Drinks are served in very cold cans and bottles with a wrapped straw. Why? Cans and bottles are recycled across the street while dirty glasses require the use of fossil fuels to heat dishwasher.

After reading the reviews on trip advisor we easily found Skip's on maps. We drove up and we're glad that we were prepared for what we would see. This is a older motel, two-story, with Skip's on the ground level. In Saskatchewan we call this a hole in the wall place because it is just standing there and you walk... More

We have eaten at this restaurant several times and it is a favourite spot that we always eat at each summer. Great value, large piece of fish, yummy fries, and the sundae that comes with your meal is very good. You are full when you leave! It is a small place but comfortable homey atmosphere. Service can be a bit... More

We stopped here for supper while in Summerside. It came very highly recommended. But, we were disappointed by the sea food. The staff were very pleasant and friendly and it was a neat/unique place to visit & eat. Maybe we were just there on an "off" day.

A little hole in the wall, mom and pop shop that delivers in excellent food. The atmosphere is exactly what you want in a fish and chips spot. But, one very important thing was missing. With freshly cut PEI fries and your ridiculously huge piece of fish came with Kraft tartar sauce packets. WHY!? You are arguably one of the... More

We also have homemade tartar upon request. Sorry we did not tell you that. Most of our regulars still prefer the Kraft though. More
