Yardhouse is coming to Boca. They have existing stores in Hallandale and Palm Beach Gardens.
I've been hoping they'd fill that hole in Boca or Delray and that's just what's happening.
I predict they'll crush it.
My previous comments on Yardhouse:
I recently went to The Yardhouse in Palm Beach Gardens for the first time and returned a week later. I was very impressed with this chain out of California. Mgmt whoever they are knows what they are doing.
Take an upscale sports bar, mix in some Cheesecake Factory, add classic rock music and about 150 regular and craft beers on tap, and you get The Yard House. Very impressed with this chain out of Long Beach California and now in about 10 states.
Upon entering immediately greeted by 3 smiling and friendly hostesses. Mentioned first time here and they promised we'd be back. Service outstanding from start to finish. Food excellent: I had jambalaya - as good as you find on Bourbon Street. "Gourmet" Mac and Cheese "Squared" also excelled.
Asst Mgr came over and took us on tour of their Keg Room. Nice final touch: Takeout boxes are a step above styrofoam - and on the outside they write what's in them and the date. A smart little touch to keep the good memories alive when you see it in your frig a day or two later.
One staffer told me she's been working there for years and they have very low turnover. That's a sure confirmation of superior mgmt in the restaurant biz.
We returned a week later in time for Happy Hour (ends at 6, we got there around 5:30) and ordered about 4 apps at appx $5 each, they were all outstanding and that's all we needed to be very happy.
Included some tuna-tartare-like dishes that were really really good.
Obviously a well-run and fun place, we WILL be back. Recommended!
