“Great Burgers!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 13, 2013

Of all the food we ate here, the burgers are best. Salads were fresh but very light on dressing. Soup okay. Do not order pizza. Calamari was over cooked

“Nice!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

Not bad at all! TV screens everywhere. Really was impressed with the decor and overall lay-out of the restaurant. Food was really good as well. I ordered from the lunch special, the portion was very acceptable and the cost not so bad.

“Great beer selection but got sick from the food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013 via mobile

The beer and food menu is very extensive including dozens of foreign and domestic beers on tap. the food was good however unfortunately I got a little bit of food poisoning from the turkey burger I ordered-otherwise would've given it 4 stars. Service was excellent. Fun, loud atmosphere.

“Great find for a beer lover....and great food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

The Yard House claims to have more beers on tap than any other pub in the US. As much as I'd like to do the necessary research, I'm willing to take them at their word. The service was great, and they do a happy hour with 1/2 price beers and 1/2 appetizers - call to check days/hours. The appetizers were way beyond pub grub. The ahi was perfect, and they have an amazing take on a California Roll. Very friendly place, eclectic crowd, bargain prices at happy hour, and a subdued, tasteful room. While we visiting much more expensive restaurants this trip, we never had a better time, better food, or a more reasonable check!

“Mixed reviews”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 25, 2013

My initial visit was good. Good food, great beer selection. However I ended up being there during a shift change and the bartender before shift change was hands down better than the one after shift change. However neither bartender was very personable. The manager was personable, but seemed a little lost on how to help his staff. I'd give the Yard House another shot.
