Absolutely fantastic food, but very noisy. The sound echos because the dining area is basically just a huge room with tile floors. It's better if you can get a booth because the tables in the middle of the room are where the noise is bothersome (you can hear everyone around you and the noises from the bar and kitchen). The southern style (fried) chicken is amazing!



This restaurant is a busy one! I've always had to wait to get a spot, so just know that ahead of time. I really love the food here, though, and it is completely worth getting to spend some extra time in downtown Nashville. :) I know for a fact that their Chicken Fried Chicken, Old South Cheeseburger, and Hotcakes are delicious, and there are still so many more fun dishes to try!


confused by 5 star reviews

Not the friendliest service by a long shot. ... especially for a restaurant called the southern. Food small portions. I think over priced for the quality. I ordered 6 oysters and when they brought it out I asked if I could upgrade to a dozen. They said couldn't do that since already ordered. Turns out they made it work. But made me feel uncomfortable for asking. I just wanted six more. The menu is very limited. Loud in there.
