    We love the relaxed feel of this place – like a comfortable dining room in a friends home. We definitely would return to try more dishes. My husband had the New York CheeseSteak sandwich with waffle cut fries, and a cup of the potato soup. I had the pan sautéed yellow lake perch with garlic mashed potatoes and fresh steamed veggies with a house salad and house dressing. It was absolutely delicious! We HIGHLY RECOMMEND this wonderful little gem!

    Started out great, good cocktails, appetizer and salad. I ordered an item that had a filet with bernaise sauce and lump crab meat and my wife ordered the baked cod. It took way to long between the salad and main course and the place was not crowded and no explanation. Waiter was a very nice guy but seemed to be getting more scarce by the minute. The filet was perfect but the crab meat was minuscule at best. The cod was bland and not hot, very bad texture. The waiter did offer another entree but we declined because we did not want to wait and not eat together, so I shared my meal with my wife. The free desert we accepted was OK but the digressing experience we were having probably contributed to that. Not in a hurry but 2+ hrs. not good.

    I was searching for someplace special to take my husband for his birthday dinner. A co-worker recommended Yesterday's. I have not lived in the area for too many years, so I am not real familiar with the area. I took my co-workers recommendation and was pleasantly surprised to discover ithat Yesterday's is everything she told me it would be. Great food, very friendly service and an indescribable atmosphere.

    I took my girlfriend out for her birthday and chose Yesterday's making me look like a fool. This was single handedly the worst dining experience I've ever had, and on such a special day for her. We were asked to order our food before our drinks. I had to bring it up. The sodas then came 20 mins later and were wrong. Our food arrived about an hour after sitting down. This was not the biggest problem however. We were never brought our salads and bread. Only after asking about them did the waitress bring them after getting our food. Our steaks were not cooked correctly, one of them so raw in the middle I advised my girlfriend to not eat it. Only was offered 1 free dessert as compensation. Couldn't wait to get out of there!(2 hours later..)

    Dined on 9/5/2014
    We were unaware of the "select" menu during Notre Dame weekend so that was very disappointing as we knew what we wanted before we got there and then it wasn't even available. Prices were sky high. We had difficulty selecting something that we wanted to eat. The place has nice ambiance but it was so loud in there that you couldn't even hear yourself think much less have a conversation with someone without having to yell across the table. The desserts should be offered on a menu so you can actually read and consider what you really want, plus be aware of the price. I ordered cheesecake and quite frankly, I can do better plus mine tasted stale at the end. Not so sure we will be back.

    The food continues to impress. The brie appetizer was outstanding. Entrees of coconut shrimp and the nightly special of duck with blackberry sauce were excellent. There are some good wine values as well (although many bottles are overpriced). It does seem to take a long time for the food to arrive at the table, but when it comes, enjoy!

    Fun place to celebrate a birthday or anniversary. Excellent menu choices and food was delicious. The Black and Blu Steak was so tender it almost melted in my mouth! Desserts were absolutely wonderful. VERY difficult to choose as there were so many and all looked fantastic. Ended up choosing Chocolate Cream Pie and the Four Berry Torte. GREAT CHOICES! Service was friendly, knowledgeable, and very attentive without being overly attentive. Absolutely will go back SOON>

    Ryan, our waiter, did an outstanding job making our first experience at Yesterday's a memorable one. My husband ordered a pasta dish. The menu described it made w/angel hair pasta but he requested fettucine, his request was granted with no problem. My choice was the pecan crusted walleye, although my personal opinion was the pecans overwhelmed the fish and ended up scrapping most of it off…although I discovered the nuts tasted great with my sweet potato on the side…so I was a happy camper in the end. We loved the eclectic decor and memorabilia everywhere, what a whimsical atmosphere to dine in. We will definitely be back to sample the rest of the menu in the near future.

    Yesterday's was highly recommended by others so we went for a special occasion and were pretty let down. Upon walking in I wasn't impressed at all. There was junk/pictures EVERYWHERE and the hostess? kept her back to us while she talked to us about where we wanted to sit, she was too busy with something else behind the counter. We chose to sit outside... it was all mismatched PLASTIC patio chairs, a couple tables had newer sling style chairs. The whole atmosphere was confusing and did not feel like a nice restaurant. It was like a mix of a tiki bar and a dive bar. The food was good...but not great. The service was quite slow for it being later in the evening and not very busy. The menu/pricing does not match the decor at all.

