The Southern Ratings and Reviews
I was here once before an had a great experience. Second time around wasn’t as good. Our poor waiter was clearly over seated with his tables which wasn’t his fault. He was really nice and helpful. Food was good but I felt like it was just a messy situation. Booth was dirty when we were seated, my napkin was dirty, someone else was missing a fork from their roll up and when food came out they were handing us plates instead of putting them down for us. I don’t really care about that except when it’s supposed to be a nicer place and I feel like it’s being served cafeteria style and not even a “would you mind passing this over for me?” Just handed out for us to diatribe the food to who it’s for. Hard to explain. I wasn’t impressed this time around.
We ate there before a concert at the Schermerhorn. It was very busy. We were seated immediately. Geoff, our server, was attentive, helpful and was patient as our friends were stuck in traffic and running late. My husband’s pork chop and friend’s steak were huge and tender. Our salads were delicious. Overall, the food was wonderful as was the service. It was pretty loud while we were there, but it didn’t deter from our supper. We will happily return in the future.
LOVE THE SOUTHERN! We always make sure to visit when we're in town. This time we tried the nudie custom steak which was delicious but WHOA really expensive! 100 for one steak is pricey even for this New Yorker! Wish we were told by the butcher/chef. Still super delicious and we will be back!
I love the energetic atmosphere of this restaurant! The interior design of the main area is beautiful. The ceiling shaped as a compass rose is gorgeous. Valerie our waitress was so friendly and attentive. Food was amazing! Can’t wait to get back to Nashville, especially to The Southern!
The tacos had 1 ounce of meat, ridiculous for what the price was for two and not have more than an ounce. Steak that was suppose to be med rare came out raw twice. It was a Thursday night, come on get your sh$t together. Had to wait for our table(made reservations) ok, but then 20 minutes go by and I asked front desk if we could order apps if it was going to be much longer, she said. We have been texting you , show her cell nada on it(we were standing in front of her the whole 20 minutes, had entered my cell wrong) it then it went down hill from there. Need more training
The atmosphere is really "Nashville" since we had live music. the down side of that is it was really loud and hard to have conversation at the table. The food was good, but it was pricey and a small portion. I had a bellini with brunch, and it was not good. This restaurant did not live up to the "hype" that preceded our dining experience.
Went for brunch- had the burger which was AMAZING and I'm not a big burger eater. I don't even really like bacon, but the jalapeño bacon was delicious paired with the pimento cheese- yum! And the sweet potato fries were delicious too. Steven was our waiter - he helped me choose the burger and it exceeded my expectations!
Excellent! We've dined here a few times (at different times of day/evening) and have always been pleased. The Belle' is my choice for a really good & tender beef filet. This is not a petit cut, so come hungry! It is served over a chive potato mash that is just perfect. The T-bones are HUGE and very flavorful. You just can't pick a wrong choice, it is all great. Husband is always very happy with the oyster selections. The horseradish is very good and very HOT, you have been warned! lol
We had a friend in town to go to Bridgestone for a concert. I got us a Table at the Southern and advised her that it was our favorite combination of food. location, service and general all-around-ness. We had a great time on a nice evening and her comment about the scallops that she ordered was "it was almost a religous experience". I had my usual fish and grits. Not QUITE religious but very good. We shared oysters at our table and they were (as always) outstanding.
Our waitress was very kind. She let us take our time ordering. I was with relatives I hadn’t seen in a long time. We were there for lunch on a cloudy day. We ordered her recommendation of the Sweet Beef and Potato Soup. It was a perfect meal with a southern wedge salad. Great food and atmosphere! We will be back!
My boyfriend and I had breakfast here and loved every bit of it. The food was delicious, the service was personable and informative, and the atmosphere was inviting! What an incredible bar and vibe. Overall, great experience and will definitely return on another trip to Nashville!
Food was good. Service was good however, felt completely rushed. Main dishes came out within 2 minutes of our appetizer arriving therefore it was cold by the time we started eating. Wanted to enjoy a birthday brunch and just felt like our server was trying as fast as she could to turn the table. For a special occasion, and the price that goes along with that kind of restaurant you certainly don't want to feel rushed or have your food cold. Nice restaurant, beautiful décor, quite loud, extremely busy during peak times. Crab cakes and Shrimp and Grits were good.
First time in Nashville and the Southern was recommended as a must eat at by two different people. We were in town for a concert at Bridgestone arena and the restaurant was a very easy walking distance. Great food and very nice wine list. Did not get to try dessert because we were stuffed.
