General Info:

Skipper's Smokehouse has been flying in the face of convention since 1980.  The Skipper's legacy began when Air Force buddies purchased what is now one of the hottest dining and music spots in the Tampa Bay Area. The catering department is operated at the capable hands of Vicky Dodds, who has been on board since 1980. Starting out, reluctantly, at the demand of some of our regular restaurant customers who wanted us to cater their wedding, we found a needed service we could provide. (As a side note, Tom White is a notary public and occasionally performs weddings for our customers). From full service catering with all the elegance a wedding or Bar Mitzvah may command, to casual parties on our deck outside in the Skipperdome, to simple delivery or pickup, we can do it all. To compliment our full service catering, Skipper's also offers our licensed Talent Agency to provide top quality entertainment including, but not limited to, live blues, jazz, reggae, Calypso, steel drums, fire-eating limbo dancers, Latin, zydeco, rockabilly, variety, D.J.'s, clowns, magicians, face painters, props and roaming entertainers.

Great casual venue

I have been a patron of Skippers for over 20 years, and have even taken my children to quite a few concerts. We've always had a good time and enjoyed the food. It's a great break away from the mainstream.

Curtis needs to catch up

Skippers is every good thing that has been said by the other reviewers. But the main review by Curtis keeps talking about a sand dance floor. Man, if you think Skippers still has a sand dance floor, you have not been there in a long time. The only exposed dirt left is between the tables and the rest of the place has had a deck for as long as any regular can remember.

Outstanding. Period.

Good service, GREAT food. Try the smoked mullet-hands down the best in Tampa Bay. It is a dry rub that, though it is a smoked fish, it is suprisingly moist, with a full flavor. It is served with a side of BBQ sauce that reminded us of the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse NY (a national Landmark). Back tothe fish-The meat literally falls off the bone, and one fish with the two sides is a great meal. And a quick word about the... view more

Good Food, Great Music

If you like seafood, gator, and burgers with an eclectic mix of servers and patrons; then this North Tampa institution is for you. What's even better is you can catch a show in the "Skipper Dome" outdoor venue. The music runs from the blues to folk, from hard rock to lounge. Check out there website for their menu and current show listing.

Great place for a fun casual night

Go for the music, not the food. For first timers this place looks like it should be condemned. You can dress as casual as you want and no one will notice. They have very unusual bands that are always a lot of fun. I would highly recommend eating somewhere else before you get there. Just about everything is battered and deep fried. Heart attack in a paper tray. The onion rings are still good.

Unscrupulous bartender

Great place to hang out as long as you don't mind being shortchanged by the smarta$$ bartender outside. Gave him a twenty and he gave me change for a ten, looked at me funny when I called him out.
