Boca Raton is known for the assortment of restaurants within Mizner Park, and one such gem is Yard House.
Yard House is an American chain restaurant with a versatile menu that accommodates all. Whether someone is vegetarian or vegan, Yard House has options to suit anyone’s dietary needs. This is not like any Americanized restaurant that offers bar food galore.
“Came for some lunch and was surprised. I loved it. Very diverse menu — there is something for everyone in the party,” said Emma B. on Yelp.
Not all college students are meat-eaters, which is what makes Yard House a great spot. Pescatarians can enjoy an excellent shrimp Cobb salad while vegan’s can enjoy avocado toast. Regular customers rave about the appetizers, which include calamari, cheese curds and ahi tuna.
“Most American restaurants aren’t very great, but this place has it all. From Asian food to burgers to Thai,” said Lisa T. on Yelp.
The atmosphere at Yard House includes dim lighting and an enormous, centrally-located bar.
“Yard House has been a favorite spot of mine for years. They offer such a wide variety of food that it would be just about impossible not to find something you want to eat,” said Jaci K. on Yelp.
Many Lynn students enjoy the restaurant because they can enjoy a great meal and then walk around Mizner Park after.
“I love going to the Yard House at Mizner Park with my teammates because after we eat, we can walk around and look at all the different shops that Mizner Park has,” said Taryn Super, a senior. “After eating at the Yard House, my teammates and I will get some ice cream [at] the nearby ice cream shop.”
Boca Raton’s Mizner Park has lots of phenomenal restaurants, and Yard House is just one offering a fine dining experience.
