Description: Bringing the best fried chicken and freshest farm ingredients from Florida...
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.

Fried Chicken Paradise

One might think that southern comfort food is incongruous with Miami Beach. One would be wrong. The fried chicken and waffles is absolutely fantastic; the signature cocktails are similarly striking--go for the watermelon. The vibe is upbeat, but it's not over-the-top.

I'm not a huge fan of southern food so I was skeptical after reading the menu and not seeing much that I was interested in. However, my friend really wanted to go so I obliged. We made reservations for 8:30 on a Tuesday night. Upon arriving, we were told it'd be a 30 minute wait for outside seating; we weren't... More

Very good service, amazingly good burgers. The best banana dessert I've had in my life. Not very expensive after all. Don't hesitate!

Went for a late night dinner and was pleasantly surprised. The portions are huge and most importantly amazing. We had the chicken and waffles and I'll most definitely be back. Wait staff was amazing and the ambience was even better. See you all next year.

Always great food and music at Yardbird! Brunch, lunch, dinner or drinks Yardbird NEVER disappoints!I am from a long line of fine Southern cooks here in North Carolina, I would swear that I am at a family reunion here at Yardbird. Chicken and waffles with watermelon is my all time absolute favorite! If you can't quite handle all of that,... More

Amazing southern food with a great atmosphere, wonderful staff and a great bar. Must try any of the bourbon drinks and the chicken and waffles. Simply delightful.

Yes, people I was able to get their famous fried chicken...GLUTEN FREE. It took an additional twenty-five minutes but it was worth it and my partner, not gluten free enjoyed it as well. This place is not for a dieter but you are not going to eat like this everyday anyway. I enjoyed it immensely.

Great quality food, superior service and world class set up. Frog legs, green fried tomatos and grits were in our top of the list! Enjoy!

I did not know what to expect from this venue. Efforts to make “soul” or “country” food look haute couture come off as too much many times. But, this worked. The chicken and biscuits were visually pleasing, properly portioned and true to taste. It was comfort food made to look good in the proverbial tux. Seating was indoor and outdoor.... More

Yardbird provides an amazing dinner experience. This was the last dinner of our trip and it was by far the best. Our server was personable and very helpful throughout. The salted maple infused bourbon was a surprising highlight of the bourbon flight. The BLT app and wedge salad were delicious and a great lead to the main course of chicken... More
