Very comfortable casual experience

Stopped in for a quick bite with a business partner. Clean. Food was good. Had wings, a salad and hoe cake. (gluten free). This was great! The vinegrette was homemade. The salad was unexpectedly good. The hoe cake...made my day. Don't miss that one!

This is not only the best Restaurant in Urbanna, but one of the best in Virginia. The only thing better than the friendly, family-like service, is the homemade food. Everything is made in-house. The She crab soup is the best I've ever had. Everything that comes off the smoker is amazing, with the smoked Turkey being my,favorite. I highly recommend... More

My husband and I ate breakfast here & it was delicious. I had french toast and country ham and hubby had an omelet with all kinds of stuff in it. I also purchased some wine, apple butter and jelly from the little store attached. I would highly recommend this place.

We were camping and ventured into town for fireworks during the 4th of July. We had a large group and expected to wait for a large enough table as this is a very small place. It was worth the wait. The staff is super friendly and the food was delicious. There was something to please everyone even the kids. We... More

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 back.

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
