Description: Bringing the best fried chicken and freshest farm ingredients from Florida and Georgia to the table since 2011, Yardbird has since garnered the praises of the James Beard Foundation as a semi-finalist for "Best New Restaurant South" and as one of Bon Appetit's "50 Best New Restaurants" in 2012. Yardbird sticks to the values of tradition, family, and community with a menu of "soul-nurturing" dishes intended for sharing. A warm, comforting environment lets guests feel relaxed and at home while dining at Yardbird. Southern touches add to the nostalgia, like antique candlestick holders, wildflowers on all the tables, and handmade light fixtures outfitted with Edison bulbs in Mason jars.

First let me say, I am not a fan of southern cuisine. Nevertheless, the fun vibe of Yard Bird made it a great place for six friends to get deep into "southern table", and have a lot of fun picking at the family style plates of stuff I would never ordinarily order. No matter--it was all about the experience. Always... More

The hostess was rude on the phone and even worse in person. Food very good. Beware of the Dragon Lady at the front desk.

Yardbird has the greatest down home cookin', great service and no pretense. It's a great favorite with both locals and tourists. Mama's Chicken 'n' Biscuits are insanely good---this New England boy has never tasted such chicken! The drinks are also a wonder.

We visited Yardbird last night for an early sitting. We had four in the group. The food, the service and the wines were very good indeed. The restaurant is well appointed, nicely lit with well spaced tables. The food is the highlight which is always good for a restaurant. The Pork Belly with Fried Green Tomatoes, the Slow Cooked Rack... More

What an experience. All is wonderful in this place. Servers, hostesses, drinks, food all is just great. I wish they open in other locations while keeping those values. The drinks are amazing. Their Bacon infused Old fashioned will make it hard to drink the regular one or regular Whiskey/Bourbon. The food, dessert and drinks are so good that we went... More

Visited South Beach on the way home from a cruise and stopped here for lunch. The food was incredible! I had the Yardbird crunchy chicken sandwich and it was great. Moist and great flavor. My wife had the brisket sandwich and it to was great. Lots of flavor. Service was good also.

We got the fried chicken, waffles, and watermelon. Holy smokes. That is a plate full of heaven. The waffles were cheddar waffles and came with a bourbon maple syrup. I could drink that stuff. So amazing. I cannot stress enough how good that is. They also had a honey hot sauce that was super delicious with the chicken. Oh and... More

I spent a hot sunny Miami morning touring the South Beach area on foot and then turned inland to find Yardbird for lunch. By the time I zigzagged to it, I was hot, sweaty, thirsty and a half an hour too early for their lunch service. And then, they surprised me. They let me in anyway. Even though they were... More

What a delicious meal! Great location, not too far from Lincoln road. While you're waiting for your table, make sure you go to the bar and have one of their specialty cocktails, I had the watermelon sling, a refreshing concoction of watermelon and whiskey. We started with deviled eggs with trout roe. The were creamy and salty from the roe... More

We were in Miami two nights before our cruise. We were planning to go to Yardbird (discovered on our hotel's website as a favorite of one of the staff) on the Friday evening. Upon checking it was full so we moved our dinner there on the Thursday evening. Really enjoyed it. Great friendly waiter, good food - not every day... More
