We've been going here summers for years. This beachside snack bar has a menu you'd expect for that, with a variety of quick eats. Remember, this is NOT a sit-down place ... it's a walk-up, order and take with you beach stand. Staff is family and friendly. Keep in mind the wide variety of customers, many vacationers that need to... More

Great food but don't dare ask for a fork or spoon for your two year old. Also purchased a bottled water the previous day and asked for a cup and lid for the little one. 25 cents please!

We've been reluctantly coming to Ardath's for years because it is the only place at Skaket Beach to buy food in the event we need something not in our cooler. Menu consists of typical, overpriced fried beach food and prepackaged ice cream. What's most notable about this place is how unhelpful and negative the management is. If you'd like an... More

Been going to Skaket for years.. always try to avoid this place. I was hoping the renovation from this year would change the people or the management, but it didn't. They are never accommodating, food takes forever to make, can't get an extra cup or tray.. even if you pay! The food is average, the service is horrible.. so rude...... More

Ardath's isn't really a restaurant -- it is a take-out place at Skaket Beach on Orleans. Their onion rings will keep you coming back and back again. Soon, you will have to have a sandwich to go,with them! Only downside to Ardath's is the revolving staff. Some are locals, some are college kids spending the summer at the beach. So... More

On the "pro" side, the menu is fairly diverse and the prices are not at all a beach rip-off. On the "con" side, the food is just ok, as you'd expect from this type of place. They seem to handle melted cheese well. For my cheeseburger, the cheese was great, but the burger itself was too well-done. My wife had... More

Ardath's is a lunch shack at Skaket beach. Well priced, they offer burgers, hot dogs, fries, ice cream. Handy place to extend a beach day without being price gorged, and the food is better than you would expect.
