All of were very happy with our meals, fish and chips, fish tacos to name a few. Drinks... 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

A bit noisy but the prices were great. A local place where you mingle with those who seemingly just got out of work and stop in for a drink or a burger.

If you want to experience a real local casual restaurant, this is it. The photo in this review is not accurate....must be a joke. The food is good and the Thursday night Prime Rib special is our favorite. Try the seafood stew too, really good. In season there are long waits so for us it is off season only visits.... More
