“Long wait”
Reviewed September 6, 2013

Had an 8 PM reservation & was greeted at the door stating that our table was not quite ready. All parties that came in after us were seated. After waiting for 35 minutes without management addressing us we left. Hostess was not to blame. We watched her greet guests, seat people, pull wine, ring up checks & cash out payments without any help. Manager came by once & asked if she needed help & she said yes, but he kept walking.

“An off night with crab cakes lacking flavor”
Reviewed August 23, 2013 via mobile

Went to Twig's with friends from the area on a Friday night and heard good things about the meals. Liver was good, free range chicken was decent, pasta seemed fine, but avoid the crab cakes. Mine came with Himalayan red rice which was supposed to be spicy, but was very bland. Seasonal vegetables were also lacking any flavor.

The crab cakes seemed to be less crab and more filler, and the sauce was almost like lobster bisque - too thin and without any "kick". Should have been smarter and not ordered crab cakes.

We had a young waitress who struggled with her service, and had trouble with our coffee and dessert order.

Overall, just not a good experience.

“A steady top performer”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We have dined at Twigs a number of times over the years during our trips to Blowing Rock/Boone, N.C. This was our first visiting several years and were happy to discover that they haven't missed a step.
Everything was a what we had come to expect. The ambience, the friendly efficient wait staff and the consistently good food hasn't changed. The restaurant is very pretty and comfortable.
I was a bit concerned after reading some reviews that the place had evolved into a busy bar scene type place but this was not the case on the Thurs. night we dined. The dining area was almost full and the bar, which is closed off from the dining area, was quiet with just a few guests.
The menu at Twigs is interesting and varied. I had the trout and my wife had a halibut special. Both were excellent. We shared a tuna appetizer and it was excellent as well. Mains come with a house salad and starch and vegetables.
We highly recommend Twigs and are sure it will please.

“Friendly accommodating service”
Reviewed July 26, 2013

My husband and I enjoyed the atmosphere but on a Tuesday evening actually had a very long wait. The staff were concerned and said it was unusual. The food was good but perhaps because it was late and the cook had been overwhelmed - I would not say that it was great. My husband had steak and I had fish that did not seem to have been cooked properly. The salads were very good.
