The title pretty much says it all. We arrived 3 minutes to 8:00 which is when they open. The hostess/waitress unlocked the door at 8 and walked away. She did not open the door for us and greet us. Service remained subpar but the food was good. The decor is nice.

Fish and chips were awesome, the dill tartar sauce is to die for. Our waitress took a few minutes to talk to us and tell us about the town. Very nice.

Service Was Quick And Not Busy At All. Customer Service Needs To Be Better And Maybe Try Checking On Customers From Time To Time. I'd Def Try Somewhere Else Next Time We're Down There.

Home cooking was pretty good. The portions were generous. The coffee was very good. A little too much pepper Fr my taste, however my sister the pepper queen loved it. They have Pepper Plant hot sauce available, which is always a plus. The patio was relaxing I think they should get at least one large table to accommodate families like... More

After cruising the coast of California and spending $30 a person on breakfasts and $5 for a cup of folgers coffee, It was so nice to find Skippers. Nice big breakfast that included a mound of bacon, great coffee, great view of the bay, and really nice staff. We also enjoyed talking to all the locals who seem to start... More

Food was awful & so was the service. Worse clam chowder I've ever had. The fish was so greasy I couldn't eat. Don't waste your time.

So I did. Went skeptically, because last year I had the worst piece of pie I have ever had right here! While I was impressed with the price on fish and chips, I was NOT impressed with being served Tilapia deep fried. They had some other white fish last year, but as it is no longer available, it is Tilapia... More

We stopped in on our way home. Service was great. ! The waitress was so friendly and attentive! I ordered the Bacon Double Cheeseburger. It was huge and had two onion rings on it. I couldnt finish it. Had to take it home. My wife ordered a salad and it was a really big salad and she also had to... More

If you are looking for a reasonably priced, old-fashioned, down home, hot, hearty breakfast this is the place to come. Prepare to loosen your belt!
