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.

Loved it!

The smell of fried chicken greeted my husband and I as soon as we entered the restaurant. It was then that I knew I was in for a treat. Yardbird did not disappoint. Not only was the food amazing but, the staff was amazing as well. We ended up splitting an entree as the portions are huge. Even... read more

When there are sushi, Cuban, and taco places on every corner on South Beach, this place really stands out. Was there for Sunday brunch, and the food and service were both great. It's not the healthiest choice obviously, but Sunday is a cheat day, right??

After stumbling upon my first episode of Anthony Bourdain's "Parts Unknown" featuring Miami and South Beach I was intrigued by Yardbird. We tried it last Saturday night at 9:15 using Open Table. The craft beer selection was the best (only) we found on SoBe. We had the fried green tomatoes appetizer and shared the fried chicken and waffles entree with... More

It may be possible that the fried chicken should not be the showcase here. But since it was, that is what our party of four ordered (among other things). I felt that the fried chicken was unimpressive, especially due to the hype it receives. Also, not impressed with the deviled eggs. (I happen to make a better deviled egg). That... More

As seen on Anthony Bourdain's No Reservations, Yardbird evokes true southern comfort with their versatile menu that will have you licking your fingertips. The moist and crunchy chicken is exploding with flavor. Only to accompanied by a trio of infused whiskeys i.e Bacon truffle, honey orange & salted maple bliss. The cheddar waffles drizzled with bourbon maple syrup will melt... More

The first time we went for brunch at the Yardbird we loved the food, the amazing cocktails. The lot. The second time we sat at the bar: long story short, the food came before the appetizers. The bar man informed that food came as it was ready! Seriously ! This last time the BLT Benedict made both my husband and... More

I was born and lived in the south for almost 50 years and have had lots of southern cuisine and this is not at the top of my list of places to try. The serving portion sizes are large but a lack of southern flavor is missing. This place is very busy and reservations is the best way to give... More

The chicken and waffles are FANTASTIC, and enough for two people. Food is fantastic. Best fried chicken I've tasted in a while.

The Scene: After shopping through the Lincoln Road Mall, we worked up an appetite and decided to stop for lunch. The Experience: The decor is just fun, a combination of Southern touches with some rustic and modern flair. The entire menu looked delish, it was hard to narrow down what to get. Ended up going with the fried green tomato... More

I am not a fried chicken fan but this fried chicken is to die for. We also had the mango salad and BLT app. All of the food was fantastic. But the fried chicken with the tanasco hone ho sauce on the side - WOW WOW WOW.
