This is a very cool place, I was driving (and I hate driving) so it is a bit of a hassle to find any parking on the street or find a parking garage. Still, I would say it is well worth the hassle. The only reason I give service such a low rating is that everything there was too fast paced, the bartender is multitasking like I've never seen (several drinks at once while taking our order). The guy got everything right, but I wanted a glass of Scotch after my beer and it took a while to tame the human tornado enough to ask for it. In other words, he was clearly an awesome bartender, he was just treating too many others to his awsome bartending skills to strike me with the type of awe where I get a drink in my hand when I need it.

Had a shot of 25 year old Glenfarclas that really hit the spot and was only $10 or $11, well worth it. Just for the record, it's WOODY you can taste the splinters, that was just what I was hoping for this night.

The beers were innconsistent, something great followed by something quite bland and/or bloating. But if there is good beer in the mix it's alright with me, I ignored the bad and soldiered on. What else can I say, I'll try this place in the afternoon next time, perhaps that will solve my issues.

Pretty awesome place. In addition to the good beer selection, the awesome cider selection and amazing food, made this also a good place to take my spouse as she doesn't care for beer.

I hit up Town Hall pretty late on a weeknight, so the crowd had died down a bit. They were still serving food, so that was cool. Anyway, it's a pretty classic pub set-up, good sized bar, lots of table space, wood and mirrors and TVs. Looked like what it is: a bar that's been around for a while and isn't going anywhere.

I've heard a lot of good reviews and recommendations, but I wasn't really into any of the beers. There were a ton of different beers on tap, and a very diverse range of styles. So I went with the seasonal sampler, then followed that up with a Mango Mama and a Three Hour Tour. Really nothing that I would want to have again, though the Java Porter was the best of the bunch.

Service was okay. The bartender was a little wifty and distant, but I really have no complaints. Food seemed like standard pub grub, and I was just looking for something small, so I went for the southwest egg rolls. They were good, but no better or worse than the ones they make at Chili's.

Yes, I was kind of disappointed overall, but I'd still say Town Hall is worth checking out at least once.

Went here on a Monday evening and it was dead. Probably not the best night to gauge it off, but it was very dry and kind of boring ambiance.

The beers were served okay, they were served in pint glasses with very little head. House beers were solid in flavor however.

Service was terrible, but I chalk that mostly up to Monday night.

Selection was excellent, lots of great choices and good prices.

A British style pub with an exceptionally strong selections of taps. The house brews are all good or better. In fact, I’d characterize all that I’ve sampled as above average for style. Nice wooden bar and plenty of indoor and (in summer) outdoor seating.
