We know that when we get seafood from Skinners it is always fresh. They steam their shrimp, to order, perfectly with corn, potatoes and Conechca sausage. Delicious!

We were in town for just a few days over this past weekend and really enjoyed the food here. You can buy fresh seafood to take homes or you can also have them steam it for you plain or with light, medium, heavy, blackened, garlic...More

Spending a couple of weeks vacationing on the island, our best dinners came from Skinners steamer! Go there, pick up some fresh shrimp, sausage, corn and potatoes - then enjoy! Awesome and Easy!

Take out seafood freshly steamed while you wait. Restaurant is always clean, well lit, and the service is great. Seafood is right in front of you so you see what you are buying. Prices are good. We get Shrimp, Red Snapper, and their seafood Bisque.

I was kinda mislead about the place. This is more of a market. They will steam things for you there and you can take it to go. I was really hoping for " a fat girl meal." ( aka fried seafood and sit down )...More

Fresh seafood!!! We love this place. You can can call in or just stop by. We usually buy a bout 5lbs of shrimp, take them home and grill but they also offer to steam them for you.

Great options of fresh local caught fish, shrimp etc. They will steam to order or you can take home to cook. Great sides of corn, potatoes and andouille or conecuh sausage. Service is wonderful and quality impeccable.

Walking from the ferry landing will take some time. Distance, I would estimate, is probably close to 2 miles.

Pretty sure they're open year round, just close earlier after Labor Day throughout the winter months. Go to their website to see exact hours each day. Always closed on Tuesdays.
