My husband and I have been going to Skogies restaurant at the Gainesville Marina for several years and have NEVER been dissapointed! The food is delicious, the service is always great, and the atmosphere couldn't be better as you dine and look out at the water; and if you are fortunate to be able to watch the boats go by,...

Mid July 2016. Arrived for a Tuesday lunch, looking forward to the fried fish sandwich we had always enjoyed so much over the years. But alas, things have changed for the worse. There was one other group already seated, so we were the only other table for the lunch hour. We ordered quickly, and while the wait staff promptly brought... More

We've been going to Skogies for years when visiting family who live on Lake Lanier. It's a flip-flop, swimsuit, just-off-the-boat type of place. Service has always been pleasant for us. The food is consistently average. A bonanza of fried this and that with a smattering of I-wish-I-was-gourmet items. The kitchen is not fast. Go to the restroom before you go... More

We went this past Sunday after church to grab some lunch. My husband and I were both looking forward to a grouper sandwich. We were told to sit anywhere so we grabbed the only clean table (3 or 4 were waiting to be bussed). We sat about five minutes before a waitress came and threw menus on the table and... More

Ordered the clam chowder and the "new" smoked Gouda shrimp fritters. Clam chowder was pasty...no flavor. Fritters were the same...very bland and greasy. I've never in my life sent food back...ever...but this was inedible. The waitress was very friendly and her service was spot on. They really need some help getting better tasting food.

We drive our boat up to skogies multiple times every summer. My husband always said that it was the best Grouper sandwich north of Frenchy's at Clearwater Beach! But they have changed their batter for the grouper sandwich and the shrimp. The whole group was disappointed! This Resturant is on the lake but back in a cove, not much of... More

Giving Skogie's a try was my way of supporting a local business while getting some seafood. My friend and I both ordered the fried fish sandwich with fries. We were the only customers and it took a long time to get our food. The fish and fries were nothing but oil. One could hardly find fish in the midst of... More

We were more than pleasantly surprised with this hole in the wall place! Surrounded by water with great views, the food actually became the star. The gumbo was as good as I've ever eaten. Home made hush puppies, Mac and cheese and tarter sauce were perfect. My husbands grouper was light and flaky w a huge portion. We cleaned our... More

I've given Skogie's several chances since we've been going to Gainesville Marina for the last 5 years. But, no more. Their service has been been consistently terrible the last couple years. The food has gotten WAY worse in taste and quality. Last weekend the ice cream freezer wasn't working and apparently neither was the ice maker. Last night's wait for... More

From Skogie's famous grouper sandwich to hush puppies, salads, burgers, seafood gumbo, and sandwiches we have something on the menu for everyone, and we serve it all in a laid back, relaxed atmosphere with beautiful lake views. Enjoy dining outside on our covered patio during the lazy summer months or have a seat at a table with a great view in our heated and cooled dining room.
