Let’s get one thing straight right away: Skipper’s knows fresh seafood. In fact, if there’s one place in the Triangle that’s “money” every single time, it’s this award-winning counter-service eatery in Apex.
Whether you choose the remarkable fried cod or flounder sandwich or scrumptious large shrimp platter, you’ll get plenty of food that’s as fresh as you’ll find anywhere around here. Oh yeah, it’s also cooked to order as soon as you place it.
Like fish tacos? Then you can’t go wrong with two flour tortillas stuffed with tempura-battered cod, house-made cabbage cilantro salad and pico de gallo, plus a tangy white sauce that are worth the price of admission (the fish taco plate comes with Mexican rice and a drink for just $6.99).
It’s also worth mentioning here that you’d be hard-pressed to find better hushpuppies than Skipper’s serves, so be sure not to miss out on these pieces of fried golden goodness that will melt in your mouth.
Service at Skipper’s is friendly and accommodating. These guys take their food seriously, even if the décor is super-casual and the cutlery is plastic.
One more tip: Try the lobster bisque, which is the best I’ve ever tasted. Just one more reason to sail on over to Skipper's.
