Yesterday's is just across the street from the Central Emporium, so parking can be tricky. However, it's also within a relatively short walk from the Park's large parking lot. The food is very good as is the service, but you will pay. This is fine dining in a casual atmosphere, so it's not really kid friendly. Reservations are highly recommended,... More

We made reservations and went to the restaurant. We had 3 kids with us. We were the only ones in the restaurant at dinner time. The front door doesn't open, you have to tug and pull on it--at first we thought they were closed! The manager, a middle aged woman came and opened the door. We were seated by the... More

Great martinis! We enjoyed the proximity to Arnolds Park. The food was good. The server was truly not enthused about her job.

The food is very good especially the fish. Most of the menu items come with a side of broccoli so if don't like that make sure you order a different side. The escargot is amazing.

Yesterdays was one of the places that I would take family and friends about ten years ago. So we were driving through Arnolds Park on Monday night of Labor Day weekend and decided to stop. We were with friends and they ordered the sea food chowder. It was terrible not really a chowder at all. Would not even pass as... More

After making it a tradition to head to Yesterday's at least once a summer for a 'date night' for many years now - it was disappointing that our food was even worse than last year. On a positive note, the service was still very good. However, for $50 (no alcohol) I'm pretty sure that we can find better food somewhere... More

Hadn't been here for years and recently went with friends. Nice to revisit and the food was wonderful! Salads were a bit small but fine; pleasant, nice atmosphere. A nice restaurant when you want something special.

We hit this place early on a Monday evening, so we were pretty much alone. My husband & I & our 5 year old son. Decor is older, nice. They have a variety of seafood/steak/chicken/ salads. Good food at about $22 per plate in the evening. Of course seafood is more. They did have outdoor seating. Key lime pie was... More

Yesterday's has great food normally, but the Teppanyaki experience is so much more fun. The chef is so awesome and has been there for many years. It's great for a small group, but is a bit pricy. Make sure to call and make a reservation in advance, it's totally worth it.
