Best clam chowder. You can not find seafood equal to this restaurant in cape cod at nominal price. Wine is also not overpriced. Service is good

Response from dougfetter | Reviewed this property |
i do not feel that there are any good water views from Skipper's, handicapped or not. Skipper's is situated across a highway from a beach, which is on the water, but the restaurant itself is some distance from the water.
