My husband and I were first time visitors to Ocean Isle Beach and decided to go out exploring. We came upon Twin Lakes but the line seemed long and so we decided to come back the next day right when they opened at 4:30. The hostess was so kind and welcoming and even let us in early. We decided to... More

We visited this restaurant twice in a week because it is that good. They have a varied menu with a lot of good meals. The hush puppies are delicious as well. It's a great place for large groups and families.

We have been coming for nearly 10 years. For some reason, my mother in law looked at reviews this year and quite honestly I became a little nervous... We decided to go anyway. We are sure glad we did! My mother in law said this was the best shrimp she's had so far! Hush puppies are the best. Service was... More

Our friends who are locals suggested lunch here and mentioned it is generally a dinner-only place. It was an easy few steps from the park where a wonderful. open-air market is held every Thursday morning during summer months. I enjoyed a tasty and tropical fruit drink special, along with a pimento cheese with crab sandwich on texas toast. Our friends... More

What a great dining experience! Excellent food. We chose to do broiled seafood and it was absolutely delicious. The hush puppies and honey butter are a delicacy-the best in the area. Someone had recommended that I try their signature drink the Tropical Sunset Punch, let me tell you it was amazing, the kind of drink you imagine having on a... More

This is our favorite place for seafood on the Grand Strand. Have eaten there many times and always have a great experience. We usually stay in Myrtle Beach, so we drive past many other seafood restaurants to get there.

My husband and I were thrilled to find that Twin Lakes is open for lunch as we've always wanted to dine there. We have great respect for the owners and had high expectations. We were disappointed. My husband's shrimp hoagie was served on a plain hamburger bun rather than the proper hoagie roll. My grilled shrimp salad had only 5... More

We were pleased that our wait was minimal, even though we had a party of 9. The service was excellent, our waitress was excellent. The hush puppies were EXCELLENT. I ordered the terryaki chicken, shrimp, rice and fries on the side. The shrimp were very good, but only 5 of them. The rice was quite flat and left somwthing to... More

This used to be "the spot" to take visiting family and friends for a special dinner. The menu was so extensive and wonderful. My Guests were always impressed with both the atmosphere and cuisine. I'm not sure what happened but not only has the size of the menu decreased drastically, the quality of the food also leaves much to be... More

Not sure why we haven't tried this place before now...we'll yes I am, it is because I assumed it was too formal for our preference of "constant casual." I was so wrong! Atmosphere is very casual, views of the waterway are quite nice too. We were in a steak mood, so we both ordered ribeyes. They were cooked just right,... More
