(Visited 09/2015): This Yard House location is attached to the Linq hotel on the Strip (Las Vegas Blvd), so parking in that garage is the best bet.
There is both a downstairs and upstairs patio outside with tables that offer a view of the ferris wheel. Inside is laid out similar to other locations of this chain. Dark wood, art on the walls and a circular bar in the center with taps all the way around.
In terms of beer, there are well over 100 taps at Yard House with a lot of common craft breweries and macros but as with other locations there are some regional and local breweries represented like Ninkasi, Firestone Walker, Joseph James, Bad Beat, CraftHaus and Tenaya Creek. Flights are available. A few bottles too but nothing very noteworthy.
Service on a relatively slow weekday lunch on the patio was good. The server was efficient and knowledgeable about the beers.
Food at Yard House is consistently pretty good. Our group all enjoyed the appetizers and sandwiches we picked.
Overall Yard House is usually a pretty safe bet as far as chains go, with several good beer options and a nice food menu. Especially in the wasteland of the Strip it is worth checking out.
One of the better Yardhouse locations...primarily due to their location on the Linq restaurant and entertainment street and right across from the giant Linq Ferris wheel. Note that Iíve been to many Yardhouseís and Iím not really a fan. World of Beer does the corporate mega draft line thing so much better. My biggest pet peeve here is that with up to 150 drafts (depending on the location) YHís flights are pre-chosen except for one beer per flight. Whereas WOB allows any combination you want. I have no problem with "recommended" flights for those that need the assistance...but required flights really defeats the point of going to a mega-draft place for me. Being Vegas though...this is a good centrally located choice on the strip that I often found myself stopping at...even if only for a pint of two. They are convenient for appetizers too...but there are so many better Vegas choices for any serious meals.
Outside there is a bar serving beer in plastic glass from 20 tap. I had their House IPA brewed by Uinta, standing by the bar watching people passing by in the shopping street. The inside bar and restaurant is huge. The bar is like and big oval island offering 145 draught beers. Nothing rare and extreme but for sure a wide range of breweries and styles. The place was very busy but I had no problem finding a seat at the bar. Finding a table was worse. Of course, you canít see all the taps from where you are seated, but there is an informative beer menu available. The fixed flights didnít suit me. All beers are available as 9 oz. The glass is called "Shorthys" I tried beers from Bad Beat, Uinta, Sea Dog, Ommegang and Abita. Service was polite. Be aware, on a hot summer day itís cold sitting inside. Only wearing a t-shirt and air-conditioning can be a freezing combination.
Large and polished and soulless bar space tucked back in an outdoor mall street at the base of the ferris wheel. Lots of beer on tap but not a lot of great beer on tap. Alaskan Smoked Porter didnít show well, and a couple of local beers were underwhelming. Las Vegas is full of terrible places to drink, so all things considered itís nice to have a craft beer bar in the area, but it felt like I was sitting in a Gordon Biersch attached to a shopping mall.
Stayed at the Linq, so yard house was the closest decent bar. Overall itís a good place for a beer on the strip. Selection is nice, they pour smaller glass sizes and they have 3 fixed flights, with 5 beers each - house, Belgian and IPA. Worth a visit.
Went here on a Sunday just off the plane from the UK. Managed to sink a few good DIPAs and a New Holland Impy. Decided to get some food to soak up the beer, was also good. First place for Craft beer in Vegas for me, bit of a walk from the MGM where I am staying, probably worth it.
Stopped in for a couple of beers while spending a weekend in Vegas. This location is pretty similar to the other 2 Yard House locations Iíve been to, although maybe a little smaller. Around 100-150 taps, not sure the exact number, but good selection. Decent place to get a beer tick right off the strip.
