Editorial fromThis is the most casual of casual restaurants, and if you're seeking out Skipper's for the first time, just roll down the car windows and follow the sound of music. No shirts, no shoes---no problem! Skipper's brings Gilligan's Island-style…

This is my favorite local hangout their sweet potato fries are yummy and the hot wings are delicious. The band's are unique and talented. The people (patrons and staff) are always down to earth and welcoming. Been going there for years. A Tampa staple!

Skipper's Smokehouse & Oyster is the best,unique! LOVE this place, too! It's been around forever and can't be beat when showing friends and family an authentic Tampa location. Very casual, good food and fun staff. Smoked mullet is good, as is everything else on the menu. Try the gator bites!

LOVE this place Good food and great music, wonderful venue for a live band. We have been here many times to see live music and never disappointed- you wont find another place like this. Sit among huge trees outside and watch your favorite band, this place is always packed but never seems too crowded. Good food inside at their restaurant, they even serve gator ;)

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.

Great local bar! I have lived in Tampa for over 30 years and have visited Skippers on many occasions. You can always find a GREAT local band, good food, and a comfortable atmosphere for a night of fun!

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.
