We love the Yardely Inn. It's just a shame that they can't get the help they need. We felt so bad for our wait person who had more tables than she should have. We completely understood, but still not everyone does. Times are hard and the food industry is still sufferings. I did notice that there was very little chicken on the salads that two of us ordered. I love that salad. but this time ... not much chicken?
The restaurant was very busy. which is always a good sign. Next time (hopefully) things will be better.

Service was exceptional. Everyone made our anniversary feel very special, Portions were generous, well prepared and we appreciated the attention to detail.

The only minor issue was the noise level but that's to be expected on a weekend. We'll keep that in mind for future visits.

always high quality and great service. My wife is in a wheelchair and requires the ramp to get in and out of the restaurant. The staff at the front desk went out of their way to make sure she, and others I observed, safely and comfortably transited the ramp and steps.

Andy, our server, provided excellent service as always. I love the ambience of the Tavern room. Perfect low lighting. Andy was the bartender as well as serving 4 or 5 tables at the same time. I marveled at how effortlessly she handled everything. The timing of my courses was perfect. The food was very pleasant to the eye and served at the right temperatures. The grilled salmon on my Marguerite salad was perfectly cooked. My clam chowder was thick with clams and vegetables. It was an excellent dining experience.

Been going to this restaurant for over thirty years and it has changed.Our server Joelle was great but the restaurant seemed to be understaffed and the menu changed. The food was just fair and to take a chicken dish off a dinner menu seemed odd to me.In addition the presentation on the dish was fair too, like something just slopped on the plate not worth 38 dollars. I ordered from here during the quarantine many times and was pleased and I will still come back.

As always, the food and ambiance was perfect. Unfortunately, the service we received was way less than perfect. We had to ask for water and bread at least 3 times. We never had our waitress check with us to see if we needed refills on either item.

Dessert was ordered and our table was not cleared before it was served. So we ate it with dirty dishes on the table- something we don’t do at home. When my husband asked to have the dishes cleared, we were told we would have to wait until our waitress took someone else’s dessert order.

Not once did our waitress ask if everything was okay.

This was not our first time here- we have never had such a poor experience. Since previous experience’s were positive, we will return- but it will be with trepidation.

It was the first time I had been to the Yardley Inn. We went to celebrate an occasion and it was amazing. The staff was awesome; super friendly and helpful. The food was excellent. I got the pumpkin ravioli and it may the been the best thing I’ve ever eaten! I would 110% recommended this restaurant.

Exceptional service on a busy Monday. It was our anniversary and our first time at The Yardley Inn. We sat outside along the river on a beautiful evening. Our waitress was extremely busy but took care of our needs on time. The crackers that came with the bread were the best I’ve ever had. As appetizers we had the barbecue wings and shrimp cocktail - both large servings and tasty, both also plated on an eye catching display. For dinner we had the cheesesteak and filet with rainbow carrots - we were both blown away by how amazing the food was. We were celebrating our anniversary and we were given a champagne toast which was quite the nice start to our amazing evening at The Yardley Inn - we can’t wait to return!
