The staff were great and the food better. I was not expecting such delicious food in Clayton. I highly recommend Skylines

This is our second visit, both times lunch. Excellent service and even better food! Skylines salad was fresh and awesome, tomato basil soup was perfect and didn't feel heavy at all. I also loved the quiche I had on another visit. We plan on returning to try a dinner. This location is very convenient for us.

I had the spinach salad with a crab cake. Wonderful size and just what I needed. Beautiful interior though we chose to eat outside on the patio which is just as pleasantly appointed with brick, ironwork, well manicured hedges and trees. I would heartily recommend this place as a foodies delight.

I can not say enough about this restaurant. I have worked for Tina a lot. The staff there are very much family. The food is always fresh and hot. I love that you can ask what is in your dish and they can tell you every ingredient. Great beer and wine selection. In and outdoor seating. I appreciate the rotating... More

I had a wonderful 1/2 club sandwich, soup and dessert there for lunch. It was very good and I plan to go there a lot because our lunches were better than any other place in Clayton.

Skylines has good food and friendly service. They take reservations, which is a plus. Not a super large restaurant but worth the wait.

I've eaten here a couple of times and it was okay. The atmosphere is great, but the food wasn't well seasoned. It was cooked well, but lacked flavor and the portions were on the small side for the price.

I think the atmosphere is small and cozy, our server was friendly, but the portions for the price were a little lacking. It seemed to take quite a long time to get our food also. My family of four left feeling less than full/satisfied. I'm feeling neutral on this restaurant and we probably won't be going again.
