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.

All the meat!

Excellent food and service, good value for the price. We went for Sunday brunch and had the cheddar waffle, chicken and biscuits, and watermelon. My husband had a bloody mary, which he said was very strong (a good thing! If I was not 20 weeks pregnant I would have had one also!). For quality food with great flavors, and something... More

Variety of choices all good and delicious. Had the frog legs and they were cooked to prefection and were well seasoned. If you're in South Beach, Miami you must definately try it out. The staff are friendly and the services is exceptional.

Yardbird offers an excellent approach to Southern family style dining. They have a fairly decent selection of Southern style entrees, but the reason your coming here is for the fried chicken. We did the chicken, watermelon, and waffle, and didn't regret it. The chicken is juicy and delicious, and it is nicely complemented by the honey Tabasco sauce they offer.... More

This was a fun dinner out, we ate outside on the patio and it was a beautiful night to do so. The food was very good and we all tried different things. It's a bit pricey but it was a nice dinner. Would recommend.

Just terrific. The chicken sandwich available on the weekdays was amazing. I wish it was part of their weekend brunch menu as well! Will be back next time we're in town

Pretty much the best fried chicken and waffles my husband and I have ever eaten (have lived all over and take several trips a year). Service was thorough and friendly...start to finish, we thought it was well worth the walk from South Beach.

Amazing! We had a table booked, were offered the outdoor seating, were unhappy and went back to the bar and had a wonderful time. Great food and service, wine list is well-organized and varied. With several wines at every price range. Get the chicken and waffles!!
