Came across for the day and stopped into skiffs which had some delicious frozen sangria and our bartender (pretty blonde female) was fantastic!! The jukebox is a fun addition as well :)

Second time visiting Skiffs. The food is wonderful, and they really load your plate. Service was amazing and the waitress was so friendly. And they took Canadian money at par for both food and drink. Bonus any way you look at it.

We were in town for the day geting our obligatory souvenirs and as it was warm out, stopped in for a bite to eat and a couple of beers. Bartender was very friendly and attentive. Food came out hot and tasted good.

Great bar, great drinks and good prices. Bartender was the only one there and she took care of the whole place with a smile on her face. Definitely wished we had gone there in the beginning of our trip.

Happened upon this quaint throwback bar the day before our visit to Boldt Castle. Really neat to peel peanuts and throw the shells on the floor. It was unusual to order sandwiches in Skiffs and have them delivered from a waitress who came in from...More
