Description: Things you need to know before you get here,,, - Don't wait for a maitre D in a 3 pc suit to seat you. Seat yourself - Don't ask for ice. 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. Don't ask for a glass of ice water with a lemon either. Cold bottled water is $1.00 - There are no germ infested re used menus at the table. The menu is on the wall. - If the waiter seems to be ignoring you its because he didn't notice you as a new customer. Don't sit there and stew about it. Let him know you would like to order.

This is a restaurant for good value and fresh fish & chips. It has the atmosphere of a seaside restaurant. and the flavours to go with it. The owner is quiet but has a friendly way with all his customers/clients.

Spent a week in PEI in August 2014. Wanted to find a unique to PEI fish and chips restaurant. Tried Skip's based on the reviews on Trip Adviser. It did not disappoint! As others have stated the exterior was not fancy - I would never think to stop here if I drove by. But the place inside was cute, service... More

Rated number three (3) in restaurants in Summerside but I would not agree! After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we were ready for the unimpressive exterior but which leads to a nicer interior. I would say the decor is seventies but in good shape. The restaurant was half full when we arrived. We were pleasantly greeted by the owner/waiter. Fairly soon... More

Hey Dopey, You were comparing the look of your breaded pan fried fish to that of deep fried battered fish at other tables. Sounds like you didn't know what you ordered. I made it very clear that the pan fried version takes longer at which point you could have mentioned your time crunch - instead of here in this nonsensical... More

If you’re in the mood for really good fish & chips then this is the place in Summerside. The portion is very generous and the size of the fish is quite big. Yes, the décor is incredibly dated (old record album jackets adorn the walls and old music softly plays in the background), but this isn’t likely to change anytime... More

When you come on the island, you gotta try their fish&chip. I agree that this is the best fish&chip that I ever had! It is a comfortable little place of a small town feel. You won't leave hungry as you get this huge piece of fish with their home-style fries left with their peel. I enjoy finger food as not... More

I'm from Vancouver and we get great fish and chips there. This was as good as what I can get back home in Steveston. The fish is huge, the chips are great as expected in PEI, the gravy and cheese curds added on for poutine made it awesome. However while the food gets 5 stars, do not expect great service.... More

I come a long way to visit Skip's every summer. No where in my travels have I tasted better fish (greasless), and chips, than right there is Summerside. I have advised many a person to go to Skips in Summerside, and every one of them thanked me for the tip. The place is known for its friendliness on the island.... More

A small local fish & chip place that was well worth going to. The 1 Piece Fish & chip special was excellent and very filling, and it came with a sundae for dessert. It was a large piece of deep fried fish in a golden crisp batter. The fries were homemade and came in all sizes (long, short, skinny &... More
