Very friendly staff, our waitress was great. Two of us got rare tuna and it was awesome. One got a steam pot and was disappointed with the quantity of food. The flounder wasn't very good either. We were disappointed with the prices, pretty high. Pros and cons!

Trying to escape the hustle and bustle of Myrtle Beach? Travel 20 miles North to the mainland of Sunset Beach, N.C. You will find a family owned establishment with employees that have been there for more than the summer. Along with that comes food that has stood the test of time. The fresh catch of the day, flounder, was served... More

I never understand why a restaurant on the water uses frozen seafood. If the fish wasn't frozen then I would simply rate it as lousy cold fish. The shrimp that went with it were those little shrimp you find on Chinese buffets. Disappointing for sure. On a happier note, the martini was good and our sweet waitress Carla was wonderfully...

To the gentlemen who said TL is "dirty", shame on you. As a local double shame on you. Everytime I have ever visited Twin Lakes for dinner the restaurant is always clean, the staff friendly and helpful. Full of smiling faces and excellent food. As a local I have gone to this establishment on a regular basis and have always... More

We had a group of 13 for dinner. The wait staff and hostess were superb. Even with that large number of people she was able to remain calm and not get a single order wrong. I got the broiled scallops and shrimp.... melt in your mouth great! Would recommend to anyone in the Ocean Isle, Sunset beach area.

Twin Lakes Seafood Restaurant is a relatively small restaurant catering to locals and vacationers alike. It is located on the intercoastal water way, adjacent to the overpass to Sunset Beach Island and managed by one of the local families. They have some of the best seafood to be found in the area and the prices are quite reasonable. The staff... More

There are a lot of mediocre seafood restaurants in the Ocean Isle /Sunset Beach/Calabash area. None take reservations. Twin Lakes allows you to "call ahead" and thus limit your wait. No need to eat a 4:30 to avoid waiting for a table. There is a varied menu that allows those that want the "Calabash" fried seafood experience to be happy... More

I visited Twin Lakes a couple of years ago during my sister's wedding. I came back an the food, service and atmosphere is still amazing. From the ocean front view to the friendly smiling faces to the clean environment when you walk in the door, you truly experience southern hospitality at it's best. The Black & Bleu NY Strip is...
