A very friendly restaurant with great food at reasonable prices. The staff makes you feel like you are a part of their family!

This place offers both good breakfast and lunch and a selection of comfortable wooden rooms at very competitive rates. The Ladies running the place are kind and welcoming.

We paid a visit to the historic fishing village of Trinity and stumbled upon this splendid traditional restaurant. We only had lunch but the seafood chowder was very welcome. What set Skipper Bob’s apart was the exceptional service we encountered. So friendly and interested in...each of their customers. Thank you.More

Quaint little place with a nice view. Nice menu with a fair amount of choice. We had moose burger and chowder. Waitress was very friendly. Fun informal atmosphere. Whale watching tours run out of the same place so we got to hear a little bit...about whales while we ate.More

We received a warm welcome, with some impromptu singing when we went there for lunch. A great atmosphere and good home cooked food.

Stopped here for lunch when visiting Trinity (so important to mention here that this is one of the most beautiful cities in Canada :) ) Located right next to the Anglican Cathedral (one of the major landmarks in town), Skipper Bob's offers heartwarming meals with...a smile (great service!); I highly recommend the split-pea soup (probably the best I've had in Canada) and the fish'n'brewis.More

While touring Trinity, we stopped here for a quick lunch. My partner was desiring a cheese sandwich and was not disappointed. I chose the fish chowder soup and was delighted. It had the right texture; not too running and not too thick. It was excellently...spiced and came with a bun. I asked for a second bun and was obliged not no cost. All the food is prepared in a simple kitchen by a lovely lady who is also your waitress. She provides excellent service.More

Hot moose stew and hot cheese toasties - ideal after a whale watching trip. Lovely ladies who work there. Limited menu but warmed us up.

Visited on July 30, 2018. Had lunch and was quite pleased. Small casual setting with great food choices. We had fish cakes, burger and soup and sandwich between us all. Everyone was happy with their food. Waitress was very friendly and welcoming! Would recommend!

Had a soup and sandwich combo. The chowder was fresh and full of chunks of seafood. Highly recommend for a meal beef or after the whale watch trip.
