Coming soon to Fresno: Yard House

For years now, I’ve heard people saying that Fresno needs a Yard House — the SoCal-based restaurant known for its huge beer selection. If you’re one of those people, rejoice.

Yard House is coming to Fresno by the end of the year, according to the Business Journal. From its story:

Yard House, the Southern California restaurant famous for featuring 130 brews on tap, announced it will unveil a Fresno location by the end of the year.

Yard House, based in Irvine, said in a news release it will open a restaurant in Fresno’s River Park shopping center by December, though details about where exactly it would open were not given. A call to Lance-Kashian & Co., owner of the River Park properties, was not immediately returned.

Yard House bills itself as “an award-winning casual chain of eateries known for its American fusion fare, classic-to-contemporary rock, and world’s largest selection of draft beer.” The Fresno location will be one of seven new restaurants it plans to open in the next 12 months. Other new California locations this year include San Jose, Roseville and Palmdale.

A classic rock-themed place that brags about having the “world’s largest selection of draft beer?” Sounds like it’s right up Fresno’s alley. We’re assuming it’s going to take over Claim Jumper’s location, but that’s just speculation at this point.

This is great news! I always thought Yardhouse would do incredibly well here, so that’s exciting to see it’s happening. Would’ve been a great as a downtown addition, but I’ll take what I can get.

Brian says:

Best news of the day! Best Sportsbar around, and beers and beers and beers!

Just when you think Buffalo Wild Wings has a hold on Fresno…BOOM!

The Fresnan says:

This place is a can’t miss here. It’s like our BJ’s Brewhouse but with (the mentioned) 130 beers on tap and yards of beer. It will rake.

Great addition to the #1 drunken city in the nation.

Tracy says:

Yes, you are correct. The restaurant and bar will take the place of claim jumper at Nees and Blackstone.

Lisa J says:

With 130 beers on tap. I’m hoping there’s something for those of us that like it dark…..very dark!

JJJ says:

I’ve been to the located at La Live, and enjoyed it.

Would have been better downtown instead of the over-saturated river park area, especially because this type of place would be successful anywhere. Seriously, they could stick it in Sanger and it would still do well.

Baboo says:

Good news I suppose; I too wish it was going to be somewhere other than RiverPark, but beggars can’t be choosers.

this will probably impact businesss at world sports cafe

Eddie says:

Love the Yard House. I am sure it will do well and be a great fit in Fresno

DUKE says:

Kristin says:

I went to the location in Irvine down at The Spectrum. It’s a little pricey for my liking. I spent the Superbowl there last year and my bill for a few drinks was almost $50. I think a lemon drop was $10. It will probably be a “splurge” location for me, rather than a normal hang out. Too bad they couldn’t put it in Seirra Vista area to give help to that movie theatre area.

Natali says:

I’m excited to welcome Yard House to Fresno. It was the one remaining chain restaurant I do enjoy that hadn’t made it here yet, and now it’s coming, so yes, I’m quite happy. I’m not a big beer drinker, but I do love their food!

cathy says:

Apparently they have an extensive gluten free menu, which is a HUGE deal for some of us and not easy to find in Fresno. Count me one of the VERY excited potential customers.

Ingrid says:

When and where are they doing interviews?
