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**

Came here for Thanksgiving dinner. Food was great and perfect for sharing. However, if you are at all wary about COVID I would not go--most servers (including ours) wore their mask loosely around their mouth only with their nose exposed and mouth exposed when they talked. Our server pulled her mask away from her mouth and leaned in to describe the specials. In short, with that level of mask compliance the restaurant should just not have staff wear them at all because wearing an mask as a glorified chin strap really protects neither the staff nor customers. Tables were close together and appeared to be at full capacity inside; bar was full of people without masks. I get it--some people won't care about this at all. But for me it was disconcerting. So, I think I'll be back, but not during Covid-19.

As always a restaurant where you expect to eat well and in fact you eat above your expectations!!!! Every single dish was delicious. We ordered lobster mc&ch, buttermilk biscuits, chicken tender, BLT caesar salad and the best deviled eggs in all Miami. For dessert a peach cobbler that was outstanding. Service was super nice. We are customers since they opened and it has never disappointed us. BRAVO!

We made reservations for my sister’s birthday as we traveled from Georgia and they came highly recommended. Everything was great. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and her suggestions helped to make our experience better. Food was brought out promptly, hot and delicious; however, great service always makes the experience better. We were welcomed by a manager and made to feel comfortable as we enjoyed our food. We tried the fried green tomatoes, Lewelyn’s Chicken (spelling may be off), the ribs, corn and Mac and cheese. Everything was tasty but the Mac and cheese was my fave. It was a little pricy but it’s worth it as the portion sizes were enough to share. I really enjoyed and will visit everytime we come!

Always a solid choice when at the beach. I been a fan for a while and I am always greeted by a courteous hostess, the server is always pleasant and ready with recommendations, the drinks are always please and I love the food. I highly recommend the deviled eggs, biscuits, lobster Mac and cheese, chicken and waffles and the sweet tea short ribs. For drinks the old fashions are top notch but if you prefer drinks on the sweeter side, the the Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade is a must.

The staff was great but the chicken wasn't as good as I would have expected from a place that features it's chicken so prominently. It was cooked beautifully but the seasoning left a lot to be desired. The honey hot sauce that accompanied it sounded great, but it was neither sweet from the honey nor spicy so it didn't compliment the chicken as much as one would expect.

Everything was fantastic except where we were sat
The table to the right of us was being used by employees which obviously takes away from the experience and there was a lot of flies—we were in the very back so I’d request a different seat if we ever return to Miami. Other than that food was wonderful, service met expectations, and ambiance was enjoyable for the most part.
