What You'll Get
The term “gastropub” is derived from the Greek word gastros, which means "stomach," and the Latin word pub, which means "fueling station.” Pump up your empty stomach with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of gastropub fare and drinks at The Yard in St. Petersburg.
The Yard consoles discouraged palates with a menu of tasty pub eats and a full assortment of bar-style beverages. Guests can settle down indoors or find a seat outside, plying their munching trade with deep-fried crusted duck tenders accompanied by a cranberry-orange relish ($7.99), or stuffed poblano peppers packed with veggies or rice and pepper jack cheese ($5.99). Grab a gourmet sandwich such as the soft-shell crab B.L.T. ($9.99) or fill your food hole twice with two Koegel hot dogs buried under National chili and a pile of onions ($4.99). Your whole tongue is a stage, and the 8-ounce flat-iron steak covers it with a flavorful presentation of steak, boursin cheese, grilled veggies, and garlic asiago mashed potatoes ($12.99). Diners can also chew on cornflake-coated chicken and waffles ($8.99), or listen to their stomachs to discover that all they really want is a flatbread pepperoni pizza ($6.99).
The Yard offers its patrons a large backyard that features sand volleyball courts instead of the customary tar pits, allowing children, families, and their dogs to enjoy a fun-filled and sports-focused eating experience. The Yard also entertains visitors by hosting events including open mics and live music.
- A favorite among the flatbreads was the house version of a white pizza topped with shrimp and bacon ($10.99). The crust is thin but chewy, topped with goat cheese and Boursin with spinach and caramelized onions before adding the meat. – Jim Webster, St. Petersburg Times
- We love the Yard. First visit and won't be our last. Definitely a step up from the run-of-the-mill chain food. Most heartily recommend our starters, fried mozzarella and pancetta and stuffed poblano peppers. – notyourmomma, Urbanspoon
