Had the fish and chips. They came out nice and hot. Very tasty as well as the French fries. Small neat family run seafood restaurant.

Live review. If you are looking for a good beach food and can’t go to the beach then this is the place to go. Fantastic food, great service and reasonably priced.

Ordered take out, Cod, fries, onion ring. Everything was excellent, quick. Counter girl was very helpful and friendly. Anyone wanting a great quick supper you need eat in or take out.

A bit greasy, but very hot temperature, so one knows they are at a very low risk of bacteria in their seafood. Decent portion sizes, yummy hush puppies, onion are very good too. I'm a big fried flounder fan so it's hard to mess up...More

Looking at reviews,I was expecting great food but was very disappointed. Fish was very dry and tasteless. Hush puppies were the only good thing.

I won't recommend going out of your way for this. Order at a walkup window. Bpay and tip before getting served. Average to mediocre food served in a cardboard tray. Small oysters, average sea scallops. Not much on flavor. Just okay. Not returning.

Skippers has the best Fish Sandwich not only in the area, but state! Huge portion sizes and small bar compliments the casual dining atmosphere! Do Not Miss!

Skippers is the place for fried seafood. Everything is cooked to order. The food is not sitting under a heat lamp waiting to be served. The fried catfish is the best I have ever had. Couple the catfish with the house made tartar sauce.......you can't...More
