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.

“Unique and spectacular”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

I have had many great meals but this was unique. Everything was incredible but most of the dishes put everyday ingredients into unique dishes. The service was knowledgeable and extremely helpful navigating the menu and ordering appropriate portions. Drinks were just as unique as the food. Everyone should eat here once in their life.

“Not too Shabby”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

We were a large late nite crew. Manager did a great job accommodating our needs by finding us an outside table. The hostess was not very nice so he provided a great apology for her also. The Chicken was not my favorite but the sides and cocktails are awesome. I loved the Butter Beans and Fried oysters. I have never tasted beans that fragrant and seasoned to perfection. The oysters were served fried on top of a shell the only problem is you only got 4 an order. I would return for the beans and Mac and cheese alone. It would be the perfect carb nite. Lol

“Southern Comfort (Food & Drink)”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

This weekend we made our second visit to Yardbird. Every aspect of this restaurant is wonderful. Decor is so interesting. Staff super-friendly. Both times we have been there for Sunday brunch. First time we had reservations. Second time we were walk-ins (5 people both times). We were seated quickly. Service was spot on. Recommendations and explanation by the wait staff were extensive and fun. We had fried green tomato BLT and Mama's Chicken Biscuits from Small Shares section- Delish! On the Shares menu we ordered Elvis Pancakes, Big Ol Waffles, BLT Benedict (yes, we love Bacon, and OMG this is our favorite menu item), Shrimp & Grits (least favorite) and Fried Chicken. Off the Odds & Ends section: Maple Glazed Bacon Donuts, Cinnamon Apple Hand Pies & Chilled Watermelon. We also enjoyed the House cocktails; Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade and White Whiskey and Watermelon especially. Both times have been visits with family. Kind of loud for romance, but haven't been there during dinner service to know for sure

“Amazing place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013 via mobile

My family and I visited Yardbird for a weekday dinner last week and were so impressed. The service was fast and friendly and our 2 young daughters also really enjoyed the food and the atmosphere. The fried chicken was delicious and their mac and cheese was fabulous. It's a little expensive but well with it for a special meal.
