Yabba Island Grill
Been going here for yearsBeen going here for years and it never disappoints. Their early menu is a great bargain with a nice selection of dishes. The flounder was a hit at our table.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMIn love!Loved everything about this place, the only thing hanging from giving this place 5 stars instead of 4 is the typical Naples prices. Other than that, great place! Try the passion fruit mojito!!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent experienceStarting with being seated in a great semi-circular booth and ending with a shared bananas Foster, our experience was top-notch. Our waiter (Mike H.) was very knowledgeable, the service was excellent and everything we ordered was absolutely delicious.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGood Food for a PriceYabba is always reliable for unfailingly good food and professional service. Younger visitors flock to this restaurant, which has a fun vibe and decor. My ONLY criticism of this place, or many of the Old Naples restaurants, is what we old timers call "Naples prices." All four of us had one of the chef's signature dishes, a crispy spicy grouper that is really outstanding. But at some $33, no matter how good it is, it seems like a rip. The Caesar salad is better than average, but the 95 cents extra for anchovies seems classless. We usually leave Old Naples to the tourists and the silly prices are the main reason.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSuper Island TastesThis evening was way better than the one I remember from years ago. The server was attentive, the menu selection wide and very islandy. The specialty drink tasted like a liquid watermelon Jolly Roger hard candy, & that's a good thing! Killer french fries, crunchy outside, soft and hot inner part. Cuban sandwich and fish tacos very tasty and fresh. Only small issue was the cold air conditioned air wafting onto the outside seating area. It was a gorgeous evening and then a blast of a/c would hit my back.4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMOverall Yabba is a gret experience.Overall Yabba is a gret experience.

We will definitely visit this restaurant more often in the future.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMthe evening was fun and wethe evening was fun and we had a great time our server was great.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time back in yearsWe've eaten at Yabba on and off for the last 15 years. A few years ago we had a couple of poor meals and hadn't returned until yesterday. We had a wonderful table along Fifth Ave and the server, Adam, was outstanding. The food was very well prepared, and Adam made amends when I commented on the small portion of Mahi that I had ordered in comparison to my wife's salmon. As with any restaurant on Fifth Ave, you pay extra for the location. But it's worth it so long as you have. Good meal, and good service, as we had at Yabba's.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat kid friendly spot ExcellentGreat kid friendly spot

Fun atmosphere. Good place to eat outdoors overlooking the plaza and busy Fifth Ave. Great cornbread! The appetizer salads are good-sized so my husband & I like to share one, but they won't divide it in the kitchen, instead bringing one salad and one empty plate - annoying! This is not a salad whose presentation would be ruined by dividing. Last night at Roy's our friends said they wanted to split the wedge salad & it came out on two plates - that is customer-centered good service.1/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
