Have a BBQ grill? Then this is where you want to go. Don’t bother looking for a restaurant. An absolute must for those in the area of Matunuck who don’t want, or even care, of waiting in line at a restaurant to eat fresh and...More

The fish is fresh,fresh,fresh. The homemade stuffies are terrific. In nice weather, the new patio overlooking the Block Island Ferry dock is a fine place for fish and chips,though the cole slaw could use some work.

The market offers some of the freshest seafood you can buy. We have NEVER been disappointed in what we bought. I wish the market was open all year and not just for the summer. Oh well the summer is here, Hooray !!!

Shame that it only open for the summer season, great food, BYOB, and great service, love the laid back pace to sit and watch the ferries leave and come, parking is tough, but worth the wait.

This is THE place to buy the freshest fish. The variety is good -- striper, black fish, blue fish, tuna, salmon, flounder, plus great smoked fish and stuffs

If you're looking for fresh seafood to take home, don't miss this place. The lobsters were fresh and delicious, the price was right, and the fish and chips dinner was exactly the way I like it.

I can't comment on the prepared food here but we have been buying fish from Skip's for decades. Fresh fish, fair prices. After an afternoon at East Matunuck get you lobsters and steamers here the authentic clam back experience.
