which you can enjoy best from the large upstairs porch. The food is very good but also pricey for a retiree. I suggest you try lunch when it is cheaper and far less crowded. We wont even try a weekend night in summer. One time we ordered our fish and chips to go and enjoyed them in the lovely gazebo in the beach park. Check the parking lot in back to judge the crowd. They also have little ice cream stand around back which really is great. On a warm night it is the perfect place to go in the evening , get your cone or sundae and eat them on the benches that line the ocean in the parker River beach. No cost to park there after 5 PM or after labor day. I have heard from locals that they have a good assortment of wines and liquors served downstairs.

We wanted some good seafood with a nice view so chose to return to Skipper Restaurant. We got there around 6:15 and were seated immediately upstairs. while it was a little cool in the evening they did have the heaters going which made a big difference. Our seafood dishes were very good and fairly large portions. I'm sure we will return during future visits to that area of the Cape.

We look forward to visiting The Skipper whenever we are on the cape but this time we were very disappointed. We called from the parking lot and the girl said about 20-25 minute wait for downstairs but upstairs we could be seated right away. We did go upstairs but we weren't seated right away, in fact we were totally ignored. There was another couple waiting and they said the hostess did acknowledge them but we never saw the hostess. We waited and waited but the hostess never appeared. I understand that restaurants are busy however the hostess should be there to acknowledge customers. If we are ignored in restaurants we leave, plain and simple.

This is just across the street from our hotel. The food is always tasty with a friendly staff, large servings and good beer.

We had dinner at The Skipper on our vacation we meet some friends there who live on the cape and have been there before. The meal was great. The staff was great also. We had really good time and really good foo.We ordered about 4 appetizers and 4 entrees . The Wellfleet oysters were so fresh I wish I was still there so I could go back and have them again. Give it a try ,very good place!
