My husband and I went for dinner and will definitely return!! We had artichoke dip, grilled chicken Caesar salad, and the stuffed chicken (which takes 30 minutes to make, but well worth it), which was all delicious. The service and atmosphere was great, too!! We will be back!!

I hadn't heard about this restaurant when a friend took me here. The pleasant ambiance and interior are unfortunately not represented by the industrial building facade. We started off with drinks which were good but a bit overpriced. We ordered crab cakes which were tasty but the sauce was a but too spicy. When we asked for a softer roumelade... More

Wednesday nights at Skylines is an ideal spot for a mid-week date night. My wife and I have gone in a couple of times recently on Wednesdays for their 1/2 price wine bottles and their special tapas menu. If its just the two of you, sit at one of the small high tops in the bar area for an intimate... More

We were in Clayton visiting family last Friday and my husband and I wanted a bite to eat. After reading the reviews, we decided to try the Skyland Cafe. We ordered the Skyland Salad with seared tuna and the Spinach Salad with crab cake. We were not disappointed. There is a good selection of beer and wine. I enjoyed a... More

Thank you so much for taking the time to rave about the restaurant! You ordered some favorites and the spinach salad and crab cakes have been around for 10 years and counting. Nichole does a great job. We look forward to seeing you on your next visit! Tina More

We visited skylines to bid goodbye to a friend who was moving. This was not our first visit nor will it be our last. Food is consistently fresh and very good. Notable was the spinach salad and tuna taco. Desserts are awesome along with the best coffee in Clayton.

Been there twice and really enjoyed it. Sat outside both times - the little patio has big umbrella's for shade and is far enough off the road it is quiet. I've had the hummus plate and their salad with grilled chicken and it's very good food. The staff is very friendly and gracious. Service is the 'relaxed' side - this... More

I love this restaurant. I always enjoy my entree and the chocolate torte is the best dessert in Clayton! The service can be slow, so go with someone whose company you enjoy, have a glass of wine, slow down, and enjoy.

Went to have lunch with the wife and try someplace new. We started with the calamari, which was good. Then I had the Shrimp in vodka sauce and penne and wife Chicken primavera. I wasn't that impressed with the Shrimp dish, lacked flavor. The Chicken was okay. The place looked nice and service was good with very friendly service.

If you have a while for lunch, this is the place to go in Clayton. The food is always delicious and great quality. I have never been disappointed with any meal I have ordered from her. The crab cakes are awesome. I love the spinach salad with a crab cake for lunch... The stuffed chicken for dinner is a must.
