Dropped by here a couple of times over our trip to SD, as it was quite close to our hotel.

A: Very "cool" atmosphere, or at least trying to be. Dark, lots of booths, pretty people to sit you. A large wrap around bar in the center of it all.

Q+Selection: Well... in terms of numbers it's obviously high (what, 120 taps I think?). But really, in the grand scheme of things, other than a few beers there's nothing here that's going to jump out at you... and I'm from New Brunswick, for crying out loud. A lot of the beers I've had on more basic U.S. beer trips. But, it was nice to be able to try a couple of beers that I've tried to clone since and can't get. I don't know about freshness though... the Mirror Pond I had seemed a little off.

Service: Served fast, asked if we wanted another when we were empty, but that's it. They WERE very busy both times, though.

O: I wouldn't seek it out, but if you're crawling in the area... you'll easily find something there that you'd like to drink.

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
