Great Clayton restaurant

I ate at this restaurant once and really enjoyed it. At the time, I was on a more strict diet, so I didn't get to enjoy all that I normally would have enjoyed while eating here but it was easy to pick items that I could eat and they were delicious. It is a little pricey when the location and... read more

Serving portions were smallish for the price. Appetizer, calamari was well prepared. Service was pleasant. Main course of Shrimp linguine marinara was plentiful, shrimp were cooked well, not overcooked. The dinner portion of salmon was pitifully small, leading me to wonder just how much smaller the lunch portion could be. Tables really close together, which forced me to overhear the... More

Although the restaurant is located in an ugly strip center, it is tastefully arranged into a small dining area of tables for 2 or 4 and a few booths. The best part is it is quiet, despite the tile floors and the soft jazz music. There is a good variety of salads, soups, white chili, sandwiches, and larger entrees. Great... More

So, not only is the food at Skylines delicious, but the atmosphere is great for lunch or a special dinner. I've been many times, but this last time was the best! My sister and I reserved the restaurant to throw my parents a surprise party. Everything was perfect! This is my mama's favorite restaurant and she eats there frequently, so... More

I loved the tomato bisque I ordered here before, but the last time it was way too salty. We mentioned this to our server. He replied that that is the way they always make it. Service was slow that day and it seemed he wasn't paying attention to his job. Everyone in my party of 4 enjoyed their meal except... More

The ambiance was very nice; you almost forget you're in a strip shopping center. Food was OK but overpriced.

It is no surprise to the regulars who frequent this very comfortable (but professionally run) restaurant that you will always see the owner Tina Bolick always visible and engaging her customers here. Wether you are a first timer here or one of many who have figured this place out, Skylines is a very pleasant place to grab lunch, dinner or... More

My Clayton Club was OK, but my 7 steak fries were quite disappointing. If I can count them on 2 hands, they are certainly not enough

We were pleasantly surprised to find Skylines Cafe just east of Clayton's fast food strip on Hwy. 70. The cafe's ambiance is peaceful and fresh with soft jazz music playing in the background. My husband and I could actually have a conversation without feeling bombarded with background noise. Stephan was our waiter and he provided prompt, friendly, and courteous service.... More
