Happily walked from hotel into the Yard House. Staff was friendly and accommodating and the food was very good. Made it just under the wire to catch happy hour and saved a bunch of $! Well worth a stop, even if you don't drink beer.

Restaurant has a lively atmosphere with sports featured on most TVs but it's not a sports bar. Menu hs alarge variety of dishes with a price for every pocket.

We were in a hurry as had a plane to catch so only wanted a sandwich. We explained we were in a hurry and with lots of asking we were served quite quickly. The food was good but as we said just club sandwiches and a salad. Drinks were regularly topped up.

Just arrived in Pasadena for a couple of days and decided to have lunch. The restaurant was busy. The staff were very friendly and produced the food in a timely manner. Had onion soup followed by a pizza. It was fairly unremarkable. Filled a hole. Probably been spoilt over the previous days at JW Marriotts in Santa Monica.

This isn't anything special and my food was not that memorable. I think I ordered some asian inspired dish. We had driven to Pasadena from Sacramento and were drained after the long drive. I wanted something fresh and tasty and this place was walking distance from our hotel. My husband is a beer lover so this place was a decent... More

It is a chain restaurant. I went on the advice of a peer thinking it was a unique institution. The signature is the selection of brews on tap. I suppose if you are looking to get drunk this is the place. The atmosphere is expansive and comfortable but you can get almost the exact same thing at a Gordon Biersch.... More

Great stop for a great selection of beers and some decent grub. Lots of TV's for sports fanatics and next to ARC Light cinema, so convenient for a movie before or after. It is loud inside, but they have a patio for outdoor dining.

We went here twice this week for drinks and appetizers. Both times we had the buffalo wings. They give you nice plump wings and the sauce is good. They are a bit on the expensive side - I think it was $10.25 for about 10 wings (I didn't count them). We also had their chips, salsa and guacamole which was... More

A very neat spot off Colorado in Pasadena. Although in the recent development, and lacking any old-town charm, the location here is great, elevated up on the second floor. Great beer selection, fantastic bar food, and a very nice staff (when we went laaaaaaaate on a monday night). A bit dark on the deck, though. Turn on some lights!

A few years ago (2006) I had a fabulous turkey burger at the Yard House in Costa Mesa. So I thought I would repeat the experience in Pasadena. Unfortunately, this was not the case. Besides being unbearably noisy (and we ate outside), this is the in-place for post pubescent fraternity boys. I ordered the turkey burger and had it the... More
