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 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... More

The great view is matched by the great quality of the food. Service is always great with only the noise as a negative.

This was our first visit to the Skipper - the brief wait was worth it. The food was excellent and the atmosphere quite lovely - but two things in particular made this a close-to-perfect experience: our server and the kitchen's accommodation for 'special needs' diets. When I told our waitress that I had a severe tree nut allergy, she immediately... More

Dinner stop on our bus trip to Cape Cod. They advertise as being Triple Crown Chowder Champions and it is easy to see say why. We had chowder several other places on the trip but Skipper blew them all out of the water. Awesome. Also had to indulge in a lobster while there. Great fun watching a bunch of rookie... More

Was not overly impressed. Food was alright, nothing to claim, hey I ate seafood on CapeCod. Except for the Chowder which was very good. Prices were a little high for the amount of food provided. Overall, I would likely try something else and skip the skipper next time around.

We were out exploring and came across Skippers. We were seated immediately, (it IS October) our waitress gave us a good run down of the daily specials, of which I chose Lobster Ravioli & Lobster chowder. The Ravioli could have used a bit more sauce, it was a tad dry. The Chowder was delicious! I usually love a good lobster... More
