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.

Visiting Nashville for the weekend and found this gem of a restaurant. I dine out at a lot and appreciate good food and service. Not too many people wear masks in Nashville I found out very quickly. When I entered the restaurant I asked for the “safest” table possible. They very quickly directed me to a room that was empty and away from anyone. So appreciated! The food was sincerely so good! And Victor our server was wonderful! The most relaxing experience dining out I’ve had in months! Would highly recommend.

Went for néw years eve. It was not fine dining. The duck was very tough and undercooked. The appetizers were good but the lemon meringue and the chocolate cake were not. I think this place is great for splitter at the bar and for Sunday brunch

The pork chop was probably the best piece of meat that so have ever had. My husband had an excellent steak but agreed that my pork chop was the star of the evening. Sides and desserts great too but nothing compared to the pork chop.

Waited a long time for valet in rain. Inside was jam-packed. Front desk hostesses were a bit snobbish for the setting. No seating at bar at all, not even a gap to request a drink, so we snagged a random server to ask and were told we'd come in "the wrong door". There are only two doors, so not sure what that meant. We got checked in for our 7pm reservation and stood in the middle of the floor with our drinks. Had to give cell phone numbers to be told when table was ready via text, so had to hold phone AND drinks which was crazy. Very, VERY loud in bar and dining room, so vibrate setting was the only way to get a message. When seated, our server was great, but the food was not. Partner could barely pull dry, overdone lobster tail from singed shell but accompanying risotto was undercooked. Dessert was okay. Peanut butter cheesecake serving was attractively garnished but ridiculously massive -- seemingly a foot long and two inches wide, but not impressive for flavor. The banana pudding concept was not even as tasty as one you'd find at a solid Southern potluck.
UG seems more about pretense than actual southern "finer dining" and certainly NOT hospitality. (Again, the exception was our server, so we want to make that abundantly clear.) We'd call it a "nouveau-Nashville" experience more than a pleasant evening of food and drink.

Caleb was so informative of the Christmas menu, how it worked, the entrees and upgrades. So much fun, was like he was part of our group. Drinks and food were delicious and we will be back to sit with Caleb again.

Was very excited to try this since everyone raves about it but we were very underwhelmed with the food. My boyfriend’s steak was extremely undercooked and I got the shrimp and grits and the grits seemed undercooked as well. The service and atmosphere was great though.

Our party was seated in a beautiful back room located next to an outdoor patio with a nice fireplace. Restaurant very well decorated for the holidays. Service and food were great. This place has an interesting menu that mixes familiar dishes (steak, oysters, ribs) with more unusual items. The pork shank special the night we went was very good. Also a great wine list. How many places have a good Alsatian white by the glass?

Enjoyed what I think might have been our sixth time celebrating my husband’s birthday at Urban Grub. It’s decorated beautifully at Christmas. We sat in the patio area that they turn into an inside room. It has heaters and a fireplace. There were times of a chill coming through but not bad. We ordered woodfire oysters to start with. They were on the saltier side. I had my the shrimp and grits which is always my go to. It was yummy! My husband had a ribeye cooked perfectly. Our waitress was super friendly, but a little forgetful. She forgot about my second drink and my son’s honey mustard. When she realized she forgot the honey mustard she offered to bring him fresh fries which was very thoughtful. Overall it’s one of the best restaurants in Nashville and always a place to go for special occasions.

We went for an early dinner.
We were seated in the patio which had been tented and included a heater. Was nice that we were seated in front of the Christmas tree.
We had ribs, and 2 side dishes...but the best part of the meal was the tiny rolls and cheddar popovers with strawberry preserves,, that the waiter brought out before our entree. Our waiter was most attentative and knowledgeable. The Banana Pudding pie was a little disappointing.
