Great place for fried seafood

Just as others have stated, the fish sandwich is a HUGE fillet! It makes a normal size bun look small! We ate outside on a Sunday afternoon and enjoyed everything. The hush puppies were great too! The prices are very reasonable for the amount of food you get. The is on my revisit list!

We love coming here. They have tasty food, great hush puppies and all for a good price. The kids meals are hearty. They don't skimp.

Had a Saturday lunch at Skipper's and among the 4 of us, we tried a lot of the menu. The "fish sandwich" (no type of fish specified) was a huge disc of fish that has as much outside the bun as inside! The flounder sandwich was 3 nice sized pieces of fish, warm and steamy when you bite into it.... More

This was really an excellent fried seafood dinner. I cannot eat fried food that often, but this place is like eating at the beach! It's a good place to seek when you are in the mood for fish! It's fresh and always seems to be crowded (always a good sign) but somehow you don't really have much waiting time. I... More

I don't know why it took us so long to eat here! It is crazy busy but they have no problem keeping up with the crowds. The selection is large, the prices are excellent and food smoking hot & delicious! Hushpuppies are amazing! With that being said, I see no reason to ever make flounder at home again...when we want...

If you are looking for good fried seafood -- Skippers is a great choice. It is not fancy, it is not fine dining. Counter service for takeout or dine in -- you can call and order too. Portions are very generous and the food is tasty. This is in not good for you seafood but it is good tasting. Skippers... More

This casual place serves numerous fried seafood selections and "steamers." The fish sandwich is a heaping portion. If you make it in for lunch you'll get fries (or slaw), drink, and hush puppies with it. Platters, combo platters, jambalaya, gumbo, clam chowder, and chicken strips or hot dogs for the non-seafood fans are offered. It's one of the few places... More

This was a return visit with my family. The place was packed which made us very happy. We love seeing locals supporting locals. A typical order of fish and chips and a baby shrimp portion with hush puppies. The portions are generous. The cool things is you can enjoy a cold beer with your meal if your in the mood.... More

Skippers has some of the freshest fish around and they know how to cook it perfectly. The fish sandwich at lunch is the best deal. You honestly have to cur the piece of fish in half and double stack it in order for it to fit on the bun. I am not a big fan of hush puppies but these... More
