This was the first restaurant we visited and we were not disappointed. The food and drinks were excellent, and our server was exceptional. Friendly and helpful and attentive. The views from our table had us breaking out the camera. We visited this restaurant more than once during our time in St. Maartin.

Mid-way through our vacation, we tried Skip Jack's. We were in the mood for seafood. Being from New England, we have high standards and Skip Jack's certainly met them in terms of the food. My husband ordered the whole red snapper and it was perfectly seasoned and perfectly cooked. I ordered the scallops and they were also perfectly cooked and... More

Beautiful view. Impeccable service. Cool Caribbean vibe. The food was good, but I should have ordered the lobster. Everyone in our group had fun. It's one of those place where you expect more out of the food and I would go back to give it another try.

My husband and I enjoyed dinner on the bay at Skipjack's. We had cocktails and a really tasty artichoke/crab dip appetizer. My hubby ordered a seafood platter and I ordered fish & chips. Those were both good, but not amazing. I thought overall the prices were too high for the items we ordered and the quality of those dishes. They... More

We were there just yesterday for Saturday lunch - we had a waitress at our lagoon side table as soon as we were seated. The twins of course had to go back to look at the live lobster in the tank - a ritual for them whenever we dine at Skipjacks. The waitress was very patient while they decided on... More

The food in nothing to brag about. My husband was disappointed with his chicken meal. When we left the restaurant we had to stop at another restaurant for better food that was tastier and more satisfying. I had the talapia that was not a dish to brag about.

You will not leave this place hungry. Even in the off season, this open-air restaurant sits on the harbor and is crowded...for a reason. They have live Maine and Caribbean lobsters. Get the Caribbean lobster as its a better bang for you buck and much larger than its American cousin. The staff is friendly and attentive and will keep your... More

Overall the experience was worth the cost. The lobster fettucine was excellent as were the ribs. Also the crab crusted talapia is excellent. Staff are friendly and welcoming.

The food was very good, and good service. The children's food from the children's menu was not as good as many other local restaurants, so consider ordering from the main menu.

Delicious seafood and an extensive menu. Live lobster tank is very fun. Shrimp Alfredo pasta was to die for. Great atmosphere and service.
