Pleasant experience

Enjoyed our dinner very much. We sat at a two top by the window overlooking the Intercoastal Waterway. Bridget was our server and she was excellent. I had the crab cakes and my husband had the mixed grill. Bridget recommended the succotash for the side dish and we both enjoyed it. We finished... read more

We really enjoy this restaurant. It is a bit pricey, but I do order crab cakes. They are the best! The Hushpuppies are addictive and worth going for alone. The clam strips are real clams and when asked to be cooked extra crispy are little pieces of crunchy heaven.

Went here with a group of 20 from a wedding weekend, the food was good (not great but not red lobster either) and the service super slow, but again we had 20 people- otherwise the restaurant was cute and not too crowded. Good cocktails, while the smoked Gouda grits sound great, theyre not.

Friends took us to Twin Lakes specifically for local seafood. While the selection was extensive and all of us ordered different items, none of us were particularly excited about the meal. Bland and tasteless were two of the adjectives that came to mind. The restaurant serves a basket of "hush puppies" to each table which certainly seem popular. They are... More

When a restaurant is celebrating its 45th Anniversary, you know they must be doing something right. Jonathan W. Yuricek, Master Chef from NY is a genius when it comes to creative NY style cheesecake. The Key Lime Cheesecake was to die for. The rest of the dinner, fresh broiled flounder was terrific. Service was outstanding. Will definitely go back!

It has been a long, cold winter and a sure sign of better weather to come is the opening of Twin Lakes. We have been dining here for years as tourists and now locals and have come to expect consistently good seafood and excellent service. We enjoyed our meal but it was a bit below what we have come to... More

My husband and I have been going to Sunset Beach for 30 years and don't consider a complete trip unless we have at least one meal or more at Twin Lakes. Service is always great and the food fresh and cooked just like you like it. The hushpuppies with honey butter can't be beat. Can't wait until our next visit!

I've eaten at Twin Lakes while visiting in the area for several years. That I keep going back year after year says a lot about the place. Service is always good too.
