HYC is part of a marina in the Dundalk area and its menu offers a good selection of seafood. The place also has a Tiki bar outside and a more traditional bar inside its building where patrons can have their preferred drinks without the need to order a meal, if they don't want one. There is dining both inside and... More

I've been here for breakfast lunch and dinner in the summer time its great. Indoor seating for winter, decent food and drinks. But definitely a reminder of the Caribbean that's why I love this place.

We were pleased to be in the area again for lunch at the HYC. We enjoy the outdoor seating and just relaxing on the waterfront. Going mid-afternoon was a great time since the lunch crowd was gone and dinner crowd hadn't started. Once again, the crab soup was wonderful with a whole scoop of crabmeat on top. The sandwiches and... More

Hard Yacht has a huge loyal group of followers and there is no wonder why. The food is great and the service is excellent. Everyone's fun and friendly and the atmosphere is just right. Sit inside or outside, arrive by car or by boat. Cold beers await. The entertainment is live and first class. I would not want to miss... More

Good atmosphere and good bands. Food is great and fun bunch of people. When you first drive in you aren't quite sure there is a restaurant there but surprise! I enjoy going there.

My family wanted to go someplace to sit outside since it was so nice out so we went here on a Sunday afternoon, we've been here before & it was decent. We didn't see a hostess stand so we asked a waitress walking by, she said we could seat ourselves at any table that didn't have a reserved sign on... More

Had been here for happy hour a time or two before finally deciding to eat a meal. Was skeptical since these types of places generally don't deliver in the food department. To my surprise though, this place breaks that mold. Amongst other things I love the fact that they have hush puppies, and they're actually tasty. Have now eaten here... More

This was our first visit. We had a group of 7 and ate from the Bruch menu. I had the Hangover Burger and it was cooked perfectly and was delicious. Our waitress was excellent and told us about the all you can drink Bruch Special. Most of our group went for it and it ended up being a great idea.... More

We just discovered the Hard Yacht Cafe and will be going back again. This is a unique place on the water and it makes you feel like you are in the Keys! We sail on the bay and like this is a great place to end the day after being on the water. The food was great- especially the crab... More

Visited the upstairs bar today, friendly patrons, less than fair service, good food. Policy is to hold a CC if you choose to run a tab rather than pay cash as you go. My CC was not returned by the bartender who was the same one that took it when we arrived. I drove 45 Minutes away only to realize... More
