We LOVE this place. The burgers are awesome and they have great old fashioned shakes (ask for black and white - a chocolate shake made old fashioned way with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup).

Great spot on our way to the beach. Cool atmosphere with Elvis & Marilyn stuff all over the place. Burgers are pretty big but only cooked medium or higher. Their apple fritters (get peach in the summer) are excellent, as are their milkshakes.

Yana's is a Swansboro institution. Fritters are a must! New pineapple fritters are so yummy. What's not to like about Yana's? Sam was our server AGAIN and was super! Good food with great atmosphere. We have visited Yana's many times over the past ten years without disappointment. We'll be back soon.

We ordered the strawberry fritters, which were amazingly good!! My husband ordered eggs, bacon and grits, which were just ok. I ordered pancakes and bacon, extra crispy. The pancakes were just ok too and the bacon was not crispy at all. In the future, I would go eat fritters there, but breakfast at another restaurant.

This place is fantastic! Worth the wait and worth the drive from Emerald Isle or Atlantic Beach. The peach fritters are one of the best things I've ever tasted! Yana's is so nice. It's a must try on any visit to the Crystal Coast.

Atmosphere/decor while very welcoming, was so dated...and not in a good way. Just a haphazard mix of Marilyn, Elvis and Early American plastic table covers. There was a bit of a wait for the food, cooked to order so that's good; and the staff were very attentive and friendly. My hamburger was only average (wouldn't order it again) but the... More

Thank you, 55gypsy55, for your review of Yana's 50's Restaurant. Yes, the collage of Elvis, Marilyn Monroe, The Lone Ranger, James Dean is in keeping with the theme of a 50's restaurant. The table covers, however, are not cheap "Early American" plastic. I select the material from a prominent tablecloth manufacturer who makes them according to the table size--not cheap!... More

What a great little diner serving up great big meals!! We love the Elvis memorabilia and the 50s decor. The staff is amazing and so sweet! You must try the fruit fritters but beware of sugar overload! Don't come here if you are in a hurry everything is cooked to order but definitely worth the wait!

Always VERY good food and service! Very few large tables so expect a wait if your group is more than four. Summer weekends often have waits even for small parties. Adorable decor. Swansboro is a must-experience little town!
