Visited late on a Sunday night after a terrible day of traveling from the east coast. I needed food and beer. Yard House was a welcome oasis.

A - Nice open, clean, well lit, but not too bright. I like the all metal bar top.

Q - No complaints.

S - I was literally the only person at the bar, so service was excellent. Had a good conversation with the bartender (Drew) about beer, politics, and back east. Food came quickly and as ordered.

S - Excellenet selection. Something for everyone.

F - I had the ribeye, with garlic mash potatoes and lightly sauted green beans. The manager warned me that he thought the ribeye could be cut better and that I should get the fillet. Not a fillet fan, went with the ribeye. My expectations were not steak house high. The steak was fine, considering all the yummy beer available. The green beans were actually the best part of the meal.

V -- At about $26 the steak was a little over priced for the quality.

Located in an upscale area of Phoenix in a mall. Well over 100 taps yet nothing unusual or hard to find. Like others, I'm concerned about how long the beer sits in a huge distance of lines. Tried a Papago beer that tasted nothing like it did at the brewery. Like most places I found in Phoenix, you really need to hit most places during happy hour to save big on drinks. This is not a destination but a place to visit when your options are limited. The food was upscale and pricey, yet overall quite good.

I've visited here a few times while out on business in Phoenix. The atmosphere was nice and the bar well set up. Just seeing all those taps so neatly lined up will bring a smile to your face.

Service was adequate. It was a busy night so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.

The beer selection was well above average. I've been to places with lots of taps, only to find out most of them are dominated by macros. That wasn't the case here. Loads of craft brews, with a few West Coast offerings I can't find around here.

The food was very good and portions were of a decent size. It was a little expensive but worth it in the end.

Look it, I hate to come down on a place with such a massive tap, but I need to.

Clean your lines even if the keg hasn't been tapped yet.

They have an unrealistic selection of beers on tap here.

I say unrealistic because I saw Delerium Tremens come onto tap one week and not leave for 6 months. I am under the impression that, matched up to the other 99 beers they have on tap there, DT doesn't get much needle time, so that keg just sat there for six months. Not so bad until you consider that their cooler is on the other side of the fricken restaurant and all the lines run up the wall, across the roof and down to the taps.

I calculate there could be 2 gallons of beer in transit at anytime, and I don't know about you, but when I am about to pay 7 bucks for a brew I don't want the possibility of it chilling in 20 meters of plastic tubing for the last 10 days to be a possibility, only thing is it's the reality here.

I'm in to craft and places pumping it, but this place just went overkill grabbed everything they could on tap and left the craft out of it, which is making sure you do everything possible to give you the best tasting beer.

Food is good, pricey and a seems like apple bees that got famous and now rolls a lex instead of a pinto. Not the worst decision of a place to go, but if you do grab something that seems like it flows often or your taste buds will pay.

This place is a great place to try out. It is unbelievable how many draft beers they have. It really bothered me that they didn't have any flights and at 6 bucks a beer it was a bit of a disappointment I couldn't try them all. They have windows to their keg cooler which was quite a site. Almost interesting to see just how they run the lines to the kegs, yet alone the 200 kegs. The food is mediocre, but a bit better priced than the beers. I definitely recommend trying this one out, expecially if you would like to try some craft beers on draft.
