    The food, server and ambience were excellent. We've already recommended you to friends and we'll be back. The only suggestion is to not seat people in the patio doorway directly under a very noisy fan. We were seated there and asked to move and after us I saw three other couples seated there who also asked to move.

    Taylor was our server, she was outstanding!!!!! The food was beyond delicious, I even tried something I didn't like as a child (beets) and I'm in love with them now. The atmosphere was great, the view was nice, I just can't say enough about it.

    Food was good. Drinks were hit or miss. We got a Long Island Iced Tea, Blue Motorcycle, and Cosmo Martini that did not taste good at all but the Lemon Drop Martinis and Crown & Coke were on point. A little pricey in my opinion.

    To be honest I made reservations for my anniversary so they would be prepared to seat us in a good table and they seat us the middle of everything! They didn’t acknowledge our anniversary or nothing . For me is highly expensive for the type of food they serve and they don’t even have allot of options. I have eaten in better places for less but better food!

    The best restaurant in the area. Roof top makes it special. Staff are always attentive and professional. Best so far is a young man, Collin. Knows his profession well. I've benn a waiter in a 5star restaurant and Collin is on his way to a great career. The chef turns out remarkable dishes. No short cuts.

    We had a wonderful waiter. His name is Collin. We recommend everyone request his service. A remarkable professional, personally enjoyable and very attentive to our complete satisfaction. The food preparation and presentation was perfect. The volume of "noise" from guests, etc. was high but expected. With a more formal dinning experience available on the main level. The roof top Skyline is a place for the community and guests to meet and have fun. Overall, a great experience, thanks to the main event, Collin our waiter.

    Great food and service. Would love more comfortable seating. The chairs are poorly designed. Water was great. Noise was high because the plastic was down because of rain. Not their fault.

    Stayed the weekend in the area for a graduation. Sat outside with beautiful views. The servers were excellent, cordial and flexible- even when we had to move inside because of an approaching storm. The portions were large and food flavorful. The only small complaint was that the food took a while- about 45 minutes from the time we ordered but this may have been an oversight as we saw people who came in after us get their food before us. Would definitely go again!

    My husband and I celebrated our 8 year wedding anniversary at Skyline and it was absolutely wonderful! From the service, to the drinks, to the food, it was spectacular! We can’t wait to go back! The fried oysters for an appetizer were delicious! I got the mahi-mahi for my entrée and it was the best meal I’ve had in a long time. My husband got the trout and he practically licked his plate clean. They also gave us a complimentary champagne to toast for our anniversary. And our waitress was kind enough to go outside to take a few pictures for us before we left. It was a wonderful experience!

    While the restaurant seemed nice, it was hard to enjoy it for its full value being sat so far from the view. We didn’t finish a meal here, as the menu didn’t have a single vegetarian friendly dish on it (including all the salads that had meat) We were told we could modify a salad to drop the meat or get a vegetable pasta, but at this point we realized we wouldn’t have real options unless we went somewhere else to eat. Which is exactly what we did. We had already ordered cocktails at this point, which we happily finished before we left and they were fantastic. We are honestly surprised to find a place without a single vegetarian entree, we are used to limited choices but none at all seemed surprising for any restaurant worth its salt. Wish you had more options, would have loved to stay for dinner.
