I Was in the area for business so I stopped by for dinner. The place feels like a bar which is a steakhouse. Service was good, for 18$ I got half of a rotisserie chicken with two sides. To that I added a cool pint of beer. Good time.

Last night the family assembled at a great restaurant. The steaks were all fantastic and the service staff was exceptional. Only complaint would be the noise level as the pace and movement was rapid fire. We ordered one of each of the desserts for this "graduation" party and were not disappointed. Really a great restaurant and experience for carnivores.

Steak was perfect. Atmosphere is lively. The service is friendly. The price is expensive but it is value for money. I recommend for that special night out. You will need to book as it is usually full.

I was staying in San Carlos on business and whenever I am in the US I do look forward to a good steak. Town delivered just what I needed. Dining alone I was delighted to sit at the Chef’s table overlooking the kitchen. On seating I ordered a beer (Mirror Pond Pale Ale) and told my server that I needed... More

Decent service, very experienced wait staff, delicious steaks. My wife and I visit here about once every six weeks. We have yet to have a bad experience. The only small complaint is that it is generally very crowded so be prepared to wait if you don't have reservations.

It is a little pricey but good for a heavier meal. It has a nice selection of appetizers if you just want a lighter meal. It has a busy bar and is always crowded.

Love this place. Have visited it few times with friends and family. Everything on the menu is great but the bread pudding is to die for.

Town is a great place for dinner. From cocktails and wine to appetizers, dinner and dessert, it's consistently outstanding. The steak is incredible but if you're not a steak lover, their fish and other items are outstanding as well. Reservations are a must!

There is a reason that Town is always packed. You can count on getting a delicious meal with excellent service every time. And in the unlikely event that your meal or service is lacking, they will rectify it. Just about everything I've ever ordered at Town has been delicious. For seafood, I love the halibut, the salmon and the cajun... More

We always take Bessie, our Welsh terrier, when dining out. Therefore, only restaurants that are pet friendly are considered. Towne's sidewalk dining is comfortable (except on chilly/windy days). Although one of the more pricey-places in San Carlos, the varied menu and quality of food is worth the difference.
