We turned up without a booking and they were very busy. I guess they are often busy though as it they found us a table for two with minimum fuss. The food was fresh and tasty and the craft beer was also very good. I...More

We had lunch here. Fresh local produce (we had fish cakes and cod au gratin) which were tasty. A great view of the harbour if you have a window table. Service was good, and overall we were satisfied. Nothing fancy, but we would recommend.

We had lunch here, which consisted of two orders of fish and chips and grilled cheese for the little one. Food was OK, but nothing to write home about.

Came here for dinner and we were not disappointed! The food was great, my husband ordered the Cod au Gratin which he loved. The service was very helpful and the restaurant is very clean with a great view of the harbour.

Seriously, the food is delicious, homemade, and if you want to try some local cuisine this is the spot where you can get it! We had the pea and dumpling soup, fisherman’s brewis, and the not so local turkey club with hand cut fries :)...More

Skipper's Restaurant serves up a broad menu of homemade, delicious meals. We serve Atlantic crab, local lobster, salmon, mussels (all when in season) Atlantic Cod, cod tongues, scallops, shrimp- just to name a few seafood options, as well as grilled chicken, pork ribs, spaghetti and meatballs, 7 oz. burgers, sandwiches, fresh soups and salads, homemade desserts, etc. Everything is homemade and prepared on site in our kitchen. Skipper's is also located directly on the water, so we offer the most amazing views of the harbour. Watch fishermen come in with their daily catch, see icebergs glisten under the summer sun and watch whales spout as they frolic in the cool Atlantic waters. Why not make Skipper's a must-see stop on your next trip to Bonavista!
