Default What an incredible experience at the Yardhouse

This is going to sound like a broken record in relation to others feedback for the Yardhouse and jwdb1fish, but it deserves attention all the same.

This evening I went with 4 other couples to the Yardhouse downtown with our first positive experience being the booking of the evening. Despite the multiple events going on this weekend at the Sprint Center, I was able to make a reservation with JW's assistance. I wouldn't advise taking advantage of this without his express permission but without it, we wouldn't have been able to get that reservation.

I've heard of plenty of others speaking of the exceptional service, both in wait staff and JW's management oversight but I had no idea of the extent to which that would go. I can't possibly list everything that was done as I don't want to give anyone expectations. However, I will say that the folks in my party were shocked, and had never seen someone go so above and beyond for our group. We all left completely astounded at what service we had been provided. We were there for one person's birthday and this was a birthday dinner like none other.

One touch that I will note as it definitely deserves praise, is JW saw what beer I had ordered, which happened to be their Collaborative Triple IPA with Greenflash, made exclusively for Yardhouse, noted my preference and brought out last year's collaborative beer (a Rogue IPA) he'd been saving for which provided me an opportunity to sample an option that no one else there was getting. That was truly more than I could have asked for.

I'm a little embarrassed it's taken me so long to meet JW in person and visit his restaurant, as after having done so, I have no excuse not to have. I highly, highly recommend the experience and to really make it worthwhile, let JW know you're coming.

Thank you JW, truly. What an evening.

Thank you!!



I'm glad everyone had a good time. I'm pretty judgmental on my and our performances, and I can still count more than 5 missed opportunities we had to make your experience even that much better.

I really wanted everything to be perfect.


Thanks to you and your friends for choosing Yard House!!


But, in fairness, I bolded part of your post as you shouldn't be at all embarrassed. You and I haven't seen eye to eye on many issues on this forum...or we do, and one of us chooses to troll the other just for the fun of it.


I can only speak to my own actions, sooo.....yeah


It was great to finally meet you, and let me know next time you need a spot to kick it downtown

Your guys' performances truly were perfect, I couldn't have asked for better hosts.

Honestly the delay has been a convenience thing more than anything else...you know how us JOCO folks are...never getting out of our bubbles because PNL is so far away

But for real, this is my new top spot after last night.

Please share my thanks with all of your staff, they were all on point.

I'd probably go and eat and point out everyone I think that may be him and just never say anything.

I think your server went out and bought a new car with the tip you all left


She was very thankful to have helped you all out.

I've been there a couple of times and always had great service. One time they changed half the TVs in the place over to the 24 Hours of Daytona for us so we could watch it. That was fucking awesome.

The last time we went my wife had something with fish in it and we didn't even make it home before she was throwing it up. She was pregnant at the time so I attributed it to that and not to anything Yardhouse did, but simply mentioning the name now makes her queasy so I doubt we'll be back any time soon.

I'd recommend it to anyone.

Thumbs up

Jwdb1fish went above and beyond for my wife's cousin and her party this evening. They were there for prom and he made sure their experience was top notch. It was a bit of a surprise for her, but he walked up, asked for her by name and made sure her and her date had the best experience possible.

Top notch guy! My wife and I are going to head down one of these days when I can pawn my kids off for a night out so that I can finally meet him.

I'm glad she had a great time


We got MAULED today with two Garth Brooks concerts, and we hit record breaking sales from 5:30-7:30 as one show let out, and the other starting up at 7:30pm.


We were ready, and while I'm proud of the team we definitely had our opportunities here and there dealing with that type of volume.

Thanks for letting me know she was coming down so we could ensure she had a memorable experience
