We went here for my wife's first mother's day. The atmosphere is really cool. The oysters are a little pricey but totally worth it. I ordered the shrimp and grits and it was very good. Good hot sauces also. More...

Truly amazing food and atmosphere! Have to dine here each time I'm in town. This visit was even more special because Geoff, our waiter, was exceptional! I love honest recommendations and input and he provided just that! Just loved him!! More...

Absolutely delicious Sunday brunch with live music (per usual in Nashville). We went with shrimp n' grits and the hot chicken salad. Ate each of them too fast to even get a picture. Great for people watching as well. More...

Had a wonderful time for lunch! The atmosphere was awesome and my husband and I had a great time! We ordered oysters to start and they were some of the best we have ever had! We ordered a burger and a salad for our meals and they were absolutely fantastic! If you have the opportunity to go you should definitely do it. We will be back! More...

There are not enough superlatives to describe our trip to the Southern. We arrived about 4:30 (during the anytime menu) and started with drinks, recommended by our server, and oysters. We asked our server, the incomparable Landon, what other appetizer we should get to go with the oysters. His recommendation of the crab cakes was perfect. They are topped with a hominy relish that took them to a new level.

Landon's service never missed a beat the entire time we dined. His suggestions for our dinner were delicious. Pack a serious appetite if you order the porkchops, they are HUGE and perfectly cooked. The mashed potatoes were creamy goodness. The chicken fried chicken was light and juicy a wonderful ham gravy on top. Substituting the greens for the butternut squash was a delicious choice.

Our only regret was having no room for dessert! Next time, Southern. Next time!

Great food, surprisingly fast service. Especially considering we were there right before playoff hockey game. The stakes are magnificent, and the people that were with really love the oysters. The fried green tomatoes were a flop. Wouldn't recommend them. Otherwise excellent place to go in downtown Nashville, I loved sitting outside and being out basically on the sidewalk. Pretty good craft beer selection also. Several local Brews, a friend of ours went with the Jackalope. Brown ale, they said it was really good. More...

Great atmosphere in the middle of downtown Nashville. The Belle steak was seasoned and cooked perfectly. The Double Cut Smoked Pork Chop looks like it was cut from a T-Rex yet still so tender. Chicken Fried Chicken is also a great choice! More...

My absolute favorite brunch place. I take everyone who visits me here. I'm addicted to the chicken and waffles! Though, the egg sandwich is killer too. The fires are great with any of their sauces. The best atmosphere, live music, and delightful staff. More...

I really like The Southern. The Saffire Steak Biscuits are my favorite appetizer and the Southern Burger is one of the best burgers I've ever had. The limited menu makes dining with pickier eaters a bit difficult. It's a bit pricey, but not out of the ordinary for dining in downtown Nashville. More...

Great lunch...very inviting location! Everything on the menu sounds amazing...it was hard to chose only one dish! The burger I decided on was delicious and the service was excellent. I'll definitely be back the next time I'm town! More...

Let me start by saying this is a white table cloth, fine dining restaurant.. We weren't expecting that, but that's ok. It was so funny...We wanted raw oysters, so we were seated and the server brings the water and wine, and ask if we would like an app. I said yes, I would like a dozen raw. She ask what kind? I said raw... She said well we have about a dozen different kinds of raw, here is the oryster menu they range from $30-$100+

We had a Phenomenal dinner, It was a bit pricey..

For 2 of us our bill was around $280.00. with the house bottle of wine, app, and 2 entrees.

Great food and service. Paige was a super helpful waitress with great recommendations. Visiting from out of town and don’t think we could’ve picked a better spot

Excellent service and food. We were there for a quick after dinner dessert and drinks. Even with a busy Saturday night service, the service was spot on and focused.

I definitely recommend this restaurant if you are in the Downtown Nashville area.

Absolutely amazing. Service - southern hospitality like, no rush easy going. Food- 100/10! Best grits I've ever had and their home-made jam was out of this world.

Our dinner was so delicious! We sat at the bar & Andy waited on us. He made outstanding suggestions from our drinks, oysters, dinner & deserts. We wasn't disappointed with any of his suggestions. Thank you Andy! More...

By far one of the best steak houses that I've been to in the country. Great whiskey list if you want premium labels. Do not order the cookie plate for dessert, big let down. Their banana bread pudding was amazing like the main course. More...
