The food and service were outstanding! However, the modern 90’s hits playing in the background cheapened the experience. We would have preferred a more upscale music ambiance. Something like modern jazz or house music. Overall, a wonderful place to eat and enjoy special celebrations

Great atmosphere, great service, great drinks. Menu limited. Wished Pizza would come back and that there were more "sharing" type appetizers on the menu.

Although my steak was overcooked, the meal was still absolutely delicious. It was chilly outside, so it was perfect to have inside seating but still see part of the skyline through the plastic covering around the patio, then take photos there before leaving. It was very loud but still a great time. The staff took extra care to make sure there was no dairy in my food since I have an allergy. We would definitely go again for another special occasion. Make sure to order a delicious glass of wine or beer to pair with your meal, as well. A very fun date night!

The crab cake and mahi-mahi were good. Also enjoyed the Brie appetizer. It was a bit loud- I would recommend getting a table outside if you can

The hostess that answered the phone was extremely rude when I had told her I had a reservation but wanted to be outside. The “outdoor” area was closed in so it wasn’t technically “outdoor” and the menu downgraded which was the absolute biggest disappointment! The amount of money I paid for the food for me to still be hungry afterwards because the entree was small so absurd.

My wife were visiting from out of town and thought we’d give Skyline a try. It was outstanding! Food was excellent! Wine was great! Staff was very accommodating and even lit the outside heaters for us so we could stay warm. And our server, Brian, was attentive and extremely nice. I highly recommend giving them a try!

What a wonderful spot! Came here on business and was not really expecting a lot - very surprised at the food quality (limited menu but that is okay). So good that we returned the following night and had (mostly) the same meal - just as good the second night! Staff were super nice and helpful. Food quality is way better than you expect from a hotel restaurant.

The place had multiple people who were not dressed appropriately for a place like this. They need to introduce dress code. No “wife beaters”, no saggy pants, at least a short sleeve on a shirt, etc.
Also: the air was blowing from vents and from the incredibly fast spinning fan way too strong.

We had a very nice dinner at the Skyline restaurant. Our server was very nice and attentive. I had the blackened Mahi Mahi - it was exceptionally good! My wife had the chef salad and she was also extremely pleased. We each drank a the local lager beer which was also very good. All in all, a nice evening dinner.

Servers not masked (nor any guests). Food is ok, better to go for drinks and enjoy the view, and then go to one of the other nearby restaurants if you want a full dinner.
