Yardbird Southern Table & Bar
I was impressWe sat outside the food was great met the chef that made the evening. The fried chicken and fried tomatoes plus grits where unbelievable. I was not to keen on mashed potatoes and strawberry cheesecake. We will go back again I do give them a 10.6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDelish!Great vibe and delicious food. Loved the drinks too! Shrimp and grits, mac n cheese, its all fantastic!6/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGo to the Yardbird!Referred by a business client and boy was he right. Great place and great food......had brunch on SAT with my wife. Food was wonderful, service very good. Only down side is you are within 1 to 2 feet from the table next to you and you simply cannot have a conversation without hearing the subject at the next table; noise level very "energetic"....as in loud. But in the end worth a special trip!6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceWe really enjoyed our meal here. The green tomato appetizer is not to be missed. You should also listen to your server when you are advised on the amount of food to order--we had way too much and ate it all!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMSouthern food w/a South Beach flairThe food is solidly rooted in traditions from the south, but without meat as the focus. Plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables cooked perfectly, presented in an appetizing manner with excellent service. We liked everything we ordered, and would definitely go back!6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place was amazing withThis place was amazing with absolutely delicious food! It is a MUST for anyone coming through Miami.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMChicken as it should beThe chicken was crispy, flavorful and very moist. My wife had the shrimp and grits. she loved it as well. They make some great drinks too. It's a must try!! We'll be back for sure.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWe loved having lunch at Yardbird!The food and service were great while visiting Miami. We loved it so much we returned for brunch. You cannot go wrong with what ever you order but you have to order the maple donut. We would probably return to Miami just to eat here.5/24/2013 12:00:00 AMgood restaurant, has no high chairsThe food was very good but they will not provide high chairs, even though they take strollers which take up much more room. I don't understand the logic when they say they "don't have the space."5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food and serviceI work in retail so I have a support high expectation for customer service. The staff at Yardbird definitely meet that standard. They were helpful in making decisions of what to order. Initially, I ordered the fried chicken with macaroni and cheese and fries but our easier suggested only one side. I'm glad he was honest because just one side was more than enough. My date ordered the ribs which were easily the most delicious, tender ribs I've consumed in my entire life. The restaurant has a trendy, Miami chic feel but it wasn't pretentious. I highly recommend this place.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved loved loved it!The food was so delicious we raved about it long after we had left. One of the great dining experiences..for fun, casual, delicious dining! Loved it!5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingWe did a three-week roundtrip and always selected restaurants based on very good reviews.
However, I'd say Yardbird was the best food we had in those three weeks: We absolutely loved it.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome foodI'm from Texas. We fry chicken in our sleep, but Yardbird in Miami has the best fried chicken I've ever tasted. No lie. Everything about this restaurant was great; the decor, the atmosphere, the service, and most of all - the food! Me and my wife ordered the Watermelon Whiskey cocktail during lunch and it was delicious (and strong). They have an open kitchen, so you can see how much all their chefs enjoy cooking here. This is not a typical "Miami" place, but it is the best restaurant in Miami, without a doubt. I wish they had a Dallas location because I'm gonna miss this place when I'm gone.5/21/2013 12:00:00 AMWow! What a place!It was my first time experiencing Yardbird, and I'm glad I tried it. Took my parents out for dinner, and they loved every minute of it! Found out that their style of food is to share with everyone at the table, so it was a little different that we all had to agree on what to eat, but it was well worth it. The server was great at explaining dishes since it was our first time, and helped us with our choices. Low light setting would be great for any couple. Overall, the food was delicious & the atmosphere was energetic. Food also came out within 10 minutes compared to most restaurants that take forever.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellentVery good. Creative gourmet approach to Southern food. It is better order dishes to share and taste different flavors. Nice atmosphere5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch, Lunch or DinnerYardbird is consistently delicious and has the best Bloody Mary on the beach. Although, I was disappointed to see that the two strips of bacon in the Bloody have been reduced to one. I hope it was a temporary shortage...5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWe took a friend to Yardbird for a birthday dinner. It was a first visit for all of us. We loved everything about the restaurant! We argued the next day about what we would eat on our next visit. A winner!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Favorite on South BeachCould eat here every night. Southern comfort food made with flair and care. Fantastic fried chicken. Great mac and cheese. Fried oysters, shrimp with grits (yes!) and biscuits all delicious. Also great ribs, huge porterhouse, surprising fish, inventive salads (warm brussels sprouts leaves was a favorite). As if Daniel Boulud grew up in Tuscaloosa. Scene inside is energetic and cozy. Outside patio has a quieter vibe, but still vibes. Lots of cool beers on tap. Terrific, relaxed servers who go out of their way to be helpful and try to prevent you from over-ordering/over-eating, but good luck with that. Plan ahead cause tables are hard to come by, especially weekends. Can't wait to go back.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousBest fried chicken I have ever tasted. The fried green tomato BLT was expertly crafted as well. Yum!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!I loved yard bird! The service was exceptional ! Not once did I have to wait or try to find my server. They were very attentive ! I would definately recommend this restaurant to my friends!