We went here for the first time because we wanted to try the chicken and waffles, however it's only available on Sunday's. So we will have to go back to test their brunch. The fried mac n cheese was awesome I can say that. I got the lamb burger, which was good, but not good on a bun. It was... More

Thanks Ashley. The fried mac & cheese has become a new favorite in the past six months. I welcome any other feedback on the lamb burger. Maybe on a ciabatta bun? It is a little pricier than the other menu items based on the price of the ground lamb. Thank for the feedback!! Tina Bolick tina@skylinescafe.com 919-550-7619 More

Clayton is fortunate to have several great restaurants! One of the best is Skylines Cafe. However, Skylines is much more than just a Cafe. While it has a good lunch business, it is a great place for dinner. In Summer, you have a choice to eat inside or outside. I prefer inside as it has a very cosmopolitan atmosphere and... More

Dined here with my wife a few nights ago. The restaurant is a great size for a café/ bistro. This restaurant does have a full service bar. When we arrived there was one server who was serving, hosting and bartending. No one else was visible. After taking some orders she came and sat us. She apologized, and we understood because...

My friend and I went on a Sunday afternoon. One waitress was on staff, which was fine as there were only three occupied tables. Our meals were nothing special and the prices were a bit high. The extra charges for seconds on hot tea were totally unexpected as most restaurants do not charge for a second cup of tea.

It is quite typical that a charge is put on for a second tea bag which is what you requested. I am sorry that you thought the prices were high. We make our own waffle batter with real butter so $6 seems like a fair price and $9 for shrimp and grits is reasonable for food cooked to order. I... More

First off, the Stuffed Chicken is worth the 30 min wait. It is wonderful. On Wednesdays they have specials that are interesting and flavorful. One of the better places to eat in Clayton

Skylines Cafe is an excellent place to stop in for lunch when you aren't in the mood for a fast food lunch. The service is excellent and the food is very good. All of their wraps are very tasty and their chicken salad is excellent! My favorite food on the menu is their Spinach Salad. It has cranberries and lots... More

I have eaten here for lunch and dinner and enjoyed each visit. I have dined indoors and out and have had good service each time. I have dined with large groups and the service is a little slower....but that can happen when you have a party of 10 almost anywhere. That food is very good and the portions are adequate.... More

Having been here for lunch and dinner, food was very good each time. Portions are adequate, but a tad small for the price. Some dishes were underseasoned but nicely presented and cooked as they should be. Service is a little slow considering how quiet the place has been when we were there but it appears that most/all of the menu... More

Been here twice and service was very slow. Was one of maybe three parties in the entire restaurant and food took an extremely long time to arrive. Both times.
