Great place to eat and meet. The place looks really small from the door, but it's mutliple floors with lots of room. We ate on the patio out front and enjoyed the people watching, but there is also a rooftop patio. The turkey meatloaf was amazing!

I just moved into Jersey City, and this was the first place I went to. Burgers were great. Nice selection of beers. A=ll in all, a great first stop. I'm sure I will be back many times

A good place for friends, family, or a date. The waitress was very helpful and went out of her way to make me feel comfortable about creating a gluten free order. The food came in a decent amount of time and all was very tasty.

Located on the pedestrian mall section of Newark Avenue, this is an attractive restaurant with an inviting, varied menu. I would like to write something nice but the brunch I had with friends was thoroughly disappointing. The start was a bucket of muffins [corn, bran, blueberry] and biscuits, although stone cold, was still a good opener. I ordered a three... More

Really wanted to like this place. Great atmosphere of vintage building and old pub. Unfortunately my pizza was cold (hard congealed cheese not appealing), the fries were cold (not worth the calories to eat) and the much anticipated meat pie was just warm enough. It was busy but not such that the food should be delivered cold/lukewarm. Waitress was friendly... More

I visited Skinner's Loft last week with a few friends on a recommendation. I really enjoyed the atmosphere and the NY strip steak was excellent . Love the look of the place . It has three floors and you can eat al fresco on the top. I will be back to try some of the other dishes.

The setting is very thoughtful and quaint, with room dividers making the space more intimate and quiet. Service is excellent! The food was very average. I ordered an omelette which came overcooked (despite asking for it on the "wet side") and devoid of any seasoning. Yes it had mushrooms and tomato filling as ordered but there was no salt, no...

Lovely place. I've gone with my dad for lunch, with my friends for Sunday brunch, and with my date for late night drinks. Awesome menu and the place is beautiful. Good for families & children too. They have a great second floor with more space and a roof top.

I visited Skinner's Loft twice during this month with friends. The food was good, I liked NY steak and soup. When we ordered drinks the service was slow, I think this is something to work on. The place is somehow noisy during evenings.

One of our favorite restaurants, that we just don't get to enough. Always a good meal, no matter what time of day, and a very pleasant atmosphere. I wish the bar was a bit bigger, as it gets crowded easily, but the restaurant is cozy and comfortable.
