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

Food, service and atmosphere all were outstanding. We had mashed cauliflower, brisket on biscuit, grilled romain salad and the fried chicken. All were exemplary. Highly recommend.

I'm a southerner and you can't get away with limp skin, over salted, greasy chicken (I'm looking at you KFC). So to find a bird that might have been made by my grandmother in her cast iron skillet is a feat. Yardbird is it. Not a speck of grease as I ate my chicken the way you should, with your... More

This place was extremely crowded and our reservation was not until 10pm. However it was worth it. I would definitely recommend making a reservation. Also parking is practically nonexistent.

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.
