Went with low expectations and had lovely meal

We had a starter salad, lovely, mozzarella sticks, deep fried, not to be recommended, and then my husband had a small delicious pepperoni pizza and their sphaggetti and meatballs was really delicious. Was hilarious as brought our own wine, but they did not have a corkscrew to open it, so my... read more

This was my 2nd visit, thinking maybe the 1st time was just a bad day for them. My 1st visit had me waiting about 45 minutes for a club sandwich. This time I ordered a grilled chicken Caesar salad and then waited about 40 minutes for it. While it did taste ok, it was served in a tiny bowl and... More

We went to this restaurant and were very pleased. I had the clubhouse platter, those with me had a hot turkey sandwich platter including a salad and the meatball soup. The club I shared as it was so filling. Everyone enjoyed their meals and will go back

We have been to Calais countless times, but we never tried Yancy's until recently. Overall we liked it. I ordered a stromboli that was very tasty and well cooked, and my wife tried the pizza, which she liked. Prices were very fair and the wait staff was very friendly. The decor is very "down home" farm style. I hear they... More

For years we have looked forward to eating at Yancy's on our annual trip to Maine. Last year I was a little disappointed by changes in the menu but still looked forward to eating there again. I have no complaints about the food. It was fine. And the wait staff (all male on the day we were there) were pleasant... More

Always make a point of stopping here and eating when I am over in Calais. Great home cooked meals, and tons of selection. Everything is always extremely good. The only downfall is that they don't take debit, or canadian money (even when the dollar was good) other than that everything was fantastic !

Not much there. As if everyone's dying to get to Canada. . It was cold and raining. Ordered the tomato soup which was not too appetizing, left half of it. They didn't seem to mind. Our waiter seemed tired, not physically as to mentally regarfing the overall state of her life so far. We had no place for her. The... More

Fairly diverse menu, with some decent choices (although they no longer offer pulled pork), featuring the usuals like burgers, fish & chips , wraps and their pizzas are surprisingly good. The draught beer selections are interesting. As good as it gets in Calais.
