Concierge.com's insider take:
The Land-Ho—a big bar in the center of Orleans—is a local hangout with brass fixtures, red-checkered tablecloths, and antique signs from local businesses covering the walls and ceiling. There's live music and food, including a (rare on Cape Cod) late-night bar menu, and the 14 beers on tap keep the conversation lively. If it's a local dive bar you're after (or a quieter place to toss back a cold one), the Yardarm—just around the corner from Land-Ho—is a favorite of fishermen and lawyers from the nearby district court who are happy to chat up visitors over a beer (48 S. Orleans Rd., Orleans; 508-255-4840; yardarmrestaurant.com).
Open Mondays through Saturdays 11:30 am to 1 am, Sundays noon to 1 am.
