Wonderful dinner right on the waterfront. Tables was along the water. Steak and scallop special was perfect. Lots of folks getting the lobster special. You pick the one you want and they pull it out and hand it to you for a picture. Biggest lobsters I have ever scene. Service was good as was the wine menu. Host Jim was... More

If you like lobster, boy do they have lobsters....big ones! However our group decided to forgo the lobster in favor of smaller food. I had the salmon and the other three in our group had the tilapia. Out of this world! Perfectly cooked, melt in your mouth delicious! Can't wait to go back!!

This is our favorite restaurant on the island. Fabulous views, warm and welcoming service and all the food is excellent. Amazing Ahi Tuna, and the unexpected great meal is the Ribs! Make a reservation for a waterfront table, and easy parking across the street.

We came to SkipJacks for the Caribbean Lobster and it was just as good as we had heard. Our party of 6 all got a different lobster from the tank ranging from 2 lbs to 9 lbs and they are still talking about hoe good it was. They also have a great view of the harbor and the sunset. I... More

We've been coming here for years. Usually come here 3-4 x each visit to the island! The lobster tank is amazing and the grilled lobster platter is the best on the island! Jim, the host is always there to make your visit pleasant

What a great experience..friendly atmosphere all the way. Our waiter was dedicated to the job and very friendly. Great food and the choices have been explained well. Nothing seemed to be too much for them to demonstrate a nice dinner experience to us. We will be back. Wolf !!!!

My wife and I split a 3.5 pound grilled lobster and it was delicious. Our waitress was lovely and helpful. Even though it was low season, the place was packed, more than any other restaurant we visited. That told me that this was going to be great. Luckily there was a breeze coming off the bay otherwise it could have... More
