Our server julio was great! Love the people watching, had to wait for a table and bar was crowded but he had a quick drink next door and the host called us back for the next table!! Would come back every visit!

Our waiter was fantastic and helped us choose all of the food. The biscuits--ham and fried chicken--were great and the short rib entree was fantastic. The cheese grits were decadent and delicious. Cocktails were unique and good.

As foodies we had Yardbird on our list of places to visit while in Miami. We went for lunch fresh off the plane, as we waited to get checked into our room, and we were hooked from the first bite. We had deviled eggs, and they were delicious, but that fried chicken was beyond explanation. I had no intention of... More

My husband and I stopped over at the Yardbird for our final meal in Miami before heading to the airport. He had the Chicken and Waffles and gave it a big thumbs up, and declared the house Old fashioned one of the best he's ever had. I had the Shrimp and Grits and heirloom tomato salad. Both excellent. The blackberry... More

Best fried chicken and waffles I've had thus far. Chicken was tender and juicy on the inside and crispy on the outside. And it's perfectly spiced! And the waffles OMG soooo good! Cornbread and Mac n cheese are worth mentioning as well.

One of the best southern restaurant food I had in a while not being in the south. I would highly recommend going here if your in the south beach area.

The food is great - you don't need to order too much as the servings are huge, but it's also worth trying a few different things - especially the fried chicken. Friendly, attentive staff and lively atmosphere. Definitely worth the walk away from the generally average food closer to Collins St.

I eat here every time I'm in Miami Beach....the food is so good. Tables are usually easy to find on Opentable if you check a few weeks out. I've also had success in checking daily during my trips to find last-minute tables opening up for that night. Everything I've had on the menu has been delicious, especially the deviled eggs,...

Anything in a biscuit is great. Fried chicken is excellent and the new, BBQ chicken is backyard quality ( really good). Fried green tomato app is a must try as well. We go to SoBe once a year ( with my son) to deep sea fish and stay 7-10 days. We usually eat here 3 times during that stretch so... 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.
