Just enjoyed a delicious dinner at Skip's. I had the prime rib sandwiches, my husband had the liver, my MIL had the pasta, and my aunt had the steak burger. No complaints whatsoever. In fact, the prime rib was the best I ever had. And the service was terrific. When we noticed we were the only ones left in the... More

We had always wanted to try this restaurant but had only been up this way when it was not open. While the decor was a little dated we received a warm welcome and our server was very nice and responded patiently to our questions. I suspect she has been on staff for awhile as she was a bit more mature... More

I took my husband there for his birthday. Made reservations for a Saturday evening for 5:30. We were seated immediately. After looking at menus, we were asked to move to a different table as the table they sat us at was reserved. They comped us a drink for our trouble of moving. We ordered two 11 oz filets. When our...

We never like to read or hear that our customers are disappointed, as was indicated in this review. With that said, I was the woman referred to in this review who visited their table. A very nice couple, indeed, however, they never indicated their steaks were bland when asked if they were enjoying their dinners, rather they said they were... More

I have great memories of awesome food at Skip's, so I invited my mom there for Mother's day. I had read online the regular prime rib and seafood buffet had chicken, ham, vegetables, etc. Boy where we disappointed!! First, let me say, we did have great service. I wish I could remember her name, so I could write it, but... More

"Major Disappointment" is a phrase we NEVER want to read or hear! Our apologies to these patrons who left our establishment unhappy. We served more than 500 people on Mothers Day, offering customers the option of buffet or menu. Our staff was working very hard to keep up with the demand of buffet items on two identical buffets in two... More

Friday night, decided to order the Prime Rib buffet at 31.95, as all the dishes on the menu were quite pricey....Not a great value, lots of fried items. Prime rib was decent. Service was nice and attentive. Atmosphere is odd....poor lighting, not particularly cozy. Don't know how else to describe it. Won't go back, lots of other places to try.

We had an amazing meal! Highly recommend Skip's Koolaid. ;) Steak was awesome, scallops good but small. Huge meal for a great price! Only downfall is I think the building is old and family room needs updated. I'm allergic to mold and instantly was congested when I entered and during our meal. It took me an hour after we left...

What an awesome review of our food and service! These are the reviews we strive to receive. We are a bit concerned, however, about the mold comment. Our restaurant is in an old building, yes, but we are inspected by the state four times a year, and mold has never been an issue, nor has it ever been discovered. We... More

Went there with colleagues but not for a business dinner. For them it was the first time while I have been there several times. Skip's is famous for the prime rib and you must have it because is really good. The rest of the menu is really not that important, even though I must admit that this time I had... More

Stopped after a long day of work to have a bite to eat and a beer with my wife. The burgers are to die for, the cheesy potatoes are out of this world and the beer was refreshing. This is a great place to eat, drink, and meet up with friends. The prime rib is very tasty and they serve... More
