It was busy on this Friday mid October but we still got a table for 3 without having reservation. The owner, David told us he is now switching to the fall schedule of Thursday to Sunday opening. As always the onion soup was superb. The swordfish special with mango salsa was perfect equally so the baked haddock with garlic mashed... More

Apps of escargot and also fried calamari, followed by haddock with almonds and seafood fra diavoli. Almosphere pleasant but a bit noisy; service friendly and reasonably attentive, and food good but not great. Save a little money because you can bring your own wine.

Tried Yellowfin's for the first time with friends. It's a very popular place so when we made reservations, the best time we could get was 8:30, a little later than we would have liked, but oh well. It's BYOB as Orchard Park is a dry town. The restaurant is one big room with a huge aquarium as a centerpiece. The... More

My husband and I visited Yellowfin's for dinner in August. We previously ate here 6 years ago. We were not disappointed to have returned! The meal and atmosphere was as great as it was 6 years ago.

White tablecloths and a huge salt water aquarium settles you into a Relaxed atmosphere and warm excellent service. Oh yes, the food is delicious too. Not high falootin cookin, just well prepared dishes, especially fish. Save room for home made desserts too. then, just take a stroll around Ocean Park and enjoy the rest of the evening.

We love Yellowfin's so much we held our wedding reception here. Great location on the beach block with a beautiful decor. The service is fantastic and the food tremendous. It's located on Ocean Park so you have to bring your own wine, which is a plus! The chef is fantastic, daily specials and their regular menu are sure to delight... More

We had a very nice dinner here on a busy August night. I had the lobster risotto, which was rich and filling. My daughter really enjoyed the coriander crusted tuna and mashed potatoes, and her friend loved the cedar plank salmon. I appreciated that it was BYOB, because I got the wine I really like at a great price. Service... More

This is always a "must" place to eat when we are in the area. Food is always excellent. I know some people of experienced spotty service, but we never have. Love that the area is "dry" and you can bring your own alcohol. That helps keep the cost resonable.
