An Early Preview Of Yard House At The Linq

When Yard House was created, the idea was to offer a restaurant that would boast one of the largest selections of draft beers, a diverse menu of American food, and play classic rock on a state-of-the-art sound system. Eight years later, you can add plenty of HD TVs to watch the games to that list. All things combined, it's a winning recipe for a very popular chain restaurant. The newest and largest outpost of Yard House officially opens this Friday, February 28 at The Linq.

Our hard hat tour of The Linq ended at Yard House where we were able to check out both stories of this mega-complex of beer and sample a few of the hundreds of drafts on tap. Don’t worry, nobody was hurt during this tasting. See how small this California Porter is?

There are already two Yard House locations in Las Vegas so this isn’t a new experience, but Yard House is only a regional chain with locations in just 16 states so the concept may be new to many. What makes The Linq location of Yard House so different is its enormity.

When you enter, you’ll walk into a sweet lounge with ample TVs. The lounge is a great spot to just hang out, drink beer and watch the games. There are TVs that are viewable from every chair. You can actually view multiple screens at a time, but this is just a lounge, not a sports bar so you’re not overly inundated with monitors. If you’re not in the mood to watch the games, you might have more fun watching the people heading to The High Roller while jamming out to Led Zepplin.

Whether or not you’ve been to Yard House before, you have to be impressed with the bar. This one is huge and has no less than six TVs to watch the games. The bar is the signature spot in any Yard House. There is table seating for hundreds, but everything starts at the bar with a huge selection of beer from around the world. The massive beer menu is reminiscent of its other restaurants. The only sad news about this location is that there won’t be the famous Yard House happy hour when they open. That may change in the future, but there are no plans as of now.

The dining choices on the huge menu look similar to what you’ll find in other Yard House locations as well. That’s the good and bad thing about chain restaurants. In this case, that’s a good thing because the food at Yard House is always good. Head upstairs to eat inside or outside. Palm trees and a sweet view of the High Roller highlight the patio. Outdoor drinking high above the rest of the people at The Linq sounds like fun unless it's 120 degrees in July. No word on whether or not there will be any umbrellas or shading that rolls out.

One of the best features about Yard House at The Linq is that you can earn and use Total Rewards credits here. Just hand your TR card to the waiter, waitress or bartender when you settle your bill and you’ll be able to receive or redeem credits. Speaking of The Linq and players clubs, you can now book rooms at the hotels connected to The Linq -- Flamingo or The Quad -- through Starwood or Total Rewards with their new partnership.

Again, Yard House officially opens to the public on Friday, February 28.

Bring It

Nice work, Marc.
This a Strip addition I'm looking forward to.   Yard House has the quality and vibe my wife and I enjoy.

@UTE

Thanks! It's everything I was hoping for. It's nice for lofty expectations to be met.

Gardein for Vegetarians too

YardHouse menu has a complete Gardein section too. Which is that meat substitute you find at the grocery store. So vegetarians can eat meat-tasting meals without the actual meat. Just FYI. No cold-pressed juices on the menu yet. Unless you count watermelon beer?
