A word from Urban Grub
In a city known for putting up platinum food as well as platinum records, Nashville has a bounty of restaurant options but none as unique, exciting
and diverse as the sure-fire hit Urban Grub. Stuffy upscale is out…..ethnic,
healthy, casual and pick-up is in which makes Urban Grub the next big star
on the Nashville dining scene. The menu is a combination of southern traditions
with a “flavored up tweak, ” fresh fish and seafood, fresh shucked oysters,
smoked and grilled meats and vegetables, and cantina style hand-helds.

Diner Reviews
  • "We came to Nashville with friends to celebrate a birthday. We picked Urban Grub because of the food and drinks. The food was wonderful, especially the shrimp and grits. The noise level was really loud. We couldn't speak to one another and wait staff had to get in your face to hear your order."

  • "We were on the lookout for somewhere we hadn't been before in Nashville and stumbled across Urban Grub. I'm glad we did! The food was amazing and the service was great. The only negative was the closeness of the tables. My wife and I were out to spend some time together and I felt I was eating dinner with two other couples."

  • "My Appetizer was disappointing and not what was expected. My pasta was under cooked. The dessert was good. The drink was ok. The service was not good. It was slow and our waiter seemed like he had other things to do. If one of my friends really wants to go back and they promise to pay, I'll go back and order desserts and a drink."

  • "Loved it! Food, service, atmosphere were all great! Was a very hot day and the resturaunt was too warm but I doubt this is a typical problem. The trout was outstanding!"

  • "We had friends in from out of town. They wanted to go someplace that was "trendy Nashville" I had been to Urban Grub on business and thought it fit the bill. Great dinner, great wine and great service. The pork chop is huge and worth every penny... but the shrimp and grits are the best in town."

  • "Great place to dine when you want a meal that is spot on. Great ambience. Outdoor seating was divine. Friendly wait staff. Fast and speedy valet parking. Waiter was great and attentive. Waiter took the time to explain the menu and also make recommedations. The shrimp and grits are a must have. Compliments to the chef."

  • "Had heard good things, so I went here for a special occasion with a date and was immediately seated in one of the worst tables I've ever seen for a nicer restaurant. We asked to be re-seated and the next spot they offered was an awkward cramped sliver of a table. We could not hear our waitress list off the specials due to the close proximity to others, and decided to leave after our pricey appetizer consisted of 4 shrimp and little flavor. We walked down the street to much more reasonable accommodations."

  • "The service was great for our dinner. The server as friendly and attentive. However, we were seated outside next to the bar and it was very noisy and not a good location for a romantic dinner. The food was all great- but mostly on the heavy side- even the wedge salad. I would go back with a large group of friends- but not for a date night."

  • "Urban Grub is one of our "go to" places when we have people in town visiting. Appetizers, dinner, and drinks were excellent. Servers were very informed and helped us pick perfect choices for us."

  • "Lobster Blt flatbread was cold and the spread on the flatbread was taste like plain cream cheese. Pork carnitas were flavorless (no salt). Pork fries were great as usual"

  • "Priced expensive compared to other restaurants of the same style in town. Wine list is good and has some great finds... Menu is tough to order from -- everything from raw bar, to enchiladas, to steaks - confusing. Probably will only return for a drink and appetizers."

  • "Best shrimp and grits ever! We were there at Saturday brunch time, and unlike all the other non-chain restaurants offering brunch on Saturday, they weren't forcing you to eat breakfast dishes until 3:00, as you can still order off the regular menu. Everyone enjoyed everything they ordered except the hot chicken. It isn't really Nashville hot chicken, but I don't actually remember if it claimed to be. Can't wait to go back."

  • "Our brunch/lunch was so good. Everything was fresh and the service was excellent. Love the fresh oyster options and the sangria is very good."

  • "Just be aware that you should specify whether you want indoor or outdoor seating. We did not and they tried to seat us outside in the muggy heat, saying there would be a 30-minute wait for an indoor table. They did find an indoor table for us (albeit next to a very large group) in much less time."

  • "I made a reservation for 6 to celebrate a friend's birthday. I had heard nothing but good things about this restaurant. I couldn't have been more disappointed with my experience. It was really dark, really dark. We had to use the flashlights on our phones to read the menu. Our server was horrible. In the 2+ hours we were there, we never once got a water refill despite me asking. We had to ask for bread 3 times before she finally brought it. It took her forever to take our food order. I would say my biggest complaint was the ambiance and our waitress. The food wasn't bad but for the price I wasn't that impressed and neither were my friends."

  • "Third visit. Never disappoints! Brought out of town guests. We all loved the experience. Food was excellent & creative in both menu diversity and use of fresh ingredients. Service was great. Nice wine list and fun adult drinks. Has atmosphere with many different dining options: bar scene, patio &/or indoor dining; casual feel yet special in and of itself and the 12 South area..."

  • "Our family gathered for a special family celebration. We were seated as soon as we arrived (a few minutes ahead of our 6:15 reservation) - service was prompt. We had a couple of appetizers - our food followed quickly. We enjoyed the food - the only complaint was that one person ordered the Southern Steak Frites, and the steak was a bit tough. The noise level was high - it was difficult at times to hear. But it was an enjoyable evening. This was the first time for us to dine at Urban Grub - we would return for a special occasion."

  • "Our recent experience at Urban Grub was great. We sat outside on the small patio area, which was perfect for catching up with friends because the inside was pretty noisy. The food was very good - I'd recommend the 1/2 NY strip steak with a side of grits. The Club Carbonara, is not a traditional carbonara but delicious. I think the smoked chicken makes it. We also had the banana pudding pie, which was delicious! - albeit over-priced. Grab one for the table to share (E.g. 4 people). All-in-all a great night but a bit pricey for what we got. Note: The servers were awesome."

  • "Urban Grub was suggested from a friend as somewhere to take my wife for our Anniversary. The staff was attentive, the food was exceptional, the wine list varied and the beer selection provided many options. Garth, the owner, took time to check on us when we sat down and came back around as we were finishing my wife's favorite dessert, banana pudding (UG's version). As we rarely venture into Nashville for evenings out, this was a treat and well worth the effort. I would put this on my list of establishments to frequent. Enjoy!"

  • "This was not the first time we have been to Urban Grub. The food is amazing. We enjoyed it. Our complaint relates to our seating request that was made a week in advance. We requested to be seated outside dining. They were unable to accommodate our request without an additional 30 minute wait. The reason we made reservations was to avoid a wait. We noticed there were empty tables on all three patios. We desired to sit outside because of the noise level inside the restaurant ... it is very noisy, and one person in our party has hearing aids, and the noise level makes it very difficult for him to join in the conversation at the table."

  • "Great food and vibe in restaraunt. Food was delicious, however we did experience a couple of issues. The waiter completely forgot our appetizer and we never received it. Crab Spaghetti was sent back because the spaghetti was chewy and not done. The waiter proceeded to explain to us that it's made fresh every day therefore it cooks this way.....nonsense, just because it's made fresh has nothing to do with it being under cooked. He finally took it back to the Chef, but then brought it back with more excuses. Never experienced a waiter bringing back the same food you just sent back. Finally took it back for good and the Chef prepared spaghetti that was better (or nouked it...lol). We will go again maybe service is better the 2nd time around."
