My wife and I wanted to take our son for a birthday dinner. He wanted a good steak. We tried a couple of other restaurants in the area, but the waits were outrageous. We passed Twigs and I remembered reading some good reviews on TripAdvisor....More

The ONLY reason I didn’t choose 1-star is because of the stellar filet. Aside from that, it was a special celebration and they sat us next to an incredibly cold, drafty window in “the fireplace room”, some cheap electric thing that wasn’t even on. The...More

Had a wonderful dinner here with my wife. The flank steak and pork tenderloin were both among the best meals we have had dining out, and we lived in the Bay Area for 12 years! Highly recommended!

We had a fantastic dinner experience at Twigs in Blowing Rock, NC. The filet mignon and the New Zealand Lamb Chops were soooo good. The restaurant is decorated with soft lighting with a fall/Halloween twist.

Twigs is a quaint restaurant with a nice atmosphere. It is more charming outside then in but it was still a nice atmosphere. The food was very good and the service was too. The only problem I encountered was that I have a shellfish allergy...More

When my husband asks where I would like to dine, Twigs is always on the list. Love the oyster appetizer in lobster sauce and the filet with the crunchy onions. The trout is suburb.

We had an excellent meal at Twigs. My wife had flank steak cooked to perfection and I had a beautifully prepared shrimp & grits. Great service, great food, what else could you want.

While there is a patio, I am not sure about pet friendly. This is a fine example dining establishmentioned. There are lots of gluten-free options. The food quality, staff and atmosphere are spectacular. Hope this helps!
