We have fined here about five times since my first review in 2011. Wednesday's are great for half price wine bottles and when they have special deals on seafood. Mussels app is great and a meal in itself. Salmon, steaks, country chicken and other entrees are well prepared and served as ordered. Service is always attentive without being overbearing. Use...

Market Yard is a pretty good restaurant. What's weird about it is our server and the busing people are literally obsessive-compulsive disorder about wanting to remove plates and silverware either the instant you put your fork down, or if you are just taking a rest. You really have to be on guard to protect your food. It's downright peculiar and... More

I was pleasantly surprised when the waitress asked how she wanted her fish cooked. The waitress recommend medium and we agreed. To bad the people in the kitchen did not get the... More

From the moment we sat down outside, the staff made us feel like this is a 1st class operation. Very attentive staff. I ordered the Beef Negamaki for an app. Wow! perfection! For an entree, I had the Lamb T-bones. The best I've ever had! Try a raspberry pie cocktail, delicious! Classy place. Pricey,but, certainly worth every penny.

Went with friends, their suggestion. Nice place, 3 of them had mix drinks, they all said they were good. Had beef negamaki & calamari apps, very good. 3 of us had burgers, very good. Wife had chicken sandwich, (I had as a leftover, very good). Nice atmosphere, friendly waiter. Will go back.

I held off on this hoping the restaurant would respond to our problem, but they haven't. We were there two weeks ago and some things were great, but at least one wasn't. First, when we reserved ahead, we asked for a booth, and sure enough we got one. So far so good. As soon as we sat down, rolls and... More

We went there with several people. My wife and I both had the lamb t-bones. They were delicious. I highly recommend them. We ended up with a dessert of little cheesecake balls sitting atop pineapple. Not so great for the price.

For $35.00 per adult, the Market Yard Grille (aka The American Hotel restaurant) provided a lovely Easter Sunday brunch that rivaled the one at The Molly Pitcher Inn and, in some ways, surpassed it. Special touches at The Market Yard Grille included a fabulous shellfish bar, with jumbo peeled shrimp, oysters, clams, and mussels. They provided some kid-friendly choices such... More
