Skeeter Jacks is one of those "local" businesses that have found a niche because they have earned it. I had been a patron for many years, both at Skeeters and at a restaurant the owners had before, but it was not until just recently that I "rediscovered" this place.
Besides decent and fresh fish and chips, the burgers at this place are wonderful. The coffee is always hot and fresh, and, although we never have any of it, the dessert and drink selection seems very extensive for a small and reasonably priced restaurant. The fries and salads are generous and tasty, and the pizza is excellent.
Aside from that, the service is fast and friendly. There is always a willingness to add or substitute, and the one mistake made in a special request was promptly dealt with. The portions are large without substituting quality for quantity and the prices are good. The atmosphere is not fancy but it is welcoming.
Of late, this has been our favorite place to go. It is worth a 10 minute drive south of town when we want a hearty, good, and not fancy meal. As that is what we usually want, I expect Skeeter Jacks will be seeing more of us.

If you want a family dinner without having to travel to town this is the place to go. Good food, friendly service, you can sit outside in the summer, easy access and parking.

South of the municipality of Powell River, Skeeter Jacks puts out a pretty good plate. We did take out last night: 2 pieces of cod, more chips than I could eat, complete with a small side salad, tartar sauce, lemon, ketchup.....

This restaurant is a hidden gem in Powell River. The food is excellent and the price is very reasonable. They have the best fish and chips in town.
