After several hours of shopping at Fashion Island, we stopped at The Yard House for lunch. Service was efficient and excellent. Food and beverage service was timely and in the correct order (appetizers before entrée). We were impressed with the fairly substantial selection of beers. We all had items off their vegetarian menu - the Gardein selection and each of us enjoyed what we ordered. As non-meat eaters we are often limited with our choices - not here! A group of four, one person had the gardein boneless chicken wings, buffalo style and thought they were excellent - not too spicy or chewy. Two had the gardein chicken and avocado sandwiches were excellent - well seasoned and incredibly filling. Fourth had the gardein BBQ chicken salad, also a winner. We sampled some of the local beers. A nice alternative to Veggie Grill. We were there on a weekday for lunch and it was shoppers and people who appeared to be working in nearby office buildings, or maybe some of the retail stores. There were TVs with sports news throughout the venue. but they were not loud. I suspect the vibe at night would be different.
