We ate at the Yellow Dog Cafe twice a month for years, but the RV lifestyle and change of residence has kept us away except for an occasional visit. One of our daughters was married here, on the lower deck, in 2008. That said, the place is still TERRIFIC! Our friends, Larry and Dina Brister, are here to enjoy it... More

When in the area for our annual golf trip a visit to the Yellow Dog Cafe is a must. This wonderful restaurant should be on the list of diners who enjoy outstanding and creative food, a warm and inviting atmosphere and excellent service.

To start, we knew nothing of this restaurant when we arrived. Asked for an outside table on a beautiful night and got on right on the deck. The service was great and the food was excellent! No one ordered any starters, just some cocktails and beer, only down side, no draft beer. We ordered two Salmon specials, the Yellowfin tuna... More

Our bill was $80.00 for 2 dinners. Husband had the 8 ounce Filet Mignon served over mashed potatoes and one broccoli spear. The filet was overcooked on the tough side. The filet at Texas Roadhouse is so much more tender for 1/2 the cost. Nothing special about the mashed potatoes and broccoli. I had the 2 crab cakes served over... More

Starters we had corn fritters they were great and different served with a honey/red pepper dip very good stuff. My Cesar Salad was great as well not over dressed like most are. My wife's spring raspberry salad was good as well. She had pecan mahi and I had filet we both enjoyed them. Dessert I got the bone, very yum... More

The food is good but overrated for the price. Unless you use caller parking, you have to park across a divided highway, it rather a busy road. Better places to eat in Palm Bay at that price.

We were staying with friends in the Melbourne area and they took us here and frankly we were surprised - this is big city quality food and, shockingly, service, from valet to a waiter who could charm the socks off of anyone. Very nice venue - we ate inside but the large glass windows gave us a full moon. The... More

The Yellow Dog Cafe is absolutely one of the better restaurants in the Melbourne, Florida area, make no mistake about it. The location right on the Indian River is nice with great water views. The choice of seating options is an added bonus...inside, outside, upstairs, downstairs, etc. Very nice atmosphere! The menu has a wide variety of selections, something for... More

After reading the reviews, we went to Yellow Dog Cafe for the first time and enjoyed a late lunch on a beautiful, sunny Saturday afternoon. We were greeted at the front door by a friendly and professional young man who provided complementary valet parking. We requested a table on the covered patio overlooking the Indian River Lagoon. One of us... More

This was my second visit to this restaurant. On the whole I like the ambiance and setting better than the food. My guest seemed to enjoy her salmon more than I liked the duck. Perhaps mine was just not appropriate for the weather. It was substantial fare if you are hungry, but it just didn't wow me. It had a... More
