Really fabulous fried seafood plate with the largest shrimp and scallops I have ever seen. Tasty clams and 2 big pieces of fish. No oil flavor and so crispy. I've lived in New England my whole life and this was the best I have had. Nice menu that also had more contemporary cuisine so not just fried food. Lobster roll... More

My wife and I came here for dinner last week. We sat on the deck upstairs. It was very nice. Atmosphere was great up there. I recommend that over sitting indoors. My wife started with the mussels in a thai curry sauce. They were amazing. I had their fried calamari. It was also incredible. Calamari was very tender. For our... More

If you like loud places to eat then this would be your place. We could not even hear what the waitress was saying nor couple me and my hubby have a conversation because of the noise. However the food was great. Best clam chowder ever and that's why they get a 2 rate otherwise a 1. The picture they advertise... More

Very good fish and chips, but the Black Cat (Hannis wins on chowdah, sorry). This is the only restaurant on this particular stretch of the Yarmouth coast, but it is well worth the wait. Hold out for the upper deck - great ocean view, lovely sunset.

We ate here Tues. Sept.9,2014. One of the best meals we had on the Cape. The seafood scampi over angelhair was to die for. Excellent friendly staff. Don"t miss this place,!

Great Place! Went here with my husband for an early dinner at about 545-6, we just beat the dinner rush, there was only a 15 minute wait for a seat on the deck. The food was excellent. I can see why the chowder is award winning, I am normally not a fan of the thicker chowders but the flavor was... More

This was our second visit to The Skipper. I ordered the Skipper Chioppini, a bouillabaise-type fish stew which included the works--half a lobster, littlenecks, scallops, cod, etc. in a savory broth. The seafood was a tad overcooked (probably because they were very busy, even on the Thursday evening after Labor Day). My husband enjoyed a delicious selection of Wellfleet oysters... More

Skippers overlooks the yarmouth town beach and has a wonderful top deck for dining. This restaurant is well worth the trip and sometimes the wait to get a seat. If you arrive after six thirty, be prepared to wait....it doesn't matter the day of the week, skippers is a must stop restaurant. The chowder was thick and just spicy enough... More
