This was the place closest to my hotel during a recent stay but the last place to go.

Atmosphere is good - similar to the other Yard House location I've been to (in Long Beach) with lots of wood, a large central bar, and lots of TV's. It's actually fairly similar to Flying Saucer and Taco Mac locations (although I don't remember the former having TV's).

Quality is OK. The temperature of the beer is good however the head is minimal. The glassware was appropriate for the beers I had.

Service is pretty good. We had to wait a bit longer than we should have to order drinks but after the initial order we didn't have to wait long again.

Selection is good. Nothing spectacular but a solid selection of local and non-local brews.

Value is a bit on the expensive side. This may be because the pours are larger (16 or 20 oz. I believe) but I'd rather have smaller pours and spend my money on different drinks. Maybe they have half-pours?

Overall, as mentioned before, this is my second Yard House visit and I remain less than impressed. They have a ton of selection but nothing exceptional - worth a shot if you're looking for year-round locals but otherwise there are plenty of other places nearby with a more eclectic selection. (1,234 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)
