We were on Balboa Island and had a feeling for wings. A google search had Yard House at number 9, in Newport Beach, but most of the top 8 were wing fast food places. We wanted somewhere nice to sit down, relax and have a beer with our wings. Having visited Yard House before, we knew we liked the place... More

We went there for Lunch and luckily got a place (booth) without any wait. I ordered Turkey pot pie and the other 3 people who went with me ordered Nashville Chicken Plate with Sweet Potato Pancakes. Both the dishes were very good. The way "Turkey pot pie" was served, created doubts on my mind if I could complete but then... More

We were with a tour group of 55. They had a small menu, but had 6 or 7 choices. The appetizers were very good, as well as the meal.

We sat at the bar and were well taken care of by several staff. The place was packed on a WEDS night which may seem odd. We had the tuna roll appetizer which was good but odd. Then the tacos for dinner which were quite good.

Atmosphere is always fairly up beat, noise levels moderate to high, range of drinkers and diners, bit of a safe bet / consistent local drinking / light dining hole I suspect. Service was mostly good. Outdooor heaters makes it nice for winter sitting - bit less hustle and bustle if that is something you seek. Dining range is great and... More

It seemed such a cool place from the outside and because of that we invited some friends to watch a football game at the restaurant. We've got so disappointed: - the service was so slow and unapologetic. They have no focus on service. It took us 20 min to have an iced tea. - food was greasy, soggy, expensive for... More

The Yard House is a fun place to meet friends to have a meal together or meet for a cocktail. Yuppy type food, very good. Nice servers. Crowded most of the time.

We went during Veteran's Day weekend on a visit to Newport Beach. The restaurant was very busy, but we only had to wait about 10 minutes as it was later in the evening. Service was good and the waitress offered some sample of different beers that we were interested in. My food was delicious and hot when we were served.... More

Exceptional food and Pomegranate Martini's. We really enjoyed the Blue Crab Cakes, Moo Shu Egg Rolls, Spinach Cheese Dip and Spicy Tuna Roll. A little more expensive than most Happy Hours at other restaurants but it was well worth the extra cost. I wish they would extend their Happy Hour to include the weekends.
