When you want to be close to the action but not quite in it, Yard House is your go-to gastropub for watching the game. The L.A. Live eatery has enough TVs scattered around the space to get a good view from any seat while you nosh on buffalo wings, nachos, poke or garlic noodles. If the thought of chicken wings makes you squirm, there's a full vegetarian section on the menu. Oh, and the most important part: Yard House boasts a massive list of beer. Get there during happy hour (Mon-Fri 3-6pm) for discounted drinks and bites.



Address: 800 W Olympic Blvd

A classic All-American place for basic eats, beer, and sports.  I've been here many times and have to say it's a good go-to place for the casual eats.  This place gets super crowded and they don't take reservations for smaller parties.  Be prepared to wait if you're coming on a weekend or any game night/concert.  The bar area is totally open, so try to snag something there if you can.  Unfortunately the high tops aren't part of the bar area so you won't be able to snag one of those. 

My review is only 3 stars because I've noticed a huge shift in the food quality of YH! In my recent 3 times I've been there, the burgers are always overcooked! I like my burger medium rare and it came back more than well done.  After sending it back 3 times, the hostess was so kind to just take it off and apologized.

I love a good burger, but I was disappointed in the sense that I couldn't enjoy it... 

The small bites and appetizers are definitely the way to go it seems like.  Next time, I'd recommend that.


Yes, it's somewhat tacky & can get crazy packed before/after/during games and shows. But the Yard House achieves what it sets out to do. If you're heading to a show or game and want to let loose beforehand with some enormous beers, you won't find a better place. It has all of the usual bar/pub food options and as I said, the beers are huge and will start your evening off on a good (and filling) foot. 


Yard House is a great restaurant to go prior to a game or show at Staples center! They have a lot of beer options and many food options. It does get packed during a game night/show night, so be sure to get there early so you can get a table!
