    Arrived at the Yard and was the first table to be sat around 5pm. Ordered the chips and dips app but all the cheesy, creamy dips were luke warm/cold. Ordered a bar pie and it was super greasy & didn’t seem fresh at all.

    They seemed very unorganized. It took about 10-15minutes after our reservation time to be seated while there were a number of tables empty. After being seated it was 15 minutes until a server came. We didn’t get our drinks on the table until 50 minutes after our reservation time. Appetizers and entrees came out at the same time. The server was very nice but other than that it was disappointing. Long waits, average food, high price

    Made a reservation for dinner, but when we arrived there was still quite a lengthy wait before our table was ready. I had a race in the morning and was concerned about eating too late, so we browsed the menu while we were waiting so we could order right away when we were seated. Once we were seated, it took awhile before a server made it to our table. Both of us ordered a burger and then, you guessed it, we waited again. It took us over an hour to get our food. The burgers were just average and the noise level was so loud you could barely carry on a conversation. The hostess and our server were pleasant but that was the only positive.

    We had a reservation and almost got sat after people with a half hour later reservation until I chimed in to tell them ours was first. Then we sat and waited over 20 minutes with not one server stopping over or even looking our way. We finally left without even trying the place. While we waiting we saw a man literally follow his server all the way across the restaurant trying to get her attention. She was super rude to him and that sealed the deal to leave. I won’t be back.

    There was a great band playing, the server was nice and the drinks were good but the food is mediocre at best for the price. Most shockingly was we ordered The Stacker and the chips were not only cold but they were topped with cold shredded cheese. We also asked to swap chips and fries on side of the entrees with side salads for an upcharge and was told no, that we would have to order entree salads. Which we did and split BUT they also couldn’t adjust the order not not bring the unwanted fries and chips. So much wasted food. This was the second visit as we gave the terrible service and food the first month it opened the benefit of the doubt but zero improvement for food. There are much better restaurants in AC to spend less money for great food.

    The food is awful I can’t believe they replace Harry’s with this! The draft beer must have been last weeks it was flat I couldn’t even drink it. The chips has zero Seay and tastes like fried grease. The only thing that was decent was a burger. Our waitress was very good that the only thing good to say about this place. Bally’s has went to crap since being bought out.

    The Yard food service was the worst I ever had. Orders were placed and didn't receive them till 55mins later and were incomplete, cold and incorrect. Our Server did the best he could but was overwhelmed. Saff on the floor were 1Server to south side of the restaurant and 1Server to the north side. The bar had 3 servers. KITCHEN was the worst slow as a turtle.

    We started with the clam chowder which had a great presentation, but barely any potatoes or clams in it. Then we hard The Yard Salad, which my husband didn’t like at all. Mine was swimming in dressing! The grilled cheese (?) that was on the plate lacked any flavor, and was just chewy. We also had the cheeseburger egg rolls, which i thought were disgusting! They were nice and crispy on the outside, but just a bunch of mush on the inside. I couldn’t eat them. The food was definitely overpriced and the quality was poor. Our wait staff was friendly, when she could be found! I saw 3 other tables ask another wait staff person for something because she would disappear for 10-15 minutes at a time. I finally stopped a young man who was excellent-wish we would have been at one of his tables! The outdoor area was just more tables, not the cool comfy chairs and couches they advertise in their pictures. This place was definitely a disappointment.

    You had me wait an hour because your online booking service had a time slot available at 4PM, but you are not opened till 5PM. I would advise you to get that fix ASAP.

    First day of restaurant week 2022 and this place did not disappoint. Had the lunch menu consisting of New England clam chowder with bacon, the Philly tailgater roast port sandwich with sharp provolone, broccoli rabe and long hots with fantastic house made potato chips, and a home made chipwich with chocolate sauce. All great. All for $20. Great deal. The Exclusive to Bally's Spellbound mango pale ale was awesome too. I'll be back. A great new addition to Atlantic City

    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.

    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.
