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

Being a 'local' I still continue to go to Skylines Café frequently. The food is still excellent, and haven't had any problem that wasn't immediately resolved by talking to the owner or staff. We enjoy the occasional updates to the menu and the specials are just that... special. I see people noting the slow service, but my answer to that... More
