Good portions of food. Service is very good. Ended up sitting in the bar area due to the noise level in the dining area.
Food is very good

We stayed in Modesto after going to Yellowstone national park. My husband and I found this place on open table and we were amazed. I had their special which was a shrimp and chicken kebob dish with a tangy sauce served with basmati rice. All their skewers are sold separately, but have a lot of meat/veggies packed on the skewer. Also, all skewers are served with the rice. After reviewing the menu, it was difficult to decide between all the options because all the marinades sounded so good! If I ever make it to this part of California again, this will definitely be on my list of stops. And the service was EXCELLENT!

Lots of parking, very friendly service, and food was yummy and fresh. This location is walking distance to the Gallo Theatre.

First time here and it was a great experience. Our waiter was very helpful offering food suggestions and attentive to our needs during the meal. I would definitely come back again before a concert at Gallo Center.

The food at Skewer's is always consistent and healthy and delicious. We had some special requests and questions of the waitress, and she was outstanding in every way. We go there very frequently and w8ll continue to do so.

Great food, great value. The service is normally stellar, but wasn't quite as good this time, but still good. They didn't have the dancer, which I appreciated, as I'm not a fan of the dancing. We go here regularly and usually have a great time.

Was first time here.. LOVED it!! My new favorite spot! Went here in a date with my hubby we both really enjoyed the food so much and the staff was so nice and friendly. There was even belly dancers at one point which was a fun surprise! Definitely going back.!!!

The food is always wonderful, consistent, and reasonable....the same can be said for the service. It can get loud, esp. on weekend nights....but it's o.k. for 2-4 conversations.

Took friends with us and the dinner was amazing with very generous portions. Great customer service and the added bonus of entertainment by a belly dancer topped off the meal. Everything was a positive experience except where we sat. It was a warm summer evening and maybe the air needed to be turned down more as we were feeling pretty hot. May have been the table location itself. We will be back.

We've eaten here before. I like Mediterranean food so it's always a good choice. There is a large menu so many great choices. Skewers is also within walking distance to our performing arts center. I also like the fact that Mr. Moored who I believe to be the owner supports non profits in his town.

We had our usual, Tiger Prawn Kabob and Filet Mignon Kabob, both with Ceasar salads. Main courses were prepared perfectly, as usual. Our only comment is that the salad never seems cold enough and is not served on a chilled plate. That would be a nice improvement. Other than that, we are always very happy with our meals here.

It's also nice that this restaurant doesn't seem to have a large turn over of wait staff. It's a bonus to be served by folks who know your likes and dislikes and make you feel at home.

I grew up eating this kind of food so I know what should traditionally served. Though they did not live up to my expectations, the food was very good. The service however was something else. We were there for almost 2 hours, yet the waitress only came around to our table 3 times the entire night!!!

The food is great, the staff wonderful. We go there quite often and this happened to be a Mother's Day brunch.. As usual we were not disappointed.
