Description: Bringing the best fried chicken and freshest farm ingredients from Florida...
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.

There was so much good food at Yardbird! I went for dinner with my husband and some friends on out last day in Miami. Be sure to make reservations. We tried to go on an earlier day but couldn't get in. I left completely stuffed. I say this and I'm a vegetarian. The green beans, cauliflower... read more

The fried chicken lived up to all the hype. You get 1/2 chicken, cut into individual pieces. The biscuits were also excellent. The salad wedge was unbelievable. My husband shared everything but he was tempted to order another wedge. He also had the mac and cheese and said it was excellent also. Service was fantastic. Our tea glass never got... More

This place is always at the top of my must visit list in South Beach! Can not find a single fault - food is amazing, great service, drinks and surroundings all at a very reasonable price compared to some of the nearby places. The first time we visited the waited recommended a few dishes ( which we got ) and... More

My husband wanted to go here while we were in Miami Beach, so today we went for a late lunch (around 2). The place is trendy and bigger inside than outside which was good for a cloudy and windy day like today. The place was packed even at such an off hour. You should probably book a reservation to make... More

We visited the Yardbird for lunch on a Tuesday at 1pm. We thought we would try and avoid the lunch rush. It was still extremely busy when we got there, but luckily we had a reservation. We found it inconvenient to find out they DO NOT have high chairs or booster seats. That is why I would say it isn't... More

The food was very good Southern comfort food. The service was good. The place is a bit loud and crowded. The wine list isn't very good.

Brunch menu seemed a bit limited but was still delicious. Biscuits and the fried chicken are by far best items on menu. If you like deviled eggs they're quite good also. Service was good and friendly but not great. Fried oreos are amazing as well. Make reservations to avoid long wait lines....

I took my young daughter out on a walk in South Beach this past weekend, looking for a nice place for us to have some bonding time. While looking on OpenTable, I saw Yardbird pop up. I'd heard of it before from friends who are locals (and probably the odd Top Chef episode), and after looking at a menu that... More

I liked the ambiance and the staff were great. They accommodated our large group which included two less than a year babies (they do not have high chairs fyi). Most of the food was tasty but the chicken was definitely dry. Not sure if it was because the chicken took about 5 to 10 minutes more than the rest of... More

Funny, we learned about Yarbird from a friend who had been visiting in the area. We spend a great deal of time in South Beach, and yet had never heard of Yardbird. The friend who told us about Yardbird is a professional chef had a very high-end private club. He raved about it, so I had to give it a... More
