Amazing Little Dive!

A must visit! Really great flavorful, fresh, food. The menu is awesome and there's something for everyone. A little pricey, in my opinion, but totally worth it.

Delicious food in a fun restaurant (no service, when the food is ready they call your name and you'll have to pick up the food your self) with a unusual (in a fun / good way!) decoration.

After a morning event at a local park, we decided to hit this place up for lunch. The atmosphere was fun, the food was great, and well priced, with some good vegetarian options. The only con for me was the parking, that could definitely stand to be improved upon. However we went around lunch time on a Saturday, and it... More

Hey Smokey! Pumped that you came to check us out and LOVED it! The parking can be a bit tricky at our busiest times, but sounds like you were able to make it work! Hope to see you around these parts again soon... Peace, Love & BBQ The Dog More

Quirky little restaurant with a great atmosphere and very good selection of food on the menu, which was lovely. Must have the chocolate cake!! Well worth a visit during a break from the parks even if it is a little bit out of the way.

We have a vegetarian in our family so we are always looking for a menu that has options for both types. Yellow Dog Eats turned out to have a great selection and we thoroughly enjoyed eating out in their courtyard...both providing an interesting eclectic mix to enjoy. Althogh it was during spring break, we went to an early dinner (5... More

We took a break from Disney and found this great place through our guide book. What a great place to rest your tired dogs! There are no reservations. We arrived at around 7 and were lucky to find a seat on their funky patio outside. The menu surrounds their BBQ pulled pork, on buns or bread, but with great condiments... More

In a historic building (which Florida just doesn't have a lot) this is a great place. There is searing inside and out. Wine bar in the evening. But lunch gets crowded and the line gets long. However- it's worth it. Wide variety of sandwiches, homemade pickles, yummy sauces. Great atmosphere.

Its not the easiest place to find and the sat nav gave up. But it was worth it because it was such an eccentric place. Very busy, there are no reservations so its first come first served. The food was great, there was live music and a very relaxed atmosphere. Pictures of dogs everywhere wish I'd bought one of ours.

Fabulous food in a great atmosphere. The pulled pork was superb. Portions were very large. The desserts were excellent. Would go back any time I am in Orlando area.
