Twigs Restaurant and Bar
Twigs supports local farmers and co-ops whenever possible. We source local, fresh, seasonal ingredients. Each and every dish is prepared to order by our highly trained kitchen staff and served with a warm smile from our attentive waitstaff.
It was a busy night, but we had multiple issues. Constantly waiting on drink service. Bar drinks were horrible. Dinner took an hour and a half, and the food came out like warm. For the price, the food and service did not meet expectations.
Recommended by friends for a nice dinner out with my wife. Wait in the bar did not feel inviting. However a kind gentleman did come serve us after we gave up waiting on the bartenders. After being seated, our waitress experience was subpar. The food was delicious. Next time, maybe we will have better luck!
We had been to Twigs before and our last visit wasn't so good so we decided not to go back when we visited Blowing Rock. Well it had been several years and I had read a lot of good reviews about Twigs so we decided to give it another try. The first thing we encounter is a crying baby. We asked not to be seated next to the baby. I don't understand why people with babies want to take them to high end restaurants. There is an Outback right up the street. When you are paying over $70 for a dinner for two, you don't want to hear a crying baby. Okay, after the baby, my husband and I order two different soups, the broccoli cheddar the tomato bisque. Neither one was very good. It was downhill from there. All I can say is it will be a very long time for us to try it again.
We had the pecan encrusted trout. We're big trout lovers and eat it whenever a restaurant offers it. Both my wife and I said that this was the BEST we've ever eaten. The waitstaff was very friendly and attentive. Highly recommend!
Excellent service from beginning to end. Great food and experience overall
Always love our time at Twigs! Food is amazing and the ambiance is lovely!
Waitress was slow and non attentive. Had to get own silverware, water. Walked away from us on at least 2 occasions when trying to ask for silverware. Meat was cooked less than rare when asked for medium rare. Waitress was no where to be found when trying to send it back for additional cooking and no where to be found when we were done with our meal. We will not be returning.
A terrific experience for all six of us. Dinner was prepared awesomely.
Food was fantastic and service was great. Only downside was the amount of food for what you pay. If you don’t get an appetizer(which are small BTY), then you will leave hungry. We ordered the fried green tomatoes and it came with only 3 slices?? I know a tomato does not cost that much and it isn’t that much more effort to cook the rest of the tomato and for $9? Come on now. But what do you expect going to a restaurant like this. Would we go again? Yes. Only because the food was that good.
Lovely intimate restaurant. Very quiet until a loud party of 6 were seated beside us! Waitress was friendly and helpful. Service was rather slow. Our only complaint. Salmon and Shrimp & Grits were both excellent!
New server, forgot to order appetizers, and wasn’t given any backup.
Food was good to pretty good, but felt as if we were eating at a Hometown Buffet cafeteria. How’s that for ambiance.
Then, when we got the bill, finally, they DID remember the appetizer in addition to coffee we didn’t have.
That took another 20 minutes, until we finally went to the front and checked ourselves out!
We celebrated our 8 year anniversary here and it did not disappoint! The food, the service and everything in between was amazing!
The food was prepared very nicely. The service was good, timely and well done.
It was a very nice evening.
Food is way overpriced and just ok. The food and atmosphere is very dated.
Great food and atmosphere. The Shrimp and Grits were the best accompanied by a
Crab Cake appetizer. We WILL be making this a frequent dining experience.
Pricey for choices on menu. Sent back the 26.00 chicken which was so dry and miniature portion. I was told the chef prepared
“Airline chicken”. Would not recommend and return.
The atmosphere is beautiful and always look forward to going there , but the service this time was not very good the server was not attentive and forgot everything we asked for and had very little suggestions to offer about the menu or wine
selections they have been closed for maintenance day so possibly the servers were not on point or organized for this evening after Labor Day
Out food was good but the service was very slow. Not sure if this is typical since it was our first-time.
We eat here every time we are in BR. It never disappoints. Thank you!
