Town Restaurant Review, San Carlos
Posted by Foodnut.com
Town Restaurant is a steakhouse serving American comfort food in downtown San Carlos. It opened in 2006 and has gotten positive press, so we figured we would see how it stacks up.
Decor, Vibe – Town has a Modern, good looking interior, Sidewalk seating, big oval bar area, counter seating by the kitchen. Couple families, lots of local couples in their 40′s, 50′s out on the town.
Town Menu Pictures
Prime Rib ($32.95) 16oz cut rubbed with garlic & spices, slowly spit fire roasted, served with creamy horseradish sauce and au jus. It came with 2 sides, Asparagus and baked potato. It was tender and very good even with very little au jus.
Kids BBQ Baby Back Ribs ($8.95) with mashed potatoes had good tasting BBQ sauce. Decent sized ribs made it a great value.
Kids Sundae ($1.50) was a cool make your own one. Kids will want to drag you back for only this reason.
Rasberry Mojito ($7.50) with cruzan st. croix raspberry infused rum, lime juice, fresh muddled mint, cane sugar, splash of sparkling soda tasted fine but had way too much ice.
Bone-in ribeye steak ($36) 18 oz of black Angus steak, salt and pepper crusted and seared at 1400 degrees with a red wine demi glace. It came with baked potato and a huge portion of sauteed brussel sprouts. It was huge but quality was average and it was not too tender or flavorful. Nice bone-in cut.
Kids Mac and Cheese ($4.95) was good enough to satisfy kids.
Town Restaurant serves up high end food in the suburbs of San Carlos with San Francisco prices. At these prices, I would not hesitate driving up to Harris’ in San Francisco instead. The value proposition here is not good. If I lived nearby and wanted to enjoy their atmosphere, I would order cheaper items like the Chicken Enchiladas or Skirt Steak. Town has a kid’s menu.
