SKIPJACK’S was named after a type of tuna, indigenous to the Pacific, which is known for tenacity and strength. Jeff Senior chose the name to reflect his vision of a restaurant known for its aggressive pursuits of the highest quality product, while keeping it affordable. From the beginning, SKIPJACK’S was devoted to introducing Bostonians to a wide variety of the freshest seafood from around the world and offering it at the best prices.
SKIPJACK’S was the first Boston area restaurant to offer orange roughy, Mahi Mahi and is the originator of one of today’s most popular dishes, blackened tuna sashimi. The restaurant quickly became a local favorite, and in 1988 Jeff Senior opened a second SKIPJACK’S in the heart of Boston’s Back Bay.
SKIPJACK’S menu is complemented by an award winning wine list including many wines by the glass. Emphasizing American vintages, SKIPJACK’S frequently updates its wine lists and is able to provide many types of wine that are unavailable elsewhere in the city. In fact, SKIPJACK’S has been bestowed the prestigious “Award of Excellence” for more than 26 years in a row by Wine Spectator Magazine.
