We frequent "The Urban" a lot-both for lunch and dinner, and never had a disappointing experience. Wait staff are always efficient and friendly. Food quality matches some of the best in town. Prime rib is the "bomb" and the chicken carbonara is superb. Bar are is nice and the patio also nice, but gets the western sun baking you in... More

WE sat in the bar area on high tables. A most pleasant ambience. Wait staff was friendly and courteous. We both ordered the trout with asparagus and were very satisfied with the quality and preparation.

My husband and I meet here about once a month after work. We enjoy sitting at one of the high-top tables in the bar area. Tonight watched some of the Olympic games. Great drinks and appetizers. We usually get the fish tacos which are blackened and spiced nicely. Everyone is very friendly and wait staff is super.

I have eaten here for years and love it. However, the owner recently opened a new resturant and sent all the employees to the new resturant. I just went this week, and the waitstaff, and food is not up to par.

Great atmosphere, great waiter. Never felt rushed or unwelcome. Had the blackened shrimp Alfredo and it was absolutely fabulous. They also have a lot of great gluten free options

We ate at the Urban Grill after a long day of car travel. We stayed at a nearby hotel and wanted some place with table service. We try to stay away from chains in new towns, so we took a chance on Urban Grill. We were glad we did! My fish tacos were well-seasoned and tasty. My husband ordered the... More

Very nice restaurant, found it by chance. Waiter was very friendly and attentive. They had something for everyone, I had the tilapia recommended by our waiter. Outstanding. A little pricey for lunch, but we left full and satisfied.

The food was outstanding and was surpassed by only the staff. We stop here on our way to South Dakota and again when we returned

What a awesome little gem of a restaurant. The beff bordelaise was awesome. The service was very good. This is a medium priced restaurant with excellent food.
