The Best Oyster Bar in Nashville
So, I’ve been hearing about Urban Grub for some time now so I decided it was time to give them a try and I have to say that 3 forks is a fair rating and here’s why:
The service was impeccable and I can actually say I was blown away by the level of service I received from each and every person I came into contact with at Urban Grub. The glasses were never empty, plates are cleared in a timely fashion, and food was delivered even quicker. I sat at the bar because it was unusually crowded but the bartender was extremely helpful and he guided me through each menu item and made fantastic suggestions that not only would be delicious to me but would also not make me bankrupt. I really appreciate when a server gives me their honest opinion and does not just try to get me to spend the most money, while the up-selling was there it was not over the top which I greatly appreciated. I will say Urban Grub has a proficient and better than average staff in a city where poor service is almost the norm.
I’ve heard so much about their Oyster bar and now I understand why Urban Grub’s Oyster bar is the talk of Nashville. The oysters were so fresh that I had to order a second round after my dinner which I had the shrimp and grits and I can honestly say that was the best damn shrimp and grits I have ever tasted. The grits melted in my mouth, the shrimp were so sweet and savory and the meal could be easily be complemented with a glass of wine or well drink. If you do not eat raw oysters, be sure to try their wood fried oysters (garlic Parmesan is my choice).
All in all, I would definitely recommend Urban Grub if you are looking for a fun night out where the servers actually care about the guests and the food is incredible. Not only that but the atmosphere and the neighborhood of Urban Grub makes it an incredibly unique experience to anything else in Nashville. I will definitely be returning and next time I will be bringing my hubby with me.
