Food was very good with a fine variety of items. Cooked to perfection with a reasonable lunch price.

New Stockyard - Much Improved!
Great neighborhood place, even greater with terrific food. Had great steaks, great service and it's even on Opentable now!
Definitely worth a visit!

Mother's Day Eve
Took the family out for Mother's Day dinner the night before due to work schedule. Very easy navigation on website to reservations and was able to get one within the 1/2 hour. Waited all of 10 mins for a table after arrival even though place was busy. Very helpful hostess got us to a great booth. Our server was AWESOME! Very patient with my kids and was able to answer all of our questions that we had. Food was great and the portions were huge. Definitely will be coming back soon.

Great dining experience
The setting was perfect for our special occasion with the semi private room and a staff that accommodated our requests.
Everyone was attentive and the food was perfect.
Perhaps one of the most notable qualities that we have noticed during our dining experiences at the Stockyard is that the entire staff knows the importance of costumer relations and how to make each quest feel special.
I would recommend the Stockyard for anything from a romantic dinner to a group celebration.

Saturday Night Dinner
We always go out for dinner on Saturday nights, and The Stockyard is one of our favorite restaurants. We are delgihted that it has reopened, and find the food better than ever! It is one of the top restaurants on our list. We are particularly pleased with the new Opm Table policy, which assures us of good seating in the reserved section. The service we had was outstanding; the waitress was very knowledgable, and was very willing to accept our special requests. The homemade creme brulee dessert was ordered was one of the best creme brulee desserts we have had. We look forward to our next meal at The Stockyard!

I have been three times since
I have been three times since the Stockyard reopened. The service is attentive and the food is excellent. I had the tuna tartare app which was delicious and my husband had the surf and turf, also very good. They have great spaces for small groups, which are semi private, allowing you to talk and be together while still enjoying the atmosphere of the restaurant.

Great place and friendly atmosphere
My two girlfriends and I went there for dinner before a Boston show. Our waitress was friendly, very attentive, and funny. We had a great experience and would go back there again. Highly recommend the food and service.

The New Stockyard
After being a neighborhood favorite for years, Stockyard sadly closed. After many months, it is open again, under new management and with a new menu - though much of the interior looks the same. Clearly the new owners are into service. We were met and greeted by several people, had extremely attentive servers, and in general felt quite 'welcomed.'
The food was also good - somewhat better than the old Stockyard in fact. This is a good addition to our local eating scene.
6/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
All the food was very good and served very promptly. Huge side dishes, enough for 3 people. Desserts were great! Rolls out of this world, unique.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
Our family of 5 had a great experience at the Stockyard. The food portions were generous and good. The service was friendly and we didn't feel abandoned, as sometimes happens after the dinner is delivered.
6/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great food. Really noisy
We had a great dinner. Waiter was difficult to understand. Food was very good. The bar is loud and it's hard to hear if you are in a group. We got seated outside of the bar which was better for noise level. Would go back again as staff was good and food was better than expected.

Best prime rib I've ever had
The title says it all. Went there overwhelmed with the Ron Swanson style menu, and finally "settled" on the prime rib - you can't articulate that kind of flavor.
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent experience. Everything
Excellent experience. Everything was delicious and our server was the best!
6/28/2013 4:00:00 PM
Even better after the renovations
Food was great, steaks were perfect, service was phenomenal. What's not to like?
6/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
First time going to this old time restaurant. Won't be the last! Food was great! I had the prime rib and it was so tender! The sides were crazy large and just as well prepared. The booths give you just enough privacy but still great for people watching. Highly recommended!!!
7/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
Steak not the best!
Giving the food a "good" rating as the steak entree was tough. Rest of the meal was very good.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
A good time was had by all
We loved the atmosphere and the white Sangria was perfect for a very hot evening. I enjoyed the Glazed Salmon and it was cooked exactly to my specifications. Unfortunately the risotto had a weird texture and was inedible. The gentlemen at our table had steak which was average but enjoyable and one had onion rings that were perfect and crisp. The service was spot on and the wine list good. One gentleman was looking for Hanger 1 Vodka which they didn't have (but not many restaurants do).
We would all recommend Stockyard and we will absolutely come back when in the area. We wouldn't however, drive from Manchaster, NH to Brighton to come here.
7/6/2013 12:00:00 AM
Awesome food & service
Steak was cooked to perfection and the baked potato was outstanding.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
A positive night out
Moderately pricey (dinner was $200 for 3 before tip), but well worth it. We got appetizers (clams on the half shell, fresh & clean). For dinner prime rib, excellently cooked, à la carte, grilled asparagus & mushroom risotto made an excellent accompaniment; baby back ribs, delicious but could have been more tender with crisp hot onion rings; and lobster pie, tender & packed with lobster. For desert, cheese cake with fresh strawberries, crème brûlée, & blueberry pie. And drinks.
Soft jazz radio played in the background. The bar appears to be sports TV centric, which probably appeals more to some and a good way to get them out of the house to go to dinner. You could not have asked for better service as our waitress was prompt and attentive.
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, Great atmosphere, Friendly staff.... Can't wait to go back.
8/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
I had the salmon and it was amazing. Next time I dine at Stockyard I will have a steak.

