    We usually dine at Twin Oaks two or three times each year. For the life of me, I can't tell you why I don't go more often. We have never had a bad, or even questionable experience on any visit. The entire staff is always professional, courteous and very personable. The food is absolutely fabulous. I hate to admit I am not as adventurous as my wife. The first time we dined a Twin Oaks, I ordered the filet; and have every time we've gone since. It is truly the best I've ever had. Go early enough - you may even get a free loaf of bread to take home.

    We had not dined at Twin Oaks Country Inn for two years and upon returning, were so pleased to find there was nothing that would leave us to not fully enjoy another fabulous dining experience there. Our server promptly greeted us and from that point on, she made for a delightful evening. She was highly qualified to represent the establishment and offered us suggestions on choices of entrees (four adult diners). Our meals were fantastic - three pasta dishes and one steak. All were presented hot and exactly as described on the menu which led to our chosen entrees. We all began with the chicken noodle soup - ?? - yes, it was the best any of us ever tasted, including our grandmothers. We will return soon and look forward to another nite.

    We had an amazing dinner at Twin Oaks Country Inn and we're very surprised that it has been in existence for 23 years. Oh, how we wish we had known about this wonderful restaurant sooner! The food was superb, the wait staff was friendly and efficient, and the historical building is charming. We've already made another reservation and plan on taking friends and family.

    Impecable service, excellent food was a great way to start our weekend. Our waiter, well versed, was to respond to all the questions tossed his way. Being from the North suburbs of Chicago trael was only 45 minutes. Not bad by any means Great dining and recommended across the board

    My husband and I have been going to Twin Oaks for our anniversary every year for the past 18 years. We like the variety of entrees on the menu and have never had a bad meal. Entrees are generous. We rarely order dessert at other restaurants but always save room for dessert at Twin Oaks! Creme brulee....mmmmm! Oh and you have to try the potato leek soup too!

    Twin oaks opened 22 years ago and I was one of the first employees at the age of 15. The food has always been great. Haven't been there in years and oh my god I question myself as why I don't eat there more often, just so good. Will visit more often thank you Richard and all the great staff.

    Have eaten here many times when in Southern Wisconsin. Never disappointed. Great food in a place so small it is hard to find on a map. We have never been disappointed and the menu specials are always worth trying. This time two couples each shared a prime rib dinner and the staff and kitchen did a great job in splitting the plates. Soups are wonderful. Svickova is very good but served with pasta and not dumplings as in a true Czech restaurant.(minor complaint).

    We stumbled on this spot when we were out for a drive, used the OpenTable App to find someplace close for a meal. What a hidden gem this place it. The food was delicious. We loved the atmosphere, walls adorned with local artist paintings for sale. Our server was pleasant and suggested a perfect glass of wine to pair with our dinner. We will definitely return here.

    We have been to Twin Oaks several times and it never disappoints me. The food is always Amazing and plentiful. There are not many restaurants I will go to anymore but this one is well worth the drive. I just hope they are able to keep it up because food and service like they give seems to be a thing of the past. Thank you for making birthdays, anniversaries, and just a date night so special.

    We have dined at Twin Oaks a number of times (5+), however, on this visit we found that salads are no longer included with the meal. This really bumped the ticket up and for 5 people the bill with tip was $200 (grandparents each had a glass of wine, the balance of beverage was Pepsi). We probably won't return because of this large bump in pricing. Too bad because we really do like Twin Oaks, just not that much.

    Expensive but great food as always! We had our wedding reception in the banquet hall here and try to get back once a year. The food and service is fantastic but we were very disappointed to learn that they no longer are accepting the restaurant.com gift cards ($25 off a purchase of $50 or more). Unfortunately over $50 for dinner for our budget is too steep, so don't know if we'll be able to return.

    I've been to Twin Oaks a handful of times now and the food and service has never disappointed. I had a good sized rib-eye and it was cooked perfectly, medium-rare with a nice charred crust. The only thing I can offer as a negative is that the entrees aren't served with soup or salad.

    I don't think the hostess checked "open table" reservations, because she did not have my name written down nor a table set up....but that was taken care of quickly. The staff overall were very friendly. Our server was great! The few times we have been here the food has been awesome! (have had filet x2 as well as salmon and seafood dishes). The menu is a little pricey but worth it.

    Food was good, don't get me wrong; however, the prices seemed a bit high. I didn't realize it was a la carte style meaning no soup or salad with even the most pricey entrees.

    Our waitress was outstanding. Food was delicious. Homemade bread is really good. Bar tender was very personable and knew how to pour a drink. After dinner we sat at the bar for an after dinner drink and the owner's wife talked to us about our experience.She was very nice. We are planning on going back.

    We have been to Twin Oaks a few times. The food is always exceptional, and servers pleasant and capable. The home-like, attractive atmosphere adds to the dining event. We don't use the bar so can't comment on that aspect. I recommended it to friends the next night after our most recent experience.
