“Great food in a clean and inviting location”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

This restaurant has 100% sanitation score and the food is very tasty and well executed. For starters wife had the soup and was very well done. I had the calamari, perfectly cooked, nice and tender not rubbery like other places. My entree was the hamburger steak and salad and wife had the crab cake. Will have to drive back to try some of the other dishes. Too bad for us that this place is not around the corner. Great selection of wines and beer, we are now fans of yuenglin. This without a doubt is the best restaurant in Clayton and surrounding areas. Loved the atmosphere and comfortable tables and chairs.

“Food that makes you feel great.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013

This is an outstanding little restaurant, with healthy, fresh offerings and inventive specials every day. The appetizers are not your usual heavy, salty fare. The salads are refreshing and come with just the right amount of house dressings made on site. Although the menu is not large, we can always find a well prepared entree and delicious sides. Skylines is one of the only restaurants in the area where the chef knows how to cook fish (besides frying it). We frequent Skylines and enjoy the cordial wait staff and the professionalism of the owner. She is personable and caring, and makes all the desserts daily (and they are great, too). They are knowledgeable about wine, and to top off the pleasant, relaxed atmosphere, superb musicians play occasionally on a Friday night. If you value healthy, well-made food, you will like Skylines.

“Good lunch spot and after work meeting spot”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013 via mobile

The lunch is quite good with a nice menu selection. Dinner is average. Patio dining in warm weather is a pleasant experience. The bar area is small but intimate

“Pass this one by”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

Enjoy local dining rather than chains but after 3 different visits here, time to move on. Atmosphere is good but it stops there. Service is generally poor, food is average at best.

“Excellent service!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

I come to Skylines on an almost weekly basis and have always had excellent service! Everyone is friendly and it's a wonderful place to hang out after work. Lots of fun at the bar or you can dine at a table and have a nice, romantic dinner. The owner, Tina, is great and spends time with the customers and all the waitresses are very helpful and always fun!
