Moorestown, NJ – When Yard House opens at the Moorestown Mall on December 5th, it will mark the company’s first-ever restaurant to open in the Greater Philadelphia area as the first to open in the Garden State.
The award-winning dining destination, known for its American favorites menu, crafted cocktails, and an endless fleet of tap handles featuring the best American craft beers and imports, currently boasts 60 restaurants in 23 states.
“It’s always exciting when we bring our brand and concept to a new market,” said Craig Carlyle, president of Yard House. “The Greater Philadelphia region is a very vibrant area, and our location in Moorestown is centrally located and easily accessible from Route 38. We’re looking forward to being part of the community when we open in December.”
Within the next few weeks, Yard House will begin the hiring process as 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.

Open daily for lunch, dinner, and late-night dining; the new Yard House will span more than 11,000 square feet with seating for approximately 360 guests both inside and on the patio with more than 30 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 and an original collection of thought-provoking art by California artist Jerome Gastaldi.
Yard House’s calling card is its draft beer, and the Moorestown location will include 110 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 frequently rotate, keeping the selection both innovative and fresh. These featured beers are listed on a digital chalkboard prominently displayed above the island bar.
The American favorites menu 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. Happy Hour, which will take place Monday-Friday from 3-6 pm and Sunday-Wednesday from 10 pm until closing, features select full-portion appetizers from $5.
As with every Yard House location, music will play a pivotal role as a continuous playlist of classic rock, including the ‘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 simultaneously.
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 Mooretown Mall on Saturday, December 5 at 11 am. For more information, visit www.yardhouse.com. Please like us on Facebook at Facebook.com/YardHouse or follow us on Twitter @YardHouse.
About Yard House

Nearly 20 years and 61 restaurants later, Yard House still leads the way with great food, classic rock, and a vast selection of draft beer while evolving into an award-winning dining destination known for its menu of American favorites, crafted cocktails, and an endless fleet of tap handles featuring the best American craft beers and imports. The exhibition kitchen creates more than 100 items made from scratch, infused with quality ingredients and globally-inspired flavors. The menu includes everything from shareable plates and appetizers to grilled burgers, steaks, and seafood. Each Yard House has its own distinct beer list with a handful of taps reserved for local and regional brewers along with an offering of seasonal and small-batch selections as part of its rotating “Chalkboard Series.” The glass-enclosed keg room showcases hundreds of steel barrels containing some 4,000 gallons of beer that flow to the center island bar through an extensive network of tubing positioned overhead. From there, the beer is fed to the taps where it’s served ice-cold by the pint, 9-ounce shorty, goblet, or half-yard glass container. Yard House is also well-known for its classic and alternative rock boasting a library of 5,000 songs, with each location having its own distinct playlist.
