I really liked this place a very very nice selection of brews, they served something called a shorty I believe (9 oz.) with a very nice price attached to it. The place was very active alot of people there. The staff knew their brew's. I did not have any food, but the plates I saw look pretty good. I would recommend this place and would visit again.

Visited the Yard House for dinner on a Thursday evening. The location is through the winding drives of the Town Square shopping center south of the Vegas strip. (Wait for a cab was short afterwards)

Walking towards the door, windows displayed the dozens and dozens of kegs being dispensed. The general appearance was clean and cool. Inside, the large rectangular bar centered the room. Metal and brick gives the room a modern, industrial feel. Commercial and sturdy.

We stopped at the hostess stand and were quickly seated. We were handed menus and began the selection process. The beer menu and the food menu are both long, so it may take a little time to decide. There was a wide range of bar fare. Pizza, pasta, salads, sandwiches, and vegetarian fare were listed. I eventually choose the pepper crusted gorgonzola burger with truffle fries, and it was tasty.

With over one hundred beers to choose from, one would expect to be amazed, but I was hoping for something more. I wanted to see some more uncommon choices. I wanted casks and really special seasonals. Am I jaded? (I did enjoy my Dechutes Black Butte)

Service was slow. When we first sat down, we ordered water, but hadn't picked our beer yet. Our waters were dropped off, and pretty well drained before we make our order. Our food also came slowly. It wasn't cold, but it wasn't as hot as it should have been.

I'd say Yard House is solid, but I wouldn't make a special trip here. (especially by cab)

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.

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.

So the applebee's of beer joints has made it to Las Vegas, however the luxury of personally knowing that the GM and a regular floor manager are exceptionally competent at their gig, I knew I had to check this place out more than a few times before posting a review.

All the things you'd expect from a mainstream establishment, GordonBiersh'esque stainless steel interior with well thought out art and ambiance lighting, outdoor seating, and essentially a wonderful dining environment. Even when extremely busy the traffic tends to surround only the bar patrons, and therefore most table diners are left alone. The food is excellent, and in my opinion as it should be, as all kinks with the menu should have been ironed out in the CA stores, among other locales as well.

The only qualm with this establishment is, since I'm assuming it is similar to other mainstream dining venues, is that it is susceptible to a high turnover rate among employees and therefore the training and overall beer knowledge (I'm leaving dining out of this review...)is often shoddy. In the four times I've drank at the Vegas location the bartender/server has never heard of or understood the concept of the following: Oatmeal Stout, A Belgian Trappist, A Belgian Lambic, and even refused to pour a new drink in replacement for the stale and obviously outdated Ephemere that was set in front of my date.

Judge as you wish, and feel free to consider me a grumpy gent with a sore eye for mainstream establishments, however upon granting this place more than three attempts I know I like this place more for its dining. This is beer advocate after all, correct?

I've been there over 20 times. The food is good and they have a lot of beers on tap. My one complaint is its all stuff you can find other places. The atmosphere is good and the food is good too. I would recommend if you have never been to a yard house to go there instead. If you have been to one then you will not be impressed by the beer selection - all in all I have a pretty good experience there when i go. It can be hard to find parking at night its next to 3 nightclubs. So i would suggest going during the day.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Had my wife's birthday dinner here on a weekend trip to Vegas. I had never been to a Yard House, so I was excited to try it!

I loved the open view of the keg room. Got me wanting to get in right away! This was a Sat night in Las Vegas, so it was pretty busy. However, we only waited about 10 minutes for a table. We were sat down, and I went over the beer selection with my wife, and our family. The waiter was fairly helpful. However, I got the impression he new about the beers they had on tap, but not really about beer in genreal. However, he was helpful, and made a few good recomendations for my wife. I had a Tres Pistoles, and Ruination. 1st time I had ever had either one on tap.

Food was very good. Not cheap, but not outragous either. It was a very nice evening. I would recomened anyone that likes beer to try this place out.

Located about 100 yards from the Whole Foods Market in the byzantine Town Square shopping center on the south end of the Strip, about 1.5 miles from the airport, Yard House was a nice lunch stop after a quick beer shopping stop at WF.

The place is big, with a huge oval bar in the center and lots of tables all around. Very much a corporate sports bar feel with TVs everywhere. Not bad.

Tap selection is huge, with about 140 or so taps. Most everything is craft, which is quite impressive. Nothing too "special" from the gargantuan list, but I am happy to be able to grab a Union Jack anytime, any place so I was happy.

My cajun chicken sandwich was sold, though not spectacular. Service was perfectly pleasant. Worth a stop if you are in the area.

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.

I heard about this place from a waitress in Planet Hollywood.

About a ten minute drive south of the strip in an outdoor mall. Took a bit to find it.

Walked in the doorway and off to the left is a hallway with rows and rows of kegs. The atmosphere is pretty modern and trendy. A lot of dark colors and metal. A huge bar in the middle with two towers that a wrapped with tap handles. Claim to have the largest selection at 160 but I'd say it was closer to 100 but still impressive.

Food was probably a bit of a step from average pub food. Pretty solid.

Service was solid. The waitress was there the second our glass was close to empty and had a pretty good knowledge of the beer she was serving.

Price was pretty reasonable compared that to the prices on the strip.

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!!
