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**

Went to Yardbird in Miami after hearing so much about the restaurant from friends and locals. Overall, it was a solid experience. Highlights were the service and the food. Our service, Cassidy was very friendly and professional. She provided some well received recommendations. A downside was the bar was closed for a private party. We arrived early to have a drink and we’re told we were not even allowed in the bar area and must either wait outside or go to the bar next door. Not exactly welcoming. It is quite expensive for comfort food. At the end of the day, its fried chicken, no matter how good.
The tables are also very close to one another and we had laughs with our cozy table neighbors about being able to get out of the seats without knocking your neighbors table over. Good but certainly not great.

Chicken was great but I think they ought to offer ¼ birds - dark meat or white - for people who don't eat one or the other. Service a little slow but probably due to how packed it was. Biscuits were outstanding. Chicken could have been crispier.

This much-hyped venue offering Southern comfort food didn’t impress. Service was erratic to say the least...three of us were sat at a table sat for four, and they never removed the unused setting! The app biscuits were good, but not mind blowing, and the deviled eggs were rather overpowering with dillweed. Fried chicken was just OK. Not worth a second trip for me, but from the crowed, I’m in the minority...

Love Yardbird. Come here every year when I visit Miami. Best fried chicken.. waffles.. cornbread.. grits.. biscuits.... Over the years, if I’m in the area for 4-5 days, it’s not unheard of for my husband and I to come for dinner 2-3 times!

Amazing restaurant! My family and I were just in Miami for a layover and had never really seen the city but decided to check out Yardbird as it was a 15 minute Uber from the holiday inn and open till midnight. Our waitress, Daria A, was warm and welcoming, making us feel right at home in Miami. The food was delicious (definitely get the deviled eggs with the trout roe). A thoroughly relaxing and filling meal after a long time in the airport.

This was the third time we have been to Yardbirds. The first two times were very enjoyable. This last time was a BIG disappointment. We started at the bar to get a drink while waiting for our table. The bartender was very friendly and made our drinks well.

The problem started when we moved to the table. We placed our order with our server which included a salad, a side of grits, a side of Brussels sprouts, and a chicken with watermelon and waffle platter. In less than ten minutes everything arrived at our table instead of bringing the salad first and then the main course. We should have said something but didn’t because no one was around so we started eating everything at once. The grits were lukewarm. When our server appeared we told him about the grits which he begrudgingly replaced.

The platter was a big disappointment for $36. The waffles were cold and there were 4 small pieces of chicken - really only 3.5 pieces since the small wing was barely a bite of meat. Then we noticed that the table next to us received 5 pieces including a very large breast which was missing from our plate. Our server proceeded to ignore us after the grits incident so we didn’t get a chance to tell him.(I.e. he never checked on us.) We had to flag someone down for more water and I could go on but you get the picture.

We don’t expect to go back and we won’t recommend this place to friends. It’s a shame. Hopefully it was an off night for the server and restaurant.

The food and service was excellent. We had the biscuits, herb roasted chicken, fried chicken, brussels, and mashed potatoes. I'm not a bourbon drinker, but they are known for bourbon cocktails and I gave it a try. Yummy!

Went here on our first night in Miami and were not disappointed! There drinks are out of this world! We had the fried green tomato appetizer, the watermelon chicken and waffles and a side of brussel sprouts. Unfortunately, we didn't save room for dessert but the table next to us had the fried oreos and they looked out of this world. I will definitely be back.

Watermelon mojito was amazing. Had hush puppies to start-they were fantastic. Son ordered a burger, said it was one of best he'd ever eaten. I had the fried chicken, the signature dish. I wanted to like it more, but wasn't as overwhelmed as I expected given all the hype. It was good though.

This was our third visit. Staff were nice. The chicken seemed to have been in a holding box. The peach drink seemed tired too. And the flowers on the table are cute but artificial. Table needed a good cleaning. At these prices I plan to explore other places. And to be fair I used to really love Yardbird.

Coming back after a year to Miami, Yardbird has kept its reputation, amazing, tasty & simple food delivered to 5* service.
A no brainer if you ask me.

The food was so good, and the drinks just as good. My husband and I LOVED the biscuits and the hand made apple jam that came with it! He got the short rib and I got the chicken and waffle because we both wanted to try each thing and we were not disappointed. 9/10 would go back
