Atmosphere is always fairly up beat, noise levels moderate to high, range of drinkers and diners, bit of a safe bet / consistent local drinking / light dining hole I suspect. Service was mostly good. Outdooor heaters makes it nice for winter sitting - bit less hustle and bustle if that is something you seek. Dining range is great and... More

It seemed such a cool place from the outside and because of that we invited some friends to watch a football game at the restaurant. We've got so disappointed: - the service was so slow and unapologetic. They have no focus on service. It took us 20 min to have an iced tea. - food was greasy, soggy, expensive for... More

The Yard House is a fun place to meet friends to have a meal together or meet for a cocktail. Yuppy type food, very good. Nice servers. Crowded most of the time.

We went during Veteran's Day weekend on a visit to Newport Beach. The restaurant was very busy, but we only had to wait about 10 minutes as it was later in the evening. Service was good and the waitress offered some sample of different beers that we were interested in. My food was delicious and hot when we were served.... More

Exceptional food and Pomegranate Martini's. We really enjoyed the Blue Crab Cakes, Moo Shu Egg Rolls, Spinach Cheese Dip and Spicy Tuna Roll. A little more expensive than most Happy Hours at other restaurants but it was well worth the extra cost. I wish they would extend their Happy Hour to include the weekends.

After the horrible service at the Hyatt Regency down the street, we needed a break!Reservations were made for a party of 8 and the hostess could not find it, because when it was made over the phone, one letter was written wrong and that was really confusing to her. After sounding it out and pointing out how close phonetically it... More

What can I say... Another good chain eatery with lots of screens, lots of noise, an eclectic menu and wonderful servers. I know it's amazing to complain, so I won't, but the Yard House is never memorable and never horrible. It's just a good meal with friends, fun sports theme, lots of laughs, but only mediocre chain food. I will... More

We took an outdoor table because we had our dog but it was in full sun...too hot. I ordered the California Ruben and it was not good. I've had a lot of Ruben sandwiches over the years and this was my least favorite. I had the two crab cakes, they were too small and not that tasty. My husband ordered... More
