I'm trying to be very subjective in my review. I last visited this place on my 24th birthday last October (2007). Atmosphere is standard yard house chain approved. Large oval bar lots of booths and tables tons of flat screens with various sports games on the telly. Bonus points for atmosphere as you are in Honolulu, Hawaii blocks from the beach, and so many beautiful women! Quality of the beers was good, and whilst the selection was not the best it was great to see Kona, Maui, and other Hawaiin micros prett well represented. Service was somewhat slow, but not bad, and the food, whilst tasty was just average pub grub. Also, this place can be a bit pricey but at happy hour they do have some very good specials on their food and drink, especially their food. $5 for a very filling sliders and fries meal, sure. Pretty good for Honolulu, is the general concensus.

I have visited the "Yard House" concept in San Diego, Scottdale and Phoenix. This version is basically the same with an added outdoor lanai. I have enjoyed visiting but can't really get too enthusiastic.
First problem with the Honolulu location is the outrageous prices. Everything is about 40-50% more expensive than the mainland places. $6.00 for a pint! Cheeseburger for $12.00!
Second is the beer selection. I know they have over 100 taps but at least half are the usual "mainstream" beers like BMC, Sierra Nevada, Guinness, Harp, Boddingtons, etc. The craft brews are usually Arrogant Bastard, Pyramid, Redhook etc. I've never seen locally made micros on tap at Yard House. Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough.
The food is pretty good but way, way overpriced. I guess the rent must be really high in this glitzy new place.
A real BA beer geek would be much happier at Brew Moon, near Waikiki.

I love the atmosphere of the Yard House. You are in Waikiki, you're in Hawai'i, and you're surrounded by beer. Any questions??
Sure the yard house is a little expensive, but what isn't in Waikiki? I wasn't actually even going to the yard house. I wanted to go but wasn't looking for it. Luckily, my girlfriend had a rock in her shoe and we stopped on a small side street to get it out. Like the sun coming through on a cloudy day, there was the Yard House. If this doesn't help it's near the Halekulani Hotel. The selection isn't the best for a Yard House, but once again it's Hawai'i, and these are pretty much every beer you can get in the state. I have tasted pretty much every beer that they had on tap. Good news 140 beers on tap, bad news Coors Lt., PBR, Bud Select, and a few types of Sam Adams were among them. If you've been to another Yard House, it's nothing special, but it's a nice cool down from all of the shopping in Honolulu. Stop by, say hello, then move on to Ryan's in the Ward Center or one of the pubs in Chinatown for some local flair. Aloha

I've been here a couple of times. Newly opened on a completely redone street. Very nice location if you are visiting Hawaii [parking is on the street parallel [behind] at the hotel.
Rather large place, but if you go for dinner you can expect a wait. No reservations.
Good size oval bar. TV's all around. Nice place to go and watch a sporting event [which I recently did]. Very easy to start chatting with the many tourists [and a few locals] that drop in. A steady flow of people coming in and out.
Lots of beer on tap to choose from [+/-125] including a number of beers you can't get anywhere else in Hawaii. Service was very good and the food also has been very good each time I went. Sure, it is not cheap, but you're in a bar in Waikiki...what do you expect? Truly, hard to beat the beer/food/service. So far, I am quite impressed.
