We visited the Yard Arm restaurant in Orleans for lunch on Dec. 28th, 2017. I am gluten intolerant, so since their menu CLEARLY states that people with food allergies should advise the staff, we felt encouraged that my needs might be addressed. This was far...More

Nice meal, decent service, just a loud crowd. More bar than restaurant but I suspect that’s the appeal. No issues for me, but good to know ahead of time. :-)

Thank you for your comments. We have a nice group of people that enjoy the conversation & laughter. You may want to request a table away from the pub next time.

From what I know, the Yardarm was owned by the Sullys since 1972 & we purchased it in 2015 from them.

Description
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!
