Turkey and dressing, fried catfish, and grilled pork loin were amazing. The greens, grilled squash, and deviled eggs are all A +. We three shared a coconut cream fried pie and wished for more. We'll be back next time we're in the area.

We eat out often, always looking for special places in Tennessee. Dean's is at the top of our list. We've never had anything that wasn't delicious, and their portions are very generous. The wood-grilled corn on the cob is life-changing, and their brisket melts in...More

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
