The menu has something for everyone. This was my third visit and it was, like the other two visits, quite enjoyable. The space is quite tight but once you get settled you hardly notice it. The drinks are generous portions and so is the food, I enjoyed the stuffed pork chop and my companions also enjoyed their food.

Was traveling on business and was on my own for one night. Found this place on Trip Advisor and thought I would give it a go. I was not disappointed. Service was excellent and genuinely friendly. Food was very good. The menu was limited but had a good variety. I had the salmon for main and warm chocolate cake with... More

Had a late dinner here with my mom, sister, and cousin on my sister's recommendation. We sat upstairs amongst warm candlelight and tables set with unique and sometimes whimsical place settings. We all ordered filet mignon sliders, which were fantastic and came with crispy shoestring fries. We added various sides to try as well. All loved the tender Brussels sprouts... More

I may be biased as I live in Downtown JC however, this is one of the most consistent places to dine. It is casual, yet upscale. The food is delicious. It is always a pleasurable experience!

Get there early if you want the all you can eat steamed clams. We did not and got hamburgers which were quite good. The only downside is the bar closes rather early on weeknights (10PM?). Regardless good food.

We have a party of 6 celebrating a special family occasion. We ate on the roof top deck. It was a lovely evening. The service was very good and the food was pretty good. I had a special tuna dish. The presentation was very nice. The tuna was tasty but was a thin cut. Was ordered medium rare but came... More

Delicious food. I've eaten there a few times and was never disappointed. It is a tad more than I care to spend, hence, only gone a few times. If you just drint water, the bill is manageable. Drink and you're paying through the nose. Wine by the glass is overpriced and only "just ok." Wish this place was BYOB, then... More

Whenever friends come in to visit, the first place on our list is Skinner's. They always have a couple vegetarian choices and they do seem to please our omnivorous friends. The rooftop is a treat in the summer time. The ceiling on the second floor is majestic, but bare in mind there are a lot of steps up to their... More
