Fresh seafood and decent service. Food delivery can take awhile, but most customers are not in a rush being right on the water. Excellent location and reasonable prices. Will definitely come back.

Skipjacks is a friendly restaurant located right on the water. The service is great and the staff are very helpful and friendly. For dinner, we ordered lobster and chicken with mango sauce. The lobster was excellent but the chicken lacked flavor. It wasn't season seasoned or marinated - either would have helped - and the mango sauce was like mango... More

The title says it all. We loved this restaurant from the moment we walked in. Very welcoming atmosphere and great menu selection. We had tbe scallops in a tomato basil cream sauce and the crab crusted tilapia. Both were fantastic. Highly recommend you give Skip Jack's a try. We will return on our next visit to the Island.

We have been going to St. Maarten since 2005 and this is our home away from home. The people like Jimmy, make us feel right at home. Jr always serves us like family and his son is a doll. Lisa and Narden keep the drinks coming. And the food is wonderful. View is perfect. Dinner right on the water, can't... More

I had the Carribean Lobster....it litterally melts in your mouth. You get to pick out and take a picture with your lobster...lol. Everything from the food to the drinks were very good. I would go again.

So we happened upon this place because Crave was closed. We were welcomed with a smile and really enjoyed our dinner. The tuna and seafood kabob were great, but my 4lb Caribbean lobster was delicious. Basile - our waiter - was great. He truly made for a fun dining experience. Don't forget to try the key lime pie - yummy.... More

Even the rice was an adventure. The grilled Caribbean lobster was wonderfully seasoned and so tender. I had the blackened grouper with Jamaican relish, and I savored every bite. We had the Key lime pie. WOW!

This was our first visit to Skipjacks. The food and service were excellent. We had the tuna carpaccio appetizer which was one of the best appetizers I have ever had. I had the mahi which was grilled perfectly. The waitress was very attentive to our needs and the bus staff was right on top of things. I would highly recommend... More

Eating at Skipjack's was a wonderful experience! The food was very good, as was the service. We had a great table by the water--we were lucky as we hadn't made a reservation. I would definitely recommend calling ahead and reserving a table to avoid a wait, it was very busy. The host was so friendly and welcoming, and our waitress... More
