Our server was a little slow. There were times I thought she had forgotten about us. However, other servers stepped in when they noticed that we were just waiting for the bill. The food was really good. I ordered the "Mother of Dragons" which is listed on the menu using grilled chicken. I wanted a burger instead of chicken. They prepared it for me with no problem. I'm not even sure there was an upcharge. Aside from the service, I was pleased and would recommend The Yard to others.

Great service from the staff at the Yard. Amazing selection of grilled cheese sandwiches - all paired with house made chips and tomato soup. Very nice craft beer selection as well.

We had theater tickets, and our server was mindful of the time without rushing us. It was good to have a reservation, as it was busy, but our table was ready on arrival. Delicious food and drink!

Brunch menu is limited and food is extremely greasy. Eggs and pancakes overcooked almost burnt. I felt sick all day after I barely ate the meal. Friends enjoyed me not so much.

Food was delicious. Creative meals all based around the grilled cheese sandwich. At first we thought it was a pretty strange concept, but it was really yummy. My husband had a "Thanksgiving Dinner" with all the fixings grilled cheese sandwich! Reasonable prices. We had a phenomenal, cheerful, attentive waiter, who was very "on top of his game." I think his name is Michael but can't remember. He is a young man with an Australian accent.

Food and service were great! Atmosphere is good for a couples night out or a group. The tables are a little small. You have to have room to spread the bounty out. Other than that, the entire experience was better than average!

The chicken with the wafffles wasn’t great , over breaded. However , the waffles and pancakes and tots are great. Only thing was we waited an hour for food and no one stopped by to check or apologize until we stopped someone to ask what the wait was. They said the kitchen was behind but tables around us seemed to be served promptly. I’d come again for the food.

Their grilled cheese menu is amazing!!! I had the big che bowski with a sunny side up egg and I literally licked my fingers when I was done. The housemade chips were burnt and not good. I ordered a second grilled cheese... The Mac attack... Took like 30 minutes and it was burnt as well. So I just picked at the macaroni. Tomato soup was awesome! Service was phenomenal!! Other than late second grilled cheese.

It was nice for the most part but if your going to say you’re famous for your grilled cheese there should be an ample amount of cheese on your sandwich. I had the fried green tomato grilled cheese and there was barely any cheese on it, just a very thin layer that was like toasted onto the bread. A bit disappointing. A grilled cheese should have cheese oozing out of it.

Good food, great beer selection, solid service, and a fun atmosphere. Only down side is that’s super loud; it’s hard to carry on a conversation which is the main reason you’d go here to hang with friends.

The food was good and the wait staff was great. We took our son for his "last civilian meal" before he left for basic training. The Yard brought out a free dessert for him and wished him luck which was very kind of them. We all liked our meals and the portions were huge. The mushroom soup was awesome and the four of us couldn't finish it the dessert!

We got there around 12pm and ordered right away because we only have so much time for lunch before we had to be back to work. Normally it’s never an issue here. We put our order in around 12:05 and didn’t get our food till around 12:50pm. So we had to eat what we could and box the rest in order to make it back to work on time. It was kinda unfortunate. But we tried to make the best of it.

Food was ok. We went before a show - so we expected it to be chaotic...but the broken air conditioner and waiter announcing he couldn’t even put our order in the system until the kitchen caught up were red flags. While the Market Square location is cool, it wasn’t worth the aggravation.

The food was pretty good as always but the only downside it the noise level because it’s so loud in there that you can’t here yourself talk or the person your talking too talk. They need to do something about the noise level. They should have made the bar in the back of the restaurant or something because I think that’s where all the noise is coming from but overall the food was pretty good.

Our waitress either forgot to put our order in, or just didn’t pick it up. The tables on either side of us were seated and placed their orders after us, but got their food significantly before we did. For a lunch visit, we were there for over an hour and 15 minutes which is far too long in my opinion

Great happy hour specials! Mac and cheese balls and the poutine were great. Nachos were not amazing, but a large serving size. We were asked to move tables to accommodate a larger party - not a big deal, so we moved. What made this instance really memorable was the manager made our first beverages on the house with us even saying a word. We will come back because of that!
