Came here after seeing it featured on Anthony Bourdain. We ordered the Mac n Cheese, sweet corn bread and the brisket sliders. It was all very tasty, especially the Mac n cheese. However, I expected much more from the brisket sliders. I didn't really like the taste of the sauce, but they were good. I would've liked to order the... More

If you want a great meal when you are in the Miami Beach area forget any advice your doctor ever gave you about a healthy diet and head for Yardbird. This was my second time and both very enjoyable. Last night we had the good fortune to sit with Wesley who is a very amiable person and a real professional.... More

This South Beach Florida establishment is the premier spot for traditional southern fare: fried chicken with waffles and watermelon, shrimp and grits, fried green tomatoes, #1 rated mac and cheese in the world, bourbon drinks, and Bloody Mary in a moonshine jar with a bacon crisp stirrer. The best southern place I've ever eaten! Reservations a MUST, valet parking, in... More

We ate here during the Basel art fair week. From appetizers through dessert, every dish was fantastic!! While it is "comfort" food, it is clean and fresh so I would describe it perhaps more as hearty than heavy. Also, there are lighter options. I got the charred okra, which was amazing! The entire wait staff was so nice and pleasant... More

This restaurant has excellent Southern comfort food and a fun, hip atmosphere. They are known for their fried chicken, so we couldn't resist. It didn't disappoint. It was definitely worth the extra calories to enjoy this delicious chicken with the perfect crunch, a bit of a peppery flavoring and moist chicken. Hard to believe but it wasn't greasy tasting. We...

Very southern in the heavy flavors but charming service to make up for it. Great bourbon cocktails and chicken waffles are quite good

My family and I finally got to Miami to try Yard Bird, from the absolutely stunning and impeccable service from the onset to the piping hot biscuits and the show stopping deviled eggs, as if we thought we had reached Nirvana, out came the fried chicken. Yard Bird is a must.

Great vibe and house music. Ordered fried chicken (signature dish), roasted cauliflower, biscuits (signature dish) and grits. Grits were delivered cold, chicken so-so. Took waiter 20 minutes to bring drinks. Biscuits and cauliflower were great. Too bad I wasn't looking forward to losing weight this evening.

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.
