Located on the 6th floor overlooking the Black Warrior River, our bar and kitchen menus celebrate our local roots and our love of the rich history of Tuscaloosa. The 205 is the perfect spot for celebrating date nights out, singing & dancing along to live performances at the Tuscaloosa Amphitheater, and toasting a Crimson Tide win with our specialty cocktails. With this idea, we aim to create an environment where all are welcome to laugh with friends, neighbors, visitors, and members of the Tuscaloosa community. The care for our guests and focus on hospitality elevates The 205 above the rest!

    The food was mediocre and I wish it were better. It’s a cute game day spot but needs improvement

    Hmmm, service was awkward and slow. Food took forever, 45-60 min. The place was empty Friday night before a game? Now I know why I had no problem getting a reservation. Food was pretty good once we got it. Nice bottled wine selection. I’ll hope things improve for 205.

    Very small menu. Left hungry. Salad was basically lettuce with like 5 very small bite size of mahi. Which i was nervous about ordering there, my daughter Hamburger for meat and cheese only was like $17. She asked for chip they gave her French fries and charged for them. Thought maybe we had found a secret gem but not. Now we know why it wasn’t busy on a Saturday night.

    Full menu was unavailable, yet QR code was on table to download full menu. Food took a long time. Food was just ok.

    The location is cool - there was a concert at the amphitheater & from the balcony tables you can see/hear the activity. The cocktails are ok. I was optimistic about the very limited number of options on the menu because often that means they do a few things and do them very well. Unfortunately that was not the case. The House made chips seemed anything but - the were soggy, stale and cold as were the French fries - even after we asked to have them remade. The entrees were just decent. Our server was very nice….

    The 205 is a hidden gem!! It is on the top floor of the Homewood Suites Hotel. It has an excellent atmosphere, delicious food, excellent service, and a great view! I highly recommend this restaurant! The menu isn’t large, but the food they offer is superb! Give it a try! You won’t be disappointed!

    Great location and the food was delicious. My only real feedback is the menu is fairly small and price was above average. We had a burger, patty melt, beer, mixed drink and the bacon dip appetizer and it was $90. I think our waiter was fairly new but honest feedback is: the app shouldn’t come out 45 min after seating with the main course and your customer should never have to wait 15 mins before getting a drink. I know they were busy with a prom, concert, parents’ weekend, etc., but I feel like those are more of a reason to ensure the staff is available, trained and a manager is ensuring customers aren’t experiencing a long wait time.

    This was the worst restaurant I have ever been to in my life, the "steak" was raw, the sides were cold, and the overall atmosphere was horrible.

    Food was good. Bar stools are very uncomfortable... moved to a table. The picnic tables etc on indoor outdoor carpet is a weird concept for dining.

    Dinner and drinks after graduation ceremony on Friday night. It was perfect for family and our graduate. Menu selections covered range for everyone. Added bonus that we were already staying in the hotel. We’ll be back!

    Everything we ordered had an up charge, including the slider trio on the menu. We had 2 cocktails and some mediocre bar food and the bill was over $200.
