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.

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.

The entire experience was amazing. We were in town for a weekend getaway and stumbled upon this gem when looking for something new to try. The food was some of the best we have had in Nashville.

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!

Food was really great! Service was really good too. Music didn’t seem to fit with the ambiance and noise level was a bit loud. We were seated out on the patio.

Were locals, everybody knows that this is the best place in the city. And I have food allergies and this is one of the few places that gets it. So, I rate them a 6 star lol

The only thing I’d say is how I felt like we were “pushed out”... as soon as we signed our check... the hostess tried taking our drinks (which weren’t empty) and standing near our table. It just felt like she was rushing us out. We spent $300 in a 1.5 hour; the least they could’ve done was exit us in a friendly way.

The food was average to overcooked. Service was wonderful but not enough to overcome overcooked tuna and ribs. The grits were too loose for my taste.

I’ve been there several times and the service has always been exceptional. The service was fair at best. Took us 15 to 20 minutes after we sat down before anyone even if knowledged us. Drink took almost 30 minutes to bring to the table. Waiter seemed completely on interested.

Amazing restaurant. However, it was for our anniversary and I purposely told them it was. So I was at least expecting someone to just say happy anniversary to us..... that didn’t happen. But that’s just details that would have made it over the moon. Other than that food, service and ambiance was great! Pork chops 🤤 to die for, as well as the brussel sprouts. Oh and the fire place makes it ultra romantic. Would definitely go back. Maybe not as an anniversary, but maybe their brunch ! Or girls night out!
