We had Sunday brunch. Our server Otis was amazing ! Very entertaining and on top of it !
Our only problem was the heat. It was really uncomfortable.
We had ordered the same dishes before but didn't enjoy them as much this time.
Everything else was great as usual.

Food and service were excellent! Previous dining experiences were also very positive. However, it was very hot and humid the evening we dined and we were seated on the patio. My daughter who is visibly pregnant was also in our party. Our initial reaction was negative; but there were overhead fans and as it turned out, it might have been cooler where we were than inside as there appeared to be an issue with the air conditioning. Based our our initial disdain, it appeared that the hostess told a manager and someone quickly followed up to ensure we were okay. We appreciated their attention, but in the future, it might be good to check with the party to see if they are okay with a patio table given the extreme heat!

Great atmosphere, great waiter, all music types as its in Nashville and funny as well. Cooked my steak wrong, I did not really complain but they insisted that they do it again. I have eaten in restaurants all around the world and was impressed with this one. Would definitely recommend a visit. A lot of people with beards dining the night we were there for some reason.

Went to try it out with a friend and had a great time. Had a wonderful server that made great recommendations. The asparagus is wonderful, the edamame was goood but nothing to write home about. And the double cut porkchop feeds three easily, it's so big!

The food was amazing!! And we will definitely go back! Despite making reservations we were seated outside on a very warm night and weren't given the option to dine inside. The patio area was quite nice, though still rather loud - however we had to continually swat at flies...
Other than not recognizing our bug battles, the waitstaff was tremendous and again - the food, the drinks, the donut dessert - were some the best we've had in Nashville!

Very enjoyable evening. We were seated promptly and greeted by KK our server. Our server explained the internal workings of the restaurant and how they enhanced the menu. Our dinner was exceptional. We also met the general manager who helped us with a very good and affordable wine

Went for brunch. Everything was good except the service was a little slow. We were not checked on after food came to table and had to hunt down our waiter. The only food disappointment was the fried oyster sandwich. Overall though we had a good time and enjoyed the experience.

If you have not had the double cut pork chops from Urban Grub, then you truly do not know just how good a pork chop can be! The portions are huge, the collard greens and cheese grits are perfect compliments. We simply had no room left for desert. Sarah was an outstanding waitress and conversationalist. Also, where else can you buy a "Pork Slap" beer?

We had 11am reservations for brunch with a childhood friend and her family from New York. We arrived at 11 and at 12:15 were told that our order had not been put in yet. To his credit, the manager came by to offer drinks and dessert. We asked for a discount instead which he said he would do. 4 of the 5 meals came out about 20 min later and the last one about 15 min after that. The French dip bennie was full of gristle and over cooked although I was told it would be cooked to order. I could not even cut it with the steak knife. It was highly recommended as the favorite item on the brunch menu by the server. I asked to have the horseradish sauce on the side however it was on the dish and I got cold, solidified hollandaise sauce on the side instead. At this point I was too embarrassed to bring it up in front of my out of town guests (their first visit here) so I let it go. The waiter, although bey nice, was more interested in being a stand up comic rather than a server. I do applaud the manager for the discount however no one came back to check and ask about the food. At this time I would not recommend Sunday brunch at Urban Grub.

This place is amazing! We went for dinner with a party of 7 and had excellent service. The ambiance is great, the food even better! The shrimp and grits is out of this world. We like this place so much we went back for brunch a few days later and were not disappointed. This is a definite find in the 12 South neighborhood.

We had dinner for the second time at Urban Grub. The first time we had the most amazing service. This time was an "off" night. Our waiter, an elderly gentleman, was odd and mostly ignored us. Food was great. Restaurant so loud we couldn't hear each other. The manager was wonderful and attentive so we will give Urban Grub another shot.

There was a slight snafu with our reservation, the manager worked it out and comped us an appetizer. Not necessary but very nice of him and we appreciated it. That sort of customer service seems rare these days. Urban Grub gets high marks.

My daughter who lives in Nashville led us there. Perhaps one of the best (and friendliest ) service cultures anywhere. We always notice that long before the first bite and it influences the entire experience.
Then a great menu. Not a boring dish on it. Our group had the gamut from trout and salmon to steak and pork and also amazing shrimp and grits--and ask for some andouille sausage as well.
Delightful cocktails and nice wine list. Too full for dessert but split a gluten free cake with soaked figs....very good.
So just a delight that exceeded our espectations, led off by GM, wait team Nef and Mataya.

Urban Grub has been a favorite of mine since my wife and I relocated to Nashville last year. We frequent this establishment approx. once a month. When we have guests, we take them to Urban Grub. The seafood is amazingly fresh, the cured meats are nothing short of spectacular, and the service is impeccable. This was my second time eating the shrimp and grits. Our waited recommended adding House made Andouille sausage, what a great decision that was! I could rave all day about the food, drinks and atmosphere, but everyone should try it themselves! Thank you again Urban Grub for an excellent dinner.

My husband and I came to Urban Grub for our 5 year anniversary and we had the most amazing dining experience. All of the wait staff were so incredible and attentive and they made us feel so special. We were even greeted with two glasses of champagne in celebration of our anniversary. We had a great table outside right by the fireplace and enjoyed a delicious meal. We will definitely be back next time we are in Nashville!

I have been to UG multiple times before, but my most recent experience was by far the best I have ever had. Our waiter was very pleasant, the food and wine were wonderful, and we had a great spot out on the patio.

I've been here a few times. Usually solid spot for food, wine, drinks, etc... Was there last Friday and everything was good except for the ribeye. I ordered it medium and it came out super tough. I've ordered it before and I must have received the last piece of meat or something, but it wasn't the normal quality I expect from an establishment where my bill normally is close to $300 every time. Took it home to go and made great steak and eggs the next morning though...

Everything we had was delicious!! Highly recommend the Pork Fries. Vanilla Bean Donuts with bacon ice cream for dessert - over the top, off the hook! And ask for Otis to be your server - best ever!! Thanks Otis for a memorable evening and great recommendations!

Food was excellent as usual - The 4 of us started with the andouille sausage and pork fries. For entrees, 3 of us got the Shrimp and Grits, and 1 person got the double cut pork chop. Food was excellent and service was good. We sat outside and while it was hot out the covered patio and fans kept us comfortable while we ate.

Got to sit on back patio which was beautiful and so fun! Much better than inside which was kind of loud. We really enjoyed the pretty patio and the fans felt nice even in the heat. Our food was fantastic. The andouille sausage appetizer was so tasty and all our meals were very delicious. Highly recommend!

Our first visit to Urban Grub. Was recommended by friends. Would definitely return and would love to sit on the patio next time. Loved the charcuterie plate and the fresh heirloom tomato appetizer from the stand across the street. Stopped by there on our way out to take some home!
