I read another review about the fried oysters being delicious. So true. Charming restaurant at river's edge of very small town. Cole slaw just right--minimally dressed.

I read another review about the fried oysters being delicious. So true. Charming restaurant at river's edge of very small town. Cole slaw just right--minimally dressed. Pasta salad with crab meat terrific. But the fried oysters (I had the appetizer portion as lunch, with the slaw--seven oysters) stole the show! Well worth a detour from nearby I-95.

Great food, family style seating, even outdoor seating by shrimp boat docks. I loved the choices provided from beef to fish and everything in between. I ordered blackened fish with baked potato and salad. Every part of the meal was fantastic. The service was fast and friendly. I highly recommend Skippers!

What an amazing dinner! We dined here on the recommendation of the owners of the Open Gates B&B. We have seafood regularly as we are not far from the coast in SC, but this was awesome. The hush puppies were to die for! I so wish I could remember our waitresses name because she needs to be recognized for her... More

One of our most favorite stops for lunch or dinner when on I-95 in the Brunswick. GA area. Stick with the locally caught seafood, it'll be fresh and tasty, the kitchen is expert in preparing your meal. I had fried flounder -- with the head off, but tail on, it covered the plate. Scored and skin fried crispy, no sauces... More

Our real estate agent recommended this and we tried it. We sat in nice captain's chairs at balcony in bar. Lovely view of the river and shrimp boats and the beautiful Georgia marshes. They have a full bar and you can eat on patio (which I would recommend) or in the bar or in the adjacent restaurant. I say chose... More

The location on the water is a cool setting. I'm sure it's busy at night. I was there for lunch, and wanted to try a little of everything, so I ordered the seafood platter with cheese grits n collard greens. Everything was tasty, but the fried jumbo shrimp and collard greens were some of the best I've had. I sat... More

Ate here on our way home to Florida after reading reviews on here. Great friendly fast service. Food was delicious and nice size portions. Love the decor and the outside deck (saw gators in the water). Would definitely return when passing thru again.

Not a big or fancy eatery, but well worth it. The motel recommended it and we were more than pleased. They have a buffet as well as menu. We ordered a shrimp basket and a fish sandwich. The basket was fried shrimp, one of the best I have ever had, with fries and Texas toast. The fish sandwich was also... More

The best place in Darien, excellent seafood menu and great view dining on the waterway. Worth the drive if you're in the golden isle's. The food and atmosphere are great.

We were driving from Florida to the Northeast and it was close to dinner time when we rolled up on a sign on I95 for Skippers Fish Camp. And we are SO glad we stopped! The Crab Stew was amazing.. so amazing that my kids ate my entire bowl and left me about two spoonfuls! We also had crab legs... More
