I am a local and a foodie. I do not typically drink alcohol with meals as I look forward to savoring my meal. My husband loves barbecue and barbecue sauce probably runs through his veins. I found this restaurant and we were excited to try it. We went in on a Wednesday evening. When we arrived, the place was full... More

We celebrated my sister's birthday here. The staff was nice and friendly, and Matt was an amazing bartender!

The atmosphere is country chic! Our waiter, Charles, was menu savvy and provided great service. I had crab cakes (2) that were all crab, no filler, rolled in panko then deep fried with grilled brocoli and hot (spicy) hoe cakes. Susan had dill rubbed salmon. Food was great!

Totally the #1! Had house dry rubbed salmon & fully loaded crab cakes. All crab no filler. Charles was uber great on the service too. Expect a wait on the weekends but so worth it.!

I usually don't like soft shell crab sandwiches because the crab gets lost in the bread but this was one of the best. Plenty of crab and a bun to hold it together. Also ordered grilled broccoli very good. Others ordered the pork sandwich and pork plate. I felt like my was the specialty plate. I was pleasantly surprised. Also... More

We tried to go to the Works since they are rated higher on here, but the were closed. And I have to say, it was a delightful surprise!! My husband and I... More

Urbanna’s modest main street offers a couple of good dining options. Something Different was highly rated and didn’t disappoint. Service was friendly and attentive. Their crab cakes were very good…fried, but meaty. They have very good pulled pork…the BBQ sauce is especially good. Their bar is impressive with many craft beer options. The place has a very popular/trendy local feel... More

A place not to be missed, if you want to meet local folks. Very casual "small town" atmosphere, where most folks new each other. Excellent drinks from bar, while you wait for table on a busy night. Menu has all the basics with many daily specials. I'd ribs and she had Tri-Tip and our friends went with soft-shell crabs. All... More
