Locally very popular restaurant that changed management 2 years ago. Not quite the same but still good. Recently changed prices. Menu still the same. Known for excellent clam chowder.

This place is the consummate neighborhood gathering , dining, conversational mecca. The food always comes out hot and the specials are terrific. The seafood is always fresh due to closeby and connected fishermen. The bar is a fantastic place to sit!

A visit to the Yardarm is to feel the delights of Cape Cod as the summer approaches, this busy little restaurant is run by two of the hardest working people I have met in many years, every customer is welcomed in with a sincere smile and an offer of something refreshing and a place to sit, there is seldom a...

Worst restaurant I have been to at the cape. Long story short. Had high expectations that turned for the worst when slow service, over cooked food that was not even edible. Service was notified and instantly went on the defense and were extremely rude. The owner of this restaurant is the most unprofessional we have even run into. She talked... More

As soon,as we walked in the hostess seemed to have an attitude service was slow although my meal was good others in the party were not happy. Service was slow and not kid friendly. The new owners are not professional and I don't see this establishment being around much longer. Not recommended at all. There are many other fine restaurants... More

Four of us had an enjoyable dinner at the Yardarm Saturday night. Knowing that the Yardarm is a very popular local spot, we agreed to meet at 5:15pm. Good move on our part, as there was plenty of room in the dining room and at the bar when we arrived, yet an hour later, there was quite a wait. We... More

Thank you for your comments and that you enjoyed your food. Our cooks are amazing! So sorry that you could not get the attention of your waitress. I know they work very hard. That said, in the wintertime, we usually don't have enough customers to warrant three waitresses. We hope that you enjoyed your food enough that you will come... More

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!
