I am from NYC and travel to south Florida each year for the season. I make it a point to plan my trip down and back in order to stop in at the Yearling to have lunch or dinner and I always call to make sure Stacey will be able to serve me. The food is delicious and Stacey always... More

Step back in time to Micanopy valley in the mid 1800s. The Yearling restaurants southern charm atmosphere and home cooking of the finest local foods available will surely please. Don't get me wrong this is not your fancy eating place but rather like eating at your grandmothers cabin way back out in the country. Featuring a roaring fireplace and a... More

We frequent the Yearling every couple of weeks because we love the atmosphere and the redfish and fried shrimp and venison. The house salad could be a meal itself. We always look for Tammie when we go in because she is an awesome server and treats us like family. In addition to all I've mentioned we love the blues played... More

When we pulled up, the outside of the restaurant was a bit shabbier than expected, however, the meal was fantastic! I enjoyed the blackened shrimp and my husband had a burger. A local musician, Willy, played live blues music which was phenomenal. All in all, we really enjoyed our meal and plan to come back. This place seems divey, but... More

While a little pricey, The Yearling offers a unique menu of Cracker Cuisine in a rustic setting. The Gator is really good but the Buttermilk Pie is absolutely awesome. Wendi is a very attentive waitress and is always there before you need her. The blues man, Willie Greene, adds a great ambiance as well. When you're done with dinner, be... More
