Old style. Smells old, tastes old, looks old. One of the few holdovers from the ancient "fry it up" seafood restaurant model that was prevalent in the 70s. The locale is great, but there are much better options. Everything about it is old and stale.

All selections are greatly overpriced, and not much available for those who eat healthy. Any exceptions to fried foods are extra charges. Grandma's gumbo was certainly more pleasing than her attitude when we inquired if they honored vets with a discount on Venteran's day 2014!...More

Great view of Mobile Bay on city pier. Menu is mostly fried seafood which is cooked using fresh oil a big plus for taste. Gumbo worth trying is made from old recipe. Only draw back is distance from parking.

We went here on a lark after driving down to Fair Hope. The fish wash not fresh, the prices were too high for what you got and it was a bad experience. I have never given anyone 1 star before but wow

My wife and I have been to The Yardarm several times. While not fine dining, the seafood is always consistently prepared, whether fried or broiled. The atmosphere is unique, being midway on the Fairhope public pier. Great gumbo!
