Huge bar area with some silly number of taps on offer. Actually as an out of towner, or rather country for that matter, thereís enough to keep interest here. To be fair I just wanted to drink local options which there were a few on hand. Bar dude was really friendly and chatty, which I always appreciate. Grabbed a snack of sweet potato fries which were tasty, not that anyone reading this would really give a flying one.

Stopped in here while at a conference in Seattle. Sat at the bar for an early dinner with a friend. Bartender was very nice and helpful. Lots of taps with some good west coast selections (including Firestone Walker stuff--which I canít get in Florida). Just had one beer, and it was fine (Union Jack), then had a few of the Korean short rib tacos. Freaking awesome, and was not expecting much from a place like this. A bit pricy at nearly $5 per taco (and they are pretty small). But other than that, Iíd go back.

(Visited 03/2013): The relatively new Yard House in downtown Seattle is on the corner of 4th and Pike in the Century Square building.
The interior is laid out like other Yard House locations. Dark wood and artwork on the walls, with an oval-shaped bar in the middle of the space.
The beer selection at Yard House consists of around 130 taps, which the bartender said was the most in the city. As with other locations, there are a lot of macros and common microbrewers represented, along with a good amount of local and regional options such as Rogue, Deschutes, No-Li and Boneyard. Many bottles as well. This location also participates in the "Chalkboard Series", which are limited-edition draughts and bottles from brewers such as Ninkasi, Dogfish Head, Skagit River and Upright.
Service on a weekend evening at the bar was good. The bartender was friendly and knowledgeable about Yard House beers and the Seattle beer scene.
We did not have any food on our visit.
Overall Yard House, as with many chains, has positives and negatives. Given the convenient location and good chance to find regional brews I would definitely stop by on future visits.
