Steakhouse
Billed as a modern Southern steakhouse, Deacon’s New South will feature a prominent dry-aging room and an exposed kitchen setting with a wood fire grill, as well as two bars, an eclectic lounge and a private area that can be reserved for large parties. Though it was built in the 1950s, the building’s art-deco influences — such as brass and copper details and bold architectural patterns — will be incorporated into the sleek, industrial design of Deacon’s.

    This is a steakhouse with the purported largest dry aged steak stock in the Southeast United States. My filet was perfectly cooked and absolutely delicious. Ask for a seat in front of the grill and you can watch your cut being prepared, Brussels Sprouts had great flavor but the sauce made them a little soggy. Potatoes Aligot - think twice baked potato ON STEROIDS (if by steroids you mean cheesy goodness)! Add to that good wine and whiskey at reasonable prices. I strongly recommend putting some Deacon’s New South in your mouth. You’re welcome.

    From the drinks to the dessert, we had an excellent meal. William was a fantastic server and made a great wine recommendation too. We had the 9 Oz filet with the horseradish sauce, potatoes aligot, and the grilled oyster mushrooms. We also had the shrimp appetizer and the apple oatmeal crumble for dessert along with a ruby port. Delicious, excellent service, great decor, fun ambience. I highly recommend.

    My husband and I sat at the bar and had great service from Austin. He helped pick out wine and was knowledgeable about the menu. I appreciated that most of the menu was gluten free since I have a gluten allergy.

    We were sitting facing the meat near the elevators, and it was perfect for a business dinner. It was quiet enough to have a conversation, but had enough of an ambiance to where there were no awkward moments when there wasn’t as much conversation. Only complaint is that the heat was cranking so it was quite warm.

    Great server but we split a porterhouse which they sliced nicely but it was overbooked for sure. I also asked for a specific table but they said it was taken for a larger party but when I left after dinner no one had sat at it while I was there.

    Mediocre. Menu should have more side and entree options. Shrimp is an option for your steak, but not as an entree. No baked potatoes as a side.

    Everything about our experience was wonderful. I’m sorry I don’t remember our waiters name but he was excellent. Great asset to the restaurant. Food was a bit pricey but delicious and convenient to our hotel and Ryman auditorium where we were attending a concert. Easy walking distance. Highly recommend for nice dinner.

    Fantastic family dinner while in town for a football game. Our waitress was outstanding! She made perfect food and drink recommendations and was wonderfully attentive and engaged. Best old fashioned, with Angel’s Envy, that I’ve had. We had a variety of entrees, some steaks, chicken and the short rib Raghu. Cornbread, hush puppies and the shareable sides were excellent with the Brussels sprouts being the best. We arrived a bit early for our reservation, but we’re able to be seated quickly. Overall lovely meal-will come back again!

    Had dinner before the show. Food was passable but not memorable. Steak frites was charred. Milk braised pork chop was decent. Potatoes Aligiote was the best thing of the meal. Ordered the biscuits and they were literally hardtack. Not sure what was going on because saw more than a few plates with what looked like light fluffy biscuits travel by our table. Service tried to tell us that all biscuits were prepared at once early in the day???? Will probably look for other options next time. Disappointing.

    Southern cuisine attracted me to this restaurant and I was excited to try it out. The space is laid out very interesting, but we were given a table in sort of a main pathway, so it was distracting. The year of the wine we ordered was not the year that was actually available and in addition, the wine label was missing. The food was creative and the presentation was lovely. The taste was interesting. I will try this again sometime because I think perhaps the experience would be different with a different table.

    We need to give it another try. Our first visit in 2021 was outstanding. Our visit this week (2022) was not quite as good (and the prices are still astronomical). So either the first visit was a fluke, or this one was. We are hoping that it's usually outstanding and this meal was the exception.

    The food and drinks were sub-par for a normal steak house-- but for a high-dollar place like this, it was not good at all. I had a party of 6 and none of us will be back. The service, however, was excellent.

    Came here for our anniversary dinner - in town for a concert - decided to visit Deacons. Kind of disappointed where they sat us, right by the front door where we got hit with cold air each time customers came in. Took about 10 mins for our server (who was awesome) to show up and take our drink order. Bummed an anniversary dessert didn’t come to the table and or a GM to see how our meal was. When it comes to fine dining and steak houses, these are very important, especially when spending a few hundred dollars for two people in a special occasion.
