Business Description

Located in Tampa, Florida, Skipper's Smokehouse is a must-visit destination for those who love seafood, bars, and smokehouse cuisine. Founded by three Air Force buddies who found themselves stationed in Alaska, they vowed to get as far away from there as possible. They achieved that goal and created one of the hottest dining and music spots in the Tampa Bay area.

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. 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, they can do it all. To complement their full-service catering, Skipper's also offers their 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.

Skipper's Smokehouse has grown from a small smokehouse takeout operation with a Sunday jam to a full-service restaurant and purveyor of world-class music. Catering manager Vicky Dodds was just starting in the kitchen at that time. In 1984, Tom convinced General Manager Bonnie O'Connor to leave another oyster bar to work at Skipper's. She's still here, but the rival bar is long gone. Bar and service personnel include many long-term employees.

Visitors to Skipper's Smokehouse can expect a warm and welcoming atmosphere with a unique blend of divey, classy, and casual ambience. The food is wonderful and well-priced, the staff is fantastic, the beer is cold and cheap, and the place has a cool vibe kinda dive in the front beach party in the back. The menu offers a variety of seafood and smokehouse cuisine that is sure to please every palate.

If you're in the Tampa Bay area and looking for a great time, make sure to add Skipper's Smokehouse to your list of must-visit destinations.
