We had a very nice dinner here on a busy August night. I had the lobster risotto, which was rich and filling. My daughter really enjoyed the coriander crusted tuna and mashed potatoes, and her friend loved the cedar plank salmon. I appreciated that it was BYOB, because I got the wine I really like at a great price. Service... More

This is always a "must" place to eat when we are in the area. Food is always excellent. I know some people of experienced spotty service, but we never have. Love that the area is "dry" and you can bring your own alcohol. That helps keep the cost resonable.

Went here in a Wednesday night and it was not that busy. Waited 20minutes and never got a server to come to our table. 3 other parties came,in after us and got a server before us. The hostesses excuse was that the server had a party of 11 and was bringing out salads. She then said that she told the... More

Had an incredible meal here: wonderful, tasty crab cakes, great Caesar salad, the almond encrusted haddock was insanely good. Couldn't have been happier, highly recommend!

The experience only be considered a disappointment. We did arrive without a reservation, and were seated relatively quickly on what was obviously a busy evening, but things went downhill from there. The service was slow in the single and VERY noisy large dining room. When my wife's fish finally arrived, it was seriously dry and overcooked. To their credit, they... More

We ate at Yellowfin's based on a recommendation from the managers of The Beach House and are so glad we went! We may not have found this hidden gem of it wasn't for their local restaurant advice. The food and service were excellent. Plus, being able to bring our own wine was fantastic. We will surely be back and will... More

My wife and our son had a great dinner at Yellowfin's (a BYOB) located in Ocean park (a bit south of Old Orchard). Elegant decor, not too crowded and tasty cuisine. The lobster bisque, lazy man's lobster were fantatic. They have a good choice of meals for people who don't like seafood or allergic to it. Chicken pasta and salmon... More

As managers of The Beach House in OOB, we have been recommending Yellowfin's to our guest for dinner and the reviews that came back were always positive so we finally decided to try them out ourselves. To say we were pleased is an understatement! Nick our waiter was wonderful and attentive to our every need! The food was great! Everyone... More

Beautifully decorated with prints of the Old Orchard Beach area by Robert Cohen. Very Key West like. Cottage feel to it. White linen table clothes to dress it up. There is a large gorgeous salt water fish tank. Really fun to sit near. It's a BYOB-Bring your own bottle, so it brings the price down. We always call ahead because... More

A magnificent meal, freshly cooked fish, beautifully presented and David, the owner, is a wonderful host. Cannot fault this restaurant at all. But be aware that it is a BYO so take a bottle of wine with you. Have fun.
