We stopped by the cafe for some lunch with our 3 kids on the recommendation of a Yorktown trolley driver. We received UNBEATABLE service from Ernie who bent over backward to accomodate our requests. The open faced roast beef sandwich and crab cake sandwich were delicious. It was a quiet family friendly atmosphere. Excellent service and a tasty meal!

Wow! EXCELLENT seafood. Several of us had the seafood platter and it was HUGE. Everything on it was delicious. It was next to impossible to eat it all but we tried! Stuffed shrimp were awesome --and huge--as well. If you have room, the coconut meringue pie is scrumptious!

While visiting Yorktown we decided to cancel reservation we had for another place and went to eat at the Duke of York, as so many people on Trip Advisor said is great. What a disappointment! The place is in a desperate need of update with furniture from the 60s and parts of ceiling coming off or missing. Food while in... More

Dinner Wed-Sun is prepared by Jimmy, the chef at what used to be Nick's Seafood before a hurricane destroyed the building. Absolutely delicious.

We asked if we could order something other than breakfast food and we were told we could...we are veggie eaters and we ordered salads and they were delicious. Service was great. Atmosphere pleasant. Lots of customers seemed to be enjoying their breakfast meals. Entire staff were friendly and happy to have the guests in the restaurant. A gem place to... More

Our server was awesome. But, the food was extra greasy and not jumbo shrimp(more like small). We all 3 ate a different entree so we could sample each other's. The flounder was bland, the jumbo shrimp were small and only partially breaded (and greasy) and the scallops were sitting in a pool of grease and rubbery. The hush puppies were... More

The food was very good and they brought you plenty! I had shrimp and the shrimp were definitely JUMBO! The staff was friendly also. The inside really needed some repairs and updating.
