YOT was a beautiful setting to have a Sunday Brunch. Sitting outside on the patio was perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the bottomless Bloody Mary's, omelets and salads.
The DJ was awesome! Everyone around us was relaxed and happy, and the servers were extremely attentive. Can't wait to go back!

Great outdoor date night in a very cool atmosphere with great views of the yachts at LMC. Can’t wait until they open the docks for arrival by boat.

Such a shame.
Place is absolutely beautiful and I would love to go back.
$38.00 steak, but it was a very low quality meat, I couldn't eat it.
Dessert was gross and we just left it there.
Fish dip was great.
Blue Cheese Salad was great.

We had a lovely table on the patio and took the servers advice on ordering. The brussel sprouts were oustanding! I would go back just for that item. The weather was beautiful and the patio was a perfect setting for the afternoon. I cannot wait to return on a weekend.

The only "issue" we experienced was that the drink my husband ordered was significantly higher than it is in other restaurants.. we should have asked but it may be worth having the staff provide pricing if someone orders a premium brand.

I’m a loyal fan, this was the first restaurant I have been to since the lock down. Have to say tables weren’t 6 feet apart and they were letting anyone walk into the restaurant through the front door or dock side without masks. Very sad that the level of quality for safety wasn’t 100%. Will be a very long time before I go back.

A hidden gem with a wonderful outdoor ambience. The energy is relaxing and fun. Our server Brooke was pleasant, friendly and attentive.

Overall, a lovely evening. And, our birthday honoree so appreciated her gift card for a free appetizer. A nice touch!

I will be back again and again.

I was looking for a place on the water to bring friend who were visiting. Although I’ve lived here for 24 years, this was an excellent find! The view was great and relaxing, food was delish and our server - Brooke was the best I’ve experienced in quite some time at a casual dining location. We look forward to going back.

Location is nice & secluded, but the problem is the quality of service. after being seated, waited 20 mins for a waiter to come and w/o a menu. promised to bring two glasses of water and never came. finally when we were able to order, it took 30 mins for the food to arrive and all (appetizers & entrees) came together so we have to eat our main entrees cold as we rush thru the appetizers.

then we needed some plates removed, but it was more important to the waiter to clean a table besides us, although the place was empty. never in our live we left $0 for a tip..

it is a pity, we came as it was recommended in. magazine, but if the owners do not take time to fix the service, it will fail miserably.

We have been to YOT to other times and we had a very lovely time. This night they were out of a lot of food and out of cranberry for our vodka drinks and some of the food came out wrong .it just was not a good night for them. Our server being his third day was very gracious and apologize for everything . We felt bad for him.

The quality of food did not compare to our experience at the jetway café, which has the same owner. So our expectations were not met.

This restaurant was suggested to me by a local. It drive in seems unusual because it is in a working boatyard and neighborhood. Do not be put off by this! Fantastic location next to beautiful yachts, nice ambiance and fantastic food for every taste. I cannot wait to go back. Newly j chalked bar floating on the dock is a plus. Great place for lunch which I had. Go for it.

Fun place to meet friends for happy hour. Clean and casual atmosphere on the water. Nice view of the yachts. Glad they allow corkage for the oenophiles. Food was good on the menu. There were plenty of appetizers, salads and sandwiches to choose from. Just wish there were a few more "dinner" choices.

We booked an outdoor table through Open Table, however when we got there I was told I booked it “too late” to get outdoor seating (I booked it 3 days in advance). That was disappointing. It was also a cool night and I was told there was no heater on the patio, so I felt a little better, but later learned that was not true. The indoor area was pretty but extremely noisy. We had to shout to have a conversation. We were told that is the usual noise level. We were seated at a table near the bar, not sure if the back room would have been better. We had the calamari app, it was delicious, though the romanesco sauce was bland. My guests had the tacos, definitely recommend the Mahi over the shrimp, the former being very good. I had the grilled cheese and tomato bisque as it was a cool night and it was delicious. The service was good and the prices reasonable. The noise and not accommodating my outdoor requests were the only negatives. Will try again.
