    Love the experience at Twisted Fork, but the food is not always hot when it is presented. Some of the food feels like standard Bar food and would often like specialty type meals. This restaurant is no longer using Open Table and our reservation wasn't received by the restaurant. We were only informed once we arrived, but luckily there were many of tables.

    food was delicious & was well priced. We ate out on the patio & there was an insurance seminar that was much too loud otherwise it would have been a perfect evening. Our server was fantastic!

    Went to watch the game and had a great time. Good service and food was pretty good. My only complaint was the chicken for my Caesar salad was overcooked and dry. The pizza wheels and chicken wings were excellent. We were allowed to stay for then entire game without being rushed. Thankfully they were not too busy so we didn’t hold up a table.

    Sat inside and the music from outside was so loud we couldn’t hear each other talk unless you were right next to the person. Service was super slow because our server had so many tables. Food was not good this time, we come here 5-6 a year and this was our worst time. Sorry will only stop by when there is a band we want to see.

    Always have a great experience at the twisted fork, as we can tell by reservation call ahead and the lines when we get there! Food is always top notch and prices stay pretty much the same as previous years.I did miss the Monte cristo sandwich, which I noticed was not on the menu. Plenty of staff working also, thank you , we will be back!

    Wonderful food and great staff! We had reservations and did not have to wait at all for our table to be ready. Waitress was extremely busy but did a great job taking care of us. It’s a very large open restaurant/bar so it’s very noisy. We sat in the bar at a booth and the noise level was better there than in the dining area. We can’t wait to go back and try more menu items. The ribs are delish!

    What's not to love about the Fork! The food is always plentiful and delicous. Can't say enough about the friendly and efficient staff members who make you feel like you're their friend. And always top notch entertainment. Check this place out if you haven't already!!

    The food is terribly overpriced for the quality given. The items that are ‘made in house’ are certainly store bought. The Mac and cheese, pork sandwich, and the tots are drenched in oil. Overpriced for what was given.

    Fun place great music venue. Food was surprisingly good and the prices were reasonable. Had Prime Rib. I think 37 bucks. A similar cut at a steak restaurant would be minimum 50. 16 ounce, cooked well, all the food came to the table hot either way all the extras. Will definitely go again when I’m visiting the west coast. ( of Florida )

    We had the best waitress. But I don't remember her name. Blonde with braids. Very attentive and helpful. There were 5 of us and we all had different dishes. Everyone raved about the cerviche chicken sandwich and the grilled cheese sandwich. Place was not too crowded so it wasn't very noisy. We would all go back again.

    2nd time we’ve been here and tries something new. Delicious shrimp and grits and fried shrimp platter also delicious. The only negative is the noise level as it was a Saturdays and football games were being played on every TV but that’s why people frequent this restaurant.
