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.

the food was so delicious at Yardbird that we ate here twice during our 6 nights in South beach. Every single thing was wonderful, - the fantastic blackberry drink, the fried chicken, the shrimp and grits and the desserts- yum. the only thing that wasn't my favourite was the ribs, but my husband and son devoured them. My mouth is... More

This place is loud and lively on a weekend. The food is very good, with southern specials done right -- we had the shrimp and grits and fried chicken which were both great. I was dissapointed at the desert menu -- no pecan pie soaked in bourbon with vanilla icecream... we opted to just skip it as the selection wasn't... More

Had a 9pm reservation there last week. Was super busy at that time, all the tables were full up and there was still a line to get in. Was seated within 15 minutes. Ordered the blackberry lemonade cocktail- to be honest it was a little too strong for me but it was presented nicely and if you like burbon more... More

Really love the shrimp and grits at this place! I think they had changed them slightly since we've visited the prior year, but they were still delicious. I've heard their fried chicken is amazing too but I love the shrimp and grits so much it's hard to not order it!

just wanted to reiterate a previous review - we were walk in last Sunday with 7 people right after open and Yardbird staff was terrific. We were seated quickly. Ate and drank slowly (we were introducing add'l family members to the restaurant) and enjoyed Yardbird as much this time as we have other times. Excellent service as per usual. Whoever... More

"Full" disclosure: I'm from the rural South, where this cuisine is commonplace. This place is "as billed"….excellent service, drinks and food. The problem being: There's no light fare here to speak of. For my taste, everything was overly breaded, fried or squeezed between biscuits and waffles. It's awesome, but you'd better come famished or really jones'n for a feedbag of... More
