Great experience

I have been going to St. Maarten for a long time, but have never made it to Skipjacks, what a mistake on our part. The ambiance and the view of the mega yachts is awesome. I'm not a huge seafood fan but the menu had a big selection, not so much for the non seafood eaters, but still good. I... read more

Went for dinner and food was average. Service was one of the best we had. Not much for vegetarians to eat besides the side dishes.

Overall my family's dining experience at Skipjacks was very good, but some things could be improved. I have to say the service was impeccable as our waiter was very attentive to our needs, and the views over the bay and the yachts was very pretty at night. My wife enjoyed her dinner very much and our appetizers (shrimp cocktail &... More

We typically do not like to go to lunch or dinner at the same place while vacationing so we really get to experience many different places - but Skip Jack's had us coming back. We ate dinner here three times in the week that we were on the island and it was great every single time!! Fresh lobster is an... More

We ate here on the first night in SXM and the food was mediocre. When we first got there we had to wait 20-25 minutes to be seated which is fine, i understand having to wait. Once we were seated it took over an hour for us to receive our meals and the food wasn't all that. I wouldn't recommend... More

Skipjack's has one of the best wait staffs I've ever encountered. They worked together like a well-oiled machine. We were there on Heineken Regatta weekend - incredibly busy. We did not have a reservation, but then, we were there early. No problem. Great location/view, food and staff!

It's one of the restaurant's you definetely notice in Simpson Bay. I came one time and liked the atmosphere, service, but as far as I remember it is rather crowded, especially in the night time.

The food here is consistently good. the view great. You sit out on the water and enjoy. They have a giant lobster tank in the floor so you can pick your own. Everyone else loves the blackened grouper. My favorite is the lobster. I do not recommend the crab dip. They are very accommodating for children. It is fun to... More

We had a nice lunch here. Location was great, the views were very nice. Table overlooking the water. The service was a bit slow but not much difference than most of the places we visited on the island. Just so happens no one is in a rush and that is OK. Our server was very friendly and talkative which was... More
