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.

WAY OVER PRICED & HORRIBLE SERVICE ~ need I say more ~ the only positive thing I can say is for the location, a decent concept and build out, however all the metal and glass makes for a very noisy atmosphere, no bar, no hospitable service, rush you in and rush you out, rude, disrespectful, and pretentious. If you want... More

It will be difficult to eat Fried Chicken again anywhere else. Really, the combinations of food and mixed drinks are a bit unusual, but the fare is of first rate quality and incredibly delicious. Try the Fried Chicken, Waffles and Watermelon.

This was a great place for brunch. The chicken and waffles were yummy and the maple bacon donuts were to die for! Service was also nice and friendly. It is just a tad bit pricey. I would book ahead just to be safe.

Thank guan66

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.
