This is a good diner but not a great diner. The food is good, the service is friendly, but it is vastly overpriced for what you get. The LOX omelette does not surpass other places yet the price is much higher than anywhere else. However, it's a nice place to go with family.

Just horrible service. C'mon. Re-read the playbook. Waitress was nowhere to be found; never attending to the customers. Host didn't even offer a menu. Food is overpriced. Why weren't we served bread? Did you forget or just cutting corners? Not a favorite of mine at all. Too over priced.

Wait staff attentive. Food hot and promptly served. The sandwiches are inventive traditional with a twist. Good for price.

Every item on the menu is great. Very fast and great service and of course the Chick Pea salad is out of this world.

My wife and I were out running a few errands and decided to stop in for a bite of lunch. We had dined here for breakfast, lunch and a early dinner previously. We were seated promptly upon entering the front door. Our wait staff seemed competent but not overly attentive. We place our order with the staff. My wife ordered... More

Such ashame when this Restaurant /diner opened up it had such promise. ... their menu was exciting and innovative. With that being said, they definitely lost sight of what they had originally intended. Bring back the good that you offered when you first opened. I could go to any diner for what I ordered. . Not worth mentioning

The Skylark Diner offers quite a lengthy all-day breakfast menu. I ordered one of their omelets and asked if it could be made with egg whites and no cheese. I was told that was no problem. A lovely breakfast was delivered a short while later. If you are hungry for breakfast, this is a good place to come.

have eaten both breakfast and lunch here on numerous occasions. good solid food, once in a while they get creative but nothing that really hits it out of the park. - I don't have a menu 'favorite' that compels me to return. don't get me wrong, great food, great staff,,usually very attentive and predictable.

This is what I call an upscale diner with a broad, moderately priced menu and very good service. My family eats brunch here monthly. The food is prepared properly and the portions are just right. For those dining later in the day, this diner also serves a range of alcoholic beverages; an interesting twist for a diner.

The place very spacey. Bathroom dreadful, should have been cleaner. Restaurant waiting area neat. I love the space! I ordered a burger, wings, and l 3 salads for the vegetarians in my Fam :)The salad is totally over priced. Caesar salad that does not include tomatoes only lettuce, light cheese, croutons. I could have bought that at raceway. The salads... More
