So the applebee's of beer joints has made it to Las Vegas, however the luxury of personally knowing that the GM and a regular floor manager are exceptionally competent at their gig, I knew I had to check this place out more than a few times before posting a review.

All the things you'd expect from a mainstream establishment, GordonBiersh'esque stainless steel interior with well thought out art and ambiance lighting, outdoor seating, and essentially a wonderful dining environment. Even when extremely busy the traffic tends to surround only the bar patrons, and therefore most table diners are left alone. The food is excellent, and in my opinion as it should be, as all kinks with the menu should have been ironed out in the CA stores, among other locales as well.

The only qualm with this establishment is, since I'm assuming it is similar to other mainstream dining venues, is that it is susceptible to a high turnover rate among employees and therefore the training and overall beer knowledge (I'm leaving dining out of this review...)is often shoddy. In the four times I've drank at the Vegas location the bartender/server has never heard of or understood the concept of the following: Oatmeal Stout, A Belgian Trappist, A Belgian Lambic, and even refused to pour a new drink in replacement for the stale and obviously outdated Ephemere that was set in front of my date.

Judge as you wish, and feel free to consider me a grumpy gent with a sore eye for mainstream establishments, however upon granting this place more than three attempts I know I like this place more for its dining. This is beer advocate after all, correct?

I could have sworn I put in a review of this place back in Jun 2014, but.....

(Visited 06/2014): A buddy and I visted at least 3 places on this trip.

Very nice place, yeah definitely a sports bar feel. Very good on-tap list, they had some specials going on I remember. The bartender actually knew something about beer I remember. The place was packed, lots of families. We sat at the bar. I had at least the 120 Minute DFH on tap.

They had a great menu, but unfortunately the first 4 items we ordered they were out of. They told us they were in the process of updating the beer menu so it was just bad timing for us. Still we had good beers and the food was incredible. Don't leave without trying the ala cart taco's. We had one of each and they were all fresh and delicious. Even the kids food was really good.

We will definitely go back next time we are in Vegas.

This was the least favorite of the three locations in Vegas that I visited during a recent trip. It was crowded, had a din and didn't have the vibe of the other two locations.

(Visited 08/2011): This Yard House location is in the relatively new Town Square mall on the south side off 15/215. Parking is plentiful all around.

The interior is laid out similarly to other Yard House locations, with the circular bar right in the center. The rest of the space features dark wood with booths and tables. TVs are plentiful behind the bar, lending to an upscale sports bar feel.

Yard House's tap list exceeds 100, with many regional craft brewers represented, such as Firestone Walker (who provides the "Yard House" brand beers), Tenaya Creek, Deschutes and Stone. The bottle selection is pretty much nonexistent.

Service at the bar was friendly as the bartenders use a tag team approach. They were all friendly and kept up with sample requests and refills.

Food at Yard House is consistently good. My colleagues and I shared several appetizers and they were all solid.

Overall you know what you are going to get with Yard House, which is both a positive and a negative. While the beer list is dominated by common and/or bland macros, you can always count on finding something good. Worth a stop for anyone visiting the area.

Went with a group from our company while in town. The keg room is the first thing you notice when entering. Kegs upon kegs upon kegs packed into this room! They stated they had 147 beers to choose from. Almost a little overwhelming and more choices than you need. Most of the beers were nothing special, almost all year round beers. But if your in town, a good selection of beers in the area.

The food was really good. Had the nights special of Mahi-Mahi. The table got some deserts, one was a framboise float. Interesting desert. Service was ok, they were pretty busy that night. Our waitress was pretty knowledgeable on the beer selection and quick with recommendations.

Nice place to go and hang out for drinks and dinner. If your tired of the strip, the Yard House and Town Square are a nice change of pace.
