We took our shrimp and other seafood down to the Cadillac Square park. Skinner's supplied all the sauce and napkins we needed. The shrimp were the freshest I'd ever eaten. You'll need the napkins.

This is a GREAT place to find fresh seafood. You can get it raw or steamed. If you are going for dinner, GO EARLY as they will be closed by about 6 PM

A must stop for us every time we come to the island -- fresh seafood steamed with corn and red potatoes - only eight dollars --We ordered the Royal Red Shrimp -- remember this is not a restaurant only to go orders

This is a popular place to get steamed seafood that was literally just caught the night before. They serve it by the pound, so just peruse the menu, call for the market rate, and tell them what time you want to pick it up. Just be aware it's all carry out; no dine in. We got food here two nights... More

Each time we visit Dauphin Island, our first stop on the way to our house is always Skinner's. In five minutes, we can carry out steamed-to-order gulf shrimp! We pull up to our house, unpack the car, ice down the shrimp, and kick back on the back porch to watch the sunset! An easy first night meal!

We read the reviews for Skinner's and wow, they were spot on. The steamed shrimp was really good. Got two pounds of shrimp and coleslaw for $29.00. Great buy and wonderful down home folks who run this family owned walk-in.

The shrimp plate is perfect! We decided on one each of the gulf shrimp and Royal reds and shared. Prepared in a timely manner and back to the motel with hot dinners. Both shrimp are tasty with the Royal Reds having a more lobster like taste.

When we visit Dauphin Island, we always go to Skinner's and get them to steam fish, shrimp, and scallops for a picnic. Perfect.

This seafood market is a great place to buy fish, shellfish, etc. Their seafood bisque became my favorite lunch. You can buy fish to cook at home or order the steamed plate which has been mentioned times. Simple preparation with your chouce of spiciness. So nice not to have everything fried!
