I travel to Las vegas twice a year for sales meetings and conventions. I do not gamble so dining out with friends and colleagues has become my favorite activity.
There are countless good restaurants in Vegas, but except for the Burger Bar at Mandalay, there are really few good places for beer. Sure there's Gordon Biersch and some German place, but they have a very limited selection.
When I heard that the Yard House was coming to Las Vegas, and it was situated right down the block from Mandalay, I knew that I had to go and try it out.
It has been two years and four trips now and the Yard House has become my favorite place to go in Vegas. I always go during the week for happy hour, and we load up on half price beer and appetizers. All the food is good. All the beers are good. All the servers are good.
This last trip, we sat in a booth (5 of us) and ate and drank for over two hours and the bill was under $100.00.
A great value, and a fine beer selection.
For others who live for matching glassware, I enjoy it to. But if I have a choice of drinking a Chimay in a Chimay glass for $7, or in a generic goblet for $3.50 and it is exactly the same beer, I can live without the matching glassware!
Don't be a snob and miss out on this place. Also, stay away from the Freakin' Frog. They have matching glassware but they suck.

(Visited 08/2011): This Yard House location is in the relatively new Town Square mall on the south side off 15/215. Parking is plentiful all around.
The interior is laid out similarly to other Yard House locations, with the circular bar right in the center. The rest of the space features dark wood with booths and tables. TVs are plentiful behind the bar, lending to an upscale sports bar feel.
Yard House's tap list exceeds 100, with many regional craft brewers represented, such as Firestone Walker (who provides the "Yard House" brand beers), Tenaya Creek, Deschutes and Stone. The bottle selection is pretty much nonexistent.
Service at the bar was friendly as the bartenders use a tag team approach. They were all friendly and kept up with sample requests and refills.
Food at Yard House is consistently good. My colleagues and I shared several appetizers and they were all solid.
Overall you know what you are going to get with Yard House, which is both a positive and a negative. While the beer list is dominated by common and/or bland macros, you can always count on finding something good. Worth a stop for anyone visiting the area.

Went with a group from our company while in town. The keg room is the first thing you notice when entering. Kegs upon kegs upon kegs packed into this room! They stated they had 147 beers to choose from. Almost a little overwhelming and more choices than you need. Most of the beers were nothing special, almost all year round beers. But if your in town, a good selection of beers in the area.
The food was really good. Had the nights special of Mahi-Mahi. The table got some deserts, one was a framboise float. Interesting desert. Service was ok, they were pretty busy that night. Our waitress was pretty knowledgeable on the beer selection and quick with recommendations.
Nice place to go and hang out for drinks and dinner. If your tired of the strip, the Yard House and Town Square are a nice change of pace.
