Our hotel recommended this restaurant for breakfast because most people don’t know that they serve breakfast and their food is really good. That’s exactly what we found. Hardly anybody was there and the food was amazing.

Our service was absolutely amazing, the waiter was knowledgeable, hospitable and had a good sense of humour. We tried a few types of oysters and it they were all delicious. I ordered the salmon, which was lovely. Everyone else ordered steaks and there was not one complaint. We will definitely be back in future trips to Nashville.

We chose the Southern as it was a few block from our hotel & had a pet friendly patio (we were traveling with our dog). My husband got the wedge salad and added hot chicken to it; it was delicious. I, however, got the burger. It was horrible. The bun tasted like it came from McDonald’s, the burger patty was small & must have been frozen - just all around awful. I was so hungry (6.5mo pregnant) that I ate it anyway. The fries that came with the burger were very soggy. Too bad, because there is really excellent food in Nashville, and possibly at this restaurant, but I wouldn’t go back or recommend it based on how gross and underwhelming the burger was.

I am not sure if this was on off night for The Southern but I am struggling to find something positive to say about it.
We came for dinner after making an 8pm reservation. We were quickly seated in our booth without any wait time which was great considering peak hour and the place was packed.

Our waiter came to us quickly with the menus and after a few minutes we placed our drinks order and our order for appetizers.
Appetizers came before drinks. We were done eating them by the time the first round of drinks came out.
I had a glass of wine, thankfully, because the sazerac that my friends was just not drinkable.
Entrees arrived about 50 minutes later. We all had a steak. Nobody ate them because they were all cold, not seasoned and just bad.
This is all about 90 minutes into dinner. We still haven't had the opportunity to for another round of drinks.
Things just kept going from bad to worse so we finally paid our check and went to another place in the area for burgers.

The Southern is typically a place with good food and good service. This week we stopped in for an appetizer and a beverage while downtown and enjoyed our happy hour visit.

Main dish items carry downtown prices. Happy hour items of fried green tomatoes or oysters are a good value. We'll be back.
