This is as good as it gets for a New Hampshire boy. Over a 140 on tap, excellent food, and a knowledgeable staff. Will always hold this as the place all others need to match.

Very close to Fenway and packed on game day. Great place to get a beer on game day.

Love this place. Great food, great beer list. Many, many taps. It gets a little crowded & can be pricey but there's a reason for that.

Amazing beer selection. It's huge and nearly overwhelming. Food is decent pub fare. Place can be kind of a hassle because of the Fenway crowd, but it's a good choice.

This Yard house is located about 5 minutes from Fenway Park, making it a worthy destination, either before and after a Red Sox game.

Yard house has a good model and they follow it in all their locations. Tons of beers on tap (over 100) mostly craft selections. Large central bar, friendly service, large and modern feeling with an open floor plan, attentive service, crowd pleasing and tasty food, decent prices. I like the fact that they have a large semi outdoor area here, as well as a true out door area and a seperate outdoor bar.

Real nice place for a few beers and a bite before or after the game, also a good place to watch the game on their multiple large flat screens. Dont expect any beer rarities, but do expect an extensove list of the good stuff, including local craft options on tap.

Crowd pleasing is the operative term here, although I must mention that my 85 y.o. father wasnt crazy about the sound level of the music, so keep that in mind if you are out on the town with a senior citizen like I was.
