This California-based chain boasts the "world's largest selection of
draft beers," and the large oval bar is certainly the centerpiece of
this hopping place. Yard House is a cross between a sports bar --
there's a TV anywhere you look -- and a gastropub. The menu is
extensive and features the usual burgers, sandwiches, pizzas, pastas
and salads, but also decent seafood and steaks. The only downside is
that it's always busy.
