Large restaurant with a good bar and a great view over the intracoastal waterway and Bird Island. The food and service were good. I had a mixed grill that was quite good (not outstanding). The wine (I had a Riesling) was good. Music was unobtrusive. The worst part of the meal was the nasty bread substitute with cheese dip (instead... More

First time at this restaurant and the meal was very good.. They brought out a basket of hot Hush Puppies that were perfectly done. We had 2 dinners from the Senior section, Clam Strips/Shrimp with Gouda Grits, and Flounder plate. Also had the Broiled Fantail Shrimp and a Gouda and Pear Salad with Shrimp. Everyone in our party was completely... More

I had not been here in years but noticed their menu has changed and heard they have a new chef. Regardless, we were delighted that the menu accommodated our groups needs. I like crab legs and peel and eat shrimp, my husband likes blackened mahi mahi or other fish, my sister likes grilled shrimp, my mother wanted the fried calabash... More

We have been eating at Twin Lakes for over 15 years and for the past couple of visits we have been very disappointed. I will say that the word disappointing is an understatement.This very evening I had scallops and my husband had mahi mahi.. Both dishes were not of good quality, over cooked and very unappetizing. We do not recommend... More

I've been to this area of the coast 3 times now, and Twin Lakes is CONSISTENTLY the best place to eat fresh seafood. I've eaten here at least 6 times in 3 years and the food is always fresh, hot, and fantastic. Best crab cakes, hands down. Servers are always friendly, polite, and attentive. You should DEFINITELY eat here!

Another guess and tbe Seniors seafood player, which he found very good. I myself choose the seniors. The clam strips are fried. I did get my scrimp snd flounder broiled. Very good. As with any seniors choice,... More

Visited Twin Lakes restaurant in Sunset Beach. It is a typical beach town seafood restaurant. There was a good assortment of fish either grilled or fried. My wife had the grilled Mahi Mahi. She said it was good but lacked a Mahi taste. Mostly tasted like a standard white fish. I had the grilled salmon. It tasted like a poor... More

We had heard that Twin Lakes Seafood was the best restaurant in Sunset Beach so in all fairness, our expectations were heightened when visiting. On the positive side, our service was quite good; we were never left wanting anything and our table attendant had a great sense of humor. Our food, however, could have been better. My mahi was a...

The service was good, and the pear and blue cheese salad good; however the fried seafood was poorly cooked. The breaking would not stay on the items, and the flounder looked like it had been frozen too long. We were very disappointed.
