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**

Return visit after a great dinner a year ago. Service is great and we love the diversity. Good and interesting menu though we felt they better accommodated my wife's allergies last year. Overall we loved it, wonderful cocktails to boot! Will return if we ever get back to South Beach.

Fantastic comfort food. The fried chicken was amazing, but so were our deviled eggs and fried green tomatoes starters. We tried the deep fried oreos for dessert, which was our least favorite dish of the night, but some of the other desserts sounded good. The staff was incredibly hospitable! We will be back and will happily recommend to others!! But beware, the portion sizes ate very generous!

We placed our order the server brought out our sides within 15 minutes. It took another 30 MINUTES before the main course came. By then, the others had eaten their sides and my macaroni was cold. I asked him if he could warm it, he said yes he took it, and I thought he was going to bring it right back so I’m waiting to eat my food all at once. He finally came over I asked where is my macaroni he said we don’t warm food we make a new dish it should be another 5 minutes. I waited the 5 minutes, no macaroni, so I ate my chicken, waffle and grits without the macaroni because now that food was getting cold. I was done eating when he brought my macaroni. Which I then asked for a to go box. I tried to make this short but I was not happy. It was my sister’s 50th birthday it was 7 of us and this was not a good look. I just felt as if he didn’t really care. And for the amount of money that we spent he should have cared just a little. I don’t normally complain, I just don’t go back. If my service had been bad the first time I went I wouldn’t go back but I will give it one more try before I call it quits with Yard Bird.

Everything was amazing, from the food, to the service, to just the ambience/vibe and overall aesthetic of the interior decor. Throughout the entire meal I just kept repeating “oh my god” and “what the f*ck” because of how unbelievably good the food was. We started with the Classic Buttermilk Biscuits (which I told my boyfriend may possibly be better than Red Lobster’s famous Cheddar Bay Biscuits). Afterwards I ordered the short rib dish which came with mashed potatoes and veggies, while my boyfriend got the fried half chicken. He also got a Shirley Temple to drink while I drank the Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade (which I also recommend, but keep in mind it really does taste more like Bourbon than Lemonade). I’m sure any of the dessert options would’ve killed as well, but we were too full after everything to continue. We were visiting Miami for our anniversary and if we ever come back we’re definitely coming back here — no questions asked. I literally have nothing bad to say.

I made reservations to begin our anniversary/birthday celebration. This location is a little small but cute. We’ve been to the one in Vegas, which was great!! I was disappointed to hear(after I ordered) they ran out of straws. Needless to say, I did not drink my lemonade or water. I ordered chicken and waffles, both were great...until I noticed hair fried into my chicken. There went my appetite. Reason behind 3 stars for food. Tables are very close together which is a negative!

It’s a nice restaurant, with really great staff. The dinner selection isn’t the biggest, and not everyone can find something on the menu. The fried chicken tastes great, but definitely not worth the price. Great for cocktails and dinner, when you don’t care about value.

Had a fabulous server Cassidy I believe her name was, we sat outside, it is a lovely little space! We had the Fried Green Tomatoes, which were some of the best I’ve ever had! The street corn was a fantastic flavorful recommendation from our server, ended up being one of our top dishes of the night. The Mac and cheese is always a win. Then we ordered the chicken watermelon and waffles for a shared main with the other sides. The chicken is always fantastic and delicious here, just perhaps a little overpriced. I think 26 dollars would be fine for this dish, it’s only a half chicken & waffles and a little watermelon don’t cost much so I would suggest to the restaurant either lowering the price or giving maybe two drumsticks, two wings & thighs rather than the breast. Next time I’ll probably just get more sides and the 26$ chicken which is just as delicious! Either way, will be coming back for more. I always enjoy this place & the cocktails are fun!

There aren’t very many soul food restaurants near Miami , so I was pleased to be able to find this one. The server was very thorough, but we were a little irritated that our food and appetizer came out at the same time and that our appetizers were cold. We also went about 30 mins without seeing our server. If you’re looking for good chicken and awesome Mac n cheese though , this is the place.

I'd heard about this place from many people so on my recent visit to Miami, I decided to try it. I really liked it. The food was pretty good and the ambiance is very classy without feeling stuffy; I like it. The food was delicious. I didn't care for the pineapple mimosa I had; it was a bit sour. I had the shrimp and grits to eat. They were good.

I have been several times in Yardbird ST & B, and the food is outstanding.
I guess the changes in personnel are affecting the service since they does not look willing to manage the complexity of the inquired service for the restaurant. I hope next time the service will be at the same level of the kitchen.