Took 6 people for a birthday
Took 6 people for a birthday dinner. Food was cooked to order and very good. The service(Kathleen) was even better. The ambience was friendly and comfortable. Only glitch was the front desk didn't communicate with our waitress that I had pre-ordered some desserts to be sent to the table. But she remedied that quickly. Lovely time.
8/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Food was delicious steak tips melted in you're mouth and could be cut with a butter knife. Pork chop was so tasty. Baked potatoes was Hugh!!! Creme Brûlée was to die for !!
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
A little pricey
The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere was lovely, but the prices were a little on the high side. Seven adults (two didn't drink and five had beer/wine) ran up a bill of $300 before tip. I think the 8 oz. filet was $36 and the sides are ala carte.

New and Improved Stockyard
My husband and I were so glad we finally made our back to the Stockyard. I will just be tepeating what others have said before, the food (chopped wedge salad, lobster roll, filet mignon and NY Cheesecake.) Our server, Brandon was friendly, knowledgable and attentive. I will note, our neighboring table did have to wait 15 minutes before they even got their drink order in, they had a different server, felt badly for them as they arrived well us. If you're thinking of trying out the Stockyard, give it a shot. Lastly, the restaurant has a huge private lot, no worries about street or garage parking.
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
a redone classic
the stockyards renovation seems as though they were done mainly to the menu. the prices have gone up but so has the quality. the price point makes it more in the category of special occasion place or when your on an expense account. was there for a business dinner and everyone was very happy. only nagative comments was on the thickness of the ribeye. they also flood the plate with au jus which bothered a couple of my colleagues and was easily and quickly rectified by the server overall a very good experience with excellent team service.
8/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Lively restaurant with very large bar in center. Sat in a large, roomy booth. Our waiter, Adam, was very attentive. We had flatbread with cheese, figs, onions. It was delicious. Also got charcuterie board fun and tasty for our group of four to share. Had special lobster pie which is 8 delicious ounces of lobster meat and bread crumbs, what could be bad? The steaks, both skirt and strip were enjoyed by all. We shared blueberry pie and key lime both also very good. It was a fun place, lots of yummy food. Will definitely go back when we are in town. If you are looking for quiet and romantic this may not be the place but if you want a place with high energy and delicious food, you've found it at The Stockyard.

The ribs were fall off the
The ribs were fall off the bone fantastic. I have never had ribs that melted off the bone that well and were so flavorful. I look forward to going back to get another rack. Also one of the best Clam Chowder I have had in a long while.
9/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
A bit pricey, but the food
A bit pricey, but the food is very good. The only disappointment was, although very tender and very good, there were very few steak tips on the plate. The mashed potatoes made up most of the meal.
9/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
The "facelift" is a success!
Stockyard reopened recently after renovation and change of management. The food is better than ever, and the prices are still reasonable (though a bit higher than they were). I've now had 2 delicious lunches and a dinner here, with great service and delicious food. Highly recommended!
9/11/2013 5:00:00 PM
We had seen the stockyard off of the highway for many years and this was our first experience. We had a delicious dinner and the service was excellent, very friendly and kind. My husband had the pork chop, which came with Mac and cheese which was delicious! The porkchop and sauce was very tasty too. My son had the prime rib, which also looked delicious. I think it should have come with a side like potatoes. You should not have to order a side when you pay that price. I had the scallops with frisee, which was good and big enough as a meal. Overall, it was a great restaurant and I would highly recommend it.
9/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasantly surprised to find this reopened gem. Several us had visited the old restaurant and were disppointed that it closed but the newer version did not disappoint. Everyone in our party was quite satisfied. Loved the baby back ribs! Glad to see you back!

