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.

We came in for cocktails + lots of apps.
Trey, our server, was professional yet FUN! He had excellent recommendations for Oysters on the half shell, Baked Oysters, Pork Fries (YUM!) & cocktails.
We look forward to having him take care of us for a Full Dining experience soon!
Fantastic!! Excellent , fresh seafood and amazing aged steaks. Ambiance was also superb!
Birthday dinner...Nashville girls weekend! Pork chop was epic! Lobster Mac and cheese...insanely good! Scallops amazing!
Ask for James Webb. You won’t be disappointed. He’s an amazing waiter. Food selection is wonderful as always. Try the double cut pork chop, the bacon wrapped trout, or whatever James may recommend. Enjoy!
We had the cream brussel sprout app and Filet for dinner and both were wonderful.
Best Rib Eye steak I've ever had. I'd pay 100 dollars more for that steak. Incredible.
Been there a couple times, I love the place. The server was terrible and I told him I wanted the toppings on my pork chops on the side, so he took it back and scrapped them off after I told him I wanted fresh ones.
I believe it was the first time I have ever "NOT" left a tip. I do not like to penalize the server for other people's issues but the level of service and the attitude of the hosts and a manager was simply terrible. Waited too long for a table with reservations and the hosts did not seem to care at all. Waited so long for dinner one of our party had to leave. When a manager was called he was exceptionally short and rude. Urban Grub is not the type of place you would expect that type of service. I wrote a note on the bill apologizing to the server and explained it was ll attributed to the Manager.
Very noisy restaurant paying that kind of money should be a comfortable atmosphere especially the seating was bad . It was my wife birthday and she didn’t enjoy herself very disappointed
Enjoyed a full dinner at the oyster bar where we received friendly and attentive service. The oysters were very good, the filet was tender with a nice smokiness and the ribs were good. For the sides, the cuban corn was my favorite with the Mac & Cheese being too mild for my taste and the mash potatoes ho-hum.
Love Urban Grub. Food is great, lots of choices. Their garlic Parmesan grilled oysters are very fresh & flavorful. The Double bone in pork chop is all you need, it’s at least 16oz, well and their Mac & Cheese. Wife had Club Carbonara Rigatoni w/ smoked chicken. Go there, you’ll be a fan.
This has always been one of our goto places especially if we have someone from out of town & our last visit was off so we haven’t been back for about 4 months but we were happily surprised this time...the menu was great, food fantastic, amazing friendly service and great atmosphere. It’s was a very memorable night. Thank you and look forward to dining again real soon
The food was great as usual! This is a pricier restaurant...$15 for a Sangria. The quality and service are great though.
Excellent food in a quaint setting.
Food was not good
Great service. (James) The food was delicious.
Awesome food. Awesome server.
We hadn’t planned to eat out, at least at a restaurant, after visiting a farmers market; but we found ourselves on 12 South. Although Urban Grub ended up being full by the time we had finished, we were able to sneak in early. The table was nicely situated in a bay window, allowing us views both in and out. Additionally conversation was possible without shouting. As to the food and beverage: the wine by the glass were good, but perhaps priced $3-4 per glass more than most restaurants (a Sancerre and a white Bordeaux). We were in a meat mood, so we elected the lamb shank and the double cut pork chop. Both were ginormous and perfectly prepared. The only gripe? Not enough puréed celery root under the shank.
Can’t decide whether the food or the service was the best part of our visit. Had enjoyed Urban Grub for a couple of work dinners, and wanted to share this place with my wife so booked a table for two for our anniversary and they did not disappoint. From the moment we walked in and were wished a happy anniversary from the hostess (due to clicking the special occasion button on open table) the entire staff made our evening very special. Well done Urban Grubb!
