If you love sandwiches, especially healthy ones, this place was made for you. They offer a good variety of foods, but my most frequent order consists of the "fluffy love" sandwich along with their potato salad. Yum! Side note - I have found a hair in my food on two separate occasions (both takeout), so I'm not as big of... More

The food is excellent. There's usually a line - so come patient! It's worth it! The only thing my family had to say was that there was a 'weird' taste to the soda. As if the water it was mixed with was not filtered. I did not try it myself but it was 100% commented on from the folks in... More

After hearing my friends rave about this place, we come to find out that there's just one gluten free option on the menu. Just one.

I always get the Brie and apple sandwich and my hubby loves all the different pork sandwiches. We love the bohemian feel and live music out on the patio. It's so nice to have a restaurant that's not a chain or or cookie cutter replica. Owner and Chef Fish is often there and he makes you feel like a friend!

First time visitor. We had dinner with kids. Found Yellow Dog Eats through TripAdvisor. Kids live in Tampa and we drove from Treasure Coast. Absolutely wonderful restaurant. Fun and eclectic place to eat. Food was delicious and the staff fantastic. If you like BBQ, this a must do restaurant.

My wife and I had an early dinner there a couple of days ago. We each had a Bloody Mary and they came with a slice of bacon lazily hanging over the rim of the glass. Very very good! The tacos and pulled pork were great, but the salted caramel cheesecake was absolutely the very best.

A colleague mentioned this place. Boy did we have a fun lunch. Atmosphere is great and the music added to our dining experience. The wait staff helped us figure out what to order as the menu goes on and on with selections. We can't wait to take our out of town guests here.

Yellow dog eats is a very funky unique place and worth a visit if you are sick of the same old chain places! Food was ok, pulled pork was very nice but the Salads were just ok. The bus in the outside area was really cool and the kids loved playing in it. My major issue with the place was... More

1st visit but not the last, they have really, really good sandwiches and beer. There seems to be a lot of kids here and their parents are letting them run amok so we ordered another round to help drown their noise out. Going to try the one in NSB next.

Dont really need to say much else haha, food is incredible and at a very affordable price. Ive been to many BBQ restaurants in Florida and none have come close. It also has a very unique look which is great. Highly recommend!
