Excellent as UsualMother's Day lunch was a very pleasant experience at Skipjacks. The food was exceptional and we had a very enjoyable experience.
We have been going to Skipjacks for years (at various locations) and always find their food to be top of the line, service to be prompt and accomodating and the overall experience very high quality.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there on Mother'sWe were there on Mother's Day.Our waiter, Danny, was very calm, polite and sweet.Our order was accurate.I generally dread restaurants on holidays, but our experience there exceeded my expectations.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWas in Boston for first timeWas in Boston for first time ever on a business conference... My boss had recommended we have dinner there when we planned the trip... Was very disappointed... Had my heart set on getting a stuffed lobster! Had already studied the menu online in advance...

I was totally heart broken!!!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFor many years, our BostonFor many years, our Boston marathon group has dined at Skipjack's on Saturday evening of marathon weekend.

No crowd.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for out of town guestsA friend was in from out of town and fresh seafood is always the number one choice for visitors. I had never been to Skipjack's before, but someone suggested it. The food was delicious! She had lobster bisque and I had calamari (spicy). We each had the wasabi-encrusted salmon and split a waffle dessert. Everything was outstanding. The service was top-notch, and our waitress also patiently took photos of us using two cameras. We never felt rushed, which allowed our conversations to meander except for necessary interruptions. We were very pleased with the amount of the bill as it was less that we anticipated for such a great experience.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Jazz Brunch was a veryThe Jazz Brunch was a very enjoyable experience.

It was my first time there but I would definitely go back!!!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways a great seafood mealThis place has been around for years and continues to be reliable.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMReliable Seafood and AmbianceFirst visit in recent history, overall quite positive. Requested quiet table for 2 on OpenTable, got nice booth. It was a surprisingly quiet Friday night. Good reliable choices of wine by glass, enjoyed the Alexander Valley Chardonnay - perfect richer wine match to drink before arrival of food and also with the seafood. They offer standard preparations of various fish (broiled, blackened etc) and also a "Skipback's style" which was quite delicious. The hostess described it as similar to blackened, but lighter, with a touch of soy flavor. Had it with the snapper, delicious. Simple accompaniments, which suits me fine. Very competent and appropriately attentive waitress.1/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful EveningWe had dinner reservations following a performance at Symphony Hall. We arrived very early and decided to have a drink in the bar - great bartender with a different selection! We were surprised to see how empty the restaurant was that evening whcih always concerns me. However, our meals were fantastic - expertly prepared and presented. Our waitress was a little over-bearing for our taste but we attributed that to the slow evening. We will definitely be back!12/22/2012 12:00:00 AMMy reservation was honoredMy reservation was honored on time. We were waited on right away. Food was good and portions were ample. I hade the Restaurant Week special and it was tasty. We needed to be out in an hour and that was accomodated.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
