The hubs and I took a drive up just to check out the Calais area. We stopped and Yancy's for lunch, and split a buffalo chicken pizza. Oh. My. Goodness. We asked for extra jalapenos, which they provided, and the pizza was hot, gooey and delicious. This was without a doubt one of the best pizzas we've ever had and... More

This is a nice place with the second best pizza I've had in north America. I highly recommend this place. Getting a good pizza in Canada and New England has been quite hard for me the European, but this place fixed that in a heartbeat.

Yancy's has an extensive menu, and most of the offerings are very good to excellent. Service can be slow in peak periods, and there is a short wait for a table sometimes as well. The restaurant is fairly new (a couple of years old), and the parking lot is (finally) paved. Note that when the restaurant is full, the parking... More

Loved dining at the pub tables as there was more elbow room. Had the best hamburger I have eaten all summer here in Downeast Maine, cooked to perfection as was my partner's and we both like them done at opposite ends of the spectrum. Food was served in a timely fashion by dedicated server. Staff makes you feel welcome and... More

The food is good enough but aside from the pizza (too much garlic and I love garlic) the food was pretty ordinary. We would eat there agin but never make a special trip.

I always seek out the local, independent places when travelling or at home, instead of the franchise chain places that cater to the Holiday Inn - show me the same thing no matter where I am set - and sometimes I'm rewarded for my derring-do, and sometimes not. We tried a place up the road for our late lunch first,... More

Very unpleasant experience. Ordered a large appetizer of chicken, waitress took the order of everyone else at the table and came back to me, and I said "No, I'm just having the chicken." After she brought out the chicken appetizer that I ordered, she brought a chicken basket. SAME THING but with fries and cole slaw. After I told her... More

Now there is a McDonalds, BK, and subway in Calais but we wanted a restaurant after driving 6 hours. So we tried Yancys and was very satisfied with the quantity, quality, and price of the food we ordered. I had homemade mac and cheese, my husband had a turkey club with homemade onion rings. Everything served us was hot, cooked... More
