A good friend brought us here for dinner. Recommended the walleye and perch which are the hot favourite. Dessert of ice cream pies were the best. Don't eat it by yourself though. As what our friend said, it is community eating. And don't be surprised... we do eat ice cream with a fork and knife. Nice decor too...

Great, small tavern style pub. Ate outside this time amongst the lake breeze and towering boat masts all around. Last time ate inside. Numerous small rooms to eat in, and live music was great. Inside is small and tight. Great fish. Walleye and Perch this time. Chips are very average, but fish excellent.

But the real beauty was dessert. Interesting decor with nautical maps and fisherman accessories. Good, friendly service. Live music twice a week Saturdays and (I think) Wednesdays. Vegetarians, it's Buca Burgers. The Cajun grilled catfish was decent for the price, and it tasted fresh. Buffalo burger option. Three soups of the day, butternut squash soup, chili and a clam chowder... More

My uncle was visiting from Florida and wanted lake perch. It's been almost 5 years since I've been to Yardarm, since my husband doesn't eat fish. My uncle loved it. There were 5 of us total and we all ordered the perch platter. We had 7-8 pieces of fish and our plates were heaping with sand dollars (the best fries... More

It had been a while since we dined at the Yardarm..past experiences were good. The latest visit not worth the money. Food was mediocre at best. Beer is cold & the music was good ...next time we will stick with that..

Be warned that if you have a party of 3 adults, 1 young lady and 2 children, 18% gratuity will automatically be added to your bill. For this 18% automatic gratuity, you will be ignored, it will take forever to get your food, and will have to beg for a drink refill. The food was average when it finally arrived.

This is a small establishment so don't be fooled by the long wait, it's not because the food is great. We were ignored when we originally walked in and I wish we would've just left at that point. The food was maybe a 3 on a scale from 1 to 10. Extremely overpriced for the quality of food! We have... More

First time in years since we were here. Had the perch, very good, wife had the walleye, it was ok. She prefers it pan fried, it looked more like it was baked. I thought it tasted good. Very crowded, we finally got a couple of seats at the bar.

We went there because we wanted a fish fry. One plate for you. The food not happy with. Service was first along wait. Then the waitress was not attentive. Bad experience. Won't give a second chance.

Went back to Racine to visit family. My sister loves the Yardarm so we went there a couple times, the second time for the fish fry. Haven't enjoyed perch like that in years! And yes, the Sand Dollars are everything everyone says! Nice selection of appetizers, mostly deep-fried items but quite tasty. There's a full bar with a nice selection... More
