We had lovely fish and chips here. I was really pleased to be able to get grilled trumpeter and my partner was pleased to be able top get a burger, as he is allergic to fish.

Perched over the water, Skippers is certainly a unique place to grab some local fish. Good set up, friendly service, quick service. The fish appeared a little blonde, but was cooked and tasted good and fresh. The chips were also well received. Served in a...More

Hi Adamp, For someone from Adelaide you really don't like a lot of St Helens restaurants do you! Four out of the six restaurants you have reviewed received "terrible" scores yet Blue Shed and Captains Catch both received 5! Keep up the good work Irina. Kindest regards Louise
