The food is great especially breakfast. Location is quirky, dark and a bit claustrophobic but other than that there is always a line for breakfast !!

OK this isn't a fancy gourmet place. This is a family, fun, fresh cooked to order, memory. Use the lady's room and you will agree with me. First if you are with me, desert first is always a must. So start with some fresh fruit...More

Yama's is a "must visit" when at the NC Crystal Coast. Fritters are always a good start. The restaurant is busy with locals arriving very early for the treats. Friendly staff and really decent prices. We've enjoyed Yana's for over 15 years. We'll be back...More

My family always makes it a point to stop in here on our annual family vacations. If I was ever on the food network show best thing I ever ate, I would hands down say the fruit fritters at Yanas!

Only reason I went back was due to a business meeting. I suppose it must be a novelty for tourists, but is a walking heart attack. Also, is pricey for what you get.

This place is as famous as it gets in Swansboro. Authentic, old school menu. If you like hand-cut hashbrowns with your eggs and biscuits, this is the place. Great burgers and hot dogs, old style milkshakes, and did I mention the pancakes? Plan to wait...More
