Urban Eatery offers a warm and comfortable dining experience overlooking the beautiful Lake Calhoun. Urban Eaterys menu is approachable with ingredients that are Fresh and Local. We have taken traditional favorites and added a twist, like Smoked Chicken Nachos, Roasted Beets Salad. Our Lamb Burgers are AMAZING.

Great location, great service every time, fantastic food! Please never take the smoked chicken nachos off the menu. That, on the patio, with a glass of Pino and a good friend is one of my heavens!!

They have a new blueberry lemonade drink on the menu. Very refreshing and perfect to sip on their patio. My husband and I shared the tomato avocado flatbread and the shrimp tacos. Both were delicious!

Urban Eatery has a great ambiance, and food and service were great. Celebrated my daughter's 20th birthday; she got a nice apple strudel / ice cream dessert on the house. Noise level was non-existent with very few guests in attendance. The restaurant observes all CDC recommendations from frequent disinfecting to mask wearing of staff at all times. Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys great food in stylish atmosphere.

We always have an amazing experience at Urban Eatery. The food is spectacular, great atmosphere and service is unmatched. Humus, Thai steak salad, Beef kabobs and Napoleon for dessert were excellent. You truly feel special when dining at Urban Eatery. We will definitely come again.

Food was OK (had the shrimp tacos), servers and all staff were attentive and kind. Very quiet due to limited capacity and it being a Sunday night, I'm sure it's a great atmosphere when crowded.

This is a great place to stop for a meal or cocktails after a walk around the lake!
Several years back their food was meh, but they have really upped their game with a great chef and cooking staff that turns out a variety of delicious dishes at decent prices for the high qua;ity.
Favorites: The yummy hummous - I've never had better; perfect chicken wings; fall off the bone ribs, and an unbelievably delicious mushroom soup...really, you have to try it!!
The wait staff is very friendly, and service is attentive without being cloying.

I chose UE for my birthday dinner with friends and everyone had a great time. It wasn't very busy which is to be expected post COVID-19 anywhere you dine out but we had space for 6 girls and were very comfortable. The manager checked in often and even asked who's birthday it was to confirm I was happy. Very nice. We had a few apps: chicken Nachos and the Hummus plate. Both were okay, not extraordinary. Main courses were on point though. I'll post a few pics. The chef really cared about presentation! And it was all delicious. The bartender can mix a damn good dirty martini and he even made us a round of buttery nipples on the house! Lastly, they let us stay well over 2 hours and even though the kitchen was closed the chef whipped up a Sebastian Joe's ice cream treat for me with a candle. So awesome. Didn't get a pic of that because we ate it, lol. Good times. We'll be back for sure!;
