The service was decent and the atmosphere was great. We were seated at a nice booth in the back and could watch plenty of the TVs. Our server was a little slow, especially since there weren’t many tables at all, but he was polite and the food was good so I cannot complain too much.

Always have a great time at the Yard house! The lamb burger is my favorite and they have the best pretzel (huge). My friend loved the braised short rib ravioli and the cocktails were outstanding! Our only down side was two fold: the bread pudding was "disgusting " and our server had an attitude when we sent it back and requested another dessert. Hint to waiters... dont get an attitude bc your tips are more per hr than your hourly wage. Thus, her tip was minuscule bc of her attitude. Other than that.... great spot!

So we were seated in a section that apparently wasn’t open. We waited about ten minutes (our whole party wasn’t there yet) and the manager came over an apologized for the wait and bought the adults a drink and appetizers. This was very unexpected. We had a diverse group of eaters and the menu fit everyone (great vegetarian options). The tomato basil soup is the best anywhere and a great beer selection. They topped off the meal and service with free desserts for the moms at the table on mother’s day! Will definitely be back and highly recommend!

It was VERY LOUD!!! More than a local dive bar with a local team on the TVs. Piped in music was crazy loud and people had to shout across the table. Food was good but not great. OK for a VERY casual bite to eat but not for a meeting of any kind.

The only thing worse than our service was our food. We frequently tried to flag down our server, but she walked by without even looking or she would have seen us waving our arms at her. The noise was so loud that we couldn't hear each other without yelling. Each of us ordered different entrees, but all four of us had food that was awful. The server recommended a very expensive dish that turned out to be terrible. We felt that she probably did this to increase the amount of bill, thus increasing the amount of the tip. We ordered the queso appetizer, and received no more than a handful of chips for 4 people. We thought that a mistake had been made because it was such a small amount. However, an employee other than our server brought it to our table so we couldn't really ask if this was a mistake. Service was very slow, and it took at least 20 minutes to just get the two beers that we ordered. We would never go here again.

This was my 2nd visit to the Yard House, I was expecting a much better experience. Unfortunately, I was disappointed once again. The food wad mediocre. I ordered the fish tacos and I don't believe that I every tasted the actual fish...I believe it was hidden somewhere in between the cabbage and tomatoes. Also the rice was very hard and tasteless. The only thing that was semi-ok was the pinto beans. Otherwise, it was not a very tasty meal. Wouldn't recommend it again.

The food was amazing for both my husband and I. They have a wide variety of food and drink selections, as well as big gluten free menu, which was a bonus for me because all my meals have to be gluten free. They also have a selection of gluten free beer, which I rarely find at most establishments. I would definitely recommend the Yard house in Indianapolis!!!

Good as usual but even though we had a reservation at 6:30 and arrived 10 minutes prior, we waited until 645 to be seated and had to ask the hostess about getting our table.

Arrival: We arrived early to the area but it took over a half hour to locate a parking spot in the area so some of our group was late while others were on time. We had requested a regular height table with chairs because there are two people in our group who have knee and hip problems, but we were first taken to a booth near the kitchen doors. When we reminded our request we were taken to a high top table. Again asked, and were kind of grudgingly placed at a regular table.

Ambience: Typical sports pub. Lots of tvs, loud, energetic.

Server: Our server was the best part of the evening! She was knowledgeable about both the food and beverage menus, efficient and accurate.

Food: My meal, the small portion skirt steak, was delicious and a great value. I was disappointed to learn after the meal that those who selected burgers found them to be uninspired and pretty average, nothing for bragging rights. So the foods ranged from pretty terrific to meh with the tacos and dinners better than the burgers.

Beverages: An astounding number of beers, ales and ciders on tap. Everyone found something to enjoy.

So glad I made a reservation. Guests coming in to be seated were told they would need to wait 1.5+ hours. Similar to that of a VIP experience, I simply gave my name and was immediately directed to a table with my companion. From that time on, the service was fine, but nothing special. The server took out order and brought, food. No going above and beyond. No chit chat. It was even a little awkward because of this. The door was decent, but again, nothing amazing. Overall, it was an enjoyable evening, but for a truly memorable one, service will need some improvements.
