Delicious bbq! My ribs were flavorful without any grease and my husband’s pulled pork looked delicious. My children were both happy with their meals and even happier meeting the restaurant’s mascot. I hope to visit again as he menu had so many options. Spectacular looking...More

This is a quirky, friendly, food feast. Great chilled atmosphere and what can I say about the food. I miss this place and will be visiting next time I’m in Florida. Top of the list.

Yellow Dog has a great varied menu and it is all delicious. It's casual. You order at the counter, but it is really good mostly healthy food. Yellow Dog does a great job with flavor and presentation.

While visiting my brother, we were introduced to this very cool restaurant. It reminded me of Key West. The specialty is barbecue. You order up front and put your number on your table and they bring it to you. Hubby had a "What the fig"...More

Had lunch here with a friend/buisness associate on their recommendation. Loved the patio dining area out the back with the cooling fans. The music was great but a bit too loud to be able to have a conversation without almost yelling at each other (which...More

You will not be disappointed if you are looking for delicious, original and fresh food. Small - local "hidden gem". Worth the drive from Orlando..or further, for that matter! Fun atmosphere - friendly staff and "crazy owner....Fish!". A well trained chef with lots of personality....More

I agree with the above comments. They do make most everything they serve so I am sure that if you are catering they will insure that your order is as specified regarding allergens. The owners take pride in the food they... More

I am happy to say even with a long wait (we went on Mothers Day) it was well worth it. The place is fun and entertaining. Your party can get a drink and go sit on the patio while you stand in line to order. Once your order... More
