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.

We went on prime rib night and of course my husband got the large portion. He said it was delicious. I got the seafood casserole which was also very good with lots of shrimp, scallops and sole. A favorite place for the locals.

Had the roast beef special the other night and it was terrific. My wife ordered the fish and chips and said it awesome. A local favorite that we keep coming back to.

Yes the food is decent, but if you don't even get it in front of you, what's the point. This may be one of Orleans' local favorites but they don't seem to want tourists to come at all. My daughter asked for a bun to...More

The restaurant has a nice pub feel to it. The service by the staff and owners is outstanding. The menu choices includes really good daily specials and menu dishes.

Truth be told, we did not eat here but every local and every visitor raved about this place-the hotel we stayed at has there season ending party here and they know a good place. Was next on our list and will visit next time.

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...More

It does't look like much from the outside, and inside, it's a bit better than you'd expect. The Yardarm is a local pub, with a standard menu - albeit with a fair amount of fried seafood options. Our fried clams were pretty decent (but not...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!
