    Very trendy and fun place. The food was better than expected and the band playing in the background as we ate was nice. Once we finished dinner we simply stepped into the bar area where there was a dance floor the band on stage and a DJ during intermission. It was a one-stop shopping place for a fun night out. We did not use them but they also had arcade machines, a hockey table, and a few other items for fun. There is an outdoor area with games and tables and if it's warm enough they serve and also have a stage with a band playing. Will absolutely go again!!

    Great location, has a few paid to play arcade/punch games on the corners, indoors The live music is very short. The wait to get in Saturday night even with a reservation was 20 minutes. Was a long wait to get food and drinks started. Waitstaff and host was great and friendly but you can tell they are short staffed and need more help! Bar has faster service. Salmon meal, fries and other stuff was quite salty. The chicken sandwich was really really good that id recommend. Outdoor courtyard leads to the boardwalk. They dont do birthday celebrations or anniversaries here if you wanted a cake, cupcake or sparklers, fyi.

    Good food and drinks are to be found at this nice staple located inside The Bally's Hotel And Casino in beautiful downtown Atlantic City. Unfortunately there wasn't any live music on the fine Sunday we were there for dinner. Perhaps on other evenings .

    The hostess was absolutely terrible, made for a negative start. The waitress we had was really good though and the food was very good. Burger could have been cooked slightly longer but overall good.

    We told them we had to leave by 7:30 for a Concert, we had 5:30 reservations and did not get our food until 7:15PM. Other customers left because they were waiting forever. We did not even get comped, they gave us some tater tots while we were waiting.

    Service was horrible they served appetizer along with main course while their fans blew napkins everywhere and was too windy from fans to be eating outside at 6 pm on a comfortable night. When I asked why they would serve the appetizer with my main course steak all they (the manager and waiter) said was because that’s how the kitchen gave it to us we don’t know. Not only did staff not know but they did not care at all. Will never go back very disrespectful and unprofessional.

    The presentation for the drinks were awesome. The drinks itself, were too pricey for a tiny glass filled with juice, ice and very little alcohol. Ask for a table not directly under one of those large ceiling fans or you will freeze. The food was ok, nothing to write home about. The DJ and overall atmosphere was great.

    The food that we had was fabulous. We didn't know that they only serve bar food during the week. We were really looking for a dinner type meal and not just sandwiches. Don't get me wrong the Mahi and Chicken sandwiches were delicious.

    Full dinner menu not available- only on weekends. Bar menu had limited options and most sandwich items have 🌶. We were not told about limited menu until after seated and felt too late to leave. We thought we would patron this new spot, but wish Harry's was back.

    Made reservation online. Arrived at hostess station, asked to be seated outside. This hostess pointed clear across the restaurant and said you have to see her. No bother to walk us across or contact in anyway the outdoor hostess (place was not busy). Arrived at the outside hostess and went through the online reservation, and she pointed at the one that had sent us to her and said you need to see her. I replied we wanted to sit outside and she (other hostess) had told us to see you. This took the outside hostess aback, she fumbled a bit and finally seated our party of 3. Then begun the wait. Waited, and waited, and waited for someone to show-up to at least take drink orders. After at least 20 minutes I walked over to the outside hostess and asked if anyone was going to wait on us. She looked wide eyed and bewildered and said "how many in your party", like this is the very first time she set eyes on me! I said you seated my party 20 minutes ago, is someone going to wait on us. This was clearly way too much for her to comprehend. At this point we walked away and had a fabulous burger and equally fabulous service at Johnny Rockets. One and done will not be back to the Yard.

    We waited for a drink to be ordered for at least 15min. No one came over to ask how our food was, the food runner had no idea where the food was going. We had to read the slip to see if it was ours.

    It was okay food. Service was VERY slow. Featured items on the menu like the stacker came out and barely had any toppings on it. Fun ambiance, better experience if you go for drinks, not sitting down.

    Went in for lunch at 12:30 yesterday, asked how long of a wait there was and the hostess looked at me like she was annoyed and said reservations only. So we went on open table And there were reservations available at 1pm here at the Yard! Now one would have thought the hostess would have just told us that we could do that but no. So we made the 1pm reservation and waited at one of the tables that wasn’t occupied outside along with about 10 total other tables that weren’t being sat at but I get that could because not enough servers. We watched a couple bring outside food and sit at a table next to us right in front of the hostess yet they didn’t mind that but when I asked at 12:45 if we could be seated since we have a reservation she said no we have other people in front of you. She literally made us wait until 1pm on the dot while none of those other ravens that were open were seated, they both had terrible terrible attitudes forwards me. As a business owner I wouldn’t want these two representing my company in any capacity. Their attitudes were just flat out ignorant and I’ve literally never written a review on any site but this is how bad it was.

    Had dinner with a friend and we both thought the place was great. The atmosphere had a very cool vibe. Our server was very attentive. I had the grilled Caesar salad with shrimp and it was delicious. My friend had the blacken Maui and cleaned her plate. They have music after 9:30, but unfortunately we couldn’t stay for it. I would definitely come back.
