“Great whitefish with pistachio crust”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

We ate at the Yankee Rebel on a cold blustery day in October. The restaurant has a great cozy ambiance and the food was great. My husband had a very large serving of Yankee pot roast that he thought was pretty good. My whitefish with pistachio crust was presented on top of garlic mashed potatoes with a side of zucchini, yellow squash, and carrots. Very pretty and delicious.

“Potato Leek Soup”
Reviewed October 7, 2012

The potato leek soup was out of this world! My hubby had the chicken wrap and I had chicken pasta salad with baby spinach. Both were served up in huge portions.

“An outstanding dining experience - among the tastiest & most enjoyable during our stay on the Island!”
Reviewed October 6, 2012 via mobile

Ok, straight to the bottom line: order the Famous Pot Roast entree. I'm not sure there is a better beef dinner anywhere. The service was great, atmosphere comfortable, and I'll go back. All in my party agreed. Oh, did I mention the Famous Pot Roast dinner?

“Good food, reasonable prices”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

Good menu of sandwiches; a bit off Main Street so get a window table so you do some people watching.
