“Check it Out!”
Reviewed 2 July 2013 via mobile

Had company visit from the States, and they wanted a home style seafood meal. Took them to Skipper Jack's. What a pleasant surprise. The food was great. The chowder, really well done, the Wally halibut was delicious (a must try) and the lobster roll was tasty with big chunks of lobster. All in all a great meal and reasonably priced. The server was awesome and a good sport to help snap some photos. A really good choice if you are craving seafood in Moncton AND the strawberry shortcake was sooooo good.

“Nice Little Restaurant”
Reviewed 8 June 2013

This is a small, nice restaurant that we tried for the first time. We had clubhouse sandwiches since we weren't in the mood for having seafood. They were average, like any other place I guess. Nothing too special. They should have the prices listed as a entree, instead of $8.49 for clubhouse sandwich and then having to add a side for an extra $3.00.

Service was good, it is a convenient location, close to shopping.

Parking lot is very small, and only partially paved near the front of the restaurant. One of my relatives enjoyed it, but I personally wouldn't make a point of going back since it is mainly for the seafood lover!

“Excellent East Coast Seafood”
Reviewed 29 May 2013

We live in Ontario but make it a point to go to Skipper Jacks each spring and each fall when we take our daughter to school at UNB Fredericton. We love Skipper Jacks relaxed atmosphere and friendly staff. A small restaurant with a cozy feeling but east coast upscale at the same time. The food is always fresh, hot and there is so much variety. If you are from another area where you cannot get good seafood, Skipper Jacks should be your 'go to' of choice when you are in the Moncton area.

“Get the Wally!”
Reviewed 18 May 2013 via mobile

This was a fantastic supper. Walnut encrusted haddock pan fried with a Greek salad. My husband had deep fried fish and chips. There were rave reviews on everything, mostly everyone had fish.

“Top Notch Local Restaurant - Quality Seafood.”
Reviewed 16 May 2013

I am a Skipper Jacks regular, I eat there quite frequently and every time it is nothing but utter satisfaction. Not only are the prices extremely reasonable for the portions but the food is always fresh and delicious. I have read other reviews wherein people stated that they felt the prices were a bit high, however, I would simply have to disagree. You get what you pay for and if you quality seafood this is where your going to find it. It would be unrealistic to want to pay the same amount as you would at let’s say “Deluxe” for their Fish and Chips because it’s simply not the same standard which is a point I don’t think a lot of people comprehend. When it comes to service, every staff member that has served me thus far has been not only courteous but quite personable, you always feel welcomed. If I was asked to suggest something in particular off the menu, I would just suggest that you start going and trying everything because it is all superb, I have not been disappointed yet. Lastly, don’t let me forget to mention the homemade desserts, the strawberry shortcake is amazing and it’s hard to find a restaurant these days that actually has homemade deserts rather than store bought cakes or flash fried cheesecake taquitos – disgusting. It is great to see a local restaurant doing things right and Moncton would be better off with more restaurants like that. Skipper Jacks is a hidden gem!
