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.

Amazing!

Wait staff was wonderful, food was incredible, drinks were creative, strong, and delicious - we didn't have room from dessert! We're from Boston and were Miami celebrating my 40th bday. We enjoy good food, and we expected to enjoy the great Cubam food in Miami the most - but this was the last... read more

If you can find better Chicken and Waffles anywhere, you have to let me know. The Chicken was so tender, and the sauces, well, you'll have to taste them to understand. Be advised; unless you have a huge appetite, one order will feed two. They offer a wide veriety of sothern dishes. You can expect to see the usual suspects... More

Just book a table and eat here, you won't be disappointed. We ordered a Mac 'n Cheese and the Chicken (watermelon and waffles) - both dishes were excellent. So much so, we are already planning to go back before the end of our holiday!

Service during the day could be improved, but the food is still good. We ordered the Yardbird Chicken Sandwich with an Arnold Palmer which was fantastic, however not only did our first server completely forget about our table, the second server seemed overwhelmed. I've been here for dinner, and even though the establishment was busier, they managed to keep up... More

Wow! A perfect meal, from the service, to the flavor infusions, that explode new flavors throughout your mouth, with every bite. Their signature dish is Chicken N watermelon N waffles.. Which is great.. And does provide you with the best fried chicken you’ve ever tasted… But don’t miss the rest of the menu.. We dined here twice and with 4... More

This is so far, our favorite restaurant from our recent visit to South Beach. The fried chicken and homemade biscuits (and sauces) are fantastic! The ambience is wonderful as was our server (the bartender). A great experience all around. Thank you!

Francisco (Frank) was a great server; the food was awesome .... as always. Great spot that must be checked out if visiting or made a regular haunt for us locals. This spot really does it all right ... from bar/drinks to food to service. Yardbird puts a welcome sophisticated twist to traditional Southern cuisine. This restaurant has been so successful...

Was here a year ago and came back into town for a visit and this was immediately on our list for restaurant options. Still highly impressed with the food and menu choices. We had some repeat issues and tried a few new ones. Portions are still huge so highly recommend sharing! Their biscuits are to die for and you get... More

Wonderful afternoon with friends. The food and service was great! The chicken was so juicy and tender and crispy on the outside. My mango salad was the best salad ever. This place is highly recommended.
