The staff is helpful and accommodating..We arrived with no reservation, but luckily got a table. We couldn't decide on one appetizer so we chose two and shared an entree. What fun, and delicious too! A small but quiet space we really enjoyed our dinner! We will be sure to return.

We returned to the YB for another great dinner. The service was very pleasant and attentive; the food was great. We enjoyed the chorizo flatbread as a starter-it was delicious and was a perfect size for our party of 4 to share. Entrees included repeats of the salmon and crab cakes, both served with pesto cous cous. Both were hits... More

First time visit for us. The food and service was great. The menu seemed a bit small at first, but it really had everything for everyone's taste.

We first went to this restaurant when it just opened. The food was very good, the service inconsistent but friendly. Today, however, marked the last time I tried to go there. I had made a reservation for 6 pm. Even though it was way too early for us, we decided to go in the hope that the dinner would actually... More

My husband and I have been coming to the Island for many years and always try at least 1 new restaurant each year. For the last 4 years our family has joined us. This is my 14 year old granddaughter's favorite place so dine here for dinner and 1 breakfast. Everyone loves this place.

Service was a bit slow with only one other table occupied in the establishment. The food was mediocre considering the many options in the area to choose.

Our favorite breakfast and dinner place in Cape May! It's fairly priced, portions are large and the food doesn't disappoint. The staff was very attentive and polite, we had Brandon as our server and he was very knowledgeable about the menu and gave great service. Highly recommended!!

YB has easily the best meals and deals on the shore. "Brother" restaurants George's, Panno, and Shamone are all fantastic in their own ways but YB has creativity and quality unlike anywhere else. The plates for any meal of the day are artistically set and the value is unbelievable for what you get.

Have been coming here since it opened. The food is amazing and I have never been let down. The chicken in waffle is bursting with flavor and would highly recommend it. The food is plated beautifully and you won't leave hungry! The service is very professional, the servers Corinne and Brandon are very attentive and knowledgeable. It is always on... More

There are some "environmental" things that were questionable at this restaurant, but i'll get to that later. Must start with the fact that the food was just wonderful. My wife and I had eaten a Happy hour snack a few hours earlier, so we weren't all that hungry and only got appetizers (plus), but now, we're anxious to go back... More
