    I always go for the pork paprikash, which I love. My husband has had less luk the last two times we've been there. The first was meatloaf and this was short ribs. He thought the ribs lacked flvor, a sif they'd been boile dfor hours and there was nothing left. Really disappointing, since I took him there for his birthday.

    Terrific food, great atmosphere, and excellent service! Also, the waiter was very sensitive to our food allergies which made the experience all the better. We loved the bacon wrapped dates, and the salmon with black beans. The only downside was that the espresso was not authentic. It was very weak, not tasty. If this was improved, the experience would have been perfecto!

    If you want a good meal in a good atmosphere, this is the spot in Yardley. The Inn is good basic food. Don't expect cutting edge of a gastro experience, but you will get a very fair drink and an enjoyable experience.

    First time, but hopefully not the last. The place was full and somewhat loud, but our table for two still felt private and quiet. The menu is a great mix of traditional options with some twists and creative substitutions. The flavors of both my app and entrée were great. The server was also great: knowledgeable, attentive, and unobtrusive. A really positive experience overall.

    I took two business associates to lunch on a weekday and they were doing a pretty brisk business. Our food was good -- some spectacular, some not, but overall a good value (particularly the "Lunch for Less" menu) in a nice location. Our server was efficient and pleasant.

    We went to Yardley Inn on a recommendation for a Saturday evening dinner. The server was good-present but not obtrusive, but the food was mediocre. On arrival the dining room was relatively quiet and pleasant with several tables of adult diners. Shortly thereafter, a large party arrived to celebrate an anniversary. The problem was that they brought 3 small children from the ages of 1 to 3 with them. As expected, the children were not happy as there was nothing to entertain them and they were crying/noisy/running around etc. This would have been expected at an Olive Garden or other family restaurant, but we were led to believe that this was a special occasion restaurant. It may have been special for someone but not for us.

    A table for two with a view of the Delaware River flowing by was matched by the quality of a price fixed three course lunch at a modest cost. A delicious crab bisque with crab aplenty was followed by a sautéed chicken and string beans perfectly cooked. A sumptuous fresh fruit salad and espresso completed a lovely lunch experience.

    I work in the area so I make my way there now and again. I love the vibe and the fact that this neighborhood place has stayed so current over many years. The bar is great and they pour wine generously. The food can be average, as mine was this time. The setting is and was lovely. Slightly more consistent food would make a good place nearly great.

    Unfortunately, the night my date and I dined, there was a very fat and boisterous woman cow at the next table that bellowed so loudly half of the room thought someone was having a heart attack at their table. On the bright side, the food was fantastic and our server Courtney were wonderful.

    We try getting to the Yardley Inn every month or so because it's always good everytime we go. Food is always delicious, like the braised short ribs I had this visit, and the staff is always friendly offering excellent service. Never lets us down.

    I have eaten at the Yardley Inn many times but my last two visits have me wondering why I bother to eat there anymore. All I can say is we were so rushed that our meal was on the table minutes after we sat down. We were not even finished with our salads and appetizers. There was not even time to order a bottle of wine. On top of it my braised short ribs were terrible. In a nutshell the Yardley Inn is only good for drinks and a burger in the bar area. What was once a great place has taken a turn for the worse. It will be a long time before I consider going back.

    I had reservations on a surprising busy Monday night, what restaurant is busy on a Monday? I thought to myself, they must being doing something right to be busy. I went to bar to have a drink before going to our table. Wow, was I wowed! The service was so impressive, That we stayed at the bar to eat. We never eat at the bar but the 2 bartenders were super nice as well as Funny, we didnt want to leave the bar. They had 1/2 price bottles of wine, I felt like we hit the jackpot. I ordered the Swordfish dish & it was So delicious. I dont live that close but i will definitely be coming back couple times a month.

    Came on a late Saturday and it was still quite busy. The bar was full as we're the tables. We had very attentive service from Nancy. Started with a top-notch cheese plate and caesar salad. The site anchovies were very tasty! The perch on grits was beautifully prepared and the small serving was perfect after all we had eaten previously. We also had a favorite, the paprika, which never fails to satisfy. Topped off with a bottle of Tempranillo and the night was a winner!

    Thought third time here would be a charm, disappointed again. Food was average quality at best, lots of corners being cut on food quality to buffer profits and keep prices lower. Poor pairings made with main entrees really leave the meals flat. My escarole was like a weed from my back yard. Meatloaf was overcooked and underseasoned...came out like a brick. Peas and carrots with the meatloaf were clearly from a frozen package. Soup Of The Day was gone at 6:30pm. Service personnel were rather slow and inattentive.

    The Yardley Inn is quaint,cozy and comfortable. We ate there this past Saturday and had a delicious meal and fantastic cocktails. We were greeted by two very nice hostesses who say us immediately. We were then greeted by our waitress who had a chip on her shoulder and treated us like we were bugging her. Because it was a special occasion, I did not say anything for I did not want to make a scene in front of our other guests.(That was the only negative that night.) The rest of the service staff was courteous and nice. The pork paprikash and meatloaf were really good and the grilled peaches were dynamite and the bartender served one of the best martinis we have had in a long time We will definitely return for the food and cocktails!

    Took our visiting family to this gem for a meal straight from the airport. They were delighted with the view and intrigued by the menu. Everyone agreed it was one of the best, most delicious meals they had ever had. We had crab cakes, trout and scallops. The trout had bacon incorporated - a surprising flavor but so tasty! The service was impeccable.

    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.

    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.
