After traveling to Ocean Park for past 10 years, I finally found time for the Yellowfin. The meal presentation was excellent, as I decided to have both the appetizer and entree dinner specials. Scallops wrapped in bacon (4) and blackened swordfish. Both were very good. I was on a midweek vacation and it was a Wednesday, the room was half... More

While visiting friends in Old Orchard Beach, we found Yellowfins in the neighborhood we were staying. We did not have a reservation, but Were seated promptly in the pleasant well decorated dining room. We had wanted to have fish and there were many entrees to choose from. The Ocean Park area of OOB is "Dry" so if you want to... More

We went here for our last dinner of our vacation. The food was very good as was the service. I also liked the concept that it is BYOB. The only thing that left me wanting was the fact that I did not notice a whole lot of local cuisine; in fact, there wasn't any lobster dishes when I was there.... More

Excellent food, superior service (thank you, Stephen). Blackened Sword was the best. They do take reservations - perhaps require them in season, but on the shoulder season, we were able to walk in. That night, a restaurant full of loud, happy diners all in good spirits enjoying excellent food; the next night more subdued dining mood focused on - you... More

We come to Maine every September for a vacation. We rent a cottage and usually friends of ours rent one also at the same time. And every year, we go to Yellowfin's one evening to have dinner. Last year was so-so for the first time but we decided to go anyway again this year. We didn't regret it. We were... More

We stumbled on this hidden gem at the end of a LONG drive to Old Orchard Beach in heavy vacation traffic, and were delighted to find them open (it was late) and to be greeted with excellent service and a varied menu. The spacious dining room with white linen table cloths, windows open to the sea breeze (the beach is... More

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon Yellowfin's during tourist season this year when you usually need reservations to get into the place, and based on the attire of everyone in the restaurant, you need to look put together. The two of us had been driving for most of the day and were greasy and sweaty, and had no reservations. The... More

We celebrated an 80th birthday there recently and had a wonderful meal. There was a bit of a delay wince the table we had reserved was still occupied when we arrived but the staff apologized profusely and did their utmost to make us comfortable as we waited. We started with appetizers. I loved my escargots on mushrooms and my husband... More

We've been to Yellowfins many times and have found each visit to be excellent. It's usually very busy in the summer....better the rest of the year but only open a few days during the winter. The owner, David, is on the premises every night and usually makes the rounds of customers. The food is wonderful and the service is usually... More
