“Amazing Food and Excellent Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 15, 2010

We are from Colborne Ontario Canada and stayed at Travelodge and Beachcomber Beach Resort. We have been riding a motorcycle from our home to St Petes for 4 years on vacation now and "stumbled" across Skidder's 4 years ago. Each year for our 4 days at St Petes we have been dining at Skidders. The food is consistently good and the service is just amazing. All the staff work together to help each other and make the customer's experience the best it can possibly be. Smoking area is also provided. We highly recommend you visit the friendly staff at Skidder's....Thanks Nick and Peter especially for your hospitality..

“wow”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 7, 2010

this place is a cute place but dont let the looks fool you.. went for breakfast and i got a ham and cheese on a homeade roll. well the roll was stale and the ham was hard to chew threw, my bf got pancakes that were chewy almost like gum, def not freashly made. it was inexpensive but that is no excuse to have food taste like it has been sitting for a while. better off with going with i hop down the street or mcdonalds

I sincerely apologize for your experience, the pancakes are absolutely made fresh. unfortunately if they were chewy that means they weren't cooked properly, and we are in the process of improving our breakfast rolls. We take great pride in our restaurant and feel very badly to not have satisfied you.

“Not as good as in the past”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 5, 2010

During the last 10 years we have visited st petes 6 times and we have always made the effort to enjoy at least 2 visits to skidders. This year we had 2 weeks on the beach as we were celebrating our 25th wedding anniverssary. We had considered holding our wedding dinner here as in the past we have always had splendid food & great service. This year we were quite disappointed as although my daughters hamburger dinner was fine, my steak had more fat than is normal and my wife had to send her lasagne back to the kitchen as it was served cold throughout. We didnt complain as we always wish to avoid being picky, but overall it wasnt the best expereince we've had a skidders which convinced us not to return this time. It may be a one off - we shall see when we very likely will make the effort to get to our favourite holiday spot in 2011.

“Good place to eat good food on a budget”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2010

Love this place, it has a bit of a diner feel to it but the food is just great.

The pasta is very nicely cooked an presented and the quantity matches the quality of the food.

If you are hungry and Snappers down the road is all full up then this place is a close second in terms of places to eat on St Pete's beach.
