Yard House is a restaurant located in downtown Seattle at 4th and Pike in the Century Square Building. They've been open three years now and we finally checked it out yesterday. It's a brew house with bar food and a full bar that dominates the room. The menu is big with any type of food you're craving or want to pair with your cocktail. They have a happy hour not just in the bar but throughout the restaurant. We took our boys and we found the place to be pretty kid friendly. It was the perfect balance between dark and loud with great rock music playing, to the big open space and large bar in the middle of the room. Yet they had a kids menu and high chairs. Perfect. The scene reminded me of Vegas or Times Square and that kind of energy is just what Seattle needs. Luckily when we sat down there was still ten minutes of Happy Hour. So we quickly looked at the menu and ordered. I started with a Sidecar, a cocktail with rum, which I loved. Then we got the Spicy Thai Chicken Pizza, the Spicy Tuna Roll, the Pepperoni and Mushroom Pizza, the Fried Chicken Strips, and the Hot Wings. Sound like a lot, but everything was only six to eight bucks. Plus, we had enough food left over for lunch the next day for all four of us. I'm happy I tried Yard House and I'll probably return another time for Happy Hour.
