Rotisserie Chicken
Yardbird is our rotisserie chicken restaurant upstairs above The Dirty Onion. Our menu is small but our flavours are big. Ok, we do chicken, but our chicken is famous!

Our local free-to-roam chicken is marinated for 24 hours in lemon, buttermilk, and paprika. It is then dry-rubbed, cooked and blast-chilled to keep it juicy and finally roasted on the spit. Ribs and wings are also available, as are a choice of sides and homemade desserts. Hungry yet?

We prepare all our food in-house and service is fast!

This is a booking for Yardbird the restaurant, The Dirty Onion bar operates on a first come first serve basis.

    Winner Winner Chicken Dinner! Chicken for sure! Sweet potato fries as well. Ribs and wings could have had a bit more char on them, everything was amazing but no ribs or wings for me next time, the chicken was the star of the show.

    Started out having a wonderful time, service was a bit slow but the food was great and it really gave me the feeling of being home ( I’m from North America ). Couldn’t stop saying how I’d be coming here all the time as it was great. Went to pay the bill and as I was walking out the servers started mocking me and my accent. Didn’t even wait until I was out of earshot. Totally ruined the experience and I would have a hard time ever going back to this establishment again after this. Unfortunate as I liked the food and atmosphere a lot.

    Food was very nice and drinks were quick and easy to get. Overall the experience was going very good until a waitress came to our table and asked us to keep the noise down. We were on a stag do, there was 7 of us and 1 person talks loudly, but it’s a bar. We weren’t drunk or rowdy. There was absolutely no need to tell us to be quiet. As soon as this happened we decided to leave. Likely would have spent the rest of the day & night there but after we felt unwelcome.

    If you like Rotisserie chicken then this is paradise. Chicken is superbly cooked, falls off the bone. My wife absolutely loved the coleslaw 10/10. Chips were fine, although chicken gravy is normally drinkable, wasn’t just as good as normal. Overall excellent value for money and a really enjoyable meal!

    The ladies at Yardbird were lovely - I think they could’ve done with one more member of staff on to help with seating guests or taking payment. They were rushed off their feet but made sure all the tables were clean and ready for guests. The food was tasty and hot, and not a long wait. I think the cocktail menu could have been larger as only three cocktails listed, and a larger drinks menu would tempt people to stay in longer to drink and/or have desserts too. The music and atmosphere was great, and the prices weren’t bad too! We are glad we came across Yardbird during our stay in Belfast.

    Our favourite place to eat at the moment. The Bird n Booze is still good value for money even though the price has recently increased. Beth is an excellent ‘front of house’ employee and has always made us feel valued as customers. Top notch.

    Great food, well priced, hard working lovely staff, good experience all round. Only criticism I have relates to the seating, as in the chairs, not comfortable at all. Comfort factor important to me, maybe not to others, regardless, good place to check out. Lovely bar downstairs too with a great fire!

    Wasn't sure about eating here as menu seemed limited. Ordered a whole chicken between 2 with avacado salad and fries. Chicken much smaller than we thought it would be but really tasty with buffalo dip. Chips good taste and portion size. Salad litterly lettuce and few slices of avocado and dressing - over priced but tasty enough. Wine menu limited - 3 white wines to choose from. Got a bottle just over £30. Although chicken was quite small meal was adequate and tasty. Would like to try the ribs next time.
