Southern
The menu changes with the seasons, and features a selection of starters and entrees with both familiar and unexpected ingredients, some of which are from our nearby family farm. Locally and responsibly raised meat, pork and seafood options are prepared on our open wood-fire grille, and are served alongside family-style sides. Located in the historic Kress corner on West Evans and S. Dargan Street, Town Hall also offers an extensive list of American spirits, local beer, fine wines and well balanced cocktails.
ROOFTOP
Our rooftop bar, The Dispensary, is now open. Join us on the 3,500 sq. ft. rooftop to enjoy artisan cocktails, wine and local beer while overlooking downtown Florence.

We’ve been before, and it’s usually really good. Everything seemed to be off Friday evening. It was just OK.

Town Hall consistently meets or exceeds my expectations. From a price standpoint, it is at the top of the list for Florence, but certainly comparable to other cities in SC. Wait staff was attentive. Food obviously served right when it cane off the grill. Nice job, Town Hall.

This was a Pre-New Years Eve dinner. Our party of 4 arrived at our reservation time and was seated without delay. Our waiter took our drink orders and they were delivered quickly. We ordered the sausage appetizer special, which was delicious and plated nicely. The surf n’turf (filet & scallop) was scrumptious. Unfortunately, they had run out of the quail dish which was disappointing. Dessert was a little disappointing. We shared a cheesecake, which was rather tasteless and a bit dry. We wish we had chosen the beignets, and will next time. Overall, it was a nice experience and we look forward to returning.

My husband ordered the braised short rib. He was served chicken. He refused the meal and the only solution offered was a Wait of 25 minutes to prepare the beef and a free dessert. We elected to share my entree and we’re not interested in dessert. It was a disappointing experience to say the least.

This was our first visit since moving to Florence. It was an exceptional menu and an outstanding meal. The charcuterie board was fantastic. We enjoyed the quail and pork chop entrees and they were both fantastic. Next time we will request to sit to be able to view the open kitchen. Definitely will be taking visitors to this location when in town. We can't wait to return and try something new on the menu.

Great food and atmosphere. They sat us immediately at the window. Great table except that the end of the bar was there as well. Bar patrons including staff would pile around us making it uncomfortable and couldn’t hear each other speak. Service was a little slow on getting our drinks as well but the server had another large table of 15 or so and no one seemed to help him. Overall I would still go back just a few little things they could improve upon.

When you dine with us in the future please note on your open table reservation, “not to sit near the bar”. This allows us time and planning to accommodate your request.

I would recommend Town Hall with the following caveat, it is expensive for the amount of food and side dishes received. Although the food was good, my party of 5 each had a meat entree and 1 side (mashed potatoes). One of the 5 did not order a side or cocktail/wine. 4 of us each had 1 drink, either a glass of wine or a cocktail. I have been to this restaurant several times and the cocktail and wine portions are always small in comparison to other similar level restaurants, and the price for the drink is expensive. I have several friends that have all commented on the wine/drink portions as compared to the price. Our bill including tip was $382.00. That is excessive for the items ordered and the portions received. In summary, good food and ambience, but very expensive for the portions of food and drink received. Not a good value.

We were in town for the Pecan Festival & decided to eat here based on reviews. My husband had the Mahi Mahi & mushrooms as a side. Both were very good. I had the boulebaisse which was in brownish smoky broth. Both meals were good, however portions rather small. Our waitress mentioned they had a pastry chef, so we split the apple bread pudding. Nothing special & apples weren’t peeled, so difficult to chew. Also, they don’t give Opentable points. What a bummer!
