We visit the restaurant for the first time and if we had live closer, we would go back! The service was good, the decoration was really great and the food was nice and pleased us all. Ordered breakfast, soup, chicken and club sandwich and we were all satisfied and happy when we left the restaurant. Can recommend a visit!

This was my first time here & we will definitely go back. The young waitress was efficient & friendly. Everyone in my group enjoyed their meal & it is very reasonably priced. Cute decor, too.

A friend of mine told me that her husband never wants to eat breakfast out anywhere except Skippy's, so we had to try it as part of our attempt to eat breakfast at every single breakfast venue in Windsor before we die. Ha. Service here was prompt and friendly enough. The eggs, toast, peameal bacon and regular bacon were good.... More

This is my second time here, the food is awesome. Downfall....is the miserable old waitress. We had to ask for everything, creamer, milk, coffee refill. If they keep someone as miserable as her on staff business will for surely go down.

I drop in here every so often for breakfast, or a burger or hot sandwich with fries. Good home cooking and always a copy of the newspaper here to catch up on the news. They are more f an early day place for breakfast and lunch. Close by 3pm or so...

Skippy's Restaurant has great food I'll give it that but when it comes to customer service, it was by far the worst experience I have ever had eating out. From the second we walked in, the older waitress/MANAGER spoke to us rudely directing us to another table from where we originally had wanted to sit. Then, when she made the... More
