I've visited this establishment a few times as it's very close to where I work. As you walk in, you walk by a glass window through which you can see the tons of kegs that they have for the beers on the menu.
The selection of beers is diverse, eclectic, interesting, and high quality. I would highly recommend going with a designated driver because they have some very interesting high abv Belgian Strong Ales.
The food is also amazing, but a little pricy. My favorite is the sushi roll (yes…singular). It is really one giant roll, served as an appetizer I believe, but is more than enough to stand as a meal.
The servers there have always been friendly and fast.

I'm actually surprised by all the love this place is getting on BA. While the selection is the best you get anywhere, the food is way overpriced and not that good, and the three times I went both myself and my girlfriend our beers felt and tasted like they'd been tapped a month prior. Even things you'd think would sell like crazy (the last time I went I ordered a Sierra Nevada Pale Ale) were undercarbonated and bad.
I guess when you want selection on tap you're going to be sacrificing quality but for my money I'll just be headed out to buy bottles to take home.

Went here on a busy Saturday night out. The Yard House may be a chain and it's located in a huge "open air lifestyle center" on the suburban fringe of the city, but I really didn't mind too much. A bit uncharacteristic of me. Not a free seat at the bar. Somehow got a huge booth for two of us in about 10 min. after we expected a long wait. My first was a Deschutes Mirror Pond Ale. My wife, fan of wheats, had the Breckenridge Agave Wheat. On a tip from a friend who had been to Breckenridge Brewery recently, had a Vanilla Porter...awesome. Finished post-dinner with some of my first local beers from Four Peaks, 8th St. Ale and Kiltlifter, and loved them both. The beer selection was enormous and walking around the giant oval bar just checking out the tap handles, I felt like a kid in a candy store. Expecting food on par with that of Applebee's or Chili's, I was pleasantly surprised. Steak salad came with plenty of delicious strips of steak and it was huge. A burger and sweet potato fries was tasty and hit the spot, matching well with beers. Plenty of TV's around for sports-watching or whatever as well, and not really a bad seat in the house.

This is the future of craft beer in America, a commercialized profitable way of bringing it to market. 100 taps in industrial steel bar, and covering pipes, trained who can move around. Smething for everybody, very crowded at night with 7 minute wait despite speed. Classic rock, who can argue with that? Fast service during the day, and you can get away from set samplers. Big quantity orders. The house beers, despite being brewed by Firestone, were rather ho-hum, they can do better. If you are on the cutting edge of craft beer, if you are part of that growing small and mostly young group, there are other excellent smaller places for you, some of which will survive. If you are a mainstream average beer drinker out there not a geek, this is the future of where you will drink beer.And that's The Word.

this is an oasis in the desert. with 114 taps, i can easily forgive their false claim of "world's largest selection of draft beer." at least 20 taps are crap, and several more are run of the mill, but that still leaves a big selection. brands like green flash (excellent ipa!), anderson valley, bear republic, dogfish head, and stone. impressive display of taps. large selection of appetizers, including sushi. this is a fun place, popular but not crowded. but at $5.50 a pint, try to visit during happy hour.

Out of the norm for me but I liked it. If you have been to an Old Chicago, it is along those lines. The servers were excellent!!! The beer selection was good. I expected a vast selection of Butt and Poors products but was disproved immediately. I sat down, opened the menu and saw Rogue Old Crusty 06 amongst the selection and many Washington beers that were just my flavor. I was pleased with the food as well. Th manager looks like Fabio and so that had me laughing after a few brewskys. It is in an outdoor mall with a movie theater outisde. Great place for a weekend getaway. Went back two more times before I left and will keep going back.

Took the family out for dinner to the Yard House at Desert Ridge on Tatum last evening.
Arrived at 8 and waited for 30 minutes for a booth that could accommodate 5 people. While waiting I was able to peer through the windows into the huge keg room that accommodates the 120 beers, which is very impressive.
Ordered: Salads, Burgers, Crab Cakes as entrees and the food and service was very good. Got the familiar deer in the headlights look from our server when I had a few questions on their beers. In the future I swear I will not bother. The desserts of Lemon Soufflé and Crème Brulee were outstanding.
To the beer: I ordered a snifter of Rogue Old Crusty and my daughter had the Strongbow Hard Cider. Both were delivered ice cold so cold that I had to wait 15 -20 minutes with my hands warming the snifter before it had warmed enough to a proper temperature to drink.
Their happy hour is the time to go, as their prices are a bit steep. I only had the one beer as I was not up to taking the time to warm up a pint of another beer.

The Yard House located at the Westgate City Center has a large seating area, inside and out, parking is not a problem, with parking lot B just a short stroll from the front door. 113 taps, selection, amazingly only 8 of these are macros, majority craft beers with a fair to middling export selection. Staff was courteous, fairly knowledgeable, and the service good, as this joint was a hoppin on Saturday afternoon. Food menu standard restaurant/pub fare, prices a bit pricey, beer prices also a bit high, but hey, you pay for ambiance, selection, location and quality.

We dropped in on a Friday night recently, and luckily we called ahead. The place was packed and there were were dozens of people waiting around holding pagers that would indicate a table was ready. But since we'd called ahead, we were seated immediately.
The music was a bit loud, but you could still hold a conversation. I thought the food (southern fried chicken) was very good, and my wife (greek salad) thought it was just OK. The brownie sundae is a must-have, even though you'll be bloated afterward.
The server was pretty knowledgable and came back to the table reasonably often, though it did take several minutes for her to bring drinks when they were ordered. The place was packed though, to be fair, and she never abandoned us.
The food menu was quite varied for a place like this, and with 120 beers on tap, you'd have to be pretty darn picky to complain.
For two dinners, three beers, and two deserts, the tab came to over $70, which is steep. Again, the food and drinks were very good, but that's the kind of price you'd expect to pay at a place that doesn't have TVs on the wall and loud music. A nice treat, but a little too rich to visit very often.

Stopped in for a beer on 10/24/06.
Very trendy, as you walk in you can look to your left (through some windows) and see the 100 kegs, tapped and waiting for you. Large, almost warehouse like open area, with a big oval shaped bar towards the rear. I was there at an off hour, so fairly quiet.
Quality of my beer was fine. Age old question of how likely is that to be across 100 kegs?
Service was prompt and seemed to be knowledgeable.
Selection, as mentioned, was large. My issue with it is that, although large, there was little that was exceptional about it. My guess is that to try to prevent loss, they stay away from the more expensive/more rare varieties of beer. I was in Chicago a few weeks back, and had a harder time making my choice between the 11 taps at The Map Room.
I can't comment on food, but the selections on the menu looked pretty good.
My afternoon beer (a Kona Firerock Pale Ale) was $5, so I'm calling it a bit pricey.
