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 did not disappoint. We entertained new friends that moved to Nashville several months ago and are in the hospitality industry. They loved it.

We made a reservation for the patio, and were seated in front of the fire, which was perfect. The service was prompt, attentive, and courteous. But the food was mediocre at best. The lobster/crab cakes were fairly tasteless, the wedge salad had clumps of egg salad which didn’t elevate it, the beets weren’t tart - almost watery, and the mac and cheese was really dry. I would have thought it was hard to mess up beet salad with burrata, and mac and cheese, but I would be wrong. I will say Ive eaten there before and the food was fine.

I cannot even express how much we enjoyed everything about Urban Grub. Bernadette and Mary Beth were outstanding. The food was off the charts, absolutely amazing! I cannot recommend this place enough. The bartender at our hotel recommended this place and what a great recommendation it was. There are so many places with great reviews here in Nashville but next time we visit we will definitely be back. Thank you for the amazing experience!!!’

We made a reservation in advance and we’re seated at a table in the bar. They had sports playing on the tv’s and THE BEST 90’s hip hop playlist booming through the speakers.

Bennett and Heather took care of us and the service was excellent.

We had the Brussel Sprouts for an appetizer that were unbelievably good. They had gluten/grain free rolls, which was a very welcome surprise.

I had a few sides for my meal and my husband had the steak and biscuits. We then had a gluten free dessert that was amazing. We found the chef is celiac, so I felt very comfortable with the recommendations given my plethora of allergies.

We enjoyed every bite, and will definitely be back next time we are in town.

Our reservation was at 6:45. We weren't seated until 7:20. Our food did not arrive until 8:15. Although drinks and apps were comped, our friends had just arrived in town and their whole evening in Nashville was spent waiting at this restaurant.

I’ll start by saying when I rate the service, this does not include our server. She was delightful and attentive.
We were seated at 845pm. Several things our party ordered were no longer available. At 10pm, our food had still not arrived. I spoke to the manager, and our food arrived moments later. I wanted to love this place, and we sat by the fire on the patio, which was lovely. But overall we were disappointed. I’ve given most restaurants a lot of leeway lately due to staffing challenges, but this was a hit of a fail. They did bring us free dessert. The food was good as well and they do have an extensive wine selection.

Just simply great food and great service. The double cut pork chop was simply the best I’ve had. Street and shrimp/grits also were excellent. Our server (Daryl) attentive and friendly but not excessively present.

The ambiance & service was outstanding. Most of the food was excellent. I would not recommend the ribs. They were dry and chewy. The prices were high but comparable to other restaurants in the area. Our server Victor was outstanding.

This is legitimately one of the best meals I have had. You have to open up the wallet a little but damn. Had a great cocktail to start and it only got better. I could have meals out of the oysters and charcuterie from their butcher on site but had a great steak and my wife’s pork chop was as unreal. Casual but nice. This is a must hit every time we are in Nashville now.

Great service and tasty food.
But I just wish they gave ma a bit more generous helping of my seafood soup (Cioppino) :(. Medium size bowl (with only 1 shrimp) with some scallops and a few mussels and a few pieces of potato. FOR $ 36.00! Urban Grub can do better than this.

We had the best time! Our servers Kaylee and Joe were wonderful and super friendly and took amazing care spoiling us! We were visiting from out of town so it was going to likely be our only chance to dine here and it did not disappoint. Everything we ate was incredible and the service was spectacular. We loved our date night! Thank you, Urban Grub.
