    Very unique and eye friendly diner. Full bar and the decor is contemporary while still keeping "diner style". Try the Greek Burger. It's like a mix burger / gyro.

    Maybe the best diner I've ever been to (if you can even call it that) in a state full of great diners. Go for brunch and get the Maryland Benedict. Mobile liquor cart is an added bonus.

    I <3 coming here for Sunday Brunch. The staff is knowledgable and they strike a nice balance between classy and fun. You can get a little dressed up or wear shorts. It's all good.

    Very modern and clean diner. The music is great and all the waitresses and waiters are super friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a diner to try, this place is a must.

    Lobster Mac N Cheese is not to be missed. The burgers are so good they do not require mayo or ketchup! Ask for the fries well done. They are thick and are somewhat undercooked otherwise.

    If you're looking for a regular NJ diner, this isn't the place to go. They offer wonderful food, but I would compare it to bistro food. One side is the menu and the flip side is all from the bar.

    Love this place! Very eclectic decor, retro meets futuristic! Menu is extensive and uniquely international! Not your normal expectation for a diner! Amazing fresh made raisin bread!

    A cut above a typical diner . Great food , drinks can be short from time to time. A complaint to management always remedies the problem. Both staff and management are fabulous.

    this place really stands out! you don't expect a modern-looking diner and martini bar on a street with a bunch of motels and truck stops. Still, it is a great place to have a few drinks!

    Vietnamese salmon sandwich was a pretty good bahn mi. Buttermilk pancakes were de-lish. Don't stop asking for water cause they won't bring it to you out of the goodness of their hearts

    Skylark Salad is my favorite with the grilled salmon which is always grilled to perfection! Never dried out. Then Their burgers are the best around.

    If they have the lobster mac and cheese, DO NOT pass it up. It is sensational with truffle-infused breadcrumbs on top and bits of sweet lobster. Definitely entree-sized!

    Take note what it says at the bottom of the menu: "If you don't see it, just ask." You can order off the menu. Take advantage.

    Not good if you want to skip red meat or you're a vegetarian. I mean, who sells veggie burger without a patty in it. They should call it a veggie sandwich in burger buns. Did not like it at all :(
