What a treat! We ordered dinner to go for 15. Shrimp 3 different spice combos, fish, corn, potatoes and we baked their hush puppies. It was all delicious. Order in the morning for afternoon pickup so you won't be disappointed. Parking can be tight.

We stopped in a Skinner's our last morning there, and bought fresh shrimp to take home. Hospitality was great. They even carried our cooler filled with shrimp and ice out to the car for us.
