My husband had fried oysters. I had gumbo. We enjoyed the view, the tasty food and the friendly/efficient service.
The Yardarm is a nice little family-owned/operated restaurant located on the Fairhope Municial Pier. Before committing, we polled a couple coming out, and they gave it high marks, so we gave it a try. I had the fried shrimp platter which was great and I thought that the prices were reasonable.

Had dinner at the family owned Yardarm Restaurant in Fairhope, Alabama! Friendly service, enjoyable dinner and beautiful sunset! I decided to go for the fried seafood platter and truly enjoyed it! Well prepared and tasty! Recommend highly!
I had fried whole flounder and my wife had fried shrimp. Both meals were great! Next time I will try the flounder broiled. The restaurant is on the pier. The setting is pleasant and family friendly. It was a little crowded for a romantic place with the wife, but the food is fine.
If you're in the mood for a large platter of fried seafood then this is your place. The setting is on a pier in Mobile Bay. The outdoor seating is fun. The staff are as friendly as can be. I love this place when I'm craving a large plate of fried shrimp.
I hate giving bad reviews but this place is really just not good . The only great thing about this place is the view of sunset . Would recommend going and having a glass of wine and watching the sunset ... But eat elsewhere .....food is bland , cheaply prepared and the service is slow.
So glad we took a local gentleman's advice to eat here! Beautiful sunset, fabulous crab stuffed flounder, gumbo and fried chicken. We just happened to be there on THEIR 40th anniversary and loved meeting the family and learning about the restaurant!
What a great view!! Good fried shrimp. Definitely recommend this place. This is a family owned place that reflects the family love for the business. It's pronounced" Yard arm" named after part of a boat. Nice way to enjoy the scenery and have a great meal!
Restaurant is located on the Fairhope Municipal pier. Decor doesn't seem to have been updated during the 40 years the restaurant has been operating-but that was actually part of the charm to me-The restaurant matriarch in her late 80's in still making the gumbo (very good) and seating and checking out customers. Fried shrimp excellent!
