It is a very unusual restaurant in Tampa. It is not a typical restaurant but they have good variety and good seafood items. They serve rare food such alligator nuggets and many more. I told you, it is very unusual. The place is not air conditioned and it gets very warm when the place is getting crowded. Ive been here with some friends to try out their haute cuisine but we decided not to stay long because of the hot atmosphere. Skippers Smokehouse is only good for an outdoor venue of entertainment. Hope the owner will improve the place

We Smoke Everything!

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.
