“Good place for Sunday brunch with family and friends”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 9, 2012 via mobile

Good food quality. Eggs, omelettes, waffles, biscuits and gravy, pasta, etc Pricing matches offerings and quality. Nice relaxed atmosphere. Good place for kids. Adults can chat, kids can have a good time without feeling like if they get a little loud they are disturbing others. Service is friendly. Maybe a tad slow, but it allows for a leisurely meal fit for Sunday brunches.

“Very good meal!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 21, 2011

Just had a very good early Sunday dinner at a moderate price - London broil medium rare with salad and veggies for $13.95. The salad and veggies were average, but the London broil with mushroom sauce was very, very tasty for the price. Friends enjoyed their meals as well - seafood sampler, Chicken Marsala, and another chicken dish. Dining at 4 pm on Sunday afternoon, we got good service and separate checks very promptly after dishes were cleared. This was my first time there, so was very pleased. Read other reviews about young bar scene at night so it may be different in the evening. We had a very pleasant enjoyable meal, and I would certainly return.

“Consistently very good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 28, 2011

I've been going to Skidoos for 30 years and find it a very good place and value. The prime rib is a specialty and outstanding and comes with a vegetable, salad, and bread. Their choices of seafood vary daily and are excellent from lobster to salmon, tilapia, sea bass, crab cakes, etc.
Their lunches are also very good from the hamburger to the steak salads, and chicken wrap with feta cheese. It's very good and I've never had a bad meal there.

“Genuine Bargain”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2010

I have been going to Skidoo's for over 30 years and have never been disappointed. The food is always excellent, service friendly and responsive, and particularly good value for money. This is not "fine dining", but very respectable American cuisine, properly prepared at fair prices. Lobster is often available for around $17 with salad, bread and side veg. Other fish specials are also very impressive. The beer and wine list are not extensive, but they are adequate and, again, reasonably priced. I have attended banquets in the private basement area and they have also been very great value. The atmosphere is cheerful and this is a good place of large groups, families, happy hour, etc. This is still one of our favor budget restaurants in the area.
