A - Loud and bustling inside. Music was too loud in the dining room for comfortable conversation. Quiet and relaxing outside after dark. Beautiful weather (of course).
Q - I got Gulden Draak on tap. It was served in a goblet at a good temperature. Beer seemed fresh and well kept, but the carbonation was too low.
Service - Wait staff was friendly and helpful. Took my server's suggestion for the jambalaya as "a great dish, just not traditional jambalaya." Perfect description and I agree.
Selection - Claim to have world's largest draft beer selection. Could be, but much of it is mainstream. The night I was there the waitress said they had 147 out of 160 taps going.
F - Food selection was extensive and reasonably priced. The quality, taste and presentation of the food I saw was impeccable. Truly impressive.
V - The beer and food was a little expensive, but not out of line for Vegas.
Overall, a good beer and food experience in a town where Bud Light Lime is considered a specialty beer.

We dont have much for great places to grab a brew so I'll take it where I can get it. Yeah, I am not much for chains, but this one I think deserves some kudos for carrying such a variety which is not a possibility for many mom n pop stops. Yeah nothing there is quite rare on tap, but it is a wide selection...I guess for some of the" beer elite" they wont be impressed, but to me the amount on tap is something to be happy about.
It doesn't have the charm of a neighborhood bar, but makes up in selection and surrounding attractions. Sometimes too, its a plus for us that this is not just a beer bar. It's some place that we can take our folks, it's a place we can meet up with friends who have kids for lunch who dont really like beers, but everyone can leave happy with their wide variety of foods. Prices are reasonable compared to the strip, but I mostly come to the Happy Hour to get a great deal. I love that they do reverse happy hours for late night/swing shift people like us who never get to partake on the usual 5-7 kind of hours.

The Yard House is a beer bar in an upscale shopping mall at the south end of the Las Vegas Strip. Very large, there are about 50 booths around the perimeter and about 50 more tables surrounding the very large bar. There is also an outdoor area. The center pieces of the bar are the two beer tap towers, each with 80 taps. Lots of beer !! But actually nothing special or unique. Make a list of the most popular beers in the world; imports, macros, and micros. This list is what they serve. A caveat: The tapped kegs are in a small, glassed in room up front on the way to the rest rooms. Some of the lines from the kegs to the taps are probably over 100 feet long.

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.

Well worth a visit to this relatively new bar in "Town Square" a mile or so South of the strip.
The Deuce bus stops outside the square which is handy if you want to sample a few beers.
On entry I was amazed at the selection of beer, the taps are lined up all around a central alcove to the bar, there is at least 160 I believe.
We were a little dissappointed to be told that the sampler choice was only 2 lists of 6 pre chosen beers. Nevertheless we went for them and found the quality excellent.
We also tried the chicken wings which were excellent.
Highly recommended, just a shame we didn't have longer to visit a few more times!

What can I say? My second Yardhouse location and this one did not disappoint. The tortilla soup was just as good (best I've had anywhere) and the burger I had was outstanding.
A bit off the beaten path from the strip, but worth a cab ride for the beer selection alone. I had a very fresh Ruination, and a SN Anniversary. Ordered an Old Rasputin at one point but received something that was not even close. Server graciously took it back.
Town Square area is a decent place to stroll around while you are out there.

Finally had the chance to check this place out after have moved to Las Vegas a month ago. First impression was pretty great a truth window showing all the kegs was pretty awesome.
Happened to sit down at the start of happy hour lucky for me how can you beat a pint of stone anything for 3 bucks. Not to mention half price apps. Was pretty hungry so grabbed a couple apps to split with the GF
Service was excellent I cant remember our servers name for the life of me but she def knew her beer and for that alone is worth a big tip in my book :) The selection of beer is pretty solid, mostly west coast and quite a few imports, I think the number on tap was somewhere around a 150 or so but based on how busy it was when I stopped in I would say they are def turning over those kegs so freshness should not be an issue it wasn't with any of the brews I tried.
So if your in the Las vegas area def check out this branch I recommend it highly

I have now been to 7 Yardhouse's. This one kicked some major A**. From the moment you walk in and see this long cooler filled with kegs after kegs to the left you know it's gonna be a fun night.
The service was out of this world. Couple of bartenders Like Brian, Tisa,DJ And the some of the best manager's I've ever in countered.
FOOD . Fantastic(slider's,t-bone and shrimp. and sourdough) YUMMY!
ABOUT 160 TAPS STONE,KONA,LOST COAST,ANDERSON VALLEY,ROGUE

P.S. GREAT COMEDY CLUB RIGHT OUT THE FRONT DOOR'S

This Town Mall or whatever one wants to call it was built really fast and I mean even by Vegas standards. The interior decor is a little different than the others I have been in and to me it is more comfortable.
On a recent week I had two late afternoon meetings with casino types and both were complaining how slow business was. I then went to the Yard House and it was packed!! and this is a week when nothing was going on in Vegas. This one seems to have a little better selection of micros but I have heard from more than one person that everyone here drinks BMC and the freshness of the beer is a big problem.
UPDATE 9/20/11 I stopped in here for lunch today, and started with the usual questions, any new IPA's answer no any new pilsners answer no, anything from Tenaya Creek, blank stare so I said you have never heard of this micro right, the bartender said no never heard of it . OMG Tenaya Creek is a Las Vegas based micro in business for 10 years or more. I ordered a grilled romaine entree salad, I recieved a grilled artichoke. While I was there a hostess came by with a arm full of menus, Yardhouse menus have a hard cover, she hit my barstool so hard she moved it, no are you OK, no I am sorry, she just kept walking. Yardhouse Corporate, the ship is taking on water!!

I just went to Vegas for a friend's 30th birthday. Her brother suggested the Yard House and I went there right after I dropped my bags at the hotel room.
Okay... I was starving. They had a fairly extensive menu of pub food and standard American fare. I had the french onion soup. It was outstanding. (I was starving)
The tap list was extensive. Mostly west coast brewers, some midwest, some east coast. I've never seen Chimay _on tap_ but there it was. Unfortuneatly I had a head cold which prevented me from enjoying most of the brews. It didn't stop me from ordering them. So my first Anderson Valley Hop Ottin was enjoyed in a very handicapped state. A buddy I was with said it smelled outstanding and took a sip even though she knows she hates IPAs. She still hated the bitterness, but took a sniff every now and again.
I made a recommendation to 2 folks at the table for Lost Coast Great White. Turns out they didn't like it, thought it was skunked (I had no sense of smell). The server explained that it was probably the blend of spices... but she made good anyways, by bringing them different beers without charge. Plus she told me a place I could score some Abyss.
The only negative aspect was the incredibly NOISY atmosphere. You could be heard by the person next to you, unless you were yelling. At least on Saturday night.
Overall, it was a very good bar. I loved a bunch of things about it, but the service was really impressive. I understand that my first 1-2 nights in Vegas are always the most enjoyable but I did rate it with that in mind.
