Great vibe and house music. Ordered fried chicken (signature dish), roasted cauliflower, biscuits (signature dish) and grits. Grits were delivered cold, chicken so-so. Took waiter 20 minutes to bring drinks. Biscuits and cauliflower were great. Too bad I wasn't looking forward to losing weight this evening.

I went for brunch no wait, Everything we had was very good , the fried chicken and waffles were good but not crunchy, very moist chicken. Could have used the crunch on the skin. Biscuits were bomb. Not fresh juice desert looked good but to full to try. I'm sure dinner is really good as well.

On my last visit to Miami, was recommended to visit this place. And I was really awed by the fried chicken with water melon and waffles. Simply the best fried chicken I've had any where across the globe. Efficient and friendly service, a must do if you happen to be in Miami !!

Great new addition nearby south beach. Hip and upscale sort of in dustrial enbiance, a great new offering in SoBe. Gotta have as appetizers the blt sliders if with a small group of people. The 1/2 chicken fried chicken with waffles (36.00) is a must and good to share. We had good weat beer.

Forget the other items...fried chicken and biscuits make this one a nice diversion from the typical SOBE dining experience. Great service and an attentive reception with a recommended reservation. Don't sit outside near the ivy wall! Enjoy the passers by and the local pups with their hungry owners.

If you're not into Southern food look elsewhere for your lunch or dinner. If you want some of the best fried chicken in Florida this is your heaven. First of all the service was impeccable. Also we had some very creative drinks that harmonized with our food in an incredible manner. The deviled eggs were amazing. Butter lettuce and grilled... More

Had brunch here with some friends. Very nice atmosphere. Great food. I tried the biscuits with fried chicken and it was some of the best fried chicken I've ever had. Just amazing. My friends loved what they got too. This place is pricey though but you can get away with spending under $20 if you're frugal. Otherwise it's an easy... More

This is my 2nd trip to Yardbird, and it was another great meal. The portions are ample for sharing. The food is well prepared in their open kitchen. The staff is attentive. I went on a busy, late Sunday night, and the service was as good as an earlier brunch meal. The cocktails are good, and a nod to the... More

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.
