My husband and I have not been back for a long while. We decided to go for the happy hour. After these many years the restaurant was still very good. The happy hour menu was very nice and there were many choices. I liked the...More

Saturday night family of 3 dinner after not having been here for 5 years. The past memory was so-so, good but not "must-come-back-soon." However we were all pleasantly surprised by the very tasty dinner tonight, including savory mussels appetizer in tomato and sausage sauce. Entrees...More

It had been a while since eating here so we thought it was worth another try. We are cured and don't need to return. Most glasses of wine are more than $10, and for less than stellar choices. The oyster list has a nice selection...More

This was a repeat visit and as before, we were not disappointed. Wife loved the oysters and, having had a larger mid-day meals and not real hungry, the beer battered shrimp and chips filled the bill nicely. Good wine selection. And a free parking lot...More

Suggest reservations at this busy restaurant. Service staff is very capable and host & hostess circulate to get feed-back. Lots of pride in customer service. Fish dishes vary and are excellent. Sitting on patio outside during summer months is delightful.

I love seafood. I'm also super fussy about it. This place delivers. I'd eat their oysters every day if I could, so fresh and delicious. I don't say that about many places where you can't actually watch the fishing/oyster boats coming in. And the service...More

I've been going to Yankee Pier for a few months to take advantage of happy hour. Several good things but I always order raw oysters and a sparkling wine. Really refreshing in the spring and summer.

Yankee Pier is a favorite restaurant in Lafayette. Your meal starts with wonderful sour dough French bread. The fish entrees are fresh and delicious. I love their clam chowder and shrimp Louie. For desserts it's a tie between the lemon tart and butterscotch pudding. Great...More
