Yak-A-Doo’s opened for business in April 1999 in the Holiday Inn North (now the Clarion Hotel). Over the years this location had operated as The Escadrille, Boomers and Christopher’s. The new management completely refurbished and updated the facilities, which consist of a large main dining room, the bar/lounge, and two banquet meeting rooms. All located on Warrenton Road (Rte 17) right off exit 133B of I-95, within a few miles of Old Town Fredericksburg, Central Park, golf, civil war sites, etc.
The Main Dining Room, which is open for breakfast and dinner, is also utilized for wedding receptions, large parties and banquets. Tastefully decorated, with a fireplace and large floor to ceiling windows, this beautiful room can accommodate up to 200 people and has been the site of many memorable occasions over the years.
The George Washington Room is suitable for smaller banquets, corporate events, conferences and meetings for up to 125 people, while the James Madison Room accommodates smaller events for up to 75 people. Any number of layouts and lighting arrangements can be accommodated and audio/visual equipment and any other meeting requirements are on site and available.
These spaces are available at extremely competitive rates and our Banquet Manager is always available to work with any requests/requirements. Our chefs pride themselves on presenting imaginative and sumptuous banquets to satisfy the most discerning tastes. There is substantial parking available as well as rooms for guests/attendees in the onsite Clarion Hotel and at The Holiday Inn Express next door.
Yak-A-Doo’s Lounge is the heart of our operation. Over the years we’ve developed a loyal following, some local, some travelers who find our location a convenient and fun stopping place, and many others who enjoy Yak’s varied entertainment, consisting of Karaoke on Tuesdays, Dance Music on Wednesdays, and live bands on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights, Yak’s has an all day Happy Hour, from 11:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M. every day and we put out free hot appetizers from 5:00 to 7:00 P.M. Our bartenders and cocktail servers are always happy to see you and there’s always something interesting going on – either on our six big-screen TV’s or on the bandstand – or among our great customers! As our motto says: It’s Always Happenin’ At Yak-A-Doo’s.
Proper ID and dress always required. No cigar or pipe smoking, but cigarette smoking is allowed in the lounge. All other areas are non-smoking.
