A little short on the wine list, but oh, those fried crab claws. Great place to watch the sunset. The grandmother who works the register is a hoot.

What a beautiful spot. The restaurant is located on a pier in Mobile Bay.mit doesn't get any better than that. It's a family owned place where the staff is warm and friendly. The owner is an 87 year old lady who does some of the cooking, greets the customers, and rings up the bill. The food was delicious. The cole... More

If you want to enjoy Fair hope beach while you eat, this is good place to consider. We don't have many options there anyway, but staff is super friendly. They can deep dry anything for you. Coffee is really good, beyond my expectations. I took my dad as he was feeling hungry, he liked it well surprisingly. Located on bridge,... More

We didn't look up any reviews on Yardarm's before eating here for dinner while in Fairhope. The location of this restaurant is definitely unique. We were out for a stroll on the pier at dinnertime, and well, they have the monopoly of where to eat while in this particular location. We ate out on the deck; the weather was beautiful... More

Just wish the food was a bit better. But the view of sailboats on Fairhope-Mobile Bay is unparalleled.

Both my wife and I ordered the Catfish dinners. By the time we finished we both felt as if we had a bowl of cornmeal for dinner!!! The coleslaw had an awful taste that I could not get passed the first spoonful!!! A restaurant should not have "plastic" seating for adults. They should do away with some of the tables... More

Food was lacking any character. Service was good and timely. Atmosphere nice and over the water, couldn't ask for better location. Limited supply of Beer and Wine. Sorry to say would not recommend this to anyone.

While visiting the Pier and waiting for the sunset, I decided to venture into the Yardarm which is right in the middle of the Pier. The menu is small and most foods are deep fried. I hate to say it, but I was not impressed. I had the deviled crab and it was so dry that I could barely swallow... More
