Bar and grill with lots of veg options

Restaurant, Bar

Yard House is a bar and grill in the West End area with lots of vegetarian and vegan options. They have a large selection of Gardein menu items available- such as buffalo wings, sliders, stir fry, burgers, sandwiches, and Gardein pizzas. They also have many other non-Gardein veg options such as tofu and shitake/crimini mushroom lettuce wraps and shitake mushroom street tacos. Their menu clearly labels which items are veg friendly. In addition to their large menu, they have over 100 varieties of beer on tap.

Atmosphere: 1; Food: 3.5

This place is loud. Really, really loud. Extremely loud. A lot of noise. Much sound, wow.

Have I mentioned that it's super loud? It's also dark and there are TVs everywhere. The TVs would be more annoying if I could hear each one individually, but it all blends together into a lot of noise, so hey, at least it's just really loud.

The food was decent, but nothing to write home about. I had the Gardein chicken avocado sandwich. It was a chunk of grilled Gardein chicken breast with avocado, lettuce, and tomato. They don't have vegan cheese or mayo, so it was a bit bland. The fries that it came with would have been excellent if they'd been hot, but they were lukewarm. My wife ordered a Gardein chicken stir fry, which was decent.

We also had the Gardein "wings", which are basically deep fried nuggets. Unfortunately, the buffalo sauce has butter (say what?) and the firecracker sauce has honey. We got the jerk rub, which had very little flavor. The jerk rub comes with some sweet and bland barbecue sauce. The wings themselves were great, though, crispy on the outside and moist inside. They tasted decent with some ketchup and mustard.

I probably wouldn't go back here because of the atmosphere unless someone else dragged me, but if you like loud bars, you should definitely check it out.

Finally the Twin Cities has a nice bar and grill with lots of veg options. There were so many choices that I had a hard time deciding what to order. We decided to go with the chips and guacamole, shitake/crimini mushroom lettuce wraps, and the Gardein slider burgers with fries. Everything was fantastic! The food tasted very fresh and flavorful. Service was awesome. We were also impressed by the large selection of 100+ tap beers. This is one of my new favorite restaurants.

Just a warning, apparently this place gets very busy on Friday and Saturday nights with long waiting times. So you may want to avoid these times or plan ahead.
