My daughter wanted to celebrate her birthday dinner here. Great selection of appetizers. Good wine and delicious salads. We all left happy. Service just needs to stay on top of filling and bringing water. Otherwise service is great.

You have to try this place. A great place to hear good music, catch the game, and enjoy yourself.

Yard House was a great place to meet with friends to catch up. There's such a variety of great food -- there's something for everyone. I'm also impressed by how easy it is to talk at the table. Even though the restaurant is packed with people and music is playing, there must be very effective acoustic soundproofing because I was able to talk and hear very well. It made for a high energy but very pleasant environment to actually enjoy all the people at our table. Food was excellent, and our server was very good, knowledgeable, helpful, and attentive.

Great menu with lots of choices. if you love beer you will love Yard House. If you don't love beer they do have many nice cocktail options. The food menu has something for everyone. The burgers are really good and the poke nachos are a must try!!!!

Great service but food was just Ok. Fish was over cooked and a bit dry.

Looks nice but hit with cool breeze when groups were coming or going.

A robust menu where all is tasty. The kids menu runs the gamut and there are TVs and beer a plenty. But it’s not a bar and grill and it’s not a sports bar. It’s a neighborhood gem!

We had a fantastic dinner. I had the halibut and my friend had the sea bass it’s somewhat expensive but it was worth the money. I love the drinks. They are very tasty and responsible.

The Yard House an ideal place to hangout with friends in a casual atmosphere. I was also a little surprised at the number of kids that were there (I had 6 pm reservations), but parents and children alike both seem to have a great time. Service was a bit slow and our server forgot one of our appetizers, but it was something that impacted our enjoyment of diner. It's also a great place to have dinner first if you're planning on catching a movie (the Arclight is steps away).

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.

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.

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.
