From restaurants to real estate agents, nightlife venues to nail salons, and more, Yelp for Android boasts millions of reviews of local, national, and international businesses.


Excellent guidance: Whether you're new to an area or just want to venture outside of your comfort zone, Yelp's robust reviews offer a lot of guidance. Click any business, and you'll see a star rating, pricing info, photos, directions, hours, contact info, and detailed reviews. If you're short on time, Yelp also includes review highlights and puts the top reviews (written by expert Yelpers) up top for easy viewing.

Multiple ways to search: For starters, you can search by entering keywords in the search field on the default homepage or by Categories, such as Restaurants, Gyms, Dentists, Dry Cleaning, Delivery, Takeout, Reservations, and more. Under Categories, you can further filter your search results by proximity, popularity, priciness, and operating hours.

You can also scroll down the home page for restaurants accepting reservations, great outdoor bars, or wine tastings nearby. Keep scrolling for highly regarded restaurants and drinking spots in your area as well as upcoming Yelp-hosted events.

In-app reservations and bookings: Whether you want to book a table at or delivery from the hot new restaurant in town or a relaxing spa day, you won't have to leave the app to contact the business to book. You can conveniently reserve your spot inside the app. If you're looking for a service, like a doctor's or plumbing appointment, that can't be booked inside the app, you can still tap on the Call button to call or message the business from the app.

Write reviews, yourself: If you feel strongly about a business -- good or bad -- why not type up a review, upload photos, or add helpful tips?


Not as great for international businesses: Yelp is great for American business reviews, but if you're looking for recommendations for businesses abroad, then you'll be better served by an app like TripAdvisor.

Bottom Line

With its robust user-generated reviews, Yelp is the go-to app for discovering your next favorite restaurant, hairstylist, or handyman.
