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

Diner Reviews
  • "I had been very excited about going to Yardbird, and we went for my birthday. I found the food to be mediocre at best. The fried chicken was overcooked, and the ribs were very tough. The biscuits and the mac n cheese were phenomenal, but everything was very expensive and a la carte. So you pay $40 for a dish, and then you pay $10 for each side. I can't see myself coming back here anytime soon. And the service seemed to want us out of there as quick as possible. I've never seen anything like it. The dude was all over us. And we received our food literally 5 minutes after ordering, which makes me wonder how fresh the food was."

  • "We only could get a 6:15 reservation which was OK but we were rushed to the point of amazement , ordered couple of courses within minutes entire order came out, tables on both sides of us had same rushed experience and we're not pleased."

  • "The food lives up to the reputation here!! Chicken & waffles, fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese & pork belly. Awesome... Setting is eclectic & fun, if a bit noisy. The service was a little erratic though. We were greeted & seated promptly, got our menus.. Then our waiter disappeared for quite a while before we were able to order drinks. We had to wave down a server finally to fin our waiter. That said, this was the only low point in an otherwise great dining experience!"

  • "The food is exceptional. Very southern with a Miami twist. We have been there several times and have enjoyed it every time. Warning though, portions are huge, definitely a place to be able to share"

  • "This restaurant never disappoints! I also love that in the 2 years I have been going there, much of the staff is the same. This says a lot about the management and why the experience is consistent."

  • "My husband and I ate here while on vacation. Our waiter was fantastic and gave us some excellent menu recommendations. (Portions are large and food is meant to be shared. It would be easy to order too much.) The food was amazing and service was the best we had in south Florida. It was reasonably priced as well. My husband commented that it was the best meal he could remember in a restaurant in quite a while."

  • "If you are looking for unbelievable fried chicken, light and fluffy biscuits and incredible Mac n' cheese, this is the place to come. Portions are huge and should be shared. Come hungry and enjoy! The only issue is that honey have a small kitchen and the food comes out all at once. Service is accomodating and even though I was just a party of one, they were just as gracious and attentive. Will definitely go back when I am in Miami."

  • "Took my friend there for brunch. It gets really busy for Sunday brunch but by the time I was to be seated ( 2 pm) the crowd was just starting to let out. Despite this, the place maintained lots of energy ( music was a bit loud but I loved that New Orleans style music), our server was excellent and we never felt neglected. Food selection is incredible and goes beyond the usual eggs, ham and pancakes although present in abundance. I highly recommend this for a fun after Sunday brunch in an elegant setting with great atmosphere."

  • "Every time I come here the place gets better. In addition to fried chicken to drool over, they have the best mac & cheese and you have to try the maple-glazed bacon donuts....I want to go get another just typing about them!!!!"

  • "This is by far one of the best resturants I have ever been to. Every dish that we ordered was fantastic! Service was great. Drinks were even better. I would recommend this place to anybody and hope they open one in NYC soon as I would be a frequent diner."

  • "although our lunch was tasty, we were expecting a more intimate experience for our anniversary. I t turns out that the restaurant is fairly new and the Yardhouse is nearby so our GPS brought us there. We realized mid-meal that we were not where we wanted to be and located the Yardbird House and had dessert there. It was more upscale and the staff treated us incredibly well."

  • "What's not to like about that? Good fried chicken is always a hit. The only problem is that you end up with too much food!"
    Dined on 6/23/2014
  • "Gotta get the chicken with waffles and watermelon! Great biscuits, Mac and cheese, and fried green tomatoes! Love dessert? Banana cream pie with Rice Krispie crust and key lime jellies with coconut pudding are divine. You can't go wrong here! Get reservations and go hungry!"

  • "The food is great. Noisier than expected. Hard to have a conversation with the level of noise. Definitely a place to go if with group of friends, not for a romantic dinner. Shared appetizer, entree and side dish, 2 desserts = $160. Seemed high for location and experience."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "What a wonderful experience. The food was awesome, the service was great and the prices were good. Parking is valet but in the beach it is hard to find parking. The brunch menu was wonderful, we all tried different things like the shrimp and grits, the quiche and the eggs Benedict. We tried the flavored lemonades and the teas. The desserts were great too especially the apple cinnamon hand pies. The best of all was the mac n cheese. Wow oh wow it was so delicious. Tasted homemade and really creamy, I recommend it to everyone."

  • "I have to say, beyond my expectations. A go-to hot spot in Miami Beach! We arrived earlier and had a drink at the bar. Their cocktails are unique. We had reserved our table in the patio outside but it was too hot and humid, we asked for a window table inside and they made that happen! Huge help along with the great service and food recommendations during dinner. Go for it!"

  • "The food here is incredibly creative and spot-on delicious. The ambiance and service are fantastic, but more importantly, you could serve that chicken liver toast to me on a shred of dirty linoleum off the floor of Churchill's and I'd still go for it. Same for the Bread and Butter Pickle Spears, Watermelon Salad, and the Chicken and Biscuits."

  • "Went to Yardbird for our 25th wedding anniversary. The food was phenomenal. The fried chicken was a perfect blend of crunch and spice on the outside and tender meat on the inside. The bourbon selection was outstanding. Though not on the bar menu, I was able to get a flight of Pappy 15, 20 and 23. Great service. Wonderful evening."

  • "Being my 3rd visit, the food was outstanding as always. Service not so good. very below par server, he was awkward non attentive and certainly not the quality you expect from a great restaurant. overall, I will return but service certainly needs to improve"

  • "Loved Yardbird. Really great bar and cool design inside. We shared the fried green tomatoes as an appetizer, which was delicious. For entrees we had the shrimp & grits and the pan fried carolina trout with shrimp and creamed spinach. I was a bit disappointed in the trout, which although tasted good, wasn't spectacular. The skin wasn't as crisp as I would expect from being pan fried, and the spinach was a bit 'wet' and not very creamy. Will have the chicken next time, from looking at other diners' tables, it looked amazing. Sadly didn't have room for desserts, they sounded amazing on the menu though."
