Yonkers Restaurants

  • Our Favorite restaurant for family...

    This restaurant will always be a favorite of my family as we have been coming here for years. Their service, quality of food and price will keep up coming. We have had so many family gatherings here and it is where my daughter at the tender age of 6 ate her first piece of Sushi. They serve Chinese/Japanese dishes and their sushi is excellent, fresh...

  • Excellent homestyle Italian meals

    This is one of my favorite Italian restaurants. IMHO, the food is very good, fresh and made to order. I enjoy a good restaurant that makes your dish the way you want it and doesn't fuss over taking out or adding anything to the dish, they will "customize" your meal if you want. The restaurant is located on Broadway in a busy merchant neighborhood....

  • Great drinks and food too

    This is the type of place we enjoy coming to because of its wide selection of beer, drinks and food. It isn't your typical bar/restaurant as it has a nice mix of dishes. I've been to a few of their other locations including Oahu, San Diego and West Nyack, so when this particular Yard House opened up at the Westchester Ridge Hill I knew we'd visit...

  • Yummy Sunday Brunch

    The Bonefish Grille is an American Seafood chain restaurant with a location here at the Ridge Hill in Yonkers.

  • Once a good place food was just okay

    On our first visit we stumbled upon this restaurant while looking for places to eat in Yonkers on the AA IDine list. They were listed as having some good food at really good prices, so we decided to give it a try. We've been here quite a few times and the food had always been good and the service excellent. During our recent visit we notice that...

  • Winter Sunday Brunch

    Burke's was our favorite Sunday Brunch place, especially during a lazy cold winter Sunday. We'd usually wake up late and hop in the car for about a 10 minute drive and enjoy a really good selection of dishes. The dining area is quite large with really nice dark wood beams and furnishings with a nice large bar as you enter the restaurant. There are...

  • Great Diner food any time of day!!

For lunch lunch and all day items like sandwichs and hot plates,...

    The Cheesecake Factory is always a good meal. This chain restaurant does deliver well prepared food that always tastes good. Portions are always a bit on the large side but you will have leftovers.Their menu is quite extensive with many pages covering drinks, appetizers, entress and their desserts. I have my favorite selections here such as the...

  • Decent Food. Idine.

    This is a place I find myself in more now that I've moved away from the area than I ever did when I lived just down the block. It is still close to family and we come here for many of our family dinners. The fact that it is an idine is always bonus.The owners of the place are friends of Liz's parents so we always get wonderful service. The big hit...

  • Great food and lots of beer

    Since this was our first time in the area,we asked the folks are the front desk where would they recommend as a place to eat. They mentioned the usual stuff that you can find at home, but also mentioned that the Westchester Ridge Hill Mall was a few minutes away, so we hopped in the car and went there. Many food options to choose from but we have...

  • Secret Korean Restaurant

    On the outside, this place doesn't look like much. Even on the inside, the cramped quarters might not inspire confidence. But the food is inexpensive and very good. When we visited, we had the good fortune of discovering the place wasn't just a take-out place for fried fish. As we were deciding what to order, we couldn't help but notice the locals...

  • Good Diner Food

    This was my first time to this big diner on the "hill". Mont Olypus is situated on a hill overlooking central avenue. We wound up here simply because I was staarving and didn't feel like driving anymore. The diner is pretty big and we were seated at a nice booth in the center of the diner. Our waitress was very nice and took our drink orders...

  • Dirty Dog Place

    This place is a dive to say the least. I had been told that once this was a nice place with good hot dogs and a place you could take the family. Liz came here often as a child and as a teenager and had wanted to stop in. Horrified was the best way to describe it. The place looked filthy and gross. Kids were running around the place like crazy and...

    If you're hungry and on a budget, look no further than El Poblano. This taco stand may not look like much on the outside, but the inside is always packed with happy eaters.

    Only one reason to be here. And its not the service drink or music. Being your typical loud dance club this is the only one on the strip of McLean Avenue. You can find a variety of drinks and snack food available early. Drinks and music continue after into the early morning hours. All bars and clubs serve until 4am in this area. Dress well. There...
