Always busy, food was good and server forgetful.

Daughter & I went in to eat after a long day at the lake. The server messed up my order, but the mistake was in my favor (roast beef sandwich) so no complaints. I've eaten there before and the food has always been pretty good, but they're so busy it seems difficult for the servers to keep up. Will... read more

My family and extended family visited JJ Twigs on our last day of vacation. All of us ordered an appetizer of breadsticks and mozzarella sticks, and pizzas for our meal. The atmosphere was great, service was wonderful, and the food was delicious! I highly recommend this place to everyone!

Went there for lunch on a slow Sunday. We were sat at the bar. Our order came out in about 40 minutes. I ordered the ribeye sandwich. It came out an absolute hot mess. It looked like a McDonald's hamburger patty with all sorts of stuff thrown on it. The waitress said there was a horseradish sauce on it, which... More

First was ok but the second was absolutely TERRIBLE! A party was on second floor and the staff used the excuse they were so busy. Our food took over 45 minutes to arrive. If you know a party is taking place, bring more staff in. We had to get water ourselves.

JJ Twigs has the best pizza at the lake! Seven of my friends and I stopped in last weekend for some great pizza and drinks after experiencing horrible service down the street. The bartender was very polite and made sure our tabs were straight. We will be seeing you soon!

Just had a "lunch" with friends/relatives in the Dierbergs location...nearly a 2 hr wait, marginal food at best and MAJOR attitude from out waitress. One meal never showed up, and another has raw chicken. Kudos to Dierberg's for taking care of the issue, but a big thumbs down to JJ Twigs. I would give it less than one star if... More

We went for dinner here after hearing they had good pizza. We left totally disappointed and frustrated. When deciding on a kids menu item, our waiter had less than glowing reviews of all the kids menu items so we all decided to share pizza. It was ok, nothing fantastic. The restaurant looked dirty and dusty. We waited 30 minutes after... More

I have the most EASY going husband in the world...here goes...placed an order for delivery at 7:06pm tonight, it became complicated because we had a gift card- so my husband said to make it carry out and pick it up- they said to give them an hour. He arrived to pick up the carryout at 8:20pm and the manager told... More

JJ Twigs offers BBQ, burgers and a variety of sandwiches. The ribs were as promised, delicious! The brisket and smoked turkey were okay. The wait staff seemed a little overwhelmed as one of our party did not have silverware and this was not corrected quickly. The ketchup bottles were empty and were pointed out to the server, so she brought... More

The whole family went here our first night on vacation. There was a good variety of pizza, sandwiches and BBQ. We had a $50 GC from restaurant.com which helped offset the cost. The food was very good and were glad to take some home to have for lunch the next day. We also ordered dessert, very good.
