    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.

    Despite being in the Mall of America, the good is good and the service is usually pretty solid. They used to have a great wine list, but seem to done away with their broad selection and switched to a limited set of options - no bad wine by any means though, but it was one of the things that used to draw my group there. It's a little crowded and loud, but manageable.

    The food was good. The service was ssssssllllllooooowwwww from the server and getting our food. We had a person who has food allergies and asked the server questions to make sure he could eat it. When the server said it was ok the item was ordered. We'll they just weren't sure when it arrived and just didn't eat it. Then a manager came up and said it wasn't good to eat because of the allergies. They then redid it correctly. This was just one reason it lead to a long dinner. Usually TC Grille is good. It just wasn't tonight.

    My group of 4 friends went to Twin City Grill for dinner, on a Tuesday evening. We were seated immediately, and the server came by quickly to take our drink order, and brought dinner rolls to our table. The rolls are wonderful - old fashioned like grandma would make. The menu is a mix of American cuisine, with good choices between salads and entrees of chicken, beef and seafood. I ordered a salad and my friends ordered the fish tacos and everyone enjoyed their meal. They highlighted twin city beverages and food in their menu (beer, fish, ice cream the basics of a Minnesotan diet) and looking at the other tables, their food looked delicious as well. I would definitely go back.

    We needed a place near the airport where parties coming from four different directions could meet for dinner. Not only could individuals wander the shops and halls of Mall of America while we collected over a two hour period but this was the perfect place for dinner as one person in our party of 12 required a gluten free option.

    Most of the service throughout the night was great, however, once we received our bill, no one else checked on us for another water, see how we were doing, etc. We noticed that several servers and even the manager walked by several times without asking us. It was just a little disappointing since the beginning of the evening went so well.

    We were visiting the mall of America from Pittsburgh, it was my sons 26th birthday and I wanted a really nice night for him. It was so noisy in there we couldn't talk to the person next to us. The food was very good, we ordered appetizers, roasted chicken flatbread. while my son was eating the flat bread he choked on a bone. When we brought it up to the waitress her response was "it happens". I could not believe she said that. I have been in the restaurant business since 1986 and I would not have someone working for me who fluffed off something so serious. She never apologized or asked if we would like another. All the good we had at the restaurant was over shadowed by our waitress. Thank you

    While it is located in the mall, the grill is conveniently tucked away and very little outside noise permeates the grill. The food was very good and if you're a sandwich aficionado then this is the place. The noise inside the restaurant was energetic but not too loud to have a conversation. The service was quick, non-intrusive and prompt with payment. I would recommend again.

    I hadn't been to this staple in the Mall of America for many years. A work colleague and I had dinner while in town on business and had a great meal. I had the meatloaf and mashed potatoes-- absolutely delicious and probably the best meatloaf I ever had. My buddy had the prime rib and a baked potato and loved it. On tap is a local lite beer from Schnel's (sp?) which was great. We pounded down two each. For dessert, I had the Banana Cream Pie and he had Cheescake. Both were very good. Service was friendly and very efficient. When I told the waiter how much I liked the mashed potatoes, he brought out more as a side. I think this place is a great example of high quality American-style diner food. They do it right.

When they heard we were celebrating our birthdays, they surprised us both with a chocolate lava cake and ice cream dessert. Our dinners were excellent. Great variety and lots of comfort foods.
