About Yardbird Southern Table & Bar

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**

Awesome service and beautiful restaurant. Made brunch reservations for early morning and ate outside on the patio before it got too busy. Delicious chicken and waffles and the biscuits are a must!

Worst experience I’ve ever had here. Server (Dominique) was not experienced and not well versed. Had to ask for water multiple times. Did not know the bourbon we wanted was out. Suggested a bourbon that didn’t exist. Manager tried to salvage the experience but was just extremely awkward. Sad to say after having our engagement dinner here this will probably be the last time we visit. This should not be advertised as an upscale dining experience.

I was not blown away by the fried chicken. It was almost cold by the time I got it and the taste was no better than Popeyes chicken.

Great place. Best dinner we had on our three night stay in Miami Beach. I had the short rib and my wife had the shrimp and grits. Both excellent. Make sure you make a reservation.

The restaurant specializes in southern comfort food like fried chicken and biscuits. I had the fried chicken and it was very good. My wife ordered the grouper and was told that it was sold out. Unfortunately for my wife they did not have any other healthy dinners on the menu. She ended up having a salad and biscuit for dinner. This is a very lively and busy restaurant. I enjoyed the fried chicken and would return if I am in the South Beach area.

Worst service ever. If you are holding some food and it is almost done, they might take your arm with the food. Also, they act like it is a personal affront if you don't order more drinks or coffee with dessert. The waiter actually came back and asked if we were sure we didn't want some tea after we finished our dessert. I went to a manager who said they agreed the service was wrong, but she didn't even offer a discount.

The food is great, but it isn't worth feeling like you're at a used car lot. Try take out.

The biscuits and fried chicken are amazing! My friend and I are from out of town and really enjoyed our brunch experience - the service was great and they were very nice about accommodating our luggage as we were on our way to the airport! Would definitely go to Yardbird again.

Loved this place. Probably the best fried chicken I’ve ever had. And the sides and apps are amazing. It was hard not to fill up on the biscuits, they were so delicious. I highly recommend.

This place was awesome. Went here due to reviews saying there was a gluten free fried chicken option. Everything was delicious and they were knowledgeable and accommodating to make the French fries gluten free too. It was so wonderful to have great comfort food gluten free! Truly a treat for anyone with celiac! We ordered a “regular” bird and a gluten free bird and they tasted so very similar- no compromise on taste whatsoever! Go here!!

I’ve been eating here the past couple of years and feel like the quality of food has unfortunately fallen off. My waffle was soggy. The chicken seemed over cooked. Yardbird used to be one of my favorite places. What happened?

I loved the ambiance . The food was delicious. We had seen a review of the restaurant on a food network channel and were excited to give it a try. We were not disappointed. The fried chicken and waffles with the spicy watermelon danced in my mouth. Vivien, our server was efficient and classy. A perfect evening.

My sister and I had a fantastic time at Yardbird last week on our Miami get-away. Our waitress Rihanna guided us to the most must-eat dishes with most friendly service. We loved it so much we returned 2 days later and she came over to check on us :) We also got biscuits to go for our plane ride! Shrimp & Grits, Preachers Ham + fried egg, blackberry lemonade, the crispy chicken biscuit, and THE DEEP FRIED OREO will be in our tastebud memories forever... until the next time!

Thank you for an unforgettable dinner! My boyfriend and I had dinner here for my birthday and I must say our waiter Dominic was extremely helpful and went over the top to ensure that we had a wonderful experience. All the other staff members we spoke with were also really polite and friendly. Great atmosphere, outstanding staff, and the food was incredible! I would definitely come back and would recommend this to all my friends.
