Reliably very good place to eat

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... read more

About 10 of us ate here in Dec. 2014. We order different menu items. We love the food and the food was the right temp to eat. Our server was jolly and had all the orders right. A great time.

The steak and cheese stromboli is one of the best I have ever eaten. You can sit on the outdoor porch and watch the sunset.

This is a restaurant that has survived in Morganton. There's something to be said for that. I was excited to see they had Saganaki finally. But if you have eaten it at other restaurants you might be disappointed. The owner himself brought it to our table. Asked if we orderded the the flaming cheese. We said yes. He set it... More

Yianni's is by far and away one of the best restaurants in Morganton. My husband and I eat there often. The Chicken Parmigiana is my favorite, the calzones are also excellent and as another reviewer stated the deserts are wonderful.

My wife and I were out for dinner an a movie and decided to stop by Yiannis. The food was disappointingly bland. Not bad, just bland. I had a pasta dish, with chicken, feta cheese, spinach, and mushrooms. I added Parmesan cheese, and finally resorted to adding quite a bit of salt just to add some flavor. With all those... More

Great food, awesome service and just a great environment. Awesome chicken wings, and the Chicken Parmesan is equally great.

This restaurant is very quaint. Nothing fancy but the food is delicious. Service is great. I think it is one of the better restaurants in the Morganton area.

Certainly friendly service at this downtown restaurant. Large choice of items on the menu including daily specials. My husband enjoyed the 8 oz. Angus burger but my quesadillas were rather soggy. The portions are enormous and several folks - including myself - were taking boxes home. I would rather the portions were less and then the prices too.
