When the craft beer revolution began nearly 20 years ago, Yard House was there pioneering the way. Taking its vast experience with brews and breweries and coupling it with a kitchen that prepares over 100 items from scratch daily, Yard House has become a modern public house where food and beer lovers unite.

First time here. Food was great but they definitely don’t know what Medium means when cooking a steak. It was rare to the point the plate was soak in bloody juices. Seriously didn’t even look cooked except for the outside. I know they knew I asked for Medium because the stick that came with the steak specifically stated medium.

Waitress was great but I couldn’t find her to get the steak taken back to be cooked longer. Someone else came at the end but didn’t ask how everything was. Instead she said can I take your plates? Didn’t give me enough time to say so
Ethnic before she snatched it and left.

Will return but will now know to state well done so my steak will come out medium.

We were here celebrating two birthdays. No one had dined her before. We sat outside. The service outstanding!!! Taylor is a gem. She is fantastic. Personable, friendly, attentive all without being overbearing. Because of her we will be back and ask to sit at her station. The food was okay. Nothing exceptional. We had both types of shrimp tacos, they were good and tasty. One very spicy. If you don’t want deep fried you have to task. Their version of Baja street tacos is fried. The salad was the smaller seared ahi. Good quality ahi heavily spiced, tasty dressing with cabbage, lettuce and wontons. Rather plain.

I WISH I remembered our server's name. He was friendly and knowledgeable. We were from out of state and he was happy to recommend items for appetizers. The man knew what he was talking about, the poke nachos were SPECTACULAR. He went above and beyond to assist with our 5 year old son's dietary restrictions. It was an absolutely wonderful experience and the next time we are in California, specifically the Beach areas, we will go to this Yard House again. Thank you!

Our server, Susie did a fantastic job! Super friendly and efficient. Food was great - good value for the price. I know it’s a sports bar, but the music was just a bit too loud. I like to be able to hear my dining companions.

Love eating at Yard House - food is great, drink selection is huge, and ambiance is perfect for casual outings with fam and friends. If they could change one thing, i would suggest they look into a new fry recipe. They probably have my least favorite fry out of any restaurant, which is surprising since nearly everything else they serve is delicious. Even tried their truffle fries, hoping that would help, but it was the same underwhelming fry, sitting in a soaking bowl of oil with parm on top. Not great.
