fantastic establishment. fabulous food. the servers really know exactly what they are talking about. beautiful setting. all employees very friendly. you could tell the employees loved their job and place of employment.

I enjoyed The Southern very much with the exception of some drunk and obnoxious people at the table next to us. I might come here for a more fun night with friends and join in next time though. ;) The service was fabulous and our server went above and beyond to explain the dishes to us. He sold me on a soup I wouldn't have otherwise tried. Food quality is the best I've had in Nashville. Looking forward to my next visit.

The appetizers, entrees and drinks were really good. The service not so much. First bartender was rude, never came back to see if we like the drinks and must not have heard when we requested something sweet since the drinks were bitter. Second bartender was great, gave us different drinks, so good and his recommendations for the apps were on point. Seated in the dining room and thought it was noisier than Titan Stadium. We were opposing fans celebrating our anniversary. The waiter was great, gave us suggestions, took our order and changed the TV to sports for us. Food was served by someone other than our waiter, no problem. Finished our meal with out our waiter coming back to the table. Unusual. Waited for our bill about 15 minutes. Asked another waitress for the bill. Waited another 10 minutes, no bill. The waiter was in the room we were in, waiting on 4 tables and being very attentive to them, just not us. Maybe he didn't like the Raider shirt I had on, but either way he never came back and neither did a bill. We eventually dropped enough money to cover our dinner on the table and left. Almost 1/2 hr without a "Can I get you anything?" or "Is everything prepared the way you requested?" or "Would you like to see a dessert menu?" We would have ordred other items if not dessert if the waiter had come back to the table. If the service had been good I would given more stars.

Amazing. Chicken fried chicken with white cheddar mac is unreal and the baby back ribs melt off the bone. Also the biscuits.... whaaaaat. So good. Get a reservation early. Our server was also super attentive and there was no wait, but we ate at 530.

Ordered my steak medium well (I know, a sin, but is how I like it). It came out medium rare, so the waiter sent it right back. Steak #2 - rare. I let the waiter know we were going backwards. He took it right back to the kitchen, and steak #3 was perfect - worth the wait. It was all handled very well, and they gave me free dessert for my troubles. So while not the perfect experience, I would recommend the Southern and their wait staff to all.

Food and service was fantastic. The eggs with brisket was to die for. The eggs were so fresh and tasty, the pancakes were made from scratch and delicious. Mimosas were tasty too! Great waiter, and very friendly staff. Love it.

Unfortunately the construction in the area makes it nearly impossible to get to the restaurant I will not go back until it clears out which may be a year. The place is simply too noisy for me to enjoy so it's off my list as a regular spot. The food is good but not great

I took customers to the Southern for dinner and it was a good experience. The serving sizes are not too big and that is good if you want to sample appetizers, have a salad and a meal without feeling stuffed or wasting food. The service was excellent. I had the fish and sweet potato grits. The grits were very sweet, more so than I expected, but the dish was good. the fish was a nice piece of halibut. I'd probably order something else if I go back again. The shrimp appetizer was excellent and the crab cake was good, maybe a bit too much whole kernel corn but a good flavor. The wedge salad was very good and the wine selection was quite nice.

We loved our visit to The Southern. The food was fantastic and service was top notch. The only downside was it was a little loud (we were sitting next to a large crowd at the bar) and very pricey, but perfect for a special occasion. Will definitely be back on our next visit to Nashville!

The raw oysters weren't as fresh as they were last time I visited, but still good. We had the Wellfleets and the Malpeques. My husband had the lamb chops. They were outstanding. I had the "Bless Your Heart" salad topped with grilled shrimp. It was so incredible it didn't even need any salad dressing. My husband had a Brandy Manhattan before dinner and he's fairly picky. He said it was great. We love this place every time we go.

Very crowded when we arrived, but we had a reservation, so I wasn't worried. After 20 minutes of watching people without reservations get seated, I started to worry. Sure enough, we were forgotten about. The waitress was lovely and took our orders right away and then vanished for 20 minutes, without bringing coffee. In fact, the coffee didnt come until after the meal was served. Brunch was good, not great. We ordered cookies for dessert and waited another 20 minutes for that. No one at any point asked if we needed any more drinks and the coffee was never refilled. I'm sure I can do better with all the choices Nashville has to offer.

The food is really good here but the portions are fairly small. It is a fun place to go but it is noisy even without the music. We don't care for the live music here because it's impossible to have a table conversation.

This was a very fun place and the food was delicious. Our server was very nice also. I loved the live band which wasn't so loud that you couldn't talk and hear each other. I would highly recommend this restaurant!

I had been to the Southern before and wanted to take my husband back. We were so disappointed in everything. My food was cold, the $6 latte was half foam, and our waitress seemed clueless when we asked questions. There are MUCH better brunch options around for the money. This was a waste of $40.

I may not be the right demographic for this restaurant. Wanted to eat close to Ascend so chose The Southern. Way too touristy. Too noisy. Wait staff pretty basic..was hurried. Fish tacos a huge disappointment. Fish of the day was over salted. On the upside - valet parking for the car until after the concert is a good deal.
