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.

This is not for vegetarian, poultry nor red-meat lovers. (They do have a couple of each and enough basic vegetarian dishes satisfy those who are not seafood lovers.) For those who delight in fresh seafoods, this is the place.

Yankee Pier Lafayette has had to survive the tribulations of turgid ownership, But it's on its way back, perhaps. The half price wine nights happen much more often than they used to. Since it has a well-stocked wine cellar, that can make an average meal...More

Craved our usual lobster roll, but because of the rains, Yankee Pier was out of lobster! We enjoyed their delicious lobster bisque bowls and Salmon sandwiches instead. Great choice!!! Wonderful and hard-working wait staff served us well. Lovely Sunday luncheon!
