This is not your ordinary diner. Food is much better than a regular diner but prices are higher as well.

I've probably eaten 75% of the things on this menu, and everything is great, no matter what meal you're eating. The staff is also professional and the service is good. This is not really a diner as much as it is a classy, full service restaurant. This is a cloth-napkin place with a diner decor. Excellent burgers, sandwiches, salads, and... More

I cannot stand the attitude the waitress that gave attitude like I was an incredible inconvenience to her day because of course how dare I ask... More

My family went here to eat so we could spend a little time together. It had a nice diner "feel" and the food was not bad. My only issue was that they served me ginger ale that was clearly all seltzer and no soda. I told them about it and they got it right the second time. My dish was... More

Not fine dining for sure but the hamburgers are good and the service is adequate. They have a bar on-site and at time do themed nights which draws in a good crowd. Decent breakfast served here but expect to wait on the weekend for a table. I don't recommend the table by the front door...you'll be stared at by hungry... More

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
