The Damn Yankee is a firm favourite for its good tasting food that beats the burger chain restaurants hands down. It has been going since 1972!! The meat is locally sourced and the burgers taste of beef. The choice of toppings is good and the warm chocolate fudge cake and ice cream is a meal in itself. The place is... More

If you like the american diner experience you will like this place! The burgers are so good! The staff were really friendly and if you are planning on a cinema trip you can either choose 25% off your food bill or 25% off your cinema ticket!

Used to come here regularly but it became hit and miss after being great so stopped coming. Fancied a proper burger so ordered through Deliveroo. Delivery service great - very quick. Chips were lovely, made from proper potatoes and crispy, but all 3 burgers we ordered were sat in a pool of grease. The bottom of the bread bun was... More

My grandad helped supply this place when it first set up & ever since, the family has come every year to celebrate birthday occasions. We love it!! Real fun American food! Tonight we came again & the waitresses Nikki, Erin & Rebekah were amazing! They were attentive, the place was calm, under control & very pleasant! NOTHING should be changed... More

My husband and son go there every week because of the great food and the bonus of having 20% off the food with Odeon Cinema tickets and with the bill from the restaurant you get 25% off cinema tickets. Because we are foodies and we love going to the movie theater every week it's a great exchange and collaboration between... More

Called here between Christmas and new year as everywhere else was full. We stood at the host stand with another couple for atleast 10 minutes with no-one seating us (talking to chefs at other end of restaurant) then sat down by a ignorant team member. Food wasn't brilliant, very greasy and not impressed. Called hear a few years ago and... More

I rang up to book a table for Christmas Eve for a birthday celebration. Was told they don't take bookings Saturday's nights - fair enough I thought. So we then turned up New Year's Eve expecting to be same as told they didn't take bookings - was told fully booked, it was about 3pm. One very disappointed little boy on... More

We needed to find somewhere for lunch on an unexpected day out in Harrogate (Coach mystery tour!) and without checking on our mobiles if there was a decent burger bar, we'd probably have ended up in McD's! But we saw DY and decided to give it a try. The chili starter was a bit hot for my wimpish taste but... More

Have visited the DY over many decades since the early 80's, but somehow they have lost something along the way. Burger was good,but chips looked and tasted like they'd been cooked prior and warmed up. Quite a pathetic looking plate with the minutest amount of cokeslaw. Pudding obviously warmed in the microwave making it soggy. Worst part of the meal,... More
