When Yard House opened in 1996 in Long Beach, California, it revolutionized the restaurant industry by creating a 250-tap draft beer system. Its lofty design, warm wood accents, and industrial vibe with the use of steel and chrome, made it a dining destination from the start. Nearly 21 years and 68 restaurants later – including four restaurants in Orange County (The Triangle, Irvine Spectrum, Downtown Brea and Fashion Island) – Yard House still leads the way with great food, classic rock and a vast selection of draft beer while evolving into an award-winning dining destination known for its menu of American favorites, crafted cocktails and endless fleet of tap handles featuring the best American craft and import beers. Executive Chef Carlito Jocson, an Orange County native himself, has been at the helm of Yard House, creating the restaurant’s signature fare that reads like a coast-to-coast road trip with more than 100 items made from scratch daily. Celebrating 10 years this September, Yard House at Fashion Island features 100 taps of beer, including several local and regional brews, that pair perfectly with the selection of grilled burgers, gourmet salads, street tacos, steaks, seafood and house favorites. Yard House is open daily at 11am for lunch, dinner and late-night dining.
