Food And Fun All In One Place

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.

  1. Excellent

    We really enjoyed dining in the dome. Service was excellent and
    the food was great. The blue tooth speaker was a fun extra touch!

  2. Excellent

    We rented a dome for my daughter’s 21st birthday, which was very cute and fun. The environment was super cool. Waitress was excellent – great service and friendly. The cocktails and food were great too.

  3. Great overall

    With our appetizers it would have been nice to have appetizer plates but other than that it was really good!

  4. A wonderful evening all around

    The couches in the igloos need cushions as it was very
    uncomfortable seating! You also need a better selection of bourbons
    (Woodford reserve, basil hayden, four roses). Otherwise a wonderful evening
    all around.

  5. Wonderful

    Excellent service in a welcoming environment! It was wonderful
    to see the owner on site. Jay came out to meet us and we love that his
    establishment is dog friendly!
