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.

Brandi our server was great. We were seated promptly by our hostess at our given reservation time.
The food was spectacular, however my wife and I agreed that the rotisserie chicken was not worth the value. Everything else from the collard greens, mashed potatoes and drinks were very good.

This was a really nice experience. It was my first time there so it helped that the waiter knew the menu as well as he did. The chicken was fried to perfection and they had really good mixed drinks!!!

We were excited to try Yardbird after a great experience several years ago in Miami. However it was a great disappointment! The fried chicken was over-done and extremely dry. The rotisserie chicken was blah. The lobster Mac n cheese was served in an small bowl with a lobster plopped on top. The lobster itself was tough making the dish very difficult to eat. The stats were the biscuits, the fried green tomatoes and the amazing deviled eggs. Prices were unbelievably high for mostly mediocre food. Finally the service was completely indifferent. We waited forever for each step and our entrees were not served together. We will Not be going back.

We visited to start my husband birthday off for lunch. We were shocked that brunch was until 4pm Sunday. I ordered the fine fried chicken and him the chicken n watermelon n waffles. The food was tremendously over prices especially the fact you do not get sides. I mean $26 for four pieces of chicken WHATT? My husband meal was $36. We ordered sides and drinks were $16 our tab was $120+ for BRUNCH. Outlandish. Food was good but not prices fairly at all. I also tipped $18 I add.

The food is too expensive for the taste of it. The chicken was good however the macaroni was not that cheesy and very tangy. The mashed potatoes were Ok. The cornbread was good but falling apart. Our server was missing in action. He only came to our table twice the whole time we were there. The manager came to our table to help us more than our server. Our server would walk right past our table and not say anything to us. The food is not that good for the price the restaurant is charging. I would not be going back to Yardbird Southern Table & Bar.

This Vegas based restaurant is a poor excuse for southern cuisine. My experience was terrible and the only reason why I’m giving a star at all is because I received great service from my server Dylan. While the portions are huge, the food had very little flavor and is completely overpriced. I’m writing this review because I sat on the patio tonight and was literally attacked by gnats the entire time. Not flys or mosquitos or any other bug you would normally find swarming over your food outside, but gnats. The gnats that feast on the old fruit in your kitchen. These gnats landed in my water that I couldn’t drink the whole time I was there. They landed in my $24 pretty penny that went to waste, and they attempted to land in all the food myself and my guests ordered. We spent the majority of the night waving the gnats away. As soon as we received our order and realized we couldn’t eat without being attacked, we asked for to go boxes and left. After going through all of that, we still never complained but the worst part of it all was getting home to finally eat our $160 meal and seeing 2 gnats flying out of the box once we opened it. I was completely disgusted and called the restaurant to seek some assistance. I spoke with the manager Christy who advised me, “It is the middle of June and 85 degrees outside in Dallas. There is nothing I can do to assist you with the gnats that flew out of your to go box once you arrived at home. You asked to sit outside and although we know we have a problem with gnats, if you want to sit out there, we can’t stop you. We’ve tried to spray pesticides and that’s the best we can do.” She didn’t apologize, she didn’t show empathy and she didn’t offer to fix the issue by comping our meal or offering a gift certificate. I will NEVER dine here again and I suggest if you decide to still eat there after this post, do yourself a favor and sit inside. The food will still lack flavor but at least you won’t have gnats in it.

Yardbird is a very solid place, with food, service and ambience all on the mark.

Biscuits, deviled eggs and spare rubs are amazing, chicken was juicy, tender and perfectly cooked.

Pricing was very reasonable for the location. Yardbird is going into the rotation!

I never expect fried chicken to be good at a restaurant, but the fried chicken here was the absolute best I've ever had at a restaurant. The service was top-notch and the vibe of the place was even better. I would absolutely go back over and over.

Best fried chicken anywhere hands down. The decor is extremely charming and service terrific. There will be more of these restaurants popping up as they really do it right and deserve their success.

Our reservation was for 745p, by 845p we were still waiting on our food and over 30min for 1/4 drinks. Come to find out our waitress HELD our food order. We waited an hour for food that would’ve never came. The manager apologized saying she was new, but that’s beyond ‘new’ - that is completely not paying attention. We left and went to the Yard House. We won’t be back although the manager Ashley said she would take care of our next meal. I don’t know what would have to happen for us to return.

Also, they barely wiped down the table next to us - and then just placed silverware right on top of the table. No sanitation what so ever.

I went for lunch and I have to say that I did not find the food to be at all on par with the price. The mac n cheese tasted like they put onions in it, and the chicken was just okay. The ambiance was great and would be a reason to go again for a happy hour, but I think you can get a much better meal, at a much better price, at Streets on Cedar Springs.

I didn’t enjoy the shrimp and grits and had to send it back but i did enjoy the fried chicken and the mac and cheese. There was also a weird smell in the restaurant that made me lose my appetite a bit. The drinks were great as well.

My boyfriend and I went in for Sunday brunch and had the best time. Our waiter, Austin, was very sweet and attentive. I had the chicken and waffles and watermelon which was so good. My boyfriend had the make your own omelette, and he loved it. I’ll most definitely be back to try the lobster Mac and cheese.

It was my first time at Yard bird and I was pleasantly surprised. The waiter was very attentive to our party of 4 and gave great drink recommendations. I had the crab cake benedict, my husband had the chicken sandwich, and my two friends had the chicken and waffles. Everyone was pleased with their selections so we will definitely be back.

So many great choices for brunch! I had the lobster benedict & my husband had the chicken & waffles. The portions were large enough that neither of us finished ours. But they were DELICIOUS! Add a blackberry mimosa & my meal was complete. We plan to go back for the cinnamon roll (which comes in its own iron skillet & is huge) & min beignets. Also hope to sample the dinner selections soon.

The food as always was great the cocktails are made to perfection.. had the blackberry bourbon lemonade which was very refreshing. The best cornbread and absolutely fantastic crispy Brussels that we always order when at yardbird.

The one feedback would be about the gift card.. had purchased a $250 gift card .. and unless I missed I don’t believe the instructions of how to use was made available at time of purchase. It’s good the way it works.. just did not know that I could complete the entire transaction without getting back to the server.

Waited an hour for our food and it was cold and missing essential items. $18 dollars for pancakes with no syrup brought out for another 10 mins?! Ordered a side of fries that were drenched in salt and I could not eat. My crab cakes were over cooked and bland
