About

The Brick Yard is a relaxed and casual restaurant and bar serving American comfort food. The style of the restaurant is laid back with walk-up seating and all the neighborhood charm of a local favorite. The decor is simple yet welcoming, red bricks walls and exposed ductwork ceilings make for the kind of low-key ambiance that welcome all that enter the Brick Yard doors.

The menu at The Brick Yard is primarily American comfort food. The food options are relatively small, with no dedicated appetizer and entree portion. The focus here is on the fried chicken, which can be ordered as grilled strips, fried strips, or chicken wings in batches of six or twelve. These chicken baskets can be either served with or tossed in your choice of Brick Yard sauces including sweet teriyaki, BBQ, original hot or habanera fire.

Took the family here for a quick bite before the fireworks....very limited menu, but everything we ordered was well made and nicely presented. Salads were fresh, pork sliders were tasty and burger was huge. Service was helpful and friendly.

Bar staff is excellent. Drinks were great!

Although they are technically a sports bar, the decor is more urban rustic than big screen tacky, which makes it a nice choice.

What was once a sports bar has now really become a restaurant! A chef and sous chef combo have taken spins on some of my favorite dishes with the same flair you would expect in the city by the bay.

Try it!

Had brunch at Brick Yard while visiting San Francisco. It was a great experience! Delicious brunch, fun cocktails, bottom-less mimosas, and great service! Met some cool people too.

More of a bar than a restaurant. We went on a Saturday night and it was pretty empty. Food was yummy. Nothing special, just standard bar food, but nonetheless good. Service was inattentive, but fine. If you're looking for a low key place to grab a drink, this place is fitting.

Brunch menu limited. Food is horrible. Add some basic items. The mega egg sausage biscuit is awful

Food was good quality but served cold. Service was mediocre - had to keep asking for utensils, salt and pepper, etc.

Great service by the manager/hostess. Our first server was pretty flakey but our second was on point. Great food and awesome location to watch the games.

if you want a sports bar and drink beer and have no conversation except for yelling at the screen then this place is for you, the sound was so deafening I could barely hold a conversation. The kitchen was closed so they used the next door? Only had a toaster oven? Waited over an hour for a veggie wrap and a salad?

A very loud and boisterous sports bar that was filled with UCLA fans watching the UCLA-USC game. A contingent of USC fans were also there and everyone got along fine. With all the people standing, it was hard to see the TVs when sitting at a table. Good time anyway!

On game day, it's a no brainer. There's no where better in the city. Recently though they got an Executie chef that changed the game on their food. 4 stars on Yelp for a reason. Check them out on a NON game day and enjoy some amazing eats.

We booked on a Tuesday, which ended up being Trivia night. The bar was packed and we showed up a little late, but they still had a table saved for us. They also gave us complimentary fries for booking on Open Table. The staff was a little slow to get going because it was so busy, but once we got our drink orders in it was great. I ordered the grilled chicken and veggies and it was delicious.

Gary, Executive Chef, is beyond talented in every creation he presents to his guests. We had made reservations to try it out and the night we went happened to be a night that they had a tasting menu with New Belgium beer. Gary paired a 5 course meal that complemented the beer perfectly. Between the braised pork belly, heirloom and cucumber bruschetta, and scicilian meatballs...we were in food heaven. My boyfriend ordered a burger off the menu that came with "not fries" which we are both still dreaming about. They are sliced purple potatoes with parmasan and truffle...and everything you want to complement one of the best burgers we have ever had...(the bun was brushed with duck fat...TO DIE FOR!)

What I like about the Brickyard is they show sporting events with the volume up so you can hear the commentators. Some sports bars have the tv on, and then music in the background - so it's just not as involving if you want to watch sports. It was great in this way. Also there were many screens. I do wish they had more larger screens that you can see from a variety of views and tables - but overall, it's one of the nicest sports bars I've been to in the city - probably the nicest if you just want to watch a sporting event. I would like to go back for another event soon.
