    Before the pandemic my husband and I were regulars, so we were so excited to be back and enjoy town. But in our last visit we ordered California rolls, chicken sliders, and skirt steaks. We have never been more disappointed. The California toll tasted like mush, the sliders tasted frozen and overwhelmed with some type of horseradish. Then we were hoping the skirt steak would save it, since that was our favorite. We ordered it medium well. It was rare, the onion rings quality has gone down, and the green beans weren’t seasoned. The waitress was sweet, and luckily we ordered drinks and fries because that was the highlight of the night. Very disappointed with what we ordered.

    Went with my wife to catch brunch and it was amazing. She has a waffle with fruit and I had chicken and waffles. It was work the trip especially the sparkling water and strawberry lemonade mix they had very fresh. All in all I will be back next month. Thanks

    Not the safest environment as the table we were seated at was near the host check in kiosk, and people would go around it to talk to the folks working and ended up standing next to our table. Food was cold.

    It was so nice to be back after it being closed for months. The sangria was fantastic. I have never had it with white sparkling wine but it was so refreshing. My friend and I could have stayed all day but we had to return to our lives. The cauliflower peppers were also very tasty. Brunch is a great time to go, not that crowded. Look forward to going back soon.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our lunch at Town. I had the French dip — delicious au jus and horseradish. The prime rib was not very seasoned, but I added salt and the sauces, and it was fabulous. We always enjoy our meals at Town. Thank you!

    Town never disappoints. I had a business lunch meeting and my client was pleased for his first time here. Philly Cheesesteak Eggrolls, Crab Sandwich, Butternut Squash Rissotto, and Seared Ahi Tuna were the entrees that my group ordered. Everything was excellent. I highly recommend.

    As soon as we arrived, we were warmly greeted by the hosts. They acknowledged that we were celebrating an occasion and quickly took us to our seats. They gave us specialized menus that said Happy Birthday which was such a simple touch but also very thoughtful. Our server was a lady who was training that night but she was always present and friendly. The drinks were tasty and cold and the food was excellent. I enjoyed the seasonal mushroom bisque then the filet w a crab crust and some sides and my friend had the ribeye. Both steaks were tasty and cooked perfectly medium rare. Originally, they sent out one wrong side but our server quickly remedied that and even asked if she could replate the steak. After our meal, she sent out a delicious complimentary bread pudding that was the icing to our experience. Overall, we had such a great experience from the warm service to the excellent food so we will be coming back. Thanks, Town!
