The most memorable thing about this restaurant is the great water view. Service is also outstanding. The food was average. We had the salmon and the cod, and did not find either was above average. The asparagus and the carrots were both under-cooked. The rolls, which were only available upon request, were excellent.

We had made reservations and were seated right away. The area we sat in was rather crowded with tables. I do not know if this is normal or just done for a holiday. Appetizer of macaroni and cheese with lobster was very good but very heavy and filling. You could make a dinner out of the appetizer easily. My husbands... More

This is a very attractive, popular restaurant on the South River. It has great sunset views. It has a happy hour and 1/2 price bottles of wine on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. We were there on a Tuesday so unfortunately no specials for us. We ordered seafood entrees of scallops. They came with risotto which was tasty but the scallops... More

Beautiful place, great service and a view to die for. Took my wife to Yellowfin to celebrate her birthday. Dinner was excellent. We both opted for seafood. She had a surf and turf (Fillet and shrimp) I was content with the salmon. Both meals were amazing. The waiter kept close tabs on us, never letting glasses get empty, rolls cold,... More

Nothing is better than a restaurant on the water. So sure enough my family and I just had to try this place out. We came for happy hour and it was open seating in the bar area. The mood is relaxing and positive from the moment you sit down to the time you step out of that door, knowing you're... More

We moved away from the Chesapeake Bay area about five years ago. We miss a number of aspects of "The Land of Pleasant Living." The Yellowfin is one of the restaurants we miss. While visiting family this week, once again we had lunch here. As always, our meal was delicious, our server outstanding, and the view of the South River... More

Good drinks and beer selection. Great vibe in the bar area. The calamari and bi-partisan soup are top notch. Got to have!

$3 beers, $4 glasses of wine, and delicious appetizers! (We had the tuna bites, fish and chips, and BBQ pork). The service was excellent, and the view of the setting sun over the South River added to our enjoyment. We'll be back for sure.

My wife and I frequent Yellow Fin often. Last night was the first time we had a sit down dinner. My wife had the crab cakes. The crab cakes were the worst we have ever had in MD. These are not Maryland crab cakes! The only taste we tasted was the overly amount of filler. To let you know how... More

A wall of windows overlooking water view spans nearly the entire width of the restaurant. Food is quite good, much improved since my last visit a few years ago. Loved the warm bread and salmon dinner, although my dish arrived less than hot. Server was friendly; particularly impressed to see one holding a wine glass up to the light to... More
