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.

The title of this review says it all. My family and I ate at a lot of nice places while in South Beach, and I think this may have been our favorite. Come with a large group so you can order lots of different plates and try a little bit of everything. This is an absolute must if coming to Miami!

“Food, atmosphere and service to travel for!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

We arrived in Miami for the last part of our Honeymoon and took a walk down Lincoln Road. There were plenty of nice places to eat but nothing that really caught our eye for lunch. We stumbled on Yardbird just off Lincoln and decided to eat there for Friday lunch. I am so glad that we found it!

The restaurant has beautiful decor with stripped wood and black paint murals with down home sayings that make it feel almost agricultural. Clean lines and bare metals add a fresh modern feel.

We were greeted by a friendly member of staff on entering and, on taking a quick look at the Menu, were sat quickly. Our server was incredibly friendly, efficient and knowledgeable. He gave us his recommendations on the Menu and answered any questions that we had.

The Menu itself was full of dishes you would expect to find in a Southern American eatery; Fried Chicken, Pulled Pork Sandwiches, Fried Catfish. I decided, on our server's recommendation, to have the Short Rib Sandwich and a Sweet Ice Tea while my Wife had the Lean Chicken Meatloaf. The food came quickly, was of incredible quality, well cooked and perfectly flavoured. I must have drunk about 4 glasses of the Ice Tea, too, as it was refilled as soon as I got

On our 2 week Honeymoon in Florida we travelled from Orlando to Key West and ate in a great many places. This was, by far, the best place we ate. We tried to go back for Dinner on the Monday night but, as it was so busy and we had no reservation, we had to eat elsewhere. So, my only advice would to be to try and make a reservation. It'll definitely be worth it!

“Good southern comfort food on SoBe”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

We dined on a busy evening during a peak tourism week. At first I tried to arrange an Open Table seating online and nothing was listed as available at a convenient time, so I contacted the restaurant by phone directly and my request was immediately granted. The "Maitre'D/ hostess was great in honoring my prime time request even though the restaurant was quite busy that night

The buttermilk biscuits appetizer was excellent. The fried chicken was good, but a little bit peppery for my personal taste. Mac & Cheese side was great. Portions are serve family style so they can be shared by two. We also had a shrimp and grits dish which was good too. The "Mounds Jar" desert was a nice chocolate/coconut mousse treat, but a little small to share. Service was prompt and pleasant. The music was a little loud for our conversation.

Great food, great service, awesome open restaurant with a view into the kitchen. i'll say the only thing was that it was kind of distracting to see all that delicious food coming out of the kitchen but it was great. make a reservation! we made a reservation about 4 days before we got to miami. best idea ever!
