A beautiful setting in which to watch the sunset while enjoying a very good meal

This restaurant has an excellent view overlooking the South River. The sunset made our meal memorable. We each decided to eat a variety of small plates instead of a main entre. We selected five different ítems, and waited until we were finished one before we ordered another. We had wine and... read more

We made reservations for six of us Saturday night at 6pm and were very glad we did. Our waiter John was a hoot and the appetizers we ordered were awesome! The place was busy since the parking lot was packed, but inside was so large one could not tell. The view overlooking the river was beautiful through the large windows.... More

We were regulars at Yellowfin when we lived in the area but always plan to stop by when we're in town. Year after year they still have the best Happy Hour in a multistate area. But get there early or be ready to stand and eat. Half-priced appetizers (the full-size, not a skinny back version due to lower price). We... More

We always enjoy going to Yellowfin. We had a party of 5 on a Thursday night. We got there early at 5:30 and had our choice of window tables. Had a great waiter, very attentive. There crab dip has to be the best I've ever had - get it regardless of what else you eat - with large chunks of... More

The love of my life and I met here for lunch around noon on a Saturday. The spacious dining room had 3 or 4 parties seated at tables enjoying their lunch and conversation. The dining room on one side has windows that overlook the South River. The space next to the windows is utilized very well so that most of... More

Enjoyed a delicious lunch this week. The Fish & chips were outstanding! The fish was lightly battered & very moist. The small plate was plenty for lunch-2 filets of fish. And the Blackened Tuna Sandwich was also excellent. I requested that the chef go light on the blackening & cooked rare. It was perfect. Our server brought out 2 sauces... More

Went for lunch during the week. Menu was extensive, I liked the fact that there were small plates of many different dishes. When the food was served it was clear that it had been sitting for a while before being served so the french fries were limp, the food warm. Service was on the slow side which was not a... More

They have a great brunch, bottomless mimosas and bloody Marys for a good price and the brunch food is really good. I have only been once for dinner and it really didn't impress me. Of course lots of fish choices, some steaks, no MD crabs, I would not go back for dinner but I would for a Sunday brunch.
