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.

Very rich food! not for the health nut or dieters this is real comfort food with a twist, nicely present nice portions, not overwhelming amounts but just enough to share a few things!

We vacation in Miami every August and Yardbird has become one of our regular stops. My husband, who is strictly a meat-and-potatoes kind of guy, moaned his way in pleasure through his chicken and biscuits. The service is always great; the staff friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. Looking forward to another great meal next August!

We ended up here on the recommendation of a friend of a friend. As stated in some of the other reviews, some of the items on the menu can be very hit or miss. We shared the chicken and waffles and the bone in ribeye. The chicken was great, the ribeye sadly was not as tasty as expected. I really... More

Based on reviews I read on TripAdvisor, I went to eat at Yardbird in August. I tried the fried chicken, cheese grits with schrimp and the blackberry burbon drink. All of them were quite tastey and if you visit this restaurant you should try them. Both servers I spoke to were very knowledgeable about the food on the menu and... More

I suppose for South Beach, Southern style cooking is a novelty but I wouldn't eat here twice knowing there are better restaurants around the area. The biscuits were a bit hard and crusty, although the butter and jam toppings made it better. The mac and cheese was pretty generic, not much flavor but definitely cheesy, if that's all you're looking... More

This is not only a fun restaurant but has fabulous food as well. Upon entering you just need to laugh as they have hilarious posted signs all over about eating bacon, and chicken, etc.. Just very fun atmosphere. The biggest challenge was figuring out what to eat from the huge menu. We went on a weekend and were fortunate enough... More
