All food very good, I also know their Kitchen and it is spot less, they always get the highest possible score from our board of health. Not large portions unless you order some of the red meats then most of them are listed by how many oz.s so choose your size of Prime Rib It is the best of all.........

Went to Skip's tonight to celebrate my son's birthday. He wanted to have a really good steak dinner and it was. We came from Portage, IN so it took about 45minutes. Only problem with Skip's was the service, which was terrible. We waited almost an hour before we got our dinner, and it wasn't busy at all. Our waitress only... More

Normally I never order the buffet, but Skip's buffet is definitely worth trying. The food is hot and fresh, and their are many delicious options to choose from. The atmosphere is welcoming and their is ample parking. We've eaten here often and have also ordered catering for a wedding and an anniversary.

Kind of out of the way, a bit out of town. We had the buffet $35.00. It was fair. Lots of different kinds of fish, shrimps, crab legs, and prime rib. Guess when your from Chicago we can be a little fussy about out prime rib. It was just okay, the crab legs were tasty but small. Other tables ate... More

Had heard of Skip's Restaurant for years. Glad I finally got the opportunity to eat there. Staff was super friendly & attentive. The food was amazing. I had the prime rib & crab legs, along with house made chicken noodle soup & my mother enjoyed a house salad, prime rib & lobster. The wine we chose went hand in hand... More

Prime Rib and Seafood Buffet on Friday and Saturday nights is very popular. Make sure to make a reservation! Salad bar was basically lettuce, cheese, and grape tomatoes. Not very good. The cocktail shrimp is peel and eat. They should spend the extra money and use the ready to eat version. I wouldn't care if they passed on the cost... More

Been going here for years and never disappointed I especially like their chicken livers and mashed potatoes .... Where else can you get that? My partner is fond of the prime rib which is consistently tender and flavorful . Desserts are monsterous and one can feed 4 people easily . A mainstay in harbor country
