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.

“Is there a bad meal here???”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 21, 2013

This is my second time at Yardbird and the only problem is I want to order one of everything! The best fried chicken I have ever eaten....the biscuits are unbelievable...The St. Louis ribs fall off the bone....the fries are also the best I have ever had. I can’t wait to come back to Miami to visit again.
The service....bartenders, waiters, and waitresses....all are as good at it gets.

Thanks for another great experience.

“Good food and service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2013

My family and I enjoyed a very filling dinner here on a recent holiday in Miami.

We had the southern chicken and ribs. Although the meals are expensive they are sufficient to feed at least 3 normal human beings. The food is tasty too. Our server was very attentive.

The only downside is the restaurant has the a/c on full blast - so wrap up!

“Soooo Good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Yardbird was definitely worth every penny. My husband and I were able to share the chicken/watermelon/waffle combo. The mac&cheese and fries were AMAZING! Nice ambiance as well, very relaxed. Soooo good!

This was my first time having chicken and waffles and it was delicious!! The bourbon maple syrup sent the waffles to next level of yum!. The atmosphere was fun and the service was great...I would definitely go back the next time I go to Miami.
