Fabulous Ribs. Nice atmosphere, great cocktails, nice brunch. Really great bar area with BIG fireplace and tvs to watch the games. I usually get the ribs but I think everything they have is good. Worth a try.

We sat in the bar area dining (more cozy) near the fireplace and had a wonderful experience. Our server was very attentive and friendly, We had a party of six and all the meals came out on time and were delicious! Two members of our party had the buffet and loved it. The scallops are greta and the prime rib... More

All food very good, I also know their Kitchen and it is spot less, they always get the highest possible score from our board of health. Not large portions unless you order some of the red meats then most of them are listed by how many oz.s so choose your size of Prime Rib It is the best of all.........

Went to Skip's tonight to celebrate my son's birthday. He wanted to have a really good steak dinner and it was. We came from Portage, IN so it took about 45minutes. Only problem with Skip's was the service, which was terrible. We waited almost an hour before we got our dinner, and it wasn't busy at all. Our waitress only... More

Normally I never order the buffet, but Skip's buffet is definitely worth trying. The food is hot and fresh, and their are many delicious options to choose from. The atmosphere is welcoming and their is ample parking. We've eaten here often and have also ordered catering for a wedding and an anniversary.

Kind of out of the way, a bit out of town. We had the buffet $35.00. It was fair. Lots of different kinds of fish, shrimps, crab legs, and prime rib. Guess when your from Chicago we can be a little fussy about out prime rib. It was just okay, the crab legs were tasty but small. Other tables ate... More

Had heard of Skip's Restaurant for years. Glad I finally got the opportunity to eat there. Staff was super friendly & attentive. The food was amazing. I had the prime rib & crab legs, along with house made chicken noodle soup & my mother enjoyed a house salad, prime rib & lobster. The wine we chose went hand in hand... More
