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 were unfortunately in the middle of the current curfew in South Beach when we booked a table at Yardbird. When we turned up the only option was for take out or delivery. We decided to wait and take out - what a good decision!

The hostess was wonderful, friendly and thankful we decided to still have food. We chose our food from the menu and then waited around 15 mins for our food to be freshly prepared and passed to us.

We then ate in our hotel room but the food was incredible! So tasty and delicious, we really thought some of the quality might have diminished from take out and eating out of cardboard boxes but it really didn’t - the chicken was amazing - so tasty and the waffle and watermelon really good. We shared some sides - the cauliflower and Brussels - and both were excellent. Unfortunate the chips were a little soft but that’s due to the condensation in the box and def not a problem for us.

It was important for us to support the local community at this time and Yardbird didn’t disappoint at all. Looking forward to coming back and eating in the restaurant.

I came for brunch on a Thursday with my boyfriend. They had a prix fixe menu for $25/pp. We both got The BLT appetizer which was amazing! For cocktails, the blackberry lemonade cocktail was refreshing and delicious (we ordered 2 each) The Mac and cheese was okay, I didn’t care for it much. The fried chicken wasn’t that special either but it was fried beautifully and not a greasy mess. I enjoyed the biscuit that came with the meal. The best biscuit I’ve had hands down! The fried Oreo dessert was my fav!!!! I never had a fried oreo and it tasted like the best thing mankind has ever discovered. It came with cookies and cream ice cream. To die for!!!! We also had the nutella beignets. I think the Nutella was too empowering and they could’ve skipped filling these wonderful beignets. The actual dough was yummy. The service was impeccable. Our server was delightful and was really attentive. Overall great place and would like to visit again and try other items on the menu.

Impressive food, service, ambiance and overall experience. We dined inside and it was a little loud, but it didn’t keep us from enjoying our meal at all. I also really appreciated that the server offered me some great mocktails. We wish there was a location in Columbus Ohio so we could go every week!!

The fried chicken was delicious, but we were left less than impressed. We were told that they were out of biscuits, but then had a table next to us 30 minutes later get an order. We noted that we were celebrating our anniversary and they didn't do anything at all to even acknowledge it. We had a friend rave about this restaurant, but we were definitely disappointed.

My favorite Miami Beach restaurant!! If in Miami, I have to go at least once. Food is incredible, down home southern food done right. Chicken is out of this world, shrimp and grits are wonderful. Try the street corn, spicy and delicious. The bacon butterscotch cake is unbelievable. Try if ro the bacon and love for the incredible bourbon ice cream!!!!!!!!! Cocktail list is very good as well. Good bourbon selection. Recommend the Cask strength Angel's Envy.

Can't wait until the DC one opens.

Our waiter Christopher P was the BEST!!!! He made our experience so awesome. He was genuinely interested in making sure we had a great Miami experience as well as a delicious meal. I ordered a to go dinner as well based on his recommendations. Lol! I’m glad I couldn’t get a table the night before because I may not have met Chris. Now on to the food, what more can I say, everything was DELICIOUS 😋. Chicken n waffles n watermelon, shrimp and grits, beef ribs, the street corn was to die for, chicken biscuits, and the cornbread. Yes 2 people unapologetically ate ALL of it. My first stop on my next trip to Miami will be at Yardbird.

Food was really good, service was friendly but sometimes a little hectic, price felt on the high side even taking account of the quality of the food. Air con was way too high, which made our experience a little less comfortable than it might have been. I would recommend for a special night out, but too pricy for a regular haunt.

It's definitely a MUST if you in Miami. As we entered, we had a reservation and they are on point. We were seated and the place is very nice. As per the food. Wow the food. We chose the chicken and waffles with a side of Mac and cheese. Oh and the buttermilk biscuits. They have their own made in house bourbon maple syrup that's to die for. Also a house made hot sauce that is outstanding. Now as for the service, we had the pleasure of having Diana attending us and all I can say BRAVO!!! Being it was my first time here. She made sure I got the full breakdown on what's what and what goes great together. Very warm and outgoing to make sure we were good. She made recommendations and treated us like family. And to think, we found out later she was still in training. Could've fooled me. She was a pro. Thank you Diana for making or experience perfect. You rock!!!

I celebrate my birthday at Yardbird every year since they opened. The food is so delicious. I always leave a clean plate. We had issues with our service this time. One of our meals didn’t arrive. Drink delivery was also delayed. But I don’t go to Yardbird for the service. I go for the decadent deviled eggs, the perfect every time fried chicken, the mouth watering blueberry pancakes... I’m telling you! Delicious every time.
