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.

We hit the ground running and my wife insisted that we stop and boy am I glad. From the moment you walk in the door, it is on and popping. We had the most INSANE dish that took me back to when I was a young lad in Louisiana. Imagine this: Perfectly fried chicken, amazing Mac n Cheese and an... More

This review is for BRUNCH! So delightful! We started with the fried green BLT. The "bacon" on it was so thick and delicious. We used the hot sauce from the fried chicken and waffles (not super spicy but more of a sweet spicy) to augment the flavor even more. We all enjoyed the chicken and waffles. The chicken was very...

This is a very casual and delicious place to dine. Forget about calories and just enjoy the wonderful southern fare. We had the 27 hour brined chicken and the waitress told us it would be juicy and it was amazing and juicy even the chicken breast was moist and delicious. The mac and cheese is very rich so might be... More

The restaurant had a great selection of beer, wine and bourbon. Not being a bourbon person, I went for the beer - highly recommend the Pecan Brown - no after taste - very refreshing. We had a large group of 12 people, the restaurant accommodated us well. The service was excellent, on time, on the spot and 100% accurate -... More

We had the fried chicken, fries and mac cheese shared between 3. This was enough. The chicken, and the mac and cheese were amazing. I would also recommend the Strawberry Balsamic Daiquiri and Watermelon Sling if you are in the mood to try cocktails. The location is set back abit, but there was a good atmosphere inside.

This place was amazing! Everyone in my party was stuffed. As another traveler mentioned, parking can be a nightmare, but the food at Yardbird is worth the hassle. Our waiter was very friendly too and he looked like the character Richard from LOST. :)

We came here because my wife saw it on a local tv show. Trying to find parking in that area of South Beach is a nightmare, but the restaurant itself is amazing looking. We order some biscuits as our appetizer. They were great and came with even better honey butter. We ordered a massive plate of chicken and waffles with... More

This place was recommended by my sorority sister and it was perfect! The favorite at the restaurant is the Chicken, waffles, and watermelon. The chicken is seasoned to perfection, the waffles were good..i didn't care for the green topping but you can easily scrape it off. The watermelon was seasoned almost like a marinade vinaigrette...MMM!! Did i mention the homemade... More

We visited Yardbird for Sunday brunch and many told us that we had to have their house special - fried chicken, cheese waffles and watermelon. To me fried chicken for breakfast is an odd choice but it totally works. We didn't have the whole platter, rather we picked smaller plates off the menu including fried chicken and biscuit, cheese waffles... More
