Skeeters is a great spot for BBQ. You have a great view of the Susquehanna and the food is wonderful. It is the best brisket this side of Texas

My husband and I stopped in for lunch. It was some of the best BBQ we have ever had. Delicious pulled pork and brisket, and the sauce is very good. Their sides are great, too. We both got platters and it is a lot of food! We also really enjoyed the amazing view of the river. It's a great place,... More

This place is great! BBQ is not too smokey, sauce does not overpower the taste of the meat. Had the Baby Back Ribs, liked them so much we went back the next day and ordered them to go.

We've been eating at Skeeters every couple of months (basically, whenever we pass the area) for a couple of years now. We've never had occasion to regret the drive up the hill. The brisket has been uniformly good. Once in a dozen (or so) times the pulled pork was a little dry, but still more than palatable. Their regular sauces... More

We stop here at least once a month on our way to or from our cabin in Williamsport. The food is always great, the beer selections are good, the staff is friendly, and the barbecue is always good.

My wife and I picked Skeeter's after seeing the rating on Tripadvisor. The location is great. We watched some skulling on the river and the view was great. The food was ok. I ordered a fish and fries basket. Three small fish and a ton of fries. Everything was good, don't get me wrong, just a bit pricey. I'd recommend... More

We have stopped here probably twenty times on our way to the cabin. The food is always great, the draught beer refreshing, and the staff is always friendly. I always have the pulled pork while my wife most always has the brisket salad. I highly recommend Skeeter's and look forward to our next visit.
