The Yardarm remains a low-key "old Cape" oasis for casual dining. Good food at fair prices, consistent and friendly service, and reasonably priced drinks. This place is neither fancy, nor trendy-and that is what makes it so appealing to so many. The menu truly does have something for everyone and all of it is turned out fresh and promptly. It... More

We are always glad to get such nice reviews, as we truly are a low-key "Old Cape" kind of place. We enjoy our local customers everyday, as well as our seasonal visitors and new-bees. As newer owners (2 years this January); we pride ourselves in keeping the same Yardarm atmosphere, while at the same time adding some new additions. We... More

Looking for a interesting place for lunch and we found it at the Yardarn. At first it looked like a place for the "good ole boys " to hang out and to some regards it is because the beer and the lunch food was great. Service was fast and four of us all enjoyed our lunch. After ordering a Beer,... More

My partner and I went for a quick dinner the other night after a day of shopping off Cape. The service was quick and friendly and the food was great! Decent prices for the food too!

Went with friends who have been there before. All of us had the fried whole belly clam platter. I usually try to avoid fried foods, but these were delicious and the batter was very light and not at all greasy!

We always know we can count on The Yardarm when traveling through Orleans both on and off season. We appreciate the varied menu and reasonable prices. The food is consistently good and the atmosphere is friendly and welcoming. We've never been disappointed and we have recommended this place to several people.

A local recommended this spot to us and we were so glad. All homemade cooking and very homey! I had the shaved prime rib sandwich with au jus on the side and it was awesome. French fries are to die for, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.

While the bar and restaurant were busy, we did get a small table for two. It was very cold due to a/c system blowing on us. The waitress did lower the a/c immediately. The specials menu had many choices. The dinner we had was excellent. We did have to wait 10 minutes, after our dishes were removed, to get the... More

First night on the Cape we come here for our fix of fish and chips. Really fresh cod, cooked just right. (Nice and juicy, not over cooked). Great fries, and Cole slaw also. Only negatives are the tight parking, and it's very noisy inside.

A rainy day. Place was packed. Understaffed. Folks at next table waited 15+ minutes without even getting menus, and finally walked out. We had a 30 min wait for 2 chicken breast sandwiches.

This is an interesting review. Our customers are given menus (both the current specials and regular menu) as soon as they are seated. We have the same amount of staff every day, (two waitress for the dining room; hostess; bartender and bar back). Our food comes out very quickly (never 30 minutes), and our bread is brought in fresh daily).... More

Description
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!
