Contemporary Southern
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.

So happy that we have a location in Dallas! I can now enjoy gluten free fried chicken.

VERY lackluster. Not comparable to its Miami location. Save your money.

I had several problems here. First, this place was empty but it took several minutes to seat us at a table. Then, they didn't bring all of us a menu, which our waiter commented on, but he still didn't bring us all a menu. Most of our group said the food was good, but my chicken sandwich had a hard rubbery thing in the middle of the chicken (gross). And we had to wait forever to get ketchup for our fries. So overall, I was disappointed.

We love the Yardbird in Miami and we were so excited about the new Dallas location. But the food was not the same and that was so disappointing and the music selection didn't fit the scene at all...

I've been a Yardbird fan for years (Miami & Vegas) and am thrilled to have one down the street now! Food is outstanding, atmosphere and service is awesome and a killer location with a great patio overlooking the park. This is a must try for any foodie or chicken lover.

Yardbird recently opened with a soft opening! I’ve been stalking their website to see when the Dallas location would open and we got a chance to try it. We had the fried chicken w/ maple syrup and the honey hot sauce, collard greens + cornbread and mashed potatoes. We will definitely dine there again when we’re back in town.

All in all the food is exceptionally good. Definitely the fried chicken was as billed. The fried green tomatoes had an explosion of flavor. The tomahawk was cooked perfectly. The bone marrow was good, but definitely was hard to eat with forks. The drinks, were a bit forced. The old fashioneds were too syrupy, and I wouldn’t recommend.

Upon entering we were greeted by a friendly smiling hostess. The ambiance with several seating options including a beautiful bar displaying a curated collection of liquors is a comfortable, modern take on a Southern country home. Server, Conor was on top of things at our table making sure we had beverages and any side items we needed. He made great suggestions too. Thank you Conor. We also appreciated Jaye, the bar manager, stopping by our table too. He is very knowledgeable on bourbon and we enjoyed his sharing with us. We look forward to fantastic bourbon and cocktail experiences in the near future. Samantha and Sarah (in Dallas from the Las Vegas Yardbird location) made sure our cocktails were exactly what we wanted. Upon entering I asked the hostess for a cocktail suggestion. She (didn’t get her name) suggested the Southern Revival. I chose another cocktail after reviewing the options. The first one we ordered was not as expected and they were happy to make that right. I ordered the Southern Revival and was delighted! Cocktail options are well thought out, fresh, crafted experiences perfectly garnished. From the excellent cocktail suggestion made by the hostess (who seated us in a comfortable booth/table combo with views of downtown Dallas) to the delicious fried chicken served in a gold wire chicken-shaped basket, our first experience at Yardbird was fantastic. Pricing is definitely on the high end and while the food is delicious, the value is in the service and ambiance. We live in an Uptown Dallas high rise a couple blocks from this location. We look forward to working our way through the tasty menu, experiencing the ambiance of the upstairs bourbon room table with friends and generally enjoying the addition of Yardbird Dallas to our neighborhood. Thank you for an outstanding first experience.

Amazing food and even better service. Beware the lobster Mac and cheese is just shy of $60! Still can’t wait to go back!

I went for an early birthday dinner and it was the best culinary experience I’ve had in years. I tried a couple of appetizers which had amazing flavor profiles and my entree was perfectly cooked and came to the table hot like I prefer. The dessert was decadent as well. Lastly, the customer service was impeccable. All of the staff were so nice and accommodating. There was not a single moment that I needed to ask for the ETA on our food. I have already made another reservation for brunch. I am so glad I chose to have my dinner at Yardbird.

Great atmosphere, fantastic service (everyone was so friendly), and amazing food. I don't typically like deviled eggs, but after recommendations from the waiter, we decided to try it. It was easily the best deviled eggs I've ever had.

The chicken and waffles were amazing and had great flavor. My girlfriend had the salmon and we both agreed while it was good, it didn't compare to the chicken and waffles.

We'll be sure to come back sometime in the future!
