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**

Great food and service! Hands down best fried chicken I’ve had. Also tried the deviled eggs, beef brisket and biscuit which were simply amazing. Our waiter was awesome. Nice and knowledgeable! Very professional. Nice ambiance and great location. I’ll be back :-)

Disappointed! Very limited menu. The fried chicken appears to be their signature dish and probably should have ordered that. Didn’t feel like all of that food so I compromised by ordering the grilled mango salad with chicken tenders. The chicken was really dry, the mango wasn’t ripe, and the dressing was tasteless. Also, ordered the biscuits which were decent not anything special. My husband got the catfish which was tasty but over the same bed of corn as was his wedge salad. The wedge salad was also dry and tasteless. Bottom line...skip the salads!!

Ok - so it is the best chicken in the whole world. But, there’s more, so are the deviled eggs, sandwiches and both sauces that come out. The biscuits are insane and although we didn’t have a desert - they looked (and were complimented by our table neighbors) to be too good. Did I mention the drinks? Cocktails fantastic. Impressive and well priced wine list - the chicken wine flight is super value for great wine. But that’s not why Yardbird is fantastic. It’s the service. Manager always on hand and really makes sure everyone is well taken care of. Thank you. Hurry up and open new locations so we can try to visit all restaurants around the world in one year. Would we get a free chicken for that???

We asked for a table outside, and told it would take 10-20 minutes. After about 10 minutes, we were told it would take longer, and shown to a nice table inside by the windows. Other than the silly scripted “ intro to the menu, service was ok- not outstanding. Food was all terrific, generous portions, nicely presented. We left happy, full, and looking forward to returning.

Usually stop by every time we drive to Orlando from Key West. Haven’t been in a while and wanted to relive the memories and celebrate my 40th birthday. The shrimp and grits are still great but the chicken does not have really crispy skin like I enjoy and the Mac and cheese feels like something you could get at a cafeteria or buffet. To add insult to injury, they did not acknowledge my birthday even though it was on the reservation and I was carded. I kind of understand since I’m a server and I kind of do the same thing. Good meal though lackluster, though it was not “fun.” If you are dining for a special occasion, either make it explicitly clear to your server or come in with low expectations. Otherwise you may be sorely disappointed. I know it’s just another year and a complimentary dessert but I used to really enjoy this restaurant years ago and it’s no longer the same...

Might skip this restaurant next time I drive up from the Keys.

The ever reliable Yardbird always delivers. Once again, friendly service, epic southern inspired cooking and a drinks list to keep even the most critical student of choice bourbon happy.
It's always a great vibe and even when humming, the place never feels claustrophobic. It's a shame our nearest outlet is over 4,000 miles away, ruling out a last minute dash for Kentucky's finest and Tennessee's best. Succulent chicken and brisket, plus the sweetest watermelon and most flavoursome key lime pie north of the keys.
Beg and plead for a reservation, your sleepy southern soul will be eternally grateful.

Yummy southern food. Juicy crispy fried chicken. I like my waffles a bit crisper. Excellent grits and Mac and cheese. Peach cobbler was delicious. Meals are large so sharing makes for being able to try more things!

Food was excellent service was awful. Ordered one dish after 20 min was told it would take another hour because it wasn’t prepped. Order something else and came out 15 min after everybody else at the table was served.

Their cocktail list is most unusual and delicious especially the old fashions. Service was warm and attentive. Wish the hostesses and/or greeters were a bit nicer and it wouldn't hurt if they smiled.
The fried green tomato appetizer was really outrageous The Fried chicken was yummy and so were the mashed potatoes. Worth the effort, so glad we had an early reservation.
