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.

I recommend getting the nachos. The smokey chicken on them elevates the dish. Additionally the outdoor seating has a lovely water view.

Great food, service and drinks! GO!!!

We ordered the beef skewers, wings, chicken nacho and mushroom soup and all were excellent. The server was very knowledgeable of all the menu items and was so pleasant!

Service was excellent, very attentive, and our server was really fun. The brunch menu had a lot to choose from, and we appreciated the help from our server. Everyone ordered something different: shakshuka, shrimp tacos, turkey burger. Good ice tea. It was nice to sit outdoors, regardless of the traffic.

Weekend brunch @Urban Eatery, whether sitting outside (there is some noise from W. Lake Street, but the Lake Bde Maka Ska view is perfect) or indoors, the staff will take great care of you—attentive, professional service. Menu items are consistently yummy—my friends and I really enjoy this uptown resto.

Would have been nice to have more of expected selections from the past, as the menu was simple to begin with. But, service is always VERY good, as is the food. Sit outside! The lake is beautiful. Great place to unwind.

We enjoyed our visit to Urban Eatery. The wait staff was awesome and very accommodating with our 3 little humans in tow.

I would say the food was good, not outstanding, but good.

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.
