My family and I have been on vacation in Jekyll Island for 5 days now and we have been to Skippers twice. This place has some of the best shrimp. The best thing on the menu is there sweet potato soufflé. It is the best I have ever had!!!! Would tell anyone about this restaurant......Go There.

Best Fried Shrimp of my visit to south Georgia during shrimp season. Fun Family atmosphere. Went for lunch. The onion rings were also excellent. Really everything we ordered was good but the fried shrimp could not be beat.

Less than 10 minutes from I-95, great food, and definitely worth the trip. Located at edge of shrimp boat dock and providing indoor and outdoor dining overlooking the dock and Darien River. Wonderful seafood and barbecue alike. You'll be glad you made the short trip for lunch or dinner.

If you love shrimp and oysters (and beer), then you MUST come to Skipper's! We adore this place...it is an "off-the-beaten-path" kind of local's place. Come to see the shrimp boats, enjoy the views along the river and eat locally sourced food. Simple, unpretentious, and just plain good!

Found Skipper's online on our trip home from Florida going north on I-95. Saw the good reviews, decided to give it a try, and was glad we did! My husband had the fried oysters and fried scallops while I had boiled shrimp and fried scallops and all were absolutely sublime, especially the oysters. Oysters are usually near the bottom of...

This restaurant was just okay I mean it was not the best and I've had a chance to taste some really good seafood with traveling. The service was not bad but as I've stated I've had better all around. Was traveling with a large group so we had about 26-30 in the party and we made reservations but they were... More

Nice not too far out of the they way place, the food was very good. We had mostly seafood for lunch so it was a little pricey but the service was good and I would go back again.

While traveling 95 from Florida to Maryland, we found this restaurant a few years ago. Earlier this year we stopped at Mudcat Charlie's and had a good, cheaper meal on paper plates android music. Today at Skippers we decided that Skippers is far superior.

I stopped here to have some authentic South Georgia seafood. I order the smaller Sweet Georgia Shrimp Platter. I had plenty of shrimp on my plate. I liked the mac and cheese they served. I also enjoyed the view from my seat. I wish it has been cooler outside to have enjoyed the outdoor seating.
