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.

You can count on Town to deliver a consistent dining experience. Food is very good, fun lively place bordering on noisy. Not a good pick for a romantic dinner but how often are you looking for that? Bar is also very good..friendly, knowledgably staff pour a good drink. Would strongly advise reservations a week in advance if your looking for... More

We came for my friend's birthday. The couple has been there numerous times and raved about it. The food was very good and always busy so you have to make reservations.

Town is one of the busiest restaurants in San Carlos. It is always packed with customers at lunch and dinner. I tried out their burger and iceberg wedge salad once and found them both over the top -- way too much sauce/dressing. My favorite dish is the skirt steak salad -- a light (and lightly dressed) bed of greens with... More

Had a great dinner with drinks, wine and appetizers. A little dark, with all the dark wood paneling and low lighting, at dinner. Fairly noisy. Interesting dishes that were delicious. Will return for brunch and the bottomless mimosa's.

On business in the area and our hosts brought us here. Apparently a lot of locals eat here and it is generally a full crowd no matter what day. Menu focuses on steak and seafood and I had the sea bass. It was very good and properly cooked. Will return.
