Great food at a family watering hole!

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.

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
