Comfy Place with a Trend

I had drinks here on my trip. I was actually staying at the Hilton and the service was great and it was an interesting looking place.

Went twice for breakfast. The buffet is overpriced at around 25 bucks for adults. Kids are 6 bucks, which I feel is fair. Lots of food options including breads, fresh squeezed vegetable/fruit juice, pastries, eggs, French toast, potatoes, salad bar, breakfast meats, lunch meats, olives. You can order pancakes and/or omelets. The buffet eggs are soupy but they can make... More

My daughter, Kimi, and I ate here last Wednesday night before a play at ACT and enjoyed our meal very much. If you are seated near the bar, ask to move because it gets really loud. We were seated in a booth well away from the noise and could easily talk at a normal volume. I ordered a delicious "blind... More

Poor service, over cooked food and then expecting me to give a 15% tip was outrageous I crossed it out and only tipped 5%. I ate sandwiches from Starbucks rest of the time. The Bell Boys were very good and I tipped them.

The food is good, simple and tasty. Not a huge menu, but friendly staff and a nice atmosphere make this an easy choice for a low key and casual dinner. Not for special occasions, but great after a day's shopping!

Good selection of local beer on tap and wine by the glass or bottle. Food was good. Filled up on a couple of appetizers rather than a main.Can be busy in the evening. Bar available for drinks.

Basically, if you are a barbarian like me, then you do NOT belong here. My experience here will be undeniably uncomfortable. I channeled my inner-barbaric nature sitting at the center of attention with my chicken wings P.S. The chicken wings were great.

We shared crab Mac and cheese if I remember correctly and it was delicious! Our server was very helpful with recommendations and knew the menu well. We shared a chocolate cake with caramel and it was a real treat!

Had a good meal here, but nothing extraordinary. I had the mac and cheese with crab. It was good but parts of it were a little lukewarm. My husband had the roast chicken which was very good. Only bad part was the broccolini on the side which was virtually cold. Best part of our meal was our very helpful and... More

The Urban Tavern is where breakfast, lunch, and dinner are served as well as being a great gathering place for happy hour. It is generally packed, a testimony to the quality.
