Default The Yard House?

Hey, so has anyone ever been to one of these? Looks like they have a ton in California, Texas, Arizona and other states. They are putting one here in MA and I am wondering if it is any good. They say they have more beer on tap than anyone else out there.

We just ate there (San Antonio, TX) Saturday night for Valentines Day with some friends. Great food and the beer selection was awesome!

We'll definately be going back.

They have a great beer selection, with styles that you would not typically find. They generally keep their lines clean, though I have had 1 or 2 beers that have had diacetyl issues (a Fullers London Pride and another English brew - definitely difficult beers to keep pristine if they aren't heavy turners). This is definitely a place I go out of my way to go to when I'm in West Palm beach, as they have good beer, good food, and Florida has more bars with poorly tended kegs/beer lines than anywhere I've ever been.

My wife and her friend fell in love with the Youngs Chocolate Stout. (Guess whose been researching Chocolate stout recipes ever since.) We didn't try it, but I noticed they even have a draft beer float on their desert lineup using it and vanilla ice cream. Maybe next time.

I got taken to one in AZ and it rocked. I got to play host and ordered each round for everyone.

They don't have any in Oregon. To me this says they can't hack it in Beervana.

On the far wall, there were huge windows displaying their cold room with kegs upon kegs upon kegs (me=kid in candy store). Then there were huge pipes going from the cold room over head and down into the bar in the center. I mentioned to the wife that I envisioned one day having something similar piped into our kitchen... she didn't seem as enthusiastic for some reason.

I've been to three Yardhouses, and they're all good. The beer selection is always good, the food is also good, albeit a tad over priced. Try the mac n cheese!
