This is my boyfriends and I go to spot! We used to have breakfast here every week but notice we were getting chunky so now we go atleast twice a month. The biscuits and gravy are to die for, the waffle is just as good too. We've had different varieties of their pancakes all are yummy. They have this deep... More

This is the best diner to go if you want a hearty delicious breakfast at an amazing value. The food is always cooked right and the staff is wonderful. Go early to get the good deals.

I had been here before, but the other day I wanted an early breakfast (I had a craving for good old Southern biscuits and gravy), and Skyway Jack's was the one that came to mind. In many ways, the best recommendation for this is that it is the "un-chain". Everything is pretty much just like you would expect, with no... More

What this restaurant lacks in modernity, it more than makes up for in value for your dining dollar. Skyway Jack's is one of the classic, local institutions who caters to the nothin fancy crowd. They open early, and close early too. The food is delivered to the table in short order, from super friendly staff who love their jobs and... More

I had standard breakfast of bacon, eggs and home fries - nothing fancy - and it was prepared well. I got the corn muffin instead of toast and it was a good pick. They serve homemade strawberry jelly - very good. The waitstaff were very attentive and friendly. I think they refilled my coffee cup at least 4 times -... More

I have had an early breakfast here and it was a great value and we'll prepared. Be sure to request a toasted corn muffin instead of bread. It is outstanding. However, in visiting for lunch, we were much less impressed. My greek salad was below average though there was plenty of it. And it seemed a little expensive for the... More

Interesting little breakfast joint, with some plusses and minuses. Good menu and friendly staff. We went in with an electric scooter and there was a wait, as I understand is normal for breakfast. And there were only a couple of tables that could be accessed via scooter, and they did hold one for us when it opened up. Fortunately it... More

We went just because it was on the way to the beach-it's in a part of town that's a little sketchy but we were pleasantly surprised! I had the breakfast pie, which was this yummy quiche-like concoction with hollandaise sauce, dad had a big farmer's breakfast and baby girl had the best pancakes I've ever tasted! Everything was really good... More

This is clearly a local institution. Friendly service. Breakfast fare with regional dishes. PA scrapple. Eggs, pancakes, waffles, etc. Food was good. Biscuits and gravy were better than average. The sausage gravy was spicy but not too spicy. Good texture. This place is clearly the owners passion and they aim to serve all. Very inexpensive.

Been going here for years. The best breakfast this side of the Skyway. It's hot, fresh & tasty. In all the years going there, never once have I had my order wrong. The only thing I won't try, scrapple. But everything else, perfect :)
