Invited a friend to meet for lunch. Skyview's was perfect! Great location close to both of our places of work, fast service, friendly service, and wonderful food. Thanks to the environment (quiet) we were able to catch up with each other's busy lives and not have to shout at each other. This also afforded us an opportunity to relax and enjoy our lunch and not feel rushed at all. A novel experience at lunch places these days. We had such a good time we did not realize how quickly the time passed and almost were late getting back to the office. :) Thank you so much for a fabulous lunch experience. We are already making plans to return soon.

The chicken fried steak is dry and chewy; soup is quite spicy. The foods are not as good as before. The waitress did not ask if I'm Tech employee, so we did not get the discount for Tech employee.

The view is wonderful. The staff is kind. It would have been helpful to get the time slot we would have liked at 11:30, especially since there were few tables taken, but 11:15 was ok. It is a pleasant place.

Skyview provides great salad and soup options, and the sides and proteins are varied and well prepared. We are always delighted to make a reservation and enjoy the views with great dessert and coffee. Thank you for the excellent service and attention to detail.

SkyView offers an unique dining experience allowing you to have the best view of Lubbock, fine dining, great service, and fair pricing all in one place. I would eat at SkyView again, and tell others to dine there as well.

Service was superb; I am somewhat handicapped and one of your employees helped me with my selections and carried them to the table for me. His service was outstanding-- and I thank you for your attention to handicapped customers and the ongoing performance of your staff.

It’s run by Tech students, so they are able to get creative with the weekly themes and menu.

My wife and I enjoyed our dinner at SkyViews. We selected the Pioneer Woman Themed Dinner and were very pleased with both the food and service. There is no doubt the students are there to make an impression and they did! We'll would highly recommend SkyViews.

Their innovative dinner series each semester provides a wonderful learning lab for students in the Restaurant, Hotel & Institutional Management program at Texas Tech. Given the constraints inherent in a class setting, they execute very well and provide an enjoyable and fresh experience for their guests. Always a pleasure.

The food and overall atmosphere are definitely the major reasons for recommending Skyview’s to friends. I rated the service as a 2/5 because the staff seemed very inexperienced and most seemed as if they didn’t care to be hospitable.

We have thought about trying Skyview's for a while but weren't sure about the cost. We finally decided to give it a try. We were seated at a table with a nice view of campus. The server and hosts were friendly and efficient. The interior decor is quite dated and cheap. I understand that it is a student restaurant but at $35 per person I was expecting something nicer and fancier. The food was excellent though. We did not order drinks or anything extra and with tax and tip our total was almost $90! The $35 per person should include a glass of wine or at least iced tea. For that cost we could have gone to a much fancier place and had a drink with dinner. If it had been $20-25 per person I would have been happy with the dinner.

We were seated almost immediately but it was 15+ minutes before we had a waitress and I had to ask before someone was assigned to our table. That being said, our waitress was very professional and efficient and the food was excellent! I enjoyed and finished every single course. I am definitely going to dine here again since it did not seem like the delay in having someone assigned to the table is the norm here. Great job Texas Tech!

Skyviews is a very pleasant “classroom” restaurant with RHM students working as staff. Food prep can be uneven but overall very good. They excel at presenting cuisine that is unavailable eksrwhere in Lubbock. The location on the 6th floor gives excellent views of the TTU campus and the heart of Lubbock neighborhood.

This was a wonderful meal. The 4-course meal was based on the food of Tom Colicchio from Top Chef and was delicious. I have had beef short ribs at 2 of Colicchio’s restaurants, and these were every bit as good. The charcuterie appetizer was varied and tasty. The tomato soup was very good, while the watermelon salad with Thai chilis and spicy dressing was superb. Good chocolate cake for dessert. Interesting and compressive wine list. Service was impeccable, with a special shout-out to TTU students Hudson and Travis.

Pleasant place to have a quiet dinner. Attentive waiter and prompt service. However that being said there were several glitches. My cocktail came after the appetizer was served and my wife's fish was undercooked which was promptly rectified. However, the blackened redfish was quite bland. Rest of the meal was quite good.
