Great casual venue

I have been a patron of Skippers for over 20 years, and have even taken my children to quite a few concerts. We've always had a good time and enjoyed the food. It's a great break away from the mainstream.

Curtis needs to catch up

Skippers is every good thing that has been said by the other reviewers. But the main review by Curtis keeps talking about a sand dance floor. Man, if you think Skippers still has a sand dance floor, you have not been there in a long time. The only exposed dirt left is between the tables and the rest of the place has had a deck for as long as any regular can remember.

Outstanding. Period.

Good service, GREAT food. Try the smoked mullet-hands down the best in Tampa Bay. It is a dry rub that, though it is a smoked fish, it is suprisingly moist, with a full flavor. It is served with a side of BBQ sauce that reminded us of the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse NY (a national Landmark). Back tothe fish-The meat literally falls off the bone, and one fish with the two sides is a great meal. And a quick word about the hush-puppies-they melt in your mouth. Literally. Even the Ceasars salad was phenomenal. It was a perfect balance of greens and chicken, that left our salad expert speechless (and she has been with us for 11 years-I have never seen her rave about a salad like she did here. In 11 years.) On a Saturday night, the service was fast, food was hot and wait staff was very friendly. Of course, this isnt a ""five star restauraunt"", but for a place you can walk in with shorts and flip-flops, it deserves at least four stars.

Good Food, Great Music

If you like seafood, gator, and burgers with an eclectic mix of servers and patrons; then this North Tampa institution is for you. What's even better is you can catch a show in the "Skipper Dome" outdoor venue. The music runs from the blues to folk, from hard rock to lounge. Check out there website for their menu and current show listing.

Great place for a fun casual night

Go for the music, not the food. For first timers this place looks like it should be condemned. You can dress as casual as you want and no one will notice. They have very unusual bands that are always a lot of fun. I would highly recommend eating somewhere else before you get there. Just about everything is battered and deep fried. Heart attack in a paper tray. The onion rings are still good.

Unscrupulous bartender

Great place to hang out as long as you don't mind being shortchanged by the smarta$$ bartender outside. Gave him a twenty and he gave me change for a ten, looked at me funny when I called him out.
