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...

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.

I went for brunch no wait, Everything we had was very good , the fried chicken and waffles were good but not crunchy, very moist chicken. Could have used the crunch on the skin. Biscuits were bomb. Not fresh juice desert looked good but to full to try. I'm sure dinner is really good as well.

On my last visit to Miami, was recommended to visit this place. And I was really awed by the fried chicken with water melon and waffles. Simply the best fried chicken I've had any where across the globe. Efficient and friendly service, a must do if you happen to be in Miami !!

Great new addition nearby south beach. Hip and upscale sort of in dustrial enbiance, a great new offering in SoBe. Gotta have as appetizers the blt sliders if with a small group of people. The 1/2 chicken fried chicken with waffles (36.00) is a must and good to share. We had good weat beer.

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.
