Yard House Restaurant Review

: Yard House at The River was the third outpost to open in a chain that now boasts more than 70 locations. The beer-centric eatery boasts a mostly made-from-scratch kitchen and a diverse selection of appetizers, salads, fresh poke, sandwiches, steaks, rice bowls and more. The Vampire Taco is an unexpected treat, full of flavor and coupled with guacamole and cilantro. Burgers are always a hit, too, and even include a vegan option. Craft beer is Yard House’s calling card, though, and there are some 180 brews on tap. Expect a decent wine selection and bartenders capable of crafting first-rate cocktails; all syrups are made in-house, and some are infused with jalapeños, basil and other herbs. The restaurant offers a great happy hour on weekdays and late-night happy hour Sunday through Thursday.
