Good all the way around

Nice specials to choose from. Varied menu. The seafood chowder was one of the best. Service from Rose was great. Going back tonight.

We thanked the Butchers, Ship's Knees Inn innkeepers, for suggesting this great place for a seafood meal. We were pleased with the menu, service, and atmosphere.

This place was close to our motel, so we stopped in for lunch. Nice menu and lobster was great! I had a perfect lunch with a lobster slider, 3 shrimp cocktail and a cup of chowder. Food was delicious, staff prompt and friendly.

This hidden gem is a newly renovated no frills eatery that typically services locals and tourists. The food is fresh and tasty, the staff is attentive and caring and the portions are quite large. We had lobster rolls and salads. The lobster roll was huge, the meat was sweet and tender and not too laden in mayo. Absolutely delicious. I... More

The atmosphere was great. It was cool inside despite the heat outside. We ordered and it came out quickly but Hair on plate and waitress touched food when asked for new plate. Otherwise it was great

We go frequently to this local, no fuss restaurant with bar. Their fried oysters are AMAZING. They treat food with respect (i.e. broccoli or asparagus never cooked beyond crisp stage) and often include a slice of melon on the entree plate. Their daily specials are a true value and tasty. Their Prime Rib nights are not to be missed (M/Th).... More

The Yard Arm has been one of our favorite Cape pubs for years. It has recently changed hands. The staff, menu and atmosphere is the same but the quality of the food has slipped a bit. It is still worth a visit and may just need time to settle into the new ownership.

This is an excellent place for a relaxed lunch or dinners. The staff is friendly and attentive. They have daily specials featuring seafood as well as traditional options. Wine and beer selection is excellent and reasonable. In my opinion, it is one of the best values for dining on the Cape. We have been to this restaurant more than a... More
