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.

Our server took us to the backside of the restaurant. In the winter time it’s extremely cold in that area and it made the experience a lot less enjoyable because we were freezing the entire time. Try to avoid getting a table in the back

Wonderful - highly recommended. Excellent food, excellent service, tasteful and stylish ambiance. Especially enjoyed the gluten free fried chicken, pencil corn grits, and Yukon pureed potatoes.

We went to celebrate our elopement earlier in the day, the host and our server Matthew were wonderful offering many well wishes and congratulations. The food was outstanding as was the service. We had an excellent meal! Compliments to the chef, (sorry I cannot recall his name). Our steaks, a 20oz bone in rib-eye and a porterhouse that we shared between 4 adults were cooked perfectly. The Fried Broccolini was a big hit, the Crispy Brussel Sprouts were a perfect mix of sweet and savory and the Mac & Cheese was just plain delicious! Even Josh from the bar (I think that’s the right name, I did have a drink or two) came over and was sure to offer congrats and best wishes. It really was a great evening, we had a wonderful time! We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in Nashville!!

I had made a reservation and we were taken to literally the back corner room of the restaurant. There were actually extra chairs in the room and a pile of crap in front of one of the doors. A large party of girls was eventually seated in the room with us. I would not want this table again. Our server told us she was actually the bartender for the upstairs bar we walked through to get to this room. She was great but again I felt weird bc I had a reservation and it was like they had no idea what to do with us. I would like to go there again because the food is really good but I will not settle for the table we had this time.

Take plenty of cash. Fine dining prices in a casual restaurant. Wine list below average. Steaks are fine, truly. But 8oz filets for $50 in a place without a table cloth? I’m ok with everything a la carte, and while a pleasant restaurant with quality food and good service is welcome, $315 for 2 plus tip simply seemed a bit high for this place. Beware- no valet parking. You will walk a bit to the restaurant from a parking garage.

Staff was friendly. They were a bit busy so the service a slower than we would have liked. They were accommodating even though we were late for our reservation. I do recommend the grilled oysters and the shrimp appetizer. The Mac and cheese left a little to be desired. My husband liked the steak he got.

drinks were good, sides and appetizers were pretty good as well. Steaks- a big no, not happy there. for what we paid, they should have been perfect. Instead it seemed they rushed the cook them and they were over done, even though they were half capacity.

Chicken was fried nicely but bland. Needed some sauce. Our apps were good. It was kind of cold in restaurant as front door stayed open quite a bit. Filet was good, very little patoto with it so value was not the best.

Deacon's was great for the 5 of us on Christmas Eve. From cocktails through entrees, we found interesting options and our server described the menu well. It's hard to make a roux as dark and rich as their gumbo has; don't miss it! The fried chicken was crispy then juicy, the pork shank was fabulous, and the steaks were excellent as hoped.

New to the area and was searching for somewhere nice to take my boyfriend for his birthday. Deacon's New South was a perfect choice. Everything about this restaurant was incredible. The wine, steak, and service were amazing. I cannot think of one thing that I would change about our experience. We have an anniversary coming up soon and are planning to come back to celebrate.

So glad we stopped here while in Nashville. Worth the money for excellent food and service. We splurged on the short rib appetizer but it was not as good as we hoped. Still better than most, but had a slightly burnt aftertaste. But our entrees were outstanding and the sides were delicious too. Loved how they provided a large side portion that could be shared. Plenty of food and the staff was very knowledgeable, engaging and attentive. Would highly recommend and hope to be back when in town.
