After hearing about this place for a year or so I knew it was about time to try it out. When you walk in. you are bombarded with an impressive windowed room of taps everywhere I was truly amazed by this. The place was jammed pack, but the the bar was set up pretty nicely in a circular style with taps running the entire perimeter. I was a bit disspaointed with the overall selection some of the bigger breweries that we have in Florida wasn't represented like they could of been, I remeber only seeing 60 min from DFH there, no others. I had while there Terrapin, maudite and also Murphy's irish stout. The Maudite was served in a snifter and was a little cooler than room temp. maybe this was planned. Overall the food was pretty good and the service was decent.

A: I was there around 6:30 pm on a Wednesday evening. Place was very busy. Large open area with the bar in the middle of the restaurant. Classic rock was consistently played over the speakers.

Q: Considering this is a national chain, not bad. Quite touristy though.

Service. I sat at the bar. The bartenders were attentive despite being busy. Can't complain about the service.

Selection: The beer menu is quite extensive. The menu is organized from lightest to darkest. Very well organized. As a beer lover, the list was satisfying. Nothing on the menu seemed too surprising.

Food: I had the halibut. It was cooked very well. Came with parmesan mashed potatoes, asparagus, and bok choy. The menu varies from seafood, steaks, burgers, sandwiches, pizza, and salads. Something for everyone.

V: Overall, for being out of town on business by myself, this place is comfortable. I feel the prices are a little pricey though.

Okay, many BAs have reviewed this place but they've missed the point of this place overall.

I came here on a recent "business" trip. I dropped in on a weekday afternoon.

Atmosphere: I honestly can't imagine a better outside atmosphere. Hell, this is Palm Beach and there are tons of palm trees, great weather, etc. The restaurant itself is very wide open, with tons of tables, taps, computers, etc.

Quality and Service: Once again, I came here on a weekday afternoon, so the service by my waitress was absolutely impeccable.

Selection: Here is where everyone else has complained: The problem stems from the fact that the restaurant claims that they have the "Biggest Taps List in the World." Misleading for sure, but I wouldn't call this place a macro-muck mecha. They had a lot of great stuff: I ordered a Red Skull Amber, CCB Maduro, and a Southern Tier Mocha for dessert. I don't think that line-up sucks at all.

Food: I thought it was fantastic! I ordered a pot pie (awesome!) and got two meals out of it. Also, for dessert, I got the Kona Coffee Ice Cream sundae. Need I say more?

Value: I usually spend the same amount at Chili's and the tap list and food here was infinitely better.

When you're shopping around this area and wanting a beer or two before a movie (there's also a movie theater here), come here for some food and relaxation!

I'm not entirely sure what Yard House's purpose is. It's a big restaurant (and restaurant chain) with a very large craft beer tap list, but the beer menu also includes plenty of macro swill as well, which to me takes up valuable keg real estate and should be reconsidered. Is it a restaurant with a lot of beer, or is it a giant beer bar with a full food menu? Yard House contributes virtually nothing to south Florida's burgeoning beer community. I never hear about craft beer dinners, tap takeovers, or any specially events of that nature. They sell yards of beer, which just seems gimmicky. Nobody who enjoys quality beer is going to drink that much from one container in one sitting. The atmosphere is cool - they played lots of music I like at just the right background volume. The waitresses were young, attractive and friendly, though seemed to know next to nothing about beer. It's nice that Yard House lets you buy a set of sample-size beers at reasonable prices, which is a big plus for noobs to the craft beer world. I loved the Jamaican jerk wings that I had here and some of the other food I sampled was great, too. Still, chains like this and World Of Beer aren't really for me and I'd rather spend my money at an establishment that's more focused on really great beer and expanding the craft beer community.

Yard House has a good selection of beers on tap, although the selections don't rotate or vary much from location to location. Their menu has beers sorted by style with descriptions of each style, making it easier to choose beers for beginners or experts.

They also have a full menu and the food is great, albeit pricey. I would usually go during their happy hour for discounts on beer and half-price appetizers. Atmosphere is always great and the service staff is helpful and knowledgeable about their beers. They also have TVs showing sports games, which can be good if you are going on the weekends.

There signature glass is a yard high. Go figure! It is cool to drink out of it once but after that it is just a hassle. They have so many brews on tap it is ridiculous. My favorite thing to do is get a six pack sampler. I love trying different brews and this is a great way to get that done. Plus they do mix beers such as the classic black and tan. Also an Eclipse which is Guinness and Blue Moon. The food is good too but a bit pricey. Oh yeah and beer floats. Never had one but I am always tempted. I have been a bunch of times and always enjoyed myself. I would go more if it wasn't so pricey. Great place to go and have a couple brews. Unfortunately they do not turn the music off during football games :(

100-something taps, but nothing very interesting. Pretty much all the taps are your standard flagship beers from different breweries. This isn't a bad thing - a lot of the beers they have are very good - but when you hear how many taps they have, your imagination has a tendency to run wild.

The absolute worst feature of the entire establishment is the lack of prices on the beer menu. How is this an acceptable practice? I don't want to ask the price of every single beer I'm considering buying.

Bartenders themselves are friendly and fast, but don't seem to know anything about the beers themselves. They frequently refer to the beers by the breweries themselves, instead of the actual name, seemingly because they don't really know the difference.

The food choices are pretty uninspired, but not bad. There just isn't anything special about them.
