    Great Place for Lunch

    Downtown with our dog for lunch. Called ahead to confirm patio was open with Covid. Hostess held a spot for us outside on the patio. Service was excellent and the Southern burger was fantastic. Our dog enjoyed it, too.

    One of our Nashville Favorites!

    I was so excited to learn that The Southern was pet friendly on their patio. We love the food and service! We enjoyed multiple meals here on our last trip to Nashville. The staff was friendly, patio patrons didn't seem to mind our four legged guest and we were offered water for the pup (but we always travel with our own compact bowl) 'cause I'm not sharing my martini. Yummmm!

    Great service

    My mom and I took our 2 dogs here for lunch on a hot Monday. The staff was very nice and accommodating and brought water out to both dogs and made sure the ceiling fans were on for us. The food was delicious. Will definitely be back with or without the furbabies :)

    Nice Dowtown Patio

    We recently stopped at The Southern for lunch with our small dog while visiting Nashville. The food was good, and the patio provides a nice view of downtown. The wait staff was friendly to us and our dog, however, I didn't give 5 bones as they didn't offer some of the things other dog friendly restaurants do, such as a bowl of water for the dogs on the patio.
