Skylark is a chef-run large diner (with optional sports bar) with affordable, fine- dining entrees and excellent burgers, sandwiches, homemade soups, and salads. Service ranges from excellent to fair. They always have several fresh fish options as well as other American fare. It's been our... read more

I have never been disappointed here after several visits. I often have the turkey BLT which is absolutely delicious. Fresh carved turkey breast, NOT the usual deli turkey. Always comes with very fresh tomato and lettuce on good toast.

I live a mile away from this diner and go there 1 to 2 times a month. Even on Sunday, when it's jam packed with the after church crowd, I haven't had to wait more than 15 minutes for a table. Food is excellent, and so is the service.

The food was very good, I had a Korean BBQ burger, and it was cooked just the way I ordered it, and the fries were great. They have a decent beer selection. There were about 10-12 staff members around when we were there for dinner, and I noticed that only 1 of them ever smiled. Our waitress was not that... More

Favorite spot to eat breakfast or lunch for past 7-8 years. Always tasty, always best service, fresh food - this is as good as your local diner can get.

Its never fun going to the cemetery, even when its just to check on the condition of the graves. But one thing that ameliorates the unpleasantness is a stop at the SKYLARK DINER. It is the most consistently outstanding diner I've visited in the past six years, ranging from its bright modern look to excellent made-to-order food. And I also... More

This is a far cry from the typical Triple D restaurants that Guy reviews (maybe because it was for a special-he also had a nightcap here, not a meal I read). We were visiting the area and made a special trip as my teens are into cool restaurants. It's a old school diner on the outside but upscale inside-waiters in... More

Looks like a typical diner on the outside but tables are set with cloth napkins and dinner fare is more innovative- I had an excellent spicy Korean BBQ burger. Prices are comparable to others in the vicinity. Service was attentive and helpful.
