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.

You can't go wrong at Skips! Skips is a great place to gather with our family for a traditional steak or prime rib dinner. The buffet is always good, always fresh, and has something for everyone. The Prime Rib is so good, and the potato casserole is so yum. They also have mussels on the buffet which they do just... More
