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.

    In a word... Outstanding! The staff, Andrew and Abby, were great. They were attentive and made sure that they explained the menu and answered our questions. As with most restaurants downtown, it's expensive. However, they make up for it in the amount of food we received. You could easily split the entrees (so you could save room for dessert). We were both full and content when we left. We also appreciate the fact that they let you know that the sides are large enough to share. Overall, it was a great experience and I would recommend to anyone looking for an excellent downtown restaurant.

    The biscuits were phenomenal! 2 is definitely enough for 4 people. The rest of the food was pretty good, with some items needing a bit of work. The Cesar salad seemed like it was not made to order… (maybe a batch is made every hour?) There’s some sort of fried crispy leaf on top and it tasted like a soggy, cruciferous leaf; it wasn’t good. The dressing was great though! 1/2 of our steak was overdone, which is a bummer when you’re paying 84$ it. Our server was wonderful and she checked on us frequently. She even asked off the meat temp was to our liking, but I didn’t want to send it back. I would definitely come back!

    Our dinner started out with outstanding service from Matthew. He was extremely knowledgeable about the menu and all of questions and made good suggestions. I ordered the bone in ribeye with roasted bone marrow. The steak was a perfectly cooked medium rare and had a great flavor on its own but the roasted bone marrow to it to another level. My wife ordered the pancetta macaroni and cheese and roasted carrots. The macaroni is fresh made daily by Aaron and was superb. Roasted carrots were in a sorghum glaze with herbs. Entire meal and service was outstanding. Highly recommend.

    We had reservations for 16 for my husband’s retirement party and it did not disappoint. Everyone raves about their dinners. The waiter was exceptionally good and told us about the history of the restaurant. The atmosphere and view the private room was perfect. I would highly recommend for a nice date night or special party.

    Deacon's New South is the place to go in Nashville. They are locally owned and have a great selection of steaks. The bone marrow appetizer was out of this world. Highly recommend that. Also the dry aged steaks are so tender. Will be visiting again.

    Reading others reviews we were excited to celebrate a 40th Anniversary and 60th Birthday with a larger group. We were welcomed promptly and seated in a private nook area. The service was amazing, thank you Emilee! We were not disappointed from the drinks, appetizers, dinner to dessert it was wonderful! We had asked for a dessert topper to be placed and the delivery and presentation of surprise were perfect! Definitely worth it!

    I’ve been to Deacon’s 5 times now, and I am never disappointed. The Steak Frites, filet, New York strip, Brussels sprouts, loaded mashed potatoes, and cheddar biscuits with pimento cheese were all amazing. The tomato soup and chocolate cheesecake weren’t that great. I was hesitant to order the steak frites because it was just a sirloin, but it was honestly one of the best cuts of meat I’ve ever had. We will definitely return.

    We went to Deacons about a year and a half ago w friends. We really liked it then so I booked it when we were in town again. This time, it was even better. The filet was amazing and my husband had halibut w a yummy sauce. We also had a glazed spicy carrot dish as a recommendation from Jasmine, our server. Sooo good. Jasmine never stopped smiling and was a joy to work with. I just referred a friend and would highly recommend if you are close to downtown Nashville.

    We eat here often, so we happily made a reservation for Valentines Day. Everything was great, except I did t care for where we were seated. This is the first time we weren’t seated in the main part of the restaurant. It felt like they had just added tables to the lobby. It just didn’t have the same ambiance as the main part of the restaurant.

    Service was excellent, steaks not so much. For it being a steakhouse they struck out 3/3 times with our group. We ordered the NY strip, bone-in ribeye, and porterhouse — all of which were inconsistently cooked and unseasoned.. This was not worth $80 a steak. The crawfish pasta was also undercooked. However, they were very apologetic and appreciated our feedback. Just not the fine dining experience we expected for my sister’s birthday.
