Stopped here for dinner after arriving in town on the recommendation of a friend. Burger was overdone, fries so so. Did not try any of the Pan Asian specialties, so can't speak to that. Some of the other dishes I saw, looked good and it is definitely popular. Give it a try if you like the unusual.

My foodie friends insisted that we eat here. They exclaimed about the patio and the river and the food. The food was ok, not great, not awful. But on the patio we could not see or hear the river. We were hugely disappointed.

Stopped in for lunch on our way through town. Place looked OK from the outside, interior was a little odd but not too bad. Food was bland, order was incorrect and service was indifferent. Will look for another spot next time in Salida.

Service was just average, not great or poor. The seating by the water is so overgrown you can't see the water, you can hear it though and that is relaxing, beats indoor dining don't get me wrong but not worth the hype. The food was mixed, ok and horrible Pad thai was decent. The killer for us was the southwest... More

We sat outside. While my wife had an "entree" the other 3 of us really had salads/appetizers. They were wonderful. A tribute to the beauty and quiet atmosphere is reflected in the fact that we conversed for 3 hours.

Great place for lunch. Love the creekside dining especially when the temps go up. Interesting menu. Love the sandwiches.

We were able have our puppy at our feet on the outside patio listening to the gurlging creek. We had a lovely lunch. I enjoyed the Pad Thai while my daughter loved the Lasagne. We look forward to coming back!

Somehow we've driven through Salida a dozen times and missed the Twisted Cork but it will be our new favorite lunch stop. Nice outdoor patio with a creek just below, tasty menu and premium wine, beer and spirits. What more do you need for a summer afternoon!

I drove by on my way into Salida after a morning of hiking, and after checking Trip Advisor reviews (thanks everyone!), I decided to give this place a try. The exterior doesn't reveal the promise of this tasty gem. I enjoyed the patio, and although most of the tables don't have a direct view of the creek down below, the... More
