See what some other folks had to say….
Local joint, great for families with kids! The food was good, service equally good and everyone had a good time. I does get a little crowded so come early!”
“Great Food priced very reasonably, quaint atmosphere”
My family and I ate here on our last night of vacation. We wished we had found it earlier! The food was terrific, they had a diverse kid’s menu, the beers on tap were a great variety, and their signature drink, “The Rock Harbor” was delicious. I wish I had taken down the ingredients to make it at home. I ordered a lobster roll and received the largest roll I have ever seen. No filler, all lobster and huge pieces. I had to eat half of it with a fork just to be able to pick it up and take a bite. We highly recommend this restaurant!
“Best Fried Oysters ever”
First time at the Yardarm. Stayed on the Cape during the off season and visited the Yardarm on the recommendation of a friend. I was not disappointed. The staff was attentive and the service spot on. The atmosphere was casual, warm and friendly. Fried oysters were sweet and cooked perfectly, the best I have ever had, and I am picky about oysters being cooked properly. I would recommend the Yardarm without question and will be going back on our next visit to the Cape. Joe R. / Lynn, MA
Had an awesome dinner at the Yardarm. Onions strings were excellent, grilled chicken tender and perfectly cooked. Presentation was equal a fine dining restaurant. Service was top notch, not rushed or left sitting at the table waiting, just right. Owner, Carol, was present and involved greeting people by name and making sure they were happy.
“A very special Valentine’s menu”
The food at the Yardarm just gets better and better. We went on Valentine’s Day, and the special menu was indeed special! My seared scallops with parmesan risotto and grilled vegetables were perfectly caramelized, sweet and fresh. My companion’s seafood scampi was equally delicious and he took half home.
I had fun here with my mom for lunch. It was fun that they have sports decorations and TVs showing sports and HGTV. Wait staff was friendly and nice. Great burger! Good place for locals.
“My Dad’s ‘Go To!’ Spot in Orleans”
Love coming here with my Father- Burger Specials, fairly priced drinks, great and friendly staff…and home of the infamous ‘Arts Stuffed Quahog’, my favorite thing on the menu. This is a great place for a quieter meal, even during the busy season…much more locals in here then screaming babies and tourist crowds. Great food!
“My New England Visit”
This is a well-run restaurant. I own two restaurants in Florida and the owner was working hard, all the employees were helping each other, not to mention, the food was excellent! I was staying at the Cove Motel, and they recommended this restaurant, and they were not wrong. If you’re ready for a good meal, it’s a sure bet.
We happened to stumble in on prime rib night. I had the small cut prime rib, which was tender and very tasty, just as it should be! My wife had the fish and chips; it was delicious, one of the best she has had.
“Best Clams in a Long Time”
We stumbled upon this place while on the road. Absolutely packed, line of people waiting. Tables were jammed together, so loud we could hardly chat. Staff was friendly and running their tails off! Food was very good, best clams we’d had in a very long time. Obviously, a favorite among the locals. If you want a break from the high-end tourist spots, check this out!
“Good Food at a Good Price”
You cannot go wrong at the Yardarm. The seafood is fresh, and for landlubbers, there are great burgers and other pub fare. The prices are consistently lower here than at other area restaurants and the food is just as good, if not better. A couple of things to keep in mind, the restaurant can get crowded early, especially when there is a baseball game or when it’s prime rib night (Mondays and Thursdays); The bar is small so you may need to wait for your table outside. I make sure to come here every time I visit the Cape.
