“Worse than a cafeteria”

Skipper's Restaurant
Ranked #41 of 71 Restaurants in Greenport
Restaurant details
Reviewed June 18, 2009

I ate at Skippers on an uncrowded weekday. Probably one of the worse meals I have ever had. Figured I would try the clams casino since the clams should be fresh. Nasty all the way through with bits of shell thoughout. Bad service (strange since there was only 2 other groups in there). Rolls were dry and stale. Sign outside says they have been around for 30 years (the decor inside has at least). With this quality of food, I doubt they will be around for another 30...

Skipper's is located on the west side of Route 25 outside of Greenport, New York. It's not one of the tourist joints in-town by the docks, but it's well worth the extra drive. The feature here is locally raised (as in a couple blocks from the sea beds) Oysters. Hard to imagine how you could get them much fresher and the clean, fresh taste proves it. We had the Oyster's Rockefeller and they were the best I've ever had. We also sampled the Crab Cakes, Stuffed Shrimp Scampi and the Flounder and every dish as outstanding. Wish we could have sampled the Calms Casino or desert but we were stuffed.

The service is laid-back and friendly and the dinning experience very casual. More locals here than tourists however, there may be a wait at the full-service bar or outside for a table during tourist season on the weekend. Highly recommended.
