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**

I had outstanding service. There was a small issue with the order and the server sent us home with extra chicken and mashed potatoes on top of our left overs! I will be back every visit to Miami

We had a lovely brunch today. Don’t miss the chicken. We split the biscuits and a power bowl. Service was quick and the food quality was excellent. Don’t miss Yardbird if you are coming to Miami.

Had a girls trip to Miami and wanted some place fun yet flavorful for us girls to chat. The wait time was under 10mins even tho we had reservations we were seated in a good time. The servers recommended almost everything because nothing is better than anything on the menu the biscuits fried chicken and macn cheese were my favorite. That jam was like nothing I've ever had. Overall it's a great spot and I'll be back.

We got there late and the gentleman at the front still honored our reservation ( without giving the look of shame.) Sat us right away. The food came to the table super quick, at great temperature, beautiful presentation. Our waitress was really nice. We will definitely be going back.

Terrific fried chicken, yum! Caesar salad, along with sides Mac n cheese and French fries great too. Could probably use additional veggie sides. Desserts didn’t sound appealing to us but we’re more basic... chocolate cake, brownie or hot cookie sundae, more chocolate options basically! Seated next to kitchen doors a little tricky.

Brunch on a Saturday! The food was delicious, starting with the gigantic cinnamon roll, followed by the chicken and waffles for me and shrimp and grits for my wife. No complaints about the food, staff or ambiance, however the prices were pretty steep.

Fantastic fried chicken and St. Lewis Ribs! The maple hot sauce is a must with the chicken.

The biscuits were lackluster but the street corn made up for that. Strongly recommend the bourbon blackberry lemonade to pair.

Service was excellent - our server was very attentive, never leaving a glass empty, and knew exactly what to recommend on the menu.

Service was great, loved the ambiance. We got chicken and waffles which were decent but by no means the best we’ve ever had. Biscuits were the same. Bloody Mary was on point. Only knock is on price, but the chicken and waffles should be enough for two to share.

The food here was amazing - there wasn't anything that we didn't love. All of the staff we came in contact with were great from the hostess to the girl who kept our water glasses filled. Just be prepared when the check comes, though! This is not a "cheap eats" place. But other than that, it was fabulous.

We fell ill after the meal we had. I suppose it was the watermelon we had with the chicken.
“Thank you” for the spoilt vacation.
The meal and the restaurant are overpriced and overrated.

We made a reservation on Open Table. It came back as high top table only. I called to change it. They told me they would make a note to change it if they could.

We arrived and were told only high top was available by the manager. I pointed out several open tables and the manager said, “OK, It’s 7:15. I can seat you there, but you have to be done and out by 8:30 I have that table reserved.”

We took the table. I wish we had walked out.

The manager spent the rest of the time we were there outside on his phone frantically pacing up and down the sidewalk in front of the restaurant windows which was bizarre.

The music, classic rock, was up so loud our waitress could not hear us. The lights were so dim we had to use the flashlight on our phones to read the menu.

Because our waitress could not hear us very well, she made a few mistakes in our orders. We didn’t get an appetizer we ordered. Wrong dessert was delivered etc.
Really not her fault and we were cool about it. It didn’t ruin our meal.

The food we did get Fried Chicken and Waffles and Smoked St. Louis Ribs were very, very good. So too were the deserts.

Our wait staff was good too, just a little handicapped in the dark with the ridiculously loud music. Much louder than even the Vegas location.

Food is great, but I’ve had as good or better. I probably won’t be back to this location.

South Beach has exceptional restaurants with inviting ambiance and world class service. The food here is up to that standard. But this location, on the night of our visit, felt like it had been hijacked by a night club promoter.

Fried chicken was good but way over priced for what it is. Cocktails and food are just too expensive for this type of restaurant. Service was excellent but chair wasn’t that comfortable. Won’t go back again.

I enjoy this restaurant and have been several times. The chicken is the featured dish. This time I found the chicken to be a bit dry and too salty. Usually it's better.

While my pork ribs were delicious, they arrived more than 20 minutes after my companion’s entree. One of our sides arrived even later and the other never appeared at all. The server seemed only interested in getting us to buy more drinks. The food’s not bad but customer satisfaction is low on Yardbird’s priorities.
