Southern
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.

**Please note that while we do welcome families and children, we do not have high chairs within the restaurant, we appreciate your understanding**

We have been here previously for lunch and had a great meal and experience. Dinner was different. The restaurant was empty. The hostess told us to have a drink at the bar while we waited for our table, even though our reservation was for 8. Twenty minutes later I asked her is it was table and she had forgotten. We then were seated and while she sat us she said, your server is backed up, are you ready to order? I reminded her she just sat us. Also not sure how the server was backed up, the restaurant was empty. Food was average and portly put together and plated. We would not go back. The worst part was it was automatic 20% gratuity that was not deserved at all.

I've visited Yardbird a number of times - always liked it. The cheese and watermelon appetizer was again terrific. But the ribs were a disappointment. The top 2 layers were terribly overcooked, dry and stringy. The bottom layer, thicker, were juicy and good.

We had the most delicious dinner! For starters: biscuits, burnt ends, and fried green tomatoes, all recommended by our server, and for mains: fried chicken, fried chicken and waffles, and shrimp & grits. One member of our party thought we were ordering too much, but it all magically disappeared 😜. I honestly could haven’t eaten much, much more it was so fabulous. The interior and atmosphere are sophisticated an fun and service is delightful, friendly, efficient, and not overbearing.

Very nice time dining at Yardbird. The Chicken n Watermelon n Waffles was quiet good and definitely enough for two. We also had the biscuits (made fresh and warm) and a side of Mac n Cheese (small portion for the price but still very good).

Staff is very accommodating. Parking is always a challenge in SoBe so inevitably after circling for nearly 30 minutes we were late arriving at the restaurant. It was a busy day and I felt sure they were not going to be able to seat us. However, I was wrong. They greeted is cheerfully and not only seated us but did so within 5 minutes.

An otherwise outstanding experience was marred by less than stellar service. All of us loved our food, however the server ignored me when trying to flag her down for additional sauce. Was looked right in the eye while she chose to carry on a conversation with her fellow staff member (I was waving pretty hard so I doubt that she didn't see me, since she was looking my way directly). This is unacceptable and the first time I directly experienced this, and would expect something far better from a restaurant in this price range, as we spent quite a bit to dine here. It's the first time I left a tip of less than 10%.

We would come back just because the food is amazing, but it's just a shame the service was not up to par.

Whilst it's a nice atmosphere and buzzy, the food is shockingly overpriced and below average. $26 for 4 fairly small pieces of fried chicken (without fries or anything else) that taste no better than Popeyes or KFC, despite various sellers such as 27 hour marination. The $10 fries were tasteless, a small portion, and again below average (again, sellers such "bacon salt" that I couldn't taste) and the chicken salad was nothing special or worth the money. The restaurant is marketed well and looks good, so draws crowds, however I think they've been fooled into thinking it's worth the money by good branding and "specialising" in fried chicken and have failed to notice how they're being ripped off for average food

If you like southern food this is an excellent place to go. I unfortunately limited with most of the items on the menu because I have dietary restrictions (dairy)...the fried chicken with hot sauce is great (I think there is a hint of honey) and the croutons in the kale salad are delicious!

Had wanted to try Yardbird on my last visit to Miami but couldn’t get a reservation. Happy to have checked it out this trip. Food and service were excellent. Fun place overall.

Only downside is the reservations process. To confirm or modify a reservation that can’t be done on Open Table you must call and both times I called I was on hold for 20 min waiting to talk to someone! Super annoying in an age where that could all be handled online if they could improve their system (like why can’t u text your reservation confirmation???).

Second visit to this location. First was great! This time, food was disapointing. St Louis ribs were dry, shrimp salad had 6 small shrimps and mostly grit. The key lime was bad, quite shameful to serve this in Florida. Service was uneventful and good.

Something tells me they changed recipes or management?

Fun place to go for a casual dinner with some tasty southern food. We started with the fried green tomatoes - very tasty with really good bacon. We then had the fried chicken - can’t go wrong and traditional biscuits. Biscuits were a bit doughy but still good. Would come again.

Overall a great experience. The service was great, our server was very open with sharing his recommendations and we enjoyed the meal. We had the Fried Green Tomato BLT for a starter, then we split the Swine Burger, Mac & Cheese, and St. Louis Ribs. All were great! I ordered one of the Bourbon specials and it was amazing! At the end of the meal, we mentioned it was our last night in Miami and our server gave us a list of places that would be fun for music and dancing on a Tuesday night. Yet again his recommendations were perfect. Great place, I will definitely go back!
