My wife and I ate there tonight, basically looking for a friendly atmosphere with good food. We split an appetizer of fried calamari which was tasty but could have been a little more crispy. My wife had the lobster roll for dinner and loved it - large chunks of meat and nicely prepared - but my stuffed shrimp was not... More

Dated decor, noisy, not the cleanest, food ordinary…there are other places to spend your money. Our waitress brought the water glasses by carrying them with her fingers over the rim of the glasses and sticking in the water. YUCK! Then, she picked up a clean dish to bring to our table and stuck it under her armpit. We left.

Every time we visit Orleans, we head to the Yardarm first. it has a real local hangout feel and the food is yummy and not too expensive. This time we had the chicken piccata with linguine, stuffed shells and the knockwurst platter - all were delicious. Service is always excellent. We'll be back!

Atmosphere is divey but food was good. Had a half outer/clam fried plate; enough for two ($25). Fresh fish great batter!! Fried chicken was good too! Coleslaw left me sad. Kind of funky and missing my beloved "tang". Server said they use an apple cider vinegar. My taster said "funky" cabbage....?? Service was abrupt and efficient. No chit chat but... More

Ate here on 7/29/2014 with good friends. We were there about 7:30 and had to wait about 15 minutes. It is small, dark and noisy inside. I ordered the teriyaki steak tips which I believe were $15.95. We also ordered an app of the mozzarella sticks. They were the standard fare probably taken from a box in the freezer. They... More

This place has good food and offers a bit of a change from the Standard Cape Cod pricey seafood. Play change-up and go here for a great little specials list with good prices, i.e.: Manicotti with homemade marinara sauce for $10, etc. Hamburgers, pasta, seafood, steak tips, etc. All is pretty well done and prices are very reasonable. Good for... More

It took forever for us to get our food. We had 3 little kids so that was a nightmare. The place was very dark, I would have liked somewhere that was brighter for vacation and the food was OK

Went to Yard Arm for fish and chips. Cost $12.95 for a very little piece of fish with shoe string potatoes and a little cold slaw. Was not happy at all and will not go there again. This was my second time there. I figured that the first time was just a bad day. But it was not any better.... More
