Best fried oysters

Some of the best fried oysters and shrimp we've eaten in a long time. Well worth the drive up from St Simons for a great meal in a quieter surrounding.

I heard good things about this place before we visited, and these good things were confirmed - featuring fine seafood at reasonable prices. The fried shrimp and crab cakes were especially tasty. Following dinner, take a walk out on the pier. A beautiful natural setting. I would enthusiastically recommend this restaurant to anyone visiting Darien.

Long time ago, we saw a billboard off the highway and we now stop here once a year on our way home from vacation. They have a wonderful Wild Georgia Shrimp Platter ($22) that is heaven on a plate! I always get the loaded baked potato and onion rings as my sides. High prices but large portions... even at lunch!... More

We return to Darien periodically to enjoy its uniqueness, and always plan for a meal or two at Skippers. By far the best seafood around. Service is always good, and prices are appropriate. Don't hesitate to eat at Skippers.

Darien is known for its shrimp and the folks at this restaurant catch It if rush everyday. My husband and I had the Half & Half Platter, choosing shrimp and scallops. I have never had scallops so sweet and so perfectly prepared. The shrimp were absolutely delicious, too. At $23.99 plus drink It is not inexpensive, but it is well... More

We took a detour off the I95 to pick up some food to go. Well worth it! The blackened mahi was delicious - just as good as we had eaten the previous day in an upmarket restaurant in Savannah and far cheaper!

Our last seafood of our visit. I had lots of fried shrimp left over to take home. Crab stew was only ok. Oysters Rockefeller was only ok. Oysters were very small. Wait staff was very friendly and efficient. We will go back.

We decided to take 17 from Savannah to Sea Island. As lunch time approached we found ourselves in Darien. Apparently the place to go is Skippers Fish Camp. Located on the water, looking at the bridge with shrimp boats visible from dining area. The outdoor area looked wonderful, weather permitting. The alligator in the marsh just off the deck added...

Situated on the Darien river, the outside deck at the oyster bar, is a great place to experience their oysters or a drink. The food is consistently good, with emphasis on local seafood. Many nights they have live entertainment. staff is friendly and helpful. Can't help but to love this local place!

Great food, great service. Crowded but well managed by staff-wedding reception & graduation party going on along with usual Sunday evening business. Pulled it off very smoothly and professionally!
