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**

Amazing place. I am officially a fan of deviled eggs (guess I have never have them made the right way for me). The fried chicken was among the best I have ever had!

Great combination of ambience, style, great food, and great service. Celebrating our anniversary and with one of us having significant allergies, eating out can be frustrating - however, Yardbird went above and beyond to cater to our needs and food was extremely tasty. Small nit - felt a bit rushed (hence overall 4 not 5)

Enjoyed an awesome meal and experience at Yardbird! Our server was awesome and had plenty of suggestions to help us navigate the menu. We ended up ordering several entrees and apps, and ate them all 'family style'. The chicken and waffles were to DIE for, and biscuit sandwiches amazing, and the drinks strong. We had a blast! Can't wait to return!

Not worth the price. $4 for a glass of tea and $10 for an order of French fries is way over priced in our opinion. We don’t mind paying for good food but not that much for sides and a glass of tea. Will not go back.

We have been coming to Yardbird for years at least twice each trip to south beach. This time and the time before I have to say I was slightly disappointed. The biscuits while great were cold I think because they prepare them ahead now and also the Mac/cheese not hot at all I get it super busy but part of why we love it is bc things are both delicious and hot. Cocktails and service as always great!

Absolutely amazing!! Not to be missed! We lucked into their Las Vegas location on a trip several years ago and now make it our must stop restaurant on each subsequent trip. Fortunately, we also now found the Miami location. It was everything and then some. Consistently delicious preparation of fried chicken and tender biscuits with a fun new favorite of lobster mac ‘n cheese that has to be seen to be believed. Save room for authentic Key lime pie and a cult favorite of fried Oreos. Staff and service at every level were warm and inviting. It’s a taste of Southern hospitality and cooking smack dab in the middle of the bright lights of Miami Beach. Just go!

Over priced, first of all. Service was ok, but I got spilled on once and bumped into while eating several times by hurrying waiters/waitresses. The food was merely ok, not at all what I was expecting based on my date's description. Fried chicken, their specialty, was good not great, the waffles were meh, same for the biscuits. The cheese grits I didn't care for at all, and I also didn't like their bourbon maple syrup. I wouldn't recommend this restaurant.

I would have given a higher overall and ambiance rating if the restaurant enforced their statement about casual attire. I was not happy with quite few men dining near me with tank tops on and visible armpits. This is a dining establishment with dining prices, not a fast food chain. Food and service was wonderful.

One of the best places to dine in Miami Beach. Unpretentious but beautiful. Delicious southern cuisine with a twist. We had the kale salad and the brisket sandwich. Both amazing! And the fried oreos are to die for. Make reservations because this is one of the few places in Miami where this is a must.

The food was good as usual but we had a large party and was given some food that wasn’t freshly prepared. The Mac n Cheese was warm and not served hot. The fried chicken wasn’t crispy. The best part was pretty much the cocktails.
I’ve been to Yardbird a bunch of times so I know how great of a meal they can serve but this night was definitely an off night.
