Out on the town at Town.

Went to brunch with with friends. When I travel I love to try new places. Why go somewhere when I can do that in my city. My friends ordered the Bottomless Mimosas. I had the Peach Bellini. I was happy with my choice. It was nice and refreshing. I ended up getting the beef filet Benedict. It was... read more

This busy restaurant in downtown San Carlos is worth a visit. Indoor and outdoor seating available. A nice diverse menu offering a bit more than standard fare. Rotisserie chicken a specialty in various presentations. I had the chicken salad with warm meat from the rotisserie and it was very good. My guest had the prime rib and it was done... More

The food is consistent and good quality. Service is always impeccable. It is a noisy restaurant with open kitchen and bar in middle. Breakfast is not my favorite so my criticism feels bad, but I feel the combinations are stretched a little thin. The maple bacon is a favorite in my group, however it is not crispy...because of the maple... More

This place deserves the #1 spot on yelp! It is pretty awesome! Service & menu options. Not to mention the vibe! Chef Peter Dominguez rocks! His team is just amazing to watch (we were sitting at the chef's bar) Will be back... Rock on Town!

Excellent meal - order medium rare and perfect. Still red in the center - brown on the out with some herbs. Request the small cut 10 oz and I am sure it was a generous 10 oz. Didn’t have a reservation – explain we had a plane to catch (red-eye flight to Canada). Seated within 30 minutes when the projected... More

Love this restaurant! Everything we ordered was delicious, from the Benedict to the chicken and waffles. Try their bacon for a special sweet/salty treat. Great service and atmosphere. We always being our parents here when they visit and have never been disappointed. Reservations recommended as it books up fast.

This place is amazing. One of the best in San Carlos and even San Mateo County. They will even customize your menu for you. I go when I'm in the area and I've went now a few years in a row for my birthday and the service is wonderful. Our waitress Kirsten was such a sweetheart during our last visit.... More

On the expensive side but I go here all the time and enjoy many dishes. My fav's are the BBQ shrimp app, the deviled eggs, and the bone in rib-eye!
