    First time dining at YOT. What a fabulous experience! We truly enjoyed the parmesan wings, shrimp Caesar salad and fabulous cocktails! Michelle, our server, was absolutely fabulous! She knew exactly when to check on us and was extremely friendly, professional and warm. We had a great evening out and have already planned our return, later this month, for brunch with friends!!

    The environment is quite good for a casual dining experience with outdoor and patio seating surrounded by multi-million dollar super yachts. The food is solid, but on this last night we dined there, service was kind of a mess. While the waitress was super sweet, the team missed the ball in many aspects leaving us hailing someone for service numerous time, left unopened bottles on the table without an opener, delivered out plates without silverware etc etc.

    Restaurant was at least 1/2 empty, plenty of servers, but ours never seemed to be there when we needed her. And rarely a smile on her face. She apparently didn’t want to work that day. Food was good. Not great. $23 for lunch salad with small piece of grilled salmon was no bargain. Thankfully an awesome nautical view.

    The noise level was completely unacceptable. In addition to the loud crowd there was live music. We could not have a normal conversation. The noise ruined our visit, and we will not be returning.

    Made a reservation for 2 and showed up on time, checking in was kind of annoying but the hostess apologized so I won’t make a big deal about it, however it set the tone for our lunch. The issue I had, I reserved for 1:15, ate and paid the bill by 1:50.a marathon lunch. We ordered drinks, came within minutes and then our server took our order, we ordered 1 appetizer and 2 sandwiches. Appetizer arrived in 5 minutes, which is awesome, but within 2 minutes our meal got there. We were tasting our drinks yet we had the appetizer and the meal in front of us, which took all the fun out of our lunch experience. Not wanting the food to get cold, left the appetizer aside, ate the sandwiches and on the last bite our waiter showed up to see if we wanted dessert, we declined and asked for the check, waiter had his hand held device, so there was no going to get the check, again, this is efficient, but killed the experience. Appetizer and meal should have been properly timed so that a lunch on a Saturday afternoon is an enjoyable experience, we felt rushed and to finish off, on such a sunny afternoon, the few umbrellas they had needed to be relocated often, a large party was about to sit next to us, waiter was waiting for us to leave so they could take our umbrellas and reposition them to the large party, I guess their check was more attractive than ours $$$. Food was exquisite, service was terrible and killed the experience.

    Took a long time to get our food and drinks. My sisters short rib was cold and we had to send back. I was finished eating before she got hers back. They did take off the entree from the check and gave her a free dessert.

    Seems like off season the menu quality decreases. IE. 1/2 roasted chicken. Now it consists of a grilled chicken leg and grilled small French cut bone in breast. So over cooked due to size had to ask for a steak knife to cut. This happened last October and was told it was due to Covid. During season it’s a delicious 1/2 roasted chicken in gravy. BTW the gravy for the chicken pieces this time as in a small cup on the side. Waiter did offer to replace but after waiting over 30 min for this an my guests entree decided to make the best out of what was served. Only 3 tables occupied at the time.

    This was my fourth time returning and as usual another great experience. The food the drinks the service and the energy still amazing as my first visit. The friend who joined me had never been and had never had some of the food being offered, she loved the crispy Brussels, chicken and waffles and was amazed with the cinnamon buns. She can’t wait to return with her friends.

    My guest and I went to YOT for brunch to celebrate his birthday. I chose YOT based on OpenTable online reviews, but was somewhat disappointed. The shrimp and grits portion was small for the price, and the shrimp were grossly overcooked. My guest had the YOmlete, which was the better choice. The YOmlete came with a tomato and avocado salad, which was horrible. THE fruits were bland and soaked in their own liquids. My guest chose the bread pudding for dessert. It was okay. The saving grace of the birthday celebration was Kristen, our server (Kristen was AWESOME!), the DJ, and the ambiance of waterfront dining. I would give YOT a second chance for lunch or dinner, but I'm good on brunch.

    We ate here again party of 4. My kale salad was ok but the chicken was extremely dry. I ordered it with a piece of grilled chicken but got it with the shredded chicken instead. I should have sent it back but didn’t! Barry ordered a Chardonnay instead, was given a red wine. Our waiter was not as attentive or alert as on our past visits with other servers. Normally we like YOT, but after this visit we may decrease our visits.
