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**

This wasn’t my first visit to Yardbird and it won’t be my last!! The ambience and the food are bar none!! Shrimp & Grits were on point and smooth, my husband really enjoyed the NY Strip with Fingerling Potatoes with Brussel Sprouts. They never disappoint and we highly recommend!

Food was fantastic. Atmosphere loud and buzzing. Food comes super quick and this is not a leisurely take your time meal.

Best fried chicken and southern comfort food I have had on the east coast. I have been here several times over the last 5 years and the food is consistently superior. A fine dining experience in a laid back atmosphere.

The place is overall good. We sat outside as inside was too cold. The problem is they have a happy hour menu, but unless you sit at the bar, you can't order from it, even if you're there at the right time. There are some things on the happy hour menu that are not on the regular menu that we wanted to try. The waitress said it is impossible to order unless you sit at the bar - how stupid is that?

The food was fantastic! The waitress was very knowledgeable, helpful, and pleasant. The inside of the restaurant was extremely cold. And the patio was cold but bearable. Heat lamps outside would have given them 5 stars. The bathroom was noted by my friend as beautiful.

The food was excellent. Service was good. But honestly it was so loud I could barely hear my waiter or my husband. I hate that because in the end I just can’t wait to get out of there. But the food was excellent!!!!

Was traveling to Miami from orange county for my company’s real estate retreat with Compass and happened upon this place to meet some former clients. Great experience food was delicious and a little bit on the noisy side so conversation was a little hard at times.

Always good food. Only complaint is they charged for extra chips even though they only gave a few with the meal.
Nobody likes getting nickled and dimed. They didn't say there would be a charge.
All in all, the food is worth the expense. Yum.

We went here as our first evening in Miami on holiday and we weren’t disappointed! It’s excellent. I’ve never had much authentic Southern American food before so the server explained the menu and how it’s a sharing style restaurant. We loved it! We did find it a little strange but funny having biscuits (scones) as a starter being British :) A worthwhile stop if your in Miami.

Everything was great.

That said, the noise level inside is way over the top. Why?

We prefer the outdoor dinning area when available.

Absolutely love the food. The best fried chicken ever. And the dessert - the banana split - was amazing. It was almost a deconstructed version of the original, it was to die for.

I was in town for a sorority meeting. I found this restaurant on trip advisor and decided to try it out. I made reservations for 1 pm but changed to 4:30 pm after having a huge breakfast.

Upon arrival my friend and I were seated immediately. Our server Juliet came over introduced herself and graciously answered all my friend’s questions about gluten-free options.

I ordered the chicken, waffles, and watermelon. My friend ordered the gluten-free shrimp and grits. Both dishes came out pretty quickly and was delicious. I would definitely eat here again.

The quality of the food has diminished. Same dishes I use to eat a few years back have changed and do not taste good. Yet it’s still overpriced for what you get.

Exceptional food with even better service. The food and drinks are always amazing, but the service is what makes the restaurant one of the best in the state of Florida. The Yardbird Old Fashion is a must of you like a classic drink. The biscuits and fried chicken taste better than mom's home cooking, and the desserts are second to none. It is also great when you are visited by the manager and head chef, just to ask about your satisfaction. Amazing!!

Once again, another amazing dinner! Started off with the chicken biscuits for an app then had the ribs for dinner with a side of their corn. Ribs fell right off the bone and corn was packed with flavor and a little heat. Finished off with the deep fried Oreos. Awesome!

I have eaten here 6+ times. Love bringing people here since the food is always so good. On this occasion, I came with 5 of my clients. They all loved it. I usually get the short ribs or the chicken, this time I went for a healthier option the Mahi which I have never tried before.

The fish was dry and overly seasoned with salt and pepper, the bed of corn on the bottom was cold but oddly overcooked. Since I was with clients I didn't want to send it back - so I didn't finish it. I would have liked our waitperson to have asked me if everything was ok with it since half of it was still on the plate.

Everyone else's dinner was perfect including the appetizers and drinks.

I would say to fix the healthier options and not over season them. If I hadn't eaten here so many times before I would like not to return, but I know this was errant on their part and I would have received something else if I sent it back all with a smile.

The other thing that is great about coming here with people from out of town is that you are only a short walk to Lincoln Road and that is fun to do after dinner, especially if they have not been there before.
