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.

    Some little hiccups with menu posted on open table and what the restaurant in house menu actually had. Server was incredibly apologetic and made suggestions in place of what we originally were hoping for. Took $ off of our bill without us asking. We loved everything we ate and would go back for sure

    It was delicious! The staff was also great. We had tickets to a play at TPAC and advised them what time we needed to complete the meal, and they were very prompt with their service. Have always loved Deacons, and only regret they aren't open for lunch anymore!

    We visited prior to a TPAC show. The service was excellent, atmosphere perfect, our food was very good. The short walk to TPAC made it the perfect evening.

    Everyone in our group got the filet and the seasoning was amazing and all steaks were cooked to perfection. The sides were delicious but servings were smaller than anticipated. Only negative is no valet or parking available. We were there on a Sunday night, so the noise was not a problem, but I see that being an issue on a busy night.

    Absolutely love the place, but three undercooked steaks that had to go back to the grill. Second visit in a row. Including a medium well that was served rare.

    Cool atmosphere but overpriced! Small shrimp appetizer is $23 and 6 ounce filet is $54! The filet was very good but salty. The short braised beef (one of their best menu items) was sort of dry. Service was fair.

    Went for a steak, got the NY stripe and filet mignon, both were cooked a bit incorrectly. Had to actually send stripe back to be fixed. Waitress was very nice and helpful, and gave us nice recommendations for the city. The sides we ordered were fine but for the price we paid it really just seemed like poor value.

    Located sin the mist of clubs, bars and restaurants in downtown Nashville. Location was easy to fin and inside was well appointed. Seated within a few minutes of arrival. Service was a little slow but given the labor shortage not bad. Food was delicious and was well presented. Cornbread was to 'out of this world" good. Saved some for desert. We weren't disappointed at this restaurant! Definitely will return!

    The host/hostess made a mistake and sat someone else for our reservation. After waiting 30 minutes we were finally seated. They did not own the mistake or attempt to correct it. Other than that the food was great and waiter did a great job as well.

    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!!
