Great breakfast. The service was very good, as was the food. Many of the customers were familiar to the employees, so obviously a local favorite. It was nice to have a breakfast away from the chains. Food was well prepared and promptly served. What more could a person want?

I have been meeting with a group of fellow retirees every other week at the Skylark Diner for nearly twenty years for breakfast and I have never had a bad meal. The service is great and the tables are always set up for our group when we arrive, I can't say enough good things about the staff and the service.

We were staying in Binghamton, and based on Tripadvisor reviews, decided to have a late lunch here. I had the meat loaf dinner, and my wife had the turkey wrap. The portions were generous, the food was great, and the service was top notch. Definitely will come back here next time we're in the Binghamton area.

A traditional diner in the best ways possible. If you like omelots, you must try the "garbage omelot" They are very flexible in swapping one thing for another and our entire order was correct when it came out. Service was excellent and they provide extra parking behind the diner. Would love to go back sometime and try lunch.

If you like an old diner atmosphere and so so diner food, then this is the place for you. Nothing is really bad but nothing is really great either. Great late night spot for sitting, chatting, drinking coffee and grabbing a quick bite.

This is a great Diner lots of fun to visit good food, not too expensive. The staff is attentive. Is the old rail car type Diner with single and family seating. The wraps are delicious! They don't take cards, there is an ATM in the back. It is convenient to the Vestal Parkway and has good parking available.

Went to breakfast with my family. Very old school you can sit up to the counter. Take a booth or at a table. We had pancakes eggs and a waffle. All very good. Would come back again.

The menu is limited, and they only accept cash. That being said, the food is excellent. The breakfast and burgers are my personal favorites. The staff are also quick and friendly.
