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.

Food was excellent, and the staff went way above and beyond because we needed to modify our reservation by 30 minutes. They made it happen with aplomb.

The noise level was high.

Our 2nd dinner in 4 days. Shared the pork chop on both occasions. Best we've ever had. Had server Ryan twice....informed, engaging and a real pro.

I read a lot of reviews that talk about service and wait times for tables and often ignore them - it’s about the food for me. However, this visit was a bad service and food experience.

Made reservations for 9, seated at 935, hostess changed our rez in Open Table to 930 to make it seem they didn’t sit us THAT late (got a notification they did it), waiter greeted us at our table at 945, drinks at the table 955. I know all these times because it really felt that long. I am sympathetic that service levels are tough at the moment due to the pandemic and staffing shortages, however, the taste of the $$$ food didn’t help.

I will say once our waiter did get to us, he did his very best and I don’t feel he’s to blame for the experience. However, 35 min to be seated at a nice, upscale restaurant is not acceptable to me. Cost me an additional $30 for my babysitter. People can laugh or say that’s petty, but it’s the truth. Hard earned night out and while we tried to make the most of it, it cost more than it was worth.

Ultimately, to spend $125+ on a meal for 2, I’d expect top notch flavor and service. Urban Grub was not able to deliver either of those things on the night we visited. It’s a shame too because the average review seemed high and well worth a try. Unfortunately, with so many dining options in Nashville (fine dining or otherwise), I cannot recommend Urban Grub to friends, family or colleagues and I would not plan to return.

Great atmosphere. Great food. Great time. Our server was great and attentive. The host sat us about 2-3 mins after we arrived. The food was really good and just enough. We had a great time.

Excellent service from the moment we walked in the door. My parents were visiting from NC and I wanted to bring them to one of my favorite restaurants here in Nashville. We could not have asked for a better server than Bernadette. She exemplifies exceptional customer care and always checked on us. We did not have to ask for her or wonder where she was- because she gave us VIP service the entire time we were seated.

Wow - one of the best dining experiences in Nashville! Everything about this place is amazing. James was our server and was fantastic. The Andouille Sausage appetizer was fantastic, the steaks were some of the best we EVERY had and of course the bourbon selection and old fashioneds were over the top!

Seated in the bar section.
Love Urban Grub but hate to be seated in the inside bar area for dinner for special occasion.
Bar so fun for drinks but less than optimal for dinner.

Appetizers and drinks good. My Steak was undercooked...raw. Left the sides at the table. My husband ate dinner by himself. By the time steak came back sides cold. Blood juices on the plate. Didn’t rest enough looked unappetizing. Tasted good. Husband dish excessively salty couldn’t eat most of it. We will never go again. Didn’t comp any part of the meal. Spent over $200 on a very disappointing meal!!

My experience was a bit mediocre this time around. Usually the food is up to par and service is excellent but I guess it was just a boring Tuesday. The food wasn’t as good as it used to be. The charcuterie was mostly fatty chewy pieces, like I would have had a better choice just buying my own charcuterie from Kroger. The sides have gone downhill as well. That poblano corn pudding is the worst! And those tandoori carrots were just sad chunks with greasy spices. Such a shame.

Our first meal in Nashville during our honeymoon road trip and the highlight of our week!! Exceptional service, incredible food and the perfect atmosphere for a romantic evening. Bennett and Heather were our servers and couldn’t have been more knowledgeable or attentive to our needs. We started our meal by trying out a variety of oysters, the options were expansive and all the ones we tried were fantastic and fresh! My husband ordered the pork chops and peaches and said it was the best meal he had ever eaten. I had the tilefish that was a special that night and was blown away by the flavor and impeccable cookery. Additionally, the cocktails were terrific and the house biscuits were buttery perfection that rounded out the meal. Our experience at Urban Grub was everything I could have hoped for and more. We WILL be back the next time we travel to Nashville!
