When in OC I always eat at Yianni's. I get my scrapple fix in early and often. Food is always fresh and well prepared. Quality family run business. Highly recommend.

Yanni's is nicely located downtown in Ocean City and I have dined here in the past on visits to town. I don't know if they got a different cook but breakfast the easiest meal to prepare was awful. Start with toast that was basically just bread, it didn't spend much time in the toaster. Has browns were boiled potatoes, that... More

This was recommended to us by family and it is very good. We both had large salads with salmon and chicken. Everything was very fresh and delicious. We couldn't quite finish but we will be back. It is like a good diner on the heart of OC . Hostess was sincerely nice and helpful.

The sticky buns are out of this world. Everything we ate was excellent. The garden omelette was the best my brother-in-law said he has ever had.

I had visited the Yanni's in the Community Center and loved their food. But the menu is limited there. Had lunch with two friends at this location - the main restaurant and the service is quick, food is delicious and fresh. Large portions for the price. My only complaint was the volume of noise in the restaurant. It would be... More

We have been coming to Ocean City for years but never came here. We decided to try it off of the reviews here and it was amazing! The gyro platter was fresh and delicious....my only recommendation would be to get the sauce on the side because they put a little too much for my liking. My daughter had the chicken... More

If you want a great lunch or dinner in downtown Ocean City, GO TO YIANNIS! It's only 5 blocks from the boardwalk so you're never too far away to get a great meal! They have refreshing salads and great burgers as well as authentic Greek cuisine. The owner is very nice and a accommodating and the staff is always friendly.

This is a fabulous little restaurant. They have amazing Greek food and a big menu for non-Greek lovers alike. Personally, I would recommend the stuffed grape leaves and and gyro, but everything was good. The owner even brought out a banana for my 16 month year old daughter before we even ordered anything. Stay classy!

Wife & I had the grandkids "down the shore" for a few days at the end of June. Found this place for dinner by mistake. Thought it was an Italian restaurant we had visited last year. Was very pleasantly surprised. They were very accommodating to our 2 grandkids, 7&5, and suggested they share an adult pasta instead of getting 2... More
