                                      We were alone in the restaurant so it was very quiet. Ambience lovely. Service excellent. Food very good. But can one complain about getting too much food? The piece of Arctic char we got must have been 2-3 lbs, enormous. It could have fed a group of 6. We could only eat a small portion. It seemed gross and wasteful. Yes, a piece more appropriate in size to a reasonable portion would have been preferred (tho I guess better too much than too little). Cape May is a vacation area and so we had no way of bringing the leftovers home. The other piece of fish we ordered was normal in size. I know this is a strange complaint. And it should discourage no one from dining there.

                                      While the food was cooked nicely, it was totally bland. No seasoning, no sauce, nothing. I’m not sure if that is the theme of the restaurant?

                                      In Cape May for anniversary weekend and decided to try the lobster brunch. Megan was our server and she was really sweet and accommodating. Restaurant was modern and had a great jazz soundtrack. The majority of the choices on the menu are all lobster dishes. I had the lobster scramble which was excellent, had plenty of lobster and was served with an ample side of tater tots. The tater tots were tasty, but ordinary. Don’t get me wrong who doesn’t love a good tater tot, but I think a place that’s trying to have a high end lobster brunch would want to try and do a homemade hash brown or something to partner the elegance of the lobster dish. If you do not like lobster there are only 3 or 4 other items on the menu. Considering there were lines out the door for neighboring restaurants and only a few tables filled here, my only suggestion would be that they add other non-lobster dishes to the brunch menu. Otherwise it’s def worth a try!

                                      Liked the decor and vibe. Awesome to be so close to the ocean. Cool to be able to get lobster. That's original. All of your restaurants have awesome chefs! That's what keeps us coming back to all of them.

                                      Very friendly staff. Willingness to correct mistakes (misunderstanding in our order was comped). Owner came to check on our experience. Lobster brunch was delicious.

                                      We had a wonderful meal! I had a shrimp dish with roasted cauliflower- and I have to say it was the best I ever had…. Who knew cauliflower could taste like that! My husband had scallops- they were amazing- sweet and cooked perfectly. We agreed that these were the best shrimp and scallops ever! We dined here last year on our visit to CM. It is now a MUST for every visit!

                                      Each dish was so good we ended up sharing them all. For any vegans or vegetarians, the main course of cauliflower and brussle sprouts is a must. Can’t wait to come back.

                                      The food was really good and service was excellent until at the end. Perhaps we had too big of a group (9 people) so they basically didn't even wait until we were done with our dinner, without asking if we wanted dessert, and gave us the check. That was just a bit odd.

                                      Food and service were both outstanding. My wife had the flatbread sushi appetizer and I had the Asian wings--both excellent. My wife had the giant shrimp and cauliflower entrée and I had the scallop entrée --both were delicious. We split the key lime pie for dessert. This is a BYOB establishment which I really appreciate. The restaurant is not large and feels very cozy. We would highly recommend YB and we will return to this restaurant in the future.

                                      Waitress was kind and friendly. I ordered the lobster benedict. Lobster was cold, egg was way over poached and solid, and tots tasted like the fryer oil needed to be changed. The door to the business was hard to find. It isn't marked on the outside, except for the sign overhead thats only visible from the street. I probably won't be visiting again. Just wasn't worth it

                                      Our server was awesome and the food just as good. The place is small and very comfortable. Highly recommend. My wife and I really enjoyed the evening. Respectfully William & Rena Simkins

                                      The service, ambiance and food were all excellent. Not my first time here and definitely not my last. The mushroom flatbread appetizer was a huge hit with me and my 2 brothers. This YB (younger brother) knows how to bring great flavors together.

                                      This is an excellent place for lunch. We brought mother and enjoyed all the lobster ordered. Our only disappointment was that we couldn’t sample other things from the menu since we were there on a Saturday at which time they only serve brunch. That is not a criticism just an observation by all means please go a worthy destination in Cape May

                                      The flat bread appetizer and the tuna were delicious. The dorado and the artic char were prepared just right. This is a place that is worth going back to again and again.

                                      A really nice break from what’s become typical in Cape May. Unpretentious service paired with well prepared food served in generous portions. Will definitely return to YB!

                                      Appetizer was ok. The soft shell tasted stale with the tuna - fish was great good size portions. Service was great.
