All selections are greatly overpriced, and not much available for those who eat healthy. Any exceptions to fried foods are extra charges. Grandma's gumbo was certainly more pleasing than her attitude when we inquired if they honored vets with a discount on Venteran's day 2014! Our first and last viist

The food was excellent the view from the eat on porch was spectacular. The service was good. This was our first time to Fairhope and this was a great first place to eat here. The restaurant has been around for quite some time could use some updating but once on the porch you don't care. We will be back.

Great view of Mobile Bay on city pier. Menu is mostly fried seafood which is cooked using fresh oil a big plus for taste. Gumbo worth trying is made from old recipe. Only draw back is distance from parking.

On our way into town stopped by the pier and found the Yardarm. Sat outside with a beer and tried a bowl on Dot's gumbo. She's been making it there for 40 years. It was great! Ryan our server was very helpful with tips on the area.

My wife and I were looking for a place to eat, "on the bay" and this restaurant was recommended. The restaurant itself is located on the Fairhope Pier, and it's very nice to eat out over the water. The food itself is just average, as is the service. I probably would not eat here again.

This restaurant is part way down the Fairhope pier on Mobile Bay. You have a choice of sitting on the deck with a wonderful view of the marina, or inside if the weather is bad. The seafood is fresh and tastes delicious. The service is outstanding. A great place to relax and enjoy a terrific meal.

We went here on a lark after driving down to Fair Hope. The fish wash not fresh, the prices were too high for what you got and it was a bad experience. I have never given anyone 1 star before but wow

My wife and I have been to The Yardarm several times. While not fine dining, the seafood is always consistently prepared, whether fried or broiled. The atmosphere is unique, being midway on the Fairhope public pier. Great gumbo!

Food was great. Staff was very friendly. Don't be in a big hurry if here for dinner but staff and views on the pier made up for it. Definitely recommend.

This is out on the Fairhope Pier. The views from here are awesome. The food is decent but not out of the ordinary but the views and the walk down the pier more than make up for it.
