Went to The Southern while in Nashville for a baseball tournament. The halibut and sweet potato grits were amazing. Everyone in our dinner party loved their food. Waitress was very helpful & attentive.

This is one of my favorites in Nashville. The oysters are always fresh and service has always been good. The steaks are great and it's a fun atmosphere.

Stopped in with the family for lunch yesterday. I've been to NOLA many times and still believe it to be the best, most diverse food in the country, especially when seafood comes into play. Needless to say, when I saw this place, I was intrigued,...More

My wife ordered the southern wedge and it was disappointing. Her wedge was small and toppings were skimpy. I had the new south caesar and it was very good and plentiful. She had the fried chicken entree. It was tasty but you would not expect...More
