    We went there in a small group for the Jazz Brunch, and were not disappointed. The Shane Wood Trio was superb, and we lingered until they finished their set. It was perfect, and we will return. Will also check out their Boston location for brunch as well. Food was quite good, and our waitress was great.

    Dined on 2/28/2014
    this was our second visit. we did not like this restaurant on our first visit- but felt that may have been because we went soon after they opened. Portion were WAY too small for the money. I got the grilled combo (shrimp, swordfish, crab cake) and i went home starving. I had gotten the same basic meal at legal seafood last week, and it was so much better! At legal, it came with a salad - at Skipjacks it came with some horrible wilted spinach loaded with garlic. my husband got broiled scrod - nothing with it. he got the horrible spinach, too. (No rice, fries, salad....nothing.) Our bill with tip was $80. the only things purchased beside our meal, were one chowder and one soda.

    The whole family went for Sunday Brunch - we all enjoyed it very much. If I had one small criticism - seemed like the cinnamon french toast could have been toasted less - it was still very good - we had a great time. Thanks

    I ordered Monterey Scrod and was disappointed as it tasted fishy and was served with plain white rice. The green beans were good. Service was professional and as attentive as expected except my empty water glass was never refilled. I was with a group of give coworkers and all thought their meals were just OK.

    The service people were great! The sea bass I ordered was so good! Unfortunately, my husband got the combo of swordfish, crab cakes, and shrimp and although it was good, there just was not enough,. When our waiter put it in front of him, he asked where the rest was. The food here is pricey which is fine, but he was not happy to pay that much and still leave hungry.

    Have never had a bad meal. Tried something different this time (baked scrod with the creamy crabmeat on top over a bed of spinach). It was excellent. My husband usually gets the swordfish an is always happy. We love he fried calamari RI Style. I think they make it better than anywhere else. We live closeby and it is so convenient to just drop over to Patriot Place and stop in for an early dinner. We love it at Skip Jacks.

    We love this restaurant as do our two young children. The bread and salads to start the meal are always delicious. As are the cocktails. I had a steamed 2 lb lobster which came perfectly cooked and cut just enough to make the opening easier but not done totally for you. The apple crisp for dessert was really, really good as well. Another very good meal.

    My first review - We ordered a "fresh" grilled fish (Cod) - It was neither fresh nor grilled. The smell of ammonia was so strong that it was inedible. In addition, the order took so long we were late for the Rev game (although the place was empty). Did have time to send it back. Paid and walked to the game - never to return again.

    Made a reservation for Friday night at 5:45 because that was all that was available on opentable. Got to the restaurant and it was very empty. Needless to say food and service should of been excellent. IT WAS NOT. Ordered a calamari appetizer that was barely luke warm. This should of been hot since it was so slow in the restaurant. Server was just ok. Not the friendliest and spent little time at our table. Again the restaurant was very slow. Very disappointed as Skipjacks is known to be a good seafood restaurant in the Boston area. Not this Skipjacks!
