Still has great food afte rmany years

This restaurant has been here for years and glad to see the quality has suffered since the new bridge went in. Service is great and the food is delicious. Love their hush puppies app. Try to get a seat facing the water.

Always great food and great staff. We try to make it here every year while in Ocean Isle Beach. We had a party of 11 plus 3 children and the waiter got everything right the first time.

based on the reviews i expected a better experience. The atmosphere and decor was somewhat tacky. the food was average at best, even after they sent me the incorrect order the first time. There are much better options available nearby.

Having ventured onto my first beach at the age of two in the 1950s, I am always seeking the older seafood locations that are still up and running as well as serving delicious and delectable food! My husband, daughter, and I found that cherished combination last night at Twin Lakes at Sunset Beach. The exterior looked like a rambling huge... More

This is it! Twin Lakes is the restaurant where my wife's grandmother took her when she was a little girl. Now, her parents are taking my children. It's got to be good to have survived for generations. The food and service was great: blackened flounder and shrimp; fried Cajun flounder and shrimp; fried Captain's platter (flounder, shrimp, clam strips, deviled... More

Hubby and I highly recommend the happy hour. All appetizers are half off and the steamed clams were a hit! Our bartender provided excellent service and added to the great experience. We will definitely return the next time we visit Sunset Beach.

Our dining experience started out great when we were seated (with no waiting) at a waterfront table for two. We waited longer than I would've liked for our server to take our drink order, but she soon brought some delicious hushpuppies and sweet butter. I would've enjoyed them while they were hot if I'd had my drink to go with... More

Always a very good meal. I particularly enjoy the whole flounder and the chowder. My wife always gets the pear salad with tuna. Always clean and fast. Wonderful attentive staff.

Firstly, they start you off with hush puppies and honey butter which is absolutely heavenly. The food is incredible and extremely generous portions. The flounder and mahi mahi were so fresh they nearly jumped off the plate. The waitress was kind, knowledgeable and attentive. They food came out quickly and you could tell the restaurant staff was extremely efficient. This... More
