This place is pricey, pricey, pricey, but boy is it good! Wow! Over 200 beers on tap!? Are you kidding me? THe atmosphere is amazing. Parked out in front when I went was a Bentley and a Ferrari, thats how Scottsdale is. THey even have an alphabetical checklist of beers that you can check off like an old baseball card. Ive been here 6 times and Im only on the F's. The food is great, Id recommend the calamari or artichoke. All in all this is one of the cooler venues around East Phoenix area. Make sure you wear your good clothes, this is a nice joint!

I hit this place while on a business trip to Scottsdale. It was within a mile of my hotel and easily walkable. The food was great, we got a couple appetizers and then I had an excellent pepper jack burger.
The beer selection is second to no place that I have been to. Understand that I live in West Virginia and our idea of a beer bar is one that has both Bud and Bud Light on tap. But be that as it may, this place has a LOT of beers on tap. 113 on the night of 1/11/07. It's a pretty trendy place in a very affluent area, and prices are reflective of that. Happy hour and late night are pretty reasonable, $3.25/pt (or a smaller goblet of some of the bigger beers). But after that it's $5.95. I'm pretty sure the prices are the same for anything you get. From BMC to Chimay.
Obviously they have so many beers that a list would be pointless. Check out the website. I thought all the beers were fresh. The bartender said that the lines are cleaned any time a keg is changed. They have an awesome keg room you can see into with about a dozen cooled pipes going up and over to the bar area, each of which must have several beer lines in it.
There is supposedly a 200 tap location elsewhere in the area, and they are building a 500 tap location in Vegas. I tried the following (not in this order):
Stone Pale Ale*
Young's Double Chocolate Stout
Mirror Pond Pale Ale
DFH 60 Minute
*first time I had it.
As I said, all were fresh and all were good. Temp maybe a little cold but they warm up quickly.
The waitress knew enough about the beers to help out the complete noobs, but it was plain she was not an expert. There were several gents behind the bar, which we retired to after dinner. They were a bit more knowledgeable, but when I asked if they had any barleywines he started talking about wine. When I told him barleywine was a style of beer he said they didn't have any. All minor offenses though. This place is hopping, lots of sports on the TVs, beer is good, food is great, etc. I gave a $$ for value since if you average the prices of regular and happy hour prices it's not too bad.

This place is a great place to try out. It is unbelievable how many draft beers they have. It really bothered me that they didn't have any flights and at 6 bucks a beer it was a bit of a disappointment I couldn't try them all. They have windows to their keg cooler which was quite a site. Almost interesting to see just how they run the lines to the kegs, yet alone the 200 kegs. The food is mediocre, but a bit better priced than the beers. I definitely recommend trying this one out, expecially if you would like to try some craft beers on draft.

Visited late on a Sunday night after a terrible day of traveling from the east coast. I needed food and beer. Yard House was a welcome oasis.
A - Nice open, clean, well lit, but not too bright. I like the all metal bar top.
Q - No complaints.
S - I was literally the only person at the bar, so service was excellent. Had a good conversation with the bartender (Drew) about beer, politics, and back east. Food came quickly and as ordered.
S - Excellenet selection. Something for everyone.
F - I had the ribeye, with garlic mash potatoes and lightly sauted green beans. The manager warned me that he thought the ribeye could be cut better and that I should get the fillet. Not a fillet fan, went with the ribeye. My expectations were not steak house high. The steak was fine, considering all the yummy beer available. The green beans were actually the best part of the meal.
V -- At about $26 the steak was a little over priced for the quality.

My CouchSurfing hosts called me as I was returning from Chandler to find out where I was and where we might be able to meet. I then consulted my map and BeerFly lists as they listened to me read off cities and this was what we agreed upon. It was tucked away in the rear of the Scottsdale Fashion Square, so although I had the address, I initially overshot the place and had to double back.
Entering, the m.d.s. was to the immediate right with the long, oval-shaped, brushed aluminum (or steel)-topped bar at a right oblique. The back bar was an impressive oval-shaped, stainless steel collection of 130 total taps, although there were only 114 different ones with some duplication. The kitchen dominated the back left wall. Booths dominated the front wall while most of the seating in the center of the space was standard restaurant tables and chairs. Nathaniel was our server and I started off with a Four Peaks 8th Street Pale Ale, which I found not be doing it for me and I switched up.

I've visited here a few times while out on business in Phoenix. The atmosphere was nice and the bar well set up. Just seeing all those taps so neatly lined up will bring a smile to your face.
Service was adequate. It was a busy night so I'll give them the benefit of the doubt.
The beer selection was well above average. I've been to places with lots of taps, only to find out most of them are dominated by macros. That wasn't the case here. Loads of craft brews, with a few West Coast offerings I can't find around here.
The food was very good and portions were of a decent size. It was a little expensive but worth it in the end.

