Had heard of Skip's Restaurant for years. Glad I finally got the opportunity to eat there. Staff was super friendly & attentive. The food was amazing. I had the prime rib & crab legs, along with house made chicken noodle soup & my mother enjoyed a house salad, prime rib & lobster. The wine we chose went hand in hand... More

Prime Rib and Seafood Buffet on Friday and Saturday nights is very popular. Make sure to make a reservation! Salad bar was basically lettuce, cheese, and grape tomatoes. Not very good. The cocktail shrimp is peel and eat. They should spend the extra money and use the ready to eat version. I wouldn't care if they passed on the cost... More

Been going here for years and never disappointed I especially like their chicken livers and mashed potatoes .... Where else can you get that? My partner is fond of the prime rib which is consistently tender and flavorful . Desserts are monsterous and one can feed 4 people easily . A mainstay in harbor country

Skip's has separate bar and sports TV...Skip's used to be known as SKIP'S OTHER PLACE...Closed for a while; had been open only on weekends... Young man at Bridgman beach told us it was open when we asked about good steaks...Sunday night...both couples and families present...Ordered liquor..They definitely know how to make a drink...worth the $$..Staff young, but excellent service...

My Boyfriend and I were in the area for a family reunion on Saturday and asked the owner of the B&B, where we were staying, for a couple of suggestions for local restaurants for dinner on Friday Night and, per her suggestion, decided to give Skip's a try. When looking at their website, it suggested asking about their free shuttle... More

Love to go to Skips when we are down in New Buffalo. My husband absolutely loves the burgers and I have yet to try something I didn't like. They have a nice selection of seafood, meat, and most importantly wine. Nice environment and friendly staff.
