My husband and I stopped here for a late lunch. It is a warm, inviting restaurant, nice for a family meal or a romantic one. My husband ordered the bleu cheese burger; I ordered the avocado turkey burger. Both came with fries, which were very good. The burgers were good; however, the buns were too thick--I felt like we could... More

My husband and I had our rehearsal dinner here five years ago, and make sure to eat here (at least once) every visit! It's a well valued meal with a very cozy and friendly atmosphere. I've never had a meal I didn't like, but the pot roast is incredible and my favorite.

This is our go-to place every time for dinner. They never disappoint when it comes to food or service. But to be honest the drinks come down to who is bartending. They could be good or could be bad so if there is more than one of you ordering the same thing, order one and if it is not right... More

We had lunch there as a family. Food was good, wait staff was good and prompt. Price was in line with other places on the island.

This was the first place that we ate at on the island and I must say that it was one of the best. The service was good and the menu choices were many. They had a nice beer selection. I highly recommend the pot roast, its just like Mom's.

My wife ordered the Prime Rib and it was great.. I had the Whitefish and it was ok I should have done the Prime Rib like she did. It has a great marinade on it.

Yankee Rebel has the best pot roast, actually all their food is good. We went there for wine tasting on Saturday for Women's health weekend.

We had a wonderful meal here. My recommendation is the Yankee Pot Roast...it melts in your mouth. The ribs were great too.

We enjoyed a light dinner at the Yankee Rebel. We had eaten a large lunch while traveling and were hoping for a snack. I had a bowl of New England clam chowder that was large and served hot and tasty. My wife enjoyed the roast beef sliders that were warm and very tender. The waitress was very helpful and we... More
