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 went to Yardbird for lunch and had fantastic authentic southern food. The atmosphere was really nice and it is just off of the main shopping street so convenient as well. Fried Chicken and Waffles was great

This is a pretty neat restaurant but just not my style. The dishes are not the large but enough for two. Service there is great (waiter/waitress/managers) very helpful and polite. The mac n cheese is a must.

This isn't your momma's country cookin' - no it's far, far, far better than that. The Saturday brunch was so good in fact that it's difficult even to provide an appropriate review. A scan down the menu presents more problems than it does solutions; chief among the issues being that it all sounds absolutely necessary to order. Our server did... More

OMG, I went to Yardbird for brunch a couple of weeks ago and I swear, I literally felt that I was rolling out by the time I was done. The food is amazing. There wasn't one thing that we tried that wasn't to die for. We had cocktails while we were waiting for our table and the service and the... More

How this place ends up as one of the top rated restaurants in Miami is beyond me. We ordered the fried chicken and ribs to share. Both were what you would expect from a cafe or chain. Just average plain fried chicken and average ribs. Nothing wrong with them but certainly nothing special. Both come with no sides just 3... More

Here is a country boys take on the Yardbird. Went for lunch and the place was well designed and homey. Wait staff was excellent. I had the fried green tomato BLT and it was divine. I also ordered the Mac & Cheese, which was amazing. The shrimp and grits were good but wont rival Savanna Ga.'s Shrimp & grits. My... More

So many choices. Picked numerous items off the menu & shared and doggy bagged for later.We had fried chicken with waffles tabasco syrup.and watermelon. Mac n' cheese was to die for as were the ribs- meat just fell off the bone, so moist tender & great flavor.

We got there, 8 adults and 5 kids. They made us wait more than hour. Those that had been there before convinced us it was worth while. They finally got us the best table in the house. Food was great, everyone was happy after we were seated.
