    We had a wonderful family dinner at Skyline! We were able to sit on the enclosed patio with gas fire pits. Cocktails were delicious as was the blackened salmon special, tuna steak burger and key lime pie. We will be back again but in the summer to take advantage of the open air rooftop and view.

    Great place to share an appetizer and enjoy a cocktail while taking in the view before going and enjoying a less expensive dinner elsewhere. We thought it was pricey for food of average quality. (Sorry, Skyline) Service was excellent, however, and the restaurant has great ambience. I guess the ambience is what we paid for.

    This place has never missed the mark. Always ask about the specials and you will not be disappointed. The menu is thoughtful and there is plenty of variety but it is not too big to cause decision fatigue. Every drink from the bar that I have had has been perfectly prepared and delicious. One of the best places to eat a meal in the Lynchburg area.

    Special filet was small and over priced. $58 It was delicious but I would have expected a reasonable price with a small size filet. Service was great Rainy evening was a little disappointing but not skyline fault but the AC was kicked up too much.

    Went for a birthday get together and had a very nice time. Our waitress was very nice, but took long absences in between checking on the table. The kitchen was also slow getting food out even when we were the only ones in the restaurant. We spent a total of two hours in the restaurant and only had appetizers and drinks. The food was delicious and the drinks were very tasty.

    We were looking for a place to celebrate our birthdays on a Sunday evening in Lynchburg. This was the best place that was open - and it was a good choice. The view and atmosphere is spectacular and the service is exceptionable. There's a nice variety to choose from and the prices are reasonable.

    It was very good. We enjoyed our waitress Delany she was beyond considerate and was a joy in a world of apathetic staff. Her recommendations were spot on and the food was in a word spectacular. The views and and the ambiance overall were exceptional. We will be returning and will recommend this gem to others.

    After reading reviews of several restaurants in Lynchburg I chose Skyline for the proximity to our event and the views. The views did not disappoint! Food was good, spinach dip and chocolate cake were yummy. Chefs special ravioli good as well but I felt the price was a bit high. Would visit again for cocktails and snacks!

    For our anniversary my husband and I enjoyed our dinner at Skyline. We were treated to a complimentary glass of champagne which was a special treat. The food was delicious and presentation was awesome. The Hostess and our waitress, Gracie, were very kind and professional. Thanks Skyline for the great anniversary experience.

    Experience at Skyline was not as good as it had been in my previous visits. The time from when the first main course hit the table until the last was over 15 minutes. This makes it very awkward as folks were waiting until everyone was served before starting. Some of us had cold food by the time we got to eat. Add to that that people who ordered medium rare steaks got well done and people that ordered well done got rare steaks. Luckily they were willing to exchange plates after cutting into them. Also we struggled at times getting drinks. Not at all what I was used to at this restaurant. I probably will not use them again for a business meal.

    We all loved it! The food was great. I hope they add the fish cake sandwich to their normal menu because it was delicious! We had a party of 10 and they were prepared when we walked thru the door. Our waitress was great! Manager came to check on us and she was very sweet. Off street parking was convenient. The hotel is absolutely stunning, I recall it being abandoned for many years as a child and to see its transformation was breathtaking. We will definitely keep this one on the list!

    We were celebrating our mom's birthday. at the Skyline restaurant. Eli was our server. She was very attentive to our party of 4, paying special attention to our mom. We started with the tuna poke for an appetizer. It was wonderfully spiced along with the wonton chips. For our entrees, two of us had the herbed chicken breast, one had the stuffed trout and one had the salmon special. The meals were tastefully presented and mouth-watering. Everyone in our party was pleased with what we had ordered. After dinner, Eli and the staff bought my mom a serving tray with 'Happy birthday' written in a chocolate sauce and also a dish of vanilla ice cream. My mom was delighted that the staff recognized her on her birthday. We were extremely pleased that we chose Skyline for dinner. It is definitely a place that we will try again.

The entree filet and salmon were outstanding. We were celebrating our daughters birthday 🎂. The staff came up with happy birthday in chocolate written into a plate. Great touch. !

    The Skyline was great! My wife and I went there for our anniversary and we very much enjoyed the whole experience. The food was delicious and cooked perfectly and the service was excellent. It is a little more on the expensive side but worth it for how beautiful the restaurant is, how good the food is, and how competent the servers are (at least ours was).
