Yardbird Southern Table & Bar - The Venetian Las Vegas
Book your next event with us
Service was great. Food presentation great. Food taste. Meh. This was the second and likely last visit. Food is only okay.
Everything we ordered was delicious and big servings. We split the fried chicken and Mac and cheese. Unfortunately the service was not very good, our waitress was nowhere to be found most of time and we had to ask other servers for things all the time.
Food was ok, but not memorable. Chicken breading is really light, probably because they don’t drench with chicken in buttermilk like most people would that fry chicken. But, it was very moist, even the breast, so a big plus for that. If you like lots of breading ala KFC, that’s not here. Me personally, I don’t like KFC, so this was very good fried chicken.
Biscuits; if you’ve ever made Bisquick biscuits or popper them from a can, they are better than what they make. Theirs are rather hard and dry. In comparison, if you’ve every had Red Lobster biscuits and have loved them, Yardbirds version won’t stand a chance.
Pork belly; I LOVE pork belly; that’s not what we had here. We had very thick cut bacon. The texture of Pork belly is supposed to melt in your mouth, like biting through a layer of very thick fat (well, that’s what pork belly is). I had to gnaw through my pork belly slider.
Drinks; wife had Pino Noir, I booed for the Markers Old fashioned. Both good.
Ambiance and noise level; we were seated in the bar area even though I’d had Opentable reservations for a month. Very loud, and impossible to carry on a conversation next to the screaming women a couple tables down. I get it that a restaurant needs to be somewhat loud just to make it come alive, but JFC, is just like to have a nice conversation with the missus every one in a while.
Best I can say is everything was “medium”. I’ve had better fried chicken, biscuits, and pork belly.
Always good food! Tables a little cramped for space and noise but food and service excellent
Loved our waiter Tracy. He was phenomenal.
The fried chicken was the best I’ve ever had and the cocktails are fabulous. Every time I am in Vegas I will go here.
Very good service and the food was excellent.
One of our favorite restaurants. Have tried the one in Miami and LA and they’re very consistently good.
Great time as always. The food is amazing.
I absolutely love coming here and I recommend it to just about everyone I know! I absolutely loved my waiter and his energy, this would be the third time he serves me and he makes me experience so memorable. A million thank you for making my anniversary that much more special!! <3
Our favorite restaurant in Las Vegas. Always a special treat.
Great dining. Nice craft cocktails and original takes on fried chicken.
Outstanding interpretations of southern classics
This place is awesome! Great people showing how to care for the customer. The food is down home with that added flair and worth coming back for.
Best fried chicken there is!
So glad I went with the reviews and picked this spot to celebrate a birthday with dinner here for a friend. A bit pricey for what you get but the food was freakin magically delicious...!!!! Can’t wait to come back! AND they read my note and brought out a slice of cake at the end...I thought they forgot but service was amazing!
Just order the southern staples. Would not recommend the salads. The biscuits and fried chicken are great. Overpriced like everything in Vegas.
The food was very good, although a little pricey for my taste. The staff was excellent, the music was a little loud for comfortable conversation but all in all I would come back again.
Get the chicken and waffles. It is the best but be warned it’s a huge amount of food!
Chicken was awesome and the banana old fashion was so good!!!
Food was good despite having a reservation, we waited 15 minutes for our table. Once seated, we waited another 15 minutes for a waitress. The chicken and waffles was good and presentation was outstanding.
We enjoyed sitting near the kitchen. The food was good. The presentation was wonderful. I would go back.
As always the food and the service was great. Staff always goes out of there way to welcome us back. Every time we visit Las Vegas we make sure to go to Yardbird. You will not be disappointed.
Amazing Grits, 1st time there but will be back. Served with Steak Eggs and Spinach. Wife enjoyed PBR sauce on her shrimp and grits so much I will have to figure out how to make
Hi Bayne, Thank you for taking the time to review Yardbird Southern. We're so glad to hear you enjoyed our shrimp and grits. We look forward to having you back again real soon!
Brunch was a great experience.
Chicken & Waffles are outstanding!
Try different things on the menu. My third time there. The short rib is delicious as are the ribs. It’s a little spendy, but who goes to Vegas to save money.
Excellent service. Great cocktails and a good beer selection as well.
The best fried chicken and waffles ever. Honey hot sauce and bourbon maple syrup are wow. The biscuits taste like someone’s grandma just made them. And the fried green tomatoes with pimento and pork belly are inspired.
Amazing simply amazing
Food was not good at all! Wouldn’t go back for a 2nd chance not worth it, had the chicken and waffles the chicken tasted like it was pre cooked and sat in a Alto sham and it was very very dry like chicken jerky! Side was cold. I was going to say something to are server but never came back until we were all done it was the worst Valentines for us!!
The chicken and waffles is the best. The service is always top notch and the crafted drinks are delicious.
The food and drinks were very good. The only complaint was that it was noisy.
Excellent food and service. Gluten free fried chicken in a dedicated GF fryer. It takes 30 minutes to fry the chicken because it is from scratch. Arrived piping got and delicious. They communicate that up front.
The server was just the right balance of attentive and freedom.
Enjoyed the cocktails, too. Clearly popular. Was the busiest restaurant we've been to in Vegas.

If you like Southern Fried Chicken, then you should eat at Yardbird. Best tasting Fried Chicken in the city. I had the Nashville Hot Chicken Sandwich and it didn't disappoint. Roasted Brussel Sprouts was perfectly cooked and it was topped off with Honey which cut the bitterness of the Brussels down. Highly recommend this place
In town for 3 nights to see the Tim Burton installation at The Neon Museum. Friend in the restaurant business recommended all the restaurants for our visit. We started with Yardbird. So good. The fried green tomato blt, smoked brisket on a biscuit to start. So delicious. I had the smoky whiskey. Comes under glass in a cloud of smoke. Very showy, good whiskey sour taste. Although there was a hint of liquid smoke. Fried chicken and waffles served with watermelon was so good. We’ve had fried chicken all over the country and this was up at the top. Crispy, yet tender and juicy. Staff was attentive. Music was to our liking. I would recommend Yardbird.
Yardbird is always our place to go in Vegas. The grits are sooooo good and fluffy.
