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**

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.

Food was delicious, service was very friendly! It was our first time dining there, our server gave great suggestions on what dishes to try and our food was brought out promptly. Definitely recommend the deviled eggs, fried green tomato blt, Nashville hot fried chicken sandwich and Nutella beignets...so good!!!

An Early Birthday Treat!

As a native Miamian the hype of a restaurant is often for tourist prepared to spend a pretty penny for the experience of dining at a trendy establishment. So when i saw the Bacon Butterscotch cake on a foodie cable network show I decided to give Yardbird a try.

Two words: The Bomb!

Oh My Gee! Valet parking? Check. Warm greeting at the door? Check.

Daria was our server and did an excellent job of introducing the restaurant, menu items and taking time to ask what types of food we liked and highlighting her recommendations. We decided on the burger and fries and the steak and eggs. I am not a foodie so you will have to look at the menu to get all the details. 😜 A side of fried green tomatoes topped with pork belly and mac and cheese added a little more yummy to our table. BTW....two cool visitors (Chicago and Dallas) shared some fried chicken with us. We topped it off with a Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade and a slice of Bacon Butterscotch cake sealed the deal. The helpings were plentiful. So much that we had to go boxes.

Delicious food? Check Check Check!

We will be having the peach cobbler on our next trip. Our neighbors graciously allowed us to capture that thing of beauty.

Overall great. I sat down to a place setting that had multiple pieces of hair on it. Our table upon arrival had to be re-washed because hair was on the wood table. Later, plates arrived for Peach cobbler and again, there was hair on two plates. Hair nets may be in order.

I knew I wanted to try this place as I was planning my birthday weekend in south beach and I'm glad I did! I made a reservation for 9:30, arrived at 9:15 and we were seated immediately and moments later our waiter came over and described the menu and what they were known for which was their fried chicken and they didn't disappoint. The Buttermilk Biscuits was amazing the Chicken n Waffles was absolutely delicious and they give you a lot enough to share a plate. Although the food was amazing the service wasn't the best, we never saw our waiter again after he took our order and we had to ask someone else to get our check so we can leave after we've been waiting for 10 minutes. But I would still recommend this place!

To start our waitress Natalia was so on point with everything. She was very knowledgeable of the menu and even made suggestions. The food was absolutely amazing. I think my adjectives here are very limited. I'm from DC and the food there is great, but I would literally fly back to Miami just to go to Yardbird Southern and fly back within the same day. NO JOKE!😳
