“Excellent Food, Great Drinks, Contemporary Flair”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2014

KUDOS to TWISTED MARTINI
Hubby and I have been there 5 times!
The Chefs are TOP NOTCH- their Food is SUPERB! Servers are Polite, attentive and well-informed.

First- Their Happy Hour Specials are just AWESOME- Drunken Mussels, Shrimp & Grits, Pulled Pork Spring Rolls are 1/2 OFF, Martinis for Ladies are also 1/2 OFF and Domestic Drafts, House Wines and well and call drinks are all 2 for 1. Definitely one of the BEST Happy Hours I have ever been part of. Their Martinis are bigger than other places and taste just Heavenly; 2 of my favorites are Mangled Mango and Red Royale.

We had the Excellent Fried Shrimp for Dinner one eve. There are 12 HUGE Lightly Battered Fried Shrimp- cooked to Perfection! Hubby had the Ribs another time and said they were very tender and tasty. One the Best Ribs he has ever eaten. Their French Fries are GREAT! Also had their Prime Rib with au jus was WONERFUL; juicy, tender and cooked to Perfection the way we ordered it!

Must Include few words about their Calamari Appetizer- Theirs is Fresh; Never Frozen like many other restaurants use. That accounts for its wonderful delicate taste!. Calamari is lightly fried to golden Perfection! We order it every time we go out to Twisted Martini.

Their Cheeseburgers at Lunch are also tender and juicy with great flavor and served with mound of their great crispy French Fries.

Give this Marvelous NEW Twisted Martini a try real soon. You will LOVE it! There is an outdoor Patio and Bar for your enjoyment and a romantic Club with DJ s and Live Music to entertain you!

“Dinner Outstanding, Lunch...not so good”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2013

I am sorry to be the first to score lower than others and if we didn't just eat there for lunch they would have received 5 stars for the two dinners we have had there in the past. Lets start with the good. Dinner was Awesome there is no other way to describe it. Both times we ordered the prime rib and it was cooked perfectly and the flavor is way better than other places we eat at. The baked potato's are huge to say the least and I am not sure what they do to cook them but the outside is crunchy like a potato skin and the inside is so soft like whipped potato's. appetizers are out of this world and will make you want more of them but then your meal arrives and you can't even finish that because there is so much food. Drink specials are as good as any other place and their Martini's are larger than most other's. Now for the lunch experience. Cheese sticks are excellent but their marinara is very different. Almost like a tomato paste with bbq sauce in it. The soda is not very fizzy, almost flat. We ordered the prime rib sandwiches and they looked awesome so we were excited by our choice but not so much after the first bite. The au jus that is served with it is very greasy and tastes as well as looks like the prime rib drippings before you add flour and salt to make gravy. The sandwich itself was huge and with plenty of prime rib but it was over cooked or like it sat in the fridge for a couple of days. As always the fries were great. Now I know what the owners who read this are thinking, why didn't you send it back. Well, we could of and we know that but it already seemed like we were complaining too much and we never complain. First mentioning the flat soda, then the marinara sauce tasting funny, I just didn't want the server to think we were trying to get something for free. We kept our mouth shut and paid for the entire bill. Service is excellent, I want to say that straight up but when there is down time I think the staff needs to be learning the menu, the items available, whats in the dishes, etc...This is my third time and my husbands fourth time and every visit the server had to go to the kitchen and come back no less than twice to answer simply questions like...what kind of cheese do you offer for the cheeseburgers. We will be back, just only for dinner. Oh, my husband did say that their cheeseburgers at lunch time are excellent and prepared perfectly with great flavor.

Beer was ice cold, servers were attentive, people watching was great! Fun and casual outside, romantic and more formal inside, with a club right next door... we didnt make it to the club!

“This restraurant is very good”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2013

This restaurant is within walking distance to the Holiday Inn Express. The liquor selection is very good and the food is good as well. The place also has an outside patio which is real nice. I would go this restaurant if at all possible and you do not have to drive. It is a 5 min walk at the most and it is worth it.
