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.

“Excellent Southern Comfort Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013

We went to this restaurant based on "The Chew's" recommendation. They knew exactly what they were talking about. We made a 9:45pm reservation and we were seated no more than 5 minutes later. It is a very busy restaurant and I was impressed by how on-time they were. The Chicken under a brick and The Shrimp and Grits were to die for. Sharing their entrees was a great way to taste a number of dishes. After ordering we asked our server if he thought this was enough. He was completely correct. Will definitely be back.

“The bird is the word; Yardbird”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I went for a lunch service. Cool, quaint spot with a hint of southern, prohibition era decor. Prices aren't cheap. All sides sold separately which drives up the price to about $30 per person for a sandwhich and a side; but you definitely know where your money is going. Healthy portions with quaility ingredients! My turkey pastrami sandwich was incredible; it was massive and all the components were on point. The bread, turkey pastrami, fennel/apple slaw and pickled red onions. Each component tasted amazing by itself and even better together. I recommend the mac and cheese as a side order. My girlfriend haf the Yardbird chicken sandwich with the corn side and loved every bite. Great local place making great food with local ingridents.

“all about food - not about scene”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

this place is very refreshing. All about food and not necessarily about see and be seen. Felt I was in suburbs - near strip mall. But the food itself was very good. Not necessarily suitable for very large parties though. 4-5 people is probably ideal.

“Upscale southern food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2013

Yardbird is just a block or two off of Lincoln Road and if you visit you will not be sorry that you did. The food is wonderful...even the simple Wedge Salad has a different dressing then the usual. Fried Green Tomato BLT is worth every delicious calorie and the brisket sandwhich was divine. I would eat here everyday if I could!
