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.

One of the few restaurants on Cape Cod with an ocean view (believe it or not)! Eat upstairs and Larry the bartender will take excellent care of you. good spot.

Saw this restaurant when we were visiting the beach in South Yarmouth on the Cape. We were wanting a good fresh fish dinner so we decided to give it a try that night. Very good! Nice seaside ambience, very good food and good service. Between three of us we had the chowder, a lobster dish and haddock. All yummy!

Loud with screaming kids. Wine choices were lacking. Maybe because it was a bit "off season" for them?

I have eaten at the Skipper many times and I have never been disappointed. The service has always been very good. The food has ranged from good to great and the prices are average. The biggest attraction for me is the view of Nantucket Sound from upstairs.

good quality, good service, prices are ok and the restaurant has an upper floor, which seems to be open on sunny days.

Probably a really good restaurant but dining there on the night before they closed for the season was not a good idea

we like the upstairs enclosed deck or even better the upstairs lounge, fantastic drinks and food with attentative service not inexpensive but worth the price in every way the view of the beach doesn't hurt either
