Neighborhood staple and popular spot. Comfortable setting and bar is always full. Some dishes are fantastic, others no so much. A solid "Good."

We love this place, but you've GOT to update the online menu more frequently. And bring back the shrimp malfati!

I love this restaurant- the drinks are great and I love the kale salad! My only complaint is tables for 2 are absurdly small for people who order multiple appetizers. Tables for 4 are fine.

I was disappointed that when we left at 9:00 there still wasn't any entertainment as listed. We were looking forward to spending more time there listening to the music

Food and service were fine. However, we were seated in the VERY noisy bar area AND when we sat down the musician arrived to get set up about six feet from our table. The bar kept getting more crowded, noise increased and music began. We could not talk with our friends! We ate quickly and left.

A charming setting right on the river. Our server was extremely attentive and checked on different questions we had about the menu items. The food itself was good but my ribeye was a big overdone. I have been coming here for years and enjoy it greatly.

I love the feel of Yardley Inn. I much prefer lunch over dinner as the dinner prices are high and the food is really just okay. Maybe next time we will have apps at the bar instead of dinner.

A great dinner with my wife and daughter. I had the crab cakes, and the bottle of wine recommended was awesome! It was a little louder than normal, but it WAS a Friday night! Our daughter had the scallops, and they were prepared just right! A great night! Also, our server was MIKE, who did a terrific job!

we live 15 minutes away from YI and we never get there for some unknown reason! We decided to try it the other nite and I 'm very glad we did! It actually turned out even better than we were expecting. We went at 545 for a regular dinner and was handed an early bird menu along with the regular menu. the 2 entrees that we were going to order appeared also on the early bird so for $26 PP (3 courses!) We feel that we got a very good deal! my husband had the meat loaf and liked it very much and i ordered the mussels and thin pasta. i could not believe the am't of mussels (in shell with delicious red sauce) that were in the order and the am't of pasta was enormous! i would recommend getting them in 2 separate dishes...it actually looked like enough food for 4!!! took the pasta home! the server Mike was very good and very knowledgeable! GO AND ENJOY!

This was our first time here. We were celebrating my birthday. We first stopped by the bar area. This was such a lively friendly area.
We then had dinner in the restaurant. Their was a nice selection to choose from.
I ordered off the early dinner menu. The Caesar salad was excellent. For my main course, I had the pasta with a bologneses sauce, and tiramusu for dessert.
Had to take some of main course home.
The service was just ok. Not what we expected. She wasn't friendly, didn't come around to check on our food. Service in bar area was friendly.
My husband found a tiny white piece of plastic in my leftover I took home??

Overall a good meal, service and attention was good. The outside patio seating area was a nice spot over the crowded and loud main dining room. The noise of traffic on roads adjacent to patio was a bit distracting at times but was tolerable.
2 of my guests had the Duck dish which was a bit disappointing due to lack of seasoning and crispness. Filet Mignon was very good, as was one of the large salads another friend had. Worth another visit to explore other dishes in the future.

The crab soup is my absolute favorite every time I dine at The Yardley Inn. Each time I say to myself I'm not getting the soup this time I end up ordering it and am thankful that I did. Served pipping hot and just the right amount of kick. And, it chock full of crab. Ordered the iceberg lettuce with grilled shrimp. I thought for the amount of (small) shrimp (4) the cost was overpriced. Andy made the best ever vanilla martini and our waiter was darling. The vibe here is very uplifting and the view of the river spectacular.

The staff were wonderful, however the food was certainly not worth $30 for an entree. My seafood was over cooked and my guest was not thrilled with his steak. The reviews were great overall but I was less than pleased.

It was good. Not as good or exclusive as it once was but still a nice place with a good atmosphere. Food was ok with a smaller menu but some things were just too unfamiliar. Again, would still go back

My husband and I eat dinner at the Yardley Inn for a special evening out, where we can enjoy a delicious dinner in a relaxing atmosphere with friendly staff. We tried other upscale restaurants, but find The Yardley Inn to meet our needs better for our special date night out together.

We have dined at the restaurant three times in the past two months, including our most recent visit with another couple. Both the food and service have been consistently good. Our friends, who had not been there before, also remarked that the meal was excellent and that they would come back again. The three course special meal did not feel like it was a compromise (no skimping on the portion size). We will be back again.

The food, service and venue were very good. The margarita was terrible and cost 11!! And it was more ice than drink. Also I was not able to use my birthday coupon on the combo lunch. So I ended up spending less money on what I ordered and could use my coupon. Didn’t make sense.

We did the three-course restaurant week menu: the appetizers of watermelon salad and cucumber and dill gazpacho were very good, but the monk fish and lemon chicken as main courses were both overcooked, particularly the chicken (to the point of uneatable). When we pointed that out, the waiter's response was: "That's how it usually comes out." To his credit, he did notify the manager who did discount the check in compensation.

The service was also lacking generally. We sat outside, which was a small area with just a few tables (and next to the street with no view of any sort). Three different waiters served the area, plus runners, yet we still had to get up to find forks when the main course was served and wait for water and wine order.

I would not recommend this place.
