A pleasant surprise

Restaurants come and go in Urbanna, and most aren't memorable. Went to Something Different on a cold snowy day to combat cabin fever and was glad I did. The ambience fit the place, and the food, although neighborhood bar and grill fare, was good and creative (well at least different). I'd go... read more

A well varied menu unlike the majority of local restuarants and a wait staff who's pride for the establishment shines through. My wife returned yesterday to simply revisit the menu and the attentive greater welcomed her back recalling exactly where our family sat...a good thing I think? Something Different has Bodacious Butts which is code for fantastic BBQ but don't... More

We've been going to Something Different for YEARS and we love it EVERY TIME! I still haven't found a breakfast better than their Eggs Mornay, and the Brisket Melt is another favorite! You will not be disappointed! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE this place!

OK, the only reason this doesn't get 5 stars is it's a fairly low keyed place without too many amenities and limited wine selection. But so what - this is a family restaurant not the linen covered table venue. The service is excellent and the food just delicious. We ate dinner there, a party of five family members. I had... More

There arent many places to visit in Urbanna but I decided to stop in and have a bit before meeting up with friends. They do have quite a selection of food I'd never heard of and it was all delicious. The barista made the most delicious lemonade I've ever had. Seriously send me the recipe! Nothing insanely unique or different... More

I have been wanting to come here to eat for sometime. I got the ribs and they were amazing!! Mac and Cheese was wonderful! Lots of items on the menu. Can't wait to go back and try some more items!

This is a fabulous family restaurant or you could easily turn it into a date night out with great food and music. Some top points are, fresh baked breads, homemade ice cream, smoked meats, etc.... A MUST TRY!!!

First off I'd change the name to Something Special because thats what it is. From the moment my wife, daughter & I arrived for lunch the staff was amazing. Learning my daughter is a vegetarian the receptionist (very familiar with the lifestyle) combed the menu for possibilities. My daughter settled on the wonderful Mac & Cheese & vegetables. The waitress... More

Great omelets, generous portions. Many choices & some traditional southern fare. Fresh baked raisen bread added to the meal. Server very attentive to the table & we were a party of 6. Casual atmosphere. Visit to our table by the owner.

Its always so busy I kinda forgot about it. We country folk aint used to having to wait to sit down. Good food though worth the wait. A little noisy. There really is a lot of different stuff. I like the chocolate ice cream with hot peppers.
