We went here for a simple dinner and found more than expected. The restaurant is set back from the main road and appears to have a rather simple exterior. Inside, there is a bar area as well as a dining area. The dining area is very well appointed with white table cloths. Client attire range from business casual to jeans... More

I have probably reviewed this restaurant in the past but it is worth doing again. I LOVE this restaurant. I have never had a bad meal here. Of course I almost always order sautéed mountain trout and I have never been disappointed. I get the gorgonzola salad dressing which is excellent. Most recently one of my guests had veal liver...

Have eaten here many times. it has very good food and very good service. The steaks are great. It has a bar separate from the restaurant that you can go to before or after a meal. Good atmosphere but a little pricey.

Whether you're ordering the bar filet, the Mahi Mahi or the duck bite appetizer, Twigs provides atmosphere in the form of the setting, the locals or the band that's playing. Great drink specials and ambiance make this a cut above an average restaurant. never disappoints!

The filet, pork medallions, salads and dessert were all perfect as always! We will be back soon, as always. This our favorite place in the high country. The crab cakes are the best we have ever had too!

The lamb and duck are great choices. Don't let the building's exterior fool you, it is a fantastic romantic dinner spot. Staff is very friendly and the food is excellent.

Stopped in on a Sunday night at just after 9. We had been out hiking and needed to find a place that was open. Their website said they served until 10. We were met at the front door by 3 young women who did not appear excited to see us... Like they were hoping to close early because there was... More

While staying the weekend in Blowing Rock we asked for recommendations for a nice dinner restaurant and Twigs was one mentioned. We made reservations online and arrived at our scheduled time. We were greeted and seated without any wait as it wasn't terribly crowded in the restaurant. My wife had the crusted trout and said it was very good. I... More

Great meal and service. We were looking at homes and chose Twigs. I order the Kobe flank steak and my wife the stuffed chicken. Both excellent! For desert we had the salted pecan brownie al a mode. Really good. Only complaint, no espresso machine...come on guys this is 2016 coffee is good but espresso and cappuccino are better!

Every time my boyfriend and I visit Blowing Rock we always make our way to Twigs. We stumbled across it one night since all the other local restaurants were packed or about to close. Everything from the atmosphere to the service to the food was amazing. We will be going back this weekend for my Birthday!
