Love Town Hall. I looked at menu ahead of time and had my heart set on the Local Fish. They didn't get their delivery that day so that was a bit disappointing. The food is really good; it's a small menu though so if you only want one item, you may want to check ahead of time.

We always have a great dinner at Town Hall. The menu is not very extensive (which I prefer) and the preparation changes often. We are so lucky to have Town Hall as one of our neighborhood restaurants so having a menu that changes to keep up with the freshest ingredients is refreshing. I had the salmon and my husband had the chicken. Both were so very tasty. As a bonus, it was Monday and they have select wines at half price. We were able to have one of our favorite wines at a very reasonable price. We recommend Town Hall. Hint, the noise level is higher in the back room so if there are no more than two of you eating and you don't mind high top tables or at the bar, I would sit in the front section.

Took Mom to Town Hall for her 90th birthday. She picked the place because the menu appealed to her enjoyment of inventive cuisine
Town Hall does not disappoint! Among our group we had the sweet pea hummus, the cauliflower steak, the scallops, the fresh fish and the pasta bolognese. Everything was great although I felt my fish was a bit too salty. We shared desserts with the chocolate cake and banana pudding.
Our server was especially attentive as were all staff who made sure Mom had the help she needed.
The only complaint was that we had wanted the duck fat cornbread, put our order in the moment we sat down at 5:30, but it didn’t materialize until almost 2 hours later! The cornbread is really good but its place in the world of dining shouldn’t be at the tail end of dessert!

I rated the restaurant as "quiet" but we were dining there on a slow Sunday evening, still early, very few patrons inside.
Overall the experience was excellent. The menu options seemed a bit limited; I chose two sides, both were delicious. My companion reluctantly selected the chicken dish, recommended by our server. After two days, he's still raving about that chicken!

We reserved our table on open table only to get there and then to say they don’t honor Open Table reservations. The food was okay. They were struggling and super busy. The drinks were great.

They called a few hours ahead to make sure we would make our reservation. We were seated immediately. everything the four of us ordered was delicious. The "sides" are generously portioned and big enough for 4 of us to share. I felt the wine by the glass was overpriced. Highly recommend for a special occasion or if you want very flavorful healthy food options.

Everything was delicious. Server was outstanding. Can not recommend the pimento cheese grits. They really should come off the menu or readjusted. Very soupy, lacked flavor and the flavor that was in there was not pleasant. Three of us in our party of eight had them and all had the same opinion. Tried to doctor them with salt but salt didn’t help. Otherwise a great time and loved everything else.

Very refreshing to find a wonderful restaurant that appeals to Foodies. My friend & I love to cook, enjoy a great drink or discovering a new wine to pair with food. We enjoy trying new dishes & exploring flavors to attempt & re-create at home. Town Hall well done! Great flavors & wonderful staff. We’ll be back!

Seated right away. Not a fan of the narrow "two top" but it was a busy night (concert in town) so all tables were full. Waitress attentive and personable. Ordered Oyster App. They were a little chewy but good flavor. Husband got the Pork Cheek. Very tender. Excellent flavor. Loved the Brussels. I got the Salmon. One piece was a little over cooked but the other was perfect. Didn't have time to order dessert (our fault, not theirs) so cannot comment. We will be back.

Through no fault of the restaurant our last minute reservations forced us to sit outside. Their outside dining area is not very comfortable and squeezed onto a busy narrow sidewalk. The inside of the restaurant was much nicer but loud. We started with cocktails. My old fashioned was very good but a little heavy on the bitters. My wife's very dry very dirty martini was not dry enough. We also enjoyed a charcuterie plate which was excellent. As for entrees I enjoyed the fresh fish of the day (Mahi Mahi) which was very good. My wife enjoyed the strip steak. While the entrees were good, they lacked any real pop. We also ordered a side of the crispy brussel sprouts. We did not enjoy these as they were covered in oil. I would be willing to give them another shot based on the reviews from others I read and that maybe a more comfortable setting would make me less critical.

We went on wine tasting night and even though it was supposed to be going on for another 1/2 hr. we were told it was too late to participate. I suspect that is because they had too many other people doing it. The food was good and the service was fine. It was very loud and we were having to shout across the table to each other to be heard. It seems like a good place to hang out and have a few drinks with friends but it is not a quiet , slow enjoy you dinner kind of place.

Probably some of the best service I've had at a restaurant in a long time. Food was excellent. Fish was prepared to perfection. gets a little noisy and right before we left another table was seated really close but maybe that's part of the ambiance.. Overall I'd highly recommend it and make sure to try the pimento cheese spread you won't regret it!

Every thing we ordered was suberb. The “sure thing” cocktail was indeed a sure thing. I ordered a basic salad with chicken and the flavors and ingredients were amazing. My husband had the half chicken, my son had the NY strip. Both cleaned their plates. Their take on a banana split was delish. Thanks!
