First time here and the food is awesome!!! A short drive from Vero Beach takes us here to celebrate a year long belated birthday party. This wide, river front, spectacular view, dining experience was worth the trip. Steve, who was our server met us at our river view table. Bottles of Banfi Pinot Grigio and Paul Hobbs Crossbarn Chardonnay started... More

We stopped by here on a Sunday afternoon with extended family in town for a funeral over the weekend. Food was excellent, atmosphere was relaxing and service was great. Only thing keeping me from 5 stars was the inconvenient parking (yes, they have valet parking, but I never use valet parking for personal reasons) Parking is down the road and... More

We had a delicious dinner with friends. We each ordered something different and everyone was very pleased with the food. EXCELLENT! We had 2 bottles of wine also! The Chef/Owner came out and spoke to us at the end of our meal. This restaurant is not cheap, but what a fun way to have a great evening with friends. The... More

My husband and I were recently married and we were given a beautiful gift card to be used at this restaurant. From the time we walked in to the time we left Everything and I mean Everything was perfect. The table outside overlooking the water, the service was first class and the food was just outstanding.

This is a great place, off the beaten path. We had heard nice things about this restaurant and it's location (view) so we decided to try. The food was excellent as with the service. Our server was top-notch and happily catered to our requests. The hostess/manager even brought us a complimentary cheese plate for a small inconvenience we encountered when... More

We had lunch yesterday on the covered deck overlooking the Indian River.It was it's usual fabulous (crab bisque, baked brie, Florentine shrimp over pilaf). Starting with the fabulous fresh baked bread and finishing with amazing dessert choices, The Yellow Dog performed above and beyond. This is not even close to the first time I'v been. I lived nearby when it... More

This is the Central East Coast's best kept secret! It is truly gourmet. The meals and service are impeccable. You can dress casual, but you are treated to a superb dining experience. Make reservations and go early. The restaurant has a large capacity, but the parking is limited, They do have valet parking and an elevator to take those with... More

We had lunch for my wife's birthday and it was great. The service, food, and atmosphere were all spot on. It is located directly on the Indian River with a nice view of the river. They have valet parking due to the limited parking on busy A1A. I had the Cajun grouper sandwich and my spouse had the crab cakes... More

We ate at the Yellow Dog Cafe twice a month for years, but the RV lifestyle and change of residence has kept us away except for an occasional visit. One of our daughters was married here, on the lower deck, in 2008. That said, the place is still TERRIFIC! Our friends, Larry and Dina Brister, are here to enjoy it... More
