If you're looking for something different and healthy for breakfast without spending big bucks, look no further. Extensive menu including gluten free, agave natural sweetener, buckwheat pancakes, turkey bacon and many different egg white selections. Nice covered outdoor dining, which is dog friendly, as well as indoor dining. Staff is attentive and Eco friendly. The waitress poured the leftover water on their tropical plants.

Good food, great prices, huge menu, good for families, great service and very attentive staff. The staff makes you feel like a friend of the family. The only drawback was a group sitting next to us that was drunk when they came in and not good for kids. Besides that no complaints.

We had enough food for all day for $19. It was filling and very tasty. Service was also friendly and efficient. If you are going to St Pete beach you need to eat here at least once.

I am known to be very hard to please... I come from a large family of excellent cooks. Skidders is without a doubt incredible. I am so shocked that anyone left a bad review.... They must have chosen badly because Skids is one of the main reasons I vacation in St. Pete and have vacationed here dozens of times over the past few years. Call ahead to see if it is available because its a speciality item, but if it is I highly recommend the rack of lamb. Lamb is one of my family's favorite meals... We have multiple ways of preparing it and recipes which we're begged for. Skidders goes head to head with one of our recipes and for the price, you cannot beat that. Don't listen to the bad reviews, go in with a positive attitude expecting the best and as a consequence your experience will be positive. Also... Order wisly.. Their food is exactly what the menu says and if its unclear ask a server or the owner/ operator who is usually there. I noticed the bad reviews seem to be linked to people who ordered items they probably don't like period... Let alone from a place they don't normally go.

Our family spent March Break 2014 in Saint Pete Beach, and had the pleasure of discovering Skidders Restaurant. Not only are the staff very friendly and helpful, but the food is reasonably priced, tastes great, and there are lots of gluten-free options! As someone who cannot eat wheat, it was wonderful to be given many gluten-free options and have staff well-versed with what gluten intolerance means. I cannot tell you how wonderful it was to be able to have great-tasting toast with breakfast, a pasta meal, or an amazing gluten-free pizza, just like everyone else! We went to other restaurants in the area, but they were either much pricier and/or had few/no options for gluten-free dining. We ended up coming back to Skidders again and again all week for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. While it is not high-class dining, it is very clean, pleasant, and well-suited to families. Our kids loved it and the portions are also excellent. We look forward to eating there again next year when we come back to Saint Pete Beach!
