Bringing the best fried chicken and freshest farm ingredients from Florida and Georgia to the table since 2011, 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.

My husband and I shared a bunch of small plates and it was all amazing! We got the mac and cheese, fried green tomatoes, deviled eggs, chicken biscuits, and burnt ends. No regrets with anything! We will be back for sure. Our favorite was the chicken biscuits!! Valet was quick and cost $15 on Saturday afternoon.

We go to Miami from Tampa ONLY to eat at Yardbird. The food is so delicious and memorable. The deviled eggs are comforting but fancy. The chicken and waffles with watermelon and bourbon maple syrup is to die for.

Food and service were AHH-MAY-ZING!! First time indulging in chicken and waffles and it was incredible. Deviled eggs, Brussels sprouts, blackberry bourbon lemonade were also delicious. But, what made our experience over the top was our server who was genuinely personable, friendly, accommodating, patient and clearly is great at all she does. Wouldn't hesitate to ask for her service again if I could remember her name, lol. So good, so good, so good!

Air conditioner and hood vents were both broken. The place was at least 95-100F. The managers never came over to apologize, anything. Also, when I emailed the restaurant they just apologize and said hope to see you again. TERRIBLE!!

The food was delicious. The waiter should be more genuine/friendly. The manager should consider purchasing booster seats for children and also, the restaurant should do something nice for those celebrating a special occasion.

Perhaps the worst experience I have ever had at a restaurant. We came for an anniversary dinner with our 2-year-old daughter. Not only did the restaurant make no recognition of our special occasion; the hostess told us as soon as we entered that they would not be able to accommodate our daughter with a high-chair. We proceeded to order food, but we had to take turns walking around the block with our daughter since there was no way for her to sit in the restaurant. The icing on the cake came when we spoke with the manager Jason about the situation, and he said it was “decidedly so” that they did not provide a high-chair, since the restaurant is a “new bar concept.” I have never been so offended by management in my life. The restaurant turned our special occasion into a nightmare. I will encourage everyone I know to avoid the restaurant and their so-called “family values” that actually discourage families from dining together.

The service was friendly and expedient.

However, the food tasted alright and then gave both of us stomach aches throughout the night. Not ideal for a date night. The way I truly feel about this restaurant is that I spent $110 on a stomach ache.

I went there to celebrate my birthday. The prices were reasonable. The fried chicken was very good. I actually ordered the lobster mac n cheese. It was good but not very flavorful. The lobster was a little tough and did not have much flavor. The mac and cheese was very good. I, also, had a the Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade (Very delicious!) and the fabulous Peach Cobbler. My only suggestion is that if they have a special of the day menu, it should be printed up and handed to the customer instead of just telling the customer and not making them aware of the prices.

The food was incredible. I ordered the chicken and waffles with watermelon. The portion was huge; you could definitely split it. The flavors all worked well together. My husband ordered biscuits and gravy, and it was wonderful also. The atmosphere was cute, and the service was on point!

Excellent restaurant, my friend more than enjoyed herself for her Bachelorette Party celebration. I also had forgotten someone very special to me at the restaurant and while most may of thought it was not worth keeping the restaurant and waiter kept it at the front desk and I was able to get it back the next day!!!!

I’ve been to this location before however I was underwhelmed this visit. The service was great but it seems the owners have become “comfortable” with the food. The Mac and Cheese and fried chicken were mediocre and lack flavor that I have experienced before.

Went for lunch on a Tuesday for the Miami Spice promotion. Had the blue plate special. The fried chicken was excellent. Also had the fried green tomatoe blt as an appetizer. Overall the good and service were great. The prices are a little on the high side but for Miami Beach it is right in line. Would recommend and will definitely go back.
