We ate at Skipjack's the first night that we were in st-marteen and we were not disappointed. The food was very good, I took the calamari salad and my friends the lobster if i remember correctly. we were all pleased with it. The waiter was very nice and the view was just perfect.

We enjoyed great service and great food. Our large group even came back for a second dinner at Skipjacks after everyone was raving about the first visit earlier in the week. Huge portions, nice spot. The Caribbean equivalent of Red Lobster - fresh lobster tanks and all ;) There's also a fresh fish counter at the front if you're interested... More

Came highly recommended from friends so we gave it a shot. Fun place, good staff and service. Nice views. Was not impressed with the food. I ordered Blackened Snapper and it was very dry. My buddy ordered the ribs (never in a seafood restaurant). Were terrible. Another ordered Tilapia and not impressed. We enjoyed our time there but very disappointed... More

We had to return to Skip Jacks for the wonderful food. Pick out a Caribbean Lobster and have one of the best meals in St Maarten. Junior and the rest of the staff will take very good care of you. It was great to see our close friend Nartia again who has worked here for many years. Don't skip over... More

We ate sesfood dinner here and it was excellent. You can even pick out your own lobster there and the view was very nice and service was excellent.

Great food and friendly people. Nice to sit by the ocean to watch the boats and fish! Had the chicken and it was tasty. We ran into some other people and had lots of laughs with them.

Best restaurant in St. Maarten's Bar None! From the moment you arrive you feel welcome and relaxed. Casual, elegant dining right on the water. Accessible by land or sea. Delicious food that is well proportioned so come with an appetite - you won't leave hungry. Wide selection of dishes to choose from. Fresh Caribbean and Maine lobster in large tanks... More
