Skipper's has grown from a small smokehouse takeout operation with a Sunday Jam to a full service restaurant and purveyor of world-class music. The menu focuses on Florida cuisine with tastes of the Caribbean and Louisiana. In addition to award-winning black bean gator chili, they serve alligator ribs and fried gator tail. Other Florida favorites include farm-raised catfish, grouper, oysters, clams and shrimp. Fresh catches vary and may include amberjack, shark, salmon, swordfish, tuna and more.
