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

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
