The Urban Grill caters to business lunches which means they take a little longer to get the food on the table. Their selection of entrees is good and I have always been satisfied with the portions and presentation.

I almost regret writing this review only because I feel it's a best kept secret. However, once again I wasn't disappointed with our choice of the "Urban Grill". The restaurant has a calming, cool feel with wood paneling, darker lighting and the fireplace. The choices on the menu are plentiful with many drink options as well. I would be remiss... More

Extensive menu, cool drink options and quality wines. Eat on the patio if it's nice outside or by one of the fireplaces inside if not.

Not much to look at from the outside, looks like a fast foodie breakfast place probably built the building, unless you pay attention to a fleet of local cars parked over flowing in front of it. You walk in to a cool, kind of warmly lighted men's clubby classy speak easy almost sort of feel. It is classy, and cool,... More

My family and I stopped here for dinner and while it seemed crowded, we got seated quickly. We ordered dinners with salads all with blue cheese dressing. The lettuce was okay, but no better than any side salad and really runny not very blue cheese dressing. The entrees were really good: Chicken Picatta, Pasta Carbonera with a substitute of asparagus... More
