A lot more has changed, in addition to the name, but the food is still good and the streamlined staff as pleasant & helpful as always. This restaurant is only open for BREAKFAST now. Mon-Fri from 8-12 pm; Saturday from 8-1 pm and Sunday from 8-2 pm. The menu is small so if you don't see what you want listed, ask. As long as they have the ingredients on hand, they are amenable to accommodate your desires. You order at a counter, filled with homemade goodies, and pay up front. It's serve yourself coffee...other drinks are delivered to your table. You can still get most of what you got before and it is tasty!! And on the way home, be sure and buy a pastry, cake, brownie, etc. for later. This is a new concept at this location, so have patience. If you are not happy with something, don't complain - rather ask for the manager/owner & he/she will be happy to fix it. Bon appetit!

Thanks for the review! I know change is hard when we become comfortable with something, but we had no choice but to change or go away. The next few months will see adjustments as we discover what people like and what they don't. We hope to constantly rotate through different kinds of fresh baked goods. Currently (of course) we some wonderful Pumpkin Spice muffins and breads!

We stayed overnight at the Duke of York Hotel as we were in the are for a friend's son's wedding. The day for PERFECT!! The following morning after viewing a gorgeous sunrise, we met the couple's family/friends for breakfast at the Duke of York Restaurant. Delicious!! Our waiter was humorous and swift in servicing all of us (13 persons having a grand time). The food choices were great and everyone oohed and ahhed over the omelet choices. Time went too swiftly for everyone as we had other places to go and see. Would definitely go again when in the area.

Second time trying to have breakfast at Island Grill. First time our order was lost and tables all around us, who arrived after us, were served. The waiter ignored this for 40 minutes until I was made crazy by the smell of delicious pancakes next to our table. He checked and it still took another 25 minutes to eat.

Today, we sat for 20 minutes! No menu, no coffee, completely ignored. We got up and left.

There won't be a third try.

We have been here many times in the past so I made reservations for 12 people for 11:30. When we get there, we were informed that they close at noon and only serve breakfast! They use to have great seafood platters. Looks like someone bought them out.

Unfortunately for the location.....this is just very basic Diner food nothing amazing here sadly. Service is average and the view is 4th on the list of places to eat on Yorktown Beach.
