We ate lunch there our last day. It is right next to the Embassy suites which we stated at (4 stars for that). I'd pass it each night walking and there was always a wait. Finally went there for lunch and everything was very good from the food to the service. Also a decent value for Waikiki. Beer prices are very reasonable too.

We had been to other Yard Houses in the past and were very pleased with our experiences there, but we left disappointed from this one. We arrived around 6:30 or 7 on a Wednesday night with no reservation and waited 30 minutes for a table, which is what we had expected. Location is good, right on Beach Walk, so we busied ourselves wandering into the various shops there. Once we were seated we waited for almost 5 minutes before a waitress stopped and took our drink order. Another 4 or 5 minutes before we received them. Considering we just ordered water it didn't demand the wait time it did. At that point we ordered our food and preceded to wait another 35-40 minutes for our food. We started with salads. The garden salad was basic as was the ginger soy salad- but the dressing was very good. The entrees were mediocre at best. I had the Mediterranean scallops with brown rice tabbouleh. For the price I expected more than 4 small scallops (they were barely bigger than quarters) and a small portion of tabbouleh. Two had the chili lime shrimp and it was lukewarm and the shrimp was very tough, almost in edible. The ham and pineapple pizza was okay, really nothing special. Overall, we left very disappointed and wondering what went wrong.

“Great Happy Hour”

Excellent Happy Hour food and tasty strong drinks. Never disappointed and reasonably priced. Four drinks, two or three appi's for about $45. Wish we had one in Vancouver BC.

“As expected - busy and fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2014

We love the chain of Yardhouse restaurants and was glad to see they are now in Honolulu. We live in Los Angels and frequent three or four of their locations at least once a month. I am an owner of a local micro and our beer is served in all of the Southern California locations.

“Long Wait, Great Beer Choices!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2014

We arrived about 7:45 pm on a weekday and waited about 45 minutes for a table. We were overwhelmed by the food choices and beer selections. We got a flight of 6 beers to taste so that we could choose a beer for later. Our appetizers consisted of the ahi poke stack, lobster crab artichoke dip and a vodka shrimp pasta. I couldn't say any of these dishes stuck out as being superb, kind of bland actually. The restaurant is very vibrant and since there are many choices, maybe next time the food will be worth our wait.
