Brewery
Families and friends of different ages wishing to spend time together are currently required to go to a variety of different places including parks, restaurants, breweries, activity centers and beyond to find elements of fun that each individual can enjoy. Time and finances are limited, and there is not a single community gathering space that brings together quality food, brewery and libations as well as the best age appropriate experiences for everyone to enjoy.

My Yard Live seeks to create a sustainable family-friendly refuge with activities for all ages, live entertainment, quality food, brewery and libations as well as unique leisure games with a focus on building a stronger community.

We will create a paradigm shift in the way that communities interact, play, and bond by inventing an inclusive family and adult friendly gathering space that has the ability to be replicated and in the Western United States and beyond.

We had dinner for 5. The restaurant was challenged to provide a Mac and cheese without the bacon and the spinach for our young guest of 16. The kitchen made the dish twice but included bacon and spinach on the first try and on the second try the continued to add bacon. Finally we gave in and our young man settled for bread pudding for dinner. I don’t understand why excluding these two items was so difficult. The burgers were good but, two tries at the same dish failing both times and a young customer leaving hungry, will be remembered.

I booked an outdoor table through OpenTable. When I arrived, I was told that dining wasn’t allowed outdoors. I had a large party, so I didn’t have the option to change the venue at the last minute.

Very lively atmosphere with live music and arcade area inside. Large eating area includes outside patio where band plays, indoor along large bar, and outdoor area next to the main indoor area. Only complaint is noise level. High metal roof inside really amplifies the music and customer sound.

Our experience started off bad, and never got any better. The host/waiter, a man with light hair, was rude from the moment we got there because we were only 5 minutes late for our reservation. When we asked if we could sit at a table the same size as the one we reserved, in the same outdoor section but one table over, he refused, stating that that table was reserved for a party arriving several hours from now, so he needed it open. We ordered 3 meals and multiple round of drinks. My husband's burger was raw in the middle, the chicken chili was not good (weirdly sweet, and made me not feel well), half of the chips were stale and bendy, and the blackbean burger was not great. After we finished eating, we tried to order another round of drinks and more food, but the waitress told us we needed to leave because they needed our table. She said that our reservation had ended, but that we could go sit somewhere else if we wanted to order more stuff. The reservation time slots were not long enough, especially for karaoke night. I've never been kicked out of a table because a place was overbooked.
They did buy us a beer after we said we were unhappy with being forced out of our table, but that didn't really fix all of the issues.
This was our new weekly hangout, but we won't be back if the food and service are going to be this poor moving forward

It was handled beyond my expectations.

This place is cute, but is definitely a place for people with kids. Don't go if you aren't comfortable with that. People basically let their kids run wild. I went with a group of single friends and we felt like we were at Chuck E Cheese. The live music is nice and the food was good, I'm glad there is a family friendly place for people with kids, just not a great choice for others.

Went to see our friend's band play, reserved a table. Apparently it's a 2 hour limit, and because we got up to play games with our children (we left some items to indicate we would return) we lost our table an hour early and couldn't find seating for the remainder of the evening. Super disappointing and extremely inconvenient. If you want to listen to live music in it's entirety, I recommend making three different reservations so you can just hop tables. It felt like they took our $200 of food and games and kicked us out prematurely.

This is a Happy place for human and dog. It looks like happy friendly people are gathering here. Haha... Strangers do talk to each other, like neighbors. I can see that the servers are doing their best to be helpful and friendly- even the place is so crowded. We were there on Friday from the early evening for relax, good drink/food and music.

The food was good, not great. The price point was on the higher end, especially if you factor in the food quality. The service was great! Every staff member was helpful, speedy and attentive. The seating system is a little wonky, but oh well.
As a mother of 4, my patience for children is saintly. However, kids were running rampant, climbing fences, bumping into tables and people. This should 100% be addressed by the parents/adults in charge, but if/or when that's not happening, staff should intervene for the sake of other patrons.

Nice place to bring the family. The Fish (fish and chips) was overcooked and very greasy. French fries were limp, so just the opposite of the fish. Tarragon flavor was overpowering in the tatar sauce, won't order again. Nachos were great! Burgers were good. Service was great, fast and caring. We were seated near the band and had to leave because it was way too loud for the kids (the bass mostly)

The waiter Brian was nice but may have had to many tables to really be able to help customers. The food overall was not great the ranch dressing had an odd flavor and the house salad had pickled onions which I was not a fan of. Also they were out our of the first 3 beer option.

What a great way to have spent the day of 4th of July! My kids loved the arcade and felt right at home. It was lovely to dine outdoors and listen to the band. The service team was top notch and raced into action when my daughter was stung by a bee. So sweet - the server brought out a first aid spray and bandaid, pulled out the stinger and doctor'd her up. Then brought her out a special lemonade. So very sweet. They had Axe Throwing onsite for the day - just plain fun for everyone in the family. Food was delicious - I had the Ahi Poke appetizer, kids had mac & cheese, and a chicken sandwich. If we lived in the area we'd go back with friends in no time.

Great place to bring the kids. Our daughter is 13, but we wanted to celebrate our anniversary with live music. The salmon dip was to die for, but other than that, the menu choices were surprisingly limited for a dinner menu.

Worst service I have ever experienced at an establishment. I was late due to traffic, had my reserved table given away. Plenty of other tables open, yet I couldn't have any of them. So I made another reservation for 6:45. When my time came the table I was to get had people still sitting at it. I was told to wait while they asked them to leave because their reservation time was up. I waited. No one came to get me. I went back up to check on my reservation and they finally sat me at another table however those other people never had to leave. We had another group at another table as well. We were made to leave because our time was up. We had just received our food but we were offered to go boxes for our food. It was around 8pm. We left our table thinking someone else was there for their reservation at that table - NO, that table sat empty until about 8:45 or 9pm. The manager was rude, waitress didn't check on us much, didn't bring drinks we ordered, it was just bad! Oh and when we left that table that I had reserved at 6:45 with those other people sitting at, they were still there. They didn't have to leave and we're there from the time I got there at 5:30 until after 9pm.
Why were we made to leave and they weren't? We were spending money with our group of 12 and they had 4 people and a young child. We will NEVER return. This was the worst service ever!!!!

Rude staff. Can't have more than 8 in your party or split the bill amongst your party. Had 5 tables open but wouldn't allow more in the party to sit. Threatened to make us leave after all drinks were ordered. One of the waitresses had a kid keep running up to her asking for more coins. Poor service and rude staff. They don't know how to manage.
