Ok, so you've found a listing worth pausing for... First order of business: check out the overall rating.

This score is the voice of the people; it's an average of all the user ratings for that place.

The accuracy of this score is dependant on the size of the community that supplied it, so don't automatically rush out to the first 5 star place you find.

Double check the total number of reviews; a 5 star overall rating based on only 1 review really isn't very telling.

You can also click on the rating details to see a breakdown of the rating distribution and the fluctuation of ratings over time.

Still satisfied with your choice? Time to dive deeper into the details.

Here, you've got your standard contact info - address, phone number and website - plus a nifty map to the right to see exactly where you've got to go.

Below you'll see more information to help you decide if this is the place for you.

For example, restaurants might feature details about their price range, the availability of outside seating, or their suitability for kids and groups.

One other perk you might notice if you're looking at a restaurant, is the ability to make a reservation via a direct connection to OpenTable.

Now to the meat of it - the reviews.

By default, reviews are sorted by Yelp based on a magical formula meant to feature the most helpful reviews.

But, you can use any of the other links to sort the reviews however you'd like.

If you decide the place is close to the mark, but not quite perfect, check out the selections to the right under "people who viewed this also viewed" and "related lists" to see some similar results.
