“Skip Skipjacks”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 6, 2013

We have eaten here in the past, so we went back. It has changed. The food was ok, but the service was horrible. The waiter never looked at us while telling us the specials. After our meal came, nobody checked on us again. Our drinks were empty before our meal came, and it would have been nice to get some more with our food. Lucky for them that they already included the service charge. I would. Not have left them a tip at all.

This place has been good in the past, but I would not recommend it to anybody.

“Must go!!!!!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

The atmosphere is perfect. You can sit right on the water with a beautiful sea breeze. The food was out of this world. I went with a party if 12 and everyone's dish was perfect. The shrimp creole was out of this world. It's a must go for anyone staying in St.Maarten

“Great drinks cold appetizers”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2013 via mobile

The frozen lemonade drinks were great but the fish kabobs were cold. We also had chicken wings and they were OK. We did not eat a full meal here given the cold appetizers

“Average”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Skip Jacks is a restaurant I had heard a lot about, but left underwhelmed. The service was subpar and the food was good, but disappointing as it did not meet our expectations. The restaurant provides a cool atmosphere right off the ocean and the fact that you can pick your own lobster out of a pool is great. The quality of the food and the promptness of the service was disappointing though. This is an average restaurant, no better or worse than that.
