What a great little diner serving up great big meals!! We love the Elvis memorabilia and the 50s decor. The staff is amazing and so sweet! You must try the fruit fritters but beware of sugar overload! Don't come here if you are in a hurry everything is cooked to order but definitely worth the wait!

We LOVE this place. The burgers are awesome and they have great old fashioned shakes (ask for black and white - a chocolate shake made old fashioned way with vanilla ice cream and chocolate syrup).

Always VERY good food and service! Very few large tables so expect a wait if your group is more than four. Summer weekends often have waits even for small parties. Adorable decor. Swansboro is a must-experience little town!

Went here for lunch. Old time atmosphere. Food was good and service was good. I had an old fashion burger and it was really good. Price was average. Once your done eating you can walk around the small town and visit the little shops and relax by the waterfront. Would recommend.

We had a wonderful meal as always. We loved the new pinneapple fritters. The food is great and the people are so friendly and kind. We even got to meet Yana and her grandson who is the manager (Orange shirt). We just love this place.

We owned a vacation house on Emerald Isle for 16 years and never missed eating at Yana's on our trips to the house. We've sold that, but still hit Yana's on every trip back to the area. On this trip we at lunch there. As usual, your cup or glass is never empty, and we had plenty of food choices... More

We stopped there for breakfast after some people had recommended it. The place was a little tight but the food was delicious and the atmosphere was wonderful (tons of 50's memorabilia)

Great service, great food, great prices... Best place to eat in Swansboro... Get here early on Sundays especially... Otherwise you'll wait for 30+.

We have eaten breakfast on 2 different occasions while in the area. Both times were very good. The food was good and the prices are fairly cheap. The service was very good. Our drinks were never empty. I will go back.

Yana's was recommended to us by a local. We were told their burgers were excellent. In my opinion, they were a little on the dry side and way over-cooked. On the other hand, the onion rings and service made up for this. Wait staff top notch; onion rings fresh, hot and not greasy at all. I would probably go back... More
