It seems that the kitchen is eager to please, even those on low sodium diets. They prepared chicken piccata that was delicious and without any salt. Want to go back and try other selections from the very large menu. Unpretentious and a local treasure, service is great and the prices are right! Lots of business during the vacation season so...

We ended up here after atempting to eat at anothere establiment. We usually eat here at least a couple times each vacation so we knew it would be good. We waited about 15 minutes before being seated, but the food arrived quickly and we all left full and satisfied!

After a great visit last year, we promised we would return in 2016. Not only did we visit once, but we came back twice! We had the great fortune of meeting the new owner. She is as lovely as can be. She has redecorated and spruced the place up after buying the restaurant for the original owners. It is quaint,... More

We were looking for a nice place to go for lunch and found the Yardarm just off Main Street. Plain interior and not too large but the food was excellent. We chose the prime rib on the luncheon special and it was the same size you would get for dinner and done just right. And, oh yes, the prices were... More

A traditional pub that serves up classic pub fare in a comfortable setting. The food is good and service super friendly. The Yardarm is worth a visit.

The Yardarm was recommended to me by the volunteer in the tourism center on Main Street. Sure enough, this restaurant has a very local, home-like feel. By that, I mean it has the look of a snug roadhouse, a family friendly atmosphere, and a bar available. Seating was immediate and the waitresses are brisk and purposeful. There was a Wednesday...

Visited the yardarm for lunch hadn't been in many years. The place hasn't chnaged much, a good local watering hole. Good beer selection, my wife's lobster roll was all meat, always like the chowder.

Thank you so much for your review. Since buying the Yardarm in Jan 2015, we have made quite a few subtle changes such as new bar top, new flooring, men's room update, kitchen equipment, lighting inside and out, and of course our police and fire department patches on the beams. Hope to see you soon! More

The Yardarm Restaurant is a small place with a big imprint. In the last decades we've prided ourselves on being the go-to meeting spot for locals in Orleans. On any given day, you'll find townsfolk like fisherman, physicians and plumbers all sharing stories over drinks or watching the Patriots. The Yardarm is a place where friends meet and where new friends are made.

A big reason for our popularity is our food. We have a variety of dishes in different styles, from steaks to Gumbos but there's no one else quite does fish like we do. In fact, the Yardarm is where the local fisherman go to eat. We even serve forgotten traditional favorites like Cod Cheeks.

Then more come in for the friendly service. Everyone from the owners down to the wait staff has made it their utmost priority to serve you well, and you'll definitely notice the smiles on our faces and attention to detail as you slowly realize like you're dining at a friend's place.

There's no where else quite like the Yardarm!