Came to Nashville for my husband’s birthday and couldn’t wait to try Urban Grub. We were immediately disappointed when we were seated at a table that was literally placed in the middle of the walkway. Every time someone passed by, my chair got bumped, purse got knocked off my chair or waitstaff had to shimmie by. Our waiter was friendly and offered some great food and wine suggestions. However, halfway through the evening, he disappeared and we barely saw him again the whole evening. Another waiter brought our food out which was cold. I had to send it back to be re-heated. (I have never sent food back at a restaurant). The manager offered no apology much less any kind of compensation. There are so many great restaurants in Nashville, but this one was a disappointment.
Everything was excellent at Urban Grub and I will make another visit. We were a party of two and it was on the expensive side but that can be controlled by the consumer.
Celebrated bday. Waiter was fantastic. Food was good/ok, not great. Very pricey fir the quality.
We really enjoyed it!! The atmosphere was great!! Food and service was outstanding!!
Very disappointed in our second visit there. The food wasn’t fully cooked, our waiter was very intrusive and lacked etiquette, and it definitely wasn’t worth a $200 bill for two people. The waiter shook a beer to see if it was empty, reached across the table with his armpit in our face and forgot to bring drinks. Cramming tables together so close is also very annoying. We shouldn’t have the other chairs right at our backs. We will not be back.
Our waiter, Ryan, made the evening so special. He was absolutely incredible. The food was delightful as well. I cannot say enough good things about the experience!
We had to wait 30 mins for our reservation which was a bummer but after bringing to managers attention we received an apology with 2 drinks and appetizers. Food and waiter were very good. Found the pricing to be a little high.
Wonderful service food was outstanding . When were back in Nashville we will definitely becoming back!
We love visiting Nashville and having dinner at Urban Grub! It is our go-to spot. I would definitely call ahead for reservations. They get packed! Our waitresses were wonderful and full of knowledge. The food...I can’t even explain how delicious the 1/2 Strip is. It just melts in your mouth. The oven baked Mac & Cheese with the Yukon Mashed Potatoes...just do it!! Ask for bacon and cheese in the potatoes. You won’t regret it. We love URBAN GRUB!
Friends in from a Michigan
Enjoyed the all-you-can-eat brunch buffet of seafood, salads, meats & cheese ($47). Delicious oysters and crab! Only disappointment was that I ordered a bottle of Prosecco and was brought the Lindemann sparkling that they use for their mimosas. Wasn’t told about the switch. Truly wanted what I ordered. Would not have ordered the one they opened in place. When I finally realized it and mentioned it to the server, I was told they hadn’t had it for a couple weeks. When I’m paying $29 for Prosecco, you should be pouring me Prosecco. I feel I should have been informed. Very disappointing.
Never fails. Uniquely Nashville. If can find something to like on this menu; you probably shouldn’t go out to eat.
Great all around experience.
Very different experience than prior experience. Food and service were disappointing.
My daughter and I visited Urban Grub this week. We had the - as my daughter called it- ‘the life changing pork chop’. We don’t live in Nashville or have family there, but we will have to make a special trip back just to visit Urban Grub again. Everything was fantastic from the staff to the food to the ambience. I can’t recommend it enough.
Tony was so fun at the oyster bar!!! Thank you for a delicious meal and great staff that took great care of us
Made a reservation and we were sat outside. I was cold. Food was not good. Way too pricey for what I had.
Outstanding. Chefs are sourcing and creating some high quality dishes...You must try the Serbico Swine for one hella time! HA James is the best server you can ask for and THOR in the Butcher shop! PLEASE this restaurant is incredible.
Went for wife’s birthday. Her steak was too tough for her to eat. The server offered another entree but she was set on the steak. The restaurant men’s room urinal overflowed. The floor was wet and the odor was horrible. The manager removed the steak from our bill and gave a complimentary dessert, which was appreciated. Unfortunately, this was not the great experience I had planned for my wife’s birthday.
Received a recommendation from a manager of another restaurant and it was a great one. Best meal we had in the Nashville area. Food was very good and service was outstanding. Lamont was attentive and explained the menu well. Will definitely go back if we end back in Nashville in the future.
