“pretty good!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

this was our first experience at yard house. as soon as we walked in we were shocked by how big it was! our waitress was very nice. we ordered appetizers and they were the only disappointing item of our visit. we had calamari and really bad wings. both items were cold and the buffalo wings were the worst that i have ever had... but whatever. the beer selection was huge and nice and cold. everyone in our party of 5 were really happy with all of the entrees.

Hi yourmomgoestocollege - It sounds like you were generally happy with your visit, but we wish the calamari and buffalo wings would have been delivered hot. You also mentioned not enjoying the taste of the wings. We are sorry for not completely meeting your expectations. Fortunately, everything else tasted great. If time permits, I would ask that you contact me directly at yhguestrelations@darden.com as we always want our guests to be 100% delighted.

“Perfect for Dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

Perfect for dinner, especially if you are a beer lover. Their service is impeccable, and I think it's the way they do it. You have a main server, who has a bunch of sub servers below him. The main server would always check up on us, but it was always someone else who would bring us our food, our drinks, our appetizers, etc... I'm not complaining as the services was great. Also to note was the temperature in the room. 100+ outside, but perfect inside. We never felt hot, nor cold.

“Great food, nice atmosphere”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2013

I was by myself, so I sat at the bar. Service was good, food was even better! I had the fish and chips, and they were delicious-large portions. Only negative was that it is a bit loud in the evening.

“Good Food Young Drink Crowd”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

This place has good food and great prices. the portions are very large, the only draw back, this is not a restaurant if you have children. Lots of drinking and some people as you know can get obnoxious when they drink, and you definetly dont want children in this type of atmosphere

“Good food, but don't sit in the back room”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

Food was good, service was great, but it was sweltering hot.

Wait time...we were a party of six, and they were able to get us seated within 20 minutes of arriving.

Food...food was great. Cuban pork sandwich was excellent. Truffle fries were awesome. My daughter liked the onion soup. My son loved the orange chicken. My husband said the ahi tuna salad was perfect. Two vegetarian friends were thrilled with the vegetarian selections on the menu. I tasted their veg buffalo "wings" and another veg selection (can't remember), and they were both pure awesomeness (I usually hate tofu and vegetarian type foods). I wanted a fruity drink, and the waitress suggested a pomegranate margarita, and it was really good.

Service...considering that we were 4 adults and two picky teenagers that were unfamiliar with the menus and kept changing our minds, our waitress was extremely patient. She made great suggestions on food and drink items. Despite the fact that we were sitting in the back room, she constantly checked up on us, refilled drinks, got our order perfectly right.

Major con...it was sweltering hot in that back room; it was cooler outside where it was 115, than it was inside.
