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!

We were a large family group and had to wait to be seated but we got frequent updates on what to expect. It was apparent that everything was being done to accommodate us. Once seated, the service was excellent and attentive and the food was prepared exactly as described. The menu is varied enough to suit a wide range of preferences and our entire party was satisfied.

Went to Yard Arm for fish and chips. Cost $12.95 for a very little piece of fish with shoe string potatoes and a little cold slaw. Was not happy at all and will not go there again. This was my second time there. I figured that the first time was just a bad day. But it was not any better. The price was too high for little amount of food. I am not a big eater.

Bad food, bad service and the locals do not want outsiders. One local actually got my 65yo dad alone outside and questioned him as to who and what we where driving. This was so odd because none of us where intoxicated and this guy was not an employee, but a drunk patron sitting at the bar since lunchtime. It seems the locals in this bar have nothing better to do except chase away good paying customers. If you want a good cape experience stay away from the Yardarm.
