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.

there is an eat in area but take away is better. The boardwalk is just minutes away so do take it there. A large order is way more than enough for two people.

The pieces of fish are big and they're cooked just right. My favorite is the seafood platter. They close early; that's my only complaint.

I've had a lot of fish 'n' chips, but this was the absolute best. Great value, great portion size, tasted fresh, cooked perfectly, and all in a great little authentic location. Highly recommend and make sure to find this out of the way restaurant - take your meal to go or eat in.

I am from PEI and have traveled all over the Island sampling fish and chips. Skip's is by far the best the Island has to offer. The product is consistent time and time again. 2 People can eat for under 25 bucks. You get your to die for fish, not just a little piece, the whole fillet, your drink, which... More

If you are looking for authentic fish n chips, this is the place to go! If you are looking for any sort of variety in menu, or a healthy options, or basically anything other than fish n chips or burgers, you will not find those here! Great batter on the fish, and portions are large and satisfying. Had a nice... More

We ordered a deep sea fish platter to share. When we were there there is only one server, it took him awhile to clean our table. The platter comes with a huge battered fish, clam strips, scallops and fries. the portion is huge, so u won't walk out hungry!

Nothing about the place is fancy .... the location is hard to spot .... the restaurant is clean and orderly .... we had take out ... the chips were absolutely perfect and the breading on the fish was not too thick and not too thin.

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.
