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**

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.

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.

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!!

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!

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!

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!

The place is overall good. We sat outside as inside was too cold. The problem is they have a happy hour menu, but unless you sit at the bar, you can't order from it, even if you're there at the right time. There are some things on the happy hour menu that are not on the regular menu that we wanted to try. The waitress said it is impossible to order unless you sit at the bar - how stupid is that?

The food was fantastic! The waitress was very knowledgeable, helpful, and pleasant. The inside of the restaurant was extremely cold. And the patio was cold but bearable. Heat lamps outside would have given them 5 stars. The bathroom was noted by my friend as beautiful.
