Being a BeerAlien has it’s perks. We meet lots of interesting humans, we get to sample incredible beer, we get to sample tasty human food, and we get invited to fun events. This time, the perks included all of the above. My friend Jeff and myself arrived at Westfield Mission Valley Mall and proceeded to check in with the staff at Yard House to get our wristband and drink tickets. We arrived early and sat right at the bar. I immediately was impressed with it’s nice wood, old school looking decor and incredible sound system. The bar was stationed in the middle and had tons of HD TVs everywhere we look where we can see beer, food, and drink specials, as well as sporting events. I was hearing hits from Van Halen, Heart, and Jimi Hendrix. The staff behind the bar immediately greeted us with a smile and asked what we would like to drink first. It took a while to look over their 120+ tap list and finally selected Piraat Triple Hop. This is an amazing hoppy Belgian ale that’s balanced, complex, and oh so very delicious!
We were then given samplers from their food menu and I don’t have one single complaint. My favorites were the spicy Thai chicken pizza, ahi poke, and the blackened swordfish street tacos. Jeff seemed to really be impressed with the cheeseburger, the chicken garlic noodles and the spinach dip. Everything we had was fresh, flavorful and creative. The menu has a lot of items, but I am pretty sure, everything is great.
This place has it relaxing atmosphere, good music, amazing food, and best of all… incredible beers! The Yard House at Westfield Mission Valley Mall seems to have it all. I recommend coming here to watch a sporting event, or have a dinner and a beer before a movie. You’re sure to have a good time at Yard House.
