At the Twisted Fork we take the traditional and give it a "twist". Eclectic dishes composed with unmatched creativity and flavor served in a casual setting. Fun and funky wines, beers and cocktails are the perfect complement to our Chef’s unique talents. Click on our website link to see the menu. We are a big place but we fill up fast, reserve today and we will save you a seat!

Notating a booth or patio seating for your reservation is a request and can not be guaranteed. We will do our absolute best to accommodate. Our seating of parties are solely based on availability.

About the restaurant
Von Bismarck is a modern family style restaurant inspired by the traditions off Eastern and Northern Europe with a focus on low intervention wine and traditional beer styles. Von Bismarck aims to focus the best of the old world through a modern lens and present it in an atmosphere of conviviality and generosity. We believe communal seating and family style presentation are conducive to this end. Sharing a meal, whether with those you love or complete strangers is essential to the human experience and all of us here at Von Bismarck hope to help you on that journey.

What a great find while visiting Reno! Upon our arrival we were greeted by the friendly staff, and the delightful aroma of the wood fire grill. We were soon seated and had delicious German bier headed our way. Our appetizer choice was the Pretzel with Obatzda cheese dip, which was really delicious. For our entree, we ordered the Smoked Fried Chicken, Rauchänhchen, potatoe salad, and grilled sauerkraut. OMG, the chicken was the best we’ve ever tasted! The sides were great too, but again the chicken was definitely our favorite part of the meal! If we ever come back to Reno, we’ll definitely eat here again. Thank you for the wonderful evening.

Really great dinner at the Wild River Grille. We've dined there several times, and on each occasion, the meal has been very good. Service is also always up to their standard without "off" days. A well thought out wine list.

Atmosphere and service were amazing, (thanks Joe!) food was great, if a bit slow on getting out to us but understandable due to the crowd. Outdoor on the deck or indoor, you can’t go wrong! Highly recommended!

Food was excellent and service was great. We ordered the sand wedge salad and ceasar salad, both were very good. We split the Dave’s good ol’ burger with onion rings and side of fries, perfectly cooked to our liking and onion rings were sweet and crispy. Fries were also crispy.

Slow poor service. Waited extremely long time for two salads, watching later arrivals being served hot food. Actually got up to search for someone to see if our order was lost. Understaffed. Servers were very nice, not their fault.
