James Beard-nominated and award-winning Yardbird Southern Table & Bar is a house of worship to farm-fresh ingredients, classic Southern cooking, hailed bourbon selection, and top-notch hospitality. We’re serving up a fresh, inventive take on regional Southern fare seven days a week with a foot-stompin’, soul-healin’ brunch on the weekends. Whether you are celebrating a special life moment, planning an event, or looking for your newest neighborhood spot, we’ll keep a place set for you.
We believe that the best tastes in life come from an authentic, unhurried process — steps and components like hand-rolled dough, daylong brines, and house pickling spices. Yardbird takes pride in our scratch kitchen. We’re honored to start with local ingredients, quality meats, and premium produce from specialty farms in their purest forms. Local berries macerate for eight hours to become the tiny jar of strawberry goodness that makes our freshly baked biscuits that much sweeter.

We came for Thanksgiving dinner. The menu was limited but that wasn’t a problem. We ordered the Turkey Dinner and it was delicious. We also had a side of Brussel sprouts and biscuit stuffing which both were amazing. Excellent service as always.

Thanksgiving lunch. Excellent service by Abraham. The turkey was one of the most delicious turkey so we have ever had and it was very moist. All the sides were fantastic and the wine was great and there was even a sommelier who made a recommendation. This was our first time and we will certainly be back. Bravo to all the front of the house staff as well as the kitchen.

Really felt it was overpriced for what it was. Food was good no doubt and the service was wonderful. Just didn’t think it’s was priced accordingly to fried chicken

Abraham waited on me and my friends yesterday, and he is just the cutest, most knowledgeable and patient waiter ever!!! The food was sooo good!! We tried chicken and brisket biscuits for appetizers.. The highlight of our shared meal was the juicy chicken and the buttery, bacon-filled cornbread!! I can't wait to go back! Yardbird is definitely top tier for food, service, cleanliness and ambience!!

First visit. Building is beautiful. Food was divine, Lobster Mac, Brisket Huevos Ranchero, Deviled Eggs with the smoked Trout eggs were a delightful surprise. Service was right on, took great care of the table without being intrusive. Will definitely be back.

The restaurant is incredibly beautiful. Very nice host staff. Service was mostly good.

The chicken was great, as were the biscuits and street corn. $36 for fried chicken and waffles is steep, but its a big portion, so might recommend splitting with someone. Steak and fries were both very under seasoned, very bland. Lobster mac and cheese ($56) came out in a tiny skillet with a whole lobster on top of it and you then have to get the meat out of it yourself. Very strange set up. Where was the lobster shell supposed to go? They should have brought a side plate or bowl for the lobster like you would do with empty mussel shells. Interesting presentation but not practical. You’d expect the steps of service to be much better for this restaurant to charge as much as they do.

For the chicken and waffles dish, an all white meat option would be great. Or choose what part of the bird you want.

Came here with some friends because this place was highly recommended. The ambiance was nice, the decor was lovely but the food and the service was not exceptional. We waited forever for our server to take our order and bring drinks. It was a light night by the way not many people there. When the waitress finally came it was 15 minutes after we sat and our main entree didn’t arrive until 45 min later. My drink was best part of dinner it was a Champagne cocktail. For dinner we ordered the deviled eggs which were good, lobster mac was mediocre and the chicken and waffles. The chicken came out before the waffles so we didn’t get to enjoy them together because we were so hungry. Very unusual for chicken to be finished before a waffle. I expected a lot more from this place. I give it 3 stars for the ambiance and drinks.

Very good overall and some creative Southern entries but very fully priced for the ingredients, particularly in Southern form (read fried chicken and not exotic fish or meat). Deviled eggs and cornbread starters were excellent. Yardbird old fashion was tasty but without any real special bacon infusion as advertised. Chicken and waffles were great as was the pesto rigatoni dish. Nice touch on the chicken and waffles by adding watermelon as a side. Brussel sprouts were very good as well, but not a unique Southern form. Service was very attentive and while the outdoor ambience was interesting with Klyde Warren park across the street, together with rush hour energy, the seating was not comfortable and the patio setup was spartan. Parking was validated and we left very full and satisfied but maybe smarting a bit with the final tab.

According to the server, they did not plan ahead and couldn’t handle the private event and regular customers. It showed.
They tried to seat us in the bar area which was full of guests.

Yardbird was AMAZING! Everything was beyond delicious! We had St. Louis Ribs (make sure you have your camera ready for this because it comes out in a wonderful presentation), Chicken (So good and the Honey Hot Sauce Even Better), Mac & Cheese (Perfect), Biscuits (The best I’ve ever had), and the burger (seasoned to perfection). Stop reading this review and get to Yardbird!

The Sunday brunch is absolutely amazing and outstanding! They have the best chicken I’ve ever tasted! And the True American Burger (I think that’s the name) is above and beyond! I also enjoyed the Cinnamon Roll as well as the deviled egg. This will be a part of my brunch rotation.
