“Breakfast was mediocre”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

This is a restaurant that is frequented by locals and am one of those locals. Recently I have found the quality of the breakfast to be slipping some. This past Sunday went with daughter & granddaughter and we all complained to each other that the food was not up to what we expect
from this restaurant. The corned beef was dry and tasteless, biscuits just fell apart so you end
up with butter & jelly everywhere as it crumbles in your hand. The grits remained great and up
too what we expect from this restaurant, management needs to do some evaluations of the food
they are serving for breakfast

4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 2, 2013 via mobile

skippers is one of our go to places for breakfast on the weekend. We are local to the Kemah area and this is an excellent mom and pop restaurant.

“Tremendous Value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

This little mom-n-pop place is a standby for us when in Kemah. Breakfast or lunch, it's always good food, and a great value. Super cheap lunch specials, including fresh seafood, are the main draw for me. The Greek food is also lovely. The place is definitely not fancy, very homey, diner feel.

“Breakfast was good!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

I went to Skipper's one time for breakfast. It was good. The server was very friendly and brought our food to our table fast. I especially liked the grits and the bacon! This place is frequented by locals, which I sometimes prefer.

“Marginal at best”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012

It was okay. Not bad but not great. We went for the biscuits and they just tasted like dough. Disappointing. I might have liked it if I was hung over and needed some grease.
