On recommendation from hotel we dined at Skipper’s. The crab stew was very good with a kick. The fried shrimp are excellent. Plump and just a light batter. Next time we will do the shrimp platter. Friendly staff too.

We thoroughly enjoyed Skippers! We traveled through Darien on our way between Savannah & Jacksonville in January, 2014. Travel Rt 17; avoid 95! Very fresh food! Deliciously cooked and friendly service.

My husband and I split the Captains Platter which was excellent and enough really good seafood for both of us. Our server was courteous and efficient. The view of the Darien River was amazing. Would be a frequent guest if I lived closer.

Yes, take I-95 North. Take exit 42 and take a right when you get to the end of the ramp. This is Georgia 99. In about a mile it will end on US-17. Turn left and drive North a few miles until you get to Darien. As you come... More
