Went for Brunch. I am glad I made a reservation. It was a Steelers game weekend. Filled up fast. Excellent food. Large Quantities and good food. Too much to finish. Ordered an extra side of bacon; a lot of strips of bacon! Very good prices. I do wish they had a traditional Brunch/breakfast offering that wasn’t al a carte. Meaning, eggs, bacon, toaste...

The Yard is a fun. The grilled cheese specialities are their signature. Food was good, not fancy but very tasty. When we entered the hostess was very pleasant and sat us at the “VIP” table per my request. Our server John was excellent, very personable. He provide us with recommendations that were spot on. The drinks were good, beer list very vast.

Overall it was good. The sandwich I ordered was delicious. I ordered The Prince. I went with my husband and some family. My husband said his was just alright. We ordered 2 lbs of wings which were very overpriced. They were the small ones. And only 5 or 6 in a lb for $10 each lb. We got the yard flavor and the Thai chili, was actually hard to tell the difference. The service was fine.

Went for brunch. $15 “bottomless” was a great deal. Food came out fast and was delicious! We got the brunch bowl and chicken and waffles. Rich and filling but not greasy. Our waitress was on top of everything and super nice.

Incredible spot in Pitt for funky grilled cheese and good drinks, highly recommend. The place has a fantastic dive bar vibe with exposed brick and TVs to watch the game. The pirogi grilled cheese was delicious, but extremely messy. The traditional tomato soup was a wonderful pairing, even with the funky sandwich. My mixed drink was really good and very unique, but the waiter did not seem to know what was on the drink menu, they must have just updated. The beer menu was extensive and my husband had a great time trying some new brews. Overall the vibe was really friendly and casual, a good place for a date or hanging out with friends. Our waiter was really friendly and super helpful despite the fact he was a little scatterbrained. Would definitely go back!

We arrived at our reservation time at 12:14. The staff seemed perturbed and unorganized. We were sat and then waited a good 10 minutes for our drink order. We promptly also put our food order in to save time. It took over 45 minutes for our food to arrive. No communication from the waitstaff, no apology, no compensation (not something I usually ask for but, the wait was horrible). We finally were able to contact our server and advise we wanted to pay because we needed to be gone before 1:30. She took our cards (again no apology, compensation or explanation on what was going on). We paid and waited another 10 minutes for our food. Our one friend received her lunch (without soup), the other two of us waited another 5 minutes. We finally got out lunch and it appeared the food was not cooked the whole way. I still had shredded cheese unmelted and my bread wasn’t even cooked, fries were underdone in two of our plates. Our other friend hardly had anything on her caprese grilled cheese other than 2 slices of tomato, the thinnest slice (not plural) of cheese and a few sprigs of lettuce. It was a shear disappointment having waited so long for a subpar sandwich. We are hoping it was just an off day but will be sometime before we return.

Our reservation for the hightop table did not go as planned due to some sort of mixup with scheduling. However everyone was very apologetic and couldn't do enough for us in return. Two managers stopped by our table, one with a complimentary app card, which we graciously accepted. Overall a great experience! Great food , Great people.... what more could you ask for.

Delicious food, well priced, and servers did an amazing job serving our very large party! My only complaint would be the loud volume of the music inside a crowded dining room.

The food was great, and the atmosphere was pleasant. We went for a family farewell lunch for my brother and his fiancee who were moving across the country and we all enjoyed the meal and service! From 3 years old to 51! I would recommend this place to friends and family. Our server was great as well.

The atmosphere was so loud that you couldn't carry on a conversation with the person or persons in your party. The food wasn't as described in the menu. Our grilled cheese sandwiches were NOT grilled so the bread was soggy, and several key ingredients were missing from one of our sandwiches. When we asked our server about the missing ingredients, he simply brought them on a plate and told us to put them on the sandwich ourselves. Then our server brought us the wrong bill, and we had to bring it to his attention. Very disappointing experience.
