Yard House coming to Baybrook Mall

PRESS RELEASE

d_logoIt’s been six years since Yard House first came to Texas — first to San Antonio followed by Houston and Addison — and now the award-winning dining destination will open its fourth Lone Star location at the Baybrook Mall in Friendswood on Saturday, Dec. 5 at 11 a.m. Known for its menu of American favorites, crafted cocktails and endless fleet of tap handles featuring the best American craft beers and imports, the new Yard House will be open for lunch, dinner and late-night dining.

More than 200 jobs will need to be filled, including front of the house positions, from servers and bartenders to front desk, as well as “heart of the house” positions including prep and line cooks. To learn more about job opportunities, potential team members should visit http://www.yardhouse.com/careers.

“We’re very excited to be part of the Friendswood community,” said Craig Carlyle, president of Yard House. “And we are looking forward to opening day and welcoming our very first guests. Everything is moving along smoothly and on time.”

Yard House will span more than 11,000 square feet with seating for nearly 350 guests both inside and on the patio plus another three-dozen seats encircling the restaurant’s signature island bar. The spacious floor plan, which is lofty and open, has an industrial vibe with a mix of warm woods and stainless steel accents as well as an original collection of thought-provoking art by California artist Jerome Gastaldi.

Yard House’s calling card is its draft beer, and the Friendswood location will include 130 taps with several handles reserved for local and regional brewers. The beer is delivered fresh and perfectly chilled from a glass-enclosed keg room that houses hundreds of steel barrels. It’s then transported through miles of overhead tubing which feeds into the collection of taps displayed at the island bar. The keg room maintains a consistent 34-36 degrees and can house as much as 4,000 gallons of beer at any given time. Beer is served by the half-yard, traditional pint glasses and goblets with 9-ounce shorty and six-pack sampler options. Yard House is also known for its Chalkboard Series, which features a selection of small, limited releases from mostly craft brewers that rotate frequently keeping the selection both innovative and fresh. These featured beers are listed on a digital chalkboard prominently displayed above the island bar.

The menu of American favorites includes a selection of globally-inspired flavors, from salads and grilled burgers to seafood, steak and ribs. Guests can also enjoy an array of gluten-sensitive options plus a menu of vegetarian dishes made with gardein™, a blend of garden vegetables and protein that have the look, taste and texture of chicken. Yard Happy Hour, which will take place Monday-Friday from 3-6pm and Sunday-Wednesday from 10pm until closing, features select full-portion appetizers from $5.

As with every Yard House location, music will play a pivotal role at the Friendswood location as a continuous playlist of classic rock, including ‘80s and ‘90s alternative, promises to fill the space. Each Yard House has its own distinct playlist pulling from a library of about 5,000 songs with no two locations playing the same song at the same time.

In addition, a collection of flat screen monitors viewable from nearly every seat will be strategically placed throughout the restaurant displaying the latest sporting and world events.

Yard House is slated to open at the Baybrook Mall in Friendswood — where Baybrook Mall and the Gulf Freeway meet– on December 5. For more information, visit www.yardhouse.com. Like us on Facebook at Facebook.com/YardHouse or follow us on Twitter @YardHouse.
