Skippers is a seafood restaurant right on the water in the quaint village of Stonington, Ct. Views over the water and boating just don't get any better than this. Lively place with music, great bar, and well above average food, treatment, and servive. A must...More

Quite disappointing - I'm sure I remember this place being better. Plenty of glowing reviews, so perhaps I found them on a bad day. Came for a late midweek lunch with family, whilst my son sailed a nearby regatta. The hostess was only in attendance...More

The food was very good. Eating on a dock is always fun. Order the warm lobster roll on thick slices of toast, with warm gruyere. It's fantastic. The mussels we shared as an appetizer were done well, with a great garlic sauce.
