great place, bad customer service, great service, cold atrocious food, pleasant girl servers, big screens, pricey drinks
I would come back. They've got this good omelet w/ feta, that went down nicely with a beer. And yes, I am a lush. Overall, I had fun watching Tom Brady get injured while getting plastered at a questionable time of day. I would come back.
i love going to this place. I love going to this place to watch boxing fights. I remember the first time I went to this place was with a friend to watch Manny P. fight Marquez and I was impressed by the fact that the place not only provided with a several big screens to watch the fight, there was also no altercations with the fans in the room. I think this was partly because there were armed security guards at every entrance. This place is real cool to watch sporting events at.
The best pizza in L.A.. This place seriously has the best pizza in L.A. I went with a bunch of girlfriends last night and we were seated right away. Although our waitress was a bit airheaded and forgot about us, she was sweet and polite.
tasted soo good. came here to watch the 2nd half of a playoffs game, but just shared dessert. They had like 4 Huge screen were they were playing the game. we just walked in and found seats and were just watching the game...we didnt even order our food til it was over. The Yankee Churros filled churros topped with vanilla bean ice cream and fluffy whipped cream. The churros themselves were smaller than i thought, but that ice cream tasted soo good, it was that vanilla bean!
I will be back. I had come here many years before, but then came again yesterday (May 7th, 2011.) My boyfriend and I went for lunch and the outside seating was what we wanted. I got our name in for an outside table. They quoted me about 10 minutes. We had plenty to look at to distract us but I ran in to use the restroom and in that time apparently they called our name but someone else came to take our table. Bad karma and let me just ask, wasn't there a movie about why you shouldn't take someone else's table (Date Night?)??? Anyways, we sat and took about 15 minutes to figure out what we wanted, mainly because the conversation was so good. The server was very patient with us and sweet. We finally ordered and I got the Broadway Burger and my guy got the Texas Burger. I LOVED mine, and he seemed happy too. Waited a bit for some iced tea but like I said, good conversation made the time seem insignificant. We were able to get in and out in a timely manner, the server was polite, the food was good and the overall atmosphere of sitting outside along the Promenade was rad. I will be back!
Such a fun place!. This is such a fun place! Played some pool did some people watching. Although I am not a drinker, this place was a fun time and the crowd was lively.
Pretty cool. This place is pretty cool. The place itself is awesome, the interior is chill and it leads to great nights of pool playing. The price is decent. The thing that really drops it down is that it's at the Promenade. Parking costs money after 6 and can suck. A lot of tourists are there, which can get really annoying. But the staff is friendly, so that's good.
Pretty cheap and always a good time!. I'm not really sure why YD got such bad reviews - I've always had a great time here! This place is a bar/pool hall type place, so don't expect too much from the food here! I've ordered many of their finger foods and they've been just fine! I mainly come here for Happy Hour, to watch games, or to play games with friends. There's so much to do here! I like to hang out downstairs where there are about 8 pool tables, 2 dart boards (bring/purchase your own darts), a foosball table, a basketball arcade game, and some other random arcade games. At night, they also play music and you can dance around. There's also a TV next to every pool table, so pretty much any game that is airing will be playing here. I've also seen a private room at one end - I assume parties can book it (pool table, nicer larger TVs, and bar stools/tables). They have a wide selection of beer and lots of interesting shooters. YD is pretty cheap and always a good time!
Time to have a little fun.... My friend and I were having a wonderful morning at 3rd Street Promenade and with the help of the City of Santa Monica Ambassador, Luis, we were directed to Yankee Doodles. Time to have a little fun and forget somethings before the work week starts. Yankee Doodles is located on the south end close to the Santa Monica Mall. We came about 10 minutes before 11am and they had not open yet. So we bought some time walking around and came back...lol. I guess we were that eager to get in. We seated ourselves at the bar with our wonderful hostess Tania. I won't go into details what was ordered, but what would you do at the bar?! I don't know how much time we spent in there, but it was enough to forget. I remember getting Spanish Artichoke Dip and it was good. The chips were pretty big. I had to keep breaking it part to smaller pieces...Yes, portion control in some sense. I have no idea what my friend had, but I know I got a piece of it. This place has at least six billiard tables, a whole lot of flatscreen TVs, and plenty of seating. Since we were there the whole time, I was wondering where the crowd was. They were sitting outside...lol. I guess I was really out of it. The bathrooms are in the back, but for some reason, it seemed like it was a long walk to get there. Looks like I have lost my detailed writing skills. However, there are just somethings I shouldn't even mention. I had a good time at Yankee Doodles or did I? I don't even remember what happened anymore. Fun Times in Santa Monica.
I will return next time I am back. The food here is typical bar food. Nothing special but they offer ginormous beers so I am happy with this place. I also met a hot Cougar and noticed that this place seems to have Cougar bar potential. They also offer Pyramid Hefeweizen on tap so I will return next time I am back.
