When and where it all began

Group of employees standing with Ross and Noreen Edlund

Ross and Noreen Edlund (pictured above, second from left / first row) founded Skillets Restaurants in 1995, in Naples, Florida.

Their goal was to create a restaurant that offered the local community higher quality comfort food and personal service than budget diners and bland restaurant chains.


“Our mission has always focused on preparing homemade, delicious, and nutritious breakfasts and lunches from scratch.  We are committed to providing top-notch, friendly, and efficient service in an inviting and comfortable surrounding.”

Premium Ingredients

We use premium, thick-cut Smokehouse bacon, slow-roasted corned beef brisket hash, oven-baked Skillets potatoes, fresh-squeezed Kennesaw juices, fresh berries, AA large eggs, and dry-cured deli meats. Our private label whole-bean coffee comes from Guatemala, and we feature PG Tips imported English tea. We proudly source dairy products from the local Dakin family-operated Dairy.


Twenty-five years later

Twenty-five years later, our dedicated cooks, servers, hosts, and managers continue to provide guests with the most exceptional breakfasts and lunches. Many members of our team - whom we consider our extended family - have worked with Skillets for over 20 years! 


We consider our guests and local communities as a part of this big family. Skillets supports local causes through fundraising and other initiatives. 

We match guest donations dollar for dollar for the Children's Advocacy Center, who serves as caregivers and advocates for abused or homeless children.


Thank you for visiting with us.

"Welcome to our home away from home. We hope you enjoy the food, service, and atmosphere, and by all means - make this a great day!"
