Great food with atmosphere

Skinners has been around for a while now, owned by a family that goes way back in the business (former owners of Hamilton Park Ale House) and started the trend of great pubs on the now over congested Newark Avenue. The feel is old pub style with great food that is not old in flavor. The... read more

Skinner's Loft is a JC staple spot. The atmosphere is great, staff is always enthusiastic, and the quality of the food is reliable, and above average. They have a very nice beer and wine selection, and a good variety of american cuisine. Their Mac and Cheese is great, as is their Filet.

I came here last weekend for a small surprise bridal brunch. The ambiance and service were perfect. We were promptly seated indoors on the second floor and the waitress came by immediately with menus and drink orders. She came around repeatedly to see how everything was and filled water glasses frequently. The decor was quaint and they had these beautiful... More

great menu and cozy spaces. there are 3 floors for dining if u count the lovely rooftop. nice size bar on the ground floor and while the draft selection is limited in the porters and stouts, they have a good Guinness pour. food variety is good and portions r generous. very friendly staff and great brunch too!

We have been to Skinner's nearly weekly for probably five years now. We have tried just about everything on the menu. It's all great. The daily specials are often just that, special and delicious and provide great variety. But beyond the food, the service is impeccable and the owners are really nice, welcoming people. They make it worthwhile alone. It's... More

This restaurant is fantastic! Great location, great menu, great service! Today was the first time I tried their brunch, and I thought it was very impressive! The food was timely, filling, and delicious. It's very obvious the staff here take each of their roles in the restaurant seriously by being very customer friendly. I recommend sitting on the rooftop, not... More

I haven't been disappointed on anything from here. From the mac n cheese to the pasta to specials everything is delish! Its a little on the pricy side but totally worth it.
