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
  • "The food is amazing. The price is expensive but the taste is well worth the splurge."

  • "While the decor is nothing fab the food and drinks were amazing! Best frog legs I've ever had."

  • "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."

    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Excellent menu, great bar, our server was very knowledgeable and attentive. He based his suggestions on where we were from and our basic tastes for food. The atmosphere was upbeat and it was a great brunch all around."

  • "Yardbird has the best tasting southern food that i have ever tasted since i been in South Florida! Cant wait to go back!"
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "Miami has "out-south'ed" the South with combined ingredients that bring new life to old Southern recipe's. 50 Eggs has the Midas Touch!"

  • "Best fried chicken ever. The service excellent and the cocktails are amazing"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had a great evening! Thank you to our server, Julian, for his recommendations on menu items, and for guiding us through the evening dining process with his polished and friendly service. It was by far the best service experience that our small group of three had on our 3-day trip to Miami Beach."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Food is excellent and enough to share the charred okra and fried chicken are staples"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "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."

  • "Always cordial service and comfortingly delicious food!"
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "The food/drink and service is amazing! My only complaint is that the tables for 2 were very close together. It was hard to have your own conversation with the other tables so close."
    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We loved this restaurant. The fried chicken is a must have!!! The special hot sauce they bring is incredible. The mac'n cheese is evil and delicious. The bourbon blueberry lemonade was fantastic. Our server was adorable. Can't wait to go back."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "This place is very unique for a typical South Beach restaurant. The service is absolutely outstanding! The hostess was very warm and welcoming and our waiter was very attentive. He came by our table many times just to refill our sweet tea and water. The atmosphere is very unique, too. Very clean and nice decor. Our table was a one of the center booths. It was very nice and intimate, despite having the feel of a very full and packed restaurant. The food is great. Must try their fried green tomatoes and fried chicken. Their waffles were okay, nothing very special. This place is not very kid-friendly, but they did call us (prior to our arrival) to tell us about not having a high chair for our baby."
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "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 is one of my favorite South Beach restaurants. The food is always amazing as well as the service. I have dined here many times and have never had a bad meal. The specialty drinks are amazing."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 7/4/2014
  • "Always great. However, the desserts are too "cheffy." I couldn't find one I really had to have, and I tried! Sometimes, tradition is a good thing......"

  • "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."
    Dined on 6/28/2014
