Skip's was recommend to us by the folks at our bed and breakfast and we were not disappointed. The fish pieces were huge and they were delicious as were the fries. The owner was friendly and helpful. totally worth the stop!

This is a first rate restaurant, very warm and inviting, with the best fish and chips my family has had. I would highly recommend all visitors to stop buy and experience this great place.

Fish and chips were excellent with very good service. Lots of locals were present. Not a fancy place but appears really authentic.

Stopped in mid Saturday afternoon. Place was not busy so greeted and seated right away. My wife chose the day's special - fish and chips, can of pop and a sundae for $12.95. Hard to beat. She was more than satisfied with her choice. My clam strips were tasty, not greasy at all and the chips were home made and... More

We have heard about this place many times so finally decided to try them out this past week. When you drive by this place, it certainly will not catch your eye as a good place to eat. Once inside, it's quite small but very clean. Had to wait for a table. Our waiter, who is also at the cash was... More

Unapealing location; unimpressive furnishings and decor---but terrific fish and chips. Fish perfect, French fries delicious

I came here with my family this past week with one order in mind - the one piece fish and chips! We all ordered the same thing, and we were not disappointed. The picture featured on Trip Advisor of the Fish is accurate (i.e., nice big piece). The french fries were delicious, and I added a side of gravy, which... More

Just look at the photos - that's what you're going to get and it tastes every bit as good as it looks. Now imagine yourself biting into that crispy fried battered, flakey fish. The PEI potatoes burst and then melt in your mouth as you find yourself reaching a place of nirvana as you bathe in the glory that is... More

This is a small diner that has the best fish and chips in town. The menu is dominated with fish other items on the menu are limited. This is not a fancy restaurant and it has limited parking. If you are staying locally take out is available and it is worth the extra effort

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.
