very good dinner

My girlfriend and I had dinner here one night. I had Whole Red Snapper and she had Mahi-mahi. Both plates were very good. I would recommend skip jacks to anyone.

We went there our first night on the island and could not have been happier. Great water views, excellent service and delicious food! We shared ribs and salad and they were yummy! Had key lime pie for dessert!

If you're into experiencing new cuisines and cutting edge food, this place is not for you. The menu is very safe and traditional. That being said, the food was cooked well, the restaurant was clean, and the service was good. Honestly, it felt like a chain style restaurant back home. I'm sure to some people, that's a plus. To me,... More

We had so much great food on the island I gained 9 pounds. No kidding. SkipJacks is one of the amazing places. The Mahi, shrim or lobster. Can't go wrong. The view is great.

The location is right on the lagoon with wonderful views. The food was excellent, the drinks potent, and the service was great. I had the Yellow fin Tuna and it was delicious.

Great place to eat. On the water, big place. We buy fresh seafood and take home to our villa to grill. Right on the main drag in Simpson Bay.

We were seated by the window with an enjoyable view. The seafood was delicious. We were very hungry and asked for a second basket of bread and butter before the dinner. The server was very friendly. In St. Maarten, the servers pool their tips and the tips are at 15%.

While we only had drinks and some appetizers, we found the service somewhat lacking. The waiter acted as if his cat just died. The appetizers seemed a little pricey. But the view was nice.

Good food, but really overpriced. Don't know why we come back every year (this was definitely our last time). This place caters to the American tourist with ambiance and food that could just as well be the Jersey shore, except the tab is at least 25% higher. The manager was quite gracius but the indifference of the waiter hardly helped... More
