Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you want real calamari don't go to skippers.. I was hungry after taking the kids to the skate park at umina. And when we got home I ate one of the calamari rings I'd ordered.. It tasted horrible it was some sort of processed...fake meat, similar to a seafood stick. It was nothing like real calamari, It's false advertising!. If you order calamari, it should be calamari... They have lost a customer. What even infuriated me more was, that when I looked them up to call them , their my.ber isn't in use at the moment.More

If you are looking for a classic aussie takeaway burger tin Umina Beach then this is your place. It is hard to find a place that makes a tasty burger but I highly recommend their standard beef burger which comes with beetroot.

Since the new owners took over, they have maintained the standards quite well. The quality is good and the staff are very courteous. Unfortunately, the show-stopper for me is that when their chip cutting machinery broke down about a year ago, they did not want...to invest in its repair or replacement. Fair enough - I'm sure it's not cheap to do so. However it does mean that they are now just "another" fish n chip shop - nothing to differentiate them from any other (including their nearest competition about 3 doors down). My family and I have been coming here for most of my life (a little too often sometimes!) but not anymore. Hand cut chips are going the way of the dodo which is a real shame. Skippers was the last one on the lower Central Coast to keep doing them. It's a real shame and I so wish they'd bring them back. I'd be back if they did, for sure.More

I use to love the traditional style fish and homemade hand cut chips from here but over the last few months with the new owners, it has gone downhill. Don't get me wrong the food is good and not bad value but its not what...it use to be. The fish cocktails are tiny, they use to be thick and juicy. The chips arnt as nice and im not sure they are hand-cut anymore. The menu has changed to include drinks with most of the value packs. This is still a good food shop but not nealy as good as it use to be.More

with a variety of different packs from fish n chips to burger and chips they have something for everyone. the have a cold fridge with drinks and an ice cream fridge with your favourite ice creams. Staff are always happy and busy which keeps you...coming back. The only downer is they have been closed for extended periods of times this year for a few different reasons, but when they are open its a good place to go.More

First time we've eaten here so can't compare to the past but we enjoyed our lunch of flathead and chips. Staff were friendly and the takeaway shop had a steady flow of customers while we were there on a lovely Sunday afternoon.

Although the owners have changed over the years, from when my family and I have been going to Skippers from the early 80's, the quality hasn't changed one bit! In the 30 odd years that our family have been going to Skippers, we have never...been disappointed! My sister and I delighted in going down the road to Skippers to order our Friday dinner, to be given, in kind, by the staff, an extra serving of fish cocktails and potato scallops on top of what we had ordered. And the flavour hasn't changed! The crispiness of the batter of whichever fish you choose, as well as the texture of such fresh fish is heavenly. The chips, which I have bragged to many a friend over my years, in my opinion, the best in this country (next to Scotland and Ireland), with the combination of soft yet crispy and most importantly, fresh, peeled and par-cooked! If you haven't been to Skippers, I suggest that you get yourselves down there to enjoy their food. Especially with the beach only a stone's throw from their shop... What better way to end a day, than sitting on the beach with such wonderful food!More
