this is where the "locals go!" Had a great meal, not fancy but very well done! Would go back here in a minute! Very reasonable!

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

Yard Arm is one of our go to spots on weekends down the cape. This is a year round spot, priced right for the locals and featuring some of the freshest perfectly cooked seafood around. The atmosphere is a bit raucous, but that is part of the charm. Love the scrod baked in wine - we are never disappointed at... More

Everything about the Yardarm works -- from the staff who recognizes you to the great burgers and generous drinks. The place is the "Cheers" of the mid-Cape!

This is not fine dining but above average pub food. Service was efficient and friendly. They actually had some good wines. I had chicken piccata which at first seemed quite bland but was served with a lemon. At first I thought it was a garnish but realized the dish was lacking the lemon and squeezed it on and mixed it...

We needed a place to get a simple bite on our way to the Cape Cod beach. We didn't want anything too posh (tired of paying for $21 for a lobster roll). So, this place was perfect. True that most of the food is fried seafood (neither of which I am fond of), but the sandwich and soup I got... More

We had lunch here on two consecutive days. Sandwiches were very good. Excellent variety of beers. My wife liked the mixed drinks. They were very accommodating in allowing us to watch a game in the side room on the first day. Casual attire.

A casual, homey restaurant/bar with a very good good menu variety and above average quality. Burgers and fries...$8.95. Adding sides can jack up the bill, but the food and comfortable atmosphere is worth it.

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.
