    Steak not up to std. Ribeye chewy and grizzly. Manger through food down and interrupted server rolled eyes when we couldn't make space. We asked our server who did great job not to let him help. I go there probably 8 times a year and this was my first bad exp.

    The Twin City Grill has been an all-time favorite of ours since it first open with MOA in the early nineties. They have not changed in terms of being a 5-star location for fine food and beverages. Just a real standout. You only have to look at the places that have come and gone at MOA and the Twin City Grill is still there, stronger than ever!

    We went on a Saturday for lunch. Place was packed! Food was very good and plenty of it. Waited a good 10 minutes before we saw our server. Saw servers assistant more than our server - because he was so busy, we didn't order dessert - we had no idea how long it would take to get it. All in all, a good experience, but I wouldn't say 'great'.

    Super busy place on a Friday night! Many people were asked to wait up to an hour or turned away at peak times. We were so happy we made a reservation! Our server Chris was amazing!! Cute, funny, attentive and knowledgable. i had the steak which NEVER disappoints me. We would go here again in a heartbeat but not without a reservation!!

    The experience was overall pleasing, but for almost $50 per person, the food left some to be desired. The bone-in ribeye was not particularly tender or flavorful (very thin cut), the filet mignon was nothing special, and everything else was status quo. The service was outstanding, but this is in the Fogo de Chao price range and the food was in the Outback Steakhouse category. I won't be back.

    We were pleasantly surprised to find this high quality restaurant in the busy mall, where other options were either fastfood or chains. Our server was pleasant and attentive, in spite of a large crowd on a Saturday night. There were so many food options, it was difficult to decide, but we loved everything we ordered. The almond-crusted Walleye was excellent, and the filet was tender and perfectly cooked. The wild rice & corn chowder was delicious too! Would absolutely return for another satisfying meal.

    This was my first time at the Twin City Grill. I was surprised by the decor, as it was warm and inviting. Something I am not used to at the MOA. The service was above average. We were greeted immediately at the host station and seated right away. Our wait staff was prompt, courteous and helpful. The food was good, and the menu offered a variety of items for diners in our party with some dietary restrictions. The gluten-free menu had a lot to offer. Overall, pleasantly surprised.

    Twin City Grill was recommended to me by one of the locals!!! Glad I listened!!! The service was excellent!!! If I lived in the area, I would come back again and again and explore the menu. I had the walleye which was a MN favorite...I can understand why. Food made fresh and in house. When I come back to MN I will be coming back to Twin City Grill.

    First, this is a restaurant in the Mall of America. It is far better than a Mall eatery. Less noisy than the Mall corridors. the food was actually prepared (not thawed), the local beer selection was terrific and the service was very good. If you are in the area, this is a nice respite from the consumerism and junkiness of the surrounding Mall.

    There are four of us from central IL who go to the MOA every September together and Twin City Grill is our first night must!! The food is incredible and there's something to please each of us; we've got two fish lovers and one super picky eater in the group. We don't usually get an appetizer because the entrees plus dessert are more than enough but we tried one of the flatbreads - it was amazing. Over the years we've eaten there, we've tried alot of different items from the menu, which have all been delicious, and one of us usually will have one of the off-menu specials that night which have been a real treat.

    As noted, the food and service were outstanding; however, the noise was as great as any restaurant we have ever been seated in. It may have well exceeded approved decibel levels for indoor dining. Difficult to visit. Tables too close, tile floors etc. Too bad. We probably will not return at dinner hour.

    We ordered Lakeside Platter and Filet Mignon; for some reason I always find when I order seafood plate, the actual food seems to be served in ridiculously small portion compared to the size of the plate. Filet Mignon was great, I found the sauce a bit salty and the actual beef not as rare as I wanted it to be; but this is as picky as I can be. Overall everything was impressive and yes I would like to have my friends go for special occasion. It is pricey for college students like us. :(

  • Best chopped steak in town!!
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We recently revisited the Twin City Grill before our next comedy show at the MOA. I have to say the chopped steak did not disappoint us! The previous time we were there I had the prime rib and my wife had the chopped steak, I have to say her meal was more tasty. So this time we both had chopped steak with mushrooms, and it was the right choice. On top of the great meal we had exceptional service, with extra thanks to the busser, who didn't leave a finished glass or dish on the table. We will be back the next time we go to a comedy show!

    My very specific husband took up our waiter on the "we can cook your salmon the way you like it." Blackened, Cajun spices, a side of roasted jalapeño pepper, and two bottles of hot sauce from which to choose made this restaurant a hit, and our waiter a hero! Fabulous crime brûlée and espresso.
