Yard House in Irvine

The bar at Yardhouse is a gargantuan island situated in the middle of the restaurant. That’s a good note to start a restaurant review on, isn’t it? The beer selection here is mind-numbingly awesome, with page-upon-page devoted to it in the menu. Servers know to leave at least one menu at the table in case diners want re-strategize their selections.
Speaking of the menu, ordering at the Yardhouse is a pretty safe bet. I have never had anything here that I didn’t love. For this occasion I decided on the ahi salad, and Dave sided with a soup and sandwich lunch special.
So, let’s start with my salad. We’ve got a nice plate of crisp, verdant greens. Lots of great texture here, it’s all very crispy and wet. Fresh is the word that keeps popping into my mind. The Ahi itself is stunning. These are thinly-sliced little jewels of goodness. They have a deep ruby color, and the outside has a generous coating of spices and seasonings. The flavor is mild and delicate, as good Tuna should be. Overall, the fish and salad come together to make for a very light, satisfying lunch. The dressing is a soy-based, vaguely Asian-tasting invention that would work in a lot of dishes.
Dave’s sandwich was a crab cake hoagie, with bacon and crusty bread. Accompanying it was a cup of hot clam chowder. The sandwich was crisp and flaky from the bread, which balanced the richness of the crab cake nicely. Bacon just makes everything taste better.
Overall, Yardhouse provides an open, inviting place to eat with a great selection of beers and a diverse menu. It’s one of my favorite restaurants.

It's all about the happy hour beer

Wow, I’m surprised not more people have reviewed this place, as it is always packed with locals and college students during night time happy hours.

The Yard House brewery is home to many domestic and special beers. I used to come here before when I was under 21 for the food though, so I didn’t start drinking the beers until recently.

The food is good, especially at happy hour prices which have 1/2 off pizzas, as I recall. During the most recent trip I got a Thai chicken pizza (5/5, very tasty!), onion ring tower appetizer, and Chicken Enchalada stack (split between me and my friend). They were all very tasty and quality was excellent. The servers must have incredible patience because we were a huge group (20+) and he+she were both very nice. For the beer I ordered a “Rose Garden”, a very fruity beer (Hey, don’t judge it was suggested by one of the group members lol… lots of people got it!). It was a mixture of Hef? + some red concoction. Tasted delicious haha.

I really like the Yard House, especially coming here after a long project or meeting or something to celebrate!

They never disappoint

Who knew bar food could be so divine. As restaurant snobs we still tend to be drawn back and back again to the Yard House.


They have added a new wasabi /soy sauce that looks like a moot around the giant roll. A little goes along way. Also what was changed was the size of the tuna . Now a little larger did prefer it cut smaller. Edaname firm and fresh


Haven’t really eaten a california roll since the 90’s but I heard they were good here. Nothing “Krabby” about this giant roll. Fresh, with just the right amount of mayo. Presentation beautiful …would definitely order again. But a little sick of the same wasabi/soy sauce river around the second roll we ordered
