After being turned down at 2 upscale restaurants on the main drag (booked...or did they not want to seat 1?), I ended up at this diner a few blocks from my hotel. Food and service was functional and priced as expected at a diner. I don't even remember what I ordered for dinner but I ate it, paid my bill... More

I had breakfast at Skidder's in St. Petersburg Beach, Florida this week while at a conference. Excellent food and service. Great music in the background. I will visit them again if i get back there next year.

My husband and I enjoyed our best breakfast so far at St Pete Beach. We had eggs, sausage, home fried potatoes and toast. It was delicious and very reasonable. We went to a few other places and paid twice as much as we did here. The quality of food was excellent. Our server was delightful. We wish we would have... More

Food was good. Ask to be seated in porch. Much quieter there. Server was very helpful. Prices are reasonable. Must be a family run and owned restaurant

We're local to the area and often eat out, so we gave Skidder's a try one night. Unimpressed, and don't understand how it has earned 4.5 stars. My husband ordered the leg of lamb, which is their Sunday special. It came with some unseasoned roasted potato potato chunks and fresh broccoli. The broccoli was hardly cooked. The lamb was very...

This family run business is the best kept secret in St Petes. The food and staff will leave you with a smile on your face every time.

We belive our credit card was scammed at this place. Food was marginal as take out. Pay cash!! I have nothing else to say about this place. Good luck to Discover card in finding the criminal n pressing charges.

There was little good about this place. We were promptly seated but it was downhill after that. We asked for water when ordering the wine. No water ever came. Waiter took our order, brought our food and we never saw him again. Another waitress dealt with our payment. Now for the food: the salad was very unappetizing - such large... More
