great place, bad customer service, great service, cold atrocious food, pleasant girl servers, big screens, pricey drinks
A cool place to go!. This is a great after hours spot. Yankee doodle's is especially cool if your just looking for a somehting to do on Friday night. The crowd is usually mixed and plays a good variety of music. However, they do tend to be sticker's about enforcing a dress code, so if your not wearing casual dress they may give you a hard time.
fun spot to shoot pool and grab a bit. We were shopping on 3rd Street and stopped in for some lunch. I've been here before to watch games. Yankee Doodles is great if you want to watch sports. This is the first time we ate here. The food was good! I had a chicken sandwich. After lunch were shoot some pool and had a fun time. This place is more than a sports bar - food and pool also.
Big place, a little cheesy. Perhaps it the location, but I can't take this place seriously. A little too commerical for my taste. They have many screens and tons of tables downstairs, but the crowd seems to mainly consist of tourists. Food is okay - passable for bar food.
Excellent bar. Hot waistresses!. This Place is excellent fot any ocassion. Great tables and cold beers!
disappointed. I went to Yankee Doodles to watch Lakers' final game. I went there because I saw it on Citysearch's top 10 list. I felt I've been cheated. The place sucks. Compare to Fox Sports at Irvine this place is so quiet, nobody cheers on anything, everybody just mind their own business. also Fox sports don't need to charge $5 coverage fee, and no $15 min expense per person rule. In general I won't come back to this place again.
Was at Yankee Doodles for the last Laker game of the season. Great game and great place to watch. Tons of big screens and beer specials. Plus , there were Lakers girls there!
Would recommend it highly for watching all the playoffs games!
Not-So-Friendly Confines. If nothing else, Yankee Doodle serves it's purpose: Bar food, TV's, alcohol, pool, Golden Tee, air hockey, foosball, arcade basketball, video games. The problem, though, is that the service is so frustratingly inconsistent, ranging from, well, unremarkable to down-right rude. Ask a manager to put a particular event on one of the 40+ TV's, and you're as likely to get ignored as you are to get denied. Add to that their use of "special event" (read: higher) pricing for things like the world series, and you get a sense your less a patron and more a source of revenue.
Bad Service, Bad Food. When you see Yankee Doodles on 3rd Street, my recommendation is to keep on walking...I know there's better places to eat on 3rd street besides this place. i went for a late lunch on a weekday. there wasnt a lot of people there, but for how long we waited for our food, you would've thought that it was a busy, friday night. by the time the food came, it was just more disappointment. there wasnt a large selection of food to choose from. we ordered calamari for appetizer, then fish & chips and a philly cheesesteak for entrees. they were all horrible. it was comparable to dennys, maybe worse considering the price. it was also service without a smile.
