Fodor's Review

This upscale take on the fish camp theme lies at the foot of a public dock on the Darien River, where working shrimp boats moor. It has a beautiful courtyard pond and an open-air oyster bar. Popular menu items include Georgia white shrimp, ribs, and fried flounder. There's usually a wait on weekends, so get there early. At the southern end of Darien, turn right at Broad just before the river bridge, then take the first left down to the waterfront.

Down By The River

Skipper's Fish Camp is much more than a "fish camp"....try oyster bar, try outside dining, try the freshest and best shrimp you've ever tasted, try made on-site bar-b-que, try a place that I return to again and again. Skipper's is the place I talk all guests when visiting south Georgia. (when you live near the beach you have lots of guests, friends and family.) I love the casual décor and ambiance. The historic downtown of Darien, GA, provides

a perfect setting. Skipper's deck provides the perfect place to view unbelievable sunsets. And, Skipper's keeps the beer cold and the side items interesting.

Colorful Ambiance

On my way from Florida up to Atlanta for business, I came across this amazing little seafood grill in quaint Darien, Ga. I know close to nothing about the town except that it is a very historical place known as the "Hidden Gem of the Golden Isles." I came across Skippers Fish Camp when I got into town and decided to give it a try. It was an unusually warm February day so I decided to dine outside. The restaurant is right on the river so I had a gorgeous

view! To add to my incredible atmosphere, I received excellent service, food and friendly banter. I am so excited I gave this place a try! I have already spread the word to family and friends in hopes of passing on this magnificent experience. I highly recommend Skippers Fish Camp to all!!
