Around noon o’clock today, we headed to the Skyline Diner in Rensselaer, NY. It was only about half full, which was nice for us but not for them. We got the lunch menu, but after looking it over and realizing we wanted breakfast, we asked for the breakfast menu. We both ordered omelets, and while waiting, we checked out the decor of the place. Skyline has a unifying theme — every single piece of art or wall decoration has a skyline in it. From the framed vintage album covers to the random men’s tie to the framed photos, every single thing had a skyline.
The countertops were nice, and had ample seating for patrons. The desserts were probably not baked on premises, and the pastries were displayed in a plastic display case on the counter (see Figure 2.1).
We got waters and a coffee; the water was a 3 and the coffee was a 2, since it was watery and had a strong burnt taste.
We both got omelets, and they were pretty good, along with the rest of the meal. Food was a 3 out of 5. Our waitress was incredibly attentive and very friendly, so we’ve rated the service a 5 out of 5!
Overall dinerness was going to be a 3 out of 5, but then the check was a scribbled mess from a pad of paper, which definitely upped the dinerness rating a full point. I don’t think we’ve received a handwritten check from any place yet, so we’re bumping the dinerness rating a full point. Dinerness at the Skyline Diner is a 4 out of 5.
Our experience at the Skyline was decent, but of all the diners we’ve been to thus far, it’s not super high on the awesome list. Still, a great place to stop by if you’re in the area and are craving some good diner food for a great price.
