My parents raved about their special dinner for two. They thought the food was absolutely delicious, the drinks were perfect and the staff was wonderfully kind.

Exceptional service on a busy Monday. It was our anniversary and our first time at The Yardley Inn. We sat outside along the river on a beautiful evening. Our waitress was extremely busy but took care of our needs on time. The crackers that came with the bread were the best I’ve ever had. As appetizers we had the barbecue wings and shrimp cocktail - both large servings and tasty, both also plated on an eye catching display. For dinner we had the cheesesteak and filet with rainbow carrots - we were both blown away by how amazing the food was. We were celebrating our anniversary and we were given a champagne toast which was quite the nice start to our amazing evening at The Yardley Inn - we can’t wait to return!

The food and the service were exceptional, and it was a nice quiet atmosphere for a great dinning experience. The view was great of the river also, extremely pleasant evening dinning.

Great food and great service! My steak was done perfectly, as was my wife's salmon. The dessert was yummy, the drinks are generous and our server was a delight. And the view of the river is terrific. What a great way to celebrate our anniversary!

Lovely atmosphere and view sitting in the dining room looking at the Delaware River and the herb garden across the street. The food and drinks were delish from appetizers to entrees to cocktails though the oatmeal chocolate chip cookies for dessert was the one exception as they were rather dry. We always love this place and while disappointed in the desert we will be back again shortly.

Outside service was good with a good distance from other noisy table. Amazing how loud some people can be when they are out to eat, even outside!
Anyway, meal was enjoyable and cooked according to our needs. Key lime pie was excellent.

A decent meal but the worst service of any restaurant I have eaten in (I'm not young any more). Salad dressing was spilled and not cleaned up and no apology was offered. The waitress was not to be found and I couldn't wait to leave. The only reason I stayed was that the other [people at the table were hungry and wanted to eat before we left.

I will not go again.

Arrived on time for our reservation and were immediately seated. Curtis, the manager seemed to have everything under control and even took our drink order. There is obviously a staffing issue as our server Rachel seemed to be running all over the place. Our appetizers came out rather quickly…/but we waited about 30 minutes for our entrees after the app plates were cleared. We were told that the patio was full and the kitchen was backed up. I know that restaurants are struggling with staffing, so we didn’t complain and the food was piping hot and delicious. Dessert was served much faster. Drinks were good. Would love to return when things settle down a bit.

We always like the Yardley Inn. This time our corner table was lovely, but the light was out over the table, and then at one point in the meal, it became hot. We had ended our meal by the time the server returned to ask us about dessert, but we decided to call an end to our evening. If it had been cooler, we might have lingered longer. Other than that we enjoyed everything.

One of the best meals & service we’ve had in a long time. We had our dinner outside & it was a beautiful evening. My husband & I had the filet & our friends had the salmon. Kudos to the chef. Looking forward to our next dinner.

Even though the temperature was in the high 90s, we were determined to eat outside due to COVID. Our server was Nancy who was not only a hoot but great at her job and wanted us to be very happy with our experience. Even our carrot-top bus boy was impressive having obviously trained very well. We'll be back!
