We had a group of 18 family members (Ages 8 - 70) go for dinner during our vacation and everyone enjoyed their meals. BBQ was excellent, smoked salmon was superb, crab cakes were tender with all crab (no fillers). I would be remiss if I...More

Something different is simply stated the best restaurant not just in Urbanna but the whole region (with the exception of perhaps Merroir). They have a huge menu, their breakfast/brunch can't be beat (and the portions are HUGE). They have a great beer selection, their BBQ...More
