We’ve eaten at the Town Hall every time we stay in Florence on our way to Durham. NC. We love the food especially the Appetizers. Love the sausage!

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.

Both the quality of the food and the service provided by the staff was excellent. Town Hall offers unique meal options that are not available anywhere else in the Florence area. Our visit to the restaurant was a very enjoyable experience. We will definitely being going back soon.

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.

Eaten here dozens of times. Our server was great and she took our order promptly but the time needed to get our order out was far too long. We had two members of our party who had a flight to catch and they had to run out the door after quickly eating dinner. Some of the food came out hot, unfortunately some came out cold. Given the fact that the dinner took so long we had no choice but to eat it as is. Since this was a business meal and we were with clients we felt it was not the right time to send back cold food. I can only hope that our guest got a hot meal before they needed to bolt from the table.

I got a pork chop and mashed potatoes. Not hard to mess up you would think. Mashed taters were salty as could be, I thought a shot of tequila would be for the salt. Pork chop was tough and dry. My family said my cooking was better. Not something you want to hear when you're paying $30 a plate. Thought about complaining but, what good would that do other than another opportunity to screw up. Have been before but won't be back.

Construction downtown. Parking downtown was a challenge this trip, with on street parking, not metered after 5. Not inconvenient, but expect to stroll a block.

The food, drinks and service were all outstanding. The trout was fresh and exceptional and the filet mignon was cooked to perfection and tender enough to cut with a fork.
Jennifer, the manager, and her staff do an outstanding job. We consider Jaime the world's best bartender - there is always a special drink. Melony was our wait and did an exceptional job. Whenever we go to Town Hall it is just like going home - they greet and serve customers with a genuine feeling of warmth and you can feel the love in the food. Kudos to everyone!!
