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.

    Frequent NYC brunch-ers visiting Miami for Labor Day weekend. Everything was perfect. Our table was ready when we arrived. Our server, Francisco was energetic & knowledgeable. It was very busy but we didn't feel rushed to leave for one second. The drinks were strong and delicious. The food was melt-in-your-mouth good. Special shout out to that amazing bacon hashbrown potato pancake that came with the hanger steak & eggs. Best brunch of my life & my girlfriend says it was the best meal of hers. No exaggeration. If you're visiting Miami, you would be doing yourself a serious injustice by not having brunch here.

    I had been wanting to try Yardbird for a long time. It lived up to the hype and was fun, but very noisy. The prices on the menu for Southern fried chicken were shocking, but it's South Beach after all (plus $15 valet parking). Actually, since they serve family style, 3 of us shared 2 small appetizers and 2 fried chicken entrees (one with waffle and spiced watermelon) and the overall price turned out to be reasonable (about $30pp). That was without drinks, coffee or dessert. The chicken was absolutely delicious and very different than KFC! So long as you are prepared for the sticker shock, it's a beautiful restaurant and a fun experience.

    Went for brunch and had the chicken biscuits to start (best I've ever had), BLT eggs benedict, and waffle. All of them were incredible, and to add to the great food, they were playing awesome music the whole time. Really lively crowd and cool decorations. I've heard dinner is great there too, but the brunch was awesome. Highly recommend.

    By far the best culinary experience I've had on south beach. But the good experienced it only enhanced by the superior customer service. I have never been escorted to the door and given salutations as I've left a restaurant, not until I went to Yardbird. They have top notch service an great food. What a great way to enjoy my birthday. I'll definitely be back whenever I'm in that part of town.

    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.

    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!!

    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.

    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!
