Our entire experience was amazing... Food, service etc. me and my girlfriends favorite part was the fact our waitress had no mask. It was awesome being able to see someone smile and realizing that is One thing we miss about going out to eat. If restaurants would just take off the stupid mask it would make going out to eat that much more pleasant instead of looking like I’m walking into a sick house that serves food.

One of the best meals we have ever had. The escargot was fantastic. We both had mahi mahi each done a different way. Onion encrusted with caramel citrus and coconut encrusted. Both were great! Can't wait to go back

Booking the reservation was easy using the online services. The waiter was fantastic, along with our view of the river. The food never disappoints. We celebrated my Mom’s 70th birthday. All of our meals and drinks were amazing. I always recommend this place for the outstanding food and service.

Nothing needs improvement at this quaint restaurant overlooking the Indian River. Every staff member is adequately protecting themselves and the customers by wearing masks during this COVID pandemic. The staff is very gracious and friendly. Our waitress, Michelle, did an excellent job of taking care of our party of four. One of our guests had a food allergy problem, and she brought out a separate bread basket for him, and also explained which menu items he should not order. Three of us had sandwiches, which were elegantly presented and huge. I had the baked cod with havarti cheese sauce served over wild rice. A nice presentation, the food was hot and tasted great. Michelle came out with a display of dessert offerings, and we all had something different. Of course, my bread pudding of the best of all of them. Even though we just went for lunch, we know that you get the same service quality of food for dinner.

Great location along the river. The staff, cooks were all wearing masks. Social distancing with every other table marked as "reserve" Started with cocktails, yummy. The filet and shrimp florentine were outstanding. Ended with an espresso martini & creme brule.

Being from out of town, family recommended the Yellow Dog Cafe. From the road you could easily pass by without much of a notice, this would be a huge shame. Once inside the ambiance is welcoming, charming, but gives you more of an upscale feel for a dining experience. The wait staff was top notch, and while the menu prices may lead some to shy away, their dog days of summer special list was a fantastic value for a 4 course meal. My wife and I don’t get out often for a date night but I sure am glad we made the Yellow dog our choice! We look forward to another meal on our next visit to the area! Top notch experience from the Top dog in town!

The food's presentation and flavor are exquisite! You offer a wide variety of choices. The location is divine and peaceful which brings another her element of the experience to a higher level. I have been to The Yellow Dog, twice both times eating outside. Each experience with a different server, and I feel that your servers could benefit ( as well as your restaurant) from additional training. To enhance the entire experience.

Fortunately, we made a reservation for dinner and had a panoramic view of the Indian River at our window side table. Danny, our stellar waiter, was personable, professional, attentive, and catered to our every whim. Sampling the wine convinced us to order a bottle, and the Cabernet was heartily enjoyed with our meal. The proprietor stopped at our table welcoming us.; such a perfect evening! .

This was our first visit to Yellow Dog Cafe. It was an delicious dinner, beautifully presented, with outstanding service. The ambience (riverfront on an covered patio) was gorgeous. Our server, Madeline, was a true professional (anticipating our needs) and a pleasure. It was a perfect dinner all around. We will most definitely make Yellow Dog a regular spot.

Watermelon salad was the highlight and absolutely over the top. The wife had the filet, but she likes it medium well (what a way to destroy a great steak) the cook did an awesome job of giving her exactly what she wanted with a superb flavor. The only thing that was not fantastic was the lobster and that is more of a personal thing. The scallops were amazing, cooked perfect and full of flavor. However, the rice was cold, gooey and stuck to the roof of my mouth and teeth. They broiled the lobster which detracts from the delicate lobster flavor. Next time I will know to ask for it boiled or steamed (preferred). Yes, there will be a next time and would whole heartedly recommend Yellow Dog to anyone and everybody as the best restaurant we have been to since we have moved to central Florida.

food was great, I have eaten here at last 6 times, and never has the service been so poorly done. Our waitress , forgot many items and she was not that busy that we could see. she knew the menu WHICH IS A PLUS, BUT, having to remind her a few times, to please bring the soy sauce for the appetizer, mint jelly for the rack of lamb, completely forgetting the coffee with the dessert and making us wait a very long time for out checks which where wrong and needed to be re-done, and taking her time to do that was pretty brazen on her part. I do not think she likes her job and she does not appear to like waiting on two woman. SO, I will return BUT, I will not let her be my server AGAIN. Anne ONEAL

Improve the bread pudding. Too much bread . Green beans great . Meatloaf above average. Awning was distractive to the ambience .
