Best place for beer – If you like to drink beer, you have to check out this place!
Greeat Location, LB. – Id' have to agree w/most of the comments below. I had a very difficult time getting my waitress to come and simply check up on us. Also, I didn't understand why she insisted on holding a credit card, especially considering that none of the other yard house locations do such a thing. When I asked her for the card back so I knew what I would be paying and splitting w/my party she gave me a hard time. I don't think I'll be dinning there again any time soon.
nice place – This is located in a very nice part in Long Beach. The locals are all very cool and the employees are nice as well. They were very helpful in assisting me choose a beer to drink. The beer selection was bananas! Ive never seen so many beers on tap in my life. I'm coming back real soon.
The cost of this establishment is too high for just ?fair? food and ?poor? service. – I had heard that the Yard House had great food and was a fun place to eat. I went to two different locations on different dates. The first was Brea. The food was okay, just average. What was most frustrating was the service. We were celebrating a birthday. I wanted to treat my guests to drinks, but getting our server to come to our table was almost impossible. The next visit was to Long Beach. This time the food was disappointing. We ordered sliders. One had an adequate amount of beef. The others were pitiful. Basically, we were paying for bread and fries. Once again, the most difficult situation was getting attention from our server. As I looked around the room, I noticed I wasn?t the only one trying to get his attention. I don't blame the staff. The Yard House doesn't seem to plan adequately for the crowds in there establishments. That's it for me. I have decided the cost of this establishment is too high for just ?fair? food and ?poor? service.
Quantity over quality – I didn't have any food here, so I can't comment on that. However, I did order two beers, one was clearly not what I ordered and the other was flat and tasteless. The real problem was the condescending waitress who lectured me about how Fuller?s ESB and London Pride look and taste exactly the same, even after I had explained that I had a case of each at home. But to their credit, they didn?t charge me for that mistake, and I didn?t bother to mention the replacement was flat and tasteless? didn?t want to hear another lecture.
Great place to eat! – My favorite is their Chilean Sea Bass over steamed rice with edamame, bokchoy and soy ginger sauce, always perfectly cooked and it's very, very good. I don't really eat steaks anymore and I'd oftentimes settle for their shrimp or chicken vege bowls. The veges are always perfectly cooked and so yummy with shiitake mushrooms. For appetizers, try their Hawaiian Poke and don't forget to ask for a side of their wasabi soy. It's drizzled all around the poke but you do need more to really enjoy this dish. Sometimes I would just settle for poke and their Walnut Pear Salad for an early lunch. For dessert, try their fresh baked brownies with mint chocolate chip ice cream on top.
GOOD FOOD CRAZY ETHICS – THE YARD HOUSE EXPERIENCE: I DON'T HAVE ANYTHING NEGATIVE TO SAY ABOUT THE YARD HOUSE, BUT THE CONSTANT REQUEST FOR MY CREDIT CARD WAS KILLING ME...WHEN WE FIRST GOT THERE THE STAFF NEEDED TO HOLD MY CREDIT CARD UNTIL WE WERE SEATED, O'KAY FINE. I GOT MY CARD BACK, THEN THE STAFF CAME AND ASKED MY PARTY FOR A CREDIT CARD TO HOLD UNTIL WE FINISHED DINING AND PAID OUR BILL...MMM, LEADS ME TO BELIEVE THAT THEY HAVE BEEN STIFFED BEFORE TO PUT IT MILDLY...I HAD A PARTY OF 12 PEOPLE AND WE SPENT A GOOD AMOUNT OF MONEY, NOT TO MENTION THE GRATUITY THAT WAS ADDED ON THE BILL...SO BACK TO THE CREDIT CARD REQUESTS THROUGHOUT THE ENTIRE NIGHT, DIDN'T SIT WELL WITH ME...AS THE BILL WAS BEING PAID IN CASH ANOTHER WAITER CAME TO ASK TO HOLD A CREDIT CARD UNTIL THE TRANSACTION WAS COMPLETED WITH THE CASH PAYMENT, BIZZARE...WHAT WAS WITH THAT? IT WAS MY BIRTHDAY AND THEY MADE ME FEEL AS IF OUR BUSINESS WASN'T APPRECIATED...I HAD A VERY MILD-MANNERED GROUP THAT LOVE THE PLACE AND THE FOOD & DRINKS, JUST NOT THE WAY WERE BEING TREATED...HOLD A CREDIT CARD WHILE WE PROCESS YOUR CASH TRANSACTION? IT WASN'T COUNTERFEIT MONEY , I PROMISE WE ALL HAVE REALLY GOOD JOBS AND WE SPENT A LOT OF MONEY THAT NIGHT AT THE BAR AND AT THE TABLE....IT LEFT ME FEELING LIKE I WAS A SUSPECT FOR DINE AND DASH.....
Management may have potential racism issues – On Saturday Sept 22nd 2007, I visited the Yardhouse to have a few drinks and celebrate a friends birthday. During the course of the evening, apparently the management had some trouble with an Indian(east Indian) patron, and decided to cut him off from purchasing any more alcohol. However the punitive action didnt end there. The management also summarily cut off any person in the restaurant who was Indian or looked Indian from purchasing any alcohol. The rationale being that we would buy beer and pass it off to those who were cut off. I am an Indian and had no affiliation with the trouble makers, however because of my ethnic makeup, I was also denied service. My girlfriend who is caucausian however, was served freely and without hinderance. I dont believe the yardhouse condones this type of behaviour, however they have a terrible problem in their backyard, in the form of a manager who may have race issues. Upon talking to the staff, who were very apologetic, I came to find out that the majority of the staff despise the manager, and were in agreement with my assesment of the situation. If you are black, hispanic, asian, be warned, you may find a 60s era jim crow experience if you choose to patronize the Yardhouse in Long Beach.
too crowded – the yardhouse is great and fun...i mean how many different kinds of beers can one choose from! but there is a long wait, especially on the weekends...but what do you expect....parking is only free for first two hours but hope that you get in before....other than that, its a great atmosphere with tons of fun, if you are going with the right people..no party downers
pirrat beer served here!!! – everythinig i've tried here, food and drink, has been REALLY good. much better than the average bar food. a bit on the loud side at times, but a good after work scene.
