Our go-to place for a special night out

We enjoy dining at Yellowfin's off season. The service is great, atmosphere is nice (though it can be a bit noisy), and the food is very good. Quieter seating is in the window alcoves, or in the back left corner. Our only comment is that the menu could have a little more variety, and vary more... read more

I have been there many times in season and also off-season... I was never désappointed. It's BYOB so it's a plus and I always order the lasy lobster in season...so yummy. If it's not lobster season at all, the steak or Tuna is always a good choice...i remembre the mashed potato was really good, as well as the house salad... More

Quieter seating is in the window alcoves, or in the back left corner. Our only comment is that the menu could have a little more variety, and vary more throughout the season.

We went to the Yellow Fin for the first time. We were warmly greeted by the staff and seated immediately in a cozy white table cloth table. The menu is small and has a great selection of items. The portion sizes was were ample. The food was exceptional! It is a dry restaurant but you may bring your own wine... More

Attention. Portland, Maine dwellers. And Old Orchard Beach visitors as well. Select a designated driver, two bottles of good wine (Ocean Park is "dry") and get to Yellowfin's. Wonderful service from proprietor David, low key and attentive service, white tablecloth minimalist decor. A hidden gem, a bit pricey for a resort town, but worth it. One suggestion - higher end...

We ate on two occasions for dinner. The meals were good. Some choices were of course better than others..the house salad was plentiful and above average,the outstanding rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection was the most memorable. The pasta dishes were also good.. Staff was pleasant and efficient. It is wonderful to have this restaurant in Ocean Park... More

Haddock was moist and tender, wife loved it. The crabcake was a bit mushy without any lumps of crab. Service was excellent. The waiter was very knowlegable.

Went here on a whim, so glad we did. Our first time to OOB. We walked to The Yellowfin from our motel. This was the best meal we have had out in a long time! The Chilean Sea Bass and Seafood Fra Diavlo were the best. The chef/owner came out to see how we enjoyed our dinner. Started with the... More
