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 seasonal 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.
Our rooftop restaurant and bar, The Dispensary, is now open. Join us on the 3,500 sq. ft. rooftop to enjoy craft cocktails, wine, local beer, and new southern fare while overlooking downtown Florence.

The wife and I had a great experience. The waitstaff was attentive and made excellent suggestions, along with the dining area having a very relaxed feeling. Amazing drinks from the bar as well. We will definitely be returning.

First time but not last. Heidi was an awesome bartender and hostess. Great cocktails, ambiance, location and food. Despite an issue with the gas stoves that might, the fare was still on par.

Shoe string fries weren’t as good as typical fast food. Expected better. Burger seemed like a “pre made” patty. Thought it would have been freshly made…..but tasty. Ate 1/2 of it.
Cornbread…..BEST item.
Ambiance…great!

What a gorgeous place! Service was excellent. Food was very good. My husband and I shared a charcuterie plate. Delicious, except instead of some nice bread or even crackers, there was a pile of pig skins. EW. We both had hanger steaks. Nicely done for both of us, but mine was strangely not hot, just warm. Truffles fingerling potatoes were delicious. The decaf was French press--excellent. We enjoyed watchingnthe hustle innthe open kitchen. A good choice of restaurants in a town we knew nothing about. Would go back but don't expect to be in Florence again.

Just fabulous service and food! We live in Charleston, a food Mecca and Town Hall is more than equal to any restaurant there. Fish special was wonderful and the vegetable plate was the best I’ve ever had. Can’t wait to return!

Town Hall has become our reliable, "go to" for dining with friends. The wait staff is obviously well trained. And the imagination that goes into the food is very interesting and delicious. Hard to go wrong with anything on Town Hall's menu.

The meals and the courtesy of the staff was very good. The noise makes it difficult to chat. My concern with my most recent visit was the time it took to order and receive our drinks and meals.
This is hopefully taken as constructive criticism, because Town Hall has a lot to offer. The waiter seemed to be doing the best he could, but there were issues. I know that as we struggle to get back to whatever the new normal is, businesses, especially those in the food business are suffering because they do not have enough employees.
I ordered a drink. My wife ordered a bottle of wine. The waiter left without taking the orders of the others at the table. I assume he thought the wine for everyone. I got up, found him, and informed the others wanted drinks, too. My gin and tonic came with out lime...not sure if that is the policy or what. Anyway, I went to bar and was given a lime slice. No bread. Never asked if we wanted bread. I now understand that I was supposed to order bread if I wanted it. This may be common a lot of places, but it was new to me.
I hope this does not sound too harsh. Without a doubt, I will come back. But, last night, if it had been my first time there, would have given me doubts about a return visit.
Thanks for seeking input from customers.

Really just a perfect stop. We sat at the bar after a full day of driving, and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. The 2 bartenders were the best; helpful, attentive and friendly. Food and ambience are both spot on. This will become a regular stop for us on our travels.

The new menu was awesome and they have actually brought the à la carte selections back! As usual, our wait, Melony, was exceptional and very attentive and Jaime continues to astound us with exceptional creations from the bar! The manager, Jenny, was very attentive, which is normal, to all guests as this was an exceptionally busy night as it was Saturday before Mother's Day plus it was race weekend at Darlington Raceway! Kudos to the staff of Town Hall for an exceptional new menu and for always raising the bar for exceptional service, drinks and food! We feel like family when we go to Town Hall.

Limited but creative menu. I’ve never had anything there I didn’t like, nor have I left hungry. They were out of a standard menu item by 7 o’clock. Food took a bit longer than expected to arrive, but it came out hot, together, nicely presented, and tasty. Server was very attentive and pleasant. Atmosphere is the best in Florence - casual classic elegance.
