    Yardley Inn was outstanding. Great food - interesting menu, not your typical faire, everything sounded delicious. Best short ribs I've ever had and pork paprikash was outstanding. Waiter was pleasant and just attentive enough that we felt well taken care of. Warning - outdoor dining area has great river views but right on the street so can be a bit noisy, but such great food and service I can certainly excuse a little noise.

  • Restaurant week menu:misleading....

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    I live in the area and have been to the Yardley Inn many times. It's location and convenience make this a nice local place to go. But I ask myself why it gets such high ratings when in fact the food is average? And pricey? We again gave this place a shot during restaurant week with many unconventional and standard items offerred and advertised for a set price for 3 courses (21.99). However, many of the choices had surprise additional up charges associated. Crab cakes were additional, filet was $6 more, and if you wanted crab bisque, add $3.We were astounded that these were even included as part of the special menu! So Yardley Inn, next time we go local, we will choose one of our other fine dining establishments in town....bad advertising!

    I had my 50th birthday party at the Yardley Inn back in 1996 and I have been a fan ever since. The service is wonderful and I always feel welcome when I walk in. Greeted by the hostess with a smile and willingness to help. The bartenders are terrific. They may not remember my name, but they surely know what I drink--best martini in town, by the way. Since I am well into my 60s, I never feel uncomfortable and it is the one place I will stop in on my own to have a drink at the bar, or lunch in the dining room. Thank you staff and chef.

    We've been to the Yardley Inn many times. This day was a gorgeous August day so we asked to be seated with a view of the river. Our server was very prompt, knowledgable and nice. We were with some relatives from out of town. They remarked frequently that the food was excellent. We were there for Restaurant Week Sunday Brunch. So the price was great too! I recommend this place 100%!

    We went for restaurant week, but found they normally offer the prix fixe options several nights a week. It was a great deal. The four of us had hanger steak, salmon, trout, and beef burguignon - all delicious. beautiful setting by the river. Our main complaint was that it got too loud to hear our conversation.

    We have tried the YI before, it seemed hit or miss. Tried restaurant wk.. Portions..not so good, gas grill taste on steak, chewy, flavorless octopus, soggy over cooked fries, watered downed blue cheese dressing, aioli, watermelon gazpacho tasted like it was made two days ago. Not a great experience. What staff was fantastic!

    Granted it was restaurant week in Yardley but we had a terrible meal. 2 of us were seated at 7 PM and did not leave until 8:45, service was slow and all the food was overdone. My skate was burnt and the breading on the 2nd one was so salty it was inedible (also underdone) and my husband's filet was barely pink, was supposed to be medium rare, with a $7 up charge! We usually love to dine there but we won't be returning soon, there was obviously no quality control. Very disappointing...............

    Nice, old inn feeling, cozy, but contemporary, also plenty of sunlight coming in. Dining room window tables look out to the Delaware River. Pleasant servers, nice food choices, reasonable prices. The menu was marked with asteriks for gluten free dishes, indluding a couple appetizers, several salads, and several main dishes. Very wonderful to have those options! Wish there had been a gluten free dessert option as well. Ordered the mango sorbet to share with non-gf pal (even thought it wasn't asteriked), forgot to ask if it was gf (just assumed it was since most sorbet's safe) but looked it up on my phone after asking the server what brand it was. It was Bassett's, on Bassett's website they list what's gf... the mango sorbet is not gf.

    My wife and I enjoyed the Yardley Inn and Restaurant very much. The food was very good and the service was good as well. It was a little loud and we were not asked if we wanted to sit indoor or outdoor. I would have liked to sit outside. The noise inside was a little loud for our liking as well. The overall experience was very good. I would certainly go back and recommend it to other people.

    Great lunch on the patio with old friends. Never rushed and the service picked up quickly that we were going to enjoy each other's company and spend lots of time catching up. Patio was nice but could have had an umbrella on our side. Even though on roadside traffic was not annoying. I have been here numerous times over the years and it is always a pleasant staff and food is above expectations.

    My Mom stumbled upon the Yardley Inn on a google search and I am so happy she did. The food was elegant but simple, and very delicious. The Tuesday night 3-course dinner deal was a great option. I had the soup du jour (a cold vegetable soup- very tasty), salmon with broccoli rabe and raspberry sorbet for desert! My Mom had a salad and the lemon chicken which was very good. A great find and we can't wait to go back!

    My review is focused on the food and beverage during a Thursday eve. Recent years have shown terrific upgrades to YI's dining experience; lunch is outstanding and consistent. This dinner was disappointing. Cocktails were rushed and I had to ask service to slow it down. The fish dishes, specifically their signature salmon: Dry Dry Dry; not the customary succulent quality. Lentils were sparse and broccoli rape sloppy. Gee-. My companion's trout was tasteless and smothered in some ?? sauce with ?? vegetables. I don't believe in shooting the messenger, but she is experienced and I expect accurate plating for $140.00 bill. Under the heat lamps too long? Busy night no excuse. Please return to quality enjoyed previously

    Stopped in for lunch. Ordered a filet mignon cheese steak that was delicious and quite notable. Truthfully, they could have used a lesser cut and it would still be great. They made a nice cheesesteak. We also got salads that were delicious as well. Only problem...no room for dessert. We have been there many times before and we plan to return. Highly recommended.

    Three of us had lunch this past Sunday. Our table afforded us a great view of the river. We split an order of beef spring rolls and a Caesar Salad. The spring rolls were very good. The salad was nothing special. I could not detect any anchovies in the dressing. Entrees were a grilled Reuben, crab cake with mashed potatoes and fish and chips. My wife couldn't find any sauerkraut on her sandwich. My mother in law's crab cake had more filling than crab. My fish and chips consisted of three nice pieces of pollock sitting on top of greasy, house cut fries. No bread and butter at the beginning of our meal. Service was slow considering that the restaurant was less than half full.

    We eat at the Inn very regularly and usually have a great time. Despite the restaurant being slow, we were sat almost on top of the band. Service was so slow that we went without drinks until the appetizers arrived, when we needed refills no one was to be found. Our dinner arrived and my steak was cold to the touch, we didn't see our server until after my husband finished his meal (20 minutes or so). When I shared my steak was inedible, the response I received was do you want me to reheat it or take it home for tomorrow. The server further overheard my husband and I discussing his birthday and decided to put a candle in my desert for him. This led to a very uncomfortable moment for us since my husband does not celebrate his birthday.

    My wife and I went to the Inn for the first time to celebrate her birthday. We enjoyed a Bastille Day special dinner that was quite good, along with a bottle of temperanillo that was half price. The meal was quite good. I did not like my initial choice for first course, but our excellent server quickly took it back and replaced it with a much better choice. Overall, we enjoyed a very good meal, good wine and first-rate service. RECOMMENDED.

    We have been coming to the Yardley Inn for several years on special occasions and the food has always been excellent. We visited for our anniversary (7/14/14) and we were quite disappointed in the food. I ordered the grilled salmon with black lentils and broccoli rabe. The salmon was overdone and the broccoli rabe was so overcooked and limp. I will say the lentils were good. My husband had a filet which was good, but the creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes were dried out -- like they had been under a heat lamp for too long. Also, the noise level is quite annoying if you are sitting anywhere near the bar.

    The Yardley Inn is generally has good food, service, and atmosphere. However, their special Bastille Day dinner was a bust. The escargot is one of my favs but it looked thrown together and had minimal flavors that didn't work well together. The baked cherry dessert had the pits left in the five or so cherries. No warning from the server. Surprise! The main courses were good.
