Stopped by here for lunch on my way to meet the wife at the end her marathon.
Kind of an uppity feeling place, with lots of beers and waitstaff wearing the same black clothes. Beer selection was good, but the staff wasn't too informed. They even had yards available, which was cool, but, quite fittingly the ones I saw filled were done so with such "high quality" beverages as BMC.
Atmosphere-Like I said uppity, and I was wearing vacation clothes- basically a Cheap Trick shirt, khaki shorts and sandals.
Quality- I tried about 4 beers and they were all good, although the Anchor Old Foghorn seemed a bit off.
Service-Prompt, but relatively uninformed.
Selection- Relly good, and pretty cool that they have alot of smaller local brews on tap as well. Kind of disappointing that they have so much allegiance to the big three, though.
Food- Pretty good, but way overpriced.

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
