You have to try the warm cabbage salad, it's to die for. We all had it and loved it. Lunch size is big. The spicy Ahi Tuna roll was really good, especially not being a Japanese restraunt. Their soup was very tasty. We all enjoyed everything and would go back again. Price was about $22.00 per person with tip.

I personally wouldn't recommend brunch here, but lunch and dinner are excellent! Great steaks and wine selection.

The food here is very good. I have had good service and bad service here. The management should pay more attention to the staff interaction with the patrons. I would never fault the cooks or the food but for these prices, I expect decent service. That is not always the case here.

I had the ultimate breakfast sandwich that came with potatoes. After you bite into the sandwich it becomes really messy with the egg yolks and melted cheese. I was wiping my face so much from the egg yolks. The bacon was very tasty as with the ham. Overall food,service and ambiance was good. It does get very noisy inside that's... More

Dined here with business partners, upon a recommendation from others in the area. I can see why the recommended it. The location is great and the food and service outstanding. Ambiance was great although it can be a bit noisy for any level of discussion. The food and drink options were great. I had the sea bass which was prepared... More

I just attended a small company dinner here to celebrate the holiday season. We dined mid-week at around 7:30 PM. The restaurant and bar were packed to overflowing when we arrived. After a small wait, we were seated in a very nice booth toward the back of the restaurant. Although still very loud and crowded, we were able to enjoy... More

Had a business dinner at Town last week. Ambiance and service were first rate. Food was very good with one pretty major issue - we had a table of nine and five of the steaks had to be sent back because they were overcooked. Mine came back overcooked a second time and I chose to eat it because the other... More

We went to Town, again, just last week for a late lunch on Black Friday. We were able to sit outside where they had the heat lamps going and it was very comfortable. The waitress was very nice, and the food did not disappoint. We ordered the Chilean sea bass which was cooked and seasoned perfectly. We also ordered the... More

My husband and I had a fabulous dinner at Town last nite. We were running late and called the host. He held our reservation for forty five minutes. We ordered a New York steak medium rare. Our server Tony was the absolute best ever. He was attentive yet didn't hover or interrupt our conversation. We were celebrating our 30th anniversary... More
