“Interesting menu - fondu on a rock, nice decor, reasonable prices”
Reviewed May 9, 2014

You can cook your own meats on a "hot rock", nice variety of sandwiches, burgers, gluten free items and vegetarian. Nice interior, good place for couples or parties. Our service was slow because of 2 large parties at the time, but they took off from our bill because of the delay. Hubbie had a steak, I had a sandwich - both very good. Will definitely try again and sample cooking on the rock! Would recommend reservations, we had a 30 minute wait, but we were staying in the hotel so they called our room when the table was ready.

“Back for Dinner”
Reviewed April 16, 2014 via mobile

After a great gluten free lunch we headed back for dinner. We tried the hot rock cooking. It was a cool experience and the food was excellent as was the service. Server was great and took time to explain the rock cooking to my daughter .

Only negative was the potatoes and veggies were not really warm enough .

Try a bunch of the sauces it is worth while. We really liked the raspberry one with the pork.

“Night out at Twigs in Rochester MN”
Reviewed April 4, 2014

We were traveling to Visit the University of MN Rochester Campus with my son. We came a day early and decided to stay at the Best Western Soldiers Field which is connected to Twigs. We took advantage of the nice restaurant being connected to our hotel and decided to have our dinner meal there. The service was excellent, very friendly and knowledgable staff there. Our waitress filled our water up before we could even finish a glass. I highly recommend the Chicken Kabobs and the Ruttabega Fries w Raspberry Curry Sauce. That is what I ordered and both of those were excellent. My husband had the Old English Fish and Chips w/Malt Vinegar and liked that and my son had the Peri Peri Shrimp w/Afro-Portugese Sauce which he loved but he said the sauce is very spicy to order it on the side and he also had a Piggyback burger. The portions were very good sized and the food was good quality and filling. If you are a coffee drinker they also had great coffee there. The restaurant had great ambiance and was nicely decorated a fun place with many options and a full menu.Would recommend it

“Good service”
Reviewed February 1, 2014

We had wild rice soup and is at the top of our list for flavor. This was only a snack in mid-afternoon. Have eaten complete meal several times before & found they are always helpful and friendly, with good food, at a good price.
