Great fresh seafood, great service, friendly patrons and fabulous atmosphere. Good selection of craft beers. We have visited several times on our way to and from Florida. Close to 95.

We had dinner here - shrimp, calamari and crab cakes. Everything was prepared to perfection. The crab cakes in particular were delicious, with just enough filler to hold together chunks of crab. Good service and great prices and quality. Wish I had not been passing through, but if I am in the area again I know I will be back.

Beautiful views, friendly staff, and amazing food!!! If you're looking for fresh and local seafood, this is the place! Stuffed pork chop and collards are to die for. Definitely a "must go" when in the area.

Skipper's Fish Camp had wonderfully battered ion rings. The batter was light, covering thick, sweet ions, and had just a tad of black pepper. The shrimp appetizer was 8 medium size battered shrimp with both a red cocktail sauce and a tartar sauce, both with a slightly different flavor-not your run of the mill. The 8 oz bacon cheeseburger was... More

We try to coincide our trips to and from St. Simons Island with a lunch visit to Skipper's in Darien. Located right on the river in downtown Darien, they serve an excellent lunch and have great service. The shrimp are lightly battered, and served with a remoulade sauce that is heavy with a great garlic flavor. A consistent favorite of... More

Skippers is very handy to Waterfront Inn. The service was good. We were late arrivals and were still treated very well. Our food was most tasty. The ambiance is great...right on the river.

It was our first visit but we will be back..Since it was Mother's Day it was crowded, but the wait was not long and the view on the river with the shrimp boats was very relaxing and enjoyable As far as the restaurant goes is was terrific...

We have eaten here on two trips to Deltona, Florida. The desk clerk at our hotel recommended this. We're so glad she did. Wonderful seafood, great service and beautiful view. On the waterway. We ate outside on the deck both times, it was lovely. Also great opportunity for photos. Darien is a small historic town, not much to see but... More

Skipper's has an excellent array of seafood cooked any way you like. My favorites are steamed oysters and the flounder. The sides are fresh and homemade.....fried okra, Mac & Cheese, collard greens, cheese grits, etc. Perfect sweet, craft beers, wine and alcoholic beverages. I recommend a Grey Goose lemon martini.
