We had a great table overlooking the bay that couldn't be beat. Food however was average at best especially for the price. Food was slightly over cooked with little flavor. Staff was not very attentive even though there were many waitstaff members standing around. We will probably not be trying them again.

This place is REALLY GOOD! The service was awesome! The appetizer were nice but a lot! Be aware when ordering appetizers before your main course it can fill you. We had the bruschetta, crab dip, crab cakes and wings basket all were awesome! Main course catches us a bit of guard. The serving of some were smaller than the appetizers.... More

Good food, on the water, pleasant waitstaff Skipjack's has a wonderful, but very expensive, Caribbean lobster. My friends say that the tuna is the best on the island. Skipjacks is right on Simpson Bay. It has a wonderful view of the new bridge and the yachts moored in the bay. It's a great place for megayacht watching in addition to... More

A must visit and easy to get too. Right on the Main road between the Airport and Philupsburg. Delicious food, super friendly staff and a beautiful environment. Portions are huge so come hungry! My personal recommendation is to come for a nice and special occasion or final salute to your St Maarten.

Walked into this restaurant because Lees was closed. Turned out to be a wonderful way to initiate our vacation. Waiter was attentive and kept us updated as meal progressed. Bread was complimentary, warm and delicious. Other places tend to charge. It was fun to pick our lobster from the tank. Simple but delicious preparations. We actually left with leftover ribs,...

We ate at Skip Jacks twice during our stay in St. Maarten. Excellent food and excellent service. The chef came out herself to make sure we enjoyed her cooking. The calamari salad is the best salad I have ever eaten. We would absolutely recommend Skip Jacks!

We loved Skipjack's so much we went there twice during our recent trip to St. Martin. The food was delicious both times. The manager, Jimmy, remembered us from our first visit and was very accommodating and made us feel like we were regulars by calling us by our names and coming over during dinner to make sure everything was good....
