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**

Fantastic late lunch during Art Basel. The filled biscuits were delicious, salads great and fried chicken very yummy. Drinks were also very good and service attentive. Portions are large and meant to be shared. It's a fun place with great food. Not a single complaint.

Delicious food-plating could be more exciting. The look of the food on plate dod not equal the great taste. The fried chicken for ex was delicious but looked very lonely on plate.
Corn bread delicious and nice looking but hard to cut. Kept falling apart and cheddar cheese was holding it together rather than the body of the corn bread. I felt like my food ( the fried chicken and corn bread was flying around in peices ). Hard to eat. All delicious though. I felt annoyed.

The food came out way too fast. It was not a relaxed dining experience. Our appetizers came faster than our drinks. Unless you tell someone you're in a rush you should t finish a 2 course meal
In 20 minutes. Also the sides were not great. The fried chicken was good, but not great as the skin wasn't crispy at all. For a place we've been hearing great things about for years it was disappointing.

I am a huge fan of this restaurant and I would recommend it to anyone! There is something on the menu to suit all palates. On this particular occasion, we visited to celebrate a friend's birthday. Our waiter was very attentive and had a good sense of humor. The food was amazing as usual. I love the vibe of this restaurant, it always has an eclectic clientele which makes for prime people watching.

We chose Yardbird because it popped up as one of the best restaurants in South Beach and they were not wrong! The minute we walked in, we loved the atmosphere, the hostesses were so friendly and we were seated almost immediately. The waiter was very attentive and when asked for suggestions on best dishes, he did not disappoint. We were only a table of two but I wish we had been more so we could try more dishes! The wedge salad was unique and refreshing; the housemade biscuits were melt-in-your-mouth and the chicken and waffles...such a classic and done so right! OH, and the deep fried oreos?! Heaven in a bite. I would absolutely go back and recommend to anyone travelling to Miami!! Thanks for a great evening, Yardbird!

Loved the food. They seated us at a tall table and the chairs would not fit close enough to the table without overlapping the backs of the chairs. Extremely uncomfortable seating which is a shame because the food was spectacular and the wait staff was great. I would have given it 5 stars had in it been terribly uncomfortable the entire time I was there. That was the only complaint but everyone at our table complained about it.

I was seated early at a nice table. I knew what I wanted so ordered when my server arrived with my drink. I ordered chicken with biscuits as usual . It was void but the biscuit and chicken were room temperature which was disappointing.
I also ordered something new a salad of blistered tomatoes and ricotta . A bland dish but this was totally devoid of seasoning.
I had to ask for salt and butter 2x's.
Overall it was not up to par. I think this restaurant has become so popular the food has suffered.

Not family friendly, there's no kids menu. The chicken and waffles were good, but the cornbread was way too dry and crimbly and the "sweet tea" really wasn't good. It tasted like the bags had been left in too long, and there wasn't a lot of sweet to it. So if you want decent fried chicken and don't mind spending a lot, great - but we won't be going back.

Yardbird was amazing! Wonderful food and atmosphere. I had my 30th birthday dinner here with 6 of my friends (all from out of town). Our server, Vivien, was amazing as well as Andrew- the manager. They were super sweet and accommodating of our group. Foodwise- I remcommend trying a little bit of everything- it's all amazing.
