For the life of me I cannot understand why this restaurant stays in business . Yes, I do realize it has "been around forever". And I do realize that many Portlanders have positive memories of eating there in the past. I have eaten there four times in the past three years. Each time I have been increasingly less impressed with... More

Heard so much about this place and ended up very disappointed. We ordered 2 burgers and split an order of onion rings, no drinks and our bill was very pricey at 29.00. The onion rings were ok, but tasted like they came out of a frozen bag, thought they would have homemade fries and onion rings. The Mushroom Swiss burger... More

Family classic. My dad took my brother and me as kids, and we can sit in the same booths with our own boys now. Service is friendly. Shakes and malts are great (just enjoyed a fresh banana malt).

I was enjoying my usual workout at cardiac rehab when several in the group started talking about The Skyline Restaurant. I’d started driving past it on my way to the hospital and I normally don’t stop, because I have to watch my diet. I finally hit enough of my health goals and decided to go there with my cousin who...

The place is a little run down, but they make a great burger. Tater tots were perfect also. Good service, quick eats.

Be sure to take cash. There is an ATM on premises. NO cards taken. Breakfast is a must. Try the burger's, fries and Malts are really rich and delicious. Great place to take visitors and go to place for family or friends.

The burgers and fries here are great - old-fashioned - nothing fancy, but the vanilla malt was one of the best I've ever tasted. The service was great and the atmosphere is old school fun. Some tables have a nice view of the valley below Skyline Drive. Many older folks frequent this place which typically says a lot about price... More

This restaurant is a classic rural roadside joint serving up American burgers, fries, sodas and shakes since 1935. As the name implies this restaurant is located in a setting, along Skyline Boulevard, near the ridge line of the North Tualatin Mountains. To get to this location you have to drive through the surrounding hills and are a far distance from... More

We have stopped here three times now for dinner or shakes and each time have left very happy. It's a great little dinner that's out of the way and consistently serves enjoyable food. We have tried the veggie burger, black bean burger (which is fantastic), and various kids meals and shakes, and the whole family is always excited to come... More

I had heard a lot about this place; read the reviews; so maybe i was overexpecting, but i ordered a burger, and it was good...but not great...not awesome...the bun overwhelmed the burger...not a ton of burger flavor spilled past the bun and condiments. The fries were good as were the onion rings. We didn't have to wait long which is... More
