We absolutely loved our experience! We enjoyed the early dinner menu with lots of great choices and the food was wonderful! The crab, shrimp and corn chowder was excellent and I had the stuffed grouper……both wonderful choices. My husband had a great salad and the sweet and spicy beef, He loved both. Our friends had the chowder and coconut shrimp which they both loved. We will go back …..one of the best on Fifth Ave, in Naples!

The applewood pork chops were to die for. The best I’ve had in years. Service by Amanda was very welcoming, efficient, and friendly. She makes you feel at ease. Live music was at the right level so you could talk without raising the voice. Singer was very good and friendly. This is now my favorite restaurant in 5th St.

We are residence and have been coming to Yabba's for years but Sat night wasn't a good experience as we brought guests and we were put at a table for six back by the kitchen!!!! VERY DISAPPOINTING.

I had made reservations for table of six front room and when we all Arrived (EARLY) there were no tables in front room and was told "WE DO NOT TAKE RESERVATIONS!! FIRST TIME I WAS TOLD THAT AS I ALWAYS MAKE RESERVATIONS IF AT LEAST FOUR OR MORE.

Yabba Island Grill
Responded a day ago

You were not told "we do not take reservations", what I said was "we do not reserve specific tables." At the time of your reservations the option for a party of your size in the area by the front was already taken. I offered to make you first on the list when a table became available but you instead choose to take the open table in the main dining area that was ready immediately. If you really wanted a table in the front room we could have waited for it to open up for you.

We had an excellent meal last night at Yabba. We were there for early bird dining…two courses for $29.00. We started with a drink at the bar. Jackie was our server there. She was so friendly and acted like she really enjoyed her job.
We then proceeded to dinner and sat in the front room with our table next to the door overlooking Fifth Avenue. Katie was our server and she did an excellent job. My husband had the stuffed grouper and said it was delicious. Our friends had the salmon and I had filet medallions topped with seafood stuffing and it also had a delicious sauce. My entree also included mashed potatoes and vegetables. We all agreed it was a wonderful ambiance and delicious food. We look forward to going back.

We enjoyed New Years dinner at Yabba Island Grill. Our waiter was friendly and we enjoyed his menu recommendations. We started with the seafood tower which did not disappoint and followed with a wedge which easily fed two of us. For our mains we had the Sea Bass and the Pork Shank. Both were tasty and portion sizes were generous.

The only down side was when they needed us to leave the table for the next group at 10:30, there wasn’t a decent bar table option. We had hoped to stay to enjoy the live NYE music but had to go down to Bar Trulia to ring in the New Year.
