Thank you very much for the feedback. The drink pricing is the same at the bar and the dining room, however, we do offer special happy hour at the bar only every night until 6 pm. I am sorry for the damper to your evening, we do our very best to inform our guests of all the promotions we offer and we go out of our way to print the times and deals on all of our menus and websites to prevent this type of confusion. If you ever have any questions our offices open daily at 12 pm.

I ordered the rib steak . The menu reads "upgraded USDA CHOICE (not PRIME !) for $50 something . I specified SEARED and RARE in the middle ,told the waitress a little more done than Pittsburg .Received a brown piece of meat that tasted like it was cooked in a microwave !!! Did not complain nor send it back because the other 5 in my party who werte Vegans were happy with their meals . THIS PLACE should not offer steak unless they get an oven that can make a steak properly and sear it first ..

Yabba Island Grill
Responded on July 7, 2021

I am sad to see that you did not like your steak but also did not give us a chance to fix it. A 2 star review when 5 people were happy and 1 person didn't even feel their issue was worth mentioning seems a bit harsh. We strive to make sure all of our guests are thoroughly satisfied with their experiences while they are at Yabba but we cannot fix what we are not told is wrong. Next time, if you are unhappy please speak up, it is our honor and duty to make sure you are.

I was happy to see this restaurant catering to vegetarian/vegan diners.

I had delicious guacamole & chips, veggie egg rolls and a kale Caesar salad.

A frozen mango margarita and we ate at the bar so we got 20% off our food bill.

Great bartender and service I enjoyed the vibe and will visit again when I’m in Naples.

The food was frozen - the coconut shrimp didn't even taste like coconut. My husband paid extra to have his filet topped with shrimp and crab- 16.00 extra it was an overcooked sauce - not fresh, won't recommend or go back.

I can assure you, nothing in our kitchen is frozen and the Chef and his team make everything from scratch. We have prided ourselves on using only the best best and freshest ingredients available to us in order to provide a product that is top of the line. Over the last 20 years, we have been one of Naples best restaurants because of this dedication to excellence.
