Description: Yabba Island Grill is the perfect spot in town for the grandchildren, grandparents and the kid in all of us! Yabba offers a casual fun island atmosphere, where you don't have to dress up, and if you do, you'll still feel at home. At Yabba's everything's cool! Every Friday and Saturday night, we go late night with an Island party for the younger "natives". The rest of the week is as calm as an island breeze…

“Fun food and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Really enjoyed this restaurant , ate there twice for lunch. GREAT frozen drinks, especially the Pina Colada and Banana Rama. Fabulous burger...warning, it is HUGE! Coconut shrimp are also good. Patio area is nice for people watching and relaxing. They do have a very limited menu between the hours of 2:30-5:00, just to be aware. Overall great food, good service and fantastic drinks. would definitely return!

“Nice, but not worth it”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2013

Decided to check it out after reading the reviews. had lunch. Place wasn't anything special as far as i was concerned. we had a salad and a appetizer, with an ice tea and a water. Cost us 34.00 dollars with a tip. Waitress took our order and delivered our bill. Never checked on us once. couldn't get a water refill. Location is right in the heart of the upscale shopping district and you can eat outside which is nice if you want to watch all the shoppers. This area of town is full of upscale pricey establishments, and i just didn't see where this place had anything over and above any of the others. Most of the places on this block will deliver a tasty lunch for 40 bucks a couple. If that's your cup of tea, by all means, check it out. i don't think you'll get a bad meal here, but i also dont think you'll be talking about making it a "habit" every time your in the area.

“Poor quality food and service”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013 via mobile

The quality of the food and service at Yabba Island Grill was very disappointing. The waitress was rude and angry. It was Easter Sunday and we came after church, we picked this place due to the outdoor seating in central Naples. I wish we had read the reviews first, this place is an overpriced, dirty dive bar at best. The waitress took the liberty to add a tip of 20 percent, we were a party of 5 (2 children) and this was in violation of their policy on automatic gratuities. The manager was unapologetic for the waitresses behavior. Would never go back, there are many better options in Naples.

“Great food unfriendly hostess”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2013

The food was delicious but we almost didn't eat there due to the very rude hostess. Not sure why she was so angry but she made our first impression of the restaurant unfavorable. Thank goodness for our server and the quality of the food. Great meal but the hostess has got to go.
