No complaints on the food. The lobster roll was amazing. Oysters Rockefeller was great. The "chowdah" was exceptional. Definatly worth a stop. Just a little pricey.

Yes it’s a seasonal restaurant that closes in mid October and reopens in mid April. Very few restaurants stay open year round there but some do mostly chain or fast food places...

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.
