Yard House Restaurant Review

: In spite of its best attempts, Yard House continues to be known as a bar, not a restaurant. We think Yard House is deserving of the latter label, too, particularly after sampling the grilled hearts of romaine salad, the buttery grilled rib-eye with garlic mashed potatoes and the tender and tangy sea bass. But with 200 brews on tap and a host of specialty martinis on the bar menu, this place, we're guessing, will continue to draw the thirsty masses. Recommended late-night eats: the classic cheeseburger, onion rings and seared ahi with soy vinaigrette. Because of the noise level at this lively restaurant, kids are actually well tolerated, and there’s a nice menu of kid-friendly food. Other locations.
