Yardbird Southern Table & Bar
ExcellentVery good. Creative gourmet approach to Southern food. It is better order dishes to share and taste different flavors. Nice atmosphere5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch, Lunch or DinnerYardbird is consistently delicious and has the best Bloody Mary on the beach. Although, I was disappointed to see that the two strips of bacon in the Bloody have been reduced to one. I hope it was a temporary shortage...5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMNew Favorite on South BeachCould eat here every night. Southern comfort food made with flair and care. Fantastic fried chicken. Great mac and cheese. Fried oysters, shrimp with grits (yes!) and biscuits all delicious. Also great ribs, huge porterhouse, surprising fish, inventive salads (warm brussels sprouts leaves was a favorite). As if Daniel Boulud grew up in Tuscaloosa. Scene inside is energetic and cozy. Outside patio has a quieter vibe, but still vibes. Lots of cool beers on tap. Terrific, relaxed servers who go out of their way to be helpful and try to prevent you from over-ordering/over-eating, but good luck with that. Plan ahead cause tables are hard to come by, especially weekends. Can't wait to go back.5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerWe took a friend to Yardbird for a birthday dinner. It was a first visit for all of us. We loved everything about the restaurant! We argued the next day about what we would eat on our next visit. A winner!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousBest fried chicken I have ever tasted. The fried green tomato BLT was expertly crafted as well. Yum!5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service!I loved yard bird! The service was exceptional ! Not once did I have to wait or try to find my server. They were very attentive ! I would definately recommend this restaurant to my friends!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMToo early!My party and I arrived at the time of opening hours. Some of our food was cold and the chicken didnt taste like the first time I was their. I really love this place and fell in love with it the first time I went. Gonna give it another try and go back. Hopefully it was just that we arrived too early. The food that came out cold was taken back with no problem and they brought out more food that was hot,5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMYummyThe food was excellent, we were seated at a table with no waitress and it took about 15 minutes before we were taken care of but they were apologetic and did give us some biscuits on the house. This probably isnt the best palce for kids- they didn't have high chairs and it was alittle hard for us to find food for our toddler (the buscuits and jelly were a hit- just not very nutritious :)).5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMPretty GoodEnded up eating a bit more than I expected, but that's only bc everything looked good. I really enjoyed it.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely RavishingThe good was great! The drinks were tasty & service perfect.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMFried Chicken for the SoulWe have been wanted to check this restaurant out for months. The staff was incredibly cordial, from the hostess, bartender, server and everyone in between. We loved the food and already made a reservation to return. My husband and I are huge fans now.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were looking for an authenticWe were looking for an authentic American cuisine and that was it! We simply followed excellent recommendations from our waiter and enjoyed it. Pleasant, vibrant atmosphere and great personnel. Highly commended!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing!The best restaurant I've been to in South Beach in a while. amazing service, everyone there was friendly and when my friend dropped her wedding ring on the floor, all the surrounding tables got up to help find it!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesome Awesome AwesomeMy boyfriend and I have been on a very strict diet for a while now so when it comes to our cheat meal we like to find new and exciting places to go. Yardbird was everything I hoped it would be and more! We shared the fried chicken and waffles (which was out of this world), the Mac and cheese (still drooling), and the house fries with bacon salt (my boyfriends favorite). Couldn't be more happy. I still daydream about the food!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMThis place is the best keptThis place is the best kept secret! Was recommended to us by friends and its everything they said. The food is amazing (differant than the usual dining menu which We loved) the service is outstanding (and we eat out A LOT) and the decor is so unigue, warm and litterally soo cool. Only one bad thing...wish it was closer to our home but we will still make the drive from Fort Lauderdale! Going back again on Sunday for brunch for our 25th wedding Anniversay!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were still full 5 hours later!This place was worth the trek from the "strip". My friend and I went for lunch. The food was awesome and we were full for a long time. The water was very helpful when choosing our meals, since the menu is challenging to navigate for "first-timers". Definitely bring your appetite!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was fantastic. Ham andFood was fantastic. Ham and eggs with grits, hangar steak, and watermelon tomato salad were delicious and with just enough something extra to make them special. We will definitely return!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Experience. Thanks Yardbird!I made lunch reservations on administrative assistants day and what a great choice. The menu was a chock full of awesomeness so it was difficult to decide. We shared a wedge salad, then I had the fried chicken and my guest had turkey pastrami sandwich. Then we had carrot cake for dessert. Everything was excellent. I brought my leftovers home and my husband at them. He could not stop raving!All in all Yardbird made our special day even more special. I am not sure I would go there to propose, but if you are looking for good food and great service, you can count on Yardbird! A+4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMYou better believe that chickenYou better believe that chicken needs to run, otherwise it will end up being one of the most delicious pieces of fried chicken you will eat. Servers were extremely attentive (just on the right side of not being annoying though). The dining room is bright and airy with a little whimsical feel to it. Decent drink menu. Overall, no complaints and I would definitely go back next time I'm in Miami Beach.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMimpressive southernfood. Pleaseimpressive southernfood.

Fried oysters, chicken and biscuits with pepper jelly...delicious!!!! Absolutely one of my best meals ever!!!! Which is hard to do.4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMReal Food in South BeachYou'd never know this gem was in south beach as everyone things of Lincoln Road, Washington Ave or Ocean Drive. Walk/cab a few blocks in to 16/Lenox & get some real food, Southern style but upscale classy! The chicken biscuits were awesome as were the stuffed oysters. Portions are definitely large enough to share. We also had the ribs and took them back to the hotel for lunch the next day. Hubby had to try dessert, a southern take on key lime with home made whipped cream. Missed out on the wonderful bourbons, but the beers were great.
a must visit - make a reservation!4/22/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food great interiorWe had a great birthday lunch! Our waitress explained everything very well and everybody in the staff were friendly.

I can't wait to try more dishes.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food and service wereThe food and service were equal to the hype. A perfect experience was ruined by a pushy group next to us who tried to commandeer our space. The management was apologetic but allowed it to continue after we got up and another group sag diwn4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was good, but priceyFood was good, but pricey for brunch ($100 for 2 people with only one mimosa each). Throw the diet out the window - grits are super cheesy, fried chicken (these are big birds - probably not really free range yard birds) is way too much. The salads, on the other hand, are way too small. I may go back, but it's hard with so many other good and reasonably priced brunch places on South Beach. Also, a major strike for me was that they did not offer decaf coffee - only regular.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is phenomenal. TheirThe food is phenomenal. Their fried chicken is hands down the best I've ever had. The only downside is that the restaurant is ridiculously loud. You do get used to it after awhile, but it's a bit of a shock when you first sit down.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food at Yardbird was excellent!The food at Yardbird was excellent!

The Fried Chicken was the best thing we ate. The portions are large so keep that in mind when ordering. The decoration is nice, but wish the place was on Lincoln or that it had a view. Other than that, no complaints.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMI had the old school chickenI had the old school chicken and waffles and it was great! Never had fried chicken that taste so good!

Excellent food, great atmosphere and the service is always top notch - friendly, attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Fun menu - you are encouraged to share - and they have a nice bar menu with some unique borboun cocktails. We've had brunch and dinner here - a lot of the menu repeats for these meals like delicious chicken and waffles, amazing cheesy grits, to-die-for chicken bisquits. They don't have a ton of egg options for brunch, and the ones they do have aren't anything too exciting. The French toast is out of this world good.3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMLoved the food!!
