    We traveled two and a half hours to watch a play that a dear old friend was directing. The ambience was funky, the food was great, and I think we had the owner and the manager check on us...no need, our server was doing just fine! I would definitely recommend the 14th star brew as well as the yumster! We had a great time!

    this was my first visit to Twiggs and we were part of a special package with limited menu choices. Their main food was good but they ran out of a few basics and I didnt care for their choice of vegetable side ...it was corn that was over cooked and kind of tasteless. Maybe we came too late for dinner but I thought 7pm was kind of average. Our waitress was very attentive. I will try it again and repost ...it has potential for a great reveiw with just a few fixes that may have been due to the special package we were on.

    We both had the 50/50 beef & bacon burgers. Although we asked to have them cooked medium and medium rare, they were medium well. Unfortunately, they were not juicy although they did have a smoked flavor from the bacon. Next time, we'd rather try the all-beef burgers. The potato chips were very good though.

    The only complaint of the group is that the hamburgers were supposed to be rare to medium and they were well done. On another occasion I was outside for lunch and everyone in the group enjoyed their meal. I would go back. I like the quiet atmosphere.

    We enjoyed the food and dining experience but we had to wait a long time for our main meal and and also for the dessert. Our waitress was great! We had a booth and the seats sat so low I couldn't see what I was eating as one of the items was waffle fries and they were served in a high container. My haddock came on a board which was fine except a plate would have been much easier.

    We occasionally dine at Twiggs, and things are pleasing about 30% of the time. Service is usually a little slow and food has come out more than once- over cooked, burnt or not correct. Why we go back? Food (when done right) is good and the sweet potato fries are to die for! Well, after 30min of watching multiple tables arriving after we ordered receiving their food.. waiter came out to say he addressed the kitchen about our food not coming out. Long story short, our food never got cooked and eventually we received it. Apologies were made and the manager took care of our bill. I am thankful for that and appreciate the effort of the restaurant- that might prompt us to go back again.

    We went right when Twiggs opened and it was good, but now that we've returned, this will become a regular hangout. The restaurant week deal last night was 50% off burgers with an alcoholic beverage. The beer list at Twiggs has always been impressive and has only gotten better. You'll find the local stars 14th Star on top, but that's only the start. There's a substantial list of beers on tap that's well worth working your way through. Staff were attentive, food was excellent, and we finally tried the Moroccan wings, and they were definitely worth it. Those will become a staple order, especially when Twiggs retains the 50% off appetizer deal from Restaurant Week. We were also told they plan to keep the $3 margarita night.

    The steak was prepared to my expectations. Very friendly professional service. The only negative is that I feel TVs DO NOT need to be placed at every angle. Actually TVs are too much of a distraction and don't belong in this type of atmosphere.

    This was the first time we've eaten at this restaurant and it was very good. We had for starters -Irish Nachos - they were great, and Fried Mac & Cheese Balls. I had the vegetarian lover’s gluten-free flatbread; it was very good, even as leftovers the next day. My family had - Ringster, BLT, Diced Beets & Goat Cheese Salad and grilled cheese. Afterwards we walked around the park and listened to the live band playing. I thought it was a very nice place and would certainly go again.

    We had just been to Twiggs a week ago & experienced a delightful dinner of salmon. Our friends were having their 64th wedding anniversary and rarely go out to eat . We decided that we would take them to Twiggs & they enjoyhed it immensely. We felt it was very nice that at the end of our meal we received a free dessert from management to celebrate their anniversary. We will be back soon.

    We went to Twiggs after attending another event so were a little over dress. The service was superb and we had the best pan seared salmon that I have ever had. This is really a compliment as my wife had lived on the ocean for years. We plan on bringing some friends to dinner to experience the wonderful meal and service. Really a gem in our little St.Albans.

    I love the food at Twiggs. It is excellent. The trouble is the service. We sat down at 6:30. The table next to us sat down at 6:45. They finished their meal and paid before we received our food. We ordered two distinctly different beers (one dark and one golden) and received two of the dark beers. When we mentioned that they were the same beer the lady who brought them told us they were different. We had to return one of the beers to the bar to get the correct one. One burger cooked correctly one not. They got the check wrong as well.

    We have been to Twiggs more than several times, mostly a stop before a BFA hockey game and we sit on the bar side. Always receive great service. Food good and consistent. But on Mother's Day, we decided to have an early dinner, at 4:30pm, hoping to avoid the crowd and in hopes service would be prompt (due to hopefully not being as busy). We waited too long for everything. I'm not sure why everything took so long and I noticed other tables seeming too be experiencing the same thing. We were sitting in the back area of main restaurant. Party of 4. This won't keep us from returning, but if it had been my first time there, I might not visit again. All my other visits have been 4-star thou.

    We've had great experiences here a few times. We decided to bring the kids for dinner, and the food was delicious as usual. My only complaint was that the mac 'n Out we ordered for the kids came out just out of the oven and was way too hot - they weren't able to eat much at all, and the plates were dangerous to have on the small table with children in reach of them. If you could let those plates cool, or transfer the food to another plate before serving, it would make for an even better experience for families!

    I've now dined at Twiggs several times and they never fail to provide outstanding service, as well as excellent, affordable food and drinks. I've been there for "date night," met friends for dinner, had lunch with girlfriends, celebrated our twenty-something's birthday, and attended a business lunch meeting there. This funky little gastropub has more personality than one might expect in the quaint town of St. Albans, Vermont. One of my new favorite menu items is the crab-cakes! You can make a meal out of this appetizer! Once you dine at Twiggs, you'll find yourself becoming a regular!

    We started our meal with the Irish Nachos, which were excellent and quite a surprise. Good portion for an appetizer as well. We each had an entree (I had the sirloin steak special and my husband had the fish and chips). The portions were generous, the food was well-presented and tasty and it came out warm. The drink menu was adequate and I had a tasty red wine with dinner. Would recommend this restaurant and we will visit again to try one of their many specialty hamburgers!

    There weren't enough wait staff. Our server was very good, however, there were only two wait staff for the whole restaurant. We waited a very long time for our burgers so it appears that there weren't enough kitchen staff either. it lacks the warmth, charm, and culinary delights attributed to the previous owner. Some general cleaning is needed as well. The long waited burger and fries were good, however, the selections from the menu are limited.

    Our beet salads were good, except for the beets! Each salad came with a huge pile of anaemic, maybe canned beets dumped on top. Not very appetizing when there are plenty of fresh ingredients to be had in VT. The vegetarian options were very limited and the chef seems to think that a soupy beer cheese sauce should be dumped on everything. My mac n cheese was more like a soup than the baked comfort food I was craving. Our design-your-own flatbread came out with the wrong ingredients, even though we designed it in paper and gave the ticket to the server. At least the beer selections were good! I recommend this place for drinks and apps, but the rest of the food was sub-par.

    Twiggs really specializes in neat combinations of burgers. The house burger mix is half beef and half bacon, but all beef or even veggie is available. You can build your own, and a neat feature were the little slips with all the combinations so you could fill it out and not have anything lost in translation. The fact that they were in a little Vermont paper holder with a rustic little log of a pencil was a nice little detail! The dessert offering was good,but it would be nice to see more than one. Service is maybe a bit too relaxed at times, but it's a neat place to hang out!
