We were in Pittsburgh to see a play and this restaurant was close to our hotel and the theater. It was really just ok bar food. Pretty loud venue. But our server was nice and attentive, and the service was fast.

The Yard is a typical pub with a flare for grilled cheese and unique burgers. The restaurant was busy and energetic, but had a good vibe. The waitstaff was very attentive and thorough. Food "flew" from the kitchen so the wait for your meal was not long at all. I definitely recommend a reservation because the place was packed and tables were turned quickly!

Multiple young, untrained servers kept trying to clear our "plates" while we were eating. (There aren't plates, only food sitting directly on trays.) Food quality poor. Soup that comes standard is a tiny "tasting" size serving and poor quality. Kitchen refused to cut our grilled cheese sandwiches in half because "if we do it for you, we have to do it for everyone". Drinks and water not refilled, but refill offered after we paid the bill. This is a bar that caters to drinkers who don't notice the poor food quality and marginal service.

Superbowl Sunday 2020. Surprised at how NOT packed it was, but overall very good service and food was decent, albeit not very big portions. Of course first draft beer choice had just run out, but the swap out was just as good.

The lettuce in my salad smelled like preservatives/lettuce at a fast food place. Service was average. The noise level is high and a baby was seated right behind me. This spot is ok with friends, but I do not recommend it for a business lunch.

We eat here all the time. Food very consistently good, servers always polite. A little on the higher end of price spectrum but a small price to pay for consistency

I absolutely , positively, do not enjoy writing bad reviews. The Yard in Market Square is a very cool place to go. I think they just had an off night in the kitchen the night we went. Two college buddies and myself went to the Steeler game on 12/15/2019 and this was a rare occasion where all three of us, who are dads, got to go out and enjoy ourselves. Let me just say everything was awesome, except the food. We started off with some apps, wings and loaded waffle fries and man, the wings were literally burnt so bad we felt like Clark Griswald eating the burnt turkey in Christmas Vacation. The waffle fries were such a mess too. We are three very mild manners guys who never complain abut we politely asked the waitress to look at the wings and get her opinion on them and she could not believe how bad they looked and took them back and got us a new order of wings which were much better. The manager came up to us and was so nice and handled everything the right way. Our entrees were under cooked as well but we didn't raise a stink about it cause we were loving the drinks!! So, great atmosphere, Great service but food is below average..... Sorry The Yard

It was my first time there, I thought the menu had an extensive selection and prices were reasonable. I’m not a Tomato Soup fan but I did enjoy that accompaniment to my sandwich. I also liked that I could substitute a salad for chips. Will dine there again.

Cool spot to eat. Convenient to theater district.
Grilled cheeses were amazing along with the speciality drinks. Worth upgrading for the sweet potato fries with the dipping sauce.

Would go back again.

The atmosphere was a little loud, but what you would expect for a bar on a Friday night. Food was delicious and came out quickly, the table service was a little slow comparatively. Drink specials were good as well as the beer selection - something for everyone. I would definitely go back again.

Our server was perfectly accommodating for party with a high chair. She smartly directed me to the back corner during a busy business lunch time. My 2yo grandson had a grand experience with that ooey-gooey dessert. Food was fast, hot and tasty as well. So pleased!
