There is no better eatery in Harbor Country than Skip's. They have the best prime rib, baby back ribs, snow crab legs, and steaks anywhere. Unfortunately the portions are so large, you won't have room for the wonderful, homemade desserts. 5 Stars

Drove from Illinois for an overnight stay. Chose Skip's for their excellent seafood/prime rib buffet on Friday evening. We enjoy fine dining and Skip's rewards us with excellent food. Thank you for making my birthday evening special. We also like the outdoor summer market. Unfortunately...More

In short, the dark, dated, drab, depressing atmosphere is a real bummer here. That would be reason enough to not come back, but the food was also mediocre at best. We both went with the prime rib and seafood buffet and I had to tell...More
