This is a great spot in JC. Food is always interesting and well worth the trip. The brunch menu is limited but provides a variety of choices. There is a funky little roof top space. Grat place to take friends.

Fabulous rooftop brunch! Coffee was so-so, but the food was very good. The setting was gorgeous and eclectic. We enjoyed the lobster BLT the best. We ordered Bloody Marys which were lovely and had horse radish and olives. It was my birthday and we had a fantastic little sparkler candle that was a blooming flower. Exciting place for a nice...

If you feel like staying in Jersey and skipping the PATH or, god forbid, driving into the city, Skinners Loft will not disappoint. A crowded bar with games on the tube takes up the first floor but upstairs is the eponymous lofty decorated in a slightly middle-eastern motif. We started off with the fried calamari which was the perfect combination... More

My husband and I had dinner at Skinner's Loft over the weekend, and we had a great experience. We sat upstairs and the atmosphere was comfortable, eclectic and warm. We started with the cippolini onion blossoms; very tasty. My husband enjoyed his steak and parmesan fries and the burger I had was excellent. I also really loved the side of... More

Very good food, even by NYC standards. Cute place. Great bread basket. Must try in Jersey City. The salmon deviled eggs were so good.

An amazing spot for brunch in Jersey City. Fast and friendly service, Skinner's Loft can cure your weekend hangover or satisfy your craving for a delicious meal. They start you off with a bucket of homemade muffins which are addictive. All the meals are fresh and on the larger side, so you won't be leaving hungry.

Good brunch choices to munch along with a Saturday morning beer. Great ambiance and location is a plus.

If you ever wanted to have a local bar that reminded of your childhood show 'Cheers' then here it is. You will always know someone in here, the staff all know your name and the food is good. Now admit you are signing the 'Cheers' theme tune. You are, aren't you? :)

Skinner's Loft has good food. Reasonably Priced. Very comfortable place to eat. Not loud and you can have a conversation such as we did visiting a relative living in Jersey City. We walked to Skinner's Loft. The service was prompt and courteous. Food was good, filling, and hit the spot. We went for a late dinner and were very happy... More
