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.
Excellent food and service!! The atmosphere was very hip and quite fun!!
Energetic and casual bar - perfect for coming off the trail and grabbing a great dinner. Dining is more upscale - the food and service are fine dining. Our server was outstanding! We have never had a bad meal. On this visit my husband and I split the Grilled Roman salad - love it, wish I hadn't split it (it was so good!) We both had the special Grouper and it was perfect. The wine selection compliments the servings. We highly recommend Twigs - it's a place for call.
On a negative - the hostess was rude and underdressed! I am hard of hearing and need to be seated back against a wall. The hostess made a scene in the middle of the restaurant telling me that the empty tables in the corner was not available! We were there for 2 hours and the corner tables was NEVER filled! We were seated in the middle of dining room which made it difficult for me to hear the conversation at our table. Additionally, the hostess was underdressed in a short romper. Every time she leaned over a table we saw her cheeks and then some. NOT a viewing for dining!
Four of us for brunch. I had crab cakes. The others had an omelet, open faced sandwich, Turkey, I think. Don't remember the other one. Everything was, as always, wonderful. Food, service, all good.
Wonderful food. Terrible experience. It was graduation night at Appalachian State and it seemed Twigs filled the entire restaurant 100% Between 8:00 - 8:15pm without regard to kitchen capacity. We arrived 8:00 and place was completely filled in 15-20 minutes. Food was excellent. It took TWO HOURS to get it. Every table was multigenerational for their graduates, many with senior grandparents. A two hour wait was excruciating. Possibly some folks booked earlier and arrived late at 8-8:15 but this wasn’t Twigs first graduation night. We never saw or heard from management. Felt insensitive to say the least. We do recommend the great food, but beware any evening they might be over booked.
We had an excellent dinner here in celebration of graduation. The staff was friendly and attentive throughout the meal. We all enjoyed the filet mignon, bow tie pasta with shrimp, the evening’s special of pork chops, and their variety of delicious desserts. Everything was out of this world! We will definitely be back.
We had a wonderful meal, the food was delicious, it was graduation night so a little noisy but it was probably us! Service was good and we were seated on time as well. Would highly recommend this restaurant
We ate here for convenience to our location when we were in town celebrating our daughter’s graduation. The food was excellent, service was great, atmosphere was lovely. It is higher than average but was delicious and the quality was definitely worth the splurge.
Food was expensive and not very flavorful. Overall the restaurant atmosphere was lovely however we were seated in the front section with two cars parked right in front of the window next to which we were seated. . Not what you would expect for this price range.
Excellent food and service. Definitely will dine again!
Our server Ryan was outstanding! A wonderful dinner! We will return!
We had a fantastic time. We were meeting to visit, so the ambience was important. Everybody really enjoyed their food. Our server (Audrey I think) dud an excellent job of interacting and making sure all our needs were met.
One of our favorite restaurants in the Boone /Blowing Rock area!
Consistently good food and service! Restaurant has always been able to honor our table requests!
We will continue to dine here again and again!
My wife, Elizabeth and I took my daughter and son in law to Twigs to celebrate my son in law graduating from college. Our waiter was wonderful. I can’t remember his name but he had a beard. He suggested items to try and he was correct each time. He was very familiar with all items on the menu and the daily specials. Each course was served perfectly timed to replace what was finished. We have eaten at Twigs before but I must say this time was the best ever. We are expecting guests from out of town in a few weeks and will make a point to suggest treating them to dinner at Twigs. Thank you for making our dinner a pleasurable experience. David L Abernethy MD
Excellent service and great food. I would highly recommend trying Twigs if you are ever in the Blowing Rock area.
Twigs was great- we went for a dinner while on our honeymoon. The cocktails were great and we tried the Peach BBQ Duck Tenders which were really good. For dinner we had the pecan crusted trout and the filet with Gorgonzola butter which was awesome. I would highly recommend it for a nice dinner while in Blowing Rock.
Our waitress, I can't remember her name (she let everyone know she was from columbia, sc) was rude. It took her 10 minutes to get us 2 waters, we had to ask her the specials after she blurted out, and I quote "what do you want." She told us the specials, and ask we were ordering our food I asked for no onions on my salad or steak because I am allergic ( not deathly, but I get hives). Our salad came out and there was onions all over the salad, we asked her to take it back, so I didn't even get to eat my salad because I was scared she might just pick them off and bring the salad back. She finally brought us our bread as our steaks were coming out, which the steaks were AMAZING. We never saw her again until we had to ask someone else for drinks TWICE. She finally came back and filled our glasses, and then she asked if we were ready for our check and I asked her for the dessert menu because my husband and I were celebrating our 5 year anniversary. She rambled them off so fast I couldn't understand her so we declined. It took her another good 15 minutes to go run our card. So I was very disappointed in the service we got. It was suppose to be a very special night for us but it didn't go that way.
