Well, the beer is outstanding. The fries good. But the Chicken Sandwich is outstanding!
Great music, staff is polite and accommodating. Got here just before the set up outside, and they didn't bother us. Will try the ribs and pulled pork next time...but other patrons said "YES".

Come back to Twin Oaks Tavern to enjoy one of the oldest bar/restaurants in Sonoma County. The Twin Oaks has been under new management for the last year. An cozy outdoor seating area is a venue for music; and the inside performance area is also still there. Great beers on tap including special guest beers. Always fun. Always funky. If Lagunitas is getting too crowded for you, drive around the corner.

6 cold wings for $8.50. Didn't even get celery or carrots. Total blowout.

It is a cool bar and they do have some live music, but I would never come back to eat.

Had read about this place in the San Francisco Chronicle so decided to try it out for lunch since I was in the area wine tasting and it is only 5 minutes off Hwy 101 in a very small Sonoma County town. The tavern has been around for years and has changed very little with the new ownership. It is just like a comfortable pub you would find in the country somewhere with delicious pub like food. They also offer at least 20 different local brews on tap. All we saw were locals in there trying out the beers.

The bartender was very friendly and told us that his favorite challenge is to turn a non beer drinker into a beer lover and with that he proceeded to ask for my preferences in tastes and offered a few samples.

We tried the Buttermilk-Fried Chicken Sandwich and the Yanni Sausage Skillet...both were delicious. Also, do not miss the spicy potato wedge fries. My dining companion who is a gourmet cook and myself thought they were the best we have ever had. The potato skins were so so...rather bland in flavor. There were quite a few items on the menu we would have liked to try but our stomachs could only take so much. A cheese bread was calling my name but just couldn't do it.

They offer mostly free music almost every night of the week and there is a dance floor inside and out. Another friend has gone dancing there and she loves it. Again, it is a lot of locals. Since it was raining, we did not check out the beer garden in back but from the reviews it appears to be quite nice.

I would recommend this place if you are staying around Petaluma or even Santa Rosa and you like casual bar-restaurants with a local touch. It does have a full bar but the beers are the stars here.

This tavern has been around quite awhile. It was just sold in January & bought by the owner of The Hopmonk Tavern. They now serve food. Food was good. Rustic but funky. Went at lunchtime, so not crowded. Waiter was nice & friendly. Enjoyed our visit.
