Average seafood joint with a good view. Service is disinterested and not especially helpful. Had the fried oysters, not bad but far from the best. No one else was impressed with the food other than there was a lot of it.

Skippers always delivers. From Cream of Crab soup and Crab crusted Oysters to Everything Crusted Salmon and Rockfish Tacos —We loved it all. The seasoned waitstaff is friendly and service is fast! Beautiful waterfront restaurant and bar. Highly recommend a visit to this little gem!

Food is good, dockbar service is nearly non-existent, have to get up and go to bar for drinks or to order. The atmosphere is decent. Outdoor seating right on water, and plenty of tables.
