First dining experience here. Sat outside on their patio, great heaters for a cold night. My hubby liked his chicken salad but it was covered with too much fried onions. I had their turkey sandwich which was underwhelming, not tasty at all. I choose vegetables for my side. The veggies looked like what someone would throw out, wilted and looked unappealing. I didn't touch it. Our waitress was sweet but I don't think we will be returning. Very popular beer place if that's what you want.

Good food and I love all the plant-based options. My serving wasn’t too big and yes, it was tasty

Our two food selections rated “good” and “average at best”. Service was friendly ...if a bit hurried. We’ll probably give it another try and hope for a better outcome.

Service was great, and friendly even though they were super full.
But our dinners were so-so. Salmon overcooked, but to their credit... and they would have redone it but we didn’t have time. Egg roll appetizer was a no go. Garlic noodles were cooked perfectly! Just lacked any garlic flavor you expect! Maybe ask for their peanut sauce ( from egg rolls) on the side?

Drinks are always good :-) and a convivial atmosphere, so that’s why you go to the Yard House anyway! Just needs a bit of a reboot on their food.

our waiter Aron was very unsociable, gave limited information and seemed like he was going through the motions. The table next to us had Rayan who seemed super, overheard his description of menu items and suggestions. We wished we could have switched tables or waiters to get him. I'm sure if we did our whole experience would have been better.

Our waitress did an excellent job;however, the restaurant booked a large party that evening which delayed meals for the rest of the patrons, which there were not many of that night, by almost an hour. The manager should have done a better job ensuring the appropriate number of staff where available to accommodate everyone.

We love their Happy Hour ! All the appetizers are large ( enough for 2 ) My favorites are the Fish Tacos vampire style.

I ordered fish tacos and they tasted like they were made out of fish sticks. The Spanish rice was so bad, I didn't eat it. Our waitress told us she had just finished her training at the restaurant and it was very obvious. She was overly friendly but kept forgetting to bring things like more water and a to go box.

This was our first time. We had the double pork chops and chicken schnitzel. The pork chops and schnitzel were moist and tasty. My broccoli was a little undercook. The potato salad was good. Very good value for the food.

The food was not worth dollar amount spent. No one in the group was impressed by the food. I have ate there in the past and a burger which was good. The fish was a little discolored and noodles were really salty. No complaints on the cobb salad.

Nice patio when weather is good. Basic food with good values. Lots of food and beer choices. Can be noisy inside due to size of place and big bar area. Service is awfully slow. Took server 10 minutes to return to even ask for water/ beverage order. Then eternal for her to return and take food order and so on...

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.
