We looked at it. It's the same place in the same building behind the same parking lot bend the same inn, etc. We thought it was closed, but it's not. We'll eat there next time.

Bartender has the worst attitude I've seen in years; don't miss him a bit. Food grossly overpriced. Choose Noah's or Water St for a real meal worthy of the expense. *Skippers Dock was featured in the movie Hope Springs* released last year

My husband and I have come over from Long Island for the past 3 years, ever since we first found you. Your Bouillabaisse was excellent, and the Lobster dip with the Flatbread chips outstanding. Sorry to hear you closed. We'll miss you and the wonderful meals we had there every summer. It just won't be the same without you. :(

This place was one of the best deals in the area, but after many years, the lease was not renewed so it's very disappointing to see it go.

Have eaten lunch outside on the deck and it was great. My favorite is Sunday afternoons. Charlie Holland and his band is so nice.
