Walk right in and you have entered the most friendliest local diner. As a stranger to town, you feel right at home. The fragrances of great american diner food hits you right away. The instant stares you get from the patrons as they look up when you enter turn into immediate facial expressions of "Welcome, you came to the right... More

I want to really like this place, because it is locally-owned, and a landmark in Galena. But, the food is really just average. My Western omelet was curiously bland. The hash brown potatoes were clearly from a package. Also, be warned, Twinney's does not take credit cards.

This is a local owned, local run, and local supported. It is not fancy nor large. Serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. Not a huge menu. Think diner like. Not fine dining. No alcohol. Very reasonable prices. Cash only. Service was very friendly and very efficient. Food was served quickly, and piping hot. Some items homemade - soups, salads, Mac and... More

Stopped by for breakfast while passing through on 301. Good food and friendly service. Note that they are cash only. When I tried to pay by cc, the waitress said not to worry that I could stop by later or send a check. How small town is that?! Went to bank next door and got cash from the ATM. Definitely... More

This is a local place serving decent diner type food. I've dinned in for breakfasts and always used a credit card. This weekend I went to the takeout counter, ordered breakfast and paid in cash. My change was handed to me and the woman promptly walked away. Change due was $12.00 I received $2.00. I stood there for 10 mins... More

I'm not sure there are many places where you get such quality food for the value. Fortunately for us... there are quite a few of them in our backyard on the Eastern Shore of Maryland... and Twinny's is one of them. We were here for breakfast... and I always get their pancakes... and they are in my top five of... More

Very small place...nothing fancy...have been there several times for early breakfast and it was always good. Waffles, eggs, bacon, pancakes, the usual. Fortunately I had cash in my pocket to cover the bill. In the hunting season, this place is inundated in the early morning with hunters in their camo outfits. Must be a sign the place it good.

I mean that in the nicest way. This is a very popular "little" place. I think there is about 15 tables in there. Food is good. Service is good. Quick in and out. We have only every been here for breakfast, so I can't comment about lunch and dinner. Never disappointed. Don't judge when you drive by.

Usual breakfast fare, including great pancakes and delicious sausage. She-crab soup and a variety of subs offered for lunch. This is a cash only establishment. Fortunately, there is a bank with an ATM machine located next door. Gets quite busy on weekend mornings. Not a large place, so seating is limited. Warm, friendly environment, where everyone knows each other. Definitely... More
