The WALLMART of Tap Rooms.

Las Vegas, Just before Christmas (2008) The whole town is slower then normal due to the economy. I went here as a last minute decision to get out a town for Christmas (to cold).

One decision was a place to get decent beer. Or so I thought.

The Yard House claims to have the worlds largest selection of draft beer. It may, with well over 100 beers on draft, maybe 200.

That is nice, but the place is not a dream come true, to a real beer lover. As it has no soul, it has no vibe, it looks nice, like something you would expect in Vegas, glitzy and boring. The food and service were excellent though and I really enjoyed the food I ate The beer tenders were responsive and did a good job. My fault with the place is it has no soul. Sure they play rock and roll, and put on Monday night football, that may be the problem. It cant decide to be a sports bar or beer bar, and caters to thous who don't care.

The taps though plenty had few surprises, few rare beers and all served in the same glassware. They have no wall mounted beer menu, you have to keep asking for the beer list and there is no attempt to bracket the beers by style.

I like a list on the wall, that maybe shows beer by type, or at least company, country. The lists is the menu and it disappears like a state secret once you order.

No information on the beer itself, as if you should know what your ordering. This is the Wallmart or Costco of tap rooms. They do have beer mixes, not my style as I find the whole mixing beer appalling. The selection of American Craft beers is limited to only a few brands. This is probably due to the fact that this place is all about volume, speed and money.

Give me the Toronado in San Francisco, that place has soul, that place is a beer mans house of joy.

The Yardhouse, a Fraternity hangout for people who don't know much about beer but like to pretend they do.

When you pour mixed drinks, wine and bud, how can you be a place for real beer. No Firkins, no bottles, no soul.

Sure I will go back, I liked the food and service I found decent beers, but only as there are few alternatives here. When I am back in San Francisco, I will hug the bar tender at the Toronado.

I could have sworn I put in a review of this place back in Jun 2014, but.....

(Visited 06/2014): A buddy and I visted at least 3 places on this trip.

Very nice place, yeah definitely a sports bar feel. Very good on-tap list, they had some specials going on I remember. The bartender actually knew something about beer I remember. The place was packed, lots of families. We sat at the bar. I had at least the 120 Minute DFH on tap.

They had a great menu, but unfortunately the first 4 items we ordered they were out of. They told us they were in the process of updating the beer menu so it was just bad timing for us. Still we had good beers and the food was incredible. Don't leave without trying the ala cart taco's. We had one of each and they were all fresh and delicious. Even the kids food was really good.

We will definitely go back next time we are in Vegas.

This was the least favorite of the three locations in Vegas that I visited during a recent trip. It was crowded, had a din and didn't have the vibe of the other two locations.

(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.
