Prime rib. Prime rib. Prime rib. They do it as well or BETTER than any red meat joint I've been to, and I've been to many. I've been Skip's about 50 times in the past 25 years and give it five stars. Casual atmosphere. Nice people. Good service. Strong drinks made professionally. You'll think you're at a Wisconsin supper club.... More

Drove from Illinois for an overnight stay. Chose Skip's for their excellent seafood/prime rib buffet on Friday evening. We enjoy fine dining and Skip's rewards us with excellent food. Thank you for making my birthday evening special. We also like the outdoor summer market. Unfortunately we were a week early and had not opened. Saturdays and Sundays you can purchase... More

In short, the dark, dated, drab, depressing atmosphere is a real bummer here. That would be reason enough to not come back, but the food was also mediocre at best. We both went with the prime rib and seafood buffet and I had to tell the hostess that both soups were cold b/c no one had put a sterno under... More

I have family that likes this place. They do a good prime rib. The prime rib is quite good. The rest of the menu is also good. If you are look for a top shelf prime rib place there are better but, the food is good and the prices are fair.

Fabulous Ribs. Nice atmosphere, great cocktails, nice brunch. Really great bar area with BIG fireplace and tvs to watch the games. I usually get the ribs but I think everything they have is good. Worth a try.

We sat in the bar area dining (more cozy) near the fireplace and had a wonderful experience. Our server was very attentive and friendly, We had a party of six and all the meals came out on time and were delicious! Two members of our party had the buffet and loved it. The scallops are greta and the prime rib... More

All food very good, I also know their Kitchen and it is spot less, they always get the highest possible score from our board of health. Not large portions unless you order some of the red meats then most of them are listed by how many oz.s so choose your size of Prime Rib It is the best of all.........

Went to Skip's tonight to celebrate my son's birthday. He wanted to have a really good steak dinner and it was. We came from Portage, IN so it took about 45minutes. Only problem with Skip's was the service, which was terrible. We waited almost an hour before we got our dinner, and it wasn't busy at all. Our waitress only... More

Normally I never order the buffet, but Skip's buffet is definitely worth trying. The food is hot and fresh, and their are many delicious options to choose from. The atmosphere is welcoming and their is ample parking. We've eaten here often and have also ordered catering for a wedding and an anniversary.
