Took the family here for dinner tonight and enjoyed everything they put in front of us. Nice atmosphere and good service. A little weird to pour water from a plastic pitcher (the kind you'd get at the dollar store). Equally strange to fill it up...More

We visited the Bistro for the first time this weekend and were very pleased with the experience. The decor is casual and understated, which suggests that the food might be somewhat basic, but it's anything but. We didn't have huge appetites that night, so we...More

I wanted to order the pork shank, but it was already sold out when i ordered. I ended up ordered the lobster and shrimp with Israeli cous cous and it was awesome. My only suggestion is to make reservation in advance.

Town Hill Bistro is not the type of place that blows you away with extremely innovative combinations of ingredients that you could never imagine. The menu is varied and has some creative uses of local ingredients (such as a rhubarb chutney/sauce with pork loin). However,...More

Ok, so we didn't have soup or nuts, but if we had, they would have been superb! I found Town Hill Bistro through TripAdvisor. I wanted a special place to take my wife for her birthday during our trip to Acadia National Park. All of...More
