We spend a lit of time at ocean park and always go to yellowfins once to enjoy a nice evening. We had reservations and when we arrived we had to wait 20 minutes to get seated. They were busy so that was ok. We waited for our salads for an hour. We ordered onion soup which the was very good... More

We have been coming to Yellowfins for a few years now, and have never had a bad meal. Service is always great. During peak season they are busy, so call in advance for reservations. As Ocean Park is a dry town, Yellowfins does not have a liquor license, thus they encourage you to "bring your own spirits." I like this... More

Our favorite vacation spot when the kids were young was OOB. Now at 24/22, they wanted to go back....I chose Yellowfins because I like BYOB and it received good ratings. Although the food was OK, the service on this night was extremely slow. Where we were sitting, our waitress was looking in the mirror to make sure she looked good,... More

My husband and I were out of town for my birthday. We couldn't decide where to eat and finally called Yellowfin's to see if we could get in. Thankfully they had a reservation in 15 min. at 8 pm. They were really busy, but our waiter was excellent. The kitchen was slammed but we never felt like we waited too... More

Amazing place steps from the ocean. The staff was amazing and the food to die for. Well, hopefully not .. more to LIVE for as it's fresh and good and healthy. I had the special blackened mahi mahi with mango salsa. Came with nice salad, rice pilaf or potato and veggie. A lot I thought for a high end spot... More

Very friendly on reservations. All types of diners there from couples to families to groups of friends. We went on the early side 5:45pm (opens at 5pm) and it was fairly crowded. Love the ability to bring your own wine, served very nicely and white is chilled if necessary. We were a group of 11 diners, no room for dessert.... More

My wife and I ventured down to Ocean Park a few weeks ago and were totally wowed by the meal we were served. We started with some crab cakes, which were cooked to perfection and very tasty. My wife ordered the salmon and I had a sirloin wrapped in bacon with crumbled blue cheese on top. Can't wait to go... More

Three of us went to the Yellowfins for dinner. The service was very fast, the bread was warm and delicious, service was prompt, atmosphere was nice, the owner visited our table several times to ask if things were fine, and the food was just great. We ordered the Pesto Pasta, the Almond Crusted Haddock, and I had the Seafood Fra... More

Probably our favorite restaurant in OOB. Ocean Park section. Service is great, food fresh and very well prepared. BYOB which is nice. Small place with very nice decor.
