A good find

We were the first customers for dinner one night, so we had a little wait for the kitchen to be ready but it was OK as we had a great view! Once the food came we were very happy, it was delicious!!!!!! Our waiter was very attentive and def made us feel welcome!

The grouper was amazing, unfortunately the attitude of the waiter and the maitre de left a lot to be desired. If it weren't for a backup waiter or bus person the meal would have been a total disaster. They were not overcrowed and there is just no excuse for rudeness (we area pretty easy going couple) This was our first... More

Ordered lobster, charged as same weight for both which was not what he weighed them at, hate dishonest people! Especially when we paid 75.00 for each one. Service was slow.

We recently spent three weeks in St. Maarten, eating at Skipjack's twice during that time. On both occasions, I ordered Grouper, but I requested that it be cooked differently each time. Both presentations were excellent. Add salad, baked potato and/or rice, and it was more that I could eat. We were accompanied by two other couples each time, and all... More

The freshest of seafood is matched by idyllic waterside dining at this St. Maarten icon. Extensive menu to accommodate a broad all tastes with uncharacteristically attentive (for the Caribbean) service.

Stopped here for supper after flying in for a weeks vacation. Stunning harbor view! Very fresh seafood which was well prepared. The best Caribbean lobster I've had yet (grilled).I would not recomment the crab cakes, they had a lot of breading. The service was very relaxed, it would be poor by North American standards but acceptable in the Caribbean. Overall... More

The bay view is beautiful and the fish fresh and well prepared. Their crab cake appetizer can satisfy two.
