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.

    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!

    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.

    I heard great things about this place, and it is ALWAYS crowded. I loved the restaurant and where they sat us. I had a couple come in from out of town and we went for brunch...although their Bloody Mary's looked fabulous with the garnish, they were pretty bland and didn't think too much of the food except for the fantastic MAPLE/BACON glazed doughnut! AMAZING!!!! Husband had the chicken / waffles...pretty good. I guess I was so excited about going, sometimes that leaves you unsatisfied.

    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.

    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.
