Urban Grub is a casual fine dining bar and eatery located in a renovated carwash in Nashville’s iconic 12 South district.

The design of the restaurant features a rustic elegance, filled with custom woodwork, stone fireplaces and rounded booths tucked in intimate corners. Urban Grub offers both indoor and outdoor seating with a combination of the two in the beer garden, accompanied a view of the restaurant’s meat curing room, as well as a covered gazebo for larger parties.

From the inviting indoor-outdoor atmosphere to the elevated Southern cuisine of fresh seafood, house-made charcuterie, and prime dry-aged steaks, the experience is unforgettable.

As always, Urban Grub was on point. This time I wanted to try to the Duck Breast and it was simply amazing. It was one of the best dishes I have had in the city.

Food, as always was excellent. I was a little disappointed in the lack of older dry aged meats, but apparently they had been very busy recently. Usually not the case. The noise level was too loud in the area we were in. So loud that the servers had to yell at us to tell us the specials. But again, the food was amazing. Some of the best steaks in Nashville USDA Prime

I moved to Nashville about a year ago to the Green Hills area and Urban Grub was the first restaurant in the area we tried. My wife and I actually put the offer in on our house from the bar area. We love the place and go back once every month or two. From the free valet parking to the hostesses to the wait staff and managers, everyone is there to make sure you have a great experience. We have a 2 year old and bring him some of the time and even though they do not have a kids menu they go out of our way to make us feel comfortable. Personally i am a huge ribeye fan and while I've tried the pork chops (which were fantastic) I it is always my go to. Keep up the great work.

One of the hostesses was very rude and seemed like we were bothering her. She just stared down at her iPad while customers were waiting to be acknowledged. It was strange. They secondary hostess who took people to their tables was friendly.

When I booked my reservations I wasn’t aware of a set menu for Valentine’s Day. But that wasn’t the problem. Our server was rude and would not explain the menu to us. She insulted my wife several times as well. And when we decided to leave and only pay for our appetizer we ordered she double charged us. Overall our experience was horrible and we have never experienced such bad service anywhere like this ever. Our server should be fired and should not be a server anywhere

My wife and I had heard good things about this restaurant, but we both came away a bit disappointed. The food was good, service was slow. Tables around us ordered after we did and left while we were still getting food.

Maybe we went on an off day, better luck next time? We will give them a second chance.

Disappointed. Service was very slow. Even with a confirmed reservation had to wait 15 minutes for a table. Would not accommodate special requests on menu. I wanted to swap side dishes. It took nearly an hour to get our meal. Did nothing to compensate us for the wait. Noise level was high.

The food was excellent. The setting is energetic, but not so loud that you can't have a conversation. Service was good (until a waiter accidentally dropped food and a used fork down my back!)

I plan to go back again!

Table was next to a door with a terrible draft. My husband had the smoked chicken-totally dried out! I had the trout which was very good, the bread and dessert were awesome. The charcuterie board was good but very pricey for what you got. Service was solid, bartender very good, we had the grilled shrimp as an appetizer-best part of the meal!
