Food was AWFUL. We actually left after telling our waiter. He offered to take some off our bill, but we declined because he did provide good service

Bar fare at gastro-pub prices. Service was good, but ambiance and food were sub-par.

Couldn't sit on the back patio because it was in use by a wedding group.
The noise level in side was too much for my husband, who is hearing deficient.
But we sat on the front patio, which was not noisy and enjoyed the evening. Both the food and the service were great! We'll go back soon.

Both food and service were average. Ambiance is very similar to other taverns, good beer selection, and reasonable prices. This is one restaurant that you could get a rattle snake and rabbit hot dog. In general not a restaurant that we would return to.

We were very pleased with the Twisted Oak. I had two of their house brewed beers, an IPA and a chocolate stout. Very delicious. The food was creative and very tasty. They weren’t very busy but we all felt that should change. Not a wide open, obvious location...which is perhaps why they didn’t appear to be doing as well as they should have been. Would absolutely recommend.

I would agree with many other reviews that the service is mediocre. My initial contact with the hostess left me confused. I gave her my name and that I had a reservation and without a word she left. A moment later another lady came over and said we could sit wherever we wanted. She was pleasant, gave us our menus and said she’d send our server over. She ended up taking our drink and food order. The staff seemed unorganized and uninterested in taking care of customers with much effort. We shared the roasted cauliflower, romaine wedge and short ribs. The food was good, but it’s not enough for me to recommend or return. I appreciate attentive staff and the restaurant is very loud even though it was not very crowded.

Great food, mediocre service and a loud environment. My wife and I took the kids here and it was nice because they could be loud but there was a table sitting next to us dropping f-bombs like a frustrated mechanic; they were literally yelling a conversation that no one else wanted to hear. Overall good experience.

We had a large party at The Twisted Oak for a friend's birthday. ALL of the staff was extremely helpful and kind, especially Jessica and the other bartender. They were constantly checking to see if we needed anything, and made the evening very enjoyable. We will definitely return for happy hour and other occasions in the future. It is now one of my new favorite places!

The beer selection and service were fantastic. Lacked live music which we mentioned to the owner along with our praises to our waiter and the excellent food.

His response was that people don't come for the live music. I somehow find this hard to believe.

Overall a great experience and would definitely go again.

Meh, could easily get a better review with slightly more effort. Almost tolerable wine. Stupid plates for salad. Weathered cheap diner-style silverware, paper napkins. Otherwise the place is fine but they go cheap here and there and it's beneath the place.

It is a nice bar with great beer selection. The Reuben was tasty but the meat is a slab - which I wasn’t expecting that. The donut bread pudding was okay - but it tasted like it had coconut in it and it was mushy - not what I think of for bread pudding. The atmosphere is nice.

Our party wasn’t that enthusiastic about the menu here. My burger was good as were the sweet potato fries. The place was so cold that the food got cold quickly. While nothing terrible happened, I probably won’t return.

Our second time dining at this restaurant. Took our friends there Sat night. Service was beyond slow. Appetizers we're cold when they finally got to the table...5 minutes before our main dishes were delivered. I don't know if it was just an off night and they were understaffed or what? Took forever to get our drinks as well.
Hopefully they can get their service up to snuff, because the food ( other than the cold appetizers) is really good.

A good”drop in for a burger & beer kind of place”- go & watch a game while munching better than average food from an interesting & diverse menu . Sevice is as casual as the place but you can watch a game on any number of well placed screens while you’re waiting . Then enjoy quite tasty food whenever it shows up.

We went to Twisted Oak on NYE dinner after the movies. Maybe this is the reason why the prices were just very overpriced for the menu choices. The food was average but we had paid premium prices for our dinner which was not worth it.

I would not recommend or go back for dinner.

Really enjoyed Twisted Oak. A very fun, friendly place with excellent food and beverages. Met new friends, enjoyed a date with my husband and had a great hamburger and cocktail. The fries were the best I think I've tasted in a long time, maybe ever. Nick and GG were very friendly and attentive, great service. It is loud, but it all sort of adds to the ambiance of the place. It doesn't seem like too much, because everyone is having fun.

I think they have a pretty decent happy hour and a great bar, but the last couple times I've been here for happy hour or in the main dining room, the service has been really slow. For example, we went there Saturday night and sat in the main dining room and we left almost two hours later. All we got was a few drinks and main courses, not even appetizers or desserts. It was definitely at the point where I was wondering where my food was.

Food took forever to come out and then my chicken was very weird...so I sent it back. The manager did try to make it right by comping a couple of things but this is the second time we've been where the service was slow and not great.
