Went here last night. yes, there are tons of beer on tap, most are standard and regular and not too good. yay guinness on tap in the "dark strong" category. The only imperial stout on tap was old rasputin and they were all out of it. Food was expensive but good. we ended up ordering a bottle of wine instead of beers. Very frat bar kind of crowd as well. lots of blue button down shirts boasting about quarterly earnings while drinking stella artois.

Too many bros that try to impress their girlfriends that they know good craft beer. Over 100 taps of mediocre stuff, without an emphasis on local craft beer (Strike/Palo Alto Brewing/Devilís Canyon/Drakes). Whatever, food is expensive but decent.

Typical Yard House that you can find anywhere in the US. Like an Applebeeís of beer restaurants. Good variety of many beers, but mostly the more common stuff. Food is above average (definitely better than Applebees), but same kind of feel.

One of the newest editions. Santana Row location means its always packed, but it has what you expect.

Now this place is quite the hopping place...heh beer humor, for those who want a lively area with a lot of movement and talking. Their beer selection is amazing and the service is usually spot on. Though some may view the ambiance as overwhelming and I have at times I still enjoy the atmosphere none the less. If you go in on Sundays you can catch their happy hour, I believe its sometime late evening though every time Iíve caught it I barely made it in time. The food isnít bad and the value is actually o.k for the selection of beers. Just be ready to not be able to get a bar seat unless you go early or manage to snag one in the nick of time. Anyways all in all its actually a good place to go and they have very fun classic rock playing most of the time so it really is an all around great bar.