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMToo early!My party and I arrived at the time of opening hours. Some of our food was cold and the chicken didnt taste like the first time I was their. I really love this place and fell in love with it the first time I went. Gonna give it another try and go back. Hopefully it was just that we arrived too early. The food that came out cold was taken back with no problem and they brought out more food that was hot,5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyThe food was excellent, we were seated at a table with no waitress and it took about 15 minutes before we were taken care of but they were apologetic and did give us some biscuits on the house. This probably isnt the best palce for kids- they didn't have high chairs and it was alittle hard for us to find food for our toddler (the buscuits and jelly were a hit- just not very nutritious :)).5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty GoodEnded up eating a bit more than I expected, but that's only bc everything looked good. I really enjoyed it.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely RavishingThe good was great! The drinks were tasty & service perfect.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFried Chicken for the SoulWe have been wanted to check this restaurant out for months. The staff was incredibly cordial, from the hostess, bartender, server and everyone in between. We loved the food and already made a reservation to return. My husband and I are huge fans now.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were looking for an authenticWe were looking for an authentic American cuisine and that was it! We simply followed excellent recommendations from our waiter and enjoyed it. Pleasant, vibrant atmosphere and great personnel. Highly commended!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!The best restaurant I've been to in South Beach in a while. amazing service, everyone there was friendly and when my friend dropped her wedding ring on the floor, all the surrounding tables got up to help find it!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Awesome AwesomeMy boyfriend and I have been on a very strict diet for a while now so when it comes to our cheat meal we like to find new and exciting places to go. Yardbird was everything I hoped it would be and more! We shared the fried chicken and waffles (which was out of this world), the Mac and cheese (still drooling), and the house fries with bacon salt (my boyfriends favorite). Couldn't be more happy. I still daydream about the food!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is the best keptThis place is the best kept secret! Was recommended to us by friends and its everything they said. The food is amazing (differant than the usual dining menu which We loved) the service is outstanding (and we eat out A LOT) and the decor is so unigue, warm and litterally soo cool. Only one bad thing...wish it was closer to our home but we will still make the drive from Fort Lauderdale! Going back again on Sunday for brunch for our 25th wedding Anniversay!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were still full 5 hours later!This place was worth the trek from the "strip". My friend and I went for lunch. The food was awesome and we were full for a long time. The water was very helpful when choosing our meals, since the menu is challenging to navigate for "first-timers". Definitely bring your appetite!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic. Ham andFood was fantastic. Ham and eggs with grits, hangar steak, and watermelon tomato salad were delicious and with just enough something extra to make them special. We will definitely return!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience. Thanks Yardbird!I made lunch reservations on administrative assistants day and what a great choice. The menu was a chock full of awesomeness so it was difficult to decide. We shared a wedge salad, then I had the fried chicken and my guest had turkey pastrami sandwich. Then we had carrot cake for dessert. Everything was excellent. I brought my leftovers home and my husband at them. He could not stop raving!All in all Yardbird made our special day even more special. I am not sure I would go there to propose, but if you are looking for good food and great service, you can count on Yardbird! A+4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYou better believe that chickenYou better believe that chicken needs to run, otherwise it will end up being one of the most delicious pieces of fried chicken you will eat. Servers were extremely attentive (just on the right side of not being annoying though). The dining room is bright and airy with a little whimsical feel to it. Decent drink menu. Overall, no complaints and I would definitely go back next time I'm in Miami Beach.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMimpressive southernfood. Pleaseimpressive southernfood.

Fried oysters, chicken and biscuits with pepper jelly...delicious!!!! Absolutely one of my best meals ever!!!! Which is hard to do.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMReal Food in South BeachYou'd never know this gem was in south beach as everyone things of Lincoln Road, Washington Ave or Ocean Drive. Walk/cab a few blocks in to 16/Lenox & get some real food, Southern style but upscale classy! The chicken biscuits were awesome as were the stuffed oysters. Portions are definitely large enough to share. We also had the ribs and took them back to the hotel for lunch the next day. Hubby had to try dessert, a southern take on key lime with home made whipped cream. Missed out on the wonderful bourbons, but the beers were great.
a must visit - make a reservation!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food great interiorWe had a great birthday lunch! Our waitress explained everything very well and everybody in the staff were friendly.

Delicious options for the adults and also appealing to the kids. Highly recommend! We loved the watermelon salad, the biscuits, the chicken, the brisket sandwich and the lemon-buttermilk pie. Would have gone back the next day, but had to catch a plane!4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSpectacular foodThe food was excellent and it was very vibrant. I can't wait to try more dishes.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were equal to the hype. A perfect experience was ruined by a pushy group next to us who tried to commandeer our space. The management was apologetic but allowed it to continue after we got up and another group sag diwn4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, but priceyFood was good, but pricey for brunch ($100 for 2 people with only one mimosa each). Throw the diet out the window - grits are super cheesy, fried chicken (these are big birds - probably not really free range yard birds) is way too much. The salads, on the other hand, are way too small. I may go back, but it's hard with so many other good and reasonably priced brunch places on South Beach. Also, a major strike for me was that they did not offer decaf coffee - only regular.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is phenomenal. TheirThe food is phenomenal. Their fried chicken is hands down the best I've ever had. The only downside is that the restaurant is ridiculously loud. You do get used to it after awhile, but it's a bit of a shock when you first sit down.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic fried chicken andFantastic fried chicken and bourbon cocktails.
