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!

Always crowded lunch or dinner .......very noisy ......tables close together ......full range blackboard menu from prime rib to fried clams including some items not ordinarily found in the pub type restaurants such as bratwurst and baked beans ........friendly service.........reasonable prices.....worth a try.

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.

We've had lunch here several times when we're visiting from NH, have always returned when back. You definitely must go there for at least lunch- great wraps (check the specials, regardless of the wraps!) beyond varied menu choices. Service is excellent AND quick. We'll be back in September- you should be too.

There are many great clam places on the Cape, but who knew that the Yardarm in Orleans was another great clam place. Usually think of it as a great hamburger and prime ribs kind of place. The fried clams strips were crispy on the outside, not doughy, and very tender on the inside. So if you need another place to enjoy your favorite clam strips, give the Yardarm a try. Pea soup also delicious! Tuesday hamburgers are fun as you can put unlimited toppings for $7.00 -- so you can have your best burger ever. Also, if the locals hang out here, you know it has to be good.

I'm so glad you enjoyed our clams, and of course, you can never go wrong with a good burger. I really appreciate your compliments and I'm glad you've given a variety of our menu items a try. I hope to see you again soon.

Best, John
