Cool Diner From 1956

We had the two egg special, which comes with toast and home fries. I liked it, but the homefries had a light after taste that was buttery. I'm not sure if I'd want those again, but it was good enough to eat. The eggs were perfect though and coffee was good.. The waitress was very friendly and... read more

What can one expect from diner in Vestal? The answer is not much. If you come into this diner with that expectation you will not be disappointed. The chefs make what they can with the low quality ingredients provided to them, and it turns out decent at best. You are not in for a treat. You are in for an... More

Stopped in on the way for family trip to the finger lakes. Found this next to a great local farmers market on Saturday morning. Can't beat this for a slice of Americana and 3.99

Traditional, cozy, old-fashioned diner atmosphere and food. Their chocolate chip pancakes and corned beef hash can't be beat! Perfect place to stop for a lazy weekend breakfast with friends or family. The servers are always very sweet.

My family and I enjoy going here together for the omelettes and other breakfast options. The omelettes are always very good, and the pancakes and french toast are always very tasty. The only negative I ever notice is that the diner is often VERY cold, even in the summer when I don't have a jacket to cover up. The waitress... More

Typical small diner fare. OK food...OK service. No credit or debit cards accepted. Cash only which is mind boggling in this day and age.

I drive past the place virtually every day, often two or more times a day in fact. I've even eaten breakfasts, lunches, dinners and taken breaks there over the past, what, 50 years now! But it has been a while so when three of us had to have a business like lunch, the Sklylark Diner right on the Vestal Parkway... More

My wife and I stopped her on a rainy night to get gas at the station next door, saw the diner and figured, what the heck, lets try it. It was a step back in time to the 50s, it had a real diner decor, the friendly greeting from Robin our waitress was the first clue as to the nature... More

Food here is good, a satisfactory local choice. Ate breakfast, lunch, and dinner at different times. Friendly staff and tasty meals. Reasonably priced diverse selection.

we go here because my husband used to eat here when he was in high school. Food is standard diner food. Coffee is great.
