What a gem...everyone was in the mood for seafood and we googled seafood restaurants in Saco. Went by the trip adivsor rating, which this got 4.4 stars. The lobster rolls were some of the freshest, meatiest, and best we have ever had. The fried scallops and fried shrimp dinners were awesome and battered to perfection. Everything we had was rave...

Back for the second time for the lobster rolls. Tried Sea Salt lobster rolls but they were terrible so we left most of it and came back here! Can't speak to the other items on the menu but the lobster rolls are tops.

This restaurant got high marks from several folks; but our experience was really sad. The woman who took our order was friendly. But the food was nothing more than deep fried breading.One of us ordered fried shrimp the other fried clams. THERE WAS ALMOST NOTHING INSIDE THE BREADING. Picture frying those tiny little canned cocktail shrimp or carving a small... More

Visited with my family of 5 on a Thursday night. There were several other diners there. Ordered several different fried items. They were out of oysters at the time, which was disappointing. However, my mini combo of clam strips and shrimp was excellent! Everyone in my party left full and satisfied. Have eaten there on other occasions, and have yet... More

Enjoyed dinner on a Saturday in August. Ordered at the counter from pleasant counter-staff. Ordered a "Haddock Rachel"... fried haddock with cole slaw and Russian dressing on toasted marbled rye/pumpernickle. I have never seen this on any menu before. I enjoyed the creativity of this menu item. It was very good. Had small clam chowder also. Also good. Recommended for... More

My family of four (3y and 4mo) enjoyed a low-key no-fuss delicious supper while on vacation in Ocean Park. The lady we met at the counter was super nice and accommodating; allowing us to finish our dinner and feed my son before leaving well after their closing time. I had the seafood au gratin and it was amazing! The menu... More

My father in law was so in love with this place, he ate there 3 times in a week. He said they had the best scallops he's ever tasted. The buckets of food were good and filling and the servers are also very friendly.

I stopped to get take out and asked for just an order of MAINE SHRIMP. However, when I began eating them, they were not real Maine shrimp. Maine shrimp are sweet and these did not have any taste at all and were all batter. I was very disappointed. I have had there Maine shrimp previous years and they were great.... More

Charles F, Owner at Skippers Seafood & Rotisserie, responded to this review

You are right. Maine shrimp have not been available for two years now due to conservation restrictions put on shrimp fishermen. The only shrimp that are available to us now that are similar come out of Canadian waters. They tend to be a bit smaller. Hopefully Maine shrimp will be available again next year. More
