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.

    My friend and I shared the watermelon, chicken and waffles dish and thought it was very good. Seasoning on the watermelon was delicious, chicken was perfectly prepared and the sauces were great. I also loved my bourbon lemonade! I would definitely suggest this place, particularly if you are a bourbon fan.

    Great service, definitely order the fried green tomatoes, and make a reservation. My boyfriend ordered a drink -- it was good but a little sweet for his taste. He liked it enough to not send it back but didn't drink very much of it. When the bill came, our wonderful waiter took the drink off our bill since he noticed this. Great ambiance with a lot of character and really great food.

    At $28 at Yardbird vs. $8 at KFC, the fried chicken is better at KFC. Located at an obscure corner, away from Lincoln RD. I wonder why the high prices of a high rent district eaterie ? Drink menu is extensive, food highly spiced, not for my taste.

    The food was absolutely delicious. This place was an unexpected find as it not on the South Beach strip but so glad we saw as we were driving by. The fried chicken, biscuits, grits and green tomatoes are a must order!! The drinks were also unique and well made. Yum. Can't wait to come here again when I'm in Miami.

    The reservation process worked flawlessly. The service was prompt and knowledgeable, and the food was excellent. One thing to keep in mind is that the entrees for chicken are VERY large. Could be shared unless you are very hungry. The BLT appetizer was off the charts and unique. Did not try the sundae dessert, but it looked good 0 no room left after the chicken. Concept is creative and works.

    The Yardbird is not your typical South Beach restaurant. This is a place you come expecting to indulge in caloric southern food. Fabulous food. Their dishes are made to share and their prices are about half of what we've experienced in Miami Beach. Everything was good. The scene is young and vibrant. The wait staff attentive. It seemed like a popular spot for locals. We highly recommend the restaurant. Make sure to make reservations. We had to make ours 3 weeks in advance.

    Since I don't cook fried chicken well at home I was ecstatic when this opened. I love all of the dishes and there baked maccoroni is to die for!! Beware of the chicken though, it's cooked in lard which is from a pig. I was deeply upset to find this out. But from my understanding the boneless chicken is cooked in normal oil I've been told.

    I wanted to do something different with my girlfriend, so instead of planning a dinner around 7 pm, I took her to have brunch at Yardbird. She had never been there, even the southern food was new for her... And well, she loved everything. Great food, very good service, awesome environment and good prices.

    For once, a highly-rated restaurant lives up to the hype! Overall a fantastic dining experience. Usually we just care about the food, but this even had stellar service, casual chic ambience, and only moderate noise level despite it being a completely full house. It's easy to try out different places in the Miami Beach area, but it's the exception to want to repeat. Would definitely return on our next trip back. Our favorite was the fried chicken biscuits (Mama's biscuits I think they're called). Perfection. Look forward to trying out different items next time!

    Lived up to its reviews! Arrived early for our table as we wanted a few cocktails before dinner. Had a few light bites to begin with... The bread and butter pickles were incredible, and the frogs legs were mind blowing! Great recommendations from the bar team,great food knowledge from them all... All chipped in and generally seemed passionate about the menu. The drinks list is solid and has plenty for every taste... The strong as oak and The blackberry bourbon lemonade our favorites! Once we sat down our waiter was amazing(Aaron).We wanted to try everything. And he gave us great recommendations of what we should eat to gain the best experience. We were not disappointe. Professional, relaxed, passionate people, quality product!

    On vacation in Miami Beach we decided on Yardbird. Cool, Southern, Bluesy Vibe to this joint. Fried chicken is what they lay their claim to. Good cocktail list with bourbon as their specialty. Fried green tomato appy with pork belly was outstanding. Salads, biscuits...everthing for that matter was very good. Solid Pastry chef creating some fine desserts. Go hungry...portions are generous. Prices fair...Overall.. a winner!

    My husband and I really enjoyed our first experience at Yard Bird. The service was great from the beginning because we booked a reservation with OpenTable. But, the food is what I should be talking about. We had the chicken and waffles, biscuits and Fried Green Tomato BLT. The best southern in South Florida. Yard Bird has such a unique take on their food and they do everything with excellency. And their speciality cocktails were also amazing! We'll definitely be going back!
