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.

We had a very good meal. Alora was our server and you couldn't ask for better. Started out with a well appointed Charcuterie platter. Bourbon deviled eggs. A little to soft on the filling, the yolk should have a thicker consistency. The flavor was good. We had a well dressed salad, note the croutons were thinly sliced. This is such a better way to eat than big cubed bread pieces. A perfectly done Bone in ribeye with 2 nicely browned scallops. The greens were fantastic as well as the broccolini. Then a deconstructed apple dessert appealing and delicious.

The Porterhouse recommended by our waitress was fantastic. We greatly appreciated how she immediately directed us toward the highest quality menu options. Ambiance was fun/fresh/lively. We had a window table overlooking the downtown. Highly recommend!

Food was great. No complaints at all. Seating arrangements are my biggest complaint.,Our visit was on Feb. 12 for our Valentines night on the town. The restaurant has an automatic door by by the receptionist table. Open up anytime someone walks by. It was cold, so needless to say when automatic door and the main manual door were open at the same time a extreme cold wind blew into restaurant. Us and people sitting in our Vicinity were all wearing coats. Trying to eat an excellent meal while freezing is not at all enjoyable. I will be back because food was excellent but not on a cold night unless I can set away from the door.

Outstanding! Our surprise birthday party for my wife was as much fun as I’ve had in a restaurant in a long time! The restaurant looked beautiful, there was a warm feeling with the staff, and the food was amazing right out of the gate. The six of us felt safe and pampered by our wonderful server Abbie, who was fun, efficient and always had perfect timing. Sarah, Austin, also helped make it the best birthday ever. Chef Chris gave us one stunning dish after another, and we were reminded of how off the charts the dry age steaks are!
Thank you so much for the great experience!

The evening overall was just ok
Two of our guests were sent Wrong entrees and nothing was really done about it. After much confusion from runners, Our guests just said they would take what was delivered. No manager came out to even check out the table.
Our table was a group of tables pushed together and were very uneven. This caused our bottle of wine when moved to tip over and lose some of its contents. Our server came and cleaned it up. We discussed the table issue and asked if anything could be done. She just laughed and said basically too bad.
This was a double Birthday Celebration.

At this point, I will not be able to recommend this restaurant.

Our server took us to the backside of the restaurant. In the winter time it’s extremely cold in that area and it made the experience a lot less enjoyable because we were freezing the entire time. Try to avoid getting a table in the back

We went to celebrate our elopement earlier in the day, the host and our server Matthew were wonderful offering many well wishes and congratulations. The food was outstanding as was the service. We had an excellent meal! Compliments to the chef, (sorry I cannot recall his name). Our steaks, a 20oz bone in rib-eye and a porterhouse that we shared between 4 adults were cooked perfectly. The Fried Broccolini was a big hit, the Crispy Brussel Sprouts were a perfect mix of sweet and savory and the Mac & Cheese was just plain delicious! Even Josh from the bar (I think that’s the right name, I did have a drink or two) came over and was sure to offer congrats and best wishes. It really was a great evening, we had a wonderful time! We’ll definitely be back next time we’re in Nashville!!
