Town Hall has been packing them in since 2003. In a quiet part of Soma, with hi-rises all over the place, they serve classic American regional cuisine.

Town Hall San Francisco Interior

Decor, Vibe – Clean, modern big long room with a brick building’s shell. Lots of business people were here for a leisurely lunch making it a noisy place.

Town Hall San Francisco Seafood Chowder

Seafood Chowder ($8.50) with house made sourdough crackers was very good. Rich, Fish stock that was smooth and creamy.

Town Hall San Francisco Butter Lettuce Salad

Butter Lettuce ($10.50) with tasty candied walnuts, radishes, apples, and blue cheese dressing was a very fresh and good sized salad.

Town Hall San Francisco Lamb Stew

Lamb Stew ($19) with carrots and yukon gold potatoes served with buttermilk biscuits was delicious. It had some kick with the peppers, but not an overwhelming lamb flavor. The freshly made biscuits were great.

Town Hall San Francisco Buttermilk Ice Cream

Town Hall San Francisco Carmel Apple Crisp

Carmel Apple Crisp ($8.50) with buttermilk ice cream, apple caramel was a huge portion. Very good crisp and perfect integration when eaten with the ice cream. Pretty sweet and buttery though. Good enough for two people.


Town Hall San Francisco Duck Enchiladas

Duck enchiladas ($16) with tomatillo salsa, creme fraiche, and lime was pretty average. Nothing special here. Meat was fair, flavor was not too vivid.


We had a terrible server at Town Hall. We had to hunt him down multiple times. He did not even bother to ask how the food was. Even with the service hiccup, we can still recommend the place for some classic American fare that everyone can appreciate.
Glasses of wine start at $8, Half bottles from $19, Full bottles from $32, $20 corkage.
