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.

We sat at the bar because the wait for a table was long. The bartender was super friendly and chatty. The food is delicious, comfort food - definitely not good for you but really delicious. A great spot.

After walking from our B&B in South Beach we stumbled on Yardbird. My husband wanted a gin mary so we stopped in. From the moment we entered the restaurant we knew we had a winner. We had breakfast with our bloody Mary's and made reservations for dinner that night. The best part of Yardbirds is their innovative cocktails and the... More

Fried green tomato BLT and fried chicken! This is a great place that was busy but well worth the wait. Great food, great drinks, great service and atmosphere.

I definitely recommend this place. Make reservations ahead of time because it is popular. The Chicken, watermelon, and waffles were amazing. Fried green tomato BLT was highly recommended but it was just ok to me. It's a loud restaurant but a great vibe and good décor. Definitely worth checking out.

Had an unbelievable desert as well...Banana cream pie with bourbon ice-cream. Obviously not for everyday dining, but as a treat you have to eat here! Ambiance... More

Enjoyed dinner with spouse and a couple of dear friends. Between us we have 75 years of senior leadership working for international hospitality company. This experience clearly outshone many we have enjoyed over the years. Our waiter took complete charge of our evening and suggested everything from appetizers, to entrees, to sides, and dessert. He suggested where we could share... More

Not a "go to" food for us, but this was really good. The chicken was moist and crispy, with a great sweet and spicy sauce. Didn't think you could grow chickens that big! The Mac n cheese was very good too.

We came due to the great review on tripadvisor. It was busy, lucky we made a reservation. Service is great. As for food. We really like the small courses. Loved the chicken liver toast and frog legs. The grilled mango salad is yummy too. The main fried chicken courses are nice. But fried chicken is just fried chicken. Not too... More
