usually a GREAT place. Good food, traditional American and Italian. However, the last time was a busy night and could tell the wait staff, bar and cooks were not staffed... should have left, but stayed and the Italian Sausage dish is usually Graziano but tonight it was plain burger with spices like hot pepper seeds, etc. Not so good.

This was a fun Friday dinner, though very crowded. People were waiting about an hour for their table. We had a reservation, but still had a wait of about 15 minutes. But the staff were very friendly, the food was yummy, the bar service quick. I ordered the Hawaiian ribeye, which was very tender and nicely marinated and grilled. The... More

Visited on the recommendation of a friend. Awesome menu with American fare. I had the Fire Shrimp (shrimp with chipotle jalapeño butter sauce), which did not disappoint. Full bar and TVs in the lounge to watch the game.

I am a fan of the Urban Grill for lunch, having been there several times. The vegetable melt sandwich is very good as is the tortilla soup and the salads are generally above average. They also have some great martinis and appetizer options. For these reasons, and because it is not far from home, I suggested The Urban Grill to... More

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
