Stopped in to check this place out and started out by enjoying a beer while waiting for a table on the patio on a beautiful 80-degree evening in early April. The atmosphere is nice, upscale, and open. Their draft list is the biggest around, but itís pretty predictable. Then things took a turn for the worse. After waiting 35 minutes (they told us 30-40, so that wasnít a big deal), we saw a table get sat outside that came in behind us. So I asked about it, and they said their party was bigger than ours, and they were giving them the bigger table, but that we shouldnít be waiting more than 5 more minutes. Then 5 minutes later, another table sat before us, this time the same party size. That was enough for us; we told them to cancel our wait. And as we walked out, the second party they went to seat came back up front because they didnít actually have a place for them (which was actually supposed to be us). Suffice to say we wonít be back.

A lot stuff you can find at any good beer store except on tap and served in an easy-to-knock-over yard glass. Traffic is a pain, parking is a pain, and it is a little too ritzy for me.

Mammoth place with tons of tvs and beers. This is one of those fringe beer/dbag hang out spots. They do have some good beer like Head Hunter and Jackie Oís. However, for almost a 100 beers on tap there were 3 I would order, and almost all you can get at any bar in America. It is what it is, a place to drink beer close to the stadiumís. The food was a huge letdown. Not only did all of our food come out cold, but it came out cold twice. They comped us but come on. The fries were decent. The tacoís were boring, except for the vampire. This place is a skip, especially at the really expensive prices. $7 for most pints, yikes in cheap Cincy.

Great place. Selection is almost perfect. Best selection I have been to. I did not eat, but friends did, and wht I sampled was good. If in town, I will be back.

Funny how all my Ratebeer colleagues have had terrible service here. Iím not surprised, but my experience is unique... Iíve stopped by here maybe 15-20 times now, and have always been happy, generally. The thing is, though, I ALWAYS visit between 3-6pm, during happy hour, when itís not so busy. So I pay a reaosnable price, and get good service. I also get the 9oz "Shorty", which I really enjoy. Itís the perfect portion for me to rate from, really. Yeah, out of the 160 taps, 150 are predictable, but every now and then they get a good rare beer, and thatís what keeps bringing me back. Luckily they keep the "chalkboard series" listing pretty updated on their website, so I can keep track of the interesting stuff they have without actually having to physically check too often. Very nice, kind of modern interior... I donít really care for all the metal and exposed pipes, but you gotta love the huge, open windows that provide great vistas of the banks in downtown cincinnati. Appetizers Iíve tried during happy hour have been reasonably tasty. Overall itís not a place Iíd call a Cincinnati gem, but it is in my regular rotation.

As Fortuna would have it, I end up here instead of ei8ghball. Easily find two good beers Iíve never bad Before. Bartender tells me the kegs is done and that itíll be a couple of minutes to replace. Granted itís a playoff game in an hour, it takes 10 minutes and I speak up. Five minutes later I get the second beer I order. Yes you are busy but donít lie to me.

Getting here and parking is difficult at best. Clean large space like all Yard House locations. Friendly staff. Food is upscale sports bar food. Beer selection can be drank at any tap bar in area with less than 5 local brewer beers. Unless you are there for a sports game, pick any other tap or brewer location.

Visited the new Yard House on a Friday night for a buddyís birthday. The place is huge, shiny and new, part of the large Banks development on downtown Cincinnatiís riverfront. The crowd was yuppie. The place was well-staffed, but the servers and bartenders were incredibly rude. Our group had three different staff members act like complete assholes. Others were all right. Donít expect any beer knowledge. I asked the bartender if they had anything new that wasnít on the menu. He gave a quick, mean "NO" and I found this to be false within about 20 seconds. So I ordered something not in the menu. 160 taps, and not many are rotators or seasonals; they like to keep the same stuff on for the most part. The rotators were almost all IPAs; some variety would have been welcome. We had a couple appetizers at the table, which were fine. The prices were high for Cincy; north of $6 for most pints, many of which wouldnít be over $5 elsewhere. The place had a corporate feel, which is obviously not surprising, given the huge corporation that owns it along with Olive Garden and Red Lobster. It just amazes me that a place can have 160 taps and the overall selection isnít nearly as interesting as what Dutchís does with 8 taps. Unless they get a special release I canít get elsewhere (they wonít), I donít see myself coming back here. Update: Iíve come four times now, never from my own choice, and the service has been laughably bad every time. It hasnít gotten any better since opening. Just awful service all-around.
