Had a very nice family dinner. The chowder is a must and the drinks and great. Can get busy, however our wait was exactly what they stated.

They were very busy the night we visited but, we were seated relatively quickly and in spite of the crowds the service was very good and the food excellent. We both had the lobster roll - just perfect! We were too full for dessert!

The Skipper is an annual stop. Right on the beach in South Yarmouth. Clam Chowder and swordfish is my favorite order. The Skipper has won the Cape Cod Chowder Fest a number of times. Friendly staff, great drinks.
