Nice surprise!

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... read 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.

The service is good, the place is comfortable and the food delicious. Excellent bread and menu more than diner quality. I highly recommend.

This places consistently pumps out great tasting quality plates! Literally anything you order off the menu is good, wish they were open 24/7 like a true Jersey diner tho.

Even though it is more a restaurant than a diner, the atmosphere is cosy and the place pretty nice. They offer a good variety of food at prices that are slightly above average. Every time I have been there, I ate salads and they are delicious, but the menu is much richer. The service is good and quick. It is... More

We have eaten at the Skylark on several occasions. Each time we have been very pleased with the selections we have made. The seafood selections were some of the best we have had anywhere we gone. I would highly recommend the Skylark to anyone want an excellent meal.

After driving for a couple of hours came across this diner. Was very surprised how upscale it was . Prices were resonable and the food was good. Very nice atmosphere and extremely friendly.Will go back again if I am in the area

Although billed as a "diner," it has a much more upscale atmosphere. The food and service are good. Try the fried calamari - it's the best I've ever had. The sandwiches, wraps, and salads are great. I have avoided the dinners because of the prices, which keep me from going more often even though it is close to where I... More

The Skylark Diner is about as good as it gets when it comes to this type of restaurant - an upscale diner, with a very wide selection across all ethnicities. The restaurant is large, and the two rows of tables near the greenhouse-like front windows are exceptionally well-lit. The place is clean, and the restrooms are in exemplary condition. Service...

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
