This restaurant has gone downhill and up priced over the last few years. Entrees cost more and more with less and less good. Appetizer are reasonable and almost the same portions. Watch out! They include the tip and don't tell you and will actually deny it when questioned and say it is a tax. All lies. Unguarded tends to have... More

There are beautiful views of the lagoon every night which only supplement the great food. We went here on our 1st night in St Maarten. The swordfish special and crusted tilapia were so big that we had these as leftovers for a second dinner. Then later in the week we went back here again and had the snapper and the... More

In spite of a blaring-loud carnival going on across the street, when we were seated by the water the noise didn't intrude and we had a lovely view of the lagoon. Prompt, polite service and superb food. The seafood kabobs were expertly prepared, the baked potato was perfect (an item often not done well at other places), mahimahi was excellent,... More

We ate and drank at Skipjack's 3 days during our stay in St. Maarten. Our family (party of 15) had a surprise party for my mother's 73rd birthday. Food was excellent. We did not have a set menu so everything was made to order. The lobster, grouper, seared tuna, and scallops were delicious. My brother had the whole red snapper... More

Good food and good service. Our resort made reservations for us and they gave table by the water. Very nice.

This restaurant is off the main road in the Simpson Bay area of St. Martin, and it backs up to the water. Great atmosphere, but the food did not meet our expectations. The crab cakes need less breading and more crab. For the bill we paid, I would have expected better tasting food. I probably would not go back unless... More

Our family dined here for a birthday with a total of 14 people. Reservations were made prior due to us having such a large party and we also had a cake so preparations had to be made earlier. The restaurant was 100% prepared for our large party and the servers were more than accommodating to fill any requests we had.... More

Skipjack's is one of a number of restaurants on the lagoon side of Simpson Bay - this makes for terrific fresh seafood and a wonderful view. The service is attentive and the value is pretty good (for St. Martin!). My wife had the crabcakes, which were surprisingly good (we are from Maryland, so are pretty discriminating when it comes to... More

I dined here with 6 friends while in SXM. The welcome was wonderful and the buzz around the city about this place was right on point. We walked in and saw your typical Lobster tank but then right behind that was a small pond with HUGE Caribbean lobster. We go to reach in and grab the one we wanted. Mine... More
