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

This place had good reviews, so we decided to try it. It is a small place, on a back street in a rundown shopping center. We got the idea it wasn’t a friendly place, when we saw the crude sign on the door that said they didn’t serve tap water – you had to buy bottled water. The inside is... More

I was at the next table the evening that a previous reviewer claims to have had greasy burnt bits of refried fries among her long fries. After devouring a two piece fish n chip she showed the very busy owner the small bits of "crispies" left over on her plate that she had to painstakingly sort herself. She was very... More

Skip's is definitely a fish shack, there are a couple of other options but people go there for the fish. Don't worry about there only being a one piece option because one piece is plenty. You get a huge piece of really great fish and lots of excellent fries, seriously the fries are some of the best I've had and... More

We ordered the special.. a huge plate of fish and chips arrived in no time. And it was delicious! PEI potatoes make the best chips ever. The plate could easily be shared. The special comes with a canned soda and an ice cream sundae for dessert. They play classic country music in there; we had a sing along while we... More

Sorry to put a damper on things but this is our honest opinion. We had been looking forward to this visit because of all the hype on tripadvisor We sat for a long time waiting for someone to acknowledge us in this extremely unusual eatery. When they did we ordered fish and chips as this appears to be all they... More

Again as I told you, we cannot waive your bill based on your preference for full sized fries only. More

Wonderful meal. The fish was light and tasty. My wife is not a fish fan but loved the meal. We had the special. Sundaes were great too. Best Fish and Chips meal. Kids are not huge fish fans either and the plated were all clean when we were done. Delicious.

Me and my girl friend had the special and when you see they only have a one piece option where as most places have at least two it is a little worrysome. But that one piece is deffinatly big enough tho a little on the greesey side but the fries were great.
