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.

Great Fish and Chips

We love Skips Fish and Chips as it is the best fish chips on the island. We have to been to several fish and chip restaurant in Charlottetown, Georgetown, Montague etc. and Skips still beats them all hands down. Doesn't look like much from the outside but the food and service is great.

So good. When we first moved here to Summerside, we asked the locals where the best fish and chips in town could be found and they all said Skip's. You know it's good when it is unanimous! The portions are very generous, and so yummy! It's perfectly breaded fish, not too thin, not too thick and not too greasy! Definitely... More

Skip's dishes up a more than generous portion of the best tasting fish & chips you'll find anywhere. Home made batter, hand dipped, home cut fries. Yummers! And to top it off hot brewed coffee that is divine. You can have your fish pan fried as well without batter. I usually order the two piece dinner and split it. Yep... More

Skips fish and chips is probably the best meal we've had in a long time. Try each time we are in Summerside to dine here. Don't let the outer space influence you. Clean and friendly.

I'm a local- and I am so happy that I am. Myself and my entire family have NEVER had better fish n chips (and we have tried fish n chips at countless places). The owner can be a bit full of himself and come off as rude, but seriously, the food is so good that I don't care, and as... More

This was our first visit to Skip's Fish and Chips despite the fact that we had heard rave reviews. Don't let the exterior fool you; this restaurant is immaculately clean and very welcoming. I am not very fond of fish but my daughter and granddaughter are and we all agreed that this was the best fish we had ever eaten.... More

Skip's is the place to go for large portions of reasonably priced hand dipped fish and freshly cut fries. Mmmm. One of our area's gems.

My husband and I stopped in at Skip's on our way to Cavendish, PEI. We'd heard great things and wanted to try it out. The place looks like a dive from the outside - but is the type of place you dream of finding while travelling - a place where the food is great, and the locals frequent it. You... More

We came here, visiting from southern ontario, and had a great meal. Excellant fish and chips, though scallops a good bet to. Prompt service. And the value was truly amazing
