Skinner's Loft is one of the best restaurants I have ever had the pleasure to visit. The atmosphere is amazing - either in the cold weather (fireplace upstairs) or the warm weather (bistro tables on the street OR rooftop)!!! The food is excellent and the bar area is inviting and comfortable and the dining room upstairs is just beautiful. The... More

The experience, food, service and eveything that makes for a delightful evening can be found at skinner's loft in Jersey City, NJ. When in this wonderful city over looking NYC and 'The Lady' you don't have to search for a wonderful restaurant ... got straight to skinners loft.

3 people in my party had the parmesan fries as appetizer and all 3 orders were overcooked; the sauce served with the fries was delicious and took away the dry edge. The entrees were all excellent. I had the beef stew which was delicious. The other 5 members of my party were all satisfied with their entrees. The restaurant consists... More

We tried their Steak Salad; it was a disappointment ! The portion was small. The salad was inundated with fried onions from a can ! The steak itself was loaded with fat & grizzle. The room was so dark that we couldn't SEE the fat, so we ended up eating it ! I do recommend this restaurant for Sunday brunch;... More

Nice relaxing atmosphere with an urban vibe. Great food both at the bar while waiting for our friends and at the table. Friendly servers and bartenders rounded out a great evening. We'll be back!

My parents, sister and I ate at Skinner's Loft last night! Everything was perfect. We ate on the roof, which was worth the extra wait! Loved the atmosphere and the waiters were so nice. We all loved our meals and appetizers; chorizo corn dogs, lamb hot dog apps, skirt steak with potato wedge special, filet mignon, salmon, pork, Mac and... More

One of my favorite places in JC. Laid back atmosphere, friendly staff, and good food. Had the fillet mignon last time there and it was cooked perfectly. My wife's salmon was excellent as well. That was my first time having dinner there, usually we go for brunch which I highly recommend. Worth checking out.

Thank JayUlrich
