Great seafood!

Their food is great! The steamed crab, shrimp and oysters are my favorite. The fish sandwiches are delicious too. Their hushpuppies are just like my favorite restaurants at the beach.

This is not, in my opinion, good seafood. Nothing is fresh. Everything is over-breaded & deep fried into tasteless ick. So gross.

Skippers is the go-to place when the fried seafood craving hits. It appears clean, with very polite and helpful counter staff and dandy, not greasy tasting food. Their grilled mahi mahi was distinctly fresh with a nice tasty smoke-off-the-grill back flavor. All of the dishes sampled were fresh tasting and had no fryer after taste. Their prices are fair for...

My wife and I, both senior citizens, have frequented Skippers countless times since they opened and have always been pleased with both the quality and quantity of the food. Today, I placed a to go order, a two piece combo, which my wife picked up. When I opened it at home, the seafood serving size was substantially less than we... More

Stopped in for dinner last night and once I figured out what I wanted I ordered the buffalo shrimp sandwich and fried ocra. I was expecting a hamburger bun with a few shrimp and a few Cora pieces. I left and when I got home was very pleasantly surprised by the amount of shrimp and ocra. For the price it... More

Great seafood, everything tastes great but love the blackened mahi-mahi either as a taco or dinner, friendly staff and clean place for families, etc. Great for lunch or dinner.

This restaurant has all the fried seafood you are used to seeing at fish joints around here -- shrimp, oysters, fish and clams. But they also have steamers -- oysters, shrimp, and clams. The sides are the usual sides of fries, coleslaw, hush-puppies and fried onion rings. The tarter and seafood sauce are to die for. The steamers and extremely... More

The food is always good and while I know that good seafood is never cheap, for the portion size, I think they are a little pricey. If the atmosphere was a little different and you were paying for table service, then I might also feel differently. Great for your familiar fried seafood dinner.
