My husband came to this border town for business, we drove around to find a dinner place. After disappointed with the menu of other place, we chose this one at the first glance. We ordered baked stuffed haddock, salad and "work" pizza, all surprisingly delicious. The service is wonderful and price is good. We will definitely visit again if we... More

Our lunch stop at Yancey’s was unplanned, but very satisfactory. The place has a nice décor and a friendly vibe. The service was just fine. I ordered the seven-inch This & That Pizza, my friend ordered the beer battered fish and chips, and we both liked our choices very much.

We summer on the Canadian side opposite Calais Me, the home of Yancy's, and it is always worth the wait at the border to go there and eat. Pizza is my favorite, but the fish and chips, seafood sandwich and every thing else I have tried has been wonderful. I highly recommend this place.

Ordered fish and chips and it was very good. Had it last year here and it was not good. Glad to see it was just a bad day.

Stopped here for lunch on vacation. Had a Caesar salad with grilled chicken. While most places call a pale, flavorless, sliced up,piece of chicken "grilled," Yancy's chef takes the time to season the meat and grill it so that the pieces are carmelized on the outside, tender, and flavorful. Plus, they add crispy bacon and nice, big shards of Parmesan... More

My husband had a turkey club, made with actual real sliced turkey which he said was delicious. I had a pizza with "the works" on it and it was one of the best I've ever had. The service was outstanding. I always look forward to stopping there.

I don't eat here often, but wehen I do- the food is consistently good- especially the sweet chili chicken pizza. The decor is adorbale and modern and the wait times are not too bad at all. The food IS a bit too expensive if you're loking for a cheap-eat-but they use all fresh infgredients and buy local when they can....So... More

The haddock sandwich is so good, a gigantic piece of fried haddock on a tasty roll. There is enough fish on this sandwich to cut off a piece to take home for later. Also great onion rings and sauce. Pizza is another good choice. Staff is always friendly.

Thank hutz1
