We decided to visit downtown Swansboro on our Saturday off. It was a beautiful day and we frequented the local stores in the historic downtown and this worked up an appetite in us. The owner of the outfitter store a couple of buildings down the street recommended Yana's. We decided to have lunch at this restaurant and it was above... More

We were looking for a local breakfast place when leaving Emerald Isle from the Thanksgiving weekend. Yana's was the option we chose and couldn't have been more pleased. We could tell from the short wait that this was a popular place. It was a pleasure to dine with friendly wait staff moving in a constant pace to ensure everyone was... More

It wouldn't be possible to come to the beach and not go to Yana's for breakfast! We took our 17-month old grandson for his first Yana experience and he is now a big fan. He loved the strawberry and banana fritters that he followed with eggs, sausage, grits, and a dinosaur pancake. The only thing better than the food, was... More

It's a rarity where you can find a place that has amazing food, great customer service, very personable staff, and can also take you back in time several decades ago. I'm in my 30's and I can appreciate places like this one; one's that decide to not conform to modern society with their way of business. I would highly recommend... More

Yana's is a wonderful small restaurant featuring all fresh cooked to order food. A VERY popular breakfast spot in Swansboro with very friendly wait staff.

Honestly? I was in the mood for something greasy so I came here. The greasy part was accomplished! I ordered the cheese burger with onion rings. The bun was cold, the burger was very dry and way over cooked. Onion rings were horrible and tasted so bitter, like the grease hasn't been changed in a month. To top it off... More

Etta78, Owner at Yana's Ye Olde Drugstore Restaurant, responded to this review

I'm very sorry that you had such a bad experience! However, the "old" grease that you refer to is "Canola cooking oil" which is changed every day. I know this for a fact because since I am the owner always at the restaurant at closing time; it is a supervised chore for the cooks. This is the first time I... More

I have gone to this restaurant ever since I was in diapers. Swansboro/Emerald Isle is pretty much my second home. My family is close to the workers and owners at Yana's, and you couldn't ask for better staff. It is a small restaurant, and can be overwhelming/crowded especially in the summer...but trust me, it is SO worth it. They will... More

We stopped in for a light lunch and Peach Fritters, the best anywhere. Everything we had was delicious, burgers, fries and of course Coconut Cream Pie. Try to go during the off times, it gets very busy and loud, small cute 50's theme.

Wow this place was great! First of all, this is the cutest little town ever! We ordered the famous fritters and they were so delicious! We got peach, it is seasonal so they only have it during the summer. I ordered breakfast- eggs, bacon and grits. The eggs were cooked perfectly, the bacon was crispy liked I asked for and... More
