Finally tried this diner. It's totally upscale with very cool decor. Went of a Friday night. One side turned into a cocktail lounge while the other side was for dining. The lounge side looked like a night place to grab an afterwork drink without being in a dive or a chain restaurant. People looked like they were relaxed and having... More

This may look like a traditional diner, but the food is better than what you grew up eating if you're from NJ. Nice selection of entrees for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Portions are generous and prices are fair. One of the best diners in NJ!

Met my sister and niece here based on hype to celebrate a birthday and were not disappointed. Crowded but we were seated right away on a Tuesday at 1 PM. Waitress was attentive yet we were not rushed. Received accurate description to menu questions. Shared a turkey club with my sister which was plenty - roasted turkey (not deli meat)... More

Don't let the name fool you, it calls itself a Diner but it is more of a chic restaurant. Decorum was clean and bright. Staff was friendly. You get a free piece of bread, which was a nice touch. I had a Cuban sandwich, which was grilled just enough to make it absolutely delicious. I would eat here again.

I have always enjoyed the food here. Only some waiters are very attentive and efficient, others are preoccupied. The environment is not quite comfortable but the decor is a nice change. The greatest disappointment is a restaurant with a booze cart... and they have theirs out early in the morning where the promoter has no discretion or regard for kids.... More

We were in the area on business and basically stumbled upon this place. The décor and number of cars in the lot enticed us to give it a try. Turned out to be a decent stop for a light dinner. Weren't sure if we should go with the dinner items or sandwiches, opted for sandwiches. Both were very good. Not... More

Really enjoyed this diner with my son and husband. Service was good, food was good and were really liked where we were sitting - by the bar in a sports bar like atmosphere. The only complaint is that the restrooms need to be cleaned more often - this was a turn off.

First time trying the skylark and won't be my last. Went on a Monday afternoon with the family. The service was great, it was not busy at all, but they were still fully staffed. The server was friendly and kept checking on us. They have a children's menu and the prices are very reasonable for the kids. They also give... More
