Visit Yard House Restaurant in Honolulu for great pub food and draft beer by the beach.
Yard House is conveniently located along the Waikiki Beach Walk and has that comforting familiarity of a pub though with a modern and energetic vibe. The open kitchen means you can watch your food and drink being prepared and the walls are decorated with original art created by Jerome Gastaldi. A mix of classic and new rock plays throughout the day and the beats get turned up come Happy Hour.
If you like, you’ll love Yard House. The restaurant has over 100 draft beers on tap as well as a “Chalkboard Series” which showcases special local, domestic and imported beers for a limited time. If you need help navigating the 100+ brews for a cruelty-free drop, the servers are pretty knowledgable when it comes to their menu. If in doubt, I always ask Barnivore!
Beer is served in just about every size including, as the name suggests, yard glasses. I’m a sucker for novelty so I’d suggest either a yard glass of beer or a beer tasting paddle if you can’t on trying just one.
The food is Modern American with several vegan options. Vegan options include:
– Chilled Edamame
– Shitake and Cremini Mushrooms Lettuce Wraps
– Mixed Field Greens
– Vegan Burger
– The Citrus Soy Salad
– The Summer Salad
– Gardein Chicken Rice Bowl
– Gardein Firecracker Wings
– Garden Jerk Wings
– Gardein Orange Peel Chicken (pictured)
Please note, the rest of the Gardein menu not listed here does contain dairy. It would be worth asking if they can be made without the cheese/mayo though.
The service is friendly although for us it was unsurprisingly slow since it was a busy Thursday afternoon. Thankfully we’d booked a table since there were 10 of us however I’d recommend making a booking just in case.
Overall, Yard House is a great place for a casual meet up with friends for good beer and feeds to cater for all.
