My husband and I were visiting family...first his dad's side, then his mom's. We had a chance to stop and eat, just the two of us, in order to decompress and have a mini-date. It took us a while to find an open restaurant but we were really happy to stumble upon Urban Grill. Our waiter was very friendly and... More

I had dinner here a couple of times recently and really enjoyed the food. Urban Grill is just a couple of miles south of I-80 if you are traveling through Des Miones. It's really worth the time to avoid some fast food joint. Service was excellent and the wine list very adequate for a medium end spot.

I've been here a number of times and have always had a good experience. It's good location for lunch or dinner. They have a lot of good sandwiches and burgers for lunch, along with a number of excellent pasta dishes. Their dinner menu is more expansive and includes a wide variety of American dishes. You're sure to find something you... More

Our ladies visited this establishment for lunch. The restaurant was noisy, we waited over an hour for our food, which was average and we found the prices high for the service and quality of food.

I have eaten at the Urban Grill many times. The service is great once you enter the premises and you usually have the choice of eating on the patio, in the relaxed atmosphere of the bar, or in a separate room which is more formal than the bar area, which should be expected. I have never had a bad experience... More

This is a nice quiet restaurant with a great cozy atmosphere, especially in winter by the fireplace. Don't miss the Rarebit Burger - this is an open face burger with a delicious cheese sauce with just a little kick to it. The burger was cooked as requested and has a great flavor. The sweet potato fries are great, too. Friends... More

Decided at the last minute to eat at Urban Grill this past weekend. It was a good decision. The place was hopping, so we had a short wait, while we enjoyed a glass of wine. The restaurant offers good options for wine. The menu offers a wide variety of options, I've never been disappointed. We had salmon this visit and... More

We were traveling through the area and staying at a local hotel and needed a place to eat. Our hotel recommended this place so we thought we would try it. We ate at the bar so we could watch the football game. We had the seafood quesadilla which was very tasty. I had the lobster macaroni and cheese which was... More
