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.

MISS IT ALREADY!

I'm a southern boy that lives abroad for a while now and haven't had decent southern style food for a while either. We heard of Yardbird and were blown away by the "experience"! So much so that we came back four times and each time it was amazing! First, one must understand that Yardbirds... read more

This place is just outside the Lincold road area on a busy side street. There is outdoor seating but it is limited. The Chiken N Waffles is the main dish and there is no question why, deeeeeeeelicious!

Perfectly fried chicken paired with a cheddar cheese waffle over which one pours bourbon laced maple syrup along side a sweet serving of watermelon. That was the perfect supper meal I had when I visited Yardbird- A Southern Table located on the ultra happening Lenox Ave in Miami. But, first things first- I, and 4 other hungry tennis fans, descended... More

We tried this restaurant for lunch due to the good reviews from TripAdvisor. But we were very disappointed. The ambiance was poor: noisy and the table chairs were very uncomfortable, we had to share a high, narrow long table with other people. When the waiter realized that he could not make us to order three courses dishes for each of... More

We arrived right when they opened at 11:30am and was seated immediately. Great service and the food was good. Shrimp n grits were my favorite and the fried chicken was moist and tender. Definitely a great place with a rustic, masculine, country design. I'd eat here again!

Fantastic atmosphere, but crowded & somewhat noisy with conversation. No cozy private tables here, just LOTS of good food. Amazing large portions, best fried chicken I ever ate.

On a recent trip to Miami, we stopped by Yardbird for lunch and we were not disappointed. Deviled eggs, fried green tomatoes with pork belly, fried chicken and waffles (with amazing sauces), and even the salad we ordered - asparagus and fingerling potatoes - was delicious. And on top of that, great service with friendly staff who cared. Well worth... More

We enjoyed a terrific dinner at Yardbird. The space is very close to Lincoln Road, but not directly a part of it, which is nice. The good was fun and delicious, easy to share. The pace of the meal was good, drinkes were excellent, all in all it was a terrific evening. We will definitely go back when in Miami... More

I've been to Yardbird nearly 10 times over the past three years and have not been disappointed yet. I have a few friends who have told me they don't like southern food, but I always tell them that this is not your typical heavy southern meal. That's not to say it's dietetic, but it's a gourmet version of southern cooking.... More

My husband and I tried Yardbird while in a short stay in the South Beach area. We were so impressed with the entire experience! We had a reservation as it was a Friday night (good thing too - the place was packed). Our server was excellent (though I sadly can't remember his name) and the food was really tasty. We... More
