Was looking for a special place on the water for a much-needed couple tonight ..called ahead made reservation for a Tuesday night.@6
The valet came out with his umbrella and since it's the rainy season this was a perk! (Nice touch )he was very personable.. upon entering the restaurant we were warmly greeted by the manager and escorted to a table with a beautiful view and were happy to see a rainbow.! Our server Candice was very pleasant and efficient.. we had escargot in puff pastry, potato cake with smoked salmon caviar for appetizers, both very good ,love the touch of the little yellow dog sitting atop appetizers and desserts. main meal.. husband had seared tuna on lo mein a little sweet but he ate it all, I had shrimp and grits which is an appetizer but it was enough of a portion for a small dinner very good. for dessert we had dog bone shaped brownies with ice cream and whipped cream very tasty and shared a small coconut cream pie which was very good, mild and fluffy . Highly recommend this restaurant .wine list decent . French poodle Martini very good also had one espresso followed by two cordials.. there are a lot of well-thought-out nice little Touches at this restaurant keep it up . Dinner for two without a tip $155.

One of the best florida restaurants I have seen, and i am a 50 year resident! The Service was outstanding! Tiffany was the best, guiding us through the crab chowder, salmon , mahi, caprisi salad, chips and hot blue cheese, bread pudding and brownies! Are you salivating yet? It was a Florida experience to beat none! Views and ambience perfect! Then a walk ont the dock was the piece de resistance!! Oh and free valet to boot!! Enjoy!!

I stopped with a group while on business travel. The night we were there it was storming and we sat in the lower level with the doors open; it was beautiful...the view was amazing. The service was truly exceptional. I had the onion crusted chicken; it was a very large portion and very, very good. For sides, I had the cabbage and potato cakes...both were good, but next time I would get a double order of the cabbage. Everyone I was with loved their food and all had really large portions. I will definitely be back when in the area again.

Thank you for your kind words. We are delighted you have now discovered Yellow Dog Cafe and we hope to see you back again soon! You are correct, when we have stormy weather on the lagoon, the views from our covered porches are exciting!

Great location. Outstanding service. Excellent food. All make for a wonderful lunch on this day. The view of the water is spectacular. A great menu with lots of choices. The crab bisque was one of the best I have had and the meatloaf was excellent. Save room for dessert because they have some fantastic choices.

We live almost an hour away from this place so we can't get here as much as we would like. Anytime we have a reason to stop and the time of day is right (dinner), we do it. The atmosphere is very unique and you don't find it at most restauarants. It's very quant and maybe eclectic is another way to put it. That is meant in a good way. The menu is small but the food is top quality, fresh and cooked to perfection. The only negative I can share is that we ordered the lamb chops last time and they gave us three tiny little chops that were less than an inch thick. Pretty small portion for the price. Other than that, highly recommend it.
