I've been to other Yard House's and have enjoyed my experience at each. Now that I'm more into Belgian and other brews typically not available on tap, the fact that YH apparenlty has the most on tap anywhere doesn't necessarily blow me away like it used to. That basically sums up my experience at the San Diego location. Nice, clean and attractive atmoshere. The obligatory curved-rectangualar bar with the multitude of taps in the center. Maybe it's the uniform appearance and lack of warmth of these places that detract from the experience. It's not "homie" like one expects in a quality beer bar. Anyway, a helpful and friendly young guy behind the bar made a few suggestions to my business associate. I had a Stone Arrogant Bastard to start. We only hung around for one more round. Good location as it was only a few blocks from the hotel. Again, I won't even bother talking about selection since it's obviously incredible. Many California brews and a few I can't get here in the northeast. Nice atmosphere. Close proximity to the Gaslight District. Worth a visit but not the ideal beer bar in my humble opinion. (1,117 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)
