Reliable, delicious, affordable

Good food at a reasonable price. This appeared to be the restaurant that the locals went to, and I can see why. Service and food was great, and we found the prices to be very reasonable. We will be going back

Food isn't consistently as good as it used to be. Our calimari was overly crisp and my wife's food was bland. My fish & chips were excellent. I did, however, have to call for the waitress. Couldn't get a refill on drinks. It was not that busy.

It's been twenty years since we've been here. They still got it going on at the Yardarm. Great clam and seafood chowder! Seven at burger was scrumptious!

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.
