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.
