The place was packed at 6:00 on a November Thursday night. While that makes getting a table tough, for a foreigner it's a good sign that you're in the right place. I was travelling alone, so I skipped the 10m wait and ate at the bar. Immediately I noted the tremendous variety of beers/ales on tap and settled into a Belgian dubbel while parusing the menu. All the brews I had that night were fantastic, though expensive (8-$9 per pint). For food I had the chicken enchalada stack, and it was as good as the beer. Absolute heaven. The bartender was very friendly, helpful, and quick, and the food came out amazingly fast. Be warned that Legacy Place is a very popular shopping center and parking can be a challenge.

Bottom line: At any restaurant, on any day, and with any waiter you can have a bad experience. My visit on this day was perfect and I would return in an instant. If you're in the area, it's worth a try.

Beer menu alone gets this place a 5-star review, 112 brews on tap. The food is good and their 1/2 price appies menu Mon-Fri before 6PM is outstanding. Bar seating is spacious and service is good. Worst thing about it is the parking outside in Legacy Place, and the fact that it gets way too crowded sometimes, but there's an obvious reason for that...the place is terrific.

We went to the restaurant early Saturday evening (around 5:00 pm). At that time, the wait was about 1/2 hour. When we were seated, it took a really long time to get our appetizers and a really long time to get our main meal. Food (when it arrived) was not hot. So, service was fair, food not hot and it was really noisy....Will not be returning !

My friend and I recently stayed in Dedham for a show and decided to try the Yard House. The atmosphere was very fun. Great music, excellent servers. The wings and onion rings were delicious! Definitely will go back when we visit the area again.

We arrived at about midnight on a Friday night after a long flight and drive from Logan Airport.

We initially picked the Yard House since it was one of the few places listed as open at that hour in the area serving food.

To be fair, we are not this bar/restaurant's typical Friday night demographic.

The place was packed with seemingly happy people drinking, eating, socializing, watching flat screens with sports while mind-numbing loud music blasted.

We were hungry so we stayed. They have an enormous assortment of beers to try and the two that we did were excellent. Service was prompt, friendly and helpful. We asked about portion size and were told one sandwich would feed two people. So, we shared a club sandwich made with real, fresh turkey, freshly made fries and onion rings. Delicious. Really. And, as promised, more than enough for a late night dinner for two. And all the other food going buy looked good as well.

Cost was very inexpensive.

For the food quality, beer selection, service and price, I'd happily go back but when we left the Yard House, my wife and I were both hoarse from screaming at each each other across our booth before we gave up talking and just ate. Maybe they could institute Quiet Hours along with Happy Hours so we could eat and drink in peace.
