Deacon's New South

$31 to $50
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.

Very loud, hard to have a conversation especially if someone was moving chairs under table or out from table. Food was ok. The mashed potatoes were the best! Carrots would not order again. Disappointed in flourless cake, it was dry & cold. Waitress was friendly.

Outstanding service and our meal was perfect! Our waitress was so attentive, kind and knowledgeable. We asked for a quiet spot because we were having a date night. The bar area looked fun also and didn’t seem too loud. We will definitely return. It was super close to hotel noelle so it was very convenient if you are staying there.

Experience was ok but the steaks were pretty bad cuts. And steak was the reason we came. Stringy and tough pieces that were over or undercooked. Broccolini tasted like plain Char like burnt broccoli. And there are still no new cocktails. Probably the last time coming but wish the best for improvement.

We found Deacon’s in an article Nashville Magazine. It came highly recommended so we thought we’d give it a try.

We had a reservation and were seated right away. The hostess tried to seat us in a very undesirable table. We asked for an alternative which she did without protest since it wasn’t busy.

Our server was great and the ambiance was nice. We ordered a porterhouse for two as that’s our preferred alternative when dining at a nice steakhouse. For sides, we had broccolini & potatoes.

The sides were excellent and portioned for two. As for the steak? It was just OK. It was cooked properly but just wasn’t as flavorful or as tender as what we’d expect at a restaurant of this caliber. It wasn’t anything we couldn’t have duplicated in our backyard after stopping at the grocery.

For desert, we shared a piece of cheesecake which was fine but not noteworthy.

There was no part of this experience that wasn’t acceptable. But when you pay top dollar at a restaurant you hope for a dining experience that matches the price paid. That threshold was not met at Deacon’s.

Service great. Waygu Steak and frites- steak cool and tough. Broccolini was cold, not warm, but cold. Cornbread excellent. Braised beef good and Cajun noodles good. Added 2 small scallops for $16. Not worth the money.

Fantastic! Service, front desk was friendly and server, Ryan, was excellent! Cornbread was the best I’ve ever had, and I’m from Kentucky! Brussels sprouts-amazing with Granny Smiths! Filet cooked perfectly at rare plus; bone in ribeye superb per husband; flourless chocolate cake was so good! Highly recommend and we’ll be back!

We arrived early and were seated promptly by the door. They quickly moved us at our request. The server was curt and every time we asked a question he was agitated and sarcastic. He said there had been changes and some of the items were not what as described on the menu. My steak was cold, salad was drenched in either dressing or water !
We were celebrating our friends birthday. When asked about coffee. He said we have 5 coffee shops around us. He brought it out with fat free milk, another sever said we do t use cream it spoils too quickly!!!!!
We won’t recommend or be back. So many other great restaurants to choose from! I hope our server and everyone that served our table find another job.

This is one of the most under rated restaurants in Nashville. The sides are some of the best I have ever had anywhere. Cool atmosphere. I love the Southern, and Kayne Prime, but I would put Deacon's right up there.

Deacon's is my favorite steak house in Nashville. Service & food are amazing. Value for the $ is the best in town. Only small knock is the wine list is good, not great. Typically the year listed is not available, small knock...
