Nice place

Food was good not great , but always the same every time I go. Close to my hotel and easy to get in for a quick lunch. Can get in and out less than 45 mins on a lunch break.

Lunch on a weekday and almost no one in the restaurant. That would not, however, keep the service from being slow, careless and unconcerned. The cook needs to pay attention to the orders as they come in; he needs to be taught that medium is not the same as rare. The manager got involved after the first order was sent... More

Liked the 40+ beers on offer so visited on arrival in San Diego. Ordered calamari to accompany my beers but found this mainly batter and little squid. The rest of the meal was adequate but not outstanding. Returned for drinks the following evening and had good bar service but chose to dine elsewhere. On our last day we returned at... More

I have been to other Yard House locations and they are consistently good! The food is somewhat unique but also bar type food. We had a great waitress who was attentive and helpful!

I was visiting friends in Del Mar and we decided to go to San Diego for dinner one night. Being that it was a holiday weekend, we knew most places would be crowded. After a few stops which involved long wait times, we tried the Yard House on 4th Ave. Since the wait was only 30 minutes, we stayed. To... More

We went here with our children to watch the College World Series on TV as I knew they would have the game on. But we didn't realize that they would have the music blaring so loud we could hardly hear ourselves think much less talk about the game. They had a really varied menu and huge selection of craft beers... More

The menu was amazing and Colby (our server) was really great. This was our first visit to Yard House and we were introduced to what we needed to know on the menu and given the time to take a look and make choices that made us really happy and enjoy our dinner! I don't think there could've been a bad... More

Calling all beer lovers, and the party crowd! The largest selection of beer on display makes the bar the best place to sit and enjoy whatever may be happening next to you, across from you or anywhere else at the bar.

Amazing beer selection. Good food (I had the lamb burger which is highly recommended, and the boneless wings, which were better than average). My meal (2 beers, 1 order of wings, and a burger) came out to $50 which is more than I would have expected...but it is what it is.
