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.

Yardbird Southern Table & Bar Ratings and Reviews
Our second visit to this location. A must stop when in Miami. As always, service is on point. Food is wonderful. The chicken and waffles and watermelon is a favorite and perfect. A great dish for sharing which makes a nice cozy date.
The biscuits are dense and delicious.
The bourbon and whiskey selection is exceptional.
Happy we found this place. It is sad we do not live in Miami, this would be a regular stop for us.
Will searching for our wedding venue in Miami, we stopped for lunch... the open table app was great... user friendly... we walked right up and was assisted with our table.. the food was amazing as well as the drinks..we met some amazingly friendly people the vibe was great... highly recommend
Always outstanding! I’ve recommended Yardbird often to friends from out of town and they all love it as much as we do! The bar is spectacular, the food always great, and the service, including the managers, are attentive and very helpful. Yardbird is s “can’t miss”!
I can't thank the staff enough this visit (I eat here on every Miami visit) for graciously accommodating my ever-changing party size after I arrived. Even as my "group" changed from three to one to six, they miraculously found a proper table at each turn in spite of it being a very busy evening. And the food was great as always.
Restaurant was packed on a Tuesday night, but it was Art Basel week too. Got us our table a few minutes earlier than the reservation (be sure to make a reservation). Food was very good and the service was attentive. I was not blown away overall, but it's certainly a place I would return to when in the area if I don't want a surprise.
The bar staff was very friendly and energetic. We had a few cocktails while waiting for our table and everything was great. Once seated our server Guillermo was fantastic! He is very personable, knowledgeable, and professional. He and his server assistant were more than outstanding. The food was ok. Nothing exceptional. We've been a couple of times throughout the years and haven't been wowed. Great service will bring us back to give it another try.
I was quite looking forward to visiting Yardbird because I have heard such rave reviews. However, I must say I was a bit disappointed. I ordered the chicken and waffles, which is one of the most popular dishes, but I found it lacking flavor. I did not find anything special about it and would not order it upon my return.
I love chicken and waffles . Rosco's chicken and waffles was one of my top 3 if not # 1 place to eat chicken and waffles in the US. As of right now that spot was made vacant and claimed by Yard Bird. The BLT fried green tomatoes we're excellent. It could have used a little less of the cheese element but none the less it was outstanding. I loved the burnt ends and ending with the peach cobbler made my night. Definitely one of the better cobblers I've had , more on the tart side but hell that's how it should be. We had an outstanding time and our server Andy was such a cool dude it made the night that more pleasurable. I'd definitely can't wait to visit again.
Ok fried chicken but excellent side dishes. Loved the decor and ambience. Bartender was friendly and helpful but could tip the bottle a bit more on the $14 lemonade cocktail. Server was hurried and abrupt with us. Would definitely go back again. Please consider awarding open table pts when reserving through your site.
This is the upteenth time I have been there since the first week of their opening. All is pretty much the same, however, the wait staff is not as good as it once was. How do I say this not as enthusiastic as it once was. Now, no conversation, not familiar with food, and lets move you along so we can turn the table. I understand that the company has grown and the business has as well. Just expected more this time no so much. Food good, not great, service impartial just another table.
The staff was welcoming and quick to take care of us. The food was amazing, we had the shrimp and grits and the short ribs. The short rib turned out to be undercooked and the staff and manager noticed right away and wanted to correct it and comped the meal. They really cared about getting it right and you felt it. We returned a second night because we wanted to try the fried chicken and the peach cobbler and we were so happy we did. my daughter said she wanted to shrink the restaurant and bring it back to Sarasota in her pocket so we could eat there all the time. We were impressed all around.
We enjoyed an early brunch on Sunday morning. Our waiter was very well informed and helpful with the various items on the menu. My wife was so excited about the Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade - she was sending me photos of the drink leading up to our trip. And, she was not disappointed. Best Bloody Mary in Miami!!
After having been to the Yardbird in Las Vegas, I was very much looking forward to this visit in South Beach. It did not disappoint! Food, service, and ambiance were top notch! Keep up the good work and I will follow you anywhere! Who knows...maybe I can get to Singapore for some Yardbird!!
Server forgot our multiple requests for extra lime, she remembered it herself yet never brought them. Food arrived minutes after ordering - far too fast, especially since we hadn’t even opened the bottle of wine we ordered. Pesto ordered on the side arrived on the dish instead. She was friendly but didn’t seem to care about our not unreasonable requests. That said she did remember my “princess” of a husband’s request for a side of ice for his rose wine.
Good place with great relaxed atmosphere but it felt like they’re trying to turn over tables far too fast. Service lacks at this price point.
