I ordered the seared tuna - it did not have any taste at all - I covered it in soy sauce and salt to give it some taste. My kids had the pasta it was OK. My husband had the pork chop - it was burnt and fatty. The waitress was super nice. The view was spectacular. If you don't care about the actual food I would recommend - otherwise I would stay away.

Our waiter Napoleon was the absolute best! Service and food were both excellent! Location is adorable. Food came quickly despite being very busy for brunch. Espresso Martini was the best I ever had!

Had a wonderful late lunch on a Saturday afternoon! The social distancing is still being observed which is great when dining with older folks who are still awaiting a vaccine. The food is always perfectly prepared. I absolutely love the Devils on Horseback as an appetizer. I have Celiac Disease and every dish I have ever ordered has been good as I have never been "glutened" .

It was windy, and you can't help that, but even in the wind a musky watery smell was very apparent on the patio. In addition a loud party was lingering, madkless and talking over us as we tried to enjoy out appetizers. Not a single staff member said anything to them. Disappointed .

The waitress was attentive without being intrusive. The brussel sprout appetizer was delicious! It felt safe with the tables widely spaced. Porch seating was also available.

Through the pandemic, YI has provided a reliably safe dining environment, especially in the tent. The food is consistently good and the "tiers of taste" appetizer presentation is fun. Some new menu items would be welcome.

The stuffed dates were creamy and delicious. The Griggs town chicken salad was huge and we loved it. The pork shanks were so tender. They could have used a tad more seasoning. The mustard sauce that they use is great but we still noticed that they were a little flat underneath.

We loved the ambiance as well.

We sat in the tent and it was a windy and cold evening. The heaters didn’t provide enough heat and we were freezing, even though we dressed warmly. It was a special milestone birthday but we were so uncomfortable we didn’t even stay for dessert. We liked our meals although I’ve had better crab cakes at Yardley Inn in the past.

I was happy they were able to fit us in. We booked on the app and the table was ready by the time we got there. We sat outside and were warm (I had my fleece on since my back was to an opening). We felt safe. The service was fantastic. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. We have been here before and will dove back again.

We had a wonderful meal. We arrived before 5 and it was nice and quiet:).
Our server was nice but seemed distracted at times. Overall good experience.
We all had either filet mignon or flat iron steak and the food was good.

We left around 7:30 and by then it was quite loud at the Inn.

Had a very enjoyable evening at our favorite place. Nick was our server and he is top notch, when he’s not behind the bar making fantastic manhattans. Frank was at the bar working vigorously to serve top class cocktails. The front of house, as always, was extremely accommodating and are the PERFECT hosts. Michele, the manager, came by to say hello and check on us, which is always a classy touch. Service, food, drinks...all the best in the area. Very highly recommended. Ps. I had the shrimp risotto special with fresh English peas and leeks...simply Divine.

or waitress was fabulous and attentive. We all knew what we wanted because we looked at the menu before we came . I had the fish and chips aka fries, fish was crispy nad the fries were browned they way they should be and white and moist . Thanx for the malt vinegar . My mom had the crab bisque and todays quiche and she didnt say a word till she was finished , thats a good thing. My husband had turkey club and my daughter had pastami both loved it. My son had the vegan bowl and my other daughter had cobb salad with and they said would definitely order again.

This is our go-to restaurant for date night! We especially enjoy if we get a spot by the fireplace; it just adds to the wonderful ambience! We love the oysters and the calamari! We also normally get the specials which are always amazing! The servers are prompt and courteous.

I ordered a six ounce filet mignon and was a little surprised at how thin it was.
I know a good filet is an inch and a half to two inches in thickness. It was good ,just to thin for my liking.
