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.

    This is our third trip to urban grub until tonight it has been our favorite date night experience. We always go all out and order the tomahawk aged steak and it’s usually the best piece of meat we have ever ate. Tonight however was sub par. Our first steak came very charred and burnt on the outside and was not cut for table dining. We mentioned it to the server he immediately took it and was getting us a new one. The manager stopped by as well as assured us that they would make a new one low and slow for us and we said we wouldn’t mind waiting. When it arrived very quickly it was less charred but smaller than what we ordered (46oz) the table beside us ordered a 40oz and that was much larger than ours which led us to believe they gave us the smaller steak. The steak itself was very hard to chew and cut. we frequent urban grub because their steak you can practically cut with a fork and it melts in your mouth. Also to add our experience was interrupted by a loud fire alarm and the fire department showing up. It may have been and off night for the restaurant but too many mistakes at our table from (small) had to ask for bread, being forgotten about to (large) mix up and miscommunication with the tomahawk. We still paid the $300 bill without complaint, however I cannot see myself coming back again to pay that amount for the poor quality I was given tonight.

    Was very disappointed with the size of the baked oysters still same price but very small maybe nickel sized. Memphis dry ribs were extremely salty and did not have a dry rub but a wet bbq sauce on it.

    This is the go-to place I recommend when wanting a high-end meal that is a fun environment and not too pretentious. The appetizers do not miss and I recommend the crab beignets! I actually grew up hating fish and I am obsessed with these! The menu literally has everything when it comes to high-end american but it also has a great burger and ribs. It allows you to do you and enjoy great food. Also, the staff is wonderful.

    This restaurant exceeded our expectations. We highly recommend the butter pecan donuts, andouille sausage (spicy), and the feta brussel sprouts. See if you can request James, a 10-year-veteran server, who clearly loves his job. While I wouldn’t fill up on the biscuits that came out as the bread service, they were unbelievably delicious and piping hot.

    We were there in a heat wave. The air conditioning could not keep up and it was not comfortable in the restaurant. The tables are very close and there was an extremely loud table that wasn't close to us, but was disruptive the whole time we were there. The food was good but not great. We got filet, wagyu filet, salmon, shrimp and chicken. Nothing stood out everything was good but not great. The popovers they give you with biscuits were the only outstanding thing about the place. It was pricey, crowded and very noisy with standard food.

    Went with friends who had highly recommended the restaurant, first time for us. Initial interaction with hostess was totally unacceptable. We were initially ignored and then treated rudely. Fortunately an astute young gentleman noticed us alone by the hostess stand in the nearly empty restaurant and offered to help. It turned out he was our server, Cade. He provided excellent service and management comped a shared dessert which was a nice touch.

    We were worn out waiting for service. Never quite figured out who was the waiter. We would have ordered more drinks, appetizers,etc. We just wanted our dinner and leave. We believe we were unserved because we were not dressed up, Had a busy afternoon. no time to change. I suggest the Management read the Book the Millionaire Next Door. Best wishes

    The food is amazing - it’s too bad the inadequate service ruins the experience. We were assigned three waitstaff to our table snd barely saw one of them. Couldn’t get anyone’s attention for a coffee refilll, condiments, a take home box or to pay the check. This will definitely cost us a second visit

    Celebrated my 13 year anniversary at Urban Grub. Staff were excellent. Waiters used a team approach which I loved. Complimentary champagne toast was a plus. Food was great. Those crab beignets OMG. Ambiance and overall atmosphere was busy but enjoyable. I would definitely return to try more entrees on the menu.

    Had my birthday dinner here with my parents when they were in town. The food was delicious, service was great, the only downside was we were expecting to sit inside and they seated us outside. It wasn’t terrible but that should definitely be part of the booking options so you know what you’re getting upfront

    The charcuterie selections were awesome. Loved their presentation. I had the scallops and they were excellent. My dining partner had the Poulet Rouge and it was way to spicy and very dry. She couldn’t eat it. Service was attentive but loud. They gave us a nice box of sweets to go. I would go again.

    Pre-graduation dinner. Our server (blanking but originally from Connecticut) greeted us immediately and promptly got us started with drinks and apps. He made great suggestions and really knew about each item. Our dinner entrees were delicious but the highly recommended Double Pork Chop was not only a VERY generous portion but cooked perfectly. We were so surprised when our waiter brought us a shareable cheesecake with peanut brittle to celebrate our Vandy graduate. We left happy and stuffed. Thank you for a great meal and look forward to coming back soon.

    Normally I would rate UG 5 stars, since the food and service are both well above par. On this Sunday evening, however, our table was in the smallish room just short of the private event space. There was a birthday party with people shouting to be heard and our space was turned into essentially a wide hallway with people coming and going. I enjoyed my spicy pork shank and Malbec, but couldn’t hear most of the conversation at our table for four. Just so the management knows: it’s bad business to kiss off 5 tables of diners in order to have an event space filled with people who couldn’t care less whether they are disturbing other diners.
