We visited yankees for the first time, even though this place has been here for years! Previous reviews have stated about staff being misserable, but we did not experience this at all. The staff were all very friendly, smiling and attentive. The food was served promtly and everyone enjoyed what they had. No complaints. The only downside to the place... More

Like so many people I have been coming here for many years. The tables, chairs and decoration have remained unchanged as has the layout of the place, but it's this that's brings me back time after time. It's like putting on a favourite jumper! The menu has been upgraded and offers a wider range I'd choices. We had the sharing... More

I have been to Yankees several times over the years (the pictures have changed a bit since the 70's) but it's still a favourite for burgers My my daughter is at Sheffield University we still go there. Can't beat it really

I visited Yankees the year it opened and have been going there on and off for 35 years. I now have a family and took them there last weekend. I have to say it was a disappointing trip. The burgers were very well done and quite chewy and the kids burger was the same burger Patti as the adults one,... More

Think things have improved recently. Our favourite cheeseburgers now feature a much better helping of cheesiness! Chip portion has also improved in size! The restaurant still features familiar decor and helpful staff. Far happier with the food this visit! Well done,Yankees!

We visited whilst waiting to pick up our child who is at uni in Sheffield. My partner is originally from Sheffield and was very excited to go back for a) the food and b) the train that runs around the room (it's a bloke thing I think). I liked the food, particularly impressed with the relishes on offer with a... More

I have visited this restaurant for over 30 years and it has a friendly relaxed atmosphere, the food is always good but please owners put your hand in your pockets and put some money back in to the business and give it a refit I visited a couple of weeks ago and it is looking very tired.

Cheese sauce to die for . Relish tray still availiable. Love the atmosphere. Updating pictures would liven the decor . But saying that it is... More
