This is an old school cafe.. Feels like family and the food is spot on. I had a great breakfast sandwich. It was just what I needed to get my day going.

Friendly people, good old fashioned home cooking. Prices are low. I love the Sand Dollar! They have many good menu items and also specials. They aren't expensive. They also offer outdoor seating.

This was a perfect stop for a quick simple breakfast. The food was good and the portions were generous. Must bring cash they don't take plastic. John & LynNita Ellis

Family run place for 35 years. Breakfast and lunch only. CASH only, no cards of any type. Nice patio across from the beach, but when it's busy you need to go inside to order. Breakfast and sandwiches likely your best bet.

Went for lunch and it was ok. Had a burger and a fish sandwich. Just okay. I would not bother stopping here again. Better food at other places in town. The do have outside seating for you and you pet.

I was really disappointed. I expected more from this place. I ordered at the window and sat out street side, which was the best part of the experience... I enjoy traveling and watching locals come and go :). The burger was so over cooked, dry and flavorless and the fries a bit better but still not crispy like they should... More

Good breakfast and lunch spot near the pier and beach area. Service is always great. Servers are friendly, and remember if you've been there before.

Skippers offers diner fare; nothing jumped out at us, but it was good home cooking and the staff were awesome. Dog friendly on the patio, which had fun and comfortable ambience. The staff brought our dog a water dish and treats. They had no problem stepping over him and other dogs while serving. Happy staff!

This is a locally owned, family friendly restaurant that served us a hearty, delicious breakfast. The hash browns were perfect. There were some locals in the restaurant while we were there, which tells me it's a good place to eat. Great service; fun outdoor dog-friendly patio that looks out over the ocean.

The first time we ate in the patio and the fish and chips were excellent. Next time, we ate inside due to inclement weather. the fish and chips were not at par. Also, the surroundings were not very clean.
