This version of the Yard House chain, is located in a HUGE mall just a few miles from the Tappan Zee bridge.

Large room, lots of tvs, decent food. We went with a large group on a busy friday evening and the service was sorta chaotic and took forever. If we wanted a beer the best option was to buy it at the bar and that was not easy either. They were swamped and seemed to be understaffed...of well, go for the happy hour specals and the HUGE tap list.

Green Flash West coast IPA was fresh, in good shape and quite delicious.

Yeah its a chain, yeah its in a GIANT mall.... Still worth checking out for the beer options, if you are local or if you are passing through the area. Over a hundred mostly high quality options.

Best beer selection at the Palisades Center, not saying much though. They have a decent selection of most styles of beer. Not much knowledge from the staff, often understaffed and sometimes hard to get service. They do have a regular set on tap and have 6 rotating taps that change monthly.

Atmosphere is loud, classic rock is blaring at all times, and there is always a zillion tvs with every game on. Food is alright a mishmash of everything. It is a little over priced, but it is in a giant mall.

I do recommend the place for a pint or two, or for dinner before seeing a movie in the mall. I often stop in while my wife shops.

Not the best place, but a decent spot. Would go again.

The Yard House is strictly a place for atmosphere and beer selection. The place itself is huge, tv's everywhere to watch sports. I know It's a chain but it's a chain that is none existant anywhere else in New York... therefore It's new to the locals here. The food is decent, they have great apps but the entres themselves are average. Tons of food choices like mexican italian american and so on.... but lets be honest, people visit the Yard House for it's crazy selection of beer. Close to 200 beers on tap at all times. Yes its pricey but the variety of beer selection is endless. Great place to hangout while your stuck in a huge mall that you do not want to be in.

Do you like beer? Do you like sports? Do you like food? If you answered yes to any of these questions then this is the place for you.

Was amazed at the selection of beers on tap..I think our server said 180+ (not sure if that was total or just on tap). I didn't count, but from looking at the menu that seemed about right. 10-15 of those were limited offerings. If you're a sports fan and a beer geek then this is your Graceland.

Nice atmosphere..sort of a modern..silver, black and white look to it. Although it's a sports bar with maybe 15-20 flatscreen tv's, it's definitely a kid friendly place. The food was good to very good. You'll probably spend a couple dollars more per item then at some other chain American food/sports bar type places, yet it's worth it because the ambiance and beer selecton is significantly better then almost ALL other similar establishments. Our server was friendly and knowledgable. The beer was very reasonable..about 6 bucks for a 16oz of some good quality craft beers.

I met a buddy of mine there to watch the J-E-T-S's Gump their way to a win yesterday. Now both of us have young children and this is the one free Sunday we were granted in probably the last 2 years, so if this place didn't live up to expectations it would have been a real letdown. Fortunately, we loved it! Now here's the kicker...the YardHouse is in the Palisades mall. So we got to thinking...we can meet here with our wives and kids for lunch on Sunday's..after lunch we stick around to watch the early games..while our wives go shopping with the kids and everyone is happy! BBBRRRILIANT!!!

Yes I'll be going back...OFTEN

I'll put this out there: I'm a snob. I hate chains, I hate big box stores, I've lived in Brooklyn (aka Paradise) and often watch Portlandia identifying with the characters and laughing...well at myself really. So, that is the prism through which this review must be read.

I hated the atmosphere. Hated it. Its a SLIGHTLY toned down version of Buffalo Wild Wings. Its an amusement park thats schtick is good beer. But with all that stimulus overload all my beers tasted like Coldplay and smelled like ESPN. Won't go back.

Service. Well, nice enough but the people who work there applied at 12 other places in the mall that day. So, don't ask questions, you know A LOT more than they do. Also, they're incredibly slow. And due to that slowness, I ordered a "six pack sampler" (do not ask about flights, they do not understand that term), which is pre picked for you and there are no substitutions, while I was halfway through my first beer and was told they couldn't bring it out because there was a limit on "how many ounces could be on a table" (true story). We were eating there before seeing a movie, so time was tight and of course I had to wait 5 mins after I finished my first beer for the sampler to arrive. I'm getting annoyed just recalling this experience.

Selection: If you find yourself in a mall, this place, regardless of all else, can be an oasis. I highly doubt they give a shite about freshness but they did have a few beers I'd never had. Out of there 150+ beers, I've had most. If you've been into beer for more than a couple years, you probably have too. But still, its a decent selection and if they happen to have a couple rarities then good on you mate.

Food: Not bad, but like I said, I want to know my chicken's name, what the farm was like where he came from, and whether there were other chickens there for him to hang around with.

Value: Pretty good.

Overall: if you're making a trip to this place specifically, you can hopefully find a better spot and give your cash to a local owner, not a big corporation cashing in on the latest trend. If you're stuck at a mall anyways, you may as well give your money to this corporation because at least they've cashed in on the latest and greatest trend.

Cheers.
