You can further sort those results with specific filters, like “delivery”, “highest rated”“Accepts Credit Cards”, “Good For Kids”,“Good for Groups”, “Takes Reservations”, etc. - or by any of the scores of specific food categories. Restaurants are rated using a simple but highly effective 5-star rating system, a cumulative median based on the reviews that have been posted. A search bar located above the reviews enables patrons to further search for specific items using keywords, such as “appetizers.” Yelp offers some of the most specific and detailed restaurant statistics of any website. For instance, the restaurant stats may include the price range (“$” means cheap eats while “$$$$” indicates a splurge), if it is wheelchair accessible and whether or not take-out is available.
