  • My husband and I went out
    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/19/2008
    My husband and I went out for dinner to celebrate his accomplishments at work. He had sushi, which was great and I had the baked haddock, also very good. The ambiance was nice, and the wine list was extensive. We enjoyed being able to choose the size carafe for the wine. Service was great, as we had a lot of questions, and everyone was friendly. Overall, we would both go back here.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 11/17/2008
    Took my wife to dinner for her birthday. Had flowers sent to Skipjack's and the restaurant had them waiting on the table. The waitress was very knowledgeable with regard to the menu and the wine list. They didn't have the wine my wife wanted so the waitress brought samples of other wines for my wife to taste. My wife found one very much to her liking. We were there two hours and enjoyed every minute. The food was excellent from the shusi through the chocolate bread pudding and coffee. The "bento box" entree was a combination of four dishes each of which was outstanding. They even stuck a lit candle in my wife's key kime pie to acknowledge her birthday. We'll definitely go back, even without an occasion.

    Our party had a wonderful evening. It had an excellent menu, and is a top-notch choice for seafood lovers. It was exciting to be able to order from the sushi bar at the dinner table, and the food from the bar was amazing. The prepared meals were cooked to perfection. Our server was outstanding, did everything possible to match our requests, and knew when to stay versus go in terms of conversation. The only thing that could be improved is the dessert menu; a solid chocolate choice is a must!

    I have been to other Skipjack locations. I have enjoyed them very much. The decor was a little more upscale being it was located in Patriots Place. A very upbeat and vibrant shopping and dining area and of course our great Pats. It it a nice addition to the stadium area, I can't wait to see what comes next. I will make a return visit.

    My husband and I were there for lunch--our waitress was attentive, friendly, and willing to check on certain menu changes to accommodate my husband's special diet. w We have been to all the Skipjack's, but feel the food here isn't representative of the quality (and quantity) of the others. The chowder (which I've always praised as "better than Legal's" was weak, and the cup at $4.50, tremendously overpriced. Our scallops were good, not great, and very few. The bread was yummy. The restaurant is lovely. We are not sushi fans, but perhaps the bulk of their business will center here. Hopefully, the chef can master the consistency of the other Skipjack's and we can happily return.

    The food was fantastic, our server was excellant. Their claim chowder was one of the best we've had, the autumn salad was delicious. We ordered our dinners from the fisherman's catch menu (save a little $$ - order must be placed befor 6pm)... the shrimp & spinach scampi and the steaming bucket of seafood. They were both outstanding! Only complaint was we thought the sound level of the music could be lowered a bit. Even with the music, we HIGHLY recommend Skipjack's.

    We had very pleasant dining experience with our kids at the new Skipjacks. We've been to the other Skipjacks locations and always had a consistent meal. The fish was very fresh and tasty, the sushi inventive, and the fries delicious. The bento box was great- offering a taste of several menu options in a fun and appealing presentation. It was crowded, but not too loud which was nice. Especially considering it just opened, the service was good too. We live nearby and will definitely be back!

    The draft beer was ice cold served in an ice glass, something all to often forgotten. Oysters on the half shell spectacular! Blue fish was very tasty - I took a chance as this can be a fishy choice if it's not fresh. The only disappointment was the cappucino - made from a machine that pre-measured portions. It looked more like expresso and while tasty I would not say is their strong point. My friend had the lobster bisque and mahi mahi terriaki and said both were excellent.

    Four of us dined at Skipjack's for lunch on November 16 and were very pleased with our meals. The fish (haddock) and chips was particularly delicious and well prepared -- light and not overly cooked. The waitress, whose name I unfortunately do not recall, was very pleasant and while professional, was very down-to-earth and added to the enjoyment of our meal. The prices were modest and not out of line. We would definitely return to the restaurant in the future.

    I have been very happy with Skipjack's in the past, but their Foxboro location still has to work out some serious kinks. The silverware and glasses were not clean. After we pointed this out to the server she said they were aware that they were having a problem with the dishwasher - AND SO THEY PUT THEM OUT DIRTY ANYWAY??!! Crazy! Our waitress needs to be retrained. She spoke so quietly (not in a timid you feel bad for her way) but in a way that you wanted to say speak up you fool. She never refilled our water glasses and had zero personality. The food was actually delicious so the kitchen is good but the front half - pathetic. Plus the ladies room had no toilet paper in any stall except maybe the one with the door that didn't lock.

    My husband and I wanted to go to not the same old place for dinner on a Wednesday night. We arrived at Skipjack's on only their eighth night open. The service was great, right form the get go. The oil and herb brushed bread was a delightful way to start the meal. The bread was so good that we asked our server NOT to bring more, for fear we would fill up on it prior to eating our meal.The ceasar salad was delicious at $7 was more than enough for two to share. I had an extremely generous serving of very rich and spicy lobster ravioli. It seemed to get better with each bite. My husband had a beautifully cooked piece of Chilean Sea Bass. He thought that it rivaled any he had ever eaten. There was no room left for either of us to sample dessert.

    My husband and I dined at Skipjack's in Foxboro. Unfortunately the fire alarm went off at Patriot Place so that put a damper on the meal. My husbands food was cold so they did reheat it. They brought his caesar salad with no dressing so he had to ask for dressing. My meal was good. I think they need to work a few things out but we would go back.

    Not bad for a place open only 5 days. They tried to seat 5 of us at a table for 4, but finally fixed that. The main courses were fine. Loved the gingered sea bass. The calamari appetizer, which I've had many times in Newton, was over-cooked and not very tasty. I'm sure theyll get it all right soon.

    Trying to find where to park near the restaurant was an issue. My reservation stated "special occassion" not worthy of being seated in front of the kitchen door. The service was great and friendly. The glass of wine was a bit skimpy. I ordered the Lobster ravioli, way too salty and overcome by the mushroom sauce so you couldn't really taste the lobster. My husbands broiled haddock was good however, the presentation wasn't there. A bit of a chopped herb sprinkled on top of it would have made it look more appealing. Also, there was no lemon served with it. There were no salt and peppers on any of the tables. The atmosphere was okay, sort of cafe..ish looking, not too loud. A balcony with seating above the bar would be nice. "5".
