Service is the best on the island ( so far ) , in my opinion because the owner is on site. Entrees ( little heavy on the cheese on two of the fish meals we had )and apps were great, fast service, drinks stiff and timely. Definitely will come back. Nice view of harbor.

Fantastic foor but the portions are killer. Need to put those lobsters and langoustine's on a diet. French onion soup was also a winner!

Reliably great seafood service and ambiance. We have spent 2 to 6 weeks on St Martin at least 7 times over the past 20 years. Skipjacks is a staple. Many tables abut the dock where the boats bring fresh fish in. Service always great. BBQ ribs also excellent.

We enjoyed an early dinner seated bayside and enjoying beautiful views and a marvelous breeze. Service was friendly, but definitely ran on island time. The seafood, generally, was well prepared but, I must say I've had better. My swordfish was a bit overdone and dry. My wife's scallops, though, were perfectly done. The included salad left something to be desired... More

The Good: Conveniently located, nice view, good service The Bad: The food. We ordered Caribbean lobsters because they were out of the Maine. Caribbean lobsters had no flavor, the salmon was way too dry, and the appetizers were average.

We absolutely loved our dinner at Skipjack's. The atmosphere was wonderful. Little boats kept coming up to the dock outside with hungry patrons. It was my fiance's birthday and he picked a Caribbean lobster from the tank. As we waited for the main course, we enjoyed a lovely pinot grigio and the tuna carpaccio. The lobster was worth the wait.... More

Went to this restaurant that said to be voted Saint Martin's best seafood restaurant. The place was nice and by the sea and it was already almost full when we arrived at 6.45pm. We got a nice table. Service was very good and there was this guy who smiled all the time and made us smile too. The food was... More

We went here for a late supper. A couple got lobster, I got the whole snapper. All were cooked well. The view is very nice and our cocktails were very good too.

Ask for a seat by the bay; bid ships and beautiful view as you eat. Food and service was great. Wonderful way to spend our last night on the island.
