Beautiful Views of the Intracoastal!

We had high hopes for excellent seafood but were disappointed by the shrimp & grits. The gouda grits were bland, very thick & almost clumpy. The gouda seemed to just be a few shreds on the top of the grits & had no noticeable taste incorporated into the grits. There were only about 12 pieces of... read more

This was our second visit in as many years when visiting Sunset Beach with family. We are a large party (10) and the service was excellent. From greeting, seating, and dividing up the check 3 ways, everything was handled very pleasantly. On to the food... these are the best hush puppies in the area and believe me, they are served...

Fresh sea food and the largest menu and selection in Sunset Beach. Not your typical "Calabsh" menu. Sea food any way you want it prepared

Although my sister's drink was a bit heavy on the alcohol, the rest of our drinks and meal were delicious and well prepared. We ate every bite. including the delicious key lime pie!

We eat here every year - the hush puppies are the best anywhere. The waitstaff is pleasant, efficient and knowledgable. The views of the intracoastal waterway are beautiful, the dining room is filled with families enjoying a meal mom did not have to cook, and there is not anything bad on the wide-ranging menu (all good or better!). Standard low... More

I keep returning to Twin Lakes for one reason...the lightly breaded, fresh fried Ipswitch clams! If anyone else in the area has them, I'm unaware of them. 99% of the seafood restaurants I've ever eaten in serve the exact same c.1970 frozen Howard Johnson-type clams. They all taste exactly the same. That isn't the case at Twin Lakes. I was... More

Not very good at all. I ordered a salad and left 80% of it. It was terrible. I admit, I didn't complain. There was no need. They couldn't have corrected the problem. My wife said here seafood plate was average at best. We will not return. There are much better selections in the area.

This was recommended by resort person where we checked in. We arrived early- around 5pm. We had to move several times as A/C vents were leaking on tables underneath them. Server arrived promptly. I got mixed grill broiled which was Maui, Salmon & Yellow Fin tuna grilled. They were all dry & lacked flavor other than a char flavor as... More

Tucked away beneath the Sunset Beach bridge is a hidden gem. The Twin Lakes restaurant is our favorite seafood place in the area. It has the local Calabash style seafood, plus blackened and broiled options. You can get side items ( besides fries) at no additional charge. No wait since it's off the beaten path. Great service with lots of... More

We ordered a fried seafood platter and we're not disappointed. Every bite was delicious. The hush puppies and honey butter were SOOO good we ordered more! They gave us a free dessert for my son's birthday which made his day. Our bill was $55 for 3 adults and 2 children, and we had leftovers for another lunch!
