We've frequented this small family owner restaurant many times but have never written a review. It's a little hidden in a strip shopping area. We had two side salads (pretty typical of most restaurants and also ordered the Greek pizza. The pizza was a very...good thin crust and was very tasty without being too heavy. On our prior visit I had their steak philly...wow that was good! Very tender sirloin cut, grilled onions and delicious cheese (forgot what type)...and it wasn't overdone with the cheese. No doubt we'll be back again.More

We live close to Skimo's, and it is one of our go-to places for dinner. On average, we have dinner at Skimo's once a week. Food and service are both very good or excellent. Servers are wearing masks. Our favorites are the chicken and steak...philly sandwiches and fries. We really like their fries. Uncle Buck's pizza is our other favorite. The pork chop is also very good and the pasta dishes I have tried are good but not my favorite meals here. Every once in a while we have the spinach artichoke dip, which is also very good. I recommend you give Skimo's a try. And for those who had a not so great experience in the past, give it another try sometime.More

Good food, great service. I met a couple of friends for lunch. Small family owned restaurant. Great service and good lunch. The mashed potatoes are amazing. They are made from real potatoes roasted in a brick oven. I will be coming back.

We have tried (since inception) to like this place. The menu never changes, the food is mediocre and the service can be great or terrible depending. The owner can be rude at any point. Not worth it. We are DONE trying to support this local...business. We won't give our money to rude owners who don't care. And we have had a lot of bad food here. Finally, nobody was wearing any masks, we were not checked and they were using old menus. NO Covid safety here!More

I can’t say enough good things about this place. The food is amazing, all of it. But my favorites are the brick oven pizzas. The service is impeccable, staff is friendly, and the restaurant and bathrooms are spotless. If you haven’t been to Skimo’s you...should definitely give it a try. Also, added bonus, skimos has a patio if you don’t like being cooped up inside while enjoying dinner and/or cocktails.More

Just moved to the area We have stopped in at this local restaurant down the street on Saturday evening. Super surprised to walk in on a Saturday evening at 6:30 pm and have almost nobody here. Bar area was totally empty with only one booth...filled. We decided to sit at bar area. It quickly became apparent why it was so quiet. HORRIBLE service. Extremely unfriendly. Extremely. We were starving so we ordered a pizza. Pizza was actually good. Decided to get it one more try a few weeks later on a Friday night. Same thing almost empty. Once again horrible unfriendly service. This place is in a great location with very little competition should be a gold mine. They need to train staff on friendly, attentive customer service. We wont be back.More

We came to SkiMos because it was suggested by some local friends, who come all the time and highly recommended it. My wife got the Snow Ball sirloin, and I was craving pizza. Neither were that great. Steak was salty, but I will say it...was was a great cut. Her fries were soggy and soooo over cooked (greasy) and the minuscule salad was a laugh. The oven baked pizza (philly style) was brick oven, but too was over cooked and burnt all over...was average at best. Menu was limited and beer on tap the same. Only 1 other couple in place at 730 on a Thursday evening - just sayin'More

My wife and I live in Memphis and have tried over a dozen pizza places around town. This place ranks #2 in my book for pizza. It also offers other dishes including salads, steaks, chicken and sandwiches. The brick oven pizzas really are made on...the spot and are never the same which makes them unique and they taste awesome. Hands down a great all around place to eat and drink.More

What a fun place. We enjoyed it much more than we anticipated. Grilled buffalo chicken sandwich and the grilled chicken entree were both delicious. Broccoli wasn't prepared evenly, but the portion that was seasoned was very good. Website indicates live music on Saturday nights starting...at 7:30, so we were disappointed that wasn't our experience. Service was also solid. Overall a good experience and we will return.More
