Yellow Fin had the best food we ate all week while on the Island. However the noise in the dining room detracted from the experience.

If you are a foodie, this is one of the few options on the island. Yes it's expensive but the quality of the food and staff is consistently good. The menu has a nice variety with some interesting appetizers. It is a nice place for an "adult" dining experience.

Absolutely delicious but watch out for the sticker shock for the specials. Our guest ordered the steak special which was very large but we were shocked at the $70 price for his entree. For that price, it should have been hand fed to him. Service started off great with very knowledgeable staff but had to hunt someone down for water... More

Too dark and could not see what we were eating. To loud, could not carry on a conversation with our friends, and over priced. Have been coming here for years and this will be our last. Prices have been going up every year but we always had a good meal until this year Not enjoyable

All apps and entrees were good I had the filet with garlic mashed which was good. I didnt think the pricing was too high it is expensive but not crazy. You get a good meal on LBI and great service

The 28 ounce cowboy steak with 6 cheese Mac.was prepared to perfection. The fish presentations were equally excellent including the black cod. Start with a fried green tomato lobster stack, and end with one of their incredible desserts. It's BYO and reservations, sometimes weeks in advance are required.

Dinner at the Yellowfin in Surf City, NJ could be characterized as: some good, some not-so-good. The Yellowfin is a BYO restaurant. My wife and I had a $100.00 gift certificate from family for the Yellowfin. We went expecting a 1st class dinner, meaning great food, nice atmosphere and excellent service. We got a mixed bag. We split one of... More

Visited this restaurant for Mother's Day what a disappointment. We have been coming to this restaurant for 14 years and expected first of all to have a great dinner. Especially since it was a holiday! The menu was more limited then ever. There should have been an item to rave about say lobster tail which they usually serve all other... More

More fluff than food. However, the food is good but not near enough. Dark and crowded. Our waiter seemed to have too many tables but did his best to take care of us.

We are blessed to spend a week each Fall on LBI, and we console ourselves as the week draws to an end by dining at our favorite restaurant -- Yellow Fin. The food is superb, but a bit pricey. The fact that it's BYOB helps keep the cost under control. On our visit last night we had three different dinners... More
