I reside locally and have been to the Yum Yum Shack with friends on several occasions over the course of three years-I make every effort to be objective-so perhaps my readers will have trouble believing me when I again say that here is another Cooperstown area restaurant with excellent food served in a casual atmosphere--I have always enjoyed whatever I...

Yum Yum Shack Cooperstown, NY The restaurant choices are minimal if you are spending a week in Cooperstown with your 12-year old son and family. We decided to try restaurant called Yum Yum Shack. And that’s exactly what it was … a shack, seating inside for only about 15 people. We went with 2 other families while our sons stayed... More

The food was reasonably priced for seafood and very delicious! We sat outside and was just a neat atmosphere with a live band. Our waiter was great too! Highly recommend!!

The owner of our B&B recommended this place. In fact, when we turned up for dinner, we were amused to see her there, with her whole family. The Yum Yum shack doesn't look like much - just a roadside restaurant, with a few tables outside, and a bar. The atmosphere is informal, and there's a decent sized play area behind... More

We had a wonderful table and the place was quiet, no loud noise. The staff were very gracious and paid good attention to us. The seafood (all the food) was top-notch. Very fresh. We went back the next night and they were closed (Monday). Too bad for us.

Scallop appetizer and Fish Tacos are excellent. Fish and Chips are fair at best---frozen pre-cut fries. Went there twice during our vacation, during one visit service was good, the next, service was poor.

Isaac is the friendliest person we've encountered since arriving. He is attentive and has excellent suggestions. Food and atmosphere is 11 out of ten stars!
