Overall the experience was just "okay". The onion ring tower came out cold, 2 of the group's entrees arrived cold as well. The food tasted good, but it seemed like with the busyness of a Saturday night that the service took a little hit.

This is our favorite neighborhood restaurant. We can park in the garage next
to the restaurant for a token rate. The food is always good and waiters
friendly.

Huge menu of generic bar food, the service was terrible. Food came before drinks, main entrees came before apps. Every member of the staff seemed to have no idea what was going on and it was hardly busy. Food was surprisingly decent but the service terrible so cannot recommend going back.

Loved the Poke bowl! It had all my favorite things in one bowl. They weren't stingy with the masago and left off sesame seeds due to a dietary restriction.

Fun place to go to eat and drink. The jambalaya is my very favorite and comes in two portion sizes. So good!!!! If you are a beer lover you will be very happy there as they have over 100 beers. Sandwiches are good too. Large menu with options for everyone.

Disappointing visit. Went before a movie so had about 75 mins to eat. Service was very slow but in server's defense, we did not initially tell her we had a movie to go to. Everything from drinks to appetizers to entrees took a long time with us usually checking on the order each time. We ended up saying we only had about 15 mins to get our entrees and eat them then they came within 3-4 mins. But since she didn't write down the order, I didn't get my soup. When I reminded her, she got it quickly and didn't charge me for it. Good thing, as the chicken tortilla soup was nasty. I ate only one bite. Not sure if that is how it was supposed to taste or if it was made wrong, but it was not good at all. Not a good experience and next time we go to a movie at New City, we will prob go to one of the other restaurants in the complex. We do like the music, atmosphere, and the beer list at Yard House though. Too bad there are not better wine by the glass options or food. But if you are looking for beer and bar food, this is prob a good option. I don't really like bar food though.

I normally have a great experience here, but this time the service was terrible. The server was inattentive and extremely slow. We literally had to chase her down to get what we needed. And on top of that, she was unapologetic for it. She almost seemed irritated with us for being irritated!

This won’t keep us from going back, but I will hope that we don’t have this server again.

Went here for lunch before a play at the Royal George. Had the feel of a typical, modern bar. Our waitress was friendly and attentive. Of our two dishes, one was outstanding (Nashville Hot Chicken) and the other just ok (grilled chicken and avacado). The beer list was extensive and a big feature of the place. A touch on the expensive side, but not overly so. I'd recommend it as a nice place for good service and a good meal -- especially the Nashville hot chicken!

Service as AWFUL on Friday 11/23. We had a reservation for a party on 6. Server took our drinks orders for some beemers, wine and a Margarita. 25 Minutes later we still did not have our drinks, so flagged down our server to inquire, he said he would go check on them. 10 minutes later he returned with our drinks. When the food arrived, 45 min after ordering, the soup, 2 Chicken Tortilla and 2 Tomato were cold and had to be sent back. Sliders were also cold. The back half of the restaurant was closed off and empty so not sure what was going on....

I usually don’t write reviews like this however our recent experience was rather poor. We’ve been to several YardHouse restaurants in CA with no issues. This most recent visit at the Lincoln Park location in Chicago, we were a party of four. First was a Mac and cheese dinner entree with a long dark hair in the food right. We didn’t make a big deal about it other than request it be replaced, which they did. The manager also kindly removed the charge from our bill which was appreciated. My daughter ordered a burger cooked to medium and she got it closer to rare. My wife ordered a margarita pizza that she said was tasteless and I ordered the Mediterranean salmon which was over cooked and dry. We didn’t make an issue out of the food other than noted how poor the whole meal was. Certainly didn’t take out our displeasure with the waitress who was very good as I left a 30% tip for her. Not sure we’ll be back to the Lincoln Park location anytime soon.

I return to this Yard House restaurant quite often. It's our usual go-to before a movie at the theater next door. This particular visit was not up to the usual experience. It was extremely loud! I use an app for measuring and it was 87 decibels which is damaging! Our server was friendly and got our order right, but it took over 25 minutes for our food to come to the table, and that was after we got the attention of our server. To their credit, a manager came to our table to ask if everything was ok, and we told him we were unhappy about the length of time it took to get our food. Instantly, he had the food brought to our table. This tells me it was ready, but our server was too busy to keep up. I think the restaurant is great. The food is always delicious. It was a very busy Saturday evening. I think a few more servers on weekend nights might be helpful.

Great food, great service, friendly staff. Great place to go whether you just want a little snack or a full meal. They have a really good selection of appetizer dishes for the small appetite or for starters and plenty of choices for a full meal including a big selection of craft beers and cool cocktails to go with whatever you pick. My wife & I go there often and have never been disappointed.
