Having lived in Lafayette, CA for over 30 years I knew all the great seafood restaurants for which Lafayette was famous, Cape Cod House and Lafayette Seafood to name two, gone now. The arrival of Yankee Pier a few years ago was fabulous. Finally great seafood is back in Lafayette. Even though Yankee Pier is a chain, it is exceptional,... More

Took our family of 6 to Yankee Pier for Thanksgiving. For $49 per adult we not only had a delicious meal, but very generous portions. We've eaten here a few times and this experience clinches our love for Yankee Pier. there were many choices for appetizer, entree and dessert. Most of us took home leftovers for the next day. My...

One of our favorite restaurants with fantastic food, great service and super martinis ! I had the swordfish on a bed of delicious wild mushrooms. They also have a very good selection of very good wines to compliment their well prepared fish. We go here quiet often because it is one of our local restaurants of which we never have... More

Always fresh fish, simply prepared, combined with a diverse cocktail menu and excellent service. It's our go-to restaurant for both special occasions and casual meal.

They had deep-fried soft-shell-crab as an appetizer over a large bed of the thinnest french fried potatoes I have ever seen. I had it along with a lettuce-wedge and it was plenty to eat. Always enjoy their martinis with great service. Great value if you get their 'gift-cards' at Costco !!!

Second visit; first time for lunch - what a treat! Choice of indoor or outdoor seating. Good, friendly service and a terrific lobster roll with coleslaw and chips plus fresh grilled swordfish with two sides (several choices). We drive over an hour to enjoy this place. Not much street parking, but a lot in the rear. Reservations on OpenTable…much easier... More

This restaurant seems to be one of the few places in the area for fish, so decided to try it on a recent trip to the area. My partner and I both had the fish and chips, that we both enjoyed, but sadly the meal came before the drinks, the restaurant itself was too cold, it was noisy and not... More

This is such a reliably good place for dinner or lunch! My husband and I go fairly often and have found it to be reasonably priced and wonderfully consistent. The hubs loves their fried clams, because they serve the whole clam, not just strips, which are usually made from the more chewy parts of the clam, like the neck. He's... More

We go there quite often and the food and service is always very good. Great bartender who makes great drinks !!! Easy to make reservations on Open Table. Public parking lot in the rear of the restaurant. Costco sells gift cards for this restaurant at a great savings. They have a 'Happy-Hour' during the week.
