Our group of eight did not go here on Friday night as the live entertainment can be a bit loud. My wife and I did go on Saturday night, and we are very happy that we did so. We had checked earlier in the day and knew reservations were only made for groups of eight of more, so we arrived... More

This is my go to restaurant when I'm anywhere near Urbanna. The food is always great, and the staff are helpful and quick. They get very busy during the summer, but it is definitely worth the wait, if there is one. They also have a large selection of beer, and have some pre-packaged food for sale. Definitely a must if...

My husband and I dined here this past Thursday, June 4th. He had the crab cakes and I opted for the Virginia Muffaletta sandwich. Both were outstanding and fresh. We also had one beignet between the two of us just to try one. This was also terrific. Everything we had here was excellent - absolutely no filler in the crab... More

This place is where Awful Arthurs used to be. The decor is very nice, the food is phenomenal and there is a huge amount of craft brews to choose from.

The service was prompt and efficient. We really enjoyed our entrees. My wife had the crab cakes and I the Philly steak sandwich. I savored every bite. The seasoning was great and the roll, freshly baked. As an extra treat, we enjoyed an ice cream cone for dessert. Best of all, the prices were very reasonable, a great value. We... More

It was a little crowded when we arrived around 1:00 for lunch. We were seated right away, but it took a little while for the waitress to come. She apologized since they were crowded, and we were ready to order. The food came out fairly quickly, we both had the soft shell crab sandwich on rye. Sides of house salad... More

We visited Something Different after reading the Trip Advisor reviews and left a little disappointed. When we entered we were greeted by a very friendly hostess who seated us at a nice table by the front window. We noticed that the restaurant was very busy and the atmosphere and décor were both interesting and pleasant. Our waitress soon appeared to... More
