Yancy's ain't fancy, but very good for a place like Calais.

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.

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

The staff is always friendly, regardless of how busy they are and the place is always clean, including bathrooms. After many trips to Yancy's, the food has always consistent and delicious.

My sister-in-law and I go to Calais every few monthes...and it wouldn't be the same if we couldn't go to Yancy's for lunch. We always order from their daily specials and have yet to be disappointed and the price is always right. Friendly service and amazing food! I highly recommend you try it!!!!!

Stopped in so we could try the spicy chilli chicken fingers - delicious! Light batter, perfectly cooked and great big portion size! Ordered the pizza too and their crust is great! If you're looking for a place that offers good pizza and other pub type fare then this is your spot!

Great find for Calais. Have never had a great meal there but that changes now. I had the chicken pizza and my friend had the fish and chips. Great. Friendly service and nice atmosphere. Will go again.
