Second time here while visiting from family from out of town. Three of us got blackened scallops special and one got salmon special. We all enjoyed what we got. Scallops cooked just right, not over cooked. Salads were served fast and seem like they were made in advance, they were OK. Waitress was attentive and had a good personality. I... More

I've visited Yianni's twice now. Once when I first moved to this area over a year ago, and again tonight for my birthday. I will go back more often, as I love all the traditional Greek items on the menu. Both times the food was amazing! Tonight I ordered a special entrée and it came with chicken oregenato, roasted potatoes,salad... More

Just what we were looking for on a Saturday afternoon. They weren't busy so service was excellent. Don't know how they would react with a crowd but the owner had them well trained and was giving direction from his seat at the counter. I had gyro with fries and my wife had something similar, souvlaki I think. We would order... More

If you are heading to the mountains or in the neighborhood of Morganton stop by at Yianni's Family Restaurant for breakfast, which is served until early afternoon, lunch or dinner. The food is good and has a Mediterranean or Greek flair. Plenty of other choices on the menu as well. The service was quick and efficient and was very attentive.... More

In town for the NC Mainstreet conference and stopped in to have lunch. The restaurant was slammed with people but the staff was doing a great job taking care of everyone. I had a lunch special that came with a small bowl of soup, a salad, sandwich and rice pudding for dessert. It was only $7.95 so it was a... More

Both Greek and Italian selections were on the extensive menu. Typical for a Greek restaurant. I enjoyed the chicken piccata much more than my wife, the eggplant parm. There are better choices, but the price and selection make yiannis a good dinner choice.

It was a busy day and the staff was a bit chaotic, which is understandable. The Main St. Conference was in town and they were slammed at lunch. The cash register is in a terrible location with staff rushing by and slamming into you and I felt weird standing in line because I was in the way no matter where... More

We finally got to try this and we think it was really good. Myself and husband both got the gyro sandwich, very good but my husband said it was small. My son got lasagna and it was great and a lot of it. We will for sure go back.

Our hiking group has been stopping in here for ten years or so; when we come, we are hungry and looking for good food, service, choices, and a fair price. We have never been disappointed. The owner, who is from Brooklyn N.Y and very experienced in the restaurant business, knows what he is doing. The salads, esp. the Greek with... More
