Serves meat, vegan options available. Sports bar restaurant chain that offers Gardein faux chickn, but the company does not guarantee that food is strictly vegan, i.e. uses shared oil, grill, and cookware. Has vegan buffalo wings, burger with vegan cheese, orange peel chickn, pizza, and among others. Gets very busy so book ahead. Open Mon-Sun 11:00am-12:00am.

Truly Awful - Edit

We had a vegan burger - terrible, mushy and slimy at the same time. Side of salad was a joke, with some truly un-appetizing dressing.
A chicken substitute, it had texture but was spongy.
This was truly an awful meal, and the service was not great. When we said the food was not good, we were waved off, it seemed that as we were eating the veggie options, then we got what we deserved.
It really was not good. Avoid!

Pros: good beer selection

Cons: food, service

Lots of vegetarian options - Edit

There are so many vegetarian options here, they have a section on the menu for the Gardein meals. We had a pizza and the Gardein buffalo wings, the wings were so good! The portion sizes were good as well. We had that and a couple of beers and it only came to just over $22 as we were there for happy hour. Would definitely go back again to try more of the Gardein meals!

Pros: Lots of options for vegetarians, good portion size

Cons: Not sure how vegan friendly it is

Very accommodating - Edit

The Yard have a specific menu containing Gardein fake meat products. They have a vegan burger with vegan cheese. They will adapt any of the other gardein do dishes to make them vegan. All of the dishes on this bit of the menu are already vegetarian. Lots of variety and nice staff. Atmosphere is a bit more 'lunchy' and bar like with sports on the TVs. A great place to visit especially if you want a quick bite.

Good options and food - Edit

We had a good dinner here after a day of traveling. There is a Gardein section of the menu and the server was great at recommending adaptations to make the vegetarian marked items vegan. The lettuce wraps on the app menu with tofu and shiitakes were delicious. Also had the gardein chicken stir fry and buffalo wings and they were both pretty good. Nothing really blew our mind, but was overall decent food, great drinks, and good service.

Good for vegetarians, only sufficient for vegans - Edit

The location and atmosphere may be what you want, and in that case this is maybe your best option, but it's nothing you should go out of your way for if you're looking for vegan food.

Yard House is conveniently located if you're in the shopping/tourist district of Waikiki. The beer selection is amazing.

It seems to get quite crowded. We were quoted a 25 minute wait time, but it didn't take that long. It definitely has something of a sports bar feel with all the screens.

There's a vegetarian section of the menu dedicated to items made with Gardein brand faux chicken. However, while that brand is vegan-friendly they don't seem to have made any sort of effort to have vegan options on that menu. A few I think are accidentally vegan, those that are more Asian food inspired. It's actually really weird, in 2015, to see a restaurant bend over backwards to have a lot of vegetarian food but completely ignore that vegans exist.

I got the lettuce wraps with tofu and mushrooms and the Gardein wings and both were pretty good. If you wanted to press them more on whether other menu items could be veganized, you might have some success. Our server was very good and even double-checked that we had no nut allergies when I order the lettuce wraps, so they may be able to work with you.

I'd give it more stars on something like yelp, but given the focus of Happy Cow, I wouldn't rate it any higher than three.

Pros: Large beer selection

Cons: Limited vegan options, No purposefully vegan options

Gardein menu - Edit

They have a whole area of the menu dedicated to vegetarian options. The food is good, especially for a chain restaurant. There are not many vegan options so I usually only come here for appetizers and drinks.
