If you find yourself in Summerside PEI don't pass up an opportunity to eat at Skip's Fish N Chips... It was the best fish n'chips I had while visiting the east coast. Fish was light and crispy, not greasy at all and the local cavendish French fries are a delicious side to the fish. You won't be disappointed, trust me!!!

I love a really good fish and chips and I went to Skip's more times than I can count because his fish and his chips are delicious. Light and crisp batter, a generous one piece and home made, fresh cut PEI fries. Vinegar, salt, ketchup and his homemade tartar sauce are all you need. Plus it's clean and friendly as... More

We've been eating here once a year for about 6-7 years now. Needless to say our expectations are (maybe a little too) high that we're going to get some of the best fish and chips ever. This time unfortunately our meal was a big miss. We got several orders of fish and chips and as a whole the fish was... More

When phoning in an order for takeout it is important to A) pick it up as soon as its ready B) eat it asap before it gets dried out and cold. Perhaps your family could eat in next year? Hopefully we can live up to your previous reviews on your next visit. Thanks for your patronage. More

Skip's is a very popular dining location, and always well attended. Portion size is excellent, and the quality of food generally good. Service can be a little slow, due to the large number of diners, and the restaurant itself is uncomplicated (or honest, depending on your perspective), so don't expect The Ritz.

If you happen to be in Summerside Skips is a really cool local spot that's a little off the beaten path. Everyone who lives in Summerside seems to know it and this is for good reason. It's a charming family-fun spot with a killer selection of fried seafood. To be succinct, they bring fish and chips to a new level.... More

The place looks like a dump from outside, and is nowhere near the tourist area. Inside, it is non descript, just plain and simple, as good diners should be. The music is J Cash. The waiter is slow. The food is delicious. Going again soon.

Description
Things you need to know before you get here,,, - Don't wait for a maitre D in a 3 pc suit to seat you. Seat yourself - Don't ask for ice. Drinks are served in very cold cans and bottles with a wrapped straw. Why? Cans and bottles are recycled across the street while dirty glasses require the use of fossil fuels to heat dishwasher. Don't ask for a glass of ice water with a lemon either. Cold bottled water is $1.00 - There are no germ infested re used menus at the table. The menu is on the wall. - If the waiter seems to be ignoring you its because he didn't notice you as a new customer. Don't sit there and stew about it. Let him know you would like to order.
