We wanted a quick casual meal. However, the hostess seated us at a table for two that was placed directly in an aisle in very close proximity to large groups of other diners. We are used to tight quarters on the Cape at times, but...More

I am so sorry you were not able to get a larger table. Unfortunately, we are quite packed now during the season, and sometimes, the small tables for two are the only ones available. The tables in the back seat five, seven and only one...More

Prime rib special on mondays and Thursday's-great portions and very tasty! I got the fried cod and it was some of the best I'd ever eaten! Would definitely return.

We only wanted a light dinner on our first night on the Cape and were recommended this by our hotel. We had clam chowder, followed by a burger and fries and it was very good.

My family has been going here for years. The bisque and chowder are THE BEST. Good specials, big menu, family-friendly, very local spot, can get crowded in the summer.

Went here while vacationing in Orleans with my family. We stopped here for dinner before the Cape Cod Baseball game down the street. The food is good, the prices are reasonable and the service is friendly.

Delighted to see a seafood-tomato-pasta combo on the menu--and at an affordable price. We arrived at 5:30 p.m.--early in most places but peak dining time on the Cape--and were able to snag the last hightop for two. The place was packed, but service was prompt...More

Got there at 5 pm and seated right away. Been here before and tried it again. Same as recent years. All OK but nothing special. Server made the meal better but the club sandwich was fine but nothing special as compared to other local places....More

From what I know, the Yardarm was owned by the Sullys since 1972 & we purchased it in 2015 from them.

The Yardarm Restaurant is a small place with a big imprint. In the last decades we've prided ourselves on being the go-to meeting spot for locals in Orleans. On any given day, you'll find townsfolk like fisherman, physicians and plumbers all sharing stories over drinks or watching the Patriots. The Yardarm is a place where friends meet and where new friends are made.

A big reason for our popularity is our food. We have a variety of dishes in different styles, from steaks to Gumbos but there's no one else quite does fish like we do. In fact, the Yardarm is where the local fisherman go to eat. We even serve forgotten traditional favorites like Cod Cheeks.

Then more come in for the friendly service. Everyone from the owners down to the wait staff has made it their utmost priority to serve you well, and you'll definitely notice the smiles on our faces and attention to detail as you slowly realize like you're dining at a friend's place.

There's no where else quite like the Yardarm!
