We were seated in a large tent outdoors. It was extremely extremely noisy, to the point that we couldn't hear each other talking; So, basically decided to stay quiet, eat and leave. The other major issue was the cleanliness of the wine glasses. My wine glass smelled eggy and disgusting. I could not drink more than a couple of sips. I didn't ask for a clean glass of wine because I was not enjoying my time there at all, due to loud of volume of noise. I just wanted to finish my meal and leave.

The quality of food was good and our servers were great!

Our first time. After walking the Canal Trail we stopped in and were pleasantly surprised. Wonderful meal. Loved everything about this place. Sat in the Tavern Room by a window and it was perfect. Can’t wait to go back again.

Always enjoy the Yardley Inn setting. The Grieggstown Chicken Salad was interesting, but the sweet rolls that were served for the table were dried out; stale...and no butter was available.

I ordered the seared tuna - it did not have any taste at all - I covered it in soy sauce and salt to give it some taste. My kids had the pasta it was OK. My husband had the pork chop - it was burnt and fatty. The waitress was super nice. The view was spectacular. If you don't care about the actual food I would recommend - otherwise I would stay away.

Our waiter Napoleon was the absolute best! Service and food were both excellent! Location is adorable. Food came quickly despite being very busy for brunch. Espresso Martini was the best I ever had!

They have a very large outdoor tent that was spacious and allowed for good social distancing. We had soups that were exceptional- my chicken rice soup was so flavorful it was amazing. My friend had a very yummy steak and my crab cakes were good, but a little too mushy for me on the inside, and I prefer large pieces of crab rather than shredded crab with filling. The side of marinated beets with grapefruit was exceptionally good. We both enjoyed chocolate flourless cakes that were so rich and yummy. They allowed us to bring in our own bottle of wine as it was one they didn't offer, for a moderate corkage fee. Look forward to going back again, as the menu had many more dishes we wanted to try.

Had a wonderful late lunch on a Saturday afternoon! The social distancing is still being observed which is great when dining with older folks who are still awaiting a vaccine. The food is always perfectly prepared. I absolutely love the Devils on Horseback as an appetizer. I have Celiac Disease and every dish I have ever ordered has been good as I have never been "glutened" .

It was windy, and you can't help that, but even in the wind a musky watery smell was very apparent on the patio. In addition a loud party was lingering, madkless and talking over us as we tried to enjoy out appetizers. Not a single staff member said anything to them. Disappointed .

Through the pandemic, YI has provided a reliably safe dining environment, especially in the tent. The food is consistently good and the "tiers of taste" appetizer presentation is fun. Some new menu items would be welcome.

The stuffed dates were creamy and delicious. The Griggs town chicken salad was huge and we loved it. The pork shanks were so tender. They could have used a tad more seasoning. The mustard sauce that they use is great but we still noticed that they were a little flat underneath.

We loved the ambiance as well.

We sat in the tent and it was a windy and cold evening. The heaters didn’t provide enough heat and we were freezing, even though we dressed warmly. It was a special milestone birthday but we were so uncomfortable we didn’t even stay for dessert. We liked our meals although I’ve had better crab cakes at Yardley Inn in the past.

I was happy they were able to fit us in. We booked on the app and the table was ready by the time we got there. We sat outside and were warm (I had my fleece on since my back was to an opening). We felt safe. The service was fantastic. Everyone was very friendly and attentive. We have been here before and will dove back again.

We had a wonderful meal. We arrived before 5 and it was nice and quiet:).
Our server was nice but seemed distracted at times. Overall good experience.
We all had either filet mignon or flat iron steak and the food was good.

We left around 7:30 and by then it was quite loud at the Inn.