Food and setting were great. Service was not so good. Server (Savannah) seemed to be in a hurry and was always rushed to get away from the table. She'd ask if we needed anything, but would be gone before we could answer. Disappointed because we felt like we were rushed from the moment we sat down. Will definitely go back, but hopefully won't be in her section.
Excellent service and excellent food. Can’t ask for much more.
We had an amazing night. Our server Ryan was outstanding, great personality and attended to our needs with poise and humor. All the food we ordered was excellent and the presentation was stunning. This place is a keeper. We will definitely go again.
My wife and I dined here after a personal recommendation and perusing the menu online and reading reviews online. The menu is exquisite and the food was as good as billed. Our server came to us flustered and harried, telling us that there problems in the kitchen and blustering through what we could order. Fortunately, given the breadth of the menu and the skill of the chef, we had plenty of quality menu choices available and the food was superb. Our service was almost nonexistent. Another server refilled our water and responded to our request for another glass of wine. We were abandoned. Our server never explained nor apologized for her own lack of attention. Nor did anyone else intervene. We were told by the hostess that the manager was not there tonight. That’s too bad. The restaurant was not busy...? And our reservation was for seven pm. If I were the manager, I would be appalled by our experience. Everyone but our server coped well with conditions. It is sad that we have to report this experience but it was not pleasant given the amount of the bill. And, it is potentially one of the two best restaurants in Blowing Rock. If I was the manager, I would want to know.
Absolute perfection! Great atmosphere! Great meal! Great server (Savannah)! A grand birthday celebration!
The restaurant was well decorated, the waiter was super accommodating and the food was excellent. It was our anniversary and they even comped us a free dessert. The wine selection was fairly extensive and the coffee was great. I give them high marks - especially Scrip who did everything he could to make our evening special.
Filet was perfect. Great service. We will be back!
Great restaurant and food!
Excellent food as always. Ambience is special with lovely lighting in the main dining room. Noise level was just loud enough to be festive but not too loud. We love the food here! One of us usually orders one of the specials which are always very good. I can honestly say we have eaten most of the main courses and never been disappointed. Servers are knowledgeable and proficient.
Very good experience will be back
Service was excellent as was the food!
Thank you Twigs!
We enjoyed a great meal, with wonderful service. There was a very loud group of 3 that were very loud, but other than being annoying, we still enjoyed our evening at Twigs.
Romantic ambiance, great food. Service impeccable. Would recommend to adults.
Excellent, High end selection and drinks. Service was amazing as well. Outstanding experience!
Two dined to celebrate a birthday. We arrived early to enjoy a beverage at the bar. The bar menu was a bit less varied that we had hoped. My wife ordered from the drink specials and it was a bit under-impressive. Service was on par. Afterwards, on the to dining room which is very nicely appointed. The menu was varied and the choices all were temping. We both ordered very well. The food was delicious and ample. We topped it off with desert which was fantastic as expected. After dinner, we returned to the bar area and enjoyed a very talented and entertaining acoustic duet. Twigs remains on our must do list for each visit to Blowing Rock.
Highly recommend this restaurant. Great meal and best key lime pie ever! It is on the fancier and expensive side but we came dressed from hiking and we felt welcomed!
Our FIRST visit days before was excellent; however, on this visit, something was amiss. While our waiter was "nice", he was NOT polished...didn't know the art of "fine dining", essentially. This was my birthday outing and we stated such in our reservation and he never acknowledged this. Unfortunately, because of his mediocre knowledge of menu items, both of us ordered items we weren't 100% happy with (even AFTER asking many questions of him). He didn't know about the wines on the wine menu, either. We love TWIGS but this was a big miss, considering it was my birthday outing.
Great food and service.
We love the restaurant. Service is always
Tuna appetizer has consistently been over
Cooked and is sliced WAY too thick!
Have tried on 3 separate occasions and will
Not order again:(
Everything else has been wonderful !
Overall the experience was really nice. I liked the lights and the ambiance. The food was tasty. The trout was especially good.
We’ve been visiting Twigs for years and always enjoy the trip! We drive an hour and a half just for it. Delicious food, great service, and a fun environment keep us coming back.
Outstanding service and the food is always terrific!
We were 4 people and we all enjoyed whatever we ordered. If i'm ever in Blowing Rock again I will definitely go back. We loved the cosines of the room. Thanks
We had a wonderful Valentine's Day dinner. The menu is quite varied and interesting. My wife had the Trout and she loved it. The bartender got an A+ for the Keir Royale (sp?), a rarity. My beef tenderloin toranados and the sauces that it was served with were wonderful; perfectly cooked medium rare.
We'll be back.
