The $3.25 pints at Happy Hour saved this place from a bad review

Cannot get St. Bernardus ABT 12 anywhere else for this price on tap

Also have Ayinger Celebrator Dopplebock, both Brother David series beers from Anderson Valley, and Maresdous 8 Dubbel

Food was really disappointing, appetizers are expensive, small, and below average in taste

Service is bad when its busy because they only have 2 bartenders working a 360 degree bar

Lots of businessmen hang out here and have meetings

Inside the Irvine Spectrum across from a comedy venue

Happy Hour is awesome, but everything else is not recommended here

As an East Coaster, I arrived at happy hour in this West Coast establishment. HH is 3-6 Pm. What in the hell is THAT all about. Good for me, but that has to suck for everyone else living and working in California. As such, the place was relatively empty at the hour I was there, so I was treated to good service and good prices. My ratings influence/reflect that. I am left to wonder if all that changes once the place gets busier and the hour increases, as I was beginning to experience before I left. Still, 100 beers on tap? You cannot argue too much with the selection.

I usually make it to the Yard House at the Spectrum every time I'm in Irvine, and I'm always glad I made the stop. It's definitely got a chain-restaurant atmosphere, but it's also the most pub-like place I've been in Irvine, and I like the dim lights, dark wood, long bar and TVs offered in the place.

The beer list is long indeed, but doesn't offer anything terribly rare or exotic, with a few exceptions. I had the house Amber Tripel on my last visit, and was quite impressed with it; I would be inclined to try more of their house offerings next time.

It's really a restaurant as much as a bar, and the service reflected that. The staff seemed well-trained and were friendly and competent. The food is good, and while I thought it was a little bit pricey, it's probably well in-line for Irvine cost-of-living.
