We had dinner here countless times. Food was always good but the place a bit crowded during the weekend evenings. It is within walking distance from Rancho Las Palmas resort so restaurant is very convenient when we stayed at the resort during weekend getaways.
We have a 5 yo so we know is not always easy to wait with him so we go a bit earlier, around or before 6 PM is usually OK not too long wait.

We went to the Yard House during happy hour when you can enjoy a great range of offers on food and drink. I have read previous reviews in TA so was slightly apprehensive but was impressed on the whole. Reviews i have seen say that the place is noisy but we just thought it was filled with atmosphere. Go to a wine bar if you want a quiet drink. There are over 100 beers to choose from from light to blonde to dark ales. There were offers on wine and cocktails too. The happy hour also extended to certain foods too which arrived quickly and were tasty.

Would definately visit again if I was in the Palm Springs area again.

We stayed at the rancho las palmas and the food was horrible there so we ate here one night and its good and consistent with all the other locations! You must try the lemon soufflé for dessert! Well worth the yummy calories!

We used to frequent the Yard House. Not anymore. When dealing with a mass-marketed chain in a resort community (where we happen to be permanent weekend residents), I guess it's necessary to put up with certain inconveniences. But when we repeatedly experience long waits of more than an hour (reservations not accepted) and a hostess attitude of not really caring, it gets on your nerves. After really long waits at the table and the order is wrong or the food is cold, it really gets on your nerves. When the bill you finally receive after practically begging to finish up the all-night marathon is someone else's bill and it takes amanger to agree that you didn't order what you didn't order, it's time to call it quits.

The food was great, the wait staff was great, but I gave it a very good rating because I was miserably hot the entire time. I understand it was hot outside, but come on, this is the desert, shouldn't the owners be used to keeping this place cooled off inside? By the time I left, my clothes were wrinkled and soggy and my hair hung down in sweaty strings. Not the look I was going for on a Friday night! The drink choices are extensive. Maybe I'll go back in the winter to try it again.
