“Good food and good value”
Reviewed November 15, 2013

My wife and I had dinner here. She had the Mostaccioli with meat sauce, which she said was good. I had their Fish Fry that included a very good house salad and fries. The fish here is baked and not deep-fried which means it was not greasy or oily. It was good. The fries were not greasy. Good service. The one thing that concerned us is that we were the only ones eating here.

“Awesome pizza!”
Reviewed July 5, 2013

Pizza is homemade and fresh! Great ingredient choices too. Plus they have specialty pizzas. Great bar area to watch sports, and family type of dining room is also there. Friendly staff.

“A pizza pub”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

Stopped here for dinner. There were only a few people in the dining room and a few people in the bar area. I decided to try their fish fry (all-you-can eat) which they have every day. It is $9.95 and includes fries and a choice of either their homemade soup or a small salad. They make their own salad dressings. I had their salad with blue cheese dressing and it was very good. The fish itself was soggy, bland, and boring. It tasted like the frozen kind you would buy in a supermarket. The fries were crispy and not oily or greasy but they were, however, a bit bland and tasteless. Their fish fry is below average for fish fry’s in this area.

The server was very nice and efficient. The restaurant was clean. I was impressed by the atmosphere as the dining room overlooks a pond with many trees around it and they have a large outside patio. They offer complimentary popcorn.

J.J. Twigs is for the most part a pizza pub and pizza is their specialty. Next time I am here I will try their pizza.

I decided to give J.J. Twigs a solid
