Another great meal at the YB!

Enjoyed another great meal here. Even though it was technically the off season, we still made a reservation to be sure we could get in. During the busy season, a reservation for dinner is a must. Pros: -The service is very pleasant and knowledgeable -The food is very good. On this visit we tried... read more

Wow - you will not find a better value in Cape May. Cuisine could best be described as 'modern Mediterranean' - run by family who also run George's Place, not too far away. Excellent, creative dishes, good services - and the prices won't kill you. DO make reservations.

Food is over-priced and one can get a better meal at the sandwich bar at Wawa. Service is terrible; ask the wait staff a question about the food and they can rarely answer it and don't even bother to ask "the chef," if one might call him that. Again, more Cape May hype -- too many folks drinking the-Cape-May-is-great KoolAid!

This place is a hidden gem! There's never a wait and breakfast is scrumptious. I had the egg flatbread creation two days in a row! Wonderful...

Wow, wow, and more wow! I heard this place was good, but honestly it was one of the best meals I've ever had. A couple of months ago we were checking the place out, and the chef/owner came out to talk to us. I had explained that I had a gluten allergy, He basically told me most of the stuff... More

This was our first visit to YB-we have been wanting to try this since we've consistently had great food at his brothers restaurant (George's Place). We were not disappointed with our dinner-the service and food were both excellent. Interesting menu with a nod to the owners Greek heritage. The setting is relaxed and simple. The duck breast in lavender emulsion... More

Again was there for breakfast, both Dave and I had the breakfast pizza. Again very good. BUT disappointed with how the place looked. I understand places are busy in Cape May in the summer but under the long table in the middle of the room there were all sorts of napkins and paper and food on the floor that should... More

We went here on Sunday for breakfast. We walked in and there was no hostess; as it turned out, there were only two waitresses working the entire floor. There was another couple ahead of us and about three minutes after we walked in they were seated. There were two empty tables, but the waitress who greeted us said it would... More

We had a wonderful meal here. The staff was engaging and the service was excellent. A larger space is necessary to support this growing business. Well done younger brother!

It was our first time trying this restaurant, and we found the atmosphere and staff to be pleasant. The waitress accommodated our dining companion's request to make the music softer, which helped our conversation. I had the Greek Village salad as an app which could have fed, well, a Greek Village. My husband had the spicy soba noodles. Both were... More
