If you have been to any Yard House, it is basically the same. A large bar that can seat a boat load of people, 100+ taps, and decent food. The layout here was a bit different since the dining space is a bit different from other Yard House restuarants. Loads of TVs through the place showing sports. The beer offering were typical for a Yard House with a few more local San Diego beers. Overall, this place is consistent to other YH restaurants and is worthy of a stop.

Something for everybody, beer menu organized by taste/style, making it easier to locate what you want. 100 taps...enough said. Take the trip to the restrooms and look in on the Keg room. Enough for everybody, even particular people like me.... Good selection of local, regional, and international

We stopped in to this location a couple of times during our week in San Diego since it was across the street from our hotel.

The place is big, with a huge oval bar, counter space and high tops behind, a good sized dining room. Downstairs is the "barrel room" which is open on weekend nights but which we did not get to. Sports bar like feel in general but a bit darker, which gave it more charm than the Yard House I visited in Las Vegas.

This is a mega tap place, 120+ beers, heavily concentrated in local and regional craft taps. To fill this number of taps with craft and keep it fresh, you have to have lots of the standard products and few seasonals. So the choice can be oddly unexciting for a craft drinker who has done a reasonable amount of traveling and/or trading and is looking for something new. We lucked out here as our visit was during beer week and there were some special kegs (GF 9th Anniversary, Hamilton's 5th Anniversary Black Ale, DDH Ruination with oak). But even on a non Beer Week visit, it's nice to have fresh Deschutes (even if it's *just* Mirror Pond), FW (even if it's *just* Union Jack), etc.

Service was really good, prompt, friendly and more knowledgeable than I would have expected. Food was decent, nothing memorable.

On the whole, if I lived in a town with a Yard House, I'd probably never go. But for an out of towner the experience can be quite nice.
