About

This restaurant is permanently closed. 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.

The food was overpriced for simple southern food. The service was great, though, and because we made reservations, we were seated as soon as we arrived. The flavors were okay...could have been better. Presentation was nice but the menu was hard to read due to small text. Our server was very nice and helped with descriptions of entrees.

Food was an 7/10. Our server was awesome! The hosting staff was smug and not very welcoming.

Horrible! Sadly surprised by this restaurant. Noise level was at the max. Menu was so limited that we settled on a hamburger. We decided that this was the safest to order. It is difficult to ruin a hamburger. We don't know what the meat was comprised of, but it was hard, tasteless and small. The bun stuck to the plate and the french fries were soggy. This was a Sunday brunch menu and it was pathetic. We will not be eating there again nor will we be referring it to anyone. We will stick to our O.C. restaurants. Stay away.

Gluten Frree Chicken was fabulous. The cost
Is pretty high $26 when everything is a la Carte. The kitchen sent us an order of Hush Puppies and apologized that the kitchen was taking so long to get our entree out. Our waitress Jessica was incredibly attentive! Great service, good food, music was just a bit too loud. Hard to have a conversation! Manager was accommodating and said she would lower the volume. Overall good food, and great service!

Our visit was absolutely amazing. Great ambiance, service, food and experience. Jordan was extremely helpful in describing the menu for us and had excellent service for us. We had Mama's biscuits to start. Then the Llewellyn Fried Chicken and the Chicken, Waffle, n Spiced Watermelon. BOMB! Like, they should've sent a poet to truly describe these. Watermelon Slang and an Upshot for wine. Loved it all. Will definitely be returning.

It was what one should expect from Yardbird: family atmosphere, phenomenal meal, attentive but not hovering service, and reasonable prices. I can’t wait to come back!

We had a reservation for a table of 5. Less than 10 minutes after we paid for our lunch, a “manager” asked us to clear the table because other guests had been waiting to be seated. I have NEVER been asked to leave a table for someone else in my life. Will not return.

I located this place online while surfing for birthday celebration venues. Everything was wonderful...from the time we stepped in and stepped out! Service was exceptional. The food was artistic and delicious. Great date and hang-out place. The noise level was a little high, otherwise all had a great time. Definitely looking forward to my next visit.

We ordered the lobster Mac and Cheese - it was mac and cheese with a lobster in it's shell on top of it. So the mac and cheese had no seafood hint whatsoever...the lobster was small and chewy. Also, it was $48. The kale salad was drenched in dressing even though I asked for light dressing. I had requested my steak done medium plus and the waitress had no idea what I was talking about. The Brussels sprouts it was over were only sauteed...and had very little flavor. Our waitress was quite unpleasant. She didn't tell us about the specials and when we paid she said she couldn't process my credit card unless it had a chip.
Our entire dinner was $175 and we left hungry and unsatisfied. Such a bummer.
