Description: 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.

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. You could still see pieces of fish here and there through the coating ... the... More

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.

Spent a week in PEI in August 2014. Wanted to find a unique to PEI fish and chips restaurant. Tried Skip's based on the reviews on Trip Adviser. It did not disappoint! As others have stated the exterior was not fancy - I would never think to stop here if I drove by. But the place inside was cute, service... More

Rated number three (3) in restaurants in Summerside but I would not agree! After reading Trip Advisor reviews, we were ready for the unimpressive exterior but which leads to a nicer interior. I would say the decor is seventies but in good shape. The restaurant was half full when we arrived. We were pleasantly greeted by the owner/waiter. Fairly soon... More

Hey Dopey, You were comparing the look of your breaded pan fried fish to that of deep fried battered fish at other tables. Sounds like you didn't know what you ordered. I made it very clear that the pan fried version takes longer at which point you could have mentioned your time crunch - instead of here in this nonsensical... More

If you’re in the mood for really good fish & chips then this is the place in Summerside. The portion is very generous and the size of the fish is quite big. Yes, the décor is incredibly dated (old record album jackets adorn the walls and old music softly plays in the background), but this isn’t likely to change anytime... More
