Excellent lunch with a business associate. Service was excellent. Menu additions were great. I had the risotto and my associate had the soft shell crab. I recommend this restaurant for all types of dining - friends, business, etc.

My wife had the crab cake entree and she enjoyed it so much that she craves about the sides up to a few days after having them.

Friendly people at front desk
Honored request to sit at window
Like making reservation on line
Friendly server but seemed to busy to attend to us. Wife would have liked second drink but server never asked and was so absent we couldn’t ask
Cheeseburger was very good, but wife’s crab cake was not cold but very barely warm
Observing menu and prices (in line), I was expecting (perhaps wrongly) tablecloth/high end Restraunt. Was surprised and disappointed it was not

This place exceeded my expectations! A friend and I went for lunch. Our waitress Daria was very knowledgable and made excellent recommendations. He had the quiche with salad greens and fresh fruit, and I had the burger with brie cheese and fries — my burger was prepared to perfection with just a hint of pink! I will definitely be going back!

The atmosphere was very nice. The apps were delicious, we ordered a 3 cheese place, and the devils on horseback. My girlfriend ordered the monk fish and very much enjoyed it. I ordered the strip steak on special, and for a $39, it honestly was not that special. I think I could have gotten more apps and would have enjoyed my meal a lot more. I noted there wasn't any other steak options on the menu before I ordered. So I'm guessing this just isn't a place to get a steak. I think I would go back.

Not as good as our 1st visit & I attribute it to our server. He was abrasive & passive aggressive although he thought he was funny I guess. He was bossy with our cheese plate selection TELLING us what he was going to give us instead of letting us choose, even though we were asking for descriptions. We realized afterwards it was because he didn't know the cheeses & how to describe them. If he doesn't want to learn the types of cheese then he should realize they were all very detailed on the dessert menu which we found out later & he could've given that to us! Disappointing because I would've ordered 2 different cheeses than what we had. Note: a swiss is NOT the same OR similar to a cheddar! I asked for a change of a side & he decided to change my whole dish except my protein. The last straw was his many "drive bys". He couldn't take a second to stop, he'd drop things off as he kept walking. The food tasted good but the whole experience was disappointing compared to our great experience last time (different server).

Very good. Service a little spotty at first. Food was good although calamari slightly chewy, quiche a bit overdone, and fruit not quite ripe. Lunch is a pretty good deal compared to dinner (much more expensive). Annoyed I made a reservation and it wasn't checked off by hostess though.

The Inn has been doing it so well for many years. The staff is relaxed, friendly and knowledgeable. A window view is even more perfect, One seems to be surrounded with congenial, happy folk.

My pasta dish was undercooked. After sending it back to the kitchen, the dining manager wanted to compensate with a dessert and had to be persuaded to take it off the bill when We refused dessert.

We were seated near a loud party and asked to move.
Our wine was not delivered with our food and we had to request it.

Overall, a disappointing dining experience. The appetizers were good!!!

Waited forever for our meal. The restaurant was very hot. Appetizer vegetables we order all over cooked and a pharaoh under two of the fish dishes was undercooked. The salmon had a funky taste and the trout was flavorless. we have dined there often and have always been pleased in the past. This time we took new people and we were very embarrassed.

I requested a table with a view of the river for an out of town guest via Open Table. Yardley Inn gave us a great table as requested. Thanking them for honoring this request. Everyone was friendly and went out of their way to make us feel welcome.

First time there- highly recommend! Had a wedding anniversary at the Inn this week and had requested a nice table with a view. Michelle set us up with a front corner table with view of the Delaware. Perfect. Complimentary champagne for the occasion. Service was spot on- timely and unobtrusive. Food was excellent, capped by a ganache for dessert. Noise was moderate and acceptable. Prices were moderate to high but appropriate for the quality and location. Overall a very good experience.

We have been driving to the Yardley Inn from the Jersey Shore several times a year for pork paprikash. Tonight we were surprised and disappointed that the Inn no longer serves their signature dish. Although the food we had was good, it did not measure up to our favorite dish. Looks like the Yardley Inn will be off our list until they start serving pork paprikash again. Oh well. It was delicious while it lasted.
