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. :(

Skippers is out of business and the owner of the property is renovating. We've read in the newspaper that he is leasing it to a NY restauranteur. Stay tuned.

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.

Stopped here for late lunch on the way to RI and we were not a bit disappointed. You can sit outside in good weather with a calming view of Long Island Sound in the distant waters. My husband and I shared an appetizer of p.e.i. mussels in a cheesy cream sauce and it was amazingly good. We never had mussels... More
