Give yourself a great a have dinner at Skip's. Prime Pork Chop was out of this world. Husband had the file, another had Prime Rib another had the Fettuccine. All were outstanding. Save room for the Lemon cake.

Skip's atmosphere is rather depressing and outdated. But they make up for it with consistent service and wonderful steaks! I would definitely come again.

There is no better eatery in Harbor Country than Skip's. They have the best prime rib, baby back ribs, snow crab legs, and steaks anywhere. Unfortunately the portions are so large, you won't have room for the wonderful, homemade desserts. 5 Stars

Good food, very nice atmosphere! A nice little gem I didn't expect to find hidden away in this small area along the lakeshore. Delicious prime rib. Service was slightly less than I would have expected for the atmosphere and food, but not a complete disappointment.
