This place was a great find. The St. Louis ribs were delicious and the corn bread was unreal.

Great food, really busy at lunch time but the service is efficient. Only downside is that it is quite loud, if you are looking for a quite lunch don’t go here but any other circumstances, this place is awesome.

We once loved Town Hall, but I think they've just dropped the ball. Our server didn't really check in on us when our meal was served. Our cheese plate for dessert was laughable, as each serving of cheese was ONE bite and horribly presented. It just seemed like don't care much, anymore. The bartender was great, so if we do return, it'll be to sit at the bar. Our friends, who have never been, aren't likely to return. It really was disappointing, unfortunately.

This is my 2nd time eating at Town Hall. The 1st experience was excellent, which is why I decided to return. The restaurant is still very nice, staff are helpful & attentive & drinks were really good. Sadly however, the meal was average at best. Two mains (pork chop & chicken & waffles) & 2 of 3 sides (mac&cheese croquette, Cornbread) were noticeably under seasoned. The one side that was seasoned well was the jambalaya.


Given my previous dining experience at Town Hall & good standard of service, I would be willing to give the restaurant another go & chalk this recent meal down as just an off-night in the kitchen.

Food and service were fantastic. Only downside, searing was disorganized. Our table wasn’t ready at reservation time and we had to wait almost 30 minutes.

On this lunch visit, tried the Fried Chicken sandwich, which was moist and tender inside, crispy and delicious outside.
Definitely my favorite dish, along with the Buttermilk Biscuits and Fried Okra, of course.
Thanks!

I love the ambiance. I just wish there was one or two non- read meat healthy entrees. The chicken is fried. I think the place would be packed if they had that

Have been to Town Hall many times and loved the food yet again. The menu is always changing, so don't count on the online menu. Only weird disappointment this time was the service. Felt like we were really bothering the server by being there!

This is not what you would call "traditional" southern food but it puts an amazing elegant spin on everything. All the food was perfectly cooked, swimming with flavor and the portion sizes were more than generous. I didn't order it but I saw the chicken and waffle dish go by me and it looked like it could feed a whole table!

I brought home my leftovers which were promptly confiscated by my husband who also agreed that the food was amazing and that was after a re-heat in the microwave.

The restaurant was very busy for early in the evening! Our service was somewhat slow due to many tables had large parties. Food though was excellent.. we were very pleased. The barbequed shrimp was excellent.. the sauce was amazing.. salad perfect as well..Would return but it was a challenge to have a conversation as it was pretty noisy.

It's a sort of pricey menu but I'm certain it's geared to the younger, financial markets clientele. I had the BBQ shrimp which was tasty but would have been much better if it had been hot instead of barely warm. I didn't want to send it back because I was afraid I'd have to wait another hour for the food. As it was, the dinner took a very long time. The location is great but parking is nasty. If you're arriving on BART, it's a 3 block walk

Our wait person was hard to pin down. Her knowledge of food very poor and she was very distracted. Waited a long time for drinks and food. Quality of food was just okay. Definitely not enough wait staff.

I have been a fan of Town Hall for years. As always, the food did not disappoint. However, our waiter, Timothy was some what surly and condescending to one of my dinner guests. She is relatively young and had trouble pronouncing the name of her wine. Timothy was rather snooty about it. We also felt a little rushed. But I'll be back. The food is that good.

On my latest visit with clients, this time I had the Fried Chicken sandwich, which was outstanding as usual and never fails to disappoint!

Can't wait to return and try the pulled pork sandwich, or possibly the salmon or bavette steak...
So many wonderful choices from which to choose....

Town Hall never disappoints. We went there for a birthday dinner, shared a range of different appetites and plates plus a range of many different cocktails. Between us we probably tried every item on the menus! The food is "California Cajun" with quality ingredients and lots of nice southern touches. The BBQ Shrimp, Cornbread, and Ham and Biscuits are to die for. Versatile restaurant that is good for a business dinner or just for fun.
