What makes Yellow Dog so wonderful (besides the location) is the staff. From front of house, to servers and the fabulous food from the kitchen crew, every part of the Yellow Dog experience is well worth a visit.

We have been dining at the Yellow Dog for 16 years. We order different menu items and have never been disappointed. The food is amazing and the river view is the best in the area by far. The Yellow Dog is always our first choice for dining out.

A very pleasing Thanksgiving dinner. Our server James was extremely attentive and competent. I loved that a "combo plate" of traditional dishes was offered--both turkey and ham--along with other goodies. Patio tables were covered with starched white cloths and linen napkins. Prices very reasonable. A perfect view. What more could one ask for?

James was our server and he was well groomed, pleasant and skilled. YD has one of the nicest waterfront dining views in Melbourne and we looked forward to our visit. The prices were pretty steep for Turkey and rather inexpensive sides but such are the times. Save this for special occasions.

This was my first time here, and my experience was exceptional! From the moment I was seated to the beautiful walk in back ; out on their very own pier, I was treated with 5 star service. I’m a caregiver for two 84 year olds, and haven’t had much time to treat myself. This will now become one of my regular places to do that❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ Kim Newland from Sebastian

As usual the YD did not disappoint. Service was top-notch, our server was attentive and knowledgeable about both the menu and the YD's history. The "Howl at the Moon" dinner was excellent. All items arrived on time, at the proper temperature and tasted sublime. Even though the tables filled up quickly, we were still able to converse at normal levels. It was a relaxing, fantastic meal--we will be back again.
