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.

Awful, awful, awful. Words could never express the experience we had. Service - terrible. Management - worse. Took 45 minutes to get a drink. Received a salad before a drink. Filet - COLD...still charged for it all. Paid $60 for COLD FOOD!!! Worst dining experience of my life!!!!

Austin & the cute blond bartender helping him tend bar were so friendly, super on top of it, & just great! Food/ambiance/drinks/building/decor/etc. we’re amazing! The only complaint I would have is I think most of the menu is a bit overpriced. Otherwise, it’s fabulous!

Very good quality and tasty food. Professional staff. Loved the open kitchen concept. Delicious cocktails. We had oysters, fish and ribeye and few sides. Everything was perfect. Only thing they need is a little bit more music since they are in the heart of music city. Music in the background was hard to hear from everyone talking. Other than that one of the best restaurants i ever been in nashville.

The dry aged ribeye was tasty. The oysters nd shrimp appetizers were phenomenal. Our lobster was significantly over cooked amd mac n cheese was cold amd just ok after it was warmed up. It was nice that they had a military discount. It was very pricey.

Took clients. Excellent steak! We were disappointed to hear many items not available, including the hamburger. The waitress said something about global supply chain issues blah blah blah but a hamburger? Surely, in America they could have found a decent beef supplier, no? Anyway the steak and all the sides were delicious. Would absolutely go again if ever in Nashville.

This was an excellent restaurant choice and centrally located. The room has a retro style and beautiful bar. Drinks came quickly. Our server Ashley ( I believe). was excellent, knew all the dishes well. The scallops cooked perfectly with nice flavor. The steaks were cooked correctly and tasty. I had a jambalaya type dish which was too large but good. Nice wine choice, lots of appetizers and good desserts. Would return. Like all restaurants in Nashville things are oversalted for my taste, ask for less salt if you are sensitive to this.

With all the hype, I expected a better experience for the money. Nothing was terrible, just not up to the standards of what we are looking for in a fine dining experience. The two things that stood out the most were the lackluster beet salad and the apathetic waiter.

We split the large bone in Ribeye. It was very tough. $100 for a steak that was tough as shoe leather. Sams Club steaks are better quality. Will not go back.

In house dry age beef, what more can I say?!? Our service was on point, water and drinks never empty. Food timing right on. Great service with that perfect balance between knowing your being taken care of but with out any unnecessary overdone snobbery. Very approachable for nearly any palette but obviously the food staff puts a lot of thought in the menu and offerings, plating was beautiful a delicious. Think you’re a foodie, eat here, just hungry, eat here.

We were in town for a concert and made reservations for 4:30 so we would have plenty of time to make our 7:00 concert. We were there 1 1/2 hours before our food was served. We got to the concert at 6:56. The food was absolutely delicious but it was very slow.

Appetizer portions were small and overpriced for what is was. Main course came cold and waiter never came back to check on us. Side dish of their heirloom carrots was under seasoned, cold and had a weird aftertaste.

The food and service were excellent. The cocktails were delicious, and the wine list was solid. We were seated immediately on arrival, and our server was attentive throughout our evening. The food was simply terrific, the best meal of our trip. We especially enjoyed the shrimp and oyster purloo. We sat upstairs, and it might have been less of a great experience downstairs where it was very loud near the bar. But our spot was great and we thoroughly enjoyed it.
