Good menu and value across the board here, but you are surrounded by sports television screens which can be distracting especially when no one seems to be paying attention to any of them. My host says he 'blocks them out': easier said than done.
Staff were attentive and the place was spotlessly clean with plenty of space between tables and booths.
Ideal for a quick, and good quality meal.

This place has a nice outside dining area in addition to the interior restaurant. The waitressses were very attentive and sociable and there is a reasonable selection of food on the menu. Although represented as a grill restaurant there is only one steak on the menu, but a strip steak which was very good.

We tried Towne for the first time this week, and were pleasantly surprised. It is one of a group of excellent restaurants in Wilmington owned by the same people (Brasserie, The Kitchen, OC), all of which we like. Towne is attractive and the ambience is quite comfortable. The food seems to be a collection of dishes from the other restaurants; salad from Brasserie, flatbreads from OC, etc. It is a nice mix. Food is uniformly good, service is pleasant and professional.

I was staying at a nearby hotel and walked to the shopping district looking for a nice happy hour special at a non-chain restaurant. This looks like it fit the bill.

My mistake was not leaving when the hostess asked if she could "help me find something" when I walked in. Let me preface that I was not shabbily dressed, but must have looked out of place. She "reluctantly" allowed me to consume space in her establishment.

The food was good. I mean really good. So good that they could have got 4 or 5 stars. Unfortunately, they are not nearly as good as the hostess thinks. And that sinks the ship.
