Visited on a Thursday around 5 pm during happy hour which runs from 3 - 6 pm on weekdays.

Personally I thought the parking situation was excellent, with hundreds, maybe thousands, of parking spaces available within less than a two minute walk from the Yardhouse.

The atmosphere of the room itself was nice, tastefully decorated yet not by any means stuffy. Plenty of screens to watch all the games, good sized tables with nicely padded seats. I didn't venture out onto the patio but it looked somewhat nice and had a few dozen tables.

Being happy hour, it was very busy, with all tables appearing full. However my friend and I walked in and were seated promptly with no wait.

The service was wonderful. Wish I could remember our waitresses name but she came around just often enough, but not too often. Just the perfect balance. She also knew the beer and food menu well and answered all my questions easily.

The selection of beers was good. I suppose by almost any other standard it was excellent, as it has 160 beers on tap. However for some reason nothing really jumped out at me as being something I just HAD to try. I'd already had most of the beers on the list at one time or another, and pretty much everything worthwhile on the list is available for purchase at either Lee's Discount Liquors or Khoury's here in Vegas. However if you live here and don't get to those places much, or if you're an out of towner just visiting then you might see quite a few brews here that look mighty tempting.

The food my friend and I had were also on the happy hour menu, so they were half priced. I had a margherita pizza which was excellent and my friend had sliders which he said were very good.

As for value, well it depends on what time of day you go. As mentioned, we went during happy hour and so everything we had was half off, and so therefore it was quite a deal. $22 total for two drinks,a plate full of sliders and fries and a good sized pizza. However at regular price I'd say it might be pushing it a bit.

Anyways, if you're a local looking for another place to try, or a tourist looking to sample something besides hotel food and beer, then I'd recommend the Yardhouse, especially if you go there during happy hour.

Visited on Sunday, 05/11/08 at about 3:00pm.

Parking is virtually nonexistant here unless you want to valet. I hate doing that, so I parked over by The Guitar Center. I can only imagine that the walk from the parking lot during the summer heat is going to make you want to drink a good beer even more than the urge that drove you to seek this place out to start with.

Inside, the first thing I noticed (besides that the place was packed to the gills) was the art. Lots of really cool canvases decorate the walls of this place. It's really different than the other Yard Houses I've been to.

Similar to all the other ones, though, it's crazy busy and, despite all the good beer, it seems at least half the people there are drinking something non-alcoholic. They also have the long, overhead beer lines and the keg storage far, far away from the bar.

We waited at the bar about twenty minutes for a table. My friend sacrficed and let me have the one open seat. He stood. We had some pretty good pints before we were paged for seating.

The food was tasty and pretty well executed (though I think my chicken was a tad underdone), but I wouldn't come here for the food alone.

Yes, lots of TVs showing an NBA playoff game which elicited frequent roars from those seated at the bar. If you're not into sports, it can be unnerving at best and supremely annoying at worst.

They whipped this Town square development up in no time--even the locals agree that it was built extremely quickly. I was here in October and it wasnt much more than a shell and here it is in April- all built and new. There are a bunch of other restaurants and bars in here and Yardhouse is kind of tricky to find. It is kind of on the edge of the development closer to the Mandalay Bay side rather than the airport side.

The decor is kind of typical brewpub style with lots of steel and big glass windows to allow you to see all the kegs and such. There is an outdoor seating section as well and the place is pretty jam packed with people. This is at like 3:30 on a Friday afternoon which also happens to be happy hour.

My patience was rewarded as I managed to get some seats at the bar and all US craft beers are $1 off per pint of the regular $4.25 or $4.50 cost so that makes it a pretty darn good deal for good quality beers that are fresh and tasty.

I opted for a Deschutes pale ale which I loved and I had a second one. Also had a Kona longboard lager too which was a great light one to cap everything off.

They have happy hour prices on some food items too also. For food, its half off the regular price. I got a rare tuna ahi thing that was excellent and one other item that was good that I cant remember.

Fairly similar to the San Diego location decor wise but it seems so much more needed here. It really gives a good option for beer close to the strip w/o the strip prices which have become somewhat Manhattan-esque recently.

One other thing to note--no video poker or slot machines in here. It is kind of nice to find a bar/restaurant in LV without these for a change of pace.

I visited in early April 2008, just a few weeks after the opening. This is not an easy place to find since it is in this big town center with a boatload of shops and restaurants. It is near the rear of the complex close to the west parking garage.

When walking in you first notice a room with about 100+ kegs that are tapped supplying the bar area. The restaurant has a nice feel to it, and the bar is very large and oblong with about 45+ stools around it. The 100+ taps are clearly visible, but you need to walk around the bar to see the entire selection. The beer menu is listed in alphabetical order which is nice if you are looking for something specific. There is also an outdoor dining area.

They claim about 160 taps, but unfortunately about 40 were unavailable - worse yet the first two I ordered were not available. Defintely a nice selection but there is a lot of macros and easy to find micros. Loads of west coast beers, with some germans and belgians too. The only local beer on tap is Sin City - too bad Chicago or Big Dog's aren't available.

One beer I had was a Deschutes Mirror Pond, and it was a bit old tasting compared to what I have had at other bars. The Lost Coast beer I had was fresher. This may relate to the large selection and the fact some are not moving as quickly as others.

I had a pizza and and an appetizer which were both good and served quickly. Service was spotty as the bartenders were friendly but slow in getting back through the number of drink requests.

This place was defintely worth a visit and a great addition to the Vegas beer scene, but I personally still prefer the local brewpubs Chicago and Big Dogs.
