Overview

All-day diners flock to Skillet Ballard (one of a few Skillet locations), a buzzy neighborhood spot offering hearty American comfort fare like the popular fried chicken sammy with charred jalapeño aioli, pork belly and cornmeal waffles or a bacon jam burger on a brioche bun. Drink offerings include local draft beers and wines, house cocktails and boozy shakes like the Colonel Parker (bourbon, peanut butter, syrup, vanilla ice cream).
