The Yard is one of the best dining experiences in Maine. The menu includes a selection of smashed burgers made on high heat seasoned grilled topped with real cheeses as well as other premium ingredients including sautéed cremini mushrooms, applewood smoked bacon, haystack onions and more. Condiments include truffle mayo, blueberry BBQ sauce or signature Yard Sauce. For those who do not eat meat, beef can be replaced with (Made in Maine) Veggie Life.
Regardless of what you will choose, talented chefs and cooks at The Yard will prepare a feast for your tastebuds. Fancy a the dessert? Extreme hot chocolate will be a “strong” finale for your dining experience.
