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.

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.

My husband and I were in Nashville for the weekend and chose Deacon for dinner one night. The meat and cheese tray was delicious and so was the wine. Our waitress, Alora, was fantastic and so was every other employee we met. The ambiance in the restaurant is really good also. The only reason I gave it 4 stars instead of 5 is because both of us ordered a filet, medium rare and they both cane out way over cooked! Other than that it was a great experience!

Expensive steak was not up to par. Tough. Poor quality for a 55 dollar steak Mac and cheese was good and so were the broccolini. Service extremely slow. Bad night at Deacons. Sorry.

If you are looking for a great steak in Nashville...this is the place. Sat upfront by the window for some great people watching and started with a fair priced Cabernet. Followed the wine with a dozen great oysters. All in our party of 4 ordered a different cut of steak. Everyone was very happy with the quality and the temperature of their meat. Mac and cheese and brussel sprouts were perfect sides. Definitely recommend!

Deacon’s was great. The kitchen and wait staff were very good about accommodating my friend with food allergies.
However, our parking experience was dreadful! The location of Deacon’s basically forced us to park in the parking garage on Printers Alley since there is no restaurant parking. We paid $20 to park in the garage for 2hrs. After dinner we returned to our car 16 mins past the 2hrs that we paid for and found our car had been booted! I had to pay another $70 to get the boot off the car! This is highway robbery! Only 16 mins over the parking meter!
We are Davidson County residents! Something must be done about this ASAP!

Nice place great atmosphere. Server was fantastic from start to finish. Food was okay nothing to wow and the choices are sometimes obscure. It could be we were here on a night they just did not have the steaks or seafood up to par.

We celebrated my birthday with brunch at Deacon’s! Everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food. I got the chicken and waffles and I highly recommend. Two for one mimosas were also very good. The place was super spacious and beautifully decorated. Our service was very good - the waitress was very sweet and super attentive. We can’t wait to go back and try dinner!

Deacon's was a real treat. We learned about the difference between the wet aging and dry aging processes as our server, Sierra, gave us great guidance on how to choose the right steak for our taste. The Porterhouse did not disappoint. The starter charcuterie platter and deviled eggs were stellar, as were the broccolini, brussels sprouts, greens, and mac and cheese. Overall a fantastic - and educational - dining experience in every way.

We had a great dinner on a busy Friday night. We arrived a little early for our reservation and were shown to the bar for cocktails. Our waiter was amazing. He gave us great recommendations for what to have and we went with all of them. Best choice we could've made!

My friends and I had a great experience at Deacon's New South this past Saturday evening. The food was excellent - a few of us had the red snapper special (so good!), ambiance was great, cocktails were so good, chocolate tart for dessert was a 10 AND our server, Alora was such a delight! Absolutely so sweet and attentive! :)

My second trip to Deacon's and like before, it did not disappoint. Perfect place for dinner to celebrate three birthdays on a weekend trip to Nashville. Food is amazing, unique twist on Southern comfort food but with some healthy options as well. Amazing service - ask for Sierra!

Even though the portion ’s were massive the Meal was amazing. Everything about the bourbon, wine, side choices as well as the gourmet rendering of each dish was by far one of the best we’ve had if not the best in the last five years.
