“Local diner/bar/hangout”
Reviewed 7 April 2013

If you want a no frills, beer and burger joint, Hi Point pub is fine. If you are fancy and civilized....No. If you want culinary delights....No. If you typically expect to spend $30 per dinner....No. You will be disappointed. But if you are a T-shirt person, a Ford pickup person, a person who likes Honey Boo Boo, you will like it here. Inexpensive, charming, down to earth....

Reviewed 21 January 2013

The food was good-large portions as well-not a fancy place, but a nice comfortable pub style establishment.

“Sadly on a decline”
Reviewed 28 November 2012 via mobile

Been going here for many years. Prime rib had been my favorite time and again. Aside from rather dramatic price increases they've eliminated smaller portion prime rib except one day per week. This used to be the best prime rib anywhere, not anymore. Don't know if corners have been cut by using lower quality meat, or if there's been.a change in kitchen staff. Last 3 or 4 times there have been a major let down. Mike, take note, please. You are losing valued long time customers.

“Good Bar/Restaurant with Great Food and Service”
Reviewed 6 November 2012

In Absecon, NJ and want good food and sevice with affordable prices then go to Skelly's. Try the crab soup which was sooooo delicious. I took some home too. Very clean restaurant and bar area. No bar smell in the restaurant. Restaurant is 5 minutes out of Atlantic City. Go and tell them that Tom sent you.
