All 4 of our meals were not good at all. The coconut shrimp had no coconut flavor at all. The shrimp was rubber. Crab legs were skinniest meatless I’ve ever experienced. Even the pretzel with what they claim is beer cheese tasted like old cheese...wiz warmed up. Picking anywhere else has just got to be better.More

No manicure required! This place is GREAT. I can't remember the last time I ate dinner out of a paper bucket (maybe KFC in college) but it was so tasty. The shrimp were perfection. I loved everything about this place - the free Natty Light,...friendly service, and low pretentious vibe.More

We decided to give Skully’s a try for a authentic low country boil. Don’t be scared by outward appearance, it’s not much. And there is no where to get out of rain or elements. But he does a tasty boil of good size shrimp, sausage,...corn and potato. You buy it by the bucket, small or large. We fed 4 for a light meal on a small. Nicely spiced and done right. He offers free beverage which includes beer out of the cooler while you wait. Only complaint is you can expect bugs, we had biting flys which were annoying at the picnic tables. However he does have free bug spray, but they were very determined.More

Awesome place. The portions are generous, the shrimp used in the low country boil are huge. Not to mention delishious! They do sell out quick some days. Credit cards are not accepted so bring cash. Atmosphere is great, very laid back and beachy vibe. Owner...very has true southern hospitality.More

It's a small place off the road and a little hard to see but well worth the effort in trying to find it. This was the best low country boil I've ever eaten. We thoroughly enjoyed the local experience.

Les Paul was great to visit with as our food was cooking. Gumbo was not the usual New Orleans gumbo but delicious flavor nonetheless. Shrimp were really tasty and the fresh corn was delicious, good potatoes too. Bring cash bc no cards. Fyi, you can...call ahead and they will ha e it ready for you.More

One of the best meals we have had on our family beach trip! Got it to go and it was easy to transport to beach house. Four adults ate 10 pound bucket with plenty for everyone! Shrimp are large and everything seasoned just right. Not...too spicy, as we don’t like really spicy foods. Would highly recommend!!More

Skully’s definitely rates a 5. The menu is simple (you have two choices) gumbo and low country boil and the food is delicious. The drinks are free. You help yourself to sodas and beer. There is only outside seating available. We had the low country...boil and the plate is ample enough for two. They ran out of gumbo.More

Went to Skully’s tonight and had the 5lb boil and a pound of shrimp with my family. It is a laid back beach shrimp boil with a cooler full of free beers and sodas. If great fresh shrimp and free Keystone and Natty Lite is...not what you want keep driving, take a hard left after passing the restaurant and head into the Gulf of Mexico, and question all your life decisions. The purveyor of said establishment played some guitar in-between guests (and played it well) and no reservations are required for the picnic tables (as said purveyor informed an inquiring customer via a telephone call). Think the Dude from the Big Lebowski owns a beachside low country boil that should have 3 Michelin stars. The food was delicious and I can’t oversell the true awesomeness of the people and vibe. This location is the 8th wonder of the world and if you come to Cape San Blas and don’t go to Skully’s, you simply did it wrong and I feel sorry for you. Will be back to try the gumbo which was already sold out, because I assume it also will be a life changing experience that will confirm the existence of God. 6 out of 5 stars. I shall never again review another restaurant in fairness to them after having been to Skully’s.More

This is a great laid back place with delicious food! Order the...food and the drinks, including beer, come free with it. You don’t want to miss this one of a kind experience.More

We were referred to get Gumbo from Skully's by another local small business. Showed up and ordered our Gumbo only to find out that they are a cash only business. Well, we had no cash. When our order was ready, we were provided at no...charge! Needless to say, we went back on the next day they were open to pay...and order more. The GUMBO was incredible! Mild heat from spice but the flavor was perfect. I could eat this daily. If you are in the area, check it out. Just be careful pulling into the property. It's a little tricky.More

We stopped here our first night in the Port St Joe/Cape San Blas area since they are only open a few nights a week. We had a few free beers/sodas while we waited for our food. We got two orders of gumbo, which was soooo...good, filled with big pieces of shrimp and was so creamy and delicious. Also got the 10 pound bucket of shrimp boil - a huge bucket filled with fresh shrimp, potatoes, corn and sausage. Just an amazing meal. We took it back to our condo and ate it while having a fire on the beach. Couldn't have asked for a better night! Hope we can visit again someday.More

4 to 8 pm, but it might be good to call (850) 227-7011. He had cut back on help and hours due to scallop season being cancelled.
