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

It was a last minute decision to visit but they still managed to seat us. The service from the staff was very good. The food was as to be expected, not fine dining but very tasty food. We enjoyed our visit

This used to be one of the best places in town, but I am absolutely disgusted with the food we received lately. Ordered the ribs, I DO NOT expect to be eating what tastes like bought in, vacuum packed ribs that were honestly no different to what I buy in Asda. Really, really horrible. We also had burgers, which for... More

I've been going to the Damn Yankee since I was a kid so nearly 40 years - it never disappoints. I don't live in Harrogate any more, I don't even live close and yes there is an element of nostalgia when I visit but I've not found a place like it in any other location. Reading the reviews, there seems... More

We visited The Dawn Yankee on the 22nd Oct. 5 of us ate there and were all extremely happy after we had eaten! We all ordered different meals and did a bit of mix and matching when they arrived I ordered the chicken / ribs combo and had to fight off the others trying to steal my ribs They literally... More

Been coming here since it first opened, how long ago is that ? Nearly always have the Smokey Joe, love it, prices are reasonable. Best nachos in town, only one criticism, bring back the spicy beef, everybody does pulled pork !!!

I've never written a review before, good or bad, but I've got to say that this is the worst so called meal I've ever had! My wife was in tears , she was treating me for my birthday and is heartbroken that it was a pile of crap that I would not feed a hamster on . The beer was... More
