The new Center at the Orlando Eye area of International Drive has really started to take shape in the last few weeks. Yard House is set to open there on April 24th and will bring approximately 200 new jobs to the area along with 140 draft beer selections. The new establishment will span nearly 14,000 square feet and can house as much as 5,000 gallons of beer at one time.
The upscale eatery and taphouse will also feature a rotating list of seasonal and limited release beers in its "Chalkboard Series". Additionally, a continuous playlist of classic and contemporary rock will fill the restaurant, one of the concept’s trademark elements.
"Orlando is a great market for Yard House,” said Craig Carlyle, president of Yard House. “We chose the Center at the Orlando Eye because of the strong appeal of the new development and
its mix of retail, dining and entertainment options. We look forward to showcasing Yard House’s
distinctive beer and food offerings to Orlando’s dynamic mix of residents and visitors.”
The new restaurant will feature 140 beers on tap, each delivered fresh and perfectly chilled by
miles of overhead steel and nylon beer lines to the central island bar. The glass enclosed keg
room, which is kept at a constant 34--‐36 degrees, can house as much as 5,000 gallons of
beer at one time. Guests can order their favorite draft beers as a half--‐yard, traditional pint,
shorty or six--‐pack sampler. The beer list for the restaurant will feature selections from
Florida breweries, including Florida Beer Company and Cigar City Brewing.
The restaurant has dozens of service positions available in the front of house, including
bartenders, servers, and host/hostesses, as well as “heart of house” positions, such as prep
and line cooks. Interested applicants should visit at www.yardhouse.com/careers, where
