    OpenTable Diner Since 2007

    The staff was fantastic. Our waiter, Johnny was a great host and had a great personality. The food was a major disappointment after the apps. I had the salmon with wasabi crust and it was a fair piece of fish with a mass of green breadcrumbs versus any wasabi at all. The dish had ZERO wasabi flavor and the veggies were way over cooked and sloppy. After the amazing crab cakes and calamari to start the visit, I was looking forward to an equally amazing main dish but was extremely disappointed in the over priced and under flavored meal. Had we been there for only some appetizers, 5 stars. However, it is the whole meal that is being reviewed and fantastic staff out front can't make up for under performing main entrees from the kitchen.

    We had been here once before for drinks only and loved the service and atmosphere, so I brought my boyfriend back here for his birthday dinner and we had a fantastic time again! We both ordered fish and it was quite fresh and cooked to perfection! I was not a huge fan of the desert menu, although they looked good I'm a simpleton when it comes to deserts and these were too complicated. Our server was fantastic and very attentive without stalking :)

    The food was quite good (we had the fish & chips and sugar waffles for brunch) but the ambiance was so bad, I wouldn't recommend anyone go there. They had a live jazz band, which in theory is wonderful, but it was so loud, we all had to shout across the table all through brunch. We thought we would finally get some relief when the band went on break but the music playing over the speakers was even louder! We asked the wait staff if they could turn it down at all and the manager said that the music was already on the "lower setting" as if volume isn't continuous on their system. We all left brunch feeling frustrated instead of refreshed.

Our waiter was just wonderful, loved him, wish I remembered his name. He let us take our time, he was sweet and thoughtful, and new his stuff.

    Probably won't get the best review from me, as I am not a seafood lover. But the other three in our group all like fish. Basically, a good restaurant. Food is good, service is okay and prices are in line. Not my favorite, but we have been there a couple of times and probably will get back there again at some point.

    We go here often and have found the food to be outstanding. The only food complaint that I have is that, on one occasion, the fried clam platter was extremely small. I felt scammed and should have complained at the time. The prices are fairly high which I have no problem paying as long as you are served appropriate portions.

I had the Haddock w/Skipjacks seasoning - out of this world. My partner had the haddock stuffed w/crab and served w/spinach. We enjoyed the wine and had the glass & 1/2. Fabulous dessert- home-baked bread pudding (light cocoa) was superb nestled under a light layer of fresh cream. The best!

    I have been to Skipjack's Foxboro (as well as some of their other locations) many times, and I really enjoy the wide array of seafood options there. This was the first time I'd been there for their Sunday Jazz Brunch, and I would recommend it, as long as you don't mind loud music while you're eating! The brunch menu was intriguing and there were several options I wanted to try. I ended up selecting the Eggs Skipjack, which was an Eggs Benedict, but over crab cakes...rich and delicious. If you buy an entree and are there during brunch hours, you can have a $1 mimosa or bloody mary...couldn't pass that up! The mimosa was very tasty. My entire party of 5 seemed to enjoy the brunch experience. The only true negative was the loudness of the jazz

    This is not a good place for a business dinner. We brought customer hoping for upscale yet casual dinner that would not be the entire evening. We sat at 6ish and it took until after 10 pm, for a party of 6! Very slow, inconsistant. Sushi was great & we should of stopped at that. Entrees were overcooked, sending back two that were cold & overcooked. Even the coffee was cold. Very disapointing, which we shared with the manager who was very nice. We normally bring clients to Davio's but really wanted great fish and a change. We really wanted this evening to be special & work, but, I am sorry to report, it did not.
