We looked at it. It's the same place in the same building behind the same parking lot bend the same inn, etc. We thought it was closed, but it's not. We'll eat there next time.

Bartender has the worst attitude I've seen in years; don't miss him a bit. Food grossly overpriced. Choose Noah's or Water St for a real meal worthy of the expense. *Skippers Dock was featured in the movie Hope Springs* released last year

Just the most adorable place in Stonington! Love this place. Great seafood, good service and amazing views. Just idyllic. I would definitely recommend Skippers.

Have eaten lunch outside on the deck and it was great. My favorite is Sunday afternoons. Charlie Holland and his band is so nice.

Skipper's was recommended by a friend for its view. We went for drinks. It was a treat! Definitely worth a visit.
