This restaurant's cuisine is based on New England-style seafood. A variety of dishes are available here, such as Monterey calamari, steamed clams, P.E.I. mussels, clam platters and coconut cream pie for dessert. Yankee Pier follows the protocol for the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch Guide to ensure sustainable food sources for its menu. The restaurant has a very energetic yet slightly formal atmosphere. There are plenty of tables available for families.
