    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.

    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%!

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.

    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.
