We were with friends exploring Darien & decided to ask the local owner of the wine bar if he had a recommendation. Skippers was first on his list. Wow! Are we ever glad that we took his advice. The crab dip as an appetizer was filled with big chunks of crab & tasted great. Our friends said that the shrimp... More

Went to Skippers on the recommendation of a friend. Excellent decision! Everyone completely enjoyed their meal and the decision to dine on the deck overlooking the river was the best idea ever. This is a off the main street in town, but well worth looking for. Order the Crab Cakes... you won't be disappointed!

We happened on Skipper's by chance during an outing from St. Simon's Island. Two of us had lunch. Hubby had shrimp platter and I had crab cake. We live on the Gulf coast and eat plenty of sea food, and this was right up with the absolute best we have experienced. Will definitely make plans for a return visit before... More

Excellent food. Cute place with a local look. We both had shrimp which was local, and I added clams and mussels. Excellent! Do order a side of collards, fantastic. Don't miss this place. But don't walk from the pier to the front door passing the back entrance of the kitchen. A horrible mess is to be seen. After retiring from... More

While it is a little drive off of the interstate, this is a perfect place to grab a bite and experience the lowcountry views. Set on the Darien river, the local shrimp boats and docks are as pleasing to the eye as the food was to the palate. Enjoyed a fresh caught blackened grouper sandwich with all the trimmings. The...

The fried shrimp was good and the Charlie's crab stew was very good. The food was a bit pricey. After dinner, we enjoyed walking on the deck area and taking pictures of the river and boats.

Our family stops by here everything we pass it on I95 on vacation. It's like a scene from Forrest Gump where the shrimp boats sit right outside the restaurant. The seafood and sides are great and even though I'm not a big fan of calamari I love their's and it is the best I've ever tasted. Prices are good and... More

We saw a billboard and good reviews for this restaurant on our way to a vacation in Florida. We could not have been more happy with the food and service. Plus it is beautifully located on a boardwalk with views of the river and fishing boats. It seems to be an old, established local place where lots of locals eat.... More

We are at Skippers our first night in Darien.The food was excellent. I had never tasted Georgia shrimp, but they are mighty fine! Overall, a great, casual waterfront experience.

Been here forever and serves some of the best local seafood offerings you will ever have. Worth the drive. Dress is casual and bring an appetite as the portions are generous. Cost is reasonable.
