A competent bar (good martinis) and a delicious Sunday lunch menu. On pleasant days, be sure to request patio seating.

See my review of the Skyline Lodge. the service was good, food was good, our view (table) looking out the bay area w/balcony was wonderful, but it's not a modern restaurant at all... stuck in the 60s but that's what makes it unique!

It's hard finding a one-night-stay in the Highlands, but we decided to try Skyline Lodge, even with mixed reviews. It certainly had outdated architecture; however, there was a clean coat of paint and it had well maintained out dated architecture ... we could live with...More
