A nice enough place. Was quiet when I got in, but as lunch hour wore on, started to become more and more crowded and loud. Had a table at the patio which was nice on a sunny afternoon. Good service though a bit slow at times, a lot of beers to choose from. Food was pretty good too, especially the swordfish taco I had though the jambalaya was a bit ordinary.
(Visited 08/2011): This Yard House location is in the relatively new Town Square mall on the south side off 15/215. Parking is plentiful all around.
The interior is laid out similarly to other Yard House locations, with the circular bar right in the center. The rest of the space features dark wood with booths and tables. TVs are plentiful behind the bar, lending to an upscale sports bar feel.
Yard House’s tap list exceeds 100, with many regional craft brewers represented, such as Firestone Walker (who provides the "Yard House" brand beers), Tenaya Creek, Deschutes and Stone. The bottle selection is pretty much nonexistent.
Service at the bar was friendly as the bartenders use a tag team approach. They were all friendly and kept up with sample requests and refills.
Food at Yard House is consistently good. My colleagues and I shared several appetizers and they were all solid.
Overall you know what you are going to get with Yard House, which is both a positive and a negative. While the beer list is dominated by common and/or bland macros, you can always count on finding something good. Worth a stop for anyone visiting the area.
Read between the lines: this place has real potential. 160 taps with 130 different pours, but no bottles. The beer, some unique brews with plenty of mainstream junk. The place is modern with a large stainless steel bar. The set-up is impressive and the food menu is outstanding. Overall: this would be a great place to watch a game or start your night before hitting up the strip.
Very impressive draught selection. Food was mediocre at best, very bland and a bit pricey for what it was. Staff wasn’t particularly beer knowledgable. The waitress said, "hefe-wise-un". Haha. However, the manager, Anthony, was very accommodating and friendly. Go for the beer, not the food.