A great meal with my daughter. The trout and crabcakes were delicious and wonderfully prepared. Our server was very friendly and competent. I will definitely be back the next time I visit Blowing Rock.
A very good experience
Service and food both subpar. Pasta with chicken was very dry. Appetizers were average. Crab cakes were good but not spectacular. Somewhat disappointed as this was one of my favorite restaurants for many years. Have not been back in some time and will probably not be going back again.
Service not as slow as usual. Room always a little too warm and quite noisy. Very loud table beside us making it especially noisy. But food good and waitress quite pleasant, trying hard to service all the tables she had.
Yummy food and we had the best service!!! They really made our birthday celebration special.
A marvelous affordable alternative to fast food and Main Street.
Like setting and ambiance. The cheese plate was excellent. The trout dish was blend. It would have been better with a light white wine and lemon sauce. No French wine available by the glass and very few by the bottle.
Very nice place with excellent filet mignon. We arrived early but were informed our table would be available at and not before the reservation time. We were directed to the bar which was busy but we found comfortable seats. We waited for the waite staff but were told to order and pay for our drinks at the bar and then take them to our own table ourselves. Others were told the same thing but we thought it was a bit strange. The wines we ordered though were very good and reasonably priced. So after an odd start at the front end and in the bar itself things got MUCH better. The menu was interesting and varied and the waiter was engaging and knowledgable. We had a pimento cheese plate appetizer which was obviously house made and quite good. We both had filet and the included sides and they were very well prepared, the right temperature and delicious. We opted out of dessert as we were well satisfied. It looks like it is a good place for a nice evening as the band was getting going in the bar and the bar was full. We would definitely recommend Twigs for a fine evening.
We had a great experience, so I am glad we went there. However, I did feel that it was over-priced for the quality of the food. We had 4 adults and a child without any alcohol for the table and it was 200 without tip. We had planned to spend that amount, so that wasn't the issue. The issue was that while the menu sounds amazing, the food didn't deliver. My vinaigrette was so vinegary that I couldn't eat it, I think they didn't stir it before ladling it onto the salad. The lamb I had was delicious, but so tiny and by the time I got it my potatoes and peas were cold.
The service was phenomenal (they were great with my daughter which I was not expecting) and the ambiance was great, felt very special, but I honestly felt the food did not meet the price and ambiance.
Replaced quinoa for English Peas. $2.00 up charge. I don't mind paying for the upgrade but 1/4 cup of English peas just didn't cover the upgrade or fill my tummy. Food was delicious.
Outstanding food and service.
Great place to eat !!!! Love the bar area and the specials each week great wine list and choc martini
Fabulous food and ambiance, knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. More than we expected in every way!
Always our "go to" when friends come to town. Make reservations for sure. The special was a fabulous New York strip. My husband loved it. I enjoyed the mountain trout and others enjoyed lamb chops and a beautiful piece of salmon. Our server was the most well informed cheerful young lady who brought a ray of sunshine every time she checked on us. We will be back!
Excellent dinner celebrating my husbands birthday. Great selections on the menu and the specials were fantastic.
We had a great waiter- Jordan who made our evening very special.
Very good liver and onions. Excellent server - Jordan H. We will certainly return.
Service was seriously lacking. Glasses sat empty for 15 minutes or more. Server was new, but it doesn't excuse the service. We had to ask for bread when other tables around us got their bread automatically. The only food that had any seasoning was the caprese salad. My meats were not seasoned at all. This restaurants attempt at service was an epic failure.
We ordered the Filet Mignon and Crab Cakes. They were absolutely delicious!!
Pleasantly surprised by the quality of the food and the charming ambiance. Very tucked away off the highway through a shopping area. Service was excellent and well timed. The window table we requested was saved for us. All in all an excellent meal. We would highly recommend
Twigs is always on our go to list.

Great experience. From the food to the service, I could not have asked for a better dinner. I would highly recommend to anyone in the area.
