REVIEW: FOUR OUT OF TEN STROLLERS
11701 Lake Victoria Gardens, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
I went to lunch at Yard House at Downtown at the Gardens, in Palm Beach Gardens Florida. I arrived at noon with a few workmates, and took a look around for a possible return visit with the kid. There were children there on a Friday at 12:30pm and they looked comfortable in the large open chairs. Really though, with all the beers on tap this is a better place for a late night happy hour than for a meal with children. Service is not great, more formal and indicative of a national chain.
Food took a long time to come out, and the noise, although good to drown out any misbehavior, was too much I think for most children. The hosts at the front move you through without any real sincerity, and very much like a factory. It does not seem like you can meet people with children with any ease. So in the end, I think it is a pick-up joint, pre-game for the nightclubs and bars in the area. Also parking is not great, so if you do visit Downtown at the Gardens, I recommend the complimentary valet. Four out of ten strollers because I would probably only come back with the and have a beer and watch a game.
