“Great beer selection and atmosphere!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2014

The menu is extensive, almost to the point of being overwhelming, but it's worth a close look. The beer list is exhaustive. We watched the NFC Championship game there in January 2014 and had a blast. The crowd was collegial, though evenly split when it came to choice of teams to cheer for. I will be back, I'm sure.

“Very Good Service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Brandon was a great waiter and the food was very good. This was my second time to the yard house and I think the atmosphere is slick but noisy. I would go back because the beer variety is outstanding and was pleased with the drinks, meal and dessert .

“Nice New Year's Eve!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Had no problem getting a table on New Year's Eve. There were four of us and we each ordered different beers/mixed drinks. The waitstaff was helpful and extremely efficient! Our appetizer was prompt, and our entrees were good-size portions and delicious! The rib-eye with garlic mashed potatoes and green beans was a great value--nice cut of meat that was cooked to order. What we liked best was that everyone's food at the table was brought out at the same time so there was no awkwardness about watching your food get cold while waiting for your dining companions to receive their entrees. Will definitely return the next time we're in Raleigh!

“Third trip and time to review”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 6, 2014

The place is nice inside. Very modern lots of screens for sports. Service has always been good except for being seated which seems to take way too long especially when there are many many tables open. Burgers are good, but sometime they come out very greasy. On our last trip I ordered the pastrami sandwich which contained the words New York in the description. Big let down here. There might have been 3 very thin slices of meat on the sandwich and it was very greasy. I'm puzzled why New York delis can sell a pastrami sandwich with enough meat on it for 2 or 3 sandwiches, but no one in the south can do the same. Yard House would be well advised to take this one off the menu. My only other gripe is that they always (like most restaurants) attempt to serve you cold fries. This never works with me. This place is a bit pricey. One burger and pastrami sandwich and two beers each rings up a $60 tab!

Hi johnhinnc - Thank you for the compliments about our restaurant layout and the service we provide. It is upsetting to hear the food you ordered was not up to our high standards. This is very concerning. Please accept our apologies for allowing our standards to slip. This is clearly an opportunity that we want to address with our culinary team right away. We would welcome an opportunity to redeem ourselves. Would you please email us at yhguest@yardhouse.com so that we can try to make up for the disappointment?
