The Yardarm: A Local Tradition Since 1972

Good Drink, Good Food & Good Conversation!

After a hard day’s work or a day relaxing on the Cape, take a moment and come to The Yardarm; a pub and restaurant with a great local tradition.

The Yardarm Restaurant is a small place with a big imprint. We pride ourselves on being the go-to meeting spot for locals in Orleans. On any given day, you may find fisherman, physicians, businessmen, men and women from all walks of life; all sharing stories over drinks or watching old movies, the Patriots, the Boston Red Sox or the Celtics. The Yardarm is a place where friends meet and new friends are met.

A big reason for our popularity is our fresh food, made daily. We have a great selection of dishes in many different styles, from steaks to homemade Gumbos to pasta dishes, but there’s no one else who prepares fish dishes like we do. In fact, the Yardarm is where the local fisherman go to eat

You’ll meet some locals, hear some tall tales and see a slice of authentic Cape Cod. We’ve been around since 1972 and have seen our share of squalls and washashores, heard all manner of sea tales, local scuttlebutt and hearsay. Come on in, we’ll raise a glass with you and wish you all the best in your seaside adventures!
