Nice place but portions are small and quite expensive. One crabcake with potatoes and corn $27. My wife had a turkey BLT $17 good but bacon was under done and sandwich dry indicating the kitchen was in a hurry

We sat outdoors, under a large tent. The weather was perfect, the food quite tasty. My friend, traveling from Center City Philadelphia, took a wrong turn on the highway (signage had changed in the 18 months since we'd seen each other), and was 45 minutes late. No problem from the Yardley Inn staff. Our server was excellent -- just enough attention, delightful manner, plus she knew who the Bobsey Twins were, and could exchange Astrology predictions with my friend. There was an extremely noisy large party at the other end of the tent, and I found myself happy that we weren't inside, where their screeching would have been even more disturbing. The Yardley Inn never disappoints.

The last 2 visits I ordered a salad as my main dish. Both times the produce was old and fruit spoiled. The restaurant comped the meals however my feedback is this should not have ever left the kitchen. The chef needs to be proud of their creations. The server should’ve noticed and attended to fixing. The customer should not be in a position to send sub par food back to the kitchen.

Love the Yardley Inn, They have expanded their menu and there were many items to choose from. The appetizers were great and so was the meal. We've been going there for years and have never been disappointed.

We dined in the outdoor tent. We were attended to as soon as we sat down. Service was friendly, continuous, efficient and effective. The food was prepared well and was well plated. The staff worked well as individuals but also cooperated in support of each other. Wonderful value!

The waiter in the bar was terrible. We actually considered moving to another room in the restaurant in hopes of getting better service.

His idea of a proper greeting was “You ready?” His was absent for long stretches of time. My friend had to chase him down to place our order. And he took the wine menu away before we had a chance to look at the bottle list.

He def cost the Inn some money that night.

Glad YI has kept the tent, even though 100% capacity indoor dining now allowed. So nice to be able to eat outside by the river.

Finally caught Wednesday burger and beer.night. I tried the chicken burger with papaya slaw. Interesting, but the spicing wasn't what I had in mind. The short rib burger tried by another in our party was yummy and a lot of food. The spicy fries were actually normal fries served with sautéed hot peppers. They reminded me of Lomo Saltado... hmm a new idea for their chef.

Front of the house people can't be nicer and more welcoming upon arrival. At the table, though, it appears the Yardley Inn is apparently suffering from the same fate as a lot of restaurants right now; shortage of help. That said, service was good, as was out table, which featured a view of the Delaware River.
It was my first time here and it is much larger than it looks from the outside (and there's outdoor dining under cover).
Food: I ordered oysters of the day (Blackberry Point, Va.) and they tasted fine. Out entrees (3) were the salmon and a special of the night, Soft Shelled Crabs. The entrees were outstanding and cooked perfectly. Cocktails and desserts were equally outstanding.

This is truly dining at its best! From the second you walk in until the moment you leave the Yardley Inn delivers an upscale experience. The service, food and ambiance are all top rate. We both enjoyed the Seafood Risotto as it was perfectly seasoned. They did recognize our anniversary with a special menu and a glass of champagne.

This was the first time out to dinner when a restaurant has had so many diners since covid. It felt so good to be among other people. We were able to look out on the river. Waitress did not rush us, and she was very friendly, and continued to check on us as to be sure everything was to our liking. The only thing I missed was the piano in the bar. So many times in the past after dinner, we would go to the bar and listen to Barbara Trent play and sing. I will return soon.

Great food and wonderful service. Had some severe thunderstorms roll through so we could not sit outside but we did sit in the large tent. Was on the loud side since there is nothing on there to absorb any sound and all it does is bounce around. Overall great meal and the server was very attentive, cordial and a good sense of humor. We will be back soon

I sit alone and felt comfortable with the atmosphere. Prices were moderate for the size of the meal but it tastes great! It is in a corner and during rush hour, you will hear traffic but nothing crazy. I will be visiting more often!

We both got salmon. It was cooked perfectly. My girlfriend says it was the best salmon she ever had. The service was great, but the busboy was particularly notable. He was there to clear plates, he brought us water and drinks, he was very polite, yet he wasn't intrusive.

We very much enjoyed our Anniversary dinner at the Yardley Inn. We ate outside at a table with an umbrella. We ordered the brussel sprouts appetizer to share which was delicious and a very generous portion. I ordered the filet which was a little over cooked but still tender. I didn't like the side choices on the menu and the waiter said that I could have any sides on the menu. This was very unusual and appreciated. We were too full for dessert but the waiter brought us an order of lemon sorbet with a calender to celebrate our day. Overall it was a delightful meal. I would highly recommend and we will be going back.

Just wasn’t up to their normal high standards. Service seemed slow; food just okay tasting; fires stone cold; could not eat. Was hoping for more; especially with not getting out as often as we normally do with this Covid environment. Good would have been great, would have been better off staying home.

This was our first time at the Yardley Inn for dinner. I had requested a window seat and had made the reservation well in advance. We were seated against the wall and as far away from the window as you could get. The service was very slow. The waitress was running around like crazy but seems they needed more help. The food was very delicious and well presented. We will try again and hopefully will have a better impression.
