Yankee Pier, a bustling and vibrant seafood house, offers chef Michael Dunn's ocean-fresh seafood "fresh from coast to coast". Local seafood, sourced in accord with the Monterey Bay Aquarium's Seafood Watch program, which promotes sustainable practices that are healthy for ocean wildlife and the environment, is presented with a nod toward New England. Live Maine lobsters, fresh-shucked oysters, an array of grilled fresh fish, and beer-battered full belly clams are some of the offerings, along with local produce, house-made desserts, a selection of all-American wines and a full bar.

We had a bit of a wait for our table, but the manager was great in keeping us posted about its/our status. He also bought dessert to apologize for the delay. Our waiter was friendly, helpful and efficient, and our meal was very good.

I loved it it was so good. The food was great and the service was so great too. The owner came around twice to see if we were enjoying our food didn't linger I just asked a question which was really nice. I'm gonna go back there again.

The owners appear to actively work in the business. Very nice people and the food is delicious as well.

We had an excellent lunch. We were late for our reservation but they still held a great booth for us. It was a pleasure to just sit and relax after a prolonged doctor appointment. The management went above the norm.

The food is always great. The service was very poor: the server came up to our table and asked "what will you have?"; no "hello" or the market prices, etc. The salad came right away, but the wine orders came back after our entrees were 1/2 way done. The entrees took at least 15 minutes and were cold. I really like YP, but this server needs to be fired.

We first tried this restaurant for a special occasion dinner of lobster and have been back many times since over the years. This is our favorite local restaurant because the food and service is consistently excellent. We never hesitate to recommend this restaurant to friends and relatives. The ambience could use some updating, but the food and service are the stars.

We loved the food and the service was good. It looked a little more "casual" than I was expecting for the price. But once we got the food and it was delicious we were overall very pleased with the experience.

Our first visit and when I made the reservation on OpenTable, I wrote that it was my husband's birthday. We both were not that hungry so we shared a main entrée, which was a shrimp louie, which was presented to us, split on two separate plates. Before our entrée was finished, I showed our waiter the message I left on Open Table regarding my husband's birthday. He smiled and asked if we wanted to see the dessert menu. We chose two different desserts. I assumed the restaurant or the waiter would have offered a free dessert for my husband for his birthday, but when we got the bill, we were charged for both desserts. I was surprised at this as most restaurants offer some type of complimentary dessert for birthdays, so I was a little annoyed as why bother mentioning an occasion. For one entrée, 2 non-alcoholic drinks (coke & ice tea) 2 desserts, our bill came to $62.79, then we left a 20% tip. I thought the prices were a bit high. Not sure if we will return.
