Was in the Gaslamp district of San Diego so had a chance to visit for dinner. We arrived at about 5 pm on a Thursday, so was not busy at all, although it got very busy as the evening went on. As previously mentioned there are lots of beers on tap, I counted 115 on the beer menu. Most are indeed local west cost beers so the only downside is not a great selection of international beers. Also, I could not find one example of a Belgian style strong ale on the menu with all those beers. We sampled 8 different beers for a dollar each for a 4 oz glass, and then finally ordered a pint of the favorite of the lot. The service was great, with a very chatty waitress who knew most of the beers and had tried many of them. The music was a bit loud for conversation, but not too bad. Given we were there during happy hour (between 4-6) we found the prices very reasonable. Pints of beer were $3 and most appitizers were half price. A very good experience, I'd go again when in town.

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.

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

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
