Description: Things you need to know before you get here,,, - Don't wait for a maitre D in a 3 pc suit to seat you. Seat yourself - Don't ask for ice. Drinks are served in very cold cans and bottles with a wrapped straw. Why? Cans and bottles are recycled across the street while dirty glasses require the use of fossil fuels to heat dishwasher. Don't ask for a glass of ice water with a lemon either. Cold bottled water is $1.00 - There are no germ infested re used menus at the table. The menu is on the wall. - If the waiter seems to be ignoring you its because he didn't notice you as a new customer. Don't sit there and stew about it. Let him know you would like to order.

While in Summerside, PEI you must stop in and see Paul at SKIP's Fish n Chips. First my wife and I went, then we brought a group of folks from our convention back with us. If you are looking not only for a great meal and like to be treated like family, SKIP's is a must stop if you are in Summerside.

Every summer when I travel back to PEI, Skips is the first place I want to eat! Fantastic fish and I especially love the bar clams. It's clean and the service is always friendly. Hours are short but everyone needs a break, right? Can't wait to be back at Skips Fish and Chips again!! Try it, you won't be sorry!!

We are foodies who always research local restaurants before we travel. We were excited when we planned our trip from Ontario to the east coast of Canada to do some camping and visit with family. When we found Skip's online and read some of the reviews, we made a point of finding it and stopping by one day for lunch. Our hopes were that would find the kind of fish and chips that make you want to come back and a resto you could tell all the folks 'you gotta eat there!' when you return from holidays and tell people all about it. Well, were VERY disappointed. The food here is, well.... average. Just like any greasy, tasteless thing you have ever gnoshed at any corner fish shop in any town across Canada. Nothing special here - just typical fish and chips that are 'meh' edible, and certainly not worth going out of your way for. Don't waste your time trying to find this place. Three words of advice. WALK ON BY.

We have had Fish and Chips in many locations across Prince Edward Island but Skips was the best... The Very Best! Nice and crispy and fresh, it was a wonderful experience. We had this as a take out ...

The Fish & Chips were very good. The 1 piece portion is quite large and I couldn't finish my fries. My husband and I thought this was a good lunch spot. We both thought the fries were very good and appeared to be homemade. In a less than 1 minute drive you can park at the waterfront and walk along a nice section of the Confederation Trail - which is what we did to burn off some calories!
