Another EXCELLENT meal at Town. As usual, the food was expertly cook, and the service was top-notch. It was my birthday, and they surprised me with a special menu that said Happy Birthday (and the date)! I know, it’s a small thing, but they have ALWAYS been so welcoming and you cannot beat the food! Thanks again for making a special day even better! Will definitely be back (and not just for my birthday!)

Food was delicious (Power Lunch - California Roll, Shaking Beef, Chicken Enchilada). Service was superb (from the greeting at the door through our whole meal). Will definitely come again.

The food was just blah. We've eaten there before and enjoyed it. The rose cucumber vodka drink was just that... Very sharp, not well balanced. The beet burratta salad tasted like plain beets and burratta, no complimenting flavors. California roll was good. Tuna tataki was alright, but not wow. We love meatloaf, it was under whelming. Took more than half home and 2 of us were sharing it. French dip was just average. We drove 45 minutes to eat there, it was disappointing. We brought a Del Dotto Cab, loved it, $20 corkage was worth it.

Ordered the egg white scramble with veggies and it was smothered in cheese and didn't really taste the eggs! They put my dish under the broiler so it came a bit hard on top and just oily with cheese. I wouldn't order again.

Igor, our waiter/attendant, was very professional, helpful, and charming! He helped make this outing that much more pleasant. The only downside is the wait between the time we ordered and the time our food was served. We all ordered the filet mignon benedicts (four of us), and it took over 40 minutes to arrive. Fortunately it was a beautiful day, we were seated in the front porch, and all went well.

Chicken and waffles so yummy. Moist chicken, crispy skin, dense waffle. Peppercorn sauce adds that much more flavor to the chicken!

Bread pudding is always a winner. Super moist, balanced sweetness, served warm.

We were there late on Mon night - so noise level was delightfully low (it can be crowded and noisy at peak times). Although the server was not always at hand when wanted, he overall did a terrific job - knowledgeable, upbeat and responsive. The food was astonishingly good. Don't miss their famous hot cabbage salad, and the New Orleans BBQ shrimp appetizer was spectacular. We both went for their excellent ribs, and shared four vegetable sides that were all delightful.

Town is seriously the best restaurant in Town! My husband took me and my little kids for mother’s day and it was amazing per usual, great service and good food! It’s our go to special occasion place! I love that it’s fancy, yet they do such a great job with my kiddos. Bringing them carrot sticks and the kids Sunday after dinner. It was really cute and perfect with sides of fudge, sprinkles and m & ms’s such a nice touch!

One of our filets was overcooked, so it was redone, and we received a $3 credit for our bill. Kind of weird to have received such a small token. Why bother?

Great night out with terrific food and drinks. The crab topped fillet was perfect. Try the Town Old Fashioned...complex. Noise level on Friday was very high so it’s not a place for a quiet romantic date. Parking is practically nonexistent after 7:30PM on Friday.

We came to celebrate our 11th wedding anniversary and had mentioned it when making the reservations. When we arrived, we had personalized menus with Happy 11th Anniversary printed on top! Our server Julia was very attentive and spot on in taking care our needs for the evening. Cocktails were wonderful and meals were delicious and generous! Overall experience made for a great anniversary evening!

Prime rib was bland, sides of creamed spinach and garlic mash were good. Rack of ribs was very dry overcooked, very basic.

This place does have a good ambiance and good service. If I do return it would be for a drink but definitely not a place I would think of for food.
