The Twine Loft is set right on the water. The deck is great for drinks on a warm day. Inside the restaurant serves a set menu in a cozy atmosphere. The food is always interesting( and delicious) with great service.

Trinity has certainly come such a long way over the years. Everything about this community excuses historic class. So when we took our evening meal at the Twine Loft, we already had high expectations and they were most certainly met! The setting is intimate, overlooking the bay with the kitchen staff fully exposed, which is what makes it such a... More

Twine Loft is a cozy and romantic spot with excellent food. We enjoyed a glass of wine on the deck before dinner--a great way to relax and enjoy being on the waterfront. Each of the three courses in the prix fixe meal was delicious. The service is excellent and the wine list surprisingly diverse and sophisticated for such a small... More

Best cod I had on the Island. Service was great. Everything was delicious from the fish to the vegetables. They had a dessert that I couldn't eat so the waitress brought me out the last dessert from the night before. Very service oriented. Beautiful town. Loved everything about it.

This is a shockingly excellent restaurant in a tiny town. One of the best I've visited this year! Offers choice of two dinners. Fresh ingredients. Great servers.

Make your reservation for the Twine Loft and enjoy some great food. Dinner includes an appetizer, main and dessert. They were happy to meet with my gluten-free restrictions. We all enjoyed a fresh salad with berries as the appetizer and while my friends had pork for dinner, I relished some fabulous fresh cod "en papiotte". Wonderful dinner overlooking the water.

We (me,wife and 2 kids - 6 and 8) started our dinning experience on the deck with drinks under blankets (nice touch Twine Loft to provide the blankets). Wife had a Bombay Sapphire martini (no surprise there) and I had a double bourbon with iceberg ice cubes (again - nice touch with ice cubes, Twine Loft!). Kids - Shirley Temple... More

Can't beat the setting. Beautiful renovated fish stage with an outdoor deck you could spend hours on. Food for the most part is delicious--pork was outstanding but salmon was dry (would have preferred cod or another locally wild caught fish). Excellent service and a true oasis.

Excellent meal, reasonable price for the quality. It is a set menu each night with two main selections. On site sommelier to offer wine pairings with the meal. Plan to arrive early so you can enjoy a drink on the back deck - absolutely wonderful. Great service rounds out a wonderful evening.

Service is so great ... welcoming and warm. Informed, knowledgeable cocktail service was so appreciated and the fixe menu was delicious (and so understand why such a small fine dining spot needs to be fixed). Needs some more music to set the atmosphere and encourage conversation among guests.

Thank GoodFood&Drink

The Twine Loft offers delectable dining in an ambiance created by the sound of water, the rays of the setting sun on the bay and the flicker of candle light. Don't forget to reserve your table.

Affordable cuisine, accommodating service and down-home ambiance.
