Blowing into the Lanyard

On a brisk windy October day when route 28's landscape reminded me of Vermont in fall without the mountains but the added attraction of picturesque beaches, we stop off in Harwich to try The Lannyard Bar and Grill. The building has gone through some changes in the past few years from the 400 East to Land Ho and now with some of the old decor of Land Ho promises to blend the connection between community and a local pub where you can feel at home with comfort foods. Their luncheon menu offers burgers,sandwiches and a few taco choices and the after 5pm menu offers some tempting entrees.I was a little disappointed that there were not entrees available for lunch as one of my lunceon companions has been having a few problems with diet restrictions. The waitress was awesome and willing to help us as we navigated the menu options. We started out with a warm cup of creamy Clam Chowder that had a hint of amber glow to it,but maintain its savory clam goodness. My guess was that a little beer or wine had been added to the chowder which enhanced the flavor a bit. I decided to build my burger which was an 8oz Angus Beef Burger griddled and served on a toasted sesame seed bun with bacon and grilled mushrooms. The burger was cooked to perfection with enough mushrooms and bacon to make this girl a "happy camper". Naomi my Reuben expert ordered the Corned Beef Reuben with sauerkraut, Russian dressing, Swiss cheese on pumpernickel bread and was quite pleased with her choice. Now Sue my friend with some diet limitations was ready for the Lobster Sub but they had run out of it so she decided on the Fish Tacos with broiled fish instead of fried. It was served with a side of rice which was basic and not extraordinary. I think she would had prefered to have tried one of the entrees instead with diet limitations the menu was alittle difficult because of this. They have daily specials and a variety of club sandwiches as well as fried pickles. Thanks to Lanyard and your waitstaff !!
