We dined here for 3 nights in a row while we were in the area. We absolutely loved it. It’s always busy and the food is delicious. Fast service and big portions. Highly recommend!

Menu items have greek names but the food is definitely not greek. Taste is very bland, greek food has a lot of garlic, which was missing. Variety is also limited. Overall, I was not impressed

For authentic style Greek food with a friendly owner and even friendlier staff this would be your choice. The Gyros we ordered, traditional beef and lamb, and the poultry gyro were huge, and very tasty. It's always crowded, and for good reason.

This was my second visit to Yanni's and it was just as good, if not better than the first. The food is very fresh and prepared with care. It's a great option for healthy, Mediterranean-type food and I recommend it highly.

It seemed like a place where everyone knew each other. We were welcomed in to the cute restaurant by an older woman who was hustling. I think she was the only one on the floor for the early lunch but she managed just fine and...More

We really did not expect much of a place that is in the middle of nowhere but this place hit a home run. We could tell right away that this place is good since it was packed. Never the less they quickly cleared a table...More

Stopped in for lunch after visiting the Museum at Bethel Woods. Happened upon Yannis when we couldn't find the McDonald's...a happy accident! The ambience is not much, but the menu is surprisingly diverse with gyros, Italian and Greek specialties as well as reubens, burgers, hot...More

I only stopped in for a bite to eat at lunch time and didn't think to ask about party platters. I was traveling from out of State, but it appears that another patron has answered that question for you.
