The food is really good, we had fried green tomatoes and the batter was absolutely perfect, so fresh, so light, they were awesome! We ordered a local beer (wow!) with a phillie cheesteak and a stuffed portabello mushroom: everything was so delicious even if for us the portions were very abudant. Our waiter was extremely attent, giving us information about... More

We were really enjoying our starters - first was sweet potato hushpuppies (fantastic) - then truly great fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese but then the remaining food kept coming fast and furiously. Our salads arrived just after the appetizers and then our entrees arrived minutes later. Our table (for four) was filled with plates and serving trays and we... More

We stopped here spontaneously for dinner due to a severe traffic accident on I40. I had shrimp and grits that were excellent - the sauce was amazing. The rest of my group had steak and salmon and a cheese burger. The steak was slightly rare and sent back to cook another minute. All of the meals were wonderful. Great on... More

Our server Jacob was terrific but we waited much longer than normal for our lunches and they were not busy. Two of us ordered the fried green tomatoes with pimento cheese and agreed, though very tasty, it needed 1or 2 more tomato slices and less pimento. My sister's chicken sandwich with ciabatta bread was too much bread and a fat... More

The bar at Twisted oak had very responsive servers and the food and drinks were great. We headed downstairs and accidentally crashed some type of charity fundraiser event, but no one seemed to mind, everyone in Statesvillle is so welcoming!! We then headed to hear live music at the downstairs attached bar and we were not disappointed with the staff,... More

The fried green tomato appetizer is a game changer. They make the pimento cheese in house. It's a bit spicy but not over the top. I had the Asiago chicken dish. It was yummy. My boyfriend had shrimp not grits. He really enjoyed it. The grits cakes added a nice crunch and the sauce was out of this world. The... More
