Looking forward to going back soon. Has a low profile in mall from outside but is a real gem inside. Great food. Best steak I’ve had in long time and seafood was very good too.

A group of us come to MOA every year and eating at Twin City is a must! The food is amazing and the desserts are to die for. A few things that at least one of us order every single year are masala chicken, creamed corn, crusted walleye, key lime pie and cheesecake. It is our intention to eat at Twin City every year we are there, regardless of how many new restaurants are there.

Prime Rib was delicious as well as the Blue cheese filet medallions. Our server, whom i unfortunately do not recall her name (caucasian female with short buzz hair) was so awesome! I was in town for work and had an extremely long day and she assisted my wife in choosing some great selections for us!

Enjoyed the food. I just became a vegan and had the flatbread w/o cheese. The pesto was delicious on a superthin crust, with lots of shitake mushrooms and sun-dried tomato strips. The salad, the burger and the French Dip were top notch. We had a wonderful server who was funny and efficient.

We go so my wife can get her salad with steak and I generally get the grilled yellowfin tuna sandwich both which are generally pretty solid choices. The time before I made the mistake of trying something different, a lunch special shrimp taco's and they were very forgettable. I've also had the ribs in the past and they were good. So I advise stay with the menu standards/favorites they have those nailed down consistently and be weary of the specials.

We both got a burger which was prepared to the proper doneness of medium (maybe a little less than med). Salt and vinegar fries are good but a little strong on the vinegar. Garlic coleslaw is ok but it was warm. Very small serving of coleslaw. Overall, the food was good but not overly good. Price was a little high for the quantity.

Despite being a semi regular diners at TCG, the gave us a poor table, when others were available. It seemed that a couple with two teenage children was not their preferred customers. The waiter was standoffish. Seemed he did not like that only one of us ordered wine. Asked if our daughter could get the $14.00 children's portion of steak, and were told, only if we paid $21.00 for the four ounce steak. The wine did not not come a very long time. They were not up to their usual standards, mostly due to the waiter, who was inattentive and had a poor attitude.

We have been to TC Grill many time for many years. I was really disappointed with our last visit. It was for my birthday, and there was no mention made of that (not a huge deal) . Our table was round, with the flaps that pop up, however they did not work well, and left you plates sliding towards you. My son tried to prop one up, and pinched his girlfriends arm pretty good. The service was very mediocre. The food was inaccurate (mushrooms on the wrong steak), and when it was brought out, the servers had no idea who it was to be delivered to. My peppercorn steak was tasty, but the sauce resembled warm A1 sauce. Baked potato was warm at best, and not cooked enough. Sorry, I am being very frank, but a $500.00 meal should have been better all around.

Fantastic. Twin cities grill gives you a full flashback-reality of a mix of 1950's cruise while still holding its classy and high class value. The food keeps its variety making it worth every penny you spent on it from the waiters that know how to please with their expertise. From the floor up, you can just feel as if you're in a once in a life time opportunity every time you stepped through door; which makes you come back for more. Nothing bad can be said about twins cities grill besides not being able to live there!

Twin Cities Grill has normally been one of my favorite places to eat due to the great food and fabulous service. We went last night for dinner, and literally the entire experience was HORRIBLE! It took almost 10 minutes greeted. I ordered a glass of wine, her a Bacardi limon and water, and my daughter a chocolate milk. Server came back with my wine, white milk for my daughter and nothing for my friend. I asked if hers was coming, he said oh yes. Minutes later comes back and says they don't have limon, so she ordered a spiced captain and coke. Our serve came back with a captain white rum, which we just blew off, as it was finally a cocktail! Than my salad came out, and I asked if we still got that delicious bread, and he seemed startled and said oh yes, I'll be back. 5 minutes later comes back asking how everything is... I ask for bread again. Our meals come out, and still no bread, and my side is wrong. I ask for the correct side and tell him we no longer need the bread.. I mean perhaps the yeast was rising! 3 shrimp in, and I find my shrimp half unshelled. Continue eating, hoping its 1, yet it was 4. At this point I think we're on the show punked, as this is not normal for here, yet WOW! I wasn't going to review, yet the more I think about it, the more frustrated I get. Working for Lettuce in the past, I know the training is extensive and you are expected to be knowledgeable and follow the proper steps of service. I am ashamed of this experience, and the money spent.

$8.00 for a small cup of cheese curds was ridiculous! I can get a better value at the State Fair. We decided to bring family from California to the Twin Cities Grill for a Minnesota experience. This restaurant used to be one of our favorites, but we have not been here for years. The Minnesota wild rice chowder was still excellent, but the portions of the fish and chips and chopped salad were disappointing for the price. The ribs were good.

The waiter was rushing us out. Water was not replenished. The bill came before we were finished. He started to take a plate before one of the guests was finished. When taking the payment folder he asked if we needed change; this question is in poor taste and presumptuous, and we definitely needed change! Food was adequate, but did not compensate for the service. Will not be returning.