Visited this place whilst over from the UK (16/09).
I was not aware that this place was in Fashion Square and next to the Mall until I read about it in my hotel room brochure.
One night at Papago and one night here about blew my liver away.
Well over 100 beers on tap but on checking the list most from from bigger breweries and quite a bit of lager shite. Only about 15 - 20 interesting beers that I had not tried before so bearing in mind I am from the UK and have only tried about 400 American beers that is not a very good selection in terms of rarity.
As a previous reviewer said, they took my card for the tab whilst sitting at the bar. Must check my statement.
I tried the following:-
Green Flash - West Coast Amber
Lost Coast - Alleycat Amber
Bayhawk - Beach Blonde - this was superb
Bayhawk - Hefeweizen
Portland - Oregan Honey
Sea Dog - Blue Pair Wheat - very strange but nice
Deschutes - Pale Ale
Lost Coast - Downtown Brown
Kona - Fire Rock Pale
Rogue - Old Crusty. An absolute fabulous headbanger at 11.7
Nimbus - Old Monkeyshine - Another fabulous headbanger.
All beers $5.25 a pint. RIP OFF PRICES. Stronger beers served in goblets. Not sure about the half yards.
The bartenders were very friendly and let me try a pint of Deshutes as they said it had won an award, also my last 2 beers were on the house as I was from the UK.
Cheers guys that saved me about $15!!!!
Not sure how often they change the beer range but will go back again next time I am in Scottsdale.

This is the most "trendy" of the 3 Yardhouses in Phoenix, and with service I think it is the worst (Glendale is the best, hands down).
The menu selection looks great for beer choices, but you have to wonder why the have so many macros and why they don't rotate the micros very often. For initial impression of atmosphere and printed menu, they're looking great.
But it's extremely overpriced and sometimes the taps aren't so fresh. Moreover, the atmosphere is rather yuppyish but at least they play hard rock nonstop, and only hard rock. Spacious room is good, not smoky at all, and even when packed you can still hold a civil conversation with your tablemates.
Hit the late night happy hour for the best bang for your buck, if you can squeeze in that one hour timeframe into your busy schedule!

I have visited the Yard House location in the Scottsdale Fashion Square Mall a few times, but if you visit one you visit them all as they all have the same setup.
For the uninitiated, the first glimpse of the massive bar surrounding the interior rectangle back bar bristling with unlimited tap handles is likely to make any person who likes beer a bit weak in the knees and slightly feint.
The beer selection is massive and was impressed that they carry a few local brews, from Four Peaks, a local brewery. The beer menu is also impressive, extensive and very well prepared. The staffs beer knowledge ranges from complete indifference to very informed, just like any other bar in the world.
Huge Beer Selection
Room temperature glassware
Upscale and varied food menu
All pours from the tap have temperatures that are artic and take a long time to get to a reasonable drinking temperature.
No growler sales.
Prices A bit steep for my pocketbook for visits on a regular basis. Happy Hour is the best bang for your buck.
I am thankful that I live in an area with such a wide variety of choices available to go out and get some great craft beers, including the Yard House. If visiting the Phoenix/Scottsdale area I would recommend a visit, just do not do yourself a disservice and overlook the great locally owned brewpubs/breweries that are also available.

Look it, I hate to come down on a place with such a massive tap, but I need to.
Clean your lines even if the keg hasn't been tapped yet.
They have an unrealistic selection of beers on tap here.
I say unrealistic because I saw Delerium Tremens come onto tap one week and not leave for 6 months. I am under the impression that, matched up to the other 99 beers they have on tap there, DT doesn't get much needle time, so that keg just sat there for six months. Not so bad until you consider that their cooler is on the other side of the fricken restaurant and all the lines run up the wall, across the roof and down to the taps.
I calculate there could be 2 gallons of beer in transit at anytime, and I don't know about you, but when I am about to pay 7 bucks for a brew I don't want the possibility of it chilling in 20 meters of plastic tubing for the last 10 days to be a possibility, only thing is it's the reality here.
I'm in to craft and places pumping it, but this place just went overkill grabbed everything they could on tap and left the craft out of it, which is making sure you do everything possible to give you the best tasting beer.
Food is good, pricey and a seems like apple bees that got famous and now rolls a lex instead of a pinto. Not the worst decision of a place to go, but if you do grab something that seems like it flows often or your taste buds will pay.
