Hungry fishermen are known to bend down by the waterside to let minnows, eager to escape life in a small pond, leap into their open mouths. Dine on a fish that made it to the big city with today's Groupon: for $5, you get $10 worth of seafood and drinks at Skippers Seafood and Chowder House. This Groupon is valid at the following Skippers locations: on Monroe Street in Spokane, on Division Street in Spokane, and on Hanley Avenue in Coeur d’Alene. Only the Division Street location in Spokane, however, offers a full menu with beer, wine, and gourmet burgers. This Groupon is valid for use in the drive-thru at the Coeur d’Alene location.
Using wrung-from-the-wild seafood, Skippers serves up made-to-order dishes to fill grumbling stomachs and silence attention-seeking appetites. Start with the creamy clam chowder nestled in a sourdough-bread bowl ($5.99), or opt for the three-piece signature fish and chips ($6.99), bringing together ocean life and potato in a hunger-satisfying harmony usually reserved for peanut jelly and butter. The three-piece cod ($8.25) is hand dipped in tempura for optimum crunching, while the fresh grilled halibut ($13.50) encourages tongue purring. Skippers also features salads, sandwiches, and a menu for kiddies, as well as sides such as hush puppies and shrimp. Enjoy nautical nourishment without having to buy your family’s ancient deep-sea diving helmet back from the iron grasp of the Internet with a meal at Skippers.
