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

We had dinner tonight. The swordfish tacos were incredible!! My husband had the herb chicken and loved it. I had the crab cakes and they were awesome! Mostly crab and limited filler which is wonderful but rare in restaurants these days. We split the cheesecake with Nutella whipped cream - yum! It's a BYOB. It was a wonderful dinner for... More

Been coming to Cape May for years, passed this place a thousand times while strolling Beach Ave and are kicking ourselves WHY we have only tried it once! This place rocks. My wife and I started with their beet salad and swordfish taco appetizers - both done amazingly well with textures and tastes that were fantastic. For our main courses,... More

Being a chef it's hard for me to find a great place to go out to eat. I have always gone to YB for their amazing breakfast. One night my gf and I decided to try it for dinner. Words cannot explain how amazing the food is. My gf and I shared the tuna taco apps. WOW! The best I... More

Dinner was outstanding on all counts, so we returned for breakfast the next day. It surpassed the dinner. Not only was the food and service exceptional, but the all you can eat breakfast was $8! And the best quality we have encountered in our 18 years of breakfast in Cape May.
