Town Ratings and Reviews

My first experience with Town was underwhelming. I had read all the hype and it just didn't live up to expectations. This was my second visit and it was a pleasant surprise that changed my impression. The service was excellent and the ambiance improved - maybe it is the fall season. Most importantly, though, the food was perfectly prepared. Great night by the fireplace added to a fun date with my wife. We'll be sure to return.

Food and service were good. Unfortunately I can't get over the unannounced "Healthcare Act" fee slipped into the bill @ a measly $0.75/person. WTF? Server explained it was to cover potential cost if we were to get sick as aresult of our dine. I'd be surprised if that was an accurate explanation. Perhaps ownership would like to chime in with a reasonable explanation.

Had a very enjoyable lunch at Town with friends. I was concerned the noise level would make it difficult to carry on a conversation but I was wrong. We had a table up front near the fireplace. Perfect! The Warm cabbage salad is to die for. Salmon sandwich was very good. At the end of our lunch the waiter brought a nice slice of bread pudding as we were celebrating a birthday. Excellent service from the minute we sat down.

We come to Town for all our "special occassions" and when we just want a goooood meal. We have our favorite waiter who knows our orders, what we like and how we like it. Don't believe I have ever had a bad meal or experience with Town!

Town is an excellent go-to restaurant for a business lunch. The service is always great, and the food delicious -- the shaking beef is flavorful and tender, and the Kale salad is very tasty. Overall, 5 stars lunching experience.

We celebrated my husband's birthday with a Sunday brunch. Upon arrival, we were greeted by a friendly hostess who acknowledged the birthday occasion as we were escorted to our table. Our wait person was genuinely warm and attentive. We ordered the mimosa, sangria, steak benedict and the chicken and waffles. All were superb! My husband also received a complementary warm bread pudding for a birthday dessert, which was big enough for the two of us. Moist, with a warm caramel sauce, it was the best bread pudding I had ever eaten! Our experience at Town was fantastic. We are so happy we picked Town for my husband's special day. It was our first time there, but certainly not the last. A great big thank you to everyone at Town!

TOWN is consistently a winner ! Service is always terrific (especially Louanna). Food is excellent.
I've been to TOWN many, many times and they are excellent. Looking forward to seeing the new outdoor seating area once it's completed.

This was a good spot for a business lunch. We were seated in a booth and though the sound level is moderate (a good energy level) we were able to talk easily. The Power Lunch menu is a good option and we both enjoyed the starter and mains. Well cooked, flavorful and delivered quickly. I'd definitely go here again for a business lunch.

This restaurant is expensive but worth it. My husband and I both had filet mignon. I had the au poivre sauce which was wonderful. My steak was cooked perfectly. Service got four stars because the waiter took a long time to greet us. Once he did he was very attentive and redeemed himself. :) Would highly recommend.

Been here many times, and never been disappointed! Great cocktails, great steaks, great appetizers, great wine. Always my first choice in the area, can get pretty crowded for walk in, but bar and chef seating can help.

Food was good. Room was chilly-door opened and never closed despite my request to do so or to turn some heat on. Was uncomfortable cold at our table. Chicken was a bit grislly. Steak good, but over-priced. Sides were very good. Wine prices generally decent-some good values (Merlot and Zins) and some not as much.

We had a 6:30 reservation at Town last night 11/13/2026, our whole experience went from bad to worse. One of our parties entree was ice cold and all the vegetables were cold on the other entree's. They were returned it then took 20 mins for them to be returned. Also we were not all served at the same time. The service was beyond awful, this is an experienced restaurant !
They then gave us a discount on our bill for the terrible
service and cold food, but when they rang up the bill we were charged the full amount of the bill. It then had to be redone and took another 15 mins..

We enjoyed a really good meal. My 12 and 14 year old, plus my husband and I. The Chilean Sea Bass with the miso glaze was perfect. Not over-done which can happen so often. The cocktails and wine were good, as was my son's NY steak and loaded baked potatoes. My daughter's butternut squash gnochi was also really tasty. The California roll but a great appetizer.
Only one complaint -- the lemonade was really watery and refills should be free. Also, possibly too many televisions at the bar. They serve to distract dinner conversation a bit too much.

We were late coming from a funeral. The lady at the desk was very ride and my brother who was very emotional was just as rude back. We had our salads before the drinks and the meals before we were done with out salads. We got the check before desserts. From start to finish it took 42'. And the table then sat empty for 35' for the 8pm reservation. Not very well done but the waiter was told by the hostess to get us out as fast as he could. He was told it was at our request.

We came here to celebrate my Mom's 65th birthday. Corey, our server, went out of his way to make my Mom feel extra special. She was so surprised by the special menu header for the event and loved the bread pudding dessert that Corey selected to top it all off.
