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 is one of the best steak restaurants period. Aged beef. Awesome appetizers. Excellent service. This is the very best dinner experience I had and I will remember about Nashville.

We try a new Nashville restaurant every Sunday pm. This one was a big disappointment. Food was cold and undercooked-both meals! Recommended cut of meat for steak was fatty and awful. Broccolini was chewy and hard. Not crisp and tender. Don't know why I bothered to order dessert-it too was awful. The ice cream on the Chocolate tart tasted like Nyquil. I think the tart was aiming to be bittersweet but was just very dry coco powder! Won't be going back.

Came here for my birthday on Saturday 11/2. Wife likes filet well done, took 3 attempts and then it was VERY DRY! After 3 attempts, my food and sides were cold. Had read the great reviews so expectations were high, very disappointed. Waitress and manager were very helpful and tried to make amends, the problem is with the chef who runs his hands through his hair, touches his phone and then touches the steaks that go out!! Not good hygiene practices. ( when you sit near the kitchen window, you see everything!)

Made reservations for 8. We were not seated until almost 8:30. The bar was full and there was no designated waiting area which was my biggest turn off because you feel a bit out of place while waiting. However the hostess was very courteous due to our wait and gave us an appetizer on the house. Overall a good experience besides the listed reasons above.

Great service. The food is always great and our waiter, Matt, gave excellent suggestions on food and beer and had a great personality. We will be back for a fourth time at least.

We were a group of 4 women. Had reservations at 7:30 but went at 6:15 to enjoy the bar. The hostess was very unfriendly from the start and said to come back to the desk at 7:30 when our reservation was which we did. She said we'd have to wait for a table so we did and when it was taking so long, I asked her again if there was a table for us and she just acted annoyed. The food took forever to get to us and it was just ok. I was not impressed.

Had a great table by the kitchen theater. Food was wonderful and our server was awesome and helpful. We tried the very unusual sounding Peanut Butter & Jelly dessert and loved it!

The food was good, and the service was excellent. I was dining with my daughter before a show at the Ryman, which is an easy walk from Deacon’s. We shared the collard dip for an appetizer. I appreciated that the collards weren’t lost in the “dip,” but it didn’t have quite enough flavor. The bread with this dish was delicious. For our entrees, we got a burger and the mushroom bucatini. Both were solid dishes. Overall, Deacon’s is a good choice for a nice downtown meal with excellent service.

The steak, Brussels sprouts, Mac and cheese were excellent. The service was a little slow at times, but the restaurant was packed so understandable. Will go back.

The steak here was phenomenal and the service was excellent. We tried the Brussel Sprouts & they were incredible. The Yukon potatoes were a great addition as well. Nice, welcoming atmosphere!

Would definitely recommend for a night out with friends or even a date night.
