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**

The service was very solid. Our server seemed like she was happy yo be working there. The kitchen staff was diverse with people of color, which a restaurant serving this food should be. And the food was dope. Expensive, but super dope. They didn't misss on anything we ordered. I was skeptical of the Hot Fried Chicken, but it had perfect amount of sauce and slow heat.

Mod- vibe indoors. Tables are relatively close together. Even with moderate noise, and place only 60% capacity, you could still hear conversations on both aides. Service was friendly and very attentive. Menu was explained and waiter expressive with dishes and sides and was not in business of pushing anything particular, especially the most expensive meals, as some shallow wait staff do. Chef came to table to welcome and some chitchat. Personable and seem to enjoy meeting people.

Extensive, with capital E bourbon menu, and drinks we had were perfect. Sampled the biscuits with butter and home made apple sauce. I am a biscuit freak, and would give them a solid 4 on a 5 scale. Crispy outside, soft but not doughy inside. Nice touch. Ok. Chef, here’s a freebie from a foodie. Offer the same apple sauce, but bourbon infused to take it up a notch, maybe even the butter too! Ok, I’m feeling generous so beee is one more; bourbon infused vinaigrette dressing for the salad! Bibbidy Bam!

This place is known for chicken and it didn’t disappoint. Crispy and nicely cooked chicken pieces. I added the bourbon maple syrup ( yes at home I use it too), and I would add more bourbon to give the flavor a kick) I also added just a slight bit of salt to increase the salt/sweet taste. The accompanying waffle, made with cheese, was a nice addition and offered the same flavor combination. The macaroni and cheese was creamy and presented in a cast iron pot. It was good, but I thought under seasoned, and the cheese on top , I think maybe yellow american, cooled to quickly into that american cheese clumping we all know. Why not some bourbon maple/bacon chips!

Saw going by the burger, fried Oreos, shrimp and grits and all looked good. All dishes have a nice plate presentation.

Prices are average for trendy restaurant. Couple of drinks, appetizers, entrees and coffee will run you about a $100 a piece. But we, as most people we saw went home with a doggie bag that will be another meal.

Yardbird's Chicken and Waffles second to none! No better place for comfort food. When we first arrived there was a hiccup with our reservation and the hostess became busy and forgot to get us at the bar. However, the manager on duty was more than gracious and went above and beyond apologizing. From then on the food and service was exceptional. Love the biscuits and deviled eggs. The salads are big enough for two and the bourbon drinks on the menu are a perfect pairing with the food. Can't wait to go back!

LOVED IT! While on vacation we went to Yardbird for a delicious meal out. Sat outside so the noise level was low. The chicken and waffles were so good. The Old Fashioned drinks also amazing. I can't wait for my next vacation to Miami Beach and a night out at Yardbird!!!

Fantastic food!
Service was friendly and prompt, if a bit rushed. Food comes out as it’s ready (which was VERY fast), and everything is just delicious. HIGHLY recommend to anyone, especially those who are fed up with the high price tags and terrible service common in the area. Best brunch in Miami.

Fried chicken and waffles was the highlight entree. Recommend the Fried green tomatoes BLT for an app. Also, ask for Julian as your server. He's been with them since they opened and very personable.

This would be a 5 star review if not for the constant loud rock music playing the entire time we were there except for one song!
The shrimp and grits was delicious! I had my usual chicken and waffles. Yum!! our server Rafael gave us excellent service . He's 5 stars!!! In fact, he has earned the largest tip I have ever given. Thank you Rafael!
So, a 4 star this visit.
