    Just average. The grilled cheese is typically good but was below average and the bacon on the sandwich was overcooked and sparse. The server was nice but the service was slow.

    Shadyside location. Disappointed that they did not have their dedicated gf fryer available on the day we visited. Food was good, not outstanding, service fine. Not rushing to go back with so many other great places in same neighborhood.

    The cocktails were on point. The problem was our waitress never came back in a timely manner to get additional drinks. At one point all of us were sitting with empty glasses. Food was fantastic.

    It was wonderful. Being a celiac it was great that they had gluten free options which is why I picked it while we were in town. Unfortunately I learned while there that they are not handicapped accessible so if I’m back in town and we have my son along, we will not be able to go there as he needs a handicapped accessible facility.

    Went here for lunch with some coworkers. Nice place, but likely understaffed like the rest of the world right now. Took about 45 minutes to get two grilled cheese sandwiches and a salad. Convenient parking directly next door.

    We were in Pittsburgh for a wedding a d found TheYard which was convenient to where we were staying. Buffalo chicken dip appetizer was delicious. We had a Smash burger and salad too. Burger was great, salad was very fresh a d plentiful but needed more dressing. Overall, good spot.

    We were out in a corner with black walls, could barely read the menu. Service was not great. Waiter was not great at clearing plates when finished so we had no room for dinner cause our appetizer plates were still there, refilled our drinks left the empties there, he was also training someone & was obviously not training the right way to wait in tables. I was a waitress & this was not good service. Food was not great.

    Awesome staff, food and drink. Impossible Burger is to die for and you can’t go wrong with any of the grilled cheese offerings. Beers rotate frequently (bring reading glasses as the beer menu font is tiny!)

    Horrible service. The kitchen lost our ticket, so it took almost an hour to get food. Part of our meal was cold and done incorrectly. It also took over 15 minutes for someone to ask us about our bill, which we only got after speaking to a manager. He was nice enough to give us a discount. In total, we spend over an hour and a half there while people who sat down after us were able to leave before we even saw the bill.

    We decided to give The Yard another go, partly because we hadn't been there in a while, and partly because we forgot how underwhelming it is. What they do have is consistency, in terms of the food still being overpriced and not that great. The appetizer had to be sent back because it was still cold on the inside, the grilled cheese was a mess of over cooked and just bland, and the fries (which you pay extra for) were unseasoned. I will say that the service was fantastic. Our service was outgoing and friendly; she seemed genuinely pleasant. She was right on refills, and made sure to stop back quickly to check on us. Her personal work is a 5-Star. It's just a pity she has to be so upbeat about serving such lackluster food. This restaurant will not be added to our rotation.

    Haven't been here in a year due to my husband's injury. This was one of his favorite casual restaurants. The menu is now much smaller. His favorite burger, the shrimp salad, and the crab grilled cheese are gone. If we weren't so hungry, we would have left. We won't be back.

    Came here for mother’s day, scheduled for 4pm. I called around 1 to see if they could take us earlier and they said absolutely not, so no worries. When we showed up at 4 there was one other table... whatever. We were then seated close to the kitchen where we could hear a female server repeatedly using profane language, and on top of that service was extremely slow. Maybe it was an off day for them, but I definitely won’t be back.

    Great beer list! The fare is standard bar fare, though their specialty Mac and cheese burgers are awesome. Tuesday night is 40 cent wing night.Ambiance is a rustic decor that is always appreciated in Pgh. I would check for reservations ahead of time
