Food was outstanding. Service couldn't have been better. We had a large group and they were very attentive. Chicken, ribs, mac n cheese, corn bread, veggies, dessert - I cannot recommend enough.

My husband and I had the opportunity to visit this restaurant while on vacation. It came highly recommended from the hotel staff and did not dissapoint! We were greeted with the kindest host and hostess who showed us to a table in the bar area. We didn't have a reservation and it was quite crowded so we sat at a... More

Yardbird's service is outstanding. I never had to ask for anything. They anticipated my every need. Our server, Rafael, was friendly and delightful. The food is just as good as the service. The chicken and waffles was so delicious. Possibly the best I've ever had. Every time I'm in Miami I will definitely pay a visit to Yardbird.

The place is nice as you can eat outside. But the food is quite common and the portions are American size. I would not recommand it for European People.

A real treat for our lunch. I hadn't realised Southern food was so enjoyable you might say Southern Comfort if it hadn't been said before! We shared dishes thank goodness because I wouldn't have wanted to miss out. The service was first class; the food first class and the ambience perfect.

We went here for lunch and it was excellent service, delicious food, fantastic experience ..... I could go on. We tried to go back on two separate occasions and it was full! Would return in a flash if we return to Miami.

Sure, the food is good. The food is really good...but you're not eating foie gras at a Michelin star rated restaurant; you're eating fried chicken and gastropub-esk food. Anyone can make amazing food if they're not subject to acceptable prices but for 3 people to have chicken and waffles and split an appetizer? Naw, that can only be tolerated in... More

We could only get a 5:15 reservation because for the weekend the restaurant books weeks in advance. It was worth going early. The chicken was superb. Crisp and succulent. My husband said it was the best chicken he ever had. The biscuits were probably the best I ever had. And, we are still talking about the amazing Caesar salad. Good-sized... More

We got there and were seated rather quickly after being told it would be a 30 min wait for dinner. The lighting was pretty dim outside where we were seated. Ordered appetizers of deviled eggs and bone marrow, both absolutely delicious and a must. We had gone there specifically for the fried chicken after rave reviews. All the food was... More

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.
