“Still Needs Work..”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 October 2012

Was there in July and August a few times. Wanted to sit on the deck - no one to direct us there. Found our way out there, and after a while, had to go find someone to take our order. Drinks are fabulous. Sweet Potato Fries are wonderful. Didn't care for the crab cakes or nachos. Asked for a seafood dish, but it aas taken off the menu. Bartenders make the drinks great though! Could use some more skill in the kitchen and some more variety on the menu. Seems like there's enough on there, but it was tough choosing because nothing seemed to jump out for us to try.

“Get it together a bit more and it will be great!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 May 2012

The drinks were good, once you got them, which in our case was about 25 minutes because it was too crowded and understaffed. The food is ok, but they were out of a few of things I really wanted. The deck is awesome and with the live music that they frequently have, I think it will be better but only if there is enough staff to cover the crowd. It's new, and compared to a few new places that have opened in Newark lately that are absolutely horrible and will not be around long, and going against places like Tylers, McGlynns and Timothy's, I think this place can be really great. Cut down on wait times, have enough of the items listed on the menu, and Skyline will be awesome!

“Beautiful atmosphere”

Drinks were good, the service awesome and the ambiance was great. I can't wait until the deck opens! The food was just OK, but we'll definitely be back for the drinks and atmosphere.

“Stick to the bar”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 February 2012

Drink prices good, The certainly have a MAJOR problem in the kitchen. Stick to drinks at the bar!
We ordered an appetizer and they ran out of the clams.
Ordered another app and it was burnt, dry and the dipping sauce was a teaspoon, I asked for more and she brought me a 1/2 of a teaspoon and said, "they have to make more". I never did get anymore.
Ordered a sandwich, but they were out of that (Salmon burger), they did have a Salmon patty as an entree, but the waitress never offered a substitute. Ordered a chicken sandwich, that was burnt, as well.
The place was packed and very loud!
Service was poor, the waitress still had the clams (which we never got) still on the bill.

“This place will be great if they get their act together.”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 January 2012

We were excited to visit Skyline Grill and were pleased to find a nice crowd there. The drink and menu prices are reasonable. Unfortunately there are problems in the kitchen. We ordered some clams and I think they had to go clamming to get them. Took about 40 minutes or longer before they finally came out. And when they did, there were 18 - not the two dozen it says on the menu, but they were tasty. Meanwhile I had some soup which was ok. And later a caesar salad which I won't order again (not sure how you can mess up a caesar, but it just wasn't that good). My husband had a london broil? sandwich and it was overcooked. Bartenders were great and very apologetic. This place is spacious and will be a great place to hang out and get a bite to eat, but they'll need to fix their issues or people won't return. I sincerely hope they work it out.
