The Southern Steak & Oyster is a great dining option for groups looking to enjoy classic Southern food and hospitality in a bustling environment. Uniquely positioned in downtown Nashville but off-Broadway, the Southern is the perfect location for groups planning to enjoy a night out of on the town or a night at the Symphony. Offering brunch and dinner menus, The Southern has something for all tastes! Adventurous eaters can indulge in a rotating selection of oysters from all American coasts. More reserved diners can enjoy classics like Fish ‘n’ Grits or Chicken Fried Chicken.
Miel is the ideal restaurant for groups looking to enjoy Nashville’s local restaurant scene. Miel is a Nashville gem that many tourists have yet to discover. Situated in Sylvan Park, Miel offers French-inspired cuisine in a laid-back environment. Larger groups and events can enjoy a dedicated event space called The Barn at Miel. Groups can also order in advance to enjoy large-format dishes like Seafood Boil or a Rack of Lamb.

This 13,000 square foot space spans three floors, making it the perfect place for a large party or group.
