My husband and I would go several times a year. This year we went in June, we were told the crabs were from Texas, and that the soda drinks they were using was a generic brand when I complained about the taste, tea was watery. We love the area but will not be back to the Pier.
It's nice and improving, in my experience. I have gone about 2-3 times a year for most of the last 15 years or so, back to the days when Skippers Pier was closed in the winter. Food is good and imaginative. Nice kids menu and service is family-friendly. (There is a great play area in the front with a big sandbox and wooden climb-on pirate ship -- kids love it.) In the past, service seemed slow sometimes, but it is excellent so far this year. I have read some of the other reviews. Prices high? They do not strike me as excessively so. Definitely not high compared to DC restaurants. Reservations and waits during peak times? Don't know. I usually go during off-peak times. (I was recently told the policy is to accept reservations only for group of 15 or more.) The atmosphere is great and unmatched anywhere in DC, which is why I take the 45-minute drive from DC to Deale.
Skippers is actually great. The chef/owner John Kozik is really passionate about his food and we really enjoy the simplicity of his dishes and the freshness. Great fish specials. You will not find any waterfront dining as good as his in the area. He has only been opened for a little over a year. Think some understanding and patience is helpful in circumstances where waitstaff is obviously overwhelmed. Since it is so good and the view is wonderful, it gets slammed particularly on the weekends. I understand the frustration-particularly if one drove a ways, of a long wait, but give it a try again. Its a great place. I give it it 5 stars-the button for 5 stars doesn't work.
Has potential but as locals we have gotten burned quite a few times - poorly trained wait staff, overcooked spring rolls, slow service. Nice for a beer on the dock on a sunny afternoon. Outside play area is great for families just wish they would get the food and service quality up to a better standard.
