“Nice view, and makes you feel like your on vacation.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 April 2014

A great place with a view. Ask to be seated on the second floor for a ocean view, which is across the street. A little tight, as they squeeze people in. And it is popular with the tourists, and the prices are a little higher here than in other places with the same quality food. But it is a place that you visit and makes you feel lie your on vacation.

“Lobster roll!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is where I go when I want the most delicious lobster roll on Cape Cod! They come in two sizes, and the large one easily makes two meals. The other food at The Skipper is also delicious, and the prices are very reasonable. Proximity to the beach makes for a nice place to take a walk after dinner, too!

“The wife loves the scallop salad”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 4 March 2014

The staff is always friendly pleasant and very efficient. You can eat upstairs and have a great view or downstairs. An ice cream stand outside is a great way to end the evening. Portions are large and price is reasonable. We often cook at home but when we go out we do like to come over and see Alan and his crew.
