Night time dining with "persnickety" friends.

TWIGS has been around longer than I have lived in Blowing Rock, or 20 plus years. During this time frame I have dined here (exclusively for dinner) by myself, with my wife, and with groups ranging from four (4) to nineteen (19) persnickety individuals. This is a review for four. Make... read more

Loved this restaurant. Had a nice quaint bar with live music on weekends. The chef works magic in the kitchen!

We didn't book a table and it was a busy night, but we were able to eat in the bar. Service was a bit slow, but the menu was excellent and when the food arrived it was first class. Best of all, there was live music from a really super group, three guys who sang and played very well. We... More

my wife and I rented a cabin in BR for the week wanting to better acquaint ourselves with the area). We saw this restaurant 2 days before (on the main BR road) and looked it up. All the reviews were mostly positive and glowing and they were correct. A very nicely adorned restaurant just off the main highway. Our service... More

We started with fried oysters in a lobster cream sauce. The oysters were perfectly cooked with a crunchy cornmeal dusting and the sauce was decadent. My husband enjoyed the fresh trout with a traditional preparation and I loved the crispy roast chicken with a boursin artichoke stuffing. The crispy roasted Brussels sprouts were wonderful. We had a thoroughly wonderful dinner... More

Visited Twigs as part of a networking dinner. We sat in a perfect little room, without noise and distractions. The craft beer list was top notch and everyone was pleased with the house wine. I had the Fish special on cheese grits with asparagus. It was perfect and delicious!! Recommend Twigs for a relaxing meal at a slow pace.

I have lost track of the times we have dined at Twigs. We are taken to the moon and back every time. The food is excellent and the service is world class. I had steak that was cooked to perfection. If you make a trip to Blowing Rock, I would recommend a visit. You won't walk away hungry.

Was in Blowing Rock for a few days and several people told us we had to try Twiggs. We had a pretty large lunch, so we were looking for something kind of light for dinner so we dropped by without a reservation and were seated immediately. Our waiter was top notch and made a couple of recommendations, including the oyster... More

We have eaten at Twigs in the past because their crab cakes are excellent. We ate there recently, and although my crab cake dinner was fine, my husband's pasta dish tasted peculiar. I offered to exchange with him, but I didn't like the taste either. We aren't fussy diners, but in this case, we did tell our waitress who brought... More

This restaurant is wonderful. The food was so good we went back three nights in a row! The bar food is just as good as the restaurant. Staff are efficient and courteous. Live music on the weekends. Lots of fun.
