Ok so we all know this restaurant has great food. The lobster roll (supreme) best on the Cape and I've never had a bad meal there. Let's talk service because that's so important to my dining experience. Well the service was outstanding! Very attentive fast even though they were busy. No one was standing around with there hands in there... More

Loaded with large chunks of lobster. My husband had the Haddock casserole & said the sauce was delicious. we enjoyed our dinner very much, we sat on the open deck, it did have plastic on it because it was so windy, but still nice. Waitress was very accommodating.

Ate on the second floor - great view. Waitress Beth and bartender Larry were friendly and fun. Had Scallop roll that was to die for. Wife had fish sandwich which she loved. Prices were reasonable for Cape Cod in season. This place is a must every time we visit.

Went to eat dinner with 3 adult females and 4 kids. Walked over from beach hotel. I had a drink with me from my walk and didn't pass a garbage along the way, so brought my empty drink cup in and left it on the table. Our server and the manager decided we were all too drunk and wouldn't serve... More

We have been to this restaurant several times and have always had a great meal. We always take the longer wait at dinner and sit on the second floor where there is a nice view of the water. Staff was great, food very good, we will be back next time we are in the area!

I went on trip advisor and yet again wasn't disappointed. This restaurant was excellent! Our waitress Susan was great and gave many delicious recommendations. The fried clam chowder was out of this world. I would definitely recommend it to any one who likes chowder. Clam chowder ingredients without the cream then fried in a crispy coating. Then you can dip... More

We went knowing that the wait might be long but boy we got more then what we bargained for. We pulled in the parking lot on a very rainy Forth of July and put our name in. Got a pager and was told 40 minute wait. OK no problem we decided to go up to the bar to get a... More

We ended up at the Skipper after getting down to the Cape and we were starving. It was really busy but we were sat on the patio within 30 mins. The hostess and service were great. We had the clam chowder which was one of the best I have ever eaten. The kids got the baby back ribs which was... More
