My fries fell on my friend's steak as I was being served what turned out to be a dried out overcooked pastrami sandwich. The waiter picked up the fries, put them on a plate, and handed them to me. Ok. I could still see the steak's seasoning on them and the butter. This is not even about training staff....it is... More

We enjoyed the Happy Hour Menu here, ordering nine or ten different dishes, and almost everything was tasty and satisfying. The seared ahi was garnished with a delicious sauce accompanied by wasabi, pickled ginger, and red cabbage. The chicken wings (There were ten of them) had a delicious sauce that was both sweet and savory. The onion rings were tasty,... More

Surf & Turf - ordered burger medium, perfectly cooked. Came topped with Maine lobster pieces sauteed in garlic butter, grilled asparagus, and Swiss cheese. Tomato bearnaise sauce, pickle strips, and thin fries on the side. Paired with a few House White Ales, the perfect meal. A bit pricey, but well worth it.

This is not where we typically eat. However, I was pleasantly surprised. The food was very, and very reasonable. Beer was amazing, and the server took time to explain and make recommendations despite the fact that the restaurant was busy. The staff accommodated a table of 14 people very quickly. What more can I say..... i am impressed, and will... More

Hundreds of beers on tap, good happy hour, and a large selection of food on the menu. the service is good and the food is good. Great place to hit the bar for a game but usually very crowded after work.

This is my favorite place for happy hour because of the half price drinks and bar food. They have the best onion rings ever, crispy and flavorful not too heavy on batter and choice of two dipping sauces. The edamame is a good veggie snack among the high calorie treats. Like the chicken nachos with colorful chips, cheese salsa and... More

I stopped in for lunch based on the reviews, but left disappointed. The service was great, but even through the menu looked great, the food was not very good. I wanted to eat light so I ordered the edamame and tuna poke. The edamame was typically served cold, but my waitress told me it can be warmed, which is what... More

Yard House always has massive menus with so much to choose from that it will take time. Whatever you choose, leave room for desert. If you go that route, Get Smor'e of that. The Smor'e desert isn't like the smaller Smor'e that we made at the campfire. This one is about 7" around with a graham cracker crust, chocolate layer,... More
