Great location and service! Sunday brunch entrees were unique. We enjoyed trying something different --and The Yard's attentive and welcoming manager added to the experience!

Bread on grilled cheese was hard as a rock, soup was barely warm enough to eat, and the mac and cheese was just okay. Prices are not cheap so I was completely disappointed in the quality of my food.

It was Sunday Brunch, but it sounded more like Friday night at a club circa 2004, with rap music blasting making it hard to hear and talk to others. The food was disgusting. My meal, consisting of eggs and cheese, was served cold and the chorizo was a disgusting mess of non complementary spices. It is Shadyside, so they overcharge and underserve you for alcohol. If you are a hungover college kid, this place is awesome. If you are middle aged and want to catch up with friends/have a few enjoyable drinks/ambiance, go somewhere else.

I had expected an amazing grilled cheese sandwich. It was good but Texas toast is just blah. The toast was so thick I didn't taste anything else. How about some homemade bread. Mancini's or Mediterra are both local amazing bread bakeries.

Sports bar atmosphere with limited menu but plenty of beers on tap. Happy hour daily as well as daily specials. Tuesdays are 0.40 wings. They were excellent too. Enjoyed the dry rub jerk as well as the garlic parmesan! Ordered the burger which was good too. Service was good!

Love the food wish the bloody Mary bar was freshen up a little. Went for brunch at noon and felt like I was getting the left over bloody Mary garnishes. The bloody Mary bar is excellent though.

Aside from a 40+ minute wait for our food, the food was good. In all fairness, the waitress warned us that there were 2 large parties that came in before us and that the kitchen was backed up horribly. She wasn't kidding.... took forever to get our food.

Had a nice time with our third visit to The Yard, both of our sandwiches were fantastic, the soup was perfect, the chips we did find a bit lackluster though.

Great beer selection.

My main gripe was that the flatbread menu was gone(which was my favorite), but we did see that it was coming back.

Enjoyed the pub pretzels! On a rainy day, having soup with grilled cheese sandwiches before the football game was incredible. I liked the ability to sub out the potato chips for other choices.

Food was fantastic when it finally got to us. We were sat upstairs in the bar area. It wasn’t too busy but somehow took a decent amount of time to get our food.
We ordered an app that didn’t get to us until after our sandwiches arrived. And we were kind of ignored most of the visit.
Also the silverware being at the table is a tad unsanitary to me. I’d rather have rolled up silverware instead of it just being stored there.

Nothing really outstanding about this restaurant except for the noise level which is very loud. Hard to carry on a conversation-- more soundproofing needed. Upstairs is more sports bar and not real inviting. Decent selection of draft beers but only in the basement level; upstairs is bottles. The veggie burger was excellent but the sweet potato fries were dry and not very appetizing. Burger was okay, nothing to write home about. There are a lot of other restaurants in this area that provide better atmosphere and food.

We requested to sit at a regular table, not high top, and we were seated at a high top table right by the entrance and everyone was standing by our table. Our server was the male bartended and he was rude to us from the moment he came over. He also sent the other girl bartender over to check on us so he didn't have to. I could understand if he was busy, but he was standing there watching her the entire time. I was highly disappointed for my first time being there.

We usually love coming to this location. The music was way too loud. There was also a family that was very loud, not in a fun loud, but disturbing loud. We had 3 different servers. We didn’t enjoy our meal because the service was bad. My husband also noted how gross and dirty the floors were. Also, I think the juke box should be off limits during dining hours. There were some foul music being played while we were sitting there trying to enjoy our meal.

Waked right in and was seated. Food was great when it finally came. However it took almost a full hour from the time we ordered until our food came. If I owned the place I would be upset as the name of the game is making money. Can’t make money when patrons stay for well over an hour because the kitchen can’t get the food out timely

This was a first time visit for our group, We came with a group of 5 for brunch for my bachelorette party and everything about our service was wonderful. We all ordered the bottomless mimosas for $15 which was awesome and the food we ordered was so good and it arrived very quickly. But the best part was the service, our server was super attentive and personable. I wish I could remember our servers name because she was so wonderful! She made sure our drinks were never empty and gave great recommendations on food and even made us aware of stuff going on in the city so we didn’t run into any traffic during our weekend activities.

Really good place. Food was great. Got there a bit before noon for lunch. They seemed short staffed. No one to seat us for several minutes. A large party came but only one waiter to handle them plus others. 'still, it's a good place and I'll be going back.

Terrible service! Took us almost an hour to get 3 grilled cheeses. The waiter was friendly but it took way too long. Took a long time to get the check and everything as well. Really disappointing, not worth the price for that experience. It felt like they forgot our order. Won't be returning.

There was a computer malfunction on the evening of our visit. After one hour and asking about the order, the staff apologized and hurried out the food. The issue was poor communication by the waiter who didn't really know what was going on. Room for improvement I guess.
