Southern
Bringing the best fried chicken and freshest farm ingredients, 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 family experienced this place together for the first time. We kind of knew what to expect via the online menu and reviews, but not completely. We were all extremely pleased and truly did overeat. I'll definitely return!

Great gluten free fried chicken - maybe they best I’ve ever had! Great service from host to waiter. Only thing I would say is it’s pretty expensive and you just might not be expecting that.

Totally not worth it. It's the "Cheesecake Factory" of Southern food. Beware and bring a lot of money.

I have been eyeing this place on yelp for months and never had a chance to come.....until now. From the first bite my taste buds were at a point of no return. The food was flavorful and couldn’t wait to take another bite. Will definitely be back!!

It is a great restaurant. I would live to have
To deviled eggs with sweet pickles but that is the southern in me other than that I enjoyed everything else.

It was our first time and both myself and my friend enjoyed everything. The service was great! I would have liked a table closer to the front of the restaurant, but overall it was GOOD FOOD AND SERVICE! I will go back!

Excellent food. We came for a retirement lunch and everyone at the table enjoyed what they ordered. Everyone felt that the food was well seasoned. The portions were large and we all had some to take home. Our waitress was attentive. Condiments were not offered and when asked they were individual size (i.e. ketchup).

The food was really good. It definitely has a southern rich flavor. A variety of sides full of flavor. The fried chicken with a Memphis rub is Excellent! The drinks were very tasty also! Also be sure to try the lobster Mac n cheese! I’d definitely go back to this restaurant!

Great service! Best fried chicken! It’s tender and flavorful. The sides are exceptional as well...Brussels sprouts and cauliflower are so good. And don’t forget the cobbler dessert!

Fried chicken was flour-y tasting and mediocre. Not nearly as good as Sweet Chick

I only had a problem with the managers. They behaved a little aggressive towards me when I went to the bar to order a drink at happy hour instead of at my table. Other than that, the experience was fine.

So good that I went twice over my weekend trip. The waiter started it off right with a menu rundown that had my mouth watering from the jump. The chicken is cooked expertly, the right amount of crispiness and juicy on the inside. The honey hot sauce is the perfect addition with it being more flavor than heat. Didn't know that watermelon can be spiced, but I do know now that it's delicious. A nice thick waffle paired well with the bourbon maple syrup. A totally worth the price, couldn't finish it in one sitting. The fried Oreo was the perfect finisher. It was unexpectedly soft and cake like with small crumbles on the outside. Coming with a cookies and cream ice cream it was a 10/10

We truly enjoyed the delicious, Southern style food--both the taste and the attractive presentations. The portions were move than generous (a Southern tradition) and the inclusion of specialty menu items exclusive to the southern palate like "pot-likker" were a delight to find. The restaurant is spacious with a modern, edginess--but with walled presentations of bottles of liquor and jars of canned delicacies giving a nod to the traditional. The service was excellent and the many interesting items on the menu may tempt you to over-order. You will pay dearly if you do--with your wallet and your over-filled stomach. We will return. You must go. It's a nice experience.

The general experience was wonderful. I have enjoyed this restaurant twice and both times there was confusion amongst the hostesses as to where to seat guests but once that was done, the experience was great. The Fresno Fizz is the drink of choice - frozen spicy watermelon and cucumber with gin. Highly recommend the shrimp and grits, waffles-fried chicken-watermelon, and kale salad (from previous dining - smoked ribs, mac n cheese). The servers are quite good and make fine cuisine recommendations. I will return to Yardbird.

First time at Yardbird. My son ordered the Breakfast Burrito & I ordered the 1/2 Fried Chicken. Plus we ordered a side of Mama's Biscuits. The fried chicken was well seasoned and definitely worth $24. I highly recommend it. Everything was good! Waitress was not as attentive...she didn't check to refill our beverages... I had flag another person passing by to help us.

Awful. Server was not attentive, and was condescending to my wife. My lobster dish was cold as if it was sitting along time. Deviled eggs tasted old, not fresh.

Fabulous, outstanding shrimp and grits, creative menu. Awesome drinks as well. Be sure not to do self parking as they will not validate. Go up-to 3rd level parking and take your ticket for hostess to stamp.

Had an amazing experience at Yardbird. The food and service was excellent. Our waiter Jordan was outstanding. He knew the menu back to front and gave the best recommendations. Throughout our whole holiday he was the best and most charismatic waiter we had. I couldn’t speak more highly of him and of Yardbird.

Booked reservation for New Years Eve at 8:30pm. The server was very abrupt in pushing for our dinner order. We wanted to enjoy the time and ordered wine and 2 appetizers. He kept asking for our dinner order but we wanted to enjoy our wine and apps first. Finally ordered dinner and it came fairly quick. At 9:30 the server came by again wanting to know if we wanted dessert, while still eating the entrees. We found out at this time that the restaurant was closing in 30 mins and this was the last call for food and drinks. They shut off all services at 10pm, TVs off and house lights turned up... so much for a nice New Years Eve dinner!! This early closing should have been notified in the booking time. This is the last time we will be at this restaurant.
