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.

I'm sure this restaurant is great for people without food allergies as several people recommended this to us and we saw the reviews on-line. On our gluten-free app, they were recommended, but unfortunately for me, I got so sick I thought my partner was going to have to call an ambulance on the way home. Very disappointing, not a single...

Definitely worth the high reviews it gets online. (That's it in a nutshell, but I can't submit a review without 100 characters, so that's the purpose of this second sentence in parenthesis!)

This restaurant was great. The server was very helpful and friendly. The food was delicious, we had the special corn bread, the tomato salad with this wonderful peanut hummus dressing and of course the fried chicken. I'm usually a healthier eater but for this place I made an exception. The chicken was very light tasting and not greasy at all.... More

Normally we don't touch fried chickens as the last good ones we had was in a little roadside shed in New Orleans years ago. Now unfortunately and fortunately this about to change. We went to Yardbird as it has garnered very positive reviews since its opening in Miami Beach, and our friends, two avid eaters, vouched for its greatness. In... More

I loved this place and will be going back tomorrow for some more chicken. I couldn't fault yardbird. It looks great, the beer and whiskey selection are vast, the service is great and finally the fried chicken with waffles is out of this world. I ate more than I thought possible Go to yardbird, don't eat for a day in... More

Good restaurant of American food. We had the fried chicken with waffles and it was amazing. It was crowded, so an early reservation might be a good idea.

Wow, were we excited to try out this "best friend chicken ever" at Yardbird! Especially because they make a gluten free version of it too. I couldn't wait. We reserved weeks in advance! The moment was finally here! And it was pretty good. The chicken was the least tasty thing we ate. The restaurant itself is great. Our server was... More

Wait staff was amazing, and appeared to LOVE their jobs! 😊we even called the manager out from the back to share our thoughts as well. I will definitely return next time I'm in Miami!

Some restaurants are great due just to a terrific meal. Yardbird takes dining to a different level where the menu delivers really special items that also taste great. Whether ordering from the standard menus or the brunch menu, everything is worth a try. Favorites include the chicken and biscuits, grits, kale salad, and virtually any drink.
