Restaurant was jammed at noon Sunday. First day of bow season. We were impressed with the number of staff. They were definitely prepared.

Outstanding family dining! Been going to Yankee Boy for at least 30 years and it is the best it has ever been. Clean, good staff, very good food at reasonable price. Great pizza.

I had read all the reviews and decided to try just a burger. Now don't get me wrong it was ok/good, but I will never eat a burger there again. Thin frozen 1/4lb patty, and a regular store bought bun, with a "romaine" lettuce leaf...More
