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

My family enjoys going to Skylines at least 4 times a month. Have always had great service and great food. Food is always fresh and hot. Look forward to the crab cake appetizers and the pecan crusted swai.

I've been very skeptical about this restaurant but decided to take a chance on something new and local. Big mistake. As other reviewers stated, the food took a long time to come out. Meanwhile, we were given stale rolls (gross!) to keep us busy. The pub fries were decent but never had them with balsamic vinegar. The food was poor... More

Nice restaurant for lunch or dinner. They have very nicely prepared food, and a reasonable variety. There prices are a little higher they warrant and there service is a bit slow.

My party and I arrived at 6:30 on a Wednesday evening to celebrate my girlfriends 40th birthday. After being seated, we were forgotten about repeatedly throughout the evening. The service was awful, with the staff more interested in complaining about changes that management had made. On top of all that, both of the entrees my girlfriend chose for her dinner... More

The owner Tina seems to be there all the time ... maybe thats why this place continues satisfy so many of its customers on... More

Stopped in for lunch and pleasantly surprised by the numerous choices and great lunch special pricing. (was concerned since a few comments about high pricing). Clearly, the pricing is in line with both the food quality, service, and choices. Higher end food choices and pleasant atmosphere. This is by far the best place I have eaten when in the Clayton...
