Yardbird Southern Table & Bar - Miami
**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.
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!
Hello Pawchaw, Thank you for reviewing Yardbird Southern Table and Bar in Miami Beach. We are thrilled that you had a great experience! I hope you will allow us to host you again soon. Jeremy R Miller General Manager
Perfect! From the food to the service to the atmosphere! Everything was perfect. I frequent South beach often and whenever I’m in town I make sure I come to YB. I love the new additions to the menu as well. Our server was very knowledgeable and we loved that!
Husband and I shared Nashville hot chicken special, short ribs, mac and cheese, brussel sprouts and cant forget the unbelievable biscuits! Everything was so good. Finished with a key lime pie that was also delicious. Would definitely return here each time I visit Miami.
Our dining experience was great!! First off our waiter was beyond the best! Chris is very passionate about the restaurant and had the best recommendations! He made the experience awesome! The food was very good too, wes be back!
Yardbird is consistently good. I try to visit every time I am in Miami - it never disappoints.
I will be back as soon as possible and highly recommend for the freshness and flavor.
Excellent date night spot
The food is OUTSTANDING! Chicken is so flavorful, mashed potatoes are amazing... everything is great. Service is wonderful. Space is a little tight, and it’s a bit noisy - but for a great meal, you can’t beat it:
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.
Food was great and flavorful!
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.
Come every year and enjoy yard bird every time. Fried chicken , fried green tomatoes and deviled eggs-it doesn’t get any better than that. Our server Silvio made the experience extra special-what a guy!
See you next year!!
Great restaurant consistently good all around
Excellent food and drinks, albeit a bit pricy for southern cuisine, but delicious.
Great Experience with my parents. My Dad said it was the best chicken sandwich he has ever had!
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!
Loved the food and the service
It music is over powering
Hard to talk and communicate
My Thanksgiving meal at Yardbird Miami was wonderful. Everything was divine. From the deviled eggs to the key lime pie, it was absolutely amazing...and we ordered lots of food! Brussel Sprouts, Deviled Eggs, Biscuits, Turkey Dinner and Key Lime Pie! It was ALL good.
The Watermelon Sling (cocktail) was amazing. Staff were friendly.
Thanksgiving Family Lunch. Amazing food! We had a great time!
Two people shared one meal and drinks 100$ kinda pricey but delicious
Amazing food and ambiance! Cannot wait to come back!
Best place in town !
Superb as ever! Love the bourbon list and the food is excellent with the chicken watermelon and waffles a firm favourite. The waiters behind the bar deserve a special mention. Their knowledge of bourbons is fantastic. A must visit spot in Miami.
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!
Great food and service. Kind of expensive
Amazing food and experience
The brunch was ok, it was a bad choice , my husband is vegan and they don’t have much to offer , only plain salad
Mine was good and the Bourbon lemonade was so refreshing .
Wonderful experience, accompanied my GF here for her birthday. Would defly visit again.
I ate and felt like a king this day. The service was phenomenal and the food portions were incredible. One plate can feed two people! I’ll definitely be coming back. I’m already looking forward to it.
Yardbird came highly recommended for my sister's birthday and I'm so glad we went. The food was superb!
Yardbird never fails to provide a wonderful dining experience! The servers are lovely and have great training as it is obvious throughout the entire dining experience. The food is incredibly delicious. My boyfriend and I make a trip to Miami at least once a year and this is always our first stop for dinner. We love it so much that we will be returning for brunch. This has to be my favorite place for fried chicken. Also do yourselves a favor and order the nutella filled beignets! Does not disappoint! Cannot wait to be back
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.
