Have eaten here many times and the food is always top notch. My husband and I both had the prime rib and it melted in our mouths. You always get soup and salad. They will bring you as much fresh hot bread that you want. It was great

This again was a recommendation from a local, and we found it to be a good pick. Be careful on the steak special as it tended to be a little tough. The soup, salad, and fresh bread were very good, as was the service!

Over priced, and food came out done wrong when sent back they brought it back and told us this is how we do it. Gave us the option of buying another one for another 40 bucks. I know once it hits the table and gets sent back they can not bring it back but did anyway. Prime rib was bland... More

After reading all of the rave reviews of this restaurant, I was actually quite disappointed. My husband and I both got the buffet. We started with shrimp cocktail which was overcooked and tough. The prime rib was good but it wasn't anything spectacular, it had good flavor but wasn't enhanced by any type of seasoning or rub. the crab legs... More

We have been going to Skips for years. I have traveled extensively in the US and overseas and can truthfully say they have the best prime rib anywhere. There servers are experienced and very good. In all the years we have gone there one time my husband thought his prime rib was a little tough and when he told Rhonda(... More

A popular spot for dinner. They serve a nice spread including salad and soup with your meals. Their specialty is Prime Rib and in my opinion, the best in the area. They have a full menu for all tastes. If your here in the summer, they have a great Farmers Market in the parking lot on Saturdays and Sundays. Service... More
