Finding relief from the high glamour scene of South Beach, Yardbird delivers on southern comfort food with the flash of flannel instead of silk. Shrimp and grits and fried chicken are fantastic and we had some great key lime pie, not overly sweet. Been to Miami twice, gone to Yardbird twice. Will be back.

We popped in for an early dinner having seen good reviews. They weren't wrong, incredible chicken and the watermelon/waffle combo worked really well even if we weren't sure about it. Side of mac cheese was delicious even though we knew how calorific it was. The Old Fashioneds were also excellent and the service was just as good.

As soon as I left the airport I made my way down here to have a solo brunch to see what the fuss is about. I ordered Mimosas to get started and the bartender made several recommendations about the items on the menu. Didn't feel rushed and it was a nice vibe inside. I went with the chicken biscuits which... More

Food was delicious! It is meant to all be shared. Cornbread, deviled eggs, fried chicken were all amazing. The servers were excellent.

If you like chicken, you will love yardbird. The only reason that I gave it a 4 instead of 5 is that I am not a fan of wings and legs. I'm a breast man. However, the food and service is great and the place is always jammed with loyal repeaters

It wasn't bad....devil eggs I found to be alittle salty for my tastes. Caesar salad was good..had 2 plates of that. Chicken on a waffle was good but not the best I've had....chicken was not dry and the waffle served with syrup was a nice touch... the issue is I don't think the plate merits the 36$ price. Cocktails and... More

Description
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 Appetit'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.
