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.

Our Server, Andre made the evening very special. My parent in-laws were visiting from out of town and this was their first time dining at Yardbird. Andre shared details about the menu, ensured we had ample time to review the menu and delivered everything as ordered.

We enjoyed the Chicken+Waffles+Watermelon, Pork Ribs, Backyard BBQ for 2, sides for all included Mac & Cheese, Collard Greens and Cornbread. And the Chocolate cake is delicious!!!


Andre is especially kind and professional which made all of us feel welcomed and valued as guests.

We will return to try other menu items and hope Andre will be available to serve us again.

The food was delicious. Our trio ordered different items to share. First the chicken biscuit. A soft perfectly baked biscuit stacked high with chicken, bacon, a sunny side up egg, topped with gravy, wow! Next the chicken waffles and watermelon, yum. Perfectly cooked chicken and a cheese waffle were delicious. The spicy watermelon wasn't my favorite, but that is just my taste, others may love it. The star of the table was the lobster mac & cheese. Good Lord, it was good.
I mean it's lobster, perched on top of spirals loaded with 5 kinds of cheese!
Don't forget to try one of the brunch cocktails. I had the strawberry mimosa and the Southern peach. If you like burbon, you'll love it.
The server was so nice, attentive and helpful. Couldn't have asked for a better experience. We can't wait to go back.

My wife and I took my mom here for Mother's Day. We LOVED it! The food was fantastic, service was attentive and knowledgeable, but in no way overbearing. The dining room is very energetic, slightly load, but beautifully decorated with a great bar area. We sat outside, which was perfect on a mild late-Spring night. The outside dining area overlooks Klyde Warren Park.

I’ve ate here before & had a great experience however I brought my Mother & Children on Mother’s Day & the experience wasnt the same...
The biscuits were stiff & not warm & the waiters seemed tired..
Also Valet told us it would be a while till we got our cars.
I wouldn’t bother to come back @all.

The food was great however our service was terrible. I am usually one to put up with subpar service however there was no excuse for how bad our service was and it was on Mother’s Day. After watching our waiter walk past our table for approximately 15-20 minutes multiple times, we asked him if he could get our drinks. He acted like he wasn’t our waiter but he was. We ordered an appetizer (biscuits) that didn’t come until the end of the meal while we watched the tables around us who were sat after us get their biscuits. We then asked for condiments that we ended up having to get from the manager or another waiter. By the time we received them the food was cold. I asked for to go boxes that I ended having to get from a different waiter. The manager did discount our meal because of the service and offered to change our waiter but we were already halfway through eating at that point. Again great food, a fun ambiance, hopefully you get better service.

The bar staff was amazing Shout out to Nick for introducing me to a savory tequila drink. The entire staff from the door to the bar were impressive kind attentive and courteous. The fried green tomatoes are a meal alone and the hot sauce was delicious. I ended up getting the chicken and waffles and it was outstanding! Will be going back as my kids went through my leftovers like locusts and were upset they didn't get there own plates. See you soon!

Overall great night dining here. Took my partner for the first time and we both really enjoyed everything! Went on a Monday, during a possible storm, so the restaurant was fairly vacant-perfect for me, lol. The staff was friendly and attentive and the food was amazing!!