The Re-opened Stockyard
The re-opened Stockyard is a wonderful venue for a special occasion. My family took me for my birthday. However, the a la carte menu prices are a bit high. It has been my experience (I'm 73) that many restauranteurs want to become wealthy and lose repeat customers because of their high prices.
9/16/2013 12:00:00 AM
This is the Stockyard as it
This is the Stockyard as it should be, fab food and great atmosphere. I HIGHLY recommend the beef toronados
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Success for our meeting! The atmosphere, food choices and delivery along with parking and accessibility to all was perfect. Finding locations for lunch meeting are tricky, but Stockyard ended up to be just what we were looking for, noise level, light and courteous staff. Thank you Stockyard you will see us again.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
The New Stockyard is back
The Stockyard used to always be a place you could generally rely on - not exciting, but great food and wouldn't let you down. The recent renovation and change of management has re-invigorated the place. The food was excellent, the specials interesting, and the service was top notch. It's a bit more expensive than it used to be, what isn't - but all in all a great place for a special meal. Noise level high than I'd like, so more of an expanded bar and pub setting than a romantic one - but still, I will be back
9/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service and delicious
Great service and delicious food. I would highly recommend.

Good game ender!
Great place to finish watching BC games. TVs are huge and there is a great view from every table. Sat in the restaurant area and didn't miss a play. Food is outstanding. Did not have to deal with the BC crowds at game end but still felt like we were in the action. Thank you, Stockyard. You are are new place to watch the game (maybe we don't even need tickets!)
9/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
Pleasant dining experience
This was our first visit to the Stockyard. It was recommended for the lobster pie. We were very happy with the food. The lobster pie was great and the steaks were excellent. Our server, Heather, was awesome. She was attentive, courteous and very friendly. Her attention level and personality made our dining a very pleasant experience. We have reserved for our anniversary and have requested she be our server.
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
Convenient and Nice
I chose The Stockyard because my parents wanted a parking lot - they dislike garages and street parking which can be hard to find in Boston. The Stockyard was convenient and they let us sit at a booth even though there were 5 of us. My parents wanted soft seats. I sat on a chair at the end. The food was good - not outstanding but good - service was prompt and attentive. I would definitely come back here.
10/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
We had a extremely positive dining experience at the Stockyard this past Saturday evening. The food was delicious, cooked to perfection.
Our server, Leah was outstnding. She was nice, professional and attentive. In addition, the two bus boys were also very nice and attentive.
Overall it was a great dining experience and we are looking forard to going back in the future.

The food was fabulous! I had
The food was fabulous! I had the beef short ribs, which needed no knife to cut. Brussel sprouts roasted to perfection and the mushroom risotto had just the right amount of creaminess! The fried calamari was fried just right, not a heavy fried feel to it. My girl friend said her prime rib was great except they used shaved horse radish, instead of the paste form. We are already planning our next visit.
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Sunday lunch here is great
We like a place that offers a brunch and lunch menu on Sundays. My steak tips were melt in your mouth good -- the rolls were warm -- the service was great. We enjoyed the ambiance so much that we moved from the booth to the bar to have another drink and watch some football, with a view of the fireplace.
11/2/2013 5:00:00 PM
Great dining experience
The Stockyard is all new and fantastic. Our waitress was Peggy and I recommend asking for her when you go in. The GM was very proactive and stopped by all the tables. The food was great. I had steak tip that were very tender and cooked to order. My wife had the beef short ribs and needless to say there were none left at the end of the meal. The portions were ample.

This isn't your parents Stockyard!
My niece wanted a steak dinner for her birthday and wanted the family to get together to celebrate - there were 15 of us. We were all coming in from different suburbs, and no one wanted to deal with parking in Boston. The Stockyard was suggested and everyone sighed - "really" because we all remembered it to be old, stale, and dated, so we weren't really big on the idea, but thought we would take a chance ... WOW, what a difference! The updated Stockyard still has the solid wood/steakhouse feeling but the decor is updated and the food, especially the steaks were perfect. We were told that a crew from Abe and Louis journeyed out to Brighton after the demise of the Sarkis group - And yeah! Time to start new memories at the 2013+ Stockyard!
11/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
They bent over back words to make our evening great!!
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Have visited this restaurant on two occasions and have been pleasantly surprised that the food and staff are super. The lobster pie and the steaks are cooked to perfection and are reasonably priced. The quality is excellent. On both occasions we have had a waitress who was professional, courteous, friendly, efficient and uplifting.

Great for Thanksgiving Dinner
My husband, sister, brother-in-law and I went, planning on regular menu fare. Once the Thanksgiving special was explained my husband and brother-in-law chose it. They both got to have their favorite - dark meat - and said the Turkey was outstanding as well as the sides - mashed potatoes, cranberry sauce, carrots. They thoroughly enjoyed it. My sister and I went for the Stockyard Salad which we love, and a small appetizer. Perfect for those who love big Thanksgiving meals, and those who don't!
