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**

Fantastic fried chicken and St. Lewis Ribs! The maple hot sauce is a must with the chicken.

The biscuits were lackluster but the street corn made up for that. Strongly recommend the bourbon blackberry lemonade to pair.

Service was excellent - our server was very attentive, never leaving a glass empty, and knew exactly what to recommend on the menu.

Service was great, loved the ambiance. We got chicken and waffles which were decent but by no means the best we’ve ever had. Biscuits were the same. Bloody Mary was on point. Only knock is on price, but the chicken and waffles should be enough for two to share.

The food here was amazing - there wasn't anything that we didn't love. All of the staff we came in contact with were great from the hostess to the girl who kept our water glasses filled. Just be prepared when the check comes, though! This is not a "cheap eats" place. But other than that, it was fabulous.

We fell ill after the meal we had. I suppose it was the watermelon we had with the chicken.
“Thank you” for the spoilt vacation.
The meal and the restaurant are overpriced and overrated.

We made a reservation on Open Table. It came back as high top table only. I called to change it. They told me they would make a note to change it if they could.

We arrived and were told only high top was available by the manager. I pointed out several open tables and the manager said, “OK, It’s 7:15. I can seat you there, but you have to be done and out by 8:30 I have that table reserved.”

We took the table. I wish we had walked out.

The manager spent the rest of the time we were there outside on his phone frantically pacing up and down the sidewalk in front of the restaurant windows which was bizarre.

The music, classic rock, was up so loud our waitress could not hear us. The lights were so dim we had to use the flashlight on our phones to read the menu.

Because our waitress could not hear us very well, she made a few mistakes in our orders. We didn’t get an appetizer we ordered. Wrong dessert was delivered etc.
Really not her fault and we were cool about it. It didn’t ruin our meal.

The food we did get Fried Chicken and Waffles and Smoked St. Louis Ribs were very, very good. So too were the deserts.

Our wait staff was good too, just a little handicapped in the dark with the ridiculously loud music. Much louder than even the Vegas location.

Food is great, but I’ve had as good or better. I probably won’t be back to this location.

South Beach has exceptional restaurants with inviting ambiance and world class service. The food here is up to that standard. But this location, on the night of our visit, felt like it had been hijacked by a night club promoter.

Fried chicken was good but way over priced for what it is. Cocktails and food are just too expensive for this type of restaurant. Service was excellent but chair wasn’t that comfortable. Won’t go back again.

I enjoy this restaurant and have been several times. The chicken is the featured dish. This time I found the chicken to be a bit dry and too salty. Usually it's better.

While my pork ribs were delicious, they arrived more than 20 minutes after my companion’s entree. One of our sides arrived even later and the other never appeared at all. The server seemed only interested in getting us to buy more drinks. The food’s not bad but customer satisfaction is low on Yardbird’s priorities.

We were served completely raw mahi-mahi, which was then followed by partially raw chicken. They comped us for both meals and claimed they were just slammed for the holidays. It ruined our dinner completely. We would never eat there again.

Such a great spot and on the evening of Christmas Day! Great service. Food was incredible.
Great for kids if earlier in the evening. Loud enough so kids can be kids at least a little.
Overall, a great experience.

Great place and awesome Southern food right in the middle of Miami Beach? WHAT? Yes, good stuff. Go burn all those calories afterwards and stroll along Lincoln Road Mall. If you are lucky, you'll see the Boteros on display.

Was in town for a couples trip and have been here many times solo on business and have been thoroughly impressed consistently. This trip was an introductory to my friends who have never been and they were blown away. Rhonda our host was exceptional in accommodating our tardiness (Miami traffic) and Cassidy our server is an icon. I know the menu well but she took the menu and exclusive offerings to the next level...when you have great people that work for you that’s something to be thankful for but if you have someone great that is also passionate about what they are doing you better count your lucky stars.
