    Great Environment

    Not a place meant for unaltered dogs. They have that policy for a reason and it works. Great time!

    Great place to hang out with your pup!

    This bar is great with friendly staff that make sure the dogs are getting along. They carry local drafts on tap and hold events multiple times a month. I appreciate that they require up to date shots and for the dogs to be spayed/neutered. This keeps everyone safe and happy.

    We couldn’t even go in

    Won’t allow our unaltered trained dogs. Just because your dog isn’t altered doesn’t mean it’s aggressive. Also we have puppies too young to be altered. Ridiculous. One star.

    Perfect Spot

    Visited Austin for the day and this place was perfect! Everyone was very friendly and the beer was great!

    Was super excited to check this place out while in town for business only to find out that dog are not aloud if they are not neutered. Super disappointing that a place would discriminate.

    Ruined Our Day.

    Drove over an hour through traffic only to be told we couldn’t come in because our 4 month old puppy isn’t neutered. They said we could eat behind the restaurant if we wanted to. Looks like we won’t be eating tonight, thanks yard bar. Will not return.

    Great Place To Chill And Have A Beer While Your Pup Plays.

    Love this place. Wish it was closer to me - I live down south. Costs $5.50 to get in or you can buy a monthly pass for $25. If I lived closer I’d totally do this. The food is good and the staff is friendly.

    Perfect spot for a beer after work with your fur baby

    Frequent YB at least three times a week, the $25 a month membership is worth it to go literally any day, any time, all month long. The dogs get the exercise they need especially if you live in an apartment and it's not a bad spot to relax with friends and have a nice beer after work. Or even come to do work from home, school work, etc. during the day thanks to the free wi-fi. Definitely a favorite past time in our home.
