If you're a lover of southern comfort food, rustic farm vibes, great ingredients, and good bourbon - Yardbird Southern Table & Bar should be a bucket list restaurant for you.
Crispy Chicken Biscuits with Pepper Jelly
Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade
Phil and I went during a staycation weekend. I had been there twice before so my taste buds were READY. Reservations are a must on the weekend. Customer service is pretty good. The menu may not be extensive but I'm pretty sure if you like southern dishes or salads with a twist, you'll find something.
Phil ordered Deviled Eggs, I ordered the Crispy Chicken Biscuits served with pepper jelly, and we shared the infamous Chicken 'N' Watermelon 'N' Waffles - honey hot sauce, chilled spiced watermelon Vermont sharp cheddar cheese waffle, and bourbon maple syrup.
Everything was flavorful, served fresh, and went very well with the signature Blackberry Bourbon Lemonade. The spiced watermelon was definitely a fun experience for our mouths and complimented the cheese waffle and bourbon maple syrup which I did not think was going to mesh well. The combination doesn't even sound right. But I promise you it's worth it.
If you don't like bourbon, they have whiskey, beer, wine, cocktails, etc. There is both indoor and outdoor seating. Street parking is available but I suggest you pick one of the parking lots in walking distance unless you don't mind adding time on parking apps. Besides Miami, you can visit a Yardbird in Los Angeles, Las Vegas or Singapore.

So if you didn't figure it out by now, I really really like Yarbird Southern Table & Bar. Tasty food, good ambiance, great food and drink selection, and you're sure to leave with a full stomach. If you're ever in the same city as one I suggest you make your way over. If you've experienced it already, let me low in the comments below.
