Great restaurant located on one of the main streets at Victoria Gardens in Ranch Cucamonga. The food is good, steaks are a little pricey but overall good dinner spot. Highly suggest making a reservation, particularly since we had a group of 10 and even with a reservation we still got stuck waiting 30 minutes to be seated. Many draft beers on tap, truly a beer meisters paradise.
The Yard House I think was recently sold to another company, and appears to have lost some of it's luster from approximately a year ago, but still good place for beer, food and sports watching.

So Ashlee is the only reason this isn't a one dot review. Normally I'm a "if you don't have something nice to say"... kind of person. If you want the fun Yard House experience go to the Long Beach Yard House. Those servers act like their 'give a daham' works.
We love beer, we love to take people to dinner and choose their beer and then watch them love beer too. Yard House is a good choice for us because they have secular beers that are recognizable and can be purchased around town as opposed to BJ's lovely but proprietary offerings.
Here's the thing; my boyfriend HATES fruit in his beer. When he ordered the beer from sweet young server #1 he nicely asked that the 9 shorties be brought without any fruit, "don't even let them look at fruit" he said charmingly. Sweet young server #2 brings out 1 shorty with a lemon in it we told her "not our's". She returned with sweet young server #3 and the other 8 shorties with a total of 6 lemons squished on the rims. Thank goodness the dark beer is served without fruit. My daughter requested that at least the fruit hater's two drinks be replaced. SYS #3 said; "it's okay, look, no more lemons" as she pulled them off the rims and laid them on her tray. We further pushed and told her we ordered them without fruit, SYS looks down at the soaking wet order paper and contradicts us; "no, this says with fruit". So the three men at the table decide that they don't want to upset these adorable (sincerely, the servers are cuties) ladies and just took their warmish beers as server. You would think if we can get a super cold beer on a summer after noon at Shoreline Village, we should be able to expect it on a February evening in Rancho Cucamonga.
When our original server returns and asks how is everything, we tell her and then she tells us how wrong we are. Huh? Fortunately, it was time for her to go, she's on lunch service (ah hah! Maybe the dinner servers are better?) Through out this whole thing runners are bringing random plates to our table and we are sending them away, it got to be entertaining...I digress.
So, the first server clocks out and Ashlee swoops in! She was awesome enough that if you end up forgetting that you aren't part of a herd or bus tour and you don't need to settle on this restaurant and you get Ashlee, go with it. Ashlee was on the ball, maybe she was at the wrong restaurant too.

Yard House was conceived to be a restaurant with a very large selection of draft beers and an offering of a variety of American dishes. The name Yard House refers to a special, tall glass that was used to serve beer to tired stage coach drivers in 17th, 18th century England.
Today, you don't need an excuse of a "long journey" to visit one of the locations of this fine establishment. They are in fourteen states and opening in a few others. We visited the Rancho Cucamonga, California location (in the Victoria Mall) a few days ago. We started with
Calamari, Fried Chicken Strips and an Ahi Poke bowl. The calamari was cooked tender and crunchy and both dips were very tasty. The Ahi bowl is a nice variation of the Mexican "seviche" theme. For main dish we had Spicy Jambalaya, Fish and Chips, Mediterranean Seared Scallops, Turkey Burger and a kid pepperoni pizza. My Jambalaya was so tasty, that finishing the plate, I contemplated licking it clean. The scallops were plump and seared to perfection, and the Fish and Chips could have been served in a "London Times" news paper. It was very authentic. We tried several beers, among them the house ale - courtesy of Firestone Brewery, Boulevard Pale Ale and Grimbergen Double. We are planning to visit Yard House again soon, so we can sample other fine beers and try their variety of dishes and appetizers.

Cool restaurant in a fun location at Victoria Gardens. The food is decent and the menu pretty expansive. The outside patio is beautiful....especially at night when all the fancy lights are on. My main gripe is the entire area is smoking. I understand smokers deserve a great place too, but why not split the patio in half and leave half of the area for us non-smokers? Our meal was ruined by the smoker behind us who kept turning her head our way to blow her smoke ~so she wouldn't offend her fellow dining guests, I presume. Anyway....not a good experience.

Astonishing amount of beer selection, very good service, not too much variety in food selection but good quality, taste & presentation. Will come back again.
