Think Yorktown Pub is very good anytime .Been there many times and it's always very good !This time I had the peel marinated shrimp;they were delicious had a local brew .Shrimp were local and that was a plus.No oysters due to damage of oyster beds by the hurricane .If you go eat and enjoy!

The place is definitely a "dive", yet wait staff is friendly and the food is excellent. The Reuben was one of the best I've had and the potato salad was hands down the best I've had.

Nothing fancy on the inside or out, but service was quick and friendly and the clam chowder was marvelous. If we could have spent another day here definitely would have gone back for more.

The atmosphere was very casual as is the menu. we started with raw oysters on the half shell and found they were not completely shucked so we had to scrape the oysters out but they were fresh tasting. I had a daily special of grilled salmon with soy glaze and wild rice and my husband had blackened tuna. While the... More

This was recommended to us by a local for the scallops which were AMAZING. You could have them cooked and seasoned a few different ways and the blackend and fried were delish! The restaurant is very casual with a bar, seating tables and couple TVs with sporting events (we were there on a Sunday afternoon). Definitely a family place too... More

Very enjoyable lunch... Our immediate seating was a surprise since after we sat the waiting back up grew at an exponential rate. And we understood why when the terrific crab cake sandwich arrived....

The food is delicious here, lots of choices. The seafood is generally market price, but is still within reason. The staff was very very friendly, and honestly I don't think I've ever had faster service anywhere else... we literally sat, ordered, ate, paid, and left in about an hour. And if you get a window seat there are gorgeous views... More

The Yorktown Pub is a small pub located right across from the beach. The beer selection was good and the food was great. I had "The Rachel" a hot corned beef sandwich which was one of the best corned beef sandwiches I've ever had. If I was in Yorktown again, I'd definitely go back.
