We decided to go to Y.K.B.C., for lunch as we'd seen the ads on tv & thought it looked good. We weren't disappointed by the food...it was excellent,BUT (i'll come back to the BUT!!!, later). My wife had the grilled jewelfish & said it was very,very nice. Well cooked & it came with a sauce, she thinks, was a lemon... More

Popped in here with our 3 children for a spot of lunch. Had read the poor reviews on here so wasn't expecting a fine dining experience. The portions are HUGE even the kids portions are big & they often have adult mains but struggled to finish off their kids nachos. The crumbed whiting was good (4 decent sized pieces) &... More

I've been here many times, and always take visitors there if in the area for lunch. Today's lunch was crumbed whiting with salad ... another really enjoyable meal. Entree size meals x 2 was $33 which is a bit on the higher side ... but it was a decent serving size ... and delicious as I've always found here before.... More

We didn't book but only had to wait a short time for a table. Great views and pleasant staff. Ordered the garlic prawns for mains and was disappointed to find only 7 prawns on the plate at a cost of $28. Meal very average. Certainly much better options for lunch so won't be going back in a hurry.

The fish dishes were scrumptious, as they should have been. Although the service left quite a bit to be desired, we would give it one more shot another time.

Stopping at the YKBC was to be a highlight of the trip that was winding to an end. D.I.S.A.S.T.E.R..... On ordering our meal the entree's were bought out 20 minutes apart....1/2 our "crew" were finished prior to the other entries arriving. The oysters were very nice however from south Australia...maybe we should have gone to Adelaide. The main meals were... More

We saved Yorkeys Knob for our last lunch on our week long holiday and it was by far the worst dining experience of the week. None of the bar staff looked happy, no eye contact or common courtesy. We ordered lunch and had to ask for a refund for 3 of the meals because they had been sitting in the... More

Food was okay. We went there in the evening but the locals say the view in the daylight is amazing and makes up for the poor food.

Friends took us here for an enjoyable morning tea. It is in a great position, with a deck overlooking the marina at Yorkey’s Knob. The staff were very friendly & we had some good fun bantering with them (I guess because the restaurant was very quiet mid-morning). There was plenty of seating, but I would imagine that you would be... More
