Cool ambiance but the menu is a bit overpriced, last night had "the small" grilled chicken salsa verde sandwich, with very very minimal salsa verde and an extra paper-thin slice of tomato, and a side of tasteless chick peas. The menu described this as "lettuce, tomato, avocado-cilantro lime sauce, mayo, crispy chips, ciabatta" I think I may have detected a... More

If you are looking for a great place for Brunch this is it. The parking Lot is full but don't let that stop you they have an amazing amount of employees and the wait is well worth it. There is a traveling Mimosa cart with Bloody Mary's. Skylark Diner is super clean and service is fast. The food was great... More

My wife and I have been to Skylark several times. Every time we are there, we are impressed. It is something between a diner and fine dining. You can have your rueben or burger with a glass of wine or a craft beer. But you can have that burger with a short rib on top. The full meals are the... More

Great lunch. Super fresh salad and delicious raisin bread. Definitely a must try for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I've eaten at Skylark at all times of the day and it was always excellent. Nice meeting place for friends and family.

From the outside you are attracted to the very nice facade and super cool, throw back interior. The bathrooms are super nice as well. However the food was average and the service was almost that good. While I enjoy a nice, gentle pace at most meals, our waitress almost seemed as if she'd rather so something else. The food was...

I've been to the Skylark on numerous occasions, mostly because of its appearance. It is suitable for a date or a meeting with friends. The bar area is especially hip and appealing. This is the only way this diner stands out. The food is nothing to brag about or even to recall later. However, I do remember an artichoke dip... More

Visiting a friend in the area, he took me to Sylark diner for breakfast. Very nice, clean and the staff were extremely courteous. Food was very good and my friend who lives local said the food is good no matter what time of the day.

We ate here after attempting to visit TopGolf on a Sat night in January. There was a 3 hour wait so decided to look for a place to eat locally. We were not disappointed. The menu has something for everyone in the family. Burgers, sandwiches, steak and pasta entrees. We were a party of 6. Ordered the spinach artichoke dip,... More

I love coming here. The food is always tasty and the ingredients are fresh. This is more than a diner- it's upscale but still affordable. They also serve alcohol. The diner is one side and the bar is on the other. But you can have a drink on the diner side and vice versa. Very chill- very low key. Good... More
