“Perfect Happy Hour spot”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

The Yard House has one of my favorite beers - Pear Cider. There food is good and menu is huge. The only downside is they are always busy - so hard to get a large group in. They do allow for reservations. If you are planning for a party larger than 4 or 6 - I would try to secure something.

There are a lot of great restaurants in Brea - so if Yard House does not work out - just walk to one of the other options.

“Onion rings and beer”
Reviewed August 12, 2012

We enjoy the appetizers and beer flights. The happy hour makes this a very economical choice. The Yardhouse in Brea is just down from the Improv; great night out!

Been here on my short holiday in LA. My cousin brought me here. The staffs are friendly. The food was awesome. Good atmosphere and heaps of beers. Will definitely visit this restaurant again when I'm back to LA. Probably next year.

Don't patronize very often. Too much noise, games, etc. going on. Prefer quieter dining. Food is good and you get your money's worth.

“Finally decided to write a review on Brea Yardhouse!”
Reviewed July 28, 2012

As a beer lover, I often used to travel to the Long Beach Yard House (or Triangle Square, or the Spectrum - as each new location opened) to get my Yard House "fix". When Brea opened, in 2006 it became much easier for me and I have been much happier since. For those who have not yet tried The Yard House, I strongly recommend it to anyone who wants to sample new brews directly from the tap rather than from a bottle! Although they do offer bottles of unusual beers too. More "macro" than "micro" brewery selections are available. All styles and beers from many countries are represented. Food selections and prices are what one would expect in an "upscale casual" restaurant. My personal favorite is the Vodka shrimp pasta - or Pastrami sliders during happy hour. My wife likes their presentation of the California roll and the clam chowder. Service can vary, but always is more "spotty" on Friday and Saturday nights, as expected due to the crowds. Best bargains are at Happy Hour - M-F 3:00 PM to 6:00 PM and Sun-Thurs 10 PM to midnight. Lots of TV screens for sports fans. Not the best for casual conversation ( often noisy in much of the restaurant and bar areas when crowded). Reservations can be made for parties of eight or more, except for Saturday from 6 PM to 10 PM. For those who already know about Yard House, but not this particular one -- standard menu, atmosphere and ambiance (beer selections do vary slightly from location to location).Parking is relatively ample behind the restaurant or across the street in the multi-level parking structure during the week. However, on the weekends, especially after 6 PM - and if a popular new movie is playing - parking close to the restaurant can be difficult to find. I would just pay for the valet parking out back. I patronize it frequently enough, that when during the Holiday Season (or sometimes during other times of the year) they have promotions - like buy $100 in gift certificates and get $20 of additional gift certificates for free - I always buy a few to use for myself and then get the added extra benefit!
