Stopped in for a pint while waiting for check in time at a nearby hotel.

The tap list was huge - must have been over 100 beers on tap, most of which were craft beer. The selection was also decent, including offerings form Stone, Ballast Point, Alaskan, Sierra Nevada and others. Heavily focused on lagers and other easy drinking beers. Of the 100+ taps, only 3 beers were listed in the stout category and they included the liked of Guinness. Selection did include IPAs, DIPAs, a few porters and a lot of pale ales, ambers, etc. There were also a few house beers, but I didn't try any. I had a pint of BP Black Marlin Porter, which was excellent.

Atmosphere was very reminiscent of a chain restaurant, which this basically is. (730 characters)

This Yard House is near the Gaslamp District in San DIego. It's a fairly large space both in the dining and bar area. They are known for having a very large tap list. This location is no different. Large doesn't necessary mean great all the way around. They had nice beers on tap, but also your standard stuff which is probably by design to attract the most diverse clientele possible.

I sat at the bar area and watched some college basketball. I didn't have any beers since I was at Stone earlier for a cheese pairing event.

I ordered their surf and turf burger which was a nice burger with some lobster claw meat on top. It was a nice combination and tasty.

My servers were prompt and courteous.

It's one of many choices in this area of town, so while Yard House is a good place to grab some beer and food, it's not a must stop for San Diego, in my opinion. (872 characters)

Great beer selection, mediocre everything else including food and service. Many better options in San Diego. (109 characters)

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. (468 characters)

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 (296 characters)
