Very generous portions with the lobster salad sandwich. Huge solid pieces of lobster with minimal mayonnaise. The chowder was rich and thick. Others enjoyed scallops and tuna. Nice view of water.

The food, atmosphere, water view and service are always top notch at The Skipper in South Yarmouth. The Skipper has some of the finest seafood on Cape Cod, like Hurricane Bob's scallops, their famous chowder, yellow-fin tuna, salmon, Lobster Roll Supreme, lobster of all kinds and excellent prime rib and steaks for the land lubbers. One can eat outside under... More

Sick on the deck & order the CHOWDAH! Food was delicious, service was great & prices were fair. If you ate too much you can take a walk on the beach across the street.

We absolutely love this place. When we are fortunate enough to visit the Cape, this is our go to spot. We've eaten lunch and dinner here and my favorite dish is always the whole belly clams. Once you have them, you won't bother ordering them anywhere else because these are absolutely the best anywhere. On our last trip I think... More

We ate here almost every day and we had something different and delicious each time. Great Menu. Seafood for me, and all kinds of other great meals for the kids and wife.

From our hotel We were able to walk along the beach to this restaurant. We went twice in late August. Both times friendly service. The best fried belly calms ever. Not too greasy. Great kids meals. The wait staff goes above and beyond. Kids loved getting ice cream after - fun flavors.

This restaurant is along the waterfront, near the beaches of So. Yarmouth. It has a fairly good view of the ocean. The food is very good. The wait staff is very attentive. We would recommend this restaurant anytime, but especially in the summer.

We went off season in Mid May. We enjoyed a wonderful meal. They have an upstairs outdoor, covered patio. It was a little cold windy for us, but I'm sure is amazing on a gorgeous summer day. There's an ice cream shop attached to this place. Very convenient.

We've watched this place go downhill. It started strong but hasn't maintained it's quality. When reasonable complaint was made the staff pointed out, "it's real seafood, what do you expect?" I've been eating seafood since I was kid. All types. Maybe they may get the frozen fish sticks right.
