This place was recommended to me by some friends from New Paltz. I moved to Cooperstown and had eaten at many of the places in this area by the time I made it to the Yum Yum Shack; lets just say this will be a majority vote by me and my fiancée, especially when asked by friends or even strangers...

I had the same thing twice, too. The Haddock Rueben was AWESOME!!! I also split the fish tacos with my husband and there were wonderful, too! I wish we lived closer to this place. This place is a must do if you are in the area. I'm surprised it doesn't have a better ranking. It's the best place we ate... More

I had the Pasta Carbonara and it was excellent as was the glass of Cote de Rhone I had to go with it. After a disappointing meal at another place in Cooperstown, we came back here for our final night in town. The Fish and Chips was superb, as was the shrimp dish my girlfriend ordered. Great service, nice people,... More

The food at this spot was excellent! But it was really expensive. I know it's in a tourist area, but still. Our whole family enjoyed the meal.

Don't be misled by the name, Yum Yum Shack! I had the opportunity to dine here the first week in July and cannot wait to return the end of July. The environment offers outside as well as inside dining. The menu is varied and inviting. The food is delicious. The presentation matches any "fine" dining establishment you might visit. The... More

Was looking for a good meal after too many burgers during the tournaments at Dreams Park. This is a seafood place that had wonderful mussels, excellent Salmon, oysters and a lobster special when I was there was fantastic. Eat outside if you can.

I didn't feel like a heavy meal so I stopped in here, it is a cozy little place with nice outdoor seating and plenty of parking. I happen to run into the head chef chatting in the parking lot and was warmly greeted and offered suggestions on the menu. I kept it simple, lobster and steamed clams. It was good,... More

I enjoyed my experience here that we returned a second time during our week in Cooperstown. I had the clam chowder for starters and it was excellent. Followed it up with the fish sandwich (Haddock)/chips and it also was delicious. They serve some local craft beers and the standard domestics. The restaurant is a quaint place with outdoor seating. We... More

The food was delicious! The menu included a lot of seafood but also a wide variety for the non-seafood lover. The chef made a special dish for my father that wasn't offered on the menu simply because we asked if it could be done. He loved it! The food is moderately priced but I was so happy with our meal...
