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.

“Good Ole Southern Cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 7, 2014

A friend of mine suggested I try this place upon my next visit to South Beach and the food was wonderful. The atmosphere is very cool and funky and it just has a nice vibe to it. The food is quite excellent. I had the ribs, which were heavenly, the fried chicken (which is marinated for 27 hours) was quite good also. The mac and cheese was tasty. Unfortunately, didn't have room for desert because the meal was so filling. I absolutely will be eating here again and I suggest to every and anyone who will be visiting South Beach in the near future. Kudos YardBird!

“wow!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

The chicken biscuit sandwich is divine. The ribs are the best we've ever had. Loved the BBQ sauce. Desserts were a hit as well. Our waitress, Stephanie, was very friendly and helpful--made good recommendations. The food came out quickly. We will definitely return the next time we're in Miami. We wish there was one in NYC!

“One of the best meals I've had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 1, 2014

I went for a bachlorette weekend and our last dinner was at Yardbird and it was the best meal ever. I'm from NYC and wish they had a Yardbird in NYC.

You have to order the chicken and waffles, ribs, okra, bisquits and mac and cheese! And don't forget dessert, you can't go wrong!
