Deacon's New South

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.

This was our first visit. We entertained friends before a performance at TPAC. Our friends both had the Harvest Salad with chicken and liked it. I had The Man in Black and although I found it tasty, the temperature was inconsistent throughout the dish. This affected the flavor. I found it tasted better in the warmer spots. I hope that doesn't it was microwaved. My wife had the Crawfish Noodles which were not spicy but did create a need for a Tums in the middle of the night. The restaurant needs more time. The brand is a part of the same company which includes Puckett's. Next time, I will go to Puckett's St Cloud Corner.

We are local and heard good things about the place. Our waiter was great—definitely sold us on the “signature” items. The fried green tomatoes were great, however the piggies in a blanket were not. Food came quick, which was great because we were under a time crunch. But the “hot chicken” wasn’t Nashville hot at all. It was just a whole roasted chicken. The Mac and cheese was so good, probably the best bite of the night. The braised beef was tender, but very heavy with the sauce and grits. For the price, you can definitely get the same quality food somewhere else unfortunately.

I wasn't impressed. Food was very heavily seasoned in a very off-putting way. We didn't finish eating anything on the table. I kept catching myself having to go back to my water to clean the salt and spice off my tongue. I love seasoned food, but it just wasn't balanced or complex. Understanding it's the "new" South, it ventured too far.

I reserved a table a week in advance and still got stuck either at the entrance or at the bar. They allowed a huge party of 6-8 whose table wasn't ready to stand and talk loudly at the edge of our table for 30 minutes, not really at the bar or a table. Didn't really have the atmosphere or the flavor to warrant the bloated downtown Nashille prices.

A very nice restaurant in Nashville. Excellent choice in Steaks, sides, and appetizers. Wait staff was fantastic and fun. They ran out of some steaks we were hoping to have... but it was a busy night. I would recommend this place!

We discovered this place June 2020, a road trip from NYC. We dined here twice that week because the food and ambiance were so good. Visited again when in town and it was just as remembered. You must try the steak and biscuit Appetizer, the reason why Deacon's is on our Favorite list.

Seated on time of reservation, service was outstanding. Acknowledged my birthday and bought out cake with candle after dinner, only disappointment was being charged $13 for apple cake she served. If I had known we had to pay for it I would have ordered something I wanted, not what she bought out to table.

Food was great! Our reservation was at 6:30 and our waiter asked us to order quickly because there were 2 large groups in the restaurant. It took over an hour to get our food but they kept stringing us along by saying "just a few more minutes." Had I known it was going to take SO long for our food to arrive, I would have ordered a salad or appetizer. I was disappointed it took so long for our food to come. We also didn't see our waiter very much because he and most other waitstaff were also taking care of the 2 large groups. If you make reservations I recommend asking if they also have reservations for large groups (15-20 people) and if they do...find someplace else.

Our waitress was quick, efficient, communicative and pleasant. We thoroughly enjoyed her service.
The food, however, left quite a bit to be desired. The new chef is, from what we understand, still learning how to manage his kitchen properly. Our appetizers arrived and were quite good. The fried green tomatoes were actually excellent! Our entrees, however, were absolutely awful. The kitchen quite obviously forgot about our orders as we were a late reservation. Our hot chicken came out COMPLETELY raw. Half of a chicken....raw on the plate. The incredibly expensive steaks we ordered were cold as they were obviously cooked and left to the side at some point. They made an attempt to reheat them to our dismay. The chef came to our table to apologize and offered some sweet treats to make up for the travesty of our meal. The apple spice cake and pumpkin caramel cheesecake were delicious however they need to remove the banana pudding tiramisu from the menu and never attempt to revive it. In the end, our server did everything she could to salvage our meal and experience. I am sure Deacon's has had a wonderful reputation in the past, however, with the current kitchen management, we cannot at all recommend visiting.
