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.

Fantastic all round! Very friendly service, best battered fish ever, a huge portion with chips and coleslaw and a sundae .... we also tried the clams because we were curious and hadn't had them before. Everything was delicious and I finished it all in a what I can only describe as a fit of self-indulgent decadence.

We (my husband and I with our four children) were over from Halifax and wanted to go to a nice local spot for seafood. Stood at the door by the "wait to be seated" sign for a long time without being acknowledged. We were the only ones at the door, no line. Wait staff rushed by several times but didn't... More

Skip's was recommended to us by Spurgeon at the Visitors Centre. Absolutely the best fish we had on the Island. The special is an excellent value - big piece of haddock, loads of chips, pop and a sundae! Friendly service, great atmosphere....it's tucked away in a building with a laundromat! Worth the hunt.

Legen...wait for it...DAIRY! That's not a typo but a reference to the awesome $12.95 special served at Skip's that includes a sundae for dessert. The special is a huge piece of lightly battered haddock, perfectly fried & served with home fries that was amazing but on top they throw in a soft drink & a sundae too! I had the... More

It's a little out of the way but worth finding! Had the excellent-value "1 piece fish & chips" which was huge! It was very tasty buy we couldn't finish everything on our plates. Our very picky son was really happy with his chicken strips as well. Service in this cute little place was excellent and we felt right at home.

Absolutely the best fish n chips we've had in a long time. Did takeout and ate nearby on the boardwalk enjoying the view. Large portion sizes and very reasonable prices. Almost never usually finish all the fries when we have fish n chips - well, there wasn't a crumb to be left this time. Didn't get that usual greasy "ugh"... More

Waited an hour for our meal, and were ignored by staff. Fish was nice but fries tiny little hard scraps.....inedible. Would not return for this reason.

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
