Me and my friend were here for the late night happy hour (which they hold from 10pm-12am, Su-W). During this time, as well their standard 3-6p M-F happy hour, you can get half-off appetizers, $4 craft pints, and $4.25 goblets. Anyways, we walked in an saw maybe a dozen people inside the place. It's the smallest YardHouse I have been in, though still a pretty good size. The keg room sits to the left, TV's are all over the place, and the oval-shaped bar sits in the middle as rock music was blaring.
The tap beer selection is smaller than the usual YardHosue as well, though it is still a pretty list of beers. Many of the YardHouse staples are there: their 4 house beers, Firestone, Rogue, Delirium Tremens, Red Nectar Ale, Deschutes, Stone, Longboard, Mardesous 10. To my surprise, I found a handful of beers which are difficult to locate on tap: La Chouffe, Blanche de Chambly, Kwak, Green Flash IPA. Drafts are poured into pint glasses and short goblets. We ordered six different beers, all of which were in good condition, though a slightly warmer serving temperature for the stronger beers would warrant a higher score.
We sat at the bar, and the service was very attentive, quick, and friendly, although I should note it wasn't really busy. We ordered some fried calimari and sliders, both which end up hitting the spot for us.
I had forgotten how cool the YardHouse happy hour was, and this visit reminded me why. But keep it mind, if you go off-happy hour, you will be paying a lot more. 6 beers and two appetizers cost me and my friend $40 during happy hour before tip; we would have eclipsed $70-80 if we were to go any other time.
