A word from Yardbird Southern Table & Bar
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 Appétit’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.Continued

  • "Good southern Stlye menu with a little miami spice kind of flare. I'm an Alabama girl and like to cook shrimp & grits but it was even better to have someone else cook them for me. They were delicious! The chicken & biscuits were fabulous too."

  • "This was our third visit, but the first for brunch. My son devoured the fried chicken which was excellent and we enjoyed for the third time our favorite appetizer of fried green tomatoes, pimento cheese, and pork belly--YUM!"

  • "My husband and I got a recommendation to try Yardbird from a business associate of my husband. BOY WAS HE RIGHT!!! We stopped at Yardbird before heading across the Everglades. It was Saturday morning and we were extremely impressed with the food and the service. It's a very cool place. Country, but classy. The decor is farm stand and modern combined. We had the fried green tomato BLT with their home cured pork belly, frisee and pepper jelly. Scrumptious!!! We had the chicken liver toast...sooth and creamy pate on a great grilled bread. Our third pick was the "quiche of the day". It was light and fluffy, but full of flavor. We SHOULD have stopped, but we couldn't resist the chicken and biscuits. We ended up taking them to go!!"

I love the details taken into consideration while designing this restaurant. There were no corners cut or lack of imagination. The food is great and I love the drinks as well."

  • "Searched for a great restaurant in the Miami area for my birthday dinner. Read their menu and knew it was the right choice. BlackBerry lemonade was the best drink ever. First time I had shrimp n grits; flavorful, creamy,simply delicious. I also enjoyed the fried green tomatoes w/pork belly. Service was excellent. We were able to store our luggage while dining. This is one spot I will definitely return to Miami."

  • "We visited Yardbird for brunch as part of a bachelorette trip to Miami. Food was delicious, service was friendly- overall, great experience! Would recommend this place to others."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I really enjoyed the food but did not enjoy the experience. The busboys walked around our table at least once a minute, picking up whatever they could and wiping the table. While, the intentions may have been good, the effect was it made us feel rushed to leave. There was no wait at the time, so I can't think of any justifiable reason for the continual hovering."

  • "LOVED our meal at Yardbird last week - wish I lived in Miami to visit often! The Fried Green Tomato BLT and Deviled Eggs were awesome appetizers, and the ribs and chicken were delicious. I'm still dreaming of my cheddar waffle and the green tomato chutney and the biscuits, with accompanying jam, were not to be forgotten. We had A LOT of food, more than three hungry adults could reasonably finish. Will definitely return the next time I'm in South Beach!"

  • "This was my first time dining here and I was happy with our choice. We ordered the fried green tomatoes blt, fried chicken, macaroni & cheese, and the mama's chicken. The chicken was moist and succulent, not greasy. The flavors were awesome. I was pleasantly surprised about the fried green tomatoes done I'm not a big fan of pork belly. The food was really good. Our waiter was helpful, attentive, but not overly attentive. He served us in a timely manner. I would definitely return."

  • "The only bad thing I can say about my dining experience at Yard Bird: I wasn't able to try the Bone Marrow, because they don't serve them at lunch. Aside from that, the food and cocktails were outstanding! The fried chicken was as good as my granny's and the small plates were out of this world. Don't miss out on the toasted chicken liver and deviled eggs with trout roe! Even though Yard Bird is considered "hip" and "trendy" the ambiance didn't feel pretentious. Our server was knowledgeable and made really fantastic suggestions and the manager stopped by and was really warm and suggested we try a restaurant from a former chef, who now has a restaurant in our hometown, NYC. Keep up the great work!"

  • "Our third visit to Yardbird, our third great meal. The portions are large enough to share. I highly recommend the Sunday chicken, it is fabulous!!! The fried green tomato appetizer is also one of a kind! The salads are delicious as well. This is a high energy place, if you like it really quiet this might not be the place for you. The wine is moderately priced. I recommend reservations as the bar area is small if you have to wait. A South Beach must!"

  • "All was amazing, server had recommendations which I love especially since it was our first time. Read great reviews on the restaurant and decided it was a must. In fact many people we met in Miami spoke quite highly of Yardbird. Be prepared as portions are huge so make sure you have room for the star: Llewlyn's Fried Chicken. The only real let down was the $7 espresso? A bit shocking to be honest. Not quite sure why, I own many restaurants (Toronto & LA) and a bakery in Toronto....espresso should not cost more than $3.5 even if you're roasting your own beans. Come on, Really? Hotels are not even charging this much! Other than that it is a must try!"

  • "This was a fun night out with friends for casual dining. Great southern cuisine. Excellent and unusual cocktail menu. Great helpful staff! The fried chicken is outstanding as is the Mac & Cheese! Do not pass on the lime donut balls for dessert - yum!"

  • "Great food and service in an uber touristy area. Book ahead as hard to find tables for the busiest times."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "Overall a decent spot to eat. The biscuits where a little harder then expected, the Mac N Cheese was a little too imitational and the seating for two where to close to others seating for two. When one person who sits on the long couch like benches, if they need to get up they have to walk in between their table and the group next to them which was literally inches apart. So my date had to get up and use the bathroom and her butt was pretty much in the next couple faces and personal space. Not really lived up to the hype over this spot."

It was by far the best service experience that our small group of three had on our 3-day trip to Miami Beach."

Everything came out promptly and was cooked to perfection. I would highly recommend for brunch and don't forget to make a reservation as the place fills up quickly."

  • "Typical only in the array of ingredients featured, Yardbird promises a truly memorable experience on multiple levels. The restaurant occupies a prominent corner location close to bustling South Beach, Lincoln Road and other attractions. The interior can be described as Southern rustic chic, with high ceilings, intimate lighting, a bustling bar scene and a semi open kitchen. The servers are friendly and knowledgeable, especially Andrew, who has served us on two occasions, both three star experiences. His cocktail recommendations were spot on based on our stated preferences, as was his advice to order a few items to share because the kitchen gets good and busy so all of the items ordered by your table may not arrive together. Ask for him."
