choices as well. No alcohol.
