I've eaten in only once or twice...place is small and looks more like typical fast food spot. So often get food to take out. Example...lunch: fish sandwich. You're eating way too much if you can handle the huge filet (literally platter size) and feel full! Good quality. They'd just added a raw bar. Sides are good. Counter service is speedy and accurate.

We have eaten at Skippers many times as well as ordered take out.
Our meals have always been great. We usually get the onion platters and have plenty of leftovers.

Have been here several times. This time was for lunch with my wife. She ordered the Fish Sandwich. It had not one but TWO huge, delicious fillets. I had the combo with scallops and clam strips which was piled high. If you go here though you really should try the Lobster Bisque, it has plenty of visible chunks of lobster. Its a quick service restaurant, no tipping required. Tuesday nights and Saturdays are a favorite of mine because the run a steamer.

Family owned, great taste, large portions, good prices. Agree with other reviews that the batter isn't heavy and the frying isn't greasy.

My husband and I generally split the 3 choice combination platter (we choose cod, scallops and baby shrimp) and are more than satisfied and full.

For those who just won't eat their seafood breaded and fried, Tuesday after 5pm and Saturday all day they offer a steamers menu, and have shrimp, oysters, crab and snow crab legs.
