On the other hand, having a beer in one of these places is like having a drink in a Cheesecake Factory. If you care nothing about the setting where you go to drink -- or if you're happy with a formulaic, chain-like feel of a typical shopping mall for a setting, where even the art seems to scream mass production -- then you can definitely find dining and beer drinking happiness at Yard House. But if the decor and vibe of a drinking place matter to you, and you value a bit of personality and interesting people over having a hundred beers to choose from, a trip to the Yard House -- like any number of places exactly like it in any sizable American city these days -- may make you may wonder what the point is.
