Family owned locals restaurant. Cozy atmosphere. Owners are Greek, but wide variety on the menu. My favorite is their Greek salad with or without grilled chicken. Served with their own house blend of dressing that is unique. Served with toasted pita. My husband loves their Friday special seafood platter $6.50! If you become a regular the waitresses remember your order... More

My wife and I end up here every time we are in the Kemah area, there is nothing bad to say about this place, locally run, friendly efficient staff, good food, large portions, the biggest scratch biscuits I have ever seen, clean bathrooms, ample parking. what else can be said?

Ate here based on other reviews. My wife and I had a late breakfast on a Saturday. The restaurant was fairly crowded but we were able to find seats without waiting. My only complaint was that the open floor plan made the restaurant louder than I'm used to, and made it difficult to hear our waitress. Otherwise, the food tasted... More

Skippers - owned by a Greek family seems to have been there "for ever". Having survived several hurricanes they keep rebuilding keeping it true to its original decor. They serve the usual breakfast items one would expect from a diner but in addition, they serve a selection of authentic Greek dishes. A great family restaurant for lunch and dinner or... More

I have no idea how anyone could give this dive anything but 1 star. It's an old dirty diner. We stood around waiting to be seated for a long time, no acknowledgment from any staff. We assumed it was great food since there were a lot of diners but I think there were so many bc the waitresses take so... More

Old school diner with everything on the menu. All the food is 10x as good as Denny's or chains. Don't pass this place up of you are in the area. My favorite is the spinach omelette with feta! But when I feel like some home cooking Texas style ...biscuits and gravy baby!!!
