I hit the Yard House with BAs LongBeachBum, Stoutlove77, and DavidBanner. It's big upscale spot on the water. The crowd is on the young side (at least from my point of view) and it seems to be a bit of a pick-up spot. Even for us married guys, this does leave plenty of good looking women to see, but it's not exactly the atmoshpere for serious beer enjoyment. As others have pointed out, the wait for the toilet is a real problem, especially when one of the urinals is on the fritz, as it was on our visit. Service at the bar is fairly attentive and friendly. The selection is vast, though I'd have liked to see a few more exotic beers on the menu. All in all, it's a great spot to try on tap many beers that are usually found only in the bottle in Southern California. I'll go back.

My large work group arrived right before sunset. The views here are amazing. The sun was setting and reflecting off of the harbor right out front of our window seats. Since we were such a large group they gave us the entire harbor room. Food was good, but not great. Service was actually pretty good for the size of our table, but a bit slow. The beer list is lengthy and extensive, but there isn't anything rare or special. I tried some of the house beers that are brewed by Firestone Walker. They also were adequate, but nothing special. Go for the atmosphere and views.

The location of this place is unbeatable - looking right over the harbor to the lighthouse and to downtown Long Beach. A great place to have a brew or 3 and watch the sunset. I did just that, having their House Amber Tripel, Golden Monkey, and a Shipyard XXXX. A lot of their offerings I had seen before but there were some pleasant surprises on the menu. I'm not sure how often they rotate. The place seems popular with the craft beer crowd and non-beer drinkers alike, as there were a lot of people having wine or mixed drinks out there. The server was knowledgeable and offered me some notes on a few beers. The food was pretty good, but admittedly I didn't have all that much - onion rings and the clam chowder, but from what I saw from other people's plates, I might come back here to eat sometime. Overall a place that I'd revisit if I was in town again. Not really a destination, but a solid place overall. My only complaint - they don't put any head on the pours. Not that big a deal, but would have been nice.

Atmosphere: Sat on the deck, nice view of the marina.
Food: Had the Sea Scallops. Good but not great. Rice medley that it came with was good.
Price: I didn't pay.
Beer: Lots of beer to choose from of course. Staff was very helpful and knowledgeable.
Two sampler sets of six to choose from. We ended up getting both and then some. I came away with several new favorites to look for again.
-Moylan's Kilt Lifter Scotch Ale
-Ommegang (Abbey Ale)
-Avery The Reveand
-Tetleys Pub Creram Ale
-Young's Double Chocolate Stout
-Primo Island Lager (See this is rated low on BA so I will have to try again but it was fine on tap)

A: way, way too noisy. Granted, I'm pretty sensitive to noise as a general rule, but this was beyond excessive. My friends and I had to literally yell to hear each other at our own table, at this was at 7pm, not during crazy bar only hours.
S: Friendly, helpful.
S: Had tremendous selection! 150+ beers on tap. I ordered the Dogfish Head 90 min IPA, which was pretty dang good. Bummed to not see Russian River represented there, but the waitress took interest in my inquiry and I was assured that they are always looking for more quality beers to put on tap!
F: Very tasty. I split the Orange Peel Chicken with my fiance, which wasn't my first choice, but I still enjoyed it.
V: Appetizer, Split meal, tiny dessert, and two beers ran us about $60. To me, this is a bit pricey.

Went here during a stay at a nearby hotel.
Atmosphere is good. It's right on the water with a good deal of outside seating. Once inside there's a ton of seating with a pretty large bar in the middle of everything. Nothing else really stood out.
Quality is alright. Everything (at least everything I had) was served in a standard pint glass with a good amount of head. Some beers were a bit on the cold side but the glasses definitely weren't close to being chilled.
Service was alright. I had to wait at the bar for a good while before the person who kept telling me he'd be with me in a moment was finally with me. He was nice enough but his knowledge was a bit lacking (couldn't list off various seasonals, not knowing styles).
Selection is good. They certainly have a ton of beers broken up by style on the menu, however most of this stuff is available at many places around town, just not all in once place. Everyone can certainly find something they're looking for. I had a Hemp Ale and Nautical Nut Brown from AleSmith.
Food was good. I believe I had the fish and chips and it was solid.
Value is good. It was a bit on the pricey side - especially the food - but nothing outrageous.
Overall this is a good place to go have a few if you want a large selection but if you're looking for anything on the rarer side there are better places to go.
