Loved the grouper finger and oyster platter, both fried with hush puppies and slaw! Each had a Bud light, so glad they r serving beer and wine. We came via boat and parking at their courtesy dock was easy!

While waiting for a table, we got some beers from the bar. They were warm. After claiming a table it took 10 minutes to get it brushed off. It was still very dirty. 25 mins later, after asking twice for a server, we were given...More

Skogies has been around for a long time and has always been good but with a recent remodel it is awsome. They now have beer and wine and have added an outdoor bar with a great draft beer selection. They have added items to the...More

The food here is good. We've had the grouper, bbq, onion rings, hush puppies, fried pickles. They were all good. The servers are friendly and they allow your dogs.

We went for the Mother's Day Brunch and were not disappointed. I enjoyed the Crab Cake Benedict, cheese grits, fried fish, and more. Lovely place to enjoy a meal, looking over Lake Lanier.

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...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...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...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.
