Diverted from I-95 to look for some seafood along the Georgia Coast. Just north of Brunswick, on the river in Downtown Darien, this place offers inside and outside dining. There was live music (pretty decent!) yet it was quiet enough for conversation. Met a retired NewYorker who shared pictures of his vegetable garden with me, and talked about what it... More

It took over 10 minutes for someone to come to our table to get our drink/food order. Granted, the waitress said she'd be "right with us" but that was 10 minutes ago. Another waitress came by and said she would be helping her co-worker, and took our orders. There was another table next to us that was meeting with the... More

This was our first visit to this restaurant. We had crab cakes shrimp and soup. Staff was friendly. Service was quick and food was excellent. The She Crab soup was the BEST we have ever had.

Very popular restaurant in Darien. My husband and I always enjoy dining there. Both the food and prices are very good. Service is also very good.

I visit Darien occasionally and always looked forward to going to Skippers. However this last time my fish was dry and tasteless, the beans unreadable. Too bad. It still has a fun view and hopefully they's pay some much needed attention to their food.

We ate here on a Sunday evening and had to wait about 20 minutes for a table. We ordered a dozen raw oysters for our appetizer. My wife had the Crab Cake combo with Scallops. I had ordered the Scallop Platter. Our sides were slaw, baked potato and the mac-n-cheese. The crab cake was bland, however the scallops were a... More

We happened upon this gem of a place at lunch time and were so glad we did. My boyfriend ordered the fish and grits. The fish was seasoned to perfection and the grits had cheese and bacon. I ordered the crab cake and it was big. It was loaded with crab meat and have very little filler. Both of our... More

Fresh shrimp, huge baked potato and fast service. No problem with that. Server was prompt and accurate Food seemed over priced for what you got -a few more hush puppies and a small side salad would have made the meal feel more complete. Table was sticky and ladies room was gross.

Returning home from FL and decided to take about a 10 min detour off of I-95. Glad we did. Something different, good food, and a nice view. The restaurant is on the river. You can sit inside or outside. The menu is limited if you're not a seafood eater (chicken and bbq). They do have a grilled or blackened chicken... More

We ate a late lunch at Skipper's and ate outside overlooking the river on January 11th. The crabcake and broiled shrimp were the best ever. The broiled scallops were also excellent. The outdoor seating was quite comfortable with temps in the low 70's.