    The staff were very nice, however, we had a reservation and we still had to wait, in a very small space, for 30 minutes. After waiting at the table for 20 minutes, we had to ask a busboy passing by for water. Waited another 15 minutes before we were able to place our orders. My son set a timer to see how long it would be between placing our orders and getting our entrees...49 minutes. (We did get the soups/salads in between.) My food was cold, and nothing really to rave about. Supposedly known for their desserts, the server presented this horrible pile with of all them mushed together. Very unappetizing. Because the people were friendly we would like to recommend it, but there were just too many issues.

    I had heard good things about Yesterday's so I reserved a table for two to celebrate a 31st wedding anniversary. It was on a week night at 5:00pm. I had never been there for a meal. They opened at 4:00pm but the server was slow to greet us because she was still prepping for the evening. After greeting us she was helpful and attentive. Half way through the meal, a larger group came in and our server disappeared. The salad was drenched in dressing; the tomatoes were overripe, dark and mushy; the sweet potatoes were overcooked and too fibrous to eat and belonged in the trash not on a plate; and the fruit pie had too much cinnamon. My wife's food was good except for the pasta which was overcooked and clumped together. Paid $90 for a bad meal.

    We went there at noon for mothers day and the restaurant was pretty full but we did see several empty tables. The service was extremely slow bordering on annoying. Took almost a half hour between ordering our salads and having them brought to the table. Entres were about the same and the desert times were worse. Six of us ordered desert and after twenty minutes our waiter delivered three and did not come back to the table with the other three desserts for another ten minutes. The only issue was ridiculous time between courses.. Overall the food quality was great and portions were generous, especially the salads and deserts. Start to finish were were there just under three hours.

    Food was great as usual. The time we waited for service and our food was less than desirable! The restaurant was not busy however we waited a very long time at the door, at our table, and almost 30 min for our deserts that are already made. Scott was our waiter and he was fantastic just as he was the last time he took care of my table. Just wish the wait time was not as long as it was.

    My wife and I went out to dinner at Yesterday's for our anniversary. It was probably fifteen years since we last visited as we moved out of the state and recently returned. Overall we loved the food and service but the décor looks like it was decorated using garage sale and flea market junk; they even had Christmas lights strung throughout the room we were in. Considering this is a very old farm house I believe they should try to build on that theme and not the over cluttered look they have. It is a shame to have such great food served in such a gaudy atmosphere. They would be a great candidate for the “Restaurant Makeover” TV show; the food is right there but the décor surely needs a lot of decorating help.

    We've been to Yesterday's many times over the past 10 years, but it seems the service level has declined, but prices continue to increase. We asked to be moved from the first table because of how noisy it was and it took 2.5 hours from start to finish for our table for four. Our waiter was very pleasant, but the time it took for the meal was too long. The desserts are great, but for the cost of the rest of the meal I can think of other places to eat. I think this place is better for lunch.

    This was our first time there and I can't say enough about this place. The decor was spot-on considering the name. Everyone there was friendly and very attentive to our needs. My wife has a lot of food allergies and they were more than happy to accomidate her. The food was delicious and the portions were huge. I had the Prime Rib with garlic mashed potatoes. It was so tender. The whole desert tray looked fantasitic and we ended up getting the Apple Dumpling for 2. Wow, it was the size of a normal apple pie! Of course after the huge meal we had, we ended up taking most of that home. Great place!

    My wife and I celebrated an anniversary here after recommendations from many friends and it lived up to all the anticipation! The menu is diverse and features many unique sauces and preparations. We ordered an appetizer, soups, entrees, and dessert; the entree and dessert portions were generous. The pacing of the meal was perfect. One portion didn't come out until we had finished the previous one, so we were able to enjoy each portion at the appropriate temperature. We got our dessert to go because we were so full, but the waitress still brought out their dessert feature tray to choose from which shows a slice of each of their cakes and pies; these alone are worth going for!
