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**

Nice restaurant with good atmosphere and excellent service. My expectations on the food were far from being met (had chicken, which is the specialty) and everyone else's comments on the table were the same.

Sunday bunch, pack um in! The noise level was insane. I foolishly ordered the cinnamon roll after the waitress said she was a connoisseur of this one. It was nothing but common and could be gotten anywhere, and one better than this one. The short rib biscuits were delicious and worth the trip. Drink was ok, partner loved the wine, but small pour.

Used to be fave, but no more. Just don't pay for that stupid bun!

Yardbird is a go to for southern food in South FL and for a solid, reasonably priced restaurant in Miami Beach. Portions are generous for the most part - or at least priced accordingly. I will say I think the quality of the fried chicken has gone down in the last year or so and I find the brisket a tiny bit too sweet but in general, the restaurant has a great selection of southern faves with a modern twist. Everything I’ve ever ordered has been at least good, if not excellent, and I find that the service is always great- friendly & knowledgable servers.

First off, our waitress, Dascha (?), was exceptional!! She was knowledgeable, friendly & very attentive.
As for the food, it was as always very good. Everything was so tasty, well prepared, and filling. The chicken & waffles - pretty much a staple every time I go - was enough for the 3 of us to share. My table mates ordered the quinoa salad and an omelette, which I never tasted since I was focused on the chicken/waffles and the 2 sides we ordered, as well as the biscuits. (The maple honey syrup and the jam served with the biscuits was great!). Rating our meal at the end, the simple Mac & cheese got #1 (stupendous!) followed by a tie between the chicken/waffles and the grits.
The restaurant itself is always well-kept, clean to the eye, and full. Reservations are always recommended.

Food was excellent, as were the cocktails, but what set the night apart was the service. Every member of staff were super friendly and accommodating, especially as we were with a young baby (7 months) and were a bit nervous about eating out. Highly recommend. Thanks for making out evening memorable!

We really loved everything about this restaurant. The atmosphere was lively, but not noisy. The service was exceptional. Our server, Annabelle gave some really suggestions and she was very attentive. The food was delicious. The fried chicken was full of flavor, so it's a must try. We also had the deviled eggs, hushpuppies, brussel sprouts, fried green tomatoes, and a cheeseburger. Then believe it or not some deep dish apple cobbler. Please go you will not be disappointed.

I thought the restaurant was beautiful. The bar was neat.
I thought the main hostess had attitude. Couldn’t crack a smile for anything. Her lovely assistant that showed us to our table made up for it!
Server was nice. Food was tasty but I thought after hearing the hype would be better. Maybe we should have tried something but went for their house signature- chicken, waffles and watermelon. Ordered their signature juice for 8 dollars. Was literally 2 sips and came after our meal. That part was disappointing.
Glad I went. Not running back.

Great food; amazing cocktails; good service. I asked in my reservation for a table with normal chairs and they sat us in a higher table because the place was full. It felt a bit noisy; but it was Friday night, so I guess that's how it goes on those days.
I would definitely come back on slow hours.

Been here before, this time I invited friends this time around, the food was subpar and flavorless waiter was rushing and not attentive. It's like they wanted us in and out to get the next guest seated. Just disappointed.

The food was absolutely outstanding! The mac and cheese with lobster is definitely a meal in itself. We had a large group (8) on Thanksgiving and the place was packed. We had reservations and still had to wait about 30 minutes but we totally understood. The staff was very apologetic and kept us constantly informed of the status. Most of us ordered the turkey dinner which was excellent. The chicken and waffles were to die for and the wedge salad was 2 large portions, which was shared by all. I can't wait to return and try other selections on the menu!

We dined here because the reviews were incredible and we love southern food. The disappointment was also just as incredible. The biscuits were hard and dry with barely any brisket. The chicken was definitely juicy but I prefer breast meat over thighs and that is my fault. We ordered grits with cheese and they were like sand paper, very dry. My boyfriend had to load them with hotsauce for a bit of moisture. I ordered a wedge salad with crispy chicken and it was not good at all. The chicken was undercooked and the wedge wilted from the hot chicken on it. A side dish of corn was wayyy to spicy but again, my issue not theirs. The chicken and waffles dish was ok but definitely not worth the $36 price tag. The watermelon it comes with was not ripe and ready to be eaten. The two best parts of this very ridiculously expensive and regretful experience was the server who was outstanding with knowledge and the deep fried Oreo. I should have only ordered that. There are so many other wonderful places to experience in Miami. don't fall into the trap of reviews and whata popular. Never again.

Ximena was outstanding from when she explained all specials and menu to insisting on an appetizer that was absolutely amazing. To treating us to dessert being it was our 23year anniversary. I would recommend yardbird for anyone wanting a true genuine meal nothing pretentious!! Food delivers on every aspect!
