If you really want great food with a very good atmosphere you need to go to the Skylark Diner! Every time we have gone there has always been a great experience. Too many things on the menu are great to say just one item is it!

We stopped at Skylar Diner for lunch on our road trip from Massachusetts to D.C. because it was at the half-way point and I really didn't want to eat at the highway rest stops. I loved that this restaurant looks like a diner and has quick service like a diner, but has the menu of a more upscale restaurant. I... More

Went here because of the great reviews. My Salmon was suppose to be marinated in lemongrass but I could never taste it. Fish was overdone. My husband had a slow roasted beef sandwich but asked for more sauce because it lacked flavor.

Love their bread and the variety of food. The fussiest eater will find something yummy. I like that they substitute a vegetable or any side dish that comes with dish. Sauces on food are gourmet. Food is never overcooked like most diners. Upscale place but not upscale prices. Pasta, fish & roast beef sandwiches have all been good & fresh!

When I arrived at the diner I immediately noticed the great presentation. This definitely transferred to the inside as well. Customer service was very good throughout the meal. I ordered a Greek salad with blackened chicken and it was very good. I enjoyed my meal and received great service. It's very clean and well presented throughout.

Attended a meeting at the Skylark Diner. Its not really just a diner. First thing you need to know … The address, 17 Wooding Avenue, is misleading. The Skylark Diner is on Route 1, at the corner of Wooding. If you try to follow your navigation system on to Wooding Avenue to get into the diner you will just get... More

We held an event at the skylark and they were most helpful with everything. The bar section was held for us and they accommodated a party of 50 flawlessly. The food here is always outstanding and the decor is awesome - very different from your average diner because the Skylark is not your average diner.

The wait was about 15 minutes and we were seated by a wndow. The menu was varied. I ordered a vegie omelette with turkey sausage and grits, along with a few... More
