Good food, service and ambiance. Sometimes they even have a band playing. Perfect spot for a summer get together with friends.

Your basic local bar/restaurant. A town landmark . Right by the waterfront with easy parking. Good simple food. A laid back place.

“Nice Local Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 4, 2013

Went to Skippers for the first time this past Saturday evening (03/02) and found this place to be very pleasant from start to finish. Went with my wife and her best friend for dinner, Got a table with out much of a wait, Waitress was very nice, Food was very good and the prices are reasonable for a North Shore place. They had a band at the bar and the only mistake that I made was not staying for a cocktail after dinner to listen to the band which I will try to do next time I visit.
Very nice place, Try it you will like it !!!

“The Litter of the Pick”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 14, 2012

I love Northport and there are literally a dozen choices for eating and drinking in the space of 2 blocks, spanning from amazing cuisine to fun, music-friendly dive bars.. Skipper's should be last on your list.

Pluses- 1) Mike the bartender is one of the nicest, friendliest and competent bartenders around. It's worth going to the bar just for him. 2) It's got a good size bar area so large groups (which I USED TO come here with) can be comfortably handled.

Minuses-Where do I start? Is it the food poisoning my wife got from some bad fish? Is it the rancid old surgically enhanced bridge troll behind the bar who left my wife in mid-order to tend on some guys and then yelled at the two of us after 10 minutes when she finally returned? Or is it the lies that she told (unknowingly to friends of ours) about how we were thrown out of bars all over town. I've had more drinks bought for me by restaurant and bar owners in this town, than she's had STD scares. I have been told by other employees that there have been many problems with this petri dish, so maybe she has incriminating photos of someone, or maybe the owners are too busy dealing with their restaurant next door, which is fantastic.
Either way, if you've got a large party, call ahead and ask if Mike is working...and don't order the fish.
