Had a lovely dinner at Skidders. We thought we would need to wait as it was busy when we arrived but we were seated immediately. Lots of choice on the menu, lovely waitress, and tasty food. Would definitely recommend.

Was always a waiting line- so we thought that was a good sign. Staff was good but food was uninspired. They handle the volume of guests well but would not go back.

Most of the food was hot and fresh, except the fried potatoes that came cold. They played up their pancakes which were good, but then served them with Smucker's, prepackaged, single serving breakfast corn syrup. Not a bad experience, but we'll try a few others before we go back.

After being turned down at 2 upscale restaurants on the main drag (booked...or did they not want to seat 1?), I ended up at this diner a few blocks from my hotel. Food and service was functional and priced as expected at a diner. I don't even remember what I ordered for dinner but I ate it, paid my bill... More

I had breakfast at Skidder's in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida this week while at a conference. Excellent food and service. Great music in the background. I will visit them again if i get back there next year.

My husband and I enjoyed our best breakfast so far at St Pete Beach. We had eggs, sausage, home fried potatoes and toast. It was delicious and very reasonable. We went to a few other places and paid twice as much as we did here. The quality of food was excellent. Our server was delightful. We wish we would have... More

Food was good. Ask to be seated in porch. Much quieter there. Server was very helpful. Prices are reasonable. Must be a family run and owned restaurant

We're local to the area and often eat out, so we gave Skidder's a try one night. Unimpressed, and don't understand how it has earned 4.5 stars. My husband ordered the leg of lamb, which is their Sunday special. It came with some unseasoned roasted potato potato chunks and fresh broccoli. The broccoli was hardly cooked. The lamb was very...
