“Enjoyed food but service wasn't great”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

My two companions ordered a main meal and I ordered a starter and salad. The starter came up on its own leaving a very embarrassing situation that should have been avoided. To be fair I really did enjoy the meal, crab stuffed mushrooms, very unusual. To make matters worse my salad came up before the other two meals as well and it was bland on its own so although I enjoyed the meal, the way it was served completely ruined the evening

“Great breakfast spot, not resort prices!!”
Reviewed November 3, 2013

This restaurant is right across the road from the beach resorts, great place for breakfast. It is a Greek restaurant, but it looks like they have a little of everything. We always go here for breakfast when we stay at the beach, great omelettes. I had the Mediterranean and added gyro meat....yum. My husband had the western, both come with homemade home fries and toast. So good, this is the spot!!

“Nice restaurant with decent food”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

First off, have to say the food was good, but felt as if they were rushing us. We ordered APPETISERS and a drink, which arrived, but within about TWO MINUTES the main courses appeared! I'm not joking when l say l probably had about 2 fork fulls of salad, and the waitress went to take it away!!!!!!!!!! She looked amazed that l was " still working on it", surely an appetiser is exactly that, not part of the main course? I have been to many Greek Islands, and this doesn't happen, so it's not the culture. Then, as my wife had finished her meal, the waitress starting clearing the table as l was still eating, even going to pick up the bread l was still eating!! Then, just as l thought it couldn't continue, she picked up my plate just as l put in a mouthful of food and cleared that away, asking me if the meal was "all good". I couldn't answer as l was still chewing!!!!!
It's a shame this happened, as another restaurant got extra business from this experience.

“Just simply wonderful!”
Reviewed October 28, 2013

We went to Skidder's after another restaurant we planned to go to was closed (it is a Monday). it is unassuming and I thought we had made a mistake...but quickly discovered we were wrong! Menu was quite extensive, drinks were generous, waitstaff very accommodating. We wanted to take our time and have a leisurely dinner and they were happy to pace our meal accordingly. The food was delicious, the portions plentiful and the prices reasonable. The owner came by to check on us and complimented us on taking our time to enjoy our evening. We really loved the atmosphere and will definitely go back the next time we visit St. Pete. Do not hesitate to go to Skidder's...casual, with a great menu selection at affordable prices. HIGHLY recommend!!

“Best Pizza Ever!”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

Beautiful outdoor seating and real Greek owners. How could you go wrong? The restaurant serves real Greek and Italian so what ever dish you're craving, they've probably got it. They also serve Greek style pizza that is wonderful and fresh. We always eat here when we're in town. Love their homemade bread.
