Of all the seafood restaurants we have tried in our almost 30 years of visiting this area, we always end up back here. The choices are numerous (not everything is fried), there is a good selection of wines and beer and they offer petite plates which satisfy without stuffing. Favorites are: shrimp and grits, blackened flounder and shrimp and crab... More

I really wanted to like this place but it just didn't work out. I got the fried seafood platter which turned out to be a piece of flounder. No seasoning no crispness dry. Someone with me got the shrimp and grits it had like five shrimp and at least a whole bag of grits in a large serving bowl. Dry... More

We were looking for some seafood and Twin Lakes was suggested by a local. We went and really enjoyed the scenery. We were met with enthusiasm by the staff and they provided great service throughout our visit. The hush puppies were excellent, but the rest of the seafood was about average (we tried fried shrimp, some cajun seasoned fish, and... More

Worth a visit if you are looking for a nice seafood meal. View was special and it felt great to be right on the water for our meal.

In our humble opinions, Sunset Beach is not a foodies destination, so we lament the fact that there are really no exceptional restaurants at our favorite beach. Therefore we have learned to manage our expectations prior to arrival. Twin Lakes is one of the better locations of a restaurant as it is right on the waterway, so if you can... More

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
