We ate here before attending the Santana and Doobie Brothers concert. The food was excellent and the selection of beers available was awesome. The only reason I didn’t give them 5 stars was because our entree came out before our appetizers. No fault of the server. Just a kitchen snaffu. The server was very apologetic as was the Manager. The manager did not charge us for the appetizers, so all was good.

Service was good, no issues. However, food was trash, we ordered 4 appetizers and 5 meals. Fried chicken, cuban sandwich and orange chicken were over fried, they werent just crispy, they were almost impossible to chew and darkerthanwhat theyre supposed to be. Beer was good, appetizers were below average - overly froed chips and dried out dips, calamari - over fried, dry, disgusting. Only recommend if going out for draft beer, food is crap!

First visit to this location. Arrived with a 6:15 reservation for a party of 4 on a Saturday evening, and we were seated promptly. Service was very slow. It took 25 minutes from the time we placed our order until our food arrived (a salad, a burger, and two orders of tacos). Our server only stopped by our table once during that time, at about the 20 minute mark. We asked about the status of our order, and she said she responded "It should be up soon." By the time it arrived my food (two tacos, rice, and beans) was cool, and looked like it had been sitting for a while. I may give Yard House another try, but the experience on this visit was below expectations.

This was the first (and last) time visiting the Yard House. Attending a Music Hall event, seeking a nearby restaurant. Understood it to be another of many grills with main focus on multiple beer selections. Assuming (dumb me) something similar to Red Door or Martin City Brewery where we visit often, both of which have pretty good grill food and beer selections. WRONG! Service and food were among the worst we have ever had. Fast food drive-thru would have been a better, more tasteful choice at a significantly better price. Pity our downtown convention goers and visitors who choose this as a restaurant of choice. Never again!

Food and service were good. However, it took forever! We showed up and were seated by six. Ordered a hamburger and an appetizer for an entre. First, they messed up the entre and asked to make a change which was great - but was served at 7pm! We told them we were dining before a show and needed to get out - didn't seem like they could help.

I brought my daughter who was turning 24 to a new location, she enjoyed everything. We will be back. Everyone was so nice...The only thing our Appetizers were warm and we had to wait a good long while and the cheese on our spinach and cheese dip was a bit dark on the top. Fix those and the next rating will be 100%

It was a little too dark to read the menus, that even the teenagers had to use their phone light. Too noisey, so had to yell to have a conversation it felt like. Service was great, and food was great.

Food is decent quality and "interesting/creative" at a notch above normal bar food. I just find it really expensive for bar food, good quality or otherwise. It's crazy that a burger costs $15++. Service is "ok" - I have been there MANY times and every time, I have to ask - usually numerous times - for simple items like straws, napkins, etc.
I'll keep going back because it's very convenient to our local theatre and the food really is decent. Happy hour pricing helps make it more affordable.
But, especially with what they charge, I really think service could be a lot better.

If I could give this 0 stars I would. We brought a friend here for her 1st time before our event at the Midland at 730. Had reservations at 6, arrived went to be immediately seated - 2 tables she wanted us to sit at were dirty. Sat down at 6:05, took 20 minutes to get a drink order in, 6:35 we got our cocktails, were told by our server that they are severely understaffed this evening - put in our food order in same conversation. At 7:15 we have not recieved food or the other drink we ordered. I get up to find a manager to tell them our event starts in 15 minutes and we need to know status of our food, he says he will check and asks where we are seated. 10 minutes later at 7:25 he walks out and does not acknowledge our table as he walks right past. Our waitress comes over and we tell her we can't eat because our event starts in 5 minutes- waitress says "yeah we have had several walk outs tonight" We were not presented with a bill and walked out and left. Went to our event hungry and angry. 3 different parties of people in line for the event were discussing similar experiences. Extremely aggravating.

I have been a devoted fan of Yard House for more than a decade having had consistent quality experiences at the locations in San Diego CA, Boston MA, Springfield VA, Honolulu HI, San Antonio TX. This was our first time trying the Kansas City MO. The service, beer selection, and atmosphere were excellent as expected from this chain. The food, unfortunately, tasted previously frozen and not fresh. It was not the worst meal, totally edible, but far below the quality standards held at all the other Yard House locations we have visited. We ordered truffle fries, Korean bbq, tuna roll, and miso glazed sea bass...the same things we always order at Yard House. We were not expecting grisly tuna and freezer burned sea bass. Truffle fries had a freezer flavor to it and the Korean beef did not seem fresh. Perhaps it was an off night or we ordered items not usually ordered at this location. We would return for drinks but not for food. Disappointed in the food but the service was stellar.

I recommend the Yard House to friends. This restaurant exceeded my expectations. Yes, it is a bar with typical bar food, but it is much more than that. This is a very large restaurant. Seating at tables, hi-tops, booths and at the bar is comfortable. In addition to the typical bar food such as burgers and fish & chips, you will find shrimp jambalaya, Asian fusion entrees, Nashville spicy chicken, plus much more.

Great all around service, food and atmosphere. Our reservation was made/accepted for a time before they opened but the manager met us by door and identified me by name and allowed us inside to be seated prior to their opening. The waiter was outstanding and the food matched. We had a great mother's day lunch thanks to the staff at Yard House

The drinks weren’t great but maybe that’s because their main focus is the beer. The food was okay.. I would have sent my over cooked burger back had my server ever stopped by. She only came back way too late to give us our check. The noise level was ridiculous. We had to shout across the table and could still barely hear each other. There are so many gastropubs around, I probably won’t go back to this place
