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**

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.

Everything was incredible! We really loved the atmosphere and the food was amazing. The street corn side and hush puppies appetizer were fantastic and my wife and I both enjoyed our dinners just as much! Highly recommend this place for great locally homemade southern food!

The food here is amazing. Can't wait to go back! The fried chicken was the best I've ever had and the brussel sprouts, grits, biscuits were also top notch.

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.

Everything perfect. The food cooked very nice, only the maid was in a hurry to take the order. I can recommend outside tables if you prefer a quieter area without too much noise

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.

Visited for the first time in 2 years. Chicken arrived quickly but you could tell it was not fresh out the grease. It was tasty in spite if that flaw. Waffles were perfect. Watermelon was tasty. Drink was flavorful and smooth. Waitress was on point. Place is a bit rundown. Faucet was broken in ladies room. Side door had smudges.

We had reservations and were seated promptly. The wedge salad and charcuterie plate are both excellent appetizers. The charcuterie plate is huge- enough for 2 very hungry people- so share. Same with the fried chicken. Thankfully we were cautioned about the large portion by the server and split an order. A note on the chicken- it was delicious, but I think the chicken at Root and Bone is a tad better. For desert, the key lime pie was good but nothing to write home about. Espresso was bitter- stay clear.

Every time I visit Miami (1-2 times per year) I try to visit Yardbird at least once. This time I took a bunch of clients who loved it on Sunday and my wife on Tuesday. Very different occasions but both wonderfully enjoyable. It doesn’t just serve chicken- but the chicken is awesome!

3 of 4 of us had a great lunch. I was an idiot and ordered a grilled mango salad, which was atrocious. I’m sure, though if you stick with the southern cuisine/chicken, you’ll love it!

Not a noteworthy experience. Very crowded and confined space. Tables are too close together - leaves little to no privacy for conversation. Hostess stand does poor job of reading reservation notes - so don’t bother giving any. They did not honor my seating request (I had to refuse where she was seating my party when there were alternative options available that fit my request), nor did they acknowledge my special event for brunch (I noted we were celebrating a birthday, but they did not mention it - how gauche)!. Food was salty, chicken under seasoned and just underwhelming. Overall, not worth the hype nor money.
