Great dining experience! Julie was our server and she was amazing and very attentive. Fried green tomatoes were exceptional. My fish tacos were large. I could only eat one. The vegetables aren't cooked with pork so that was a plus. My friend enjoyed the whole wings so much we ordered some to go. Definitely, looking forward to returning when I am in Tuscaloosa. The owner also came by to make sure everything was to our liking. Nice ambiance and music too.

Okay, you may think I am lying but they have the best grouper sandwich you can hope to get! I like it blackened, my wife likes fried. Food is amazing. Service is amazing. Gary is amazing! Seriously, we eat her 3 times a week!!

I expected more given the reviews. Cute restaurant. Nice server. However the food was below average. We had the Caesar salad with shrimp and it was absolutely soaking wet with dressing and the shrimp were like teeny frozen shrimp you can get from a grocery store freezer. We also have the ribeye and potatoes. If I was over cooked and potatoes were burnt. We had the buffalo cauliflower which was good and the buffalo dip which was average. Overall I might come to this restaurant again but I'd probably stick with something simple like a burger.

Loved the food! We ordered the bbq nachos, crab appetizer with half fried and half sautéed, and I had the salmon salad as an entree. The nachos were pretty good....they use a cheese whiz type sauce and bbq sauce. Flavor was good though. Crab was the best. The sautéed crab had a ton of flavor! The salmon salad was excellent. The salmon was perfectly done. The dressing was homemade, which was delicious. I would return!

Stumbled upon Urban Bar & kitchen, and so glad that we did. The food was amazing! In fact might be the best shrimp and grits I've ever had. The owner came to our table and gave us the back story of Urban, and made sure we were pleased with everything. Super friendly environment with excellent food! We'll certainly be back!

We love this place. Shrimp and grits is wonderful. Great atmosphere. Crab Claw Dinner was excellent


Located centrally in the University St. restaurant district this restaurant is unassuming from the outside and wonderful for lunch. dinner and/or drinks. The menu is mostly southern and the food tasty and high quality. Excellent bar and wonderful service.

Loved it! The Cowboy burger was excellent, huge! And the fried crab claw appetizer was the best I've had in all of Tuscaloosa. Even went back the next day for a take out order of them! Service was excellent too

Outstanding food and service! I sat at the bar. Amanda, the bartender, never slowed down. She was on top of everything. The food was awesome! Had the Creole Surf & Turf and it was outstanding! Chose the Collard greens for the side and they were the best I've had in a restaurant. Will definitely be visiting here again! They did it again! Came back for the second night in a row and they did not disappoint. Sat at the bar again, Haley was the bartender tonight. Again, she never slowed down and kept things moving smoothly. Tried the Grouper sandwich...excellent! I rarely have dessert but at Haley's suggestion, I tried the white chocolate bread pudding and it was outstanding! I am a fan of this place. Every time I am in Tuscaloosa, I will be coming here until I have tried everything on the menu.

We were here from out of town for a conference. We picked this spot based on yelp reviews and I can say it did not disappoint. The food was great. The chicken was seasoned well and waffle was cooked to perfection. The macaroni wasn't the best but it wasn't bad either- average. The service was great especially from the manager. The staff was very efficient and the restaurant was clean. It was my entire party's first time and we all enjoyed it and would be back if ever in town! Run don't walk there when you get the chance

Love the Chicken BLT sandwich. Since it was rather large, I ate it with my fork. My new favorite restaurant in Tuscaloosa. Good service as well.

The service was GREAT! The food was delicious! Try the cowboy burger or the buffalo cauliflower tacos. We have been here twice and it was just as good the second time! We are from out of state and this place is our favorite in Tuscaloosa.

The appetizers, fried green tomatoes and nachos and cheese was good and received timely, I had fried catfish, sweet potato Fries, and collard greens. They give big portions and it’s good eats!I hate to be negative but the girl setting up tables seems to be reusing dishes that look clean. I saw he doing this with saucers. I took notice since one of our glasses already had lipstick. We all had straws and hadn’t used it. COVID is real people.? The girl with the glass was wearing a mask.
