This Yard House has been here for years. It still looks great inside and the food and service are solid. The menu has a lot of great options. The Poke Nachos are unique and very well seasoned. The turkey club is a solid choice but note the bread is not sourdough, and it is a bit on the sweet side. The Nashville chicken and sweet potato pancakes are a great savory option. It is similar to a chicken and waffles dish but with a bit of heat.
Pretty much a basic sports bar but for rich people. Nothing special about anything really. The waiter didn't write down our order so that was a set up for delayed food right off the bat. Forgot things often. Never received condiments (not even salt or anything) One busser gave us extra napkins, but the waiter quickly took those back for some reason. L Paid with gift cards, they only applied one and tried throwing the others away without even using them! Bathrooms definitely could use cleaning, you can't hear yourself think...let alone the waiter to order, horrible lighting for eating (but good for watching sports)
My Daughter just turned 21 this past week and her Aunt and her friend took her here last night to celebrate. She just explained to me her experience to me this morning and I was really surprised to here what she told me because I took her here just last week for lunch on her birthday and we had a grear experience. Unfortunately the bartender "Gregory" she had serving her last night was horrible. I'm writing this review because I don't want any other parent to have their adult children go through what she had to go through last night with this bartender. Turning 21 is supposed to be a great experience. As a family we have always loved going to the Yard House because thier establishment treats thier customers with a 5 star service every time. That's why we go here. The service is the key. Sure your going to have days the food or drinks may not be perfect but the service always makes up for it. That's the Yard House way. I'm not going to go into details of what happened but the bottom line is that we're not going back to this location any longer. Having a bartender like him working here is not what we expected from this place.
Parking was kinda a challenge to find and then when we parked it was hard to find the restaurant. But besides that the food and service was good. Our server Justin was very attentive.
The beverage selection is still amazing, as always. The food is good but I miss some items that have been removed or replaced. If you're just there for drinks, it's worth the compromise as the appetizer menu is still pretty decent. Our server barely came around. I would suggest sitting close to the bar, as those servers seem to be more on top of things.
The service was great! The food was delicious and the drinks were fantastic. I would recommend this place to anyone who loves beer and food. This is my go to place when I need to get away for a night with friends and/or family. I am always treated like family by both management and staff. A great addition to the Newport area.
Appetizers and food were amazing. Poke salad was fantastic. Virtually no wait on Saturday 8/7/21 Ahi salad (not pictured ) has way too much dressing, had to toss it sadly. Garlic noodles too sweet
Great costumer service, friendly staff, and great food! The steaks are definitely over priced compare to its quality. Their fried chicken sandwich is excellent, and you must try it! It?s juicy and delicious! I would also highly recommend you to try their tomato soup! Probably the best tomato soup you can find! Overall, Yard House is a good restaurant, but some of their items are overpriced!
