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.

    Snapper was light and delicious, not fishy at all. Sauces complimented well, dry aged steaks were done to perfection. Not the cheapest dinner but don’t mind paying for a good meal and this was a good meal!!

    My husband and I came in on a Tuesday night for my birthday and had a blast! I’ll do the food first, then we can talk about our server. We got the cornbread for the table and OH MY GOSH it is incredible. We both ordered steak and scallops, and Brussel sprouts for a side. The steaks were excellent, the scallops I didn’t care for (over cooked and wayyyy too salty), and the brussels were great as well. We got crème brûlée for dessert and it was delicious. The food was great but our server, Kat, really made it an excellent experience. She was so kind and helpful with the menu. She really went above and beyond to make sure my birthday dinner was special. She even put a candle in my crème brûlée, it was great! Thank you Kat!

    It’s a beautiful modern-industrial restaurant, but the service and food was lacking. The service was fine, but not what you’d expect from a high-end restaurant. The food left much to be desired. The only thing we enjoyed was the fried green tomatoes (they were great!). The blue cheese biscuits first came out cold and chewy in the middle, and when they brought us a new batch they were burnt and still chewy. They definitely sacrified texture by adding blue cheesw. The Nashville “hot” chicken was mediocre at best. It was hard as a rock, dry and the sauce was vinegary, tangy and tomato-forward and not even mildly spicy (and usually medium spice is too hot for me). Don’t come here for the fried chicken—you’re better off finding a greasy dive bar or fried chicken spot (Prince’s or Monell’s) for great fried chicken.

    We had a delicious meal and experience at Deacons! If you’re looking for a cool atmosphere and a fantastic steak, this is it. Brussels sprouts and potato purée were perfect sides with our steaks! Will certainly come again when visiting Nashville.

    For our inaugural visit to Nashville, we wanted to treat ourselves to a nice dinner, and oh how we did! Deacon’s New South came recommended by a friend that lives in Nashville, so we knew it would be good. The restaurant was beautiful; nicely decorated but not stuffy. We were lucky enough to sit near the kitchen and beef cooler, so we got an up close and personal view! Our waitress was beyond lovely; we could have talked all night to her. Our meals consisted of a NY strip, ribeye, crawfish noodles and red snapper. To say the steaks were delicious would be an insult. My 12yo son ate his entire 14 ounce steak and wants to go back again! The noodles were fresh and made locally and the red snapper was exceptional. We finished off dinner with locally made ice cream and a rhubarb crumble in a hot skillet. We all left full and said it was a too restaurant of all time. If you find yourself in Nashville, make reservations here!!

    Amazing ambiance. The steak was the best I’ve ever had— and we’re foodies. So that’s saying a lot. The Mac N Cheese was phenomenal. And the fries were delicious. The ketchup and other side sauces were made from scratch. It was our anniversary and the waitress, Abbie, got us a complimentary champagne toast. Abbie was friendly and personable. Loved her! Best dining experience in a long time.

    The pork shank we had months ago was better than their current pork chop on the menu. It was quite tough/bit over cooked but also had chewy fat. Grits were mediocre. The steak frites and chocolate torte dessert were fantastic!! Service was very subpar though… not sure if our server was new and frazzled or just chose to neglect us and give us a hard time for using a gift card but whatever! So overall very mediocre experience…. you can go elsewhere for more consistent primo food and service!!

    Hush now and melty steak. With a 6pm reservation we arrived and immediately were seated overlooking the open kitchen. Enjoyed some excellent hushpuppies to start based on the servers recommendation. A nice bottle of wine was good but overpriced. We all had filets and I must attest that it was done perfectly and the flavor was wonderful. We shared some sprouts, mash potatoes and enjoyed every bite. As we watched a tomahawk steak hit the grill we really should have just split one for our entire table. Next time for sure.

    My wife had pork chop and half way through it she couldn’t cut it with a knife as it was burned on one side. We mentioned it to the waitress who offered to have another one prepared, but we didn’t accept as we were running out of time to make a show. I had the chicken and I was disappointed with the sauce/seasoning. I’m not sure what it was or even what I expected, but I didn’t care for it. The cornbread was outstanding, the dessert was delicious and the waitress (Adrian, I believe) was great. The waitress informed us when she gave us the check that the charge for the pork chop had been removed. That helped some, but we probably won’t return. Sorry.

    The food was just okay, and for the price, I expected better. Two people in my party ordered beef cooked medium, and both were served very rare (cool and red in the middle). My pork chop was okay, a little tough, but not dry. I’m not sure the combination of the molasses and peanuts with cilantro made a lot of sense, especially served with stone-ground grits. Everyone loved the muscles appetizer. The wine was great, and the Deacon’s martini was wonderful (I ordered 2!) Our server was very nice also. It was just an okay meal. I might go back for a lunch service, but not dinner again.

    The bar selection of bourbon and the bartenders were outstanding. The food was moderate to fair at best. The crawfish hush puppies did not have any flavor. The snapper special was ok but a bit bland. The crispy potato cake side was flavorless and in desperate need of some salt. Crème brûlée was not set completely and the custard needed more vanilla. Overall for the price of the food, I was not happy with the quality.

    We were celebrating our Anniversary dinner with our parents and we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Deacons. I was nervous because I picked this place based on reviews and had never dined here before so I hoped everyone would enjoy it. Our server Adrian was amazing!! So knowledgeable about every menu item and every item she recommended was wonderful. They all order steaks and I had the braised beef with scallops and risotto, everything was delicious and the steaks were so huge that my husband couldn’t finish his ( a first lol). We had mussels and crawfish hush puppies for appetizers also very good as well as our sides of grilled romaine and Brussels sprouts. Our wonderful server Adrian surprised us with a decadent chocolate cake dessert and glasses of sparkling wine for all of to celebrate the occasion. All in all the food was very good and it was so nice to have such excellent service, which lately has been hard to find. We will definitely eat here again when in town and please keep this server at all costs because she is a gem!!!
