Food was good, interior looked a little worn

Good food, we have visited another Yard House several years ago and food was better that time, service was average and interior appeared a little dated.

It was a Wednesday night but still very busy. The beer menu was extensive to say the least and well laid out with beers listed by styles. The food menu had plenty of choice. I chose the calamari appetiser which was an absolute delight to eat and salmon for entree which was very good too. I only had one more... More

Service was not present, they wander off then wander back looking confused, not clearing plates or refilling anything. i walked to the bar to refill my soda, walking right past the server who was standing near talking to another server.

Packed on a Monday night no less. Great selection of beer and a menu that will satisfy all appetites. I selected the apple brine pork chop which came with roasted Brussel Sprouts and butternut squash, very good!

Stopped into Yard House while in Newport Beach visiting friends. The draft list is enormous (142 I think). The food was really good upscale bar food. We had the Kung Pao Calamari which was good, and I loved the Black Truffle Cheeseburger. It was delicious! The atmosphere was that of an upscale sports bar with large TVs and a big... More

The service here is great! They are very efficient especially for how busy they can get during happy hour. The spinach cheese dip on the happy hour menu is a great starter! The menu is expansive and my wife and I have not had a bad thing on the menu! They also have their own house beers which are always... More

The fried foods were over done and too much grease. I had the fish and chips, which I have had before at other locations. After 2 pieces I... More

This is a great "meet friends and drink" place. Not a "let's get together and talk about your stupid hubby place";) Food is good. Service is great. Happy hour is decent. Go early if you have a big group. Gets crowded quickly.

My daughter and I began our holiday shopping early, when suddenly we needed a snack! She selected the Yard House. First, I was a little worried… happy 😄 hour on a Friday with a place known for craft beer and rock n roll! Yes, the place was busy! Yet it was well staffed, all very friendly and efficient and the...

Best Georgia Peach Martini in the world. Be sure to add sugar on the rim. Their ribeye steak is a tremendous value, and the service is great.
