SkipJack’s is my number one pick for casual dining in St. Maarten. The atmosphere is relaxing and the food is consistently good. Try the Tuna Carpaccio and Shrimp Creole!

Even though nestled between several good Restaurants Skipjack's stands out by far. As soon as you enter you are greeted by a warm Host and a live lobster tank featuring Caribbean spiny and Maine lobsters, which makes your mouth water at the level of freshness. We opted for a closer view of the Lagoon and munched on tasty pressed french... More

Our party of four had lunch at Skipjacks last week. We enjoyed it so much that we went back three nights later for dinner. I had yellowfin tuna that was fresh and delicious. Our waiter was friendly and knowledgeable. The host is welcoming and inviting and the views of the water are incredible. I highly recommend Skipjacks for lunch or... More

Stopped here our first night as we got in late, we're tired and not ambitious. Host seemed disinterested - not a good start. Things perked up with our waiter Basil. Dinner and a show! He was helpful, attentive and enthusiastic. We had an appetizer of coconut shrimp which were excellent. I had shrimp linguini in a garlic cream sauce -... More

We've been to this place every time we visit St. Maarten. You can always count on a consistently great meal. The fish is always fresh, the view of the mega yachts in the harbor is great, and the service is friendly.

We were a party of four and happened upon Skipjack's as we were driving by and saw this sign "Best Seafood Restaurant in St. Maarten" so we decided to check it out. It did not take long to see why they had the title. The service was great and quick, food was excellent and the view of the yachts at... More

We've always enjoyed Skipjack's as a lunch destination. At lunch, the parking is easy, the restaurant is not crowded, and the views of the harbor are fantastic. Great seafood and cocktails served at a water-side table in St.Maarten. What could be better?

Tried to go elsewhere but they were closed. Decided to go to skipjacks simply because it was convenient and was very happy! Carla was our waitress and was fantastic. The Caribbean lobster was delicious and there's no reason to order anything else! Overall an excellent dinning experience.

We had the kids spaghetti, lobster, and soup. All were tasty but with drinks were about 100$ Make sure to make a reservation or call ahead to get the... More

We went to SkipJacks for dinner and were pleased we did. We started with drinks that were great, no skimping on the rum here! We ordered the Mahi filet and the tilapia with crab. The tilapia was fantastic, the Mahi was good. Service was good even with a large party next to us. We will definitely be back.
