We happened upon this place and went in very close to closing time but was still greeted and served with great friendliness . We weren't super hungry so ordered crab cakes, and New England clam chowder, seafood cocktail, and Cesar salad . Everything was very fresh, hot and absolutely delicious and presented beautifully !

Much more casual than I expected, but a bit too loud for an evening out with friends you want to catch up with. If you are there just to eat, have a few drinks - then no problem!

We have been on and off customers of this neighborhood gem. Food has always been good and very consistent, but never an awesome experience. Well, I now stand corrected.

There are different areas in which customers are seated; the main dinning area and an enclosed outside patio. Both are fine; outside is a little more noisier as you might guess

there is no better fresh seafood than the Yacht Club, period. The preparations and presentations are outstanding and the service has always been great. We are so lucky to have this restaurant in our city
