“Casual dinner with friends”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 9, 2013

The restaurant is situated in a very new and clean shopping and entertainment complex. We were seated immediately, offered drink in a timely manner. Without a doubt they have more beers on tap than any other establishment I have ever been to. So, beer selection...awesome. Service,great. Food, disappointing. The appies crab cakes were dry and salty. The Gorganzola burger was bland tasting and very greasy. This is a great place to try new beers, but grab a bite before you go.

“My first time at Yard House was great”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

They have a huge beer selection, the menu has something for everyone and their outside area attached to the bar is a great place to wait for a table. We had no trouble on a busy Saturday night finding space while we waited and had great service from all.

“Go here for beer and appetizers!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2013

Great selection of beer...the ladies liked the raspberry beer. Delicious appetizers, especially the kung Pao calamari (except for the tentacles). The flatbreads are nice too. This location is at "the River", nice place to stroll, eat, and maybe catch a movie. We ate on the patio.

“Good food... Great beer!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Visited Yard House with a huge group, so did not get to order off the menu. Were served a huge variety of appetizers that were delicious! The selection of beer is phenomenal! Only reason for 4 starts is that it is very loud in the building, so it was hard to carry on conversations with anyone except the person right next to you and my ears were actually ringing after leaving the restaurant. But fun place and would revisit!

“Not such a good experience”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 24, 2013

Went for lunch with friends. Even though the restaurant was not that busy, meals took forever to come out of the kitchen but only three came at once . . . no sign of the fourth. All the meals were only lukewarm & had to be sent back. Waitress said the manager would come over. All he said was that they would remake. Another long wait. The three meals returned along with the fourth. Two meals still only lukewarm but we were not willing to put up with another long wait so ate them anyway. One meal was comped but it didn't make up for the poor service, presentation & taste. Won't be back.
