Perry’s Steakhouse & Grille, at McEwen Northside, 5028 Aspen Grove Drive in Franklin opens today, Feb 25. The steakhouse was set to open last week, however, due to inclement weather, they postponed. This is the first location for the steakhouse in the Nashville area.

We were able to get a glimpse inside – it has a very upscale feel, an expansive bar, a private dining room, and so much more. We received samples of some of the most popular items starting with crafted cocktails of Peachy Glen, Thyme Lemon Drop, and my favorite the Smoky Rita (their take on a margarita with orange liqueur rimmed with habanero sugar.)

A second-course sampling included pork chop bites and an outstanding Chateaubriand, it was served in three medallions with their signature sauces. Dessert was the show-stopping Nutty D’Angelo, made tableside. The flaming dessert features a praline-crusted ice cream topped with pecans, brown sugar, and brandy. Take a look at our photos below.



Perry’s award-winning menu, impeccable service and vibrantly elegant, yet comfortable atmosphere create an experience for guests that is truly Rare and Well Done®. The menu offers signature elements including butcher-fresh USDA Aged Prime Beef, signature tableside carvings, and flamed desserts, as well as its mouth-watering pork chop.


The freestanding 11,000+ square-foot space was designed in partnership with the renowned restaurant architect Aria Group Architects, Inc. It will provide a view of every angle of the main dining room including a glance at chef creations in the kitchen and glimpses of Perry’s Bar 79 through the towering wine wall. From the vibrant color palette to its exquisite use of glass, lighting and other textures, every detail in the restaurant was deliberately selected to create an inviting environment that the local community will appreciate, whether they’re enjoying an intimate dinner, a business meeting, an elegant celebration, or Perry’s special Pork Chop Friday Lunch. The restaurant, which can accommodate up to 350 people, includes an expansive main dining room, four private dining spaces perfect for any occasion, and outdoor dining for approximately 46
