The staff is friendly and answer questions willingly! The food is great. They offer beer flights so we were able to try several different craft beers. I had the scallop pasta and he had the ribeye and we spent dinner eating off each others plate!...More

Wonderful menu, nice beverage offerings whether ale, vino or spirits, starters are the bomb and entrees are well portioned and delicious. The owners are terrific as well as their staff. The over a century and a half old building provides great ambiance.

Went with friends for an afternoon out. The food was delicious! The wine menu was extensive, offering wine by glass, bottle, or carafe. Highly recommend.

We had a fine meal at Twisted Oak. The atmosphere is very pleasant, and the serving staff are alert but not intrusive. We were impressed by the wine list, which is not only very good, but offers most bottles by the glass and/or carafe. Our...More

Typically doors open one hour before the show to eat. By showtime dinner is over and we usually get a drink for the show and order desert to arrive at intermission.

Pretty sure they can. The bartender we met seemed well versed in mixology.
