Great local place, great meal.

My mom and I had dinner on Saturday night here at Skippers. We walked into the bar area and were a little hesitant until the waitress brought us to our table and we saw the restaurant was full and the guests appeared to be locals, which is always a good sign. The menu has great choices. I had... read more

It's very hard to rate restaurants of this nature. Local, somewhat seasonal as expected to be slightly higher in price. However when we recently visited this location for the first time, I was taken back on how local establishments try different schemes in getting the most revenue out of their customers. For this visit, we utilized a Restaurant certificate offer... More

I have been out here for over 20 years and did not try Skippers until recently. I had read the reviews and they were all over the place. I couldn't really tell if the place was any good. Recently several of my guests turned up late to check-in (I run a B&B in the area) tried Skippers since it was... More

This little spot by the side of the road has great home-style food and decent prices (for our very expensive area). Charming, homey and friendly. Clam chowder and shrimp bisque are superb!

The food is always great and a good amount. You won't go home hungry. And for the moron who knocks the art prints...obviously has no clue about our local artist Rich Fielder. Gotta love the out of towners!

This was my 3rd trip to Skipper's and found it to be a most pleasant luncheon experience. The service was very attentive but un-obtrusive and the food was cooked to order and delivered together and hot - don't laugh...this is probably the biggest complaint people have at restaurants - Definintly try the Manhattan clam chowder - fresh, lots of clams...

we received a gift certificate to Skippers but after reading some negative reviews, we thought we would just not use it. then, we decided to go just to see how bad it could be. well, we are looking forward to returning. if you get over the outdated decor, the food is quite good. the yankee pot roast delicious and their...

My fiance` and I went to lunch here on a random Saturday because I received a $25 gift certificate here. The outside looks dated, but the interior is cute. We wanted to eat outside, but they only had 1 very small table, and the view was of an abandoned gas station across the street. We were sat almost immediately, and... More

Scary exterior suggests salty alcoholics slumped over the bar smoking Camel no-filters, Reality is that its akid-friendly reatsurant bar with bizarre-o cheap maritime artwork in the dining room, which looks awful, and historic sports news clippings and photos in the bar- which is so cool. Get rid of the crappy art prints and nasty plants and the whole experience could... More

My wife and I would always pass by this place and see the parking lot packed, so I was convinced that it was a really good old-fashioned type restaurant (think outdated interior/design but friendly service and great homemade food). I always wanted to go, but the looks always scared her off. Well, we finally went in early spring. I was... More
