A word from TWO urban licks
TWO urban licks has been heating up the Atlanta restaurant scene with its “Fiery American Cooking” since opening in the fall of 2004, making it one of the city’s busiest restaurants on a nightly basis. The scene features “Fiery American Cooking” prepared in a magnificent nine-foot, wood pit rotisserie in the dining area and live blues nightly. TWO has garnered an abundance of local and national accolades including Conde Nast Traveler’s “Hot List”, Bon Appetit’s “Hot 50 Tables” and one of Rachael Ray’s “favorite restaurants” in the country as told to InStyle Magazine. Nominated year after year as Best Restaurant Scene and Best Place to Take an Out of Towner, it is no wonder that guests keep coming back for more.

    Great spot. Was very tricky to find so follow signs closely. Was still popping at 1130pm on a Saturday night. Live music. Lots of people. Friendly staff. Gorgeous decor. Must visit for late night meal in Atlanta. They also have a good brunch I've been told.

    This is a restaurant that you go to for the atmosphere It's loud and fun, however I'd recommend appetizers and drinks only, as the entrees are nothing spectacular. The hostess stand is a hot mess, crowded and unorganized even when you make a reservations, but our server was great and on top of her game. In general, it's a cool space with a good vibe, but the food is not going to blow you away.

    The Waitress was very rude and inattentive. We initially planned to have dinner, but once our guest arrived they had already eaten a late lunch. We decided to have appetizers and drinks instead. The entire meal went down hill from that point. The Waitress failed to keep glasses full, provide bread, which was free by the way & seemed very excited only after we asked for the check. Not to mention she failed to bring all the food that was ordered. Tip Missed

    Even for the "over 50" crowd this is a fun place. Food was terrific - I would strongly suggest asking for patio seating if you don't want to spend the evening screaming at your fellow-diners - music/speakers are booming and scratchy.

    Two Urban Licks is incredible!!!! I had the steak and my girlfriend had the chicken and we both loved it! The Mac n cheese that comes with the chicken is great. The atmosphere alone of this restaurant just makes your feel cool.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012

    The food was delicious but expensive - just 3 scallops for the scallops and grits dish? That's tiny for $26. Also, the noise level was pretty high this time which made it difficult to hear friends.

    Eh, good for those who know, or pretend to know, something about wine perhaps. Im not a fancy diner and I dont drink much, so Im probably not there ideal customer, but I do know what I like and the steak was bland. I had to add salt so I could taste something. Maybe thats just how fancy people eat steak, and if so, sorry for my simpleton taste buds. The empanada was really good and my wife enjoyed the scallops. I should have gotten the brisket. I thought it was 3 stars, but rating it 4 since my wife thinks im uncouth and just dont get it. See honey, I get it, 4 stars.

    After we found it we were so happy! Everywhere you look is something cool, beautiful, interesting or different. The wall of plants - the table with the waterfall- the mural- the keg wall which had the kegs filled with wine - of all things!!- the mural (again-it's giant)-the music -the open kitchen. Two Urban Licks is a scene and a half. I like big butts and I cannot lie!! And then there is the food!!! The most popular openers are the Salmon Chips and the Hushpuppies. There is a reason they are the most popular!!! We sampled the duck, the brisket, the branzino and the lobster crepe. All cooked to perfection.

    TWO Urban licks is definitely for those who are looking for atmosphere. Its a beautiful dining room although if you do go around the busiest times it does become hard to hear. The prices I feel are a little high for the food but I enjoyed it nonetheless. I will definitely return.

    The duck was delicious & served to my liking. (The waiter stated the duck would be served medium but I preferred medium-rare.) It was served with a string bean & chorizo (sp?) side which was delicious. My college-aged daughter had the scallops which were grilled beautifully. The grits that accompanied the scallops were a bit fiery but enjoyed. Another at our table had the tuna & declared that it was seared perfectly. Great outdoor dining when weather permits. The evening became chilly but there were outdoor heaters for the comfort of the patrons. Most of the desserts were were unusual but yummy. The fig ice cream & apple tart was enjoyed but another diner had the heath bar cookie which was a deemed little too sweet for their liking.

    Location is awesome, especially outside seating which looks over the skyline and is right next to the belt line. Bourbon cocktails were good, maybe a tad pricey for not being that strong. Roasted duck and pimiento cheese hush puppies were very good. Steak tartare toasts and plum, blackberry cobbler were disappointing, especially the cobbler. Was barely warm, almost like they were pre-made and heated slightly before served. I'd go back, but maybe just for drinks and small plates.

    Ordered the flat iron steak and 15 minutes later was informed that they were out of flat iron steak. The waiter complained about having too many tables, which might equate to the poor service we (group of 4) received. Based on service, I don't recommend. Based on Food and Ambiance, I definitely recommend.

    From the moment you walk in, you realize that this place is in demand. There is a steady stream of patrons all evening, and the energy of the building is electric. Although they have an open floor plan, each section has its own personality; the bar is vibrant and lively, the large seating are is full of groups celebrating birthdays and other special occasions, and the patio offers great views and a more intimate ambience. It's a great place to hang out with friends, meet a new friend, or enjoy a date night.

    Dined on 10/18/2014
    We had reservations for 7:30 and were still waiting for a table until 8:30. It's almost like the establishment was overbooked. Waiting at the bar was impossible because of the over crowding of people and standing in the hallway put you in the way of everyone who came through the door and felt the need to have a reunion with guests they knew that were also waiting for a table or leaving the restaurant. I went with small group of girl friends and we felt like we were ignored by the hostess. Probably won't be going back here again...the food was pretty good but not worth the struggle that comes along with eating here.

    We sat on the patio for the first time last Friday and it was a wonderful experience! We had a great view of the skyline, the beltline activity, and even the bocce ball players. Although the cool evening would have been comfortable, the overhead heaters kept us warm and toasty. The service was great and the food excellent as usual.
