I would definitely recommend Yard House to anyone that would like really good food for a pretty good price. The restaurant itself was a little loud so I wouldn’t go there for an intimate date. We sat at a booth but I noticed large tables for bigger parties. Our waiter was nice, but forgot a few side items. All in all it was a fun night!

We were seated right away with our reservation and they took into consideration my request for a quiet place so we could talk with our friends. We had a spot upstairs in a huge booth and it was perfect for conversation. Great waitress and food!

I appreciated that any available staff delivered our food when our server was busy helping others. I always like the variety of food options on the menu. My husband loved his street tacos and my favorite is always the red quinoa salad.

Always an easy, but good food visit. I would always recommend going there, especially if you are looking to watch sports, or just get out and start the evening with a good meal. Beer and cocktail options also a great add.

I’ve been to the yard house (different locations) plenty of times. For the price, our food was horrendous. My GF ordered the vodka shrimp pasta and it was terrible. Bland and over saturated in butter and cream. Then we decided to order a plain cheese pizza. How can you mess that up right?
It was absolute slop. Our pizza came out and it looked as if they threw it in the oven and cranked the heat all the way up so we didn’t have to wait as long. It was burnt on the edges and borderline raw in the middle. (Pictured)
The only saving grace of this meal was our waitresses. She was very apologetic and made us feel better. We will never come back.

This was my first time at Yard House but it won't be my last. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. Our server was attentive and knowledgeable. A great place for lunch during the work-day. I'd like to try dinner there sometime.

Our waitress was personable and knew the menu, recommended we come back for Happy Hour for 1/2 price nachos which we are going to try to do. That day for lunch I had the ginger salmon with wasabi mashed potatoes which I love but I could do without the snap peas. My friend had a bowl of tomato bisque soup, we asked for extra bread and it was good, he also had some sort of rice chicken bowl that looked really good. He said it was.

I drove by the restaurant twice and didn't see it but that didn't matter because I had to park half a mile away in a parking garage. I had made a reservation for lunch but the people that I was meeting were not there yet. Everyone else in line who walked in got seated right away but I was given a beeper. I waited 5 minutes and the beeper went off. I was taken to a small table with stools at the bar. No, I was meeting some older people and that would not be comfortable for them. I was told I would have to wait for a booth. At that moment, one of the people that I was meeting came up to me and said they already had a booth. So without a reservation, they were seated before me.
We all got salads and they were very good. The half salad was plenty for lunch. I didn't realize that there would be so many televisions - that annoys me when I'm eating lunch or dinner.
Overall, the wait staff was really nice and the food was good. Not crazy about the atmosphere but I guess most people who come in the evening would like the bar feel.

We had a good time with good friends. They were out of some of the beers listed on the menus that we wanted to try and sometimes had a tough time finding our server. Food was very good and I'm sure we'll be back.

Service started out horrible. Loooooong wait even with reservations. Tried to give me a booth even though I requested a table (since I’m a larger person) Manager made up for it. Ruined my first impression. But Experience got better. My server was amazing and food was awesome!

My daughter and I really enjoyed our dinner after seeing the Nutcracker. Our waitress was phenomenal!! I accidentally left my to go box and left to leave, but first used the restroom. She held onto it in case that was the plan. So very thankful!!! It was a little noisy but it was fun to people watch. Loved that I could reserve on line. I even had to change out res to an earlier time and it was no problem. Staff were quite courteous. We will be back. Jan

Food was great, it wasn't too crowded and ambiance was good but it took our server FOREVER to greet us and we saw her 3x the whole meal. We were starving so that was a bummer. Never asked for a drink order either.

Very nice place especially if you are going to the theater before or after. A little louder than I like but I think that was because it was packed with people. I was very glad we made reservations.

We had a reservation but were told there would even so be a 15 to 40 minute wait. We were given a buzzer and after about a half an hour still had not been seated. If I had gone up to the desk to check about it, and find out that our name had magically disappeared, we would still be sitting there. It's a good location for people going to the theater, but allow plenty of time because even with a reservation you probably will not get seated when you think you will. All that being said, the burgers and sandwiches we got were tasty, though it would have been nice to be told that there was a surcharge for the onion rings when I chose them as an option when the server asked.

Stopped in for dinner. Very accommodating for wheelchair access. Staff was helpful and prompt. Menu is huge so it was a little difficult trying to figure out what they did really well. But the items we chose were great.
