“Great seafood that tastes like you're at the coast”
Reviewed September 17, 2012

Fried seafood for the most part, but very good and very fresh! This place is always busy if that says anything.

Reviewed August 8, 2012

Been to Skippers several times and always good and always fresh. The serving sizes are reasonable. Paper plates but who cares so long as the fish is good ...

“Closest thing to New England Fried Seafood in the Triangle”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

Skippers is the closest thing I have found in the Triangle to the Seafood I would get in New England. Its nothing fancy (though it does have a bit of a nautical flair in the dining room decorations (its a re-purposed Hardee's restaurant. Food is worth the trip. My In-Laws's are long term residents of MA and relocated here. The love this place too.

“Get your fried seafood fix here”
Reviewed June 29, 2012

I was told to stop here by a friend to try the fired seafood. I love the fried catfish. The prices are decent here. The atmosphere is typical for a small strip mall restaurant. It worth the trip over to eat here. As the man said..."I'll be back".

“Like the family run fish fry places of old.”
Reviewed June 17, 2012 via mobile

Skippers is in a building that used to be something like a Hardee's or a Burger King, so if you're looking for fancy atmosphere this ain't the place. The plates are paper, the utensils are plastic but the food is quite tasty. I grew up near the water and we had many family owned fish fry (fish & chips) places nearby. This is the closest I have found to that kind of place in our area. Much of the food is fried but the breading is light and the taste is yummy. The people who work there are nice and the service is quick.
