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.
