This culinary haven is just a couple of blocks off Lincoln Rd Mall. I have always been skeptical about Chicken and Waffles, fried chicken and fried green tomatoes. Mac and Cheese always has seemed to me to be a simple and plain option, I usually don´t think of deep fried as fine dining ........... Man did Yardbird change my mind!!... More

This place was cool. Great food. Most entrees are meant to share between two people. It's a good idea to make a reservation.

My friends and I stayed in South Beach for a few nights and were looking for a close-by place to go enjoy some good food. Our concierge recommended Yardbird. It was very close to where we were and the food was amazing. You can also watch games there and enjoy of a great beer selection.

It was so noisy inside, we opted to dine outside in the evening heat. A breeze kicked in and so it wasn't so bad. What made all the difference was the delicious fried chicken and cool watermelon side. I've never quite tasted fried chicken this good.

I've been here a few times now, the food is exceptional and the service as well! They are known for their fried chicken, but really everything on the menu is delicious. Starting with the fried green tomatoes to the shrimp and grits. I highly recommend Yardbird but I suggest you make a reservation otherwise be ready for long waits!

OMG!!! The fried chicken is the best I have tried. The chicken wings are to die for and the chicken, waffles and watermelon were a crowd pleaser. But wait! Save some space for dessert cause the deep fried Oreos and the Nutella filled beignets are above and beyond!!! Their signature drink, the bourbon lemonade is really good. Will come back... More

Visited Yardbird during a bachelorette weekend. They were able to accommodate our large party size, and the waitress seemed to handle the demands well! Refreshing cocktails, and some of the tastiest deviled eggs you've ever had. Worth the visit!

We had some form of miscommunication with a driver and ended up at Yardbird. We weren't exactly dressed for a nice restaurant, so I do personally appreciate the hostess and waiters not making a big deal out of it. Im glad that they didn't, because this was some of the best chicken and biscuits that I've ever had! I could... More

This was the first restaurant we went to on our Miami vacation. It was a GREAT and PERFECT start to our vacation. We ordered the chicken and waffles, the waffles were amazing and went perfectly w/ the honey hot sauce and bourbon syrup!! Enough said. The chicken and biscuits....they were just ok, I ate the chicken but not the biscuit.... More

This was our first trip to Miami Beach. The decor was tasteful yet rustic. Wait staff were efficient, approachable and friendly. The menu could be confusing to those unfamiliar to southern cuisine. Great fried chicken and the fried green tomato BLTs were excellent. A little overpriced but would definitely recommend.

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.
