The server was nice. Food was delivered quickly. My husband and I both had steaks. They where good. My favorite part was the roll and fried okra. The tea was good too. We would eat there again if traveling through West Plains.

Skillets is a good family restaurant similar to Denny's. Serves all three meals. Great breakfast service but very average in selections and tastes. Knowledgeable in multiple cuisines but not really Mastering any. Good but not great. Good choice for families or business meals. Large facility,...More

I had a breakfast and my wife had liver and unions. Both meals were very good. The service too was good and the food priced right. The atmosphere is a typical well-kept cafe. We would return again if we come back to this town.
