“Great place with great food!”
Reviewed December 29, 2013

We, a family of five, went to the Yellow Dog Cafe for dinner on Christmas Eve. The place didn't really look much from the road side but once we got in we found a beautiful restaurant right by the river side. Excellent view and really friendly and serviceminded staff. We had both fish and meat dishes and they were all perfectly cooked and very tasty.
I would recommend a visit to the Yellow Dog Cafe. We will definitely go there again the next time we come to Florida!

“5 star..”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

what you expect at a fine dining establishment. Everything is top notch from seating to dessert. Food, presentation,service all do not disappoint. You WILL pay for the experience,but won't feel cheated. If I HAD to find a dark spot, about all I could say is that the view is better from some tables than others,easily overcome with proper reservations

“ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

My wife and I are self-proclaimed foodies and this restaurant ranks up there with the best of them. Not only was the food, service, ambience and view spectacular, but the valet came in after we sat down to let us know that we had a flat tire. The owner came over and told us he would take care of everything. Despite it raining, I went outside to see the actual owner under the car plugging the tire (despite pleading with him to let me call AAA).

“Beautiful Property, A Little Pricey”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

From the front of the restaurant, we thought it would be the perfect place to stop in for a beer and an appie after a round of golf. You would never believe the inside from the outside - beautiful inside dining areas and two stunning outdoor dining areas. We definitely felt like schlubs when we walked in the front door, but the owner and hostess made us feel completely welcome. The menu was in the $35-$40 price range for entrees, which is not what we were prepared to spend. We ordered a couple of drinks, ordered two delicious appetizers (seared tuna and shrimp and grits), and with tax and tip it came to about $50. Service was terrific (Alicia). Had we been prepared for the menu prices and upscale atmosphere we would have loved to had dinner there. Don't let the outside fool you - this restaurant is a beauty.

“Hit or Miss”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

I really want to love this place...after having one good meal we returned and had a horrible experience. It must have been a fluke. The Yellow Dog is pricey, so we waited for my husbands birthday to return and give it another shot. Nope. Once again, service was sub par and food was just not good. Grilled asparagus was burnt to ash, fish was swimming in greasy sauce. For the price, there are better eats in Brevard. Sorry Yellow Dog.
